Markey wants Heartland climate documents

Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) pressed the Heartland Institute Friday for original copies of internal strategy and budget documents that were obtained and released by a well-known climate researcher earlier this month.

The documents include plans for developing a K-12 curriculum that raises questions about climate science, as well as plans for funding high-profile climate skeptics.

The Heartland Institute, a free-market group that rejects mainstream climate science, has called one of the documents a fake, though the group has confirmed the K-12 curriculum plan.
