Koch brothers fund Heartland Institute.  They've got the US Supreme Court on their side it seems in spite of it being a violation of the US Constitution in my opinion.

Doug I am well aware  who writers of the "Non Governmental" version of IPCC are. And, yes I understand the Heartland Inst. is a conservative group. However, I do not know who funds them and have never seen any evidence they are affiliated with the Oil Industry. As far as I know it is people who still believe in the US Constitution. The IPCC on the other hand is funded by the UN which is historically at the other end of the political spectrum. I understand that many of their governmental supporters stand to make a bundle from Cap and Trade taxes. Gene
