What does a climate denier group do when the science isn’t on their side? Perhaps they use fossil fuel money to foment doubt about the reality of climate change in American classrooms?

Earlier this week, the folks over at DeSmogBlog posted some documents from the Heartland Institute.

The Heartland documents appear to reveal the organization’s central role in the effort to discredit established climate science:

The Heartland Institute has been working to deny the reality of climate change for years and now we finally have their own words as evidence. They are going to keep going if we don’t do something. It is important to stop this dangerous campaign of doubt wherever possible. If you need a refresher course in how and why these interests manufacture doubt, take another look at our Doubt video from last year.

We’ll be watching this story as it develops and will keep you updated.
