The Heartland Climate Conference in New York in 2008 was one of the first that presented the skeptics view.

There is a conundrum that requires analysis. Polls show people continue to put dealing with global warming due to human CO2 near the bottom of their list of concerns (Figure 1). Meanwhile, CO2 reduction continues to dominate government policies, remains central for mainstream media, is used to justify wasting billions on completely unnecessary mitigation programs […]

“It occurred to me…” Academic gowns show universities are medieval institutions being dragged kicking and screaming into the 17th century. Global Warming was just one issue The Club of Rome (TCOR) targeted in its campaign to reduce world population. In 1993 the Club’s co-founder, Alexander King with Bertrand Schneider wrote The First Global Revolution stating, […]
