CFACT delegation headed to Paris to challenge UN climate pact

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CFACT, a Washington, D.C.-based public policy organization that is a leading international voice for sound science and climate skepticism, is sending a delegation of science and policy experts to the UN summit on climate change in Paris, COP 21.  The summit runs November 30 to December 11. 

"Since the collapse of COP 15 in Copenhagen, the UN has been trying desperately to lock the world's nations into a new global warming treaty," says CFACT President David Rothbard.  "With the scientific evidence mounting against them, they know this may be their last chance to do so, and bring the U.S. on board while Barack Obama is still President."

President Obama knows a UN treaty will not be ratified by the Senate and is pushing for a non-binding "agreement" that places him at odds with other world leaders.  This is one of many crucial sticking points that indicate anything can happen at the summit.  CFACT is headed to Paris to present scientific and economic facts that detail what a crushing mistake a UN climate pact would be.

CFACT's delegation will include retired atmospheric scientist Dr. S. Fred Singer, geologist and environmental scientist Dr. Robert Carter, and former Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore.

Marc Morano, publisher of CFACT's ClimateDepot.com, one of the most visited and influential climate news and information services on the Internet, will also be part of CFACT's Paris lineup.  He served as communications director for the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and has worked in television, radio and print journalism.

CFACT is also announcing the world premiere of its groundbreaking new documentary in Paris, "Climate Hustle," hosted by Morano. 

"Climate Hustle" assembles an impressive group of experts in climate science and policy, many of whom worked on the UN's climate assessments, but left after the UN ignored overwhelming evidence that contradicts its position. The film is planned for U.S. release in 2016.

"Climate Hustle" will premiere at an invitation-only event at the Cinéma du Panthéon, beside the Sorbonne, on Monday, December 7, at 7:30 PM.  There will be a red-carpet ceremony and champagne reception prior to the screening.   Credentialed media that RSVP may be able to attend, but seating is very limited.

CFACT, founded in 1985, is a UN-recognized NGO that has been presenting the hard facts that contradict errors in climate science and policy at UN conferences for more than two decades.  This year CFACT is teaming up with the Heartland Institute and the Cooler Heads Coalition to analyze the UN discussions, inject facts, and make available leading scientific and policy experts who offer much-needed balance to the climate debate.  They will conduct a series of scientific briefings, press conferences and displays.

CFACT experts are available for comments, interviews and analysis throughout COP 21. Contact to schedule an interview.
