    The International Conference on Climate Change – Part IV

    We’re still rumbling along with the stories that came out of the International Conference on Climate Change, which was organized by the Heartland Institute and held in Washington DC a couple weeks back. Given the volume of material, I’ve ended up serializing this into a series of reports. This is Part IV; you can find Parts I, II, and III here, here, and here. As | Read More »

    The International Conference on Climate Change – Part I

    As has been noted in a few other spots during this week, your humble correspondent was in Washington earlier this week to cover the most recent (Third) International Conference on Climate Change, which was organized by the Heartland Institute. For those of you who have asked, “The last one was in March – are these quarterly now?”…. the answer is, no. Given the recent effort | Read More »

    “Great Is Truth, and Mighty Above All Things”

    Due to a scheduling misunderstanding on my part (largely relating to the notion of “lunch” being an extended session) when I made my travel plans, I had to leave the ICCC event last Tuesday before its conclusion (to catch my flight home). Thus, I sadly missed this barn-burner of a closing address by Christopher Monckton. “Great Is Truth, and Mighty Above All Things” It’s a | Read More »

    A Few Tired Thoughts on the Final Day of the ICCC

    oday was the final (half) day of the 2009 ICCC, followed by flying home; I promised to toss up a few thoughts, which I’ll keep terse and to the point. Once I get caught up on other things (including some sleep), I’ll try to provide some more over-arching thoughts on it all. But for this evening, I just want to note highlights along the lines | Read More »

    A Few Late-Evening ICCC Items

    Just a quick wrap-up, since I’ve done fairly well today with keeping up with things, particularly in the morning. The two late-afternoon presentations I went to involved metrology and methods. They were marvelous.

    A Few More ICCC Tidbits

    o A single modern nuclear reactor has the generating capacity of two Hoover dams. o The present (Holocene) warming period has lasted for 13,000 years – which, in the present cycling of ice ages and interglacials, is longer than usual; it’s not unreasonable to assume that a new Ice Age may start within the next 1,000 years. o On Svalbard Island north of Norway, polar | Read More »

    Rep. McClintock interview with RedState.

    As promised, here’s the Tom McClintock interview. Link here, if that doesn’t work. As you can see, Rep. McClintock isn’t precisely shy about speaking his opinion, particularly when it comes to the religious aspect of global warming. I had originally written “essentially religious aspect” there, but when thinking about it McClintock was pretty unambiguous on that point, so neither should I be when describing him. | Read More »

    Monday Morning at the ICCC – Tom McClintock, Lawrence Solomon, and Some Real Science

    We’re working hard here. We had to be up early and ready for things to start over breakfast at 7 this morning. There were two keynotes over breakfast, and then we split into tracks; I was in a “science” track and encountered some interesting things which I’ll enumerate below.

    Preliminary notes from the ICCC breakfast: Tom McClintock.

    a href=”http://mcclintock.house.gov/”>Congressman Tom McClintock (R, CA-04) started off his comments at the ICCC breakfast session with reminding us about RFK Jr’s comment that global warming skeptics are quite a number of things, up to and including traitors. Not wanting to die a traitor’s death, McClintock then claimed that he came up with global warming long before Al Gore… in the third grade, when he noticed | Read More »

    The First Evening of the ICCC – Vaclav Klaus, Richard Lindzen

    Well, Moe and I are sitting in the media room at the ICCC in New York, following the evening’s dinner and opening talks. Moe videoed Vaclav Klaus’ talk, and then left to wrestle with getting the video uploaded for processing. I took extensive notes this evening. The events consisted of opening remarks by Heartland Institute President Joe Bast, main addresses by the President of the | Read More »
