Meet the Skeptics at CFACT's COP16 Press Conference: Monckton, Spencer & Rothbard on Climate Science & Policy
EXTRAS: Dr. Roy Spencer to debunk cloud feedback study w/in hour of its release and Climate Depot releases 321 page report – over 1,000 skeptical scientists
CANCUN, Mexico, Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CFACT will hold a press conference on Thursday, December 9th, at 3:00 PM in the Cancunmesse, room Desierto. This will be an opportunity for journalists to balance their coverage of COP16 by listening to all points of view. This is particularly important as the scientific case for catastrophic man-made global warming continues to erode, along with public support around the globe
Science will release Dr. Andrew Dessler's new paper on cloud feedback at 2 PM (EST) on Thursday and Dr. Roy Spencer will release a statement at CFACT's press conference which raises serious questions about the study and details its flaws. "Andy Dessler's study will not stand hard scrutiny. COP16 delegates worried about the ongoing credibility problems of climate modeling will find no solace in Dessler's work," Spencer said.
Lord Christopher Monckton will skewer the flaws in climate science & policy and discuss the threat a climate treaty poses for national sovereignty and individual freedom.
On Wednesday Marc Morano, founder of CFACT's Climate Depot, released a 321 page report listing over 1,000 scientists who dissent over man-made global warming which Morano termed a "consensus buster." Later that day, CFACT brought COP16 delegates and press to tour a local village without electricity to show the impacts of energy poverty. CFACT is installing electric light in the village school for the first time.
