Tell Fox News: Disinformation About Climate Change is Not Science!

Top scientists say they are now as certain that human activities cause global warming as they are about the fact that smoking is dangerous for your health.

But Fox News continues to serve as a platform for the contrarian claims of the Heartland Institute, a think tank with a history of receiving funding from fossil fuel and tobacco interests.

The Heartland Institute is working to spread disinformation and delay action on climate change—the very same tactics used by Big Tobacco for years to mislead the public about the dangers of smoking. How do we know? We have their playbook.

Now, Fox News is exposing millions of viewers to the Heartland Institute's latest ruse: attempting to substitute misinformation for the critical work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, whose latest findings affirm that scientists are more certain than ever about global warming.

Join us in sending Rupert Murdoch, CEO of Fox News parent company News Corp, a message: misinformation from the Heartland Institute is not science!
