for Eight Conferences on Climate Change
The Heartland Institute is “the world’s most prominent think tank promoting skepticism about man-made climate change.”
— The Economist, May 26, 2012
The Heartland Institute has organized and hosted eight 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.
Heartland’s climate conferences are a project its 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 a team of leading scientists and economic experts to participate in the production of books — including three editions in the Climate Change Reconsidered series, a combined 1,000 pages of scientific rebuttal to reports by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change — videos, a monthly public policy newspaper, events, and other public relations activities.
The environmental movement needs voices devoted to sound science and market-based, rather than government-based, solutions to environmental problems. The Heartland Institute helps amplify those voices. The nation’s air and water quality, the safety of its food, and the health and productivity of its forests all depend on bringing the best-available science and economic research to bear on protecting the environment.
