Twelfth International Conference on Climate Change Will Focus on ‘Resetting U.S. Climate Policy’ for the Trump Administration
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL – The Heartland Institute will host the 12th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-12) at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, DC on Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24, 2017. The theme of the two-day conference is “Resetting U.S. Climate Policy.” Speakers will present to the Trump administration and members of Congress the case for ending the Obama administration’s “war on fossil fuels” and embracing forward-looking agenda based on scientific data and economic analysis.
The Heartland Institute is globally recognized as a leader of the climate change debate. In 2016, a peer-reviewed article in Global Environmental Change said “Heartland has been recognized by scholars as a significant contrarian actor, and has been prominently studied in past literature on organized climate skepticism.” In 2014, a peer-reviewed article in Geoforum about a report produced by Heartland for the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) said the report offered a “scientific background … quite similar to the IPCC report.”
“The purpose of this conference is to introduce members of the Trump administration and newly elected members of Congress and their staff to leading scientists and economists who hold a data-based, non-alarmist view of the climate,” said Joseph Bast, president of The Heartland Institute. “It’s time to reset U.S. climate and energy policy away from the alarmism and fake science that dominated policymaking during the Obama era, and plot a new course based on real scientific data and economic analysis. The American people deserve a huge ‘peace dividend’ that can be brought about by ending the unnecessary and futile war on fossil fuels.”

It would benefit California is Governor Brown and his staff of global warmer would attend this conference and learn the truth about climate change. I doubt they will, as learning the truth could put a kink in their cap and trade money grubbing scheme.
