All evidence is that the Heartland climate document is a fake.
Climate change Global warming warrior Peter Gleick has made his first confession to his involvement in the fraud. Some people think he wrote the whole forgery. Glenn Reynolds has a roundup.
UPDATE: Ace has a good roundup.
There are some who will see this as a departure from normal means by Gleick. This is just a personal failure, and on the plus side he will have earned martyr points from many of his warmist colleagues, or so they will like to tell us. But this isn’t so. It’s of a pattern of unethical behaviour that we saw in Climategate. It’s the ‘any means necessary’ mindset that sees climate scientists conspiring to remove troublesome journal editors, to malign opponents, to ‘redefine peer review’. Hell, we even saw a small example of it when Gleick ‘reviewed’ Donna Laframboise’s book on the IPCC at Amazon without having taking the trouble to read the book.
