2009 International Conference on Climate Change

New York City will host the second international conference about climate change March 8-10. The key topic to be discussed: “Global Warming: Was It Ever Really A Crisis?”

Among the questions posed in a press release:

* How much of the warming during the 20th century was natural and how much was man-made?

* Why have global temperatures been cooling in the last decade, and how long will that trend last?

* What impact will the current international financial crisis have on efforts both here and abroad to curb greenhouse gas emissions?

* How do present temperatures compare to the Medieval Warm Period 1,000 years ago?

* What is the track record for forecasts made by computer models? By the IPCC?

* Does India’s and China’s refusal to cap or reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases spell the end of international agreements on climate change?

* Does new evidence reveal greater or lesser impacts from rising CO2 levels than computer models assume?

Many more details about the conference here.

Hopefully truth, good or bad, reality will be brought to the table.
I believe the problem is serious and it needs to be shared with as many people as possible.
