And, speaking of Harris and Heartland… apparently the freedom-loving Heartland Institute, in an act of supreme inactivist freedom, has now removed the link to the conference proceedings from their web site! The audio recordings are now on a different page, but many of the hyperlinks are broken — including the link to Harris’s speech.

Fortunately, I’ve already archived Harris’s presentation and a section of his speech, so you can still continue to experience the joy of learning about “coordinated local activism” by listening to his mellifluous voice. ☻

Update 2008-09-19: The audios are now back — at different addresses. Perhaps Heartland simply moved the audios and forgot to update the hyperlinks to them.



  1. They want to hold more of these conferences (with the next one already planned for London IIRC), so given the nature of their game it would not be beneficial to leave a record for easy comparison.

    “Sorting through the 35 pages of verbiage the core premise is that government funding has corrupted climate science by encouraging climate research that promotes the concept of anthropogenic climate change. The gaping flaw is that this bias in government funding is assumed rather than demonstrated, and in fact the US government has been suppressing climate science for years and continues to do so “White House Edits Another Memo to Minimize Global Warming”
