After an extensive examination of the Global Warming Denial Forum a couple weeks ago, I received an interesting set of links that seem to indicate that the Heartland Institute is having trouble with its list of scientists who refute anthroprogenic global warming.

Over at Desmogblog, they have been contacting the various scientists on the Heartland Institute list of those who have "documented doubts" about global warming. In doing so, they have uncovered quite a few of those scientists that don't actually share the views of the Heartland Institute:

UPDATE: we have received notes now from 45 outraged scientists whose names appear on the list of 500. We've published more quotes here.

Dozens of scientists are demanding that their names be removed from a widely distributed Heartland Institute article entitled 500 Scientists with Documented Doubts of Man-Made Global Warming Scares.

The article, by Hudson Institute director and Heartland "Senior Fellow" Dennis T. Avery (inset), purports to list scientists whose work contradicts the overwhelming scientific agreement that human-induced climate change is endangering the world as we know it.

DeSmogBlog manager Kevin Grandia emailed 122 of the scientists yesterday afternoon, calling their attention to the list. So far - in less than 24 hours - three dozen of those scientists had responded in outrage, denying that their research supports Avery's conclusions and demanding that their names be removed.

They picked up the story over at Dailykos.
