COPENHAGEN, Denmark – A large group of UN delegates and journalists attended the Copenhagen Climate Challenge Conference at a famous historical building in downtown Copenhagen.  CFACT Executive Director Craig Rucker chaired the conference, which brought together accomplished scientists and policy experts to present scientific evidence that suggests the debate over the human influence on the climate is not settled.  From the beginning, the two day conference exceeded expectations and the mood was very upbeat.  The crowd was so large it flowed out the door and into the hallway. 

Attendees heard world renowned climate scientist and Science & Environmental Policy Project President Dr. S. Fred Singer explain how the changes in climate over the past 100 years are not outside of the natural variability. IPCC reviewer and expert oceanographer Dr. Niklas Nils-Axel Morner of Stockholm University, gave a detailed presentation on how the changes in sea level are not due to man-made causes. Professor Cliff Ollier, a geologist and emeritus professor from University of Western Australia, and Professor Ian Plimer, a professor of Mining Geology at the University of Adelaide also gave excellent presentations explaining how science proves that man is having a negligible effect on the climate.

Several experts presented evidence that carbon dioxide is not harmful to plant or human life and should not be considered a pollutant. Others presented the case that the proposed UN climate change treaty will not have a substantial beneficial effect on climate. Therefore, the nations of the world should not sign a treaty in Copenhagen this December.

Throughout the day reporters from major publications pulled aside our VIP speakers.  The press coverage included reporters from the BBC, The Guardian (UK), Russian state television, FAZ (Frankurt, Germany), the NY Times, TV 4 (Britain), Reuters, BBC Radio Live, and many more.

The Committee of a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) partnered with the Climate-Sense Coalition to sponsor the Copenhagen Climate Challenge Conference.
