7th International Conference on Climate Change
The Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance is proud to announce that we are an official co-sponsor of the 7th International Conference on Climate Change, to be held in Chicago from May 21-23.
The International Conferences on Climate Change, organised by the Heartland Institute, attract hundreds of scientists, academics, policy experts, elected officials, journalists and concerned citizens from around the world every year and are the place to get the FACTS on climate change – and not the alarmist spin you read in the media.
This year’s theme is “Real Science, Real Choices.” With over 60 scientists and policy experts speaking at plenary sessions (including Dr. Patrick Michaels, a member of our Board of Advisers, and Chief Scientific Adviser to www.StopGillard’sCarbonTax.com), and three tracks of concurrent panel sessions exploring what real climate science is telling us about the causes and consequences of climate change, and the real consequences of choices being made based on the current perceptions of the state of climate science, this shall surely be a great event!
Other topics discussed at the conference shall be:
- A new report by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) updating its 2009 report, Climate Change Reconsidered, and a new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on climate change and extreme weather events
- The major retreats in the U.S. and other developing nations from government subsidies and investments in solar and wind power.
- The widely publicized bankruptcies of companies including Solar Trust of America and Solyndra, and slow economic growth and fiscal crises afflicting many European countries forcing policymakers around the world to reconsider the costs and consequences of basing energy choices on fear of man-made global warming.
- Climategate II and “FakeGate”
