Hundreds protest Global Warming

This was sent to me in an email from a friend, who got it from another friend, and so on, so I am unable to give it proper attribution. Let me know if you come across the originator’s name. I would love to give him/her credit.

On this subject, I would like to alert those interested in this topic to the existence of a conference which will occur next weekend in New York City: The 2009 International Conference on Climate Change “Global Warming: Was it ever really a crisis?”  March 8-10  NYC   The Marriott Marquis

I attended the one last year and found it very informative and encouraging. It was exciting to see and meet several of the authors whose scientific works and blogs I had been reading– Willie Soon, Bill Gray, Patrick Michaels, Roy Spencer, Ross McKitrick–and the absolute highlight of the conference, the keynote speech by Vaclav Klaus. So much was going on, it was hard to choose which lectures to attend. I really regret not being able to attend this year, but since I am “self-funded” -it is a luxury I cannot quite justify after seeing our savings shrink in half.  This year Richard Lindzen is speaking–perhaps the one major dissenting climate scientist who was absent from last years program. I regret I will not get to hear him speak.

If you are interested in listening to any of the talks from last years conference, you can access them here. I especially recommend the talks by McKitrick, Spencer, Gray and Klaus–though many others were very worthwhile.

In addition to the conference, I ventured out on my own and learned how to use the subway–no small accomplishment for this rural girl– so I could visit the Met–another wonderful experience. I also was able to meet up with my brother-in-law who lives in NYC.   Well, maybe if  the economy turns around, I can attend next year…..

Or better yet, enough people will hear what these scientists and economists have to say, and there won’t be a need for such a conference.

I can hope an dream, can’t I?

If a picture is worth a thousand word – this is the picture.

If you find the origin of the pic let me know so I may credit as well.

In the meantime it’s going on my blog.

I would love to go to this. Maybe next year – if there still needs to be one that is. (Dark humor.)

Lynne,
I will go with you. I am bummed I couldn’t pull it off this year. Last year I met Keith Lockitch who was attending the conference from ARI, and this year he’s a speaker and ARI is a co-sponsor. I think that’s progress.

Yaron Brook is also speaking there this year (3/10 as seen on Twitter)!

It’s a deal. This would work be a great conference to jumpstart any in-line activism (as recommended by Burgess) I might decide upon.
