The Heartland Institute just got back from Paris for COP-21, the “Conference of the Parties,” commonly known as the United Nations’ annual global climate conference. The world declared COP-21 a historic moment: The “Paris Agreement” will stop humanity from raising the global temperature by 2 degrees Celsius before the end of the 21st Century!
Balderdash! Hubris of the highest order. Not only does humanity not have the ability to put its collective hand on the global thermostat, humans are not causing a climate crisis.
Heartland’s contingent to Paris presented something unique and sorely needed: the only examination and explanation of the latest climate science, economics, and sensible global energy policy one could find in the city.
For committing that sin — heresy against what has become to many a sort of religion — Heartland was subjected to protests. We brought reason and science. All over Paris, the environmental extremists pasted “Wanted” posters, accusing us of being “Climate Criminals.” Well, then. Bring it on!
Tune in to our live-stream today at 7:15 pm ET/4:15 pm PT to learn all about our adventures in Paris, where we brought climate truth to a COP-21 that sorely needed it.
