Climate Scientists To Heartland Institute: Stop Whining

Climate scientists like Michael Mann, Ben Santer, and Kevin Trenberth, whose emails were stolen by a hacker and then distorted by the Heartland Institute in the Climategate smear campaign, have written an open letter to the Heartland Institute following its own inadvertent leak of documents, saying “we would be remiss if we did not point out that the Heartland Institute has had no qualms about utilizing and distorting emails stolen from scientists.” The scientists agree with Heartland’s newfound respect for the sanctity of private documents, but ask the organization to stop “spreading misinformation about climate research and personally attacking climate scientists to further its goals.”
