Outrage in the Climate Science Community Continues Over the "500 Scientist" List

I view that the inclusion of my name in such a list without my permission or consensus has damaged my professional reputation as an atmospheric scientist.”

Dr. Ming Cai, Associate Professor, Department of Meteorology, Florida State University.

Earlier today we broke the story about dozens of scientists outraged at the use of their good names in an article by Heartland Institute's “Senior Fellow” Dennis Avery (inset) posted on their website entitled 500 Scientists with Documented Doubts of Man-Made Global Warming Scares.

The letters are pouring in from angry scientists, with over 45 scientists now demanding that there names be stricken from the list, some are going much further and threatening legal action.

Are You on the Heartland 500 List of "Doubters"

Earlier today we broke the story about dozens of scientists outraged that their name is included on a list widely distributed by the Heartland Institute with an article entitled 500 Scientists with Documented Doubts of Man-Made Global Warming Scares.

The article is written by Dennis Avery, a “Senior Fellow” at the Heartland Institute. The article which was first published by another think tank called the Hudson Institute, where Avery is also listed as a “Senior Fellow,” has bounced around the internet as proof that there is great doubts about the realities of human-caused global warming.

We emailed 122 of the scientists and in less than 24 hours more than 35 scientists have responded in outrage.

The list of the Heartland 500 is attached. If you are on the list please let us know by email at: desmogblog@gmail.com.

Heartland Debate Challenge Update, May 3, 2007

DeSmog Debate Challenge

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the Heartland Institute being such passionate defenders of smokers' rights I thought for sure they would be interested in a debate on the subject.

After what we thought was some constructive dialogue towards making this event happen, the Heartland seems to now be playing a bit of duck and cover.

In the meantime, please enjoy some past posts we have done on the Heartland Institute or the entry for Heartland over at Sourcewatch.

DeSmogBlog Truly Sorry About Heartland Institute "Inaccuracy"

Heartland Institute President Joseph Bast, tireless defender of big tobacco and trenchant critic of climate science advocates, has demanded that the DeSmogBlog “retract an inaccurate statement” that we had included in a post challenging Heartland to a debate over the harmful effects of tobacco.

We would like to make that retraction here and now:

“SOUND SCIENCE” DEBATE DISMISSED AS SO MUCH SMOKE

VANCOUVER – Yesterday, the Chicago-based Heartland Institute launched an ad campaign calling former vice president Gore to a public debate on global warming. In response, the DeSmogBlog challenges the Heartland Institute to a debate on the harmful effects of second-hand tobacco smoke.

A correction to this post has been made, see here.
