Gleick repeatedly claimed in his confession that his misconduct was motivated by a desire for creating a rational public debate on global warming and that he was trying to fight back against the people he claims are seeking to prevent such a debate. Yet in January 2012 The Heartland Institute cordially invited Gleick to publicly debate me at the organization’s 2012 anniversary benefit dinner. All Gleick would had to have done is defeat me in that debate and he could have accomplished his twin goals of promoting public debate and embarrassing The Heartland Institute. Yet Gleick declined to participate in such a fair and open debate, and that day began his acts of fraud and theft against Heartland.
Beyond our invitation to Gleick, The Heartland Institute has cordially invited dozens of scientists who believe humans are creating a global warming crisis to give presentations and to debate skeptics at our annual global warming conferences. Only one such scientist has ever accepted our offer.
Truth doesn’t require forgeries and fake documents to win an argument. Climategate and Fakegate show just how desperate the collapsing global warming alarmism movement has become.
