The Heartland Institute has been a purveyor of contrary viewpoints for a long time. They supported the tobacco industry and the "rights of smokers" over scientific proof that second-hand smoke is dangerous, and now they fight with the oil and gas lobbyists against the science that is predicting global, human-made climate change.
Yesterday they convened in Washington D.C. to spread their message to congressmen. I haven't heard any reports about the results, but you can read about their planned conference here.
