International Conference on Climate Change

The International Conference on Climate Change is a conference organized by the Heartland Institute which aims to bring together global warming skeptics who “dispute that the science is settled on the causes, consequences, and policy implications of climate change.” [1] [2] [3] The first conference took place in 2008. [4] As at 2017 there have been twelve conferences. Most of the events have been held in the United States, but there is one in Australia and two in Germany.
