The first of several conferences held by The Heartland Institute, the First International Conference on Climate Change was held March 2-4 in New York.


The focus of the conference was to find answers to questions such as:

How reliable are the data used to document the recent warming trend?

How much of the modern warming is natural, and how much is likely the result of human activities?

How reliable are the computer models used to forecast future climate conditions? and

Is reducing emissions the best or only response to possible climate change?


There were 3 Guest Speakers: Vaclav Claus, President of the Czech Republic; Roy Innis, National Chairman of Congress of Racial Equality (CORE); and John Stossel, ABC News Correspondent.

There were 98 other speakers and 50 other organizations joined The Heartland Institute at the conference.
