The Heartland Institute’s Seventh International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-7) will take place in Chicago, Illinois from Monday, May 21 to Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at the Hilton Chicago Hotel. The theme is “Real Science, Real Choices.”
This conference takes a different approach than the government funded science conferences in cities like Copehagen and Cancun.
Heartland organizers say they invite scientists and experts with “wide ranging views.”
Heartland even invited one government alarmist who circulated a phony memo to discredit experts who disagreed with him—the name of that scandal was “FakeGate.” The alarmist declined the invitation.
Al Gore probably won’t attend the Heartland Conference either. He’s too busy managing all the money he got via the Obama administration’s alt-energy policies. See Peter Schweizer’s book Throw Them All Out to learn about the political incest that guys like Gore indulge in courtesy of taxpayer dollars. They laugh all the way to the green bank. Then there’s Gore’s massage schedule—that keeps him busy too.
Another guy who probably won’t attend is a philosopher from Finland—Pentti Linkola. This guy not only sounds crazy, he looks crazy. Linkola believes Earth is doomed unless we decrease our population to 500 million or so. He believes a dictatorship is superior to democracy or a republic. Freedom impedes the management of our environment.
A post at ZeroHedge.com notes this about Linkola:
“In that sense, Linkola’s agenda is really nothing new; it is as old as humans. And I am barely scratching the surface; Linkola has called for “some trans-national body like the UN” to reduce the population “via nuclear weapons” or with “bacteriological and chemical attacks.”
If you’re interested in the Heartland Conference, the organization is doing a livestream on the Web.
Seems to me in the interest of self-preservation, those of us outside the political class might want to keep an eye on zealots like Linkola.
Did you think Democrats’ enthusiasm for abortion—even late term abortion—and birth control are all about women’s rights? You might want to study up on Leftwing enviro policy—the same policy the Obama administration and Democrat leaders promote.
Seems to me we should just elect a new president so we could at least cut off slush funds for alarmists like Gore and Linkola. Obama wanted to make Gore his climate czar, remember? Instead Obama picked John Holdren—the same guy who told us in 1971 we were going to have a New Ice Age.
