Given the Heartland Institute's penchant for misrepresenting science, you would think reporters would be curious about who finances its work. You would be wrong.

With almost no laws in place to protect the public from the known -- and very scary -- dangers associated with the controversial oil and gas extraction technology, communities across Illinois are in harm's way.
I was born and bred in Oklahoma. I make my living as an Oklahoma criminal defense attorney. Tornadoes have been a part of my entire life. Hell, my high school mascot was a "red tornado."

Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are making history by flying across America in a 100 percent solar-powered plane that collects enough energy during the day to fly through the night on battery power alone.
Bureau Of Land Management,
If the Obama Administration wants to provide any real protection for our air, water and climate, Secretary Jewell should withdraw these regulations a second time and go back to the drawing board.

Located nearby the 10,000 square foot distillery on the banks of the Lamoille River, visitors may notice several beehives. Unsurprisingly, Hardie, who has been keeping bees for nearly five decades, enjoys being around bees.
