2008 International Conference on Climate Change

without comments

Hundreds of respected scientists from fields as diverse as economics to the physical sciences attended the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change, sponsored by The Heartland Institute. Held at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square March 2nd though March 4th, 2008, climate change skeptics presented their research through different tracks available to talk attendees, including: paleoclimatology, climatology, climate change impacts, climate change economics, and climate change politics. These global warming skeptics offered up their scientific responses to the climate change evidence and predictions from the likes of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth. Notable speakers included Lord Christopher Monckton, former adviser to PM Margaret Thatcher, and ABC’s 20/20 correspondent John Stossel.

As a website created to promote dialogue and thought about both the science behind global warming and the implication of policies, reports on several of the talks and panels for our readers.
