"Taking on the Man....Yeah"

from Power Line

Dispelling the Global Warming Myth

Earlier this month, the Heartland Institute sponsored the 2009 International Conference on Climate Change in New York. The Conference differed from most such events in that it was devoted to science, not politics or propaganda. Heartland has now made the materials presented at the conference available online, here. You can review the agenda, watch videos of the keynote presentations, read transcripts of some of the speeches, and see the Power Points that were presented by the speakers. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

These are a few of the many slides that I found interesting. This one, by Dennis Avery, puts the climate swings of the last 12,000 years (i.e., since the last Ice Age) in perspective;

This one, by Syun Akasofu, also takes a long-term view, and compares the politically-driven prediction by the UN's IPCC with the historical trend as the earth has recovered from the Little Ice Age..........
