December 7 events with CFACT and CEI include ‘Day of Examining the Data,’ World Premiere of ‘Climate Hustle’ Documentary

The Heartland Institute – known globally as the leading think tank debunking global warming alarmism and junk science – is partnering with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), and other allied organizations to bring some of the world’s most esteemed climate scientists and policy experts to present the inconvenient, data-based truth to the United Nations’ COP 21 summit in Paris.

Heartland and its allies will be on the ground in Paris for COP 21 – what the global press is calling the last chance to convince the world’s governments to “solve” the global warming crisis. The scientists and policy experts Heartland, CFACT, CEI, and their allies are bringing to Paris for COP 21 will be there to prove with globally accepted scientific data there is no human-caused global warming crisis.

"For instance, global temperatures measured by satellite show no significant rise for more than 18 years," said Jim Lakely, director of communications at The Heartland Institute. "This is despite the fact that the world’s carbon dioxide emissions since 1990 constitute more than one-third of all human CO2 emissions since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution in the 1850s. [See this chart.]

"If human emissions of CO2 drive temperature, we’d have seen proof of that in the past two decades," Lakely added. "The proof isn’t there. This is just one data point proving inconvenient to the global bureaucrats gathering in Paris in December. There are many more – and you can see them explained in presentations by truly independent scientists at ten International Conferences on Climate Change or by reviewing the four volumes in the Climate Change Reconsidered series, produced by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) and published by The Heartland Institute."
