Nature spreads misinformation about Heartland, Koch

Now Nature is recklessly spreading misinformation about Heartland and the Kochs.

The Nature News blog asserts:

… The [Heartland 2012 Budget Plan] also notes that a “key Anonymous Donor” provided $1.7 million in 2010 and $979,000 in 2011 for “climate work”, while the Charles G. Koch Foundation – also a controversial body – gave $200,000 in 2011.

But as this page shows, the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation only gave $25,000 to Heartland in 2011 (about 0.5% of Heartland’s budget) for a health care project. Heartland only hoped to get $200,000 from the Foundation in 2012 — again for its health care project.

  1. Nature is the New York Times of science reporting. The scientists that I know have given up on it. The prestige is gone.
