The Heartland Institute will host its second
International Conference on Climate Change, to be
held once again in New York City, March 8-10, at the Marriott Marquis Times Square Hotel, 1535 Broadway, in the Theater District of Midtown Manhattan.
Instituto Liberdade (Brazil) is pleased to announce that is a co-sponsor again.
Heartland’s theme this year is,
Global Warming: Cancelled. Was it Ever Really a Crisis?
The theme reflects (a) the shift in scientific understanding toward the skeptics’ perspective; (b) the defeat of the Lieberman-Warner cap-and-trade bill in the US Senate in July; (c) rising public opinion opposing global warming alarmism, and (d) rising energy and food prices around the world
The purpose of the event is to highlight the disintegrating “consensus” among some scientists on the causes and severity of global warming. The surprising and decisive defeat of the Lieberman-Warner global warming bill in the U.S. Senate in June 2008 signals that the politics of global warming have shifted to the skeptic’s side.
The 2008 conference dramatized the view that global warming is not a crisis, that it is probably natural and not caused by human activity, and that computer models are unreliable guides to future temperature change. The 2009 edition will focus on those areas where the alarmists have lost credibility and where skeptics are gaining.
