|Great article in the National Review by
29 Feb 08 - "A whole cottage industry has sprung up among people
who get grants, government agencies who get appropriations, politicians
who get publicity, and the perpetually indignant who get something new
to be indignant about. It gives teachers something to talk about in
school instead of teaching.
"Those who bother to check the facts often find that not all those
who are called scientists are really scientists and not all of those who
are scientists are specialists in climate. But who bothers to check
facts these days?
"A new and very different conference on global warming will be held
in New York City, under the sponsorship of the Heartland Institute, on
March 2nd to March 4th — weather permitting.
"It is called an "International Conference on Climate
Change" that will examine the question "Global Warming: Crisis
or Scam?" Among those present will be professors of climatology,
along with scientists in other fields and people from other professions.
"They come from universities in England, Hungary, and Australia, as
well as from the United States and Canada, and include among other
dignitaries the president of the Czech Republic, Václav Klaus.
"All told, there will be 98 speakers and 400 participants.
"This will be one of the rare opportunities for the media to hear
the other side of the story — for those old-fashioned journalists who
still believe that their job is to inform the public, rather than
promote an agenda.
"Those who have a big stake in global-warming hysteria are unlikely
to show up at the conference in New York, and unfortunately that
includes much of the media.
