With their donors running for the hills, the Heartland Institute, a right wing think tank dedicated to denying the existence of climate change, has announced that this year’s climate denial conference will be its last for the foreseeable future. In his closing speech at this year’s event in Chicago, Heartland President Joseph Bast said that financial troubles are preventing the organization from putting on another event.
The Heartland Institute recently came under fire for launching a billboard campaign that compared mass murderers to people who believe global warming is real. Their creepy, nonsensical ads led the Heartland Institute to lose financial support from major donors.
The International Conference on Climate Change is a yearly gathering of climate change deniers who attempt to spread doubts about climate science.
