High-School Student Tells Heartland Institute To Stop Climate Denial Curriculum | Corey Husic, a 17-year-old high school student from Pennsylvania, is sending a message to Joseph Bast, President and CEO, Heartland Institute that he cease and desist his effort to bring climate change denial into our schools. Al Gore’s Climate Reality has a petition to allow people to join Corey in standing up for reality. They have also made a video of children explaining that global warming is fake and gravity is just a theory — because, they say, they learned it in school.
NOTE: One in a series of posts about the Heartland Institute’s inner workings, from internal documents acquired by ThinkProgress Green. ThinkProgress is among several publications to have published documents attributed to the Heartland Institute and sent to us from an anonymous and then unknown source. The source later revealed himself. Heartland Institute has issued several press releases claiming that one document (“2012 Climate Strategy”) is fake and asserting other claims regarding the other documents. ThinkProgress has taken down the “2012 Climate Strategy” document as it determines the document’s authenticity.
