Governments all over the world have their hands full trying to deal with swine flu, and the academic policy ‘think-tank’ known as the Heartland Institute has decided to help out by… organizing yet another ‘conference’ promoting climate change inaction!
The Third International Conference on Climate Change will be held in Washington, DC on June 2, 2009 at the Washington Court Hotel, 525 New Jersey Avenue NW. It will call attention to widespread dissent to the asserted “consensus” on various aspects of climate change and global warming.
I guess they can’t call this upcoming one-day (!) ‘conference’ the “2009 International Conference on Climate Change”, because they’d already used up that name themselves last month. (And “2009b International Conference on Climate Change” will just sound silly…)
Cosponsoring organizations are given a limited number of free tickets to the conference; if you are a member of any of the cosponsoring organizations, consider asking them about the availability of free tickets.
And on the “Welcome” page (emphasis mine):
Allied organizations have been invited to be cosponsors, to help supply speakers and promote the event to their members and supporters.
That was blunt.
