Heartland in perspective

I’m a little late to the party on this one, but for those following the controversy (dubbed Fakegate by some) around the Heartland Institute, this image will help keep things in perspective:

In a similar vein, Ben Pile at Spiked reminds us of the enormous sums of money available to environmentalists:

According to Greenpeace, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, one of the most vilified organisations, had received just $2million from Exxon between 1998 and 2005. Yet between 1994 and 2005, total donations to Greenpeace amounted to over $2 billion.

If money can corrupt the public debate on climate change –  maybe we should focus on those with the deepest pockets?
