Peter Gleick cleared of forging documents in Heartland expose

A review has cleared the scientist Peter Gleick of forging any documents in his exposé of the rightwing Heartland Institute’s strategy and finances, the Guardian has learned.

Gleick’s sting on Heartland brought unwelcome scrutiny to the organisation’s efforts to block action on climate change, and prompted a walkout of corporate donors that has created uncertainty about its financial future.

Gleick, founder of the Pacific Institute and a well-regarded water expert, admitted and apologised for using deception to obtain internal Heartland documents last February.

He has been on leave from the Institute pending an external investigation into the unauthorised release of the documents. That investigation is now complete, and the conclusions will be made public, the Guardian has learned.

    Sounds like a very internal external investigation, just like the the ones conducted at Penn State that cleared both Michael Mann and Jerry Sandusky from their hideous crimes.

    Fun at the Heartland conference

    Suzanne appears to be drinking non-locally-grown coffee.

    Scientist who admitted to deception to obtain internal Heartland documents was found in investigation not to have faked material

  4. I assume the investigation will determine that the documents he stole are “authentic” and the origin of the document he faked will remain “unclear”. No mention will be made of the fact that even if his story was completely true, one cannot mix documents from different sources (especially if one of those sources is unknown) and not make this clear when presenting the information to the media. That alone is a serious deception.

    The Grauniad only ‘learned’ it because Goldenberg told them. Where did she get it from?

    The whole article is entirely news free, it doesn’t ‘report’ anything.

    Mark Twain must be spinning in his grave.
