The Heartland Institute has launched their most offensive campaign yet. The climate-denier thinktank has placed a series of billboards around Chicago comparing anyone who believes in global warming to mass murderers and terrorists in what the UK Guardian calls “possibly one of the most ill-judged poster campaigns in the history of ill-judged poster campaigns.”
The group’s own press release veers into absurdism:
Billboards in Chicago paid for by The Heartland Institute point out that some of the world’s most notorious criminals say they “still believe in global warming” – and ask viewers if they do, too…
The billboard series features Ted Kaczynski, the infamous Unabomber; Charles Manson, a mass murderer; and Fidel Castro, a tyrant. Other global warming alarmists who may appear on future billboards include Osama bin Laden and James J. Lee (who took hostages inside the headquarters of the Discovery Channel in 2010).
