There is no doubt that we have caught the attention of US think tanks and well-known climate change deniers like Steve "the Junkman" Milloy , the Heartland Institute , the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Senator James Inhofe. 
But now we're ready to take our US operations to the next level. Our goals are to increase our research capabilities, hire a Washington insider and enhance our US political and media monitoring.
It's clear that any major cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions cannot happen without strong leadership by the United States. By expanding DeSmogBlog into the US, we can aggressively spread the word on the activities of industry-funded think tanks, associations and global warming deniers that continue to sow doubt about the dire realities of global warming.
We've partnered with the good folks at GiveMeaning to launch our fundraising campaign . If you've enjoyed or learned from our work at DeSmogBlog, and believe that we're making a difference, please consider donating .
