Mission:

The Heartland Institute is a national nonprofit organization founded in 1984 and devoted to research and education. Its mission is to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems. Such solutions include parental choice in education, market-based approaches to environmental protection, privatization of public services, and deregulation in areas where property rights and markets do a better job than government bureaucracies.

Programs:

The Heartland Institute publishes four national monthly newspapers covering free-market ideas in school reform, environmental protection, health care finance, and tax and budget matters. Heartland also publishes three policy newsletters, addressing the digital economy; lawsuit abuse; and public policy from a free-market multicultural perspective. It also publishes a members' newsletter. Heartland has a substantial presence on the Internet (http://www.heartland.org), including PolicyBot -- the Internet's largest collection of free-market public policy research. Eight Heartland Senior Fellows travel the country giving speeches to audiences of all sizes. Heartland also publishes occasional books and policy studies and hosts seminars and other events.

You emails keep me apprised of current event in the smaller government movements and are basically conservative which is my preference with all government programs, policies and Constitutional issues. Keep up the good work. From a Tea Party organizer and member who believes government is totally out of control in all areas.

I am a retired Georgia Tech engineering professor with an engineering Ph. D. who has worked in energy areas for more than 50 years. The Heartland Institute is the best source in the country for information on climate science and the folly of abandoning our abundant, inexpensive fossil fuels of coal, oil, and natural gas. The present technical state of renewable energy sources of solar, wind, ethanol from corn, and other biofuels demands too much land areas and are too expensive to provide the increases in lifespan, good health, ease of transportation, and comfortable living provided by fossil fuel energy. The public needs to study these issues and provide the vigilance needed to prevent climate alarmists from seizing control of the nation.

The Heartland Institute is involved in a variety of projects. As a retired Georgia Tech nuclear engineering professor, I have great interest in energy policy. Unfortunately for the United States, its energy policies have been hijacked by the global warming scare claiming carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels is causing catastrophic global warming. The Heartland Institute does the best job of any organization in the world to educate the public about the science of climate change and the role of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels having a negligible effect on global warming (climate change).

I am so impressed with The Heartland Institute's education programs I have made annual donations at the Patron Level and recommend others to do the same.

I admire the Heartland Institute for its pursuit of the truth. They bring an important voice to the marketplace of ideas. I can count on their opinions to be well researched and thoughtful. I may not share all of their views, but I do always respect them. For that reason, I have also put my money where my mouth is and made a small contribution. My thanks go to the Heartland Institute for what they do.

This organization scores high on ideology, low on facts and credibility.

"Hahahahahaiii" 's comment was useful to me in that he hung himself. I have a biology degree with geology. I tend to think in units of 1,000 yrs. or more. Climate has changed many times, sometimes drastically in the history of the planet. Is human activity that much of an effect? I doubt it, strongly.

This is the biggest load of BS I've ever seen. It's a bunch of rich Americans trying to get richer by doubting climate change to save the petroleum industry. It disgusts me how inaccurate their articles are and how they try to confuse the public about global warming.

I've been an email subscriber for several years. I find their reporting; their analysis to be spot-on and the most timely, informative alternative to the socio-fascist print and electronic propaganda!! Go HEARTLAND!!

Heartland Institute provides the most reliable information on school choice and climate change of all the organizations I follow. Heartland analysts defend their positions against anyone, any where and any time and rarely are found wanting. By the way, Koch Industries employ more than 50,000 Americans in high paying industrial jobs. For our welfare state correspondents, that alone is reason enough to vilify.

Heartland Institute is a breath of fresh air in the midst of a political culture of silencing critics. It offers opinions not freely expressed in the media. Facts and actual information is so helpful when dealing with the issues of supposed global warming.

I became acquainted with Heartland when I served in the NH Legislature as someone left their newspaper for us in the anti room. Most interesting was the researched articles that gave more information on how laws were being introduced by special interest groups and what facts they may have uncovered. While I always try to read both or many sides of an issue I also like groups who do not go to the pocket book of the taxpayer. So I have continued to read and digest their well researched articles and am hopeful they will continue providing other information.

As a former legislator and a member of Women in Government I found the research from the Heartland well done and balanced the more biased information I received from Women in Government. I like knowing there is a place I can turn and trust the research of information I get.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2007
