2008 International Conference on Climate Change

As we reported earlier today on DeSmogBlog, the Heartland Institute is organizing the “2008 International Conference on Climate Change,” for those few left who cling to the notion that somehow the international science community has gotten it wrong on the causes and realities of global warming.

Call them “skeptics,” “deniers,” or whatever you want, this conference is a last ditch attempt to draw media attention to a message that has long passed its expiry date.

Heck, even George W. Bush no longer denies the scientific realities of climate change.

Over the next week, DeSmogBlog will research the individuals listed as “confirmed speakers” for the conference and provide a succinct briefing note on each.
