  5. […] The fake science pushed by Heartland Institute has been a top story for the past two weeks and it should be. Heartland Institute has been engaged in science misinformation for years and has even stooped to trying to teach fake science to our school kids. Tom Harris, a Heartland Expert, is using the same playbook up in Canada. (Unfortunately, Heartland is just one snake on the head of Medusa.) […]
