15th International Conference on Climate Change
Is the true crisis climate change … or climate policy?
Heartland Institute’s 15th International Conference on Climate Change kicked off this evening with a “Meet the Speakers” reception. While it was advertised as a “dessert reception”, attendees were treated to a wide variety of dinner offerings: hamburgers, beef and veggies, shrimp, salads, southern-stye mac-n-cheese and many other dishes, all to be eaten either “reception style” standing at small high tables or at regular 8-person round dinner tables.
And who was there ? Everyone but you! Not really. But in attendance were all the speakers that will be making presentations over the next 48 hours including: Will Happer, Patrick Moore, Anthony Watts, Richard Lindzen, Dr. Willie Soon, Ian Plimer, Cork Hayden, Ronald Stein, Alex Epstein, Marc Morano, Greg Wrightstone, James Taylor, David Legates, Christopher Monckton, and many many more whose names you would immediately recognize. These stellar personalities didn’t just stand at the lectern and lecture, they circulated, shook hands and chatted – face-to-face with all comers as equals.
And not just the “big names”, but a ton of people who, if you knew the handles they use when commenting on the blogs and podcasts, you would be glad to meet.
The highlight of the evening was the screening of a new climate skeptical 1-hour documentary titled “A Climate Conversation”. A terrific movie, which was shown for the first time outside of its production studios, is not yet available for public viewing…but you will want to see it as soon as it is.
Stay tuned, more tomorrow at noon.

I am here at the fabulous Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista in Orlando, Florida where the world’s true, and best, experts on the climate have gathered to analyze the latest climate science and the wrong-headed energy and policy solutions that the world’s governments are determined to impose on us all. Check back here often over the next three days for the very latest news, which will appear at the top of this post as it is published.

My thanks go out to the Heartland Institute for providing me with Media Access to the conference, and to the CO2 Coalition for again inviting me to attend as a member….and, more so, many thanks to Anthony Watts and the ever-striving Charles the Marvelous Moderator who make WUWT not only possible, but have made it the world’s most viewed internet blog on climate.
