A small monitoring operation that investigates climate change deniers such as the Heartland Institute and the fossil fuel industry.

Issues:

  • Efforts to stall the climate policy process by the fossil fuel industry and its allies
  • Climate science denial campaigns spawned by industrial interests and their front groups
  • The latest climate science impacts assessments and backlash against them
  • Attribution science advances connecting climate impacts to global warming pollution

Investigations:

  • Cooler Heads Coalition – A website, paid for and run by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, is an echo chamber for climate denying organizations to promote fringe ideas on climate science.
  • PR Industry Climate Survey that asks PR firms on their positions on climate change.
  • Patrick Michaels – Decades of Denial – has built a career curating doubt about climate change science and its impact on our environment.
  • The Anti-Environmental Archives – An online archive of documents on anti-environmental campaigns, individuals involved in these campaigns and the corporations that back them.
