Are you just like the Unabomber? Of course not, but that's what the climate deniers at the Heartland Institute are saying.
Recently in Chicago, the liberatarian think tank commissioned billboards that compare good, decent Americans who believe in climate disruption to murderous psychopaths like Charles Manson and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. Decades of lying on behalf of the coal, oil and natural gas industries seem to have distorted the Heartland Insitute's view of what's right and what's wrong.
It's not funny. It's not even controversial. It's unacceptable. Tell the Heartland Institute to apologize for its hateful ad campaign!
To most of us, it's clear that climate disruption is already happening. From extreme droughts in Texas to an almost snowless winter in Boston, it's obvious that something is going on and Americans are taking action. Last week, we helped deliver over 800,000 comments to the EPA in support of its historic proposal to limit industrial carbon pollution and curb global climate disruption.
Big Coal and Big Oil are running scared and The Heartland Institute's despicable ad campaign is a sign that they're getting desperate.
Show Heartland that we won't stand for this last ditch effort to protect big polluters.

Like the majority of Americans, I believe that we must take action to seriously address climate disruption. Please apologize for the despicable billboard comparing me and my fellow citizens with the Unabomber.
