Vaclav Klaus Joins Skeptics' Conference


Vaclav Klaus joins skeptics' conference EU President to confront global warming alarmists

Vaclav Klaus, the Czech Republic's opinionated president and current president of the European Union, will keynote a session of the second International Conference on Climate Change March 8-10 in New York.

Klaus, who holds the EU presidency as it rotates among the 27 member nations, has been an outspoken and controversial skeptic about the causes and severity of global warming.

His recent book, "Blue Planet in Green Shackles," argues that the debate over global warming has "become a symbol and example of the clash between truth and propaganda." He makes the case that policies being proposed to address global warming are not justified by current science and are, in fact, a dangerous threat to freedom and prosperity around the world.

Global warming is one of several issues that Klaus, 67, advances against the prevailing view of other EU members.

James M. Taylor, senior fellow at The Heartland Institute and organizer of the conference, said, "President Klaus is a human rights warrior and a true champion of basic human freedoms. His insight into the negative correlation between heavy-handed greenhouse gas restrictions and basic human freedoms will provide a sensational addition to the 2009 International Conference on Climate Change."

Joseph Bast, president of The Heartland Institute, producer of the event along with more than 40 co-sponsors, said, "In the past nine months, the science has grown even more convincing that global warming is not a crisis. The crisis has been cancelled by sound science and common sense."

Klaus joins a line-up of more than 70 speakers, including the world's climate science elite, economists, and meteorologists, including:

* José María Aznar, former prime minister of Spain

* American astronaut Dr. Jack Schmitt

* Richard Lindzen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the world's leading experts in dynamic meteorology, especially planetary waves

* William Gray, Colorado State University, leading researcher into tropical weather patterns

* Willie Soon, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

* Roy Spencer, University of Alabama at Huntsville, principal research scientist and team leader on NASA's Aqua satellite


Dan Miller, executive vice president of The Heartland Institute, a 25-year-old national nonpartisan think-tank based in Chicago, said, "All of the event's expenses will be covered by admission fees and individual and foundation donors to Heartland. No corporate dollars earmarked for the event were solicited or accepted."
