ABIDES Event — Wednesday, June 20, 2 PM, Major Groups – Pavilion T


(Rio de Janeiro)  U.S. Senator James Inhofe will deliver an important message to the Rio+20 summit that will both answer and raise important questions.

Where does the U.S. Senate stand on Rio+20?

What will American policy be?

What will America spend?

Where is President Obama?

The United States has always been a principal funder of the UN and understanding America’s policy response is crucial to interpreting the outcome of Rio+20.  Senator Inhofe is the leading voice in the U.S. Senate critical of UN attempts to restrict energy development and subject sovereign nations to intrusive green mandates that provide little meaningful benefit to the environment.

The press conference, entitled “sustainable development – decision making process, what is the truth?” is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20 at 2 PM in Major Groups – Pavilion T.  The event is sponsored by ABIDES, the Brazilian Association for Integration and Sustainable Development and will feature Senator Inhofe, ABIDES President Everton Carvalho, CFACT President David Rothbard, Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, Lord Christopher Monckton and journalist Magnus Gudmundsson.

CFACT, the Committee For a Constructive Tomorrow, is a U.S. based NGO that addresses issues of environment and development around the globe.  It is the preeminent organization at Rio+20 questioning the orthodoxies surrounding sustainable development and climate change.
