I have my doubts. There will almost certainly be more shoes to drop. Gleick is clearly trying to dodge the accusation that he authored the fake memo by copping only to the theft-by-deception of the Heartland documents and disavowing authorship of the fake, however there seem to be too many smoking guns in the fake for Gleick to escape responsibility for that.

This is an important story which totally destroys the credibility of a leading climate-change eco-fascist and therefore deserves a place in Breaking News.
Definitely popcorn time.
