NCPA's Burnett to Speak at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change


Dallas, TX (Feb. 14, 2008)  H. Sterling Burnett, senior fellow with the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA), will speak at the upcoming 2008 International Conference on Climate Change, the first major international conference to focus on issues and questions not answered by advocates of the theory of man-made global warming.  Sponsored by the Heartland Institute, the conference will bring hundreds of scientists, economists, and public policy experts from around the world together in New York to call attention to widespread dissent in the scientific community to the alleged "consensus" that the modern warming is primarily man-made and is a crisis. 

The NCPA is one of 18 official co-sponsors of the three-day event.  In addition to Burnett, NCPA Adjunct Scholars Denis Avery, David Legates and Fred Singer will also speak at the conference.

The goals of the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change are:

  • to bring together the world's leading scientists, economists, and policy experts to explain the often-neglected "other side" of the climate change debate;
  • to sponsor presentations and papers that make genuine contributions to the global debate over climate change;
  • to share the results of the conference with policymakers, civic and business leaders, and the interested public as an antidote to the one-sided and alarmist bias that pervades much of the current public policy debate; and
  • to set the groundwork for future conferences and publications that can turn the debate toward sound science and economics, and away from hype and political manipulation.
