Oakland Scientist at Center of Latest Climate Change Scandal

Last Tuesday, a series of leaked documents outlining the rather brazen strategies of Chicago-based libertarian think-tank The Heartland Institute to discount evidence of global warming first appeared on the Internet. By yesterday the leak was an international story. Speculation on the documents’ source and veracity ran rampant, until yesterday evening when research scientist Peter Gleick, co-founder and president of the Oakland-based Pacific Institute, admitted in an article in the Huffington Post to having obtained the documents through the use of a false identity.
