Back in the early '90's, I had the pleasure of my first interview with Joseph Bast, President/CEO of The Heartland Institute. Today, Heartland is among the leading think tanks in America on the forefront of Liberty related issues: free speech, environment, health care and others.
Recently, the Vatican teamed with the United Nations for Pope's Global Warming Summit, a remarkably ill-informed, one-sided series of screeds poorly disguised and presented by individuals uniquely unqualified to address the subject of "climate change" - including Pope Francis who joined in dispensing the mis-information. One Jeffrey Sachs, a Columbia University professor and “special adviser” to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, wrote one of the more egregious piecess attacking "global warming deniers" as well as the Heartland Institute.
Here is Joe Bast's excellent, informative and appropriate response.
