John Nothdurft is the Heartland Institutes Government Relations Director, and previously served as a legislative specialist on budget, tax, and tobacco policy. Prior to joining Heartland John was the National Press Coordinator for Americans for Fair Taxation. John is also a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC) Tax and Fiscal Policy Task Force. ALEC has long attacked climate and science policy stating in 2011 that, “Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring, non-toxic and beneficial gas, and it poses no direct threat to public health”. ALEC was also named in the American Petroleum Institute’s Global Climate Science Communication Plan, which outlines strategies to undermine climate change science in government and public opinion.

Nothdurft has stated that: 

“global warming alarmists argue human activities, primarily the emission of greenhouse gases from energy use, are driving a rapid rise in global average temperature that is causing a climate crisis. This theory and the climate models that underpin it are strongly contradicted by real-world evidence.”
