Sixth International Conference on Climate Change
Occurred in Washington, DC on June 30 – July 1, 2011
Marriott Wardman Park, 2660 Woodley Road, Washington DC.
Dozens of think tank co-sponsors and hundreds of scientists will gather in an effort to “restore the scientific method” to its rightful place in the debate over the causes, consequences, and policy implications of climate change.
The theme of the conference, “Restoring the Scientific Method,” acknowledges the fact that claims of scientific certainty and predictions of climate catastrophes are based on “post-normal science,” which substitutes claims of consensus for the scientific method. This choice has had terrible consequences for science and society. Abandoning the scientific method led to the “Climategate” scandal and the errors and abuses of peer review by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The scientists speaking at this conference, and the hundreds more who are expected to attend, are committed to restoring the scientific method. This means abandoning the failed hypothesis of man-made climate change, and using real science and sound economics to improve our understanding of the planet’s ever-changing climate.
The Heartland website has been completely re-organised, and there is now a whole section set aside for the former functions of …. “Environment and Climate News” …. Now called the “Environment Suite“, which has many new sections. International Climate Change Conference videos for previous years can be seen, in their own websites. Please do read Heartland’s History of ICCC – Click Here. This is a vast improvement on previous efforts. Congratulations are in order to Joe Bast, Jay Lehr, James Taylor, and their team.
