A scientist's fraudulent peek into Heartland's files began with a modest request

Peter Gleick began his scheme with a carefully thought-out plan. Early on a Friday morning, at just past 8:30, he punched 45 words into the screen of a Gmail account that over the next two weeks would elicit nine documents from the Heartland Institute. The account's address carried the name of a Heartland board member whom Gleick would impersonate in five different emails as a string of messages passed back and forth between him and the organization of climate change skeptics from Jan. 27 to Feb. 10. Four days later, he ignited a firestorm around Heartland's internal climate plans that included signs of preparing a high-school science curriculum.
