Insurers Pull Support For Heartland Institute After Campaign Likens Climate Change Supporters To Terrorists, Murderers

May 9th, 2012 | By | Category: Featured Story

Insurers and a Connecticut alcohol conglomerate halted their financial support of The Heartland Institute after it paid for billboard advertisements likening supporters of climate change science to murderers, terrorists and a dictator.

The Chicago-based Heartland Institute announced last Thursday that it paid for billboards in Chicago featuring Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, Charles Manson and Fidel Castro with each saying they “still believe in global warming.” The self-proclaimed free-market think tank planned to feature Osama bin Laden in a billboard at some point in the future.
