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.

Polarization of Climate arguments

The primary reason for the polarization is that the anthropocentric types like Gore, Suzuki, May, Hansen and Mann to name the obvious cadre will not debate. This situation probably springs from their deep inner knowledge that they have an agenda beyond scientifidc revelation. What could that be? Ask them. They are out to save the world that has evolved a successful climate for complex life over 4.5 B years. What ego!

The primary reason for polarization is that the global warming pushers want us all to return to an agrarian society with them as the aristocracy. They want to remove all things that make us equal: opportunity, technology, weapons, and mobility. If we can't get to their level of wealth, we stay inferior to them. If we can't fight them, then we stay oppressed by them. If we can't move and communicate with each other, then we stay oppressed.

Ever wonder why so many old money families press the liberal line?
