The volumes, Climate Change Reconsidered and Climate Change Reconsidered: 2011 Interim Report, are chock full of 1,200 pages of peer-reviewed data concerning the veracity of anthropogenic climate change. Together, they represent the most comprehensive rebuttal of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change findings, which have been the basis of the climate change legislation movement across the planet.

So, CAS has NOT changed its mind re the facts of AGW, and indeed whatever cooperation took place was between one branch of CAS and HI, not the former organization as a whole (its governing body, as it were).
Once again, the folks at Heartland have wildly exaggerated events, if not lied about them.
Note: The "mistaken" news release announcing the translation has been pulled from the UCAS website. Perhaps the CAS is distancing itself from the "Lanzhou branch"?
