What: Sixth International Conference on Climate Change
Where: Marriott Wardman Park, 2660 Woodley Road NW, Washington, DC
When: June 30 and July 1, 2011
The Heartland Institute will host its sixth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-6) on June 30 and July 1 in Washington, DC at the Marriott Wardman Park. Heartland will be joined in Washington by dozens of think tank cosponsors and hundreds of scientists who dispute the claim that “the science is settled” on the causes, consequences, and policy implications of climate change.
Past conferences have taken place in New York City, Chicago, Washington DC, and Sydney, Australia and have attracted more than 2,000 participants from 20 countries. The proceedings have been covered by ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, the BBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Le Monde, and most other leading media outlets.
ICCC-6 will feature presentations by more than 21 scientists and economists commenting on the latest research on the causes, consequences, and policy implications of climate change. Speakers already confirmed include:
Past ICCCs have featured presentations by members of Congress, the president of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus, and scientists who view themselves as “skeptics” as well as “alarmists.” Atmospheric scientist Scott Denning, who believes in man-made global warming, spoke at ICCC-4 in 2010 and profusely thanked the organizers and attendees at the end of the conference. Hear his remarks here.
The theme of the conference is “End of the Delusion,” reflecting the fact that a majority of scientists and the general public now realize past claims of scientific consensus and predictions of climate catastrophes were simply wrong. The change in opinion arose from scientific scandals such as “Climategate,” admissions of errors and abuses of peer review in the research of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and new scientific discoveries related to the role of clouds and carbon dioxide in climate.
The ICCC-6 is open to the public. More information is available at http://www.heartland.org/events/iccc2011.
