By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The climate change hysteria movement is expecting bold action at the COP 25 climate summit now on in Madrid. That is not how these protracted international negotiations work.

December 12, 2018 by


By Craig Rucker ~ Does the United Nations serve any purpose at all if it will not guarantee the right of participants to speak undisturbed when taking part in its process?

COP 24: Climate Lunacy Takes Center Stage In Poland

December 11, 2018 by


By Paul Driessen ~ The unwritten rule seems to be that each successive climate report and news release must be more scarifying than any predecessors, especially during the run-up to international conferences.

December 10, 2018 by

Climate Party! African Delegates Swamp Conference

December 7, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ It’s a feeding frenzy at the UN climate conference. There’s the excuse for taxpayer-paid travel, of course, and the excuse to extort huge donations from the guilty rich:  An analysis of delegates by Carbon Brief found Guinea topped the list with 406 delegates, down 86 from last time. The Democratic Republic […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In the run-up to the annually grand UN climate change summit, this time in Katowice, Poland, we can expect the usual deluge of scary climate stuff.

By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ According to a recent news story, President Xi Jinping of China and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India will not attend the upcoming UN climate summit.

Refusing To Report The Truth

July 7, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba I attended the first two International Climate Change Conferences when they were held in New York City, but a change of venue to the hometown of The Heartland Institute, Chicago, was enough to discourage someone like myself who no longer enjoys travel of any kind for any reason. The most recent Heartland […]

“Deniers” Meet And The Media Ignores Them…Again

May 19, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba “Denial” is not a river in Africa, nor is it a proper term for the legion of climatologists, meteorologists, geologists, and others like myself who have devoted decades to debunking the utter rubbish called “global warming.” So toxic has the term become, the charlatans pushing the fraud have long since abandoned it […]

May 19, 2010 by


By Jeff Poor If you asked people what the two key events in the 20th century were, most would likely point to World Wars I and II because they transformed civilization. However, can something like the debate over climate change be as equally transformative? James Delingpole, author of “Welcome to Obamaland: I’ve Seen Your Future […]

Climate Change – Follow The Money

March 17, 2009 by


The recent Climate Change conference held in New York was roundly ignored by the media, except for a couple of condescending reports in some media outlets, passing the conference off as a collection of ‘crackpot’ skeptics who are so far in the minority that they have become irrelevant. On the contrary, they were perceived as […]

Climate Change – New York Conference – Update

March 13, 2009 by


Contrary to the few reports that did make it into the media, this two and a half day conference, run by The Heartland Institute, was not made up entirely of skeptics, and some of those who are on the side of the green alarmists actually did turn up.

Global Warming Conference – Update

March 11, 2009 by


SPECIAL REPORT ON THE NEW YORK CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE The ‘Alternate’ Climate Change Conference continues in New York, but you wouldn’t know, because nowhere is it being reported other than at some blogsites, and small reports hidden away from the front pages, and usually in the form a condescending sneer at ‘crackpot deniers’.More space is […]
