CANCUN, Mexico, Dec. 8, 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.
