The Heritage Foundation is an extreme rightwing think tank that makes it a point to ignore science. They believe global warming is an Al-Gore conceived hoax intended to return us all back to living in cave.

They recently hosted junkmeister and doubt monger Steve Milloy, a paid shill for tobacco and oil companies who is promoting his book, Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Ruin Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them.

Twilight Earth tipped me off to the video. It's good to know what the enemies other side is thinking. Put in the time to watch it -- it's striking for the wide swath of paranoia and narrow thinking it cuts.

Steve Milloy is a paid puppet. He makes his living lying and spinning for corporate clients like ExxonMobil, not leaving much credibility left over at the end of the day. But he's pretty damn good at it, which makes it all the more important that we greenies know how he, and people like him, thinks.
