At last, some good news on climate

Friday, 21st May 2010

This week the American Heartland Institute hosted a Climate Conference in Chicago, and East Midlands MEP Roger Helmer was there. The aim of the Conference was to challenge the conventional view on climate change, and to set out alternative analyses which are gaining increasing traction in the scientific community.

There were 80 speakers, of whom over half were qualified scientists from respected universities around the world - from the USA, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Sweden, Norway, UK, Australia and New Zealand.

All spoke on their reservations about climate alarmism, ranging from concerns that we are making vastly expensive public policy decisions based on science that is open to question, through to outright rejection of the man-made global warming argument.
