Hundreds of scientists to attend; conference organizers to challenge "myth of global warming crisis".

Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic and current President of the European Union, is scheduled to give the keynote address at the 2009 International Conference on Climate Change.

The conference is devoted to scientists and policymakers skeptical of human-induced global warming, and is intended in part as a counterpoint to the UN IPCC-organized climate conferences. It is being held March 8-10 in New York City.

Some of the many scientists scheduled to speak include:

  • Richard Lindzen, atmospheric physics, MIT
  • Willie Soon, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
  • Nir Shaviv, astrophysicist, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
  • William Gray, atmospheric science, Colorado State University
  • Fred Singer, atmospheric science, University of Virginia
  • Tim Patterson, paleoclimatology, Carleton University
  • David Legates, Delaware State Climatologist
  • Syun Akasofu, University of Alaska, founder International Arctic Research Center,
  • Fred Goldberg, Secretary-General, Swedish Royal Institute of Technology

Appearing as well will be ex-US Senator and Apollo moonwalker Jack Schmitt, who also has a Ph.D in earth science.

The event is expected to draw 1,000 participants, double the size of the 2008 conference. It is being hosted by the Heartland Institute, a nonpartisan think tank. According to Heartland, the event is funded entirely from personal and institutional donors, with no corporate funding accepted.

DailyTech will be providing live coverage from the conference floor.
