What's not new? Climate deniers that money can buy!

For the past nine years, climate deniers from all over the world have gathered for the International Conference on Climate Change, brought to you by the Heartland Institute (the same folks who deny that tobacco causes lung cancer).

This year, they’ll do the denying in oven-hot Las Vegas, a city undergoing killer high temps and record-breaking extreme drought. Approximately 600 attendees paid $126 a pop to discuss the hoax of global warming, hear about how awesome fracking is, and gamble in casinos (presumably on our future), all while sweating profusely in 90-plus-degree heat.

But what to do for entertainment? Since craps tables and the Michael Jackson/Cirque du Soleil show just aren’t enough to wash down hours of hearing about the evils of carbon pricing, the Heartland Institute booked a most fitting performer: a climate-denying rapper.
