Global Warming Conference Chicago May 16, 2010

CHICAGO – More than 70 of the world’s leading climate scientists, economists, and policymakers will convene in Chicago, May 16-18, to address the fourth International Conference on Climate Change.
Theme in Chicago: 'Reconsidering the science and economics'


http://www.heartland.org/events/2010Chicago/index.html

Among the featured presenters are:

* Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the Space Research Laboratory at the Pulkovo Observatory and head of the Russian component of the International Space Station.

* Dr. Scott Denning, professor on the Atmospheric Science Faculty at Colorado State University and a proponent of the view that greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced to avoid harm to the planet.

* Dr. Richard Lindzen, professor of meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, whose work on the role clouds play in climate sensitivity and global temperatures has put him in the vanguard of global warming skeptics.

* Dr. Ian Plimer, chairman of the Mining Geology Department at the University of Adelaide and author of more than 130 scientific papers and seven books dealing with climate change.

* Dr. Willie Soon, an astrophysicist and a geoscientist at the Solar, Stellar and Planetary Sciences division of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. He is the receiving editor in the area of solar and stellar physics for the journal New Astronomy. His views strictly are his own.

* Dr. Roy Spencer, principal research scientist at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, where he directs a variety of climate research projects, and author of the upcoming The Great Global Warming Blunder: How Mother Nature Fooled the World’s Top Climate Scientists.

The conference is open to the public, and some 1,000 scientists, economists, business people, state and federal legislators and regulators, thought leaders, and media representatives are expected to attend at the Marriott Hotel on Michigan Avenue.

The conference is the first major scientific meeting on climate since emails emerged last November from the Climatic Research Unit of East Anglia University in Britain. The messages revealed a deliberate campaign to suppress scientific data and debate over the causes and severity of climate change, sullying the credibility of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Joseph Bast, president of The Heartland Institute, organizer of the conference, said, “More scientists are speaking out against what they see as the misuse of science to exaggerate the human impact of climate change. The conference speakers agree it is time for an open consideration of the science and economics of global warming.”

Conference Director James M. Taylor added, “Our speakers don’t all agree on the causes, extent, or consequences of climate change—or what if anything should be done about it. We invited these top scientists and economists to share their latest research and engage in respectful debate.”

Complimentary registration is available to qualified print, broadcast, and online journalists. For more information, contact Dan Miller or Tammy Nash at the Heartland Institute, dmiller@heartland.org or tnash@heartland.org.

The Chicago-based Heartland Institute is a 26-year-old national nonprofit organization funded by 1,800 donors. No corporate donor provides more than 5 percent of Heartland’s $7 million annual budget.

Germans citizens are rapidly losing faith in global warming following the Climate-gate scandals, according to a new report in Der Spiegel.
The report indicates that just 42 percent of Germans are worried about global warming, down substantially from the 62 percent that expressed concern with the state of the environment in 2006.
