The Peter Gleick story continues on. An anonymous reader left a link to a Washinton
post examiner article indicating that the FBI has been contacted on the matter. Whether they react may be the subject of a “high level directive” at this point.
The only people who compare this to Climategate are those sold on the Mannian “cause”. This was an activist, committing fraud, alleging snail-mail reciept of a document which I fully believe he wrote, who was caught pretending to be a Heartland board member to gain access to any document he could which would put them in a bad light. The liberal press had joined in the chorus full bore, despite the lack of damning evidence like “hide the decline” and now has failed to retract or apologize for any of it.
The Chicago-based free market Heartland Institute has called in the FBI and threatened other legal action against a global warming proponent who has admitted stealing emails from the institute in a bid to embarrass and discredit the group’s questioning of climate change.
Heartland officials tell Washington Secrets that they have been in talks with the FBI over the case against prominent global warming proponent Peter Gleick, co-founder of the respected Pacific Institute. Heartland is getting ready to reveal their probe of the affair, which they hope the FBI will act on.
The media bias on this matter has reached new levels. I’m thinking Gleick is on the Christmas list this year.
