Much information about the Fakegate incident has recently become available. There is an article in The Atlantic that presents evidence that the “Confidential Memo: 2012 Heartland Strategy” document currently in the news was not prepared by the Heartland Institute.
“Leaked Documents From Heartland Institute Cause a Stir—But Is One a Fake?” by Megan McArdle, The Atlantic, February 16, 2012.
An interview on video of Joe Bast, President of the Heartland Institute, has been released by The Wall Street Journal with the title “The Purloined Climate Papers.”
Also, there is an interesting commentary, “Is Stealing OK? Alarmist Climate Scientists Don’t Know – “in Tumult!’” in the JoNova website.
