“My song ‘Klimawandel’ is one of my most discussed and most debated videos because people are not used to music with critical points of view on global warming,” Kilez More said. “The reactions were enormous, because the massive propaganda in the mainstream media is overwhelming and other opinions are simply not accepted.

“I’m honored to present my song at the ICCC in front of an audience of experts on this topic,” More added. “It’s recognition of my work as a critical musician. I’m pleased the Heartland Institute liked the song and invited me to present it live on stage.”

Global Warming Debate
The debate over the causes and consequences of global warming (or “climate change”) is one of the great controversies of the modern era. While environmental activists and some politicians claim “the debate is over” and call for immediate action to reduce man-made greenhouse gas emissions, others say the science points to only a very small human impact – too small to warrant concern – and the costs of trying to prevent global warming far exceed the benefits.
