These Billboards Are So Wrong. And We Are So Right.

A right-wing thinktank, The Heartland Institute, just released a billboard campaign comparing people who are concerned about global warming to Fidel Castro, Ted Kazynski, Osama Bin Laden, and Charles Manson.

First, this has to be the biggest right wing FAIL since Newt Gingrich.

Secondly, prominent corporations actually fund this whack-job institution: Microsoft, State Farm, and Pfizer to name a few. The Engagement Lab is circulating a petition for all the corporations that fund the Heartland Institute calling them to "immediately pull their funding from the Heartland Institute in light of Heartland's ongoing and extreme support of climate change denial." Sign and share the petition.

Only one question remains in my mind: Why isn't it already obvious to Microsoft that climate change denial isn't cool?
