National Review's Breathless (but unsurprising) International Climate Conference Booster

The Hudson Institute's Thomas Sowell has a piece on the National Review Online t oday touting the Heartland Institute's Denial-a-palooza being held next week in New York City.

Sowell takes no time heading down the misinformation highway with his opening sentence:

It has almost become something of a joke when some 'global warming' conference has to be cancelled because of a snowstorm or bitterly cold weather.”

Heartland Institute Lures Legislators with Free Hotels for Climate Skeptics Conference

If there is a sweeter deal for Republican Senator “global warming is hoax” Inhofe I don't know what it would be.

DeSmogBlog has received the details of an invitation that has apparently gone out to elected officials promising them “lodging and pay for up to two (2) nights of accommodation,” in New York if they would like to attend the Heartland Institute's “International Climate Change Conference.”

The invitation goes on to add that elected officials who are a member of the Heartland's “Legislative Forum,” will also receive an extra bonus of $300 to cover travel expenses.
