Heartland Institute at COP24 in Poland Presenting Climate Science to Counter Conference Alarmism

Vienna House East Katowice, Ulica Sokolska 24, 40086 Katowice, Poland

The Heartland Institute, globally recognized as the leading think tank promoting skepticism of man-caused catastrophic global warming, will present the latest science on the climate in Katowice, Poland, host city of the United Nations’ 24th Conference of the Parties (COP-24). Heartland’s event, featuring two scientists and three experts on climate and energy policy in the United States and Europe, will be held at the Vienna House East Katowice from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time, 8:00 a.m. to noon ET. 

This event will also feature the public debut of a new 1,000-page report from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) titled Climate Change Reconsidered II: Fossil Fuels. It is the latest in what is now a five-volume, 4,000-plus page series stretching back to 2009 critiquing the work of the UN’s IPCC.

The event will be live-streamed from our event in Poland less than a mile away from the COP24 site. Watch it at this link or below.


The Heartland Institute is attending COP-24 in Katowice with NGO-Observer credentials during the first week, reporting from the conference site on Monday, Tuesday morning (before Heartland’s science and policy event), and Wednesday. 

“Each year the verdict becomes stronger and clearer that the scientific evidence debunks global warming alarmism, said James Taylor, senior fellow for environment and energy policy at The Heartland Institute. “While the United Nations’ Conference of the Parties frantically searches for reasons to justify its continued existence, The Heartland Institute is proud to present the science that debunks U.N. alarmism.

“We will also be presenting examples of real-world evidence contradicting important U.N. climate claims,” Taylor said.We will be delivering the truth that the only thing ‘settled’ about the global warming debate is that U.N. climate reports have little credibility. Skeptics present a far better scientific case.”
