Nine Conferences on Climate Change

The Heartland Institute is “the world’s most prominent think tank promoting skepticism about man-made climate change.”

— The Economist

The Heartland Institute has organized and hosted nine International Conferences on Climate Change since 2008, events that attracted extensive international attention to the debate taking place in the scientific community over the causes, extent, and consequences of climate change. Videos from the latest conference can be viewed below. Videos from previous conferences — as well as videos organized by speaker — can be browsed at the link menu bar above.

The International Conferences on Climate Change are a project of The Heartland Institute’s Center on Climate and Environmental Policy, which produces an ambitious program of research and educational projects in defense of free-market environmentalism. That effort has brought together hundreds of scientists and economic experts to participate in the production of books (including four volumes in the Climate Change Reconsidered series rebutting the alarmist reports of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), policy studies, videos, a monthly public policy newspaper, a weekly e-newsletter, events, and other educational activities.

The Ninth International Conference on Climate Change, which took place on July 7-9, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, attracted some 650 scientists, economists, policy experts, and guests willing to question whether man-made global warming is a problem worth addressing. The event was hosted by The Heartland Institute, had 32 cosponsors, and featured 64 keynoters and panelists.

Ten awards were given for life-time achievement, courage in defending climate science, effective communication, and more during five plenary sessions. Click here to visit a new website devoted to this year’s award winners and to learn about how to sponsor awards at the next International Conference on Climate Change in Washington, DC in April 2015.

At the Ninth International Conference on Climate Change in Las Vegas in July 2014, Austrian rap artist Kliez More performed his song “Klimawandel (Klimalüge, Klimaschwindel)” [Translation: “Climate Change (Climate Lies, Climate Swindle)].

Before and after his performance, Kilez More talked about why thinking for himself led him to be a “climate skeptic,”and why he wants to spread that message to his fellow Millennials around the world.
