    The Pacific Institute was co founded by Gleick, this letter is for public consumption the letters from their attorneys are not currently as per A Watts at his blog. Note this is a public domain document as it is a open letter and is not copyrighted material.

    At the link above they have embedded links in the document pointing to the documents cited in this letter. Paul Erlich's wife is on the BOD, funny given how wrong Erlich has been in all his doomsday projections....

    I'm curious: has the memo been proven to be a forgery?

    If so, where and by whom?

    There is no indication that it was created by anyone at Heartland, that is why they are insisting on an investigation. They has identified the stolen materials and seem to be pursuing legal action on those.

    This reminds me of the similar feeble efforts of the Surprise Tea Party and Joe Arpaio in their quest to show the ineligibility of Obama.. much ado about nothing except to destroy the livelihood of another organization that they deem should be demonized.

    When you read the Fakegate blog.. it comes to conclusions of guilt, without benefit of due process for Gleick.. so the whole thing needs to be thrown out because of this intellectually dishonest process..

    Fakegate is fake...

    So, basically, you're declaring it a forgery because Heartland says it's a forgery.

    That's what I thought.

    Along with a variety of people who have examined the forgery both believers and non believers in MMGW.

    I am enjoying the show immensly. It will be more fun when the lawyers get involved and truth comes out.

    BTW so far in this situation there is only 1 proven liar and lawbreaker that would be Gleick.

    I don't have a horse in this race either way. There are plenty of people who argue to the contrary, including some dude who did a textual analysis which concluded the likely author was Joe Bast.

    But let's not lose sight of the fact that the content of the "faked" memo has been corroborated in other Heartland materials.

    So, we can conclude what many of us have known all along: Heartland is a front group for industry and conservative benefactors to muddy scientific debates for the purposes of their own continued enrichment, and, thus, have no credibility whatsoever on these topics.

    Glad we got that out of the way.

    Well the fabricated memo has the Koch Bros funing their climate research when if fact they were funding Health Care issues. OF course the forged memo was copied 2 weeks after the other documents were stolen....then the way the climate skeptics are referred to is the way an alarmist would describe them not the way they descrive themselves.

    I am enjoying the idea that the Alarmist who are spinning for Gleick will be subject to ridicule and lose more credibility as this goes forward.


    BTW Jack another Solar panel company Obama funded is layong off workers.
