International Journal of Inactivism (now supplanted by Decoding SwiftHack)


Sponsorship is in the air

cite as: F. Bi. 2008. Sponsorship is in the air. Intl. J. Inact., 1:160

While the Heartland Institute is looking for people to “sponsor” (ahem) certain stuff at its upcoming inactivist “2009 International Conference on Climate Change”, Anthony Watts is apparently looking for people who can sponsor him (as in money) to attend the conference. A plea for help from Chuck Norris Dee Norris:

Just an afterthought: As many of you know, Anthony does not receive funding for his work at or here at WUWT [Watts Up With That?].  The funds to attend this conference will most likely come out of his pocket.  Look to your right and you will see at little yellow Donate button under the SHAMELESS PLUG heading.  WUWT gets over 10,000 views a day and if just 0.5% of this traffic contributes ten dollars apiece, we can entirely fund Anthony’s conference expenses.   How about it?   Do we walk the walk or just talk?

Norris says she also plans on attending. I wonder where she’s getting her conference funds from.

  1. They call it “2009 International Conference on Climate Change”

    I call it “DenialFest ’09”

    Honestly I think my title is less likely to mislead people who hear it…

    Anyway notice where speakers herald from at that conference:
    The Hudson Institute
    The Heartland Institute
    The Competitive Enterprise Institute
    The Science and Public Policy Institute
    The Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine
    The American Enterprise Institute

    Two things that immediately spring to mind (there are more but this will do):
    1) Why would a political think-tank send speakers to a science conference?
    2) You’d have thought they would stop putting “Institute” in their titles. It’s a dead giveaway. It’s so uncanny it’s almost as if it’s a tax status requirement or something.
