Among the nearly 100 featured speakers at the upcoming 2008 International Conference on Climate Change, sponsored by The Heartland Institute and to be held in New York City, March 2-4, will be two distinguished world figures who will present their views on the world debate concerning the likely consequences of global warming. They are:
- The Honorable Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic, and
- Yuri Izrael, science advisor to Vladimir Putin, president of the Russian Federation
Global warming from greenhouse gases remains one of the most controversial policy issues of the day. Although many observers support the view that climate change is a crisis, many others -- including highly regarded scientists at major universities around the world -- remain skeptical that this is so.
The skeptics' case will be presented at an international conference scheduled for March 2-4, 2008, at the Marriott Marquis Times Square Hotel in New York City, sponsored by The Heartland Institute. Hundreds of the world's leading scientists, economists, and policy analysts will explore the key issues overlooked by advocates of the theory of man-made global warming.
