According to major climate change denier, the Heartland Institute, people who believe in climate change are like the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, and other terrorists. From their press release announcing the billboard:

The billboard series features Ted Kaczynski, the infamous Unabomber; Charles Manson, a mass murderer; and Fidel Castro, a tyrant. Other global warming alarmists who may appear on future billboards include Osama bin Laden and James J. Lee (who took hostages inside the headquarters of the Discovery Channel in 2010).These rogues and villains were chosen because they made public statements about how man-made global warming is a crisis and how mankind must take immediate and drastic actions to stop it.

Why did Heartland choose to feature these people on its billboards? Because what these murderers and madmen have said differs very little from what spokespersons for the United Nations, journalists for the “mainstream” media, and liberal politicians say about global warming… The point is that believing in global warming is not “mainstream,” smart, or sophisticated. In fact, it is just the opposite of those things.

Meanwhile, “smart” people are thinking about the havoc that climate change is already causing us. Despite cutbacks in federal research and monitoring, anyone can notice the destruction of Ontario’s 2012 apple and other fruit crops; wildfires; the early onslaught of smog days; and dangerously low water in many rivers. And the science is building of many other adverse effects. For example,

A WARMER world might be a poisoned one. A compilation of studies suggests that as temperatures rise, herbivorous mammals will suffer greater effects.

One piece of good news: the ads persuaded pharmaceutical giant Eli Llily, BB&T bank and PepsiCo not to fund Heartland in 2012. But why were they funding Heartland before?
