Liveblogging Global Warming Denier Conference, Day 2: The Search for Science

from Wildlife Promise

And we’re back! It’s the second and final day of sessions here at the Heartland Institute’s global warming denial conference. You can check out all the posts from day one at Wildlife Promise. I’m just getting settled in here at the first session at the ginormous Marriott Grand Marquis Times Square. Given that I’m used to going to sportsmen’s meetings at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg, this is quite a different experience.

While I get warmed up, check out Andy Revkin’s write-up of the event in this morning’s New York Times. He saves the best for last:

The meeting was largely framed around science, but after the luncheon, when an organizer made an announcement asking all of the scientists in the large hall to move to the front for a group picture, 19 men did so.

There are nearly 600 conference attendees.
