How Dare You Accuse Me of Being a Heartland Institute Member!

I'm not usually one to laugh at the misfortune of others. But when it comes to the Heartland Institute ...

Doug Southgate, Ohio State University professor of environmental economics, felt the plaintiff’s wrath after testifying for Chevron, based on his experience in Ecuador, dating back to the late 1970s. The plaintiffs attacked him for being a member of the Heartland Institute, which does not believe in global warming. He says he is not a member and only made one presentation to the Institute. It is remarkable, he says, how easy it is to spread anything on the internet.
How dare you smear me by repeating those vicious internet rumors that I'm a member of the Heartland Institute!
