We love the title of this event so much we’ll repeat it here: “Global Warming - was it ever really a crisis?”
The 2009 International Conference on Climate Change coming in March in New York (book your greenhouse-gas emitting flights now) will be sponsored as it was last year by the Heartland Institute. It will feature your usual suspected cranks and crackpots, according to global warming alarmists. But a closer look at the credentials of the keynote speakers alone shows they put Al “I’ll buy offsets for my gluttonous electricity usage” Gore look like the rank amateur he is by comparison.
Go to the Heartland site for the names. We’ll list a only few of the credentials: one of the world’s most respected atmospheric physicists, chief policy advisor to the Science and Public Policy Institute, physicist at the Solar and Stellar Physics Division of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. We could go on but remember all we really have to trump are Al Gore’s Oscar and the IPCC honchos’ political connections.
Perhaps the reality that some folks with an agenda have been snowing the public with hyped claims of heated catastrophe is beginning to register among the masses. The Pew Research Center reported this week that when the public was asked to rank what’s important, global warming ranked dead last. Oops.
Gee, do you think that will persuade Sacramento and Washington to call off their costly global warming “solution” regulations and taxing schemes? Ha.
