Heartland Institue 4th Annual Climate Change Conference

As I've mentioned in a prior brief note, I had the opportunity to attend the Heartland Institute's 4th Annual Conference on Climate Change in Chicago last week.  A very basic summary of a conference which provided a tremendous amount of information and fascinating conversation is now up on the Human Events web site:

For those of you interested in the topic of the science, economics, and controversies surrounding "climate change", I highly recommend you watch several of the videos on the Heartland Institute Conference video page (also linked to in the Human Events article.)

Lindzen and Monckton are especially great, but they're all worth your time.

I should add that the Human Events article is much more of an overview than an in-depth summary because of the constraints of space.  If any of you wants more info from my notes about any of the speakers I happened to see, just let me know and I'll send you some.

Also, one subject that came up at the conference, raised by Pat Michaels among others, was the idea of starting a new peer-reviewed journal on climate science. The idea arose following the Climategate e-mails showing that warmist "scientists" have done all they can to corrupt the peer-review process to keep non-warmist scientists from getting published. Such a project would need funding, perhaps on the order of $50,000.  If you or anyone you know would be interested in being involved with such a project (by which I mean primarily in helping to fund it) please let me know.

I have uploaded the raw, unedited notes (the ones that I typed, not the ones I wrote on a pad which weren't very many anyway) here:

I really spent more time listening than note-taking so there isn't much there, but I hope you'll find it interesting to peruse.

Best,
Ross
