Ninth International Conference on Climate Change - The Heartland Institute hosted its 9th International Conference on Climate Change on July 7-9 in Las Vegas, where leading international scientists discussed "man-made global warming" and its potential effects on plants, animals, and human welfare.

Attendees heard some of the world's leading climate scientists and researchers discuss the latest state of global warming science, including questions of whether man-made global warming will harm plants, animals, or human welfare. Eight hundred participants gathered to hear 64 speakers from 12 different countries despite the fierce summer heat of Las Vegas. At one point, 4,000 individuals were listening to the conference as it was streamed live from Las Vegas.

Speakers addressed myths of climate alarmism, specifically refuting the often-repeated assertion that 97 percent of scientists disagree with so-called global warming skeptics. On the contrary, speakers noted, only 0.5 percent of the authors of 11,944 scientific papers on climate and related topics over the past 21 years have said they agree most of the warming since 1950 was anthropogenic, and that is one of the necessary preconditions for an asserted global warming crisis. Speakers also cited the Remote Sensing Systems satellite record which shows there now has been no global warming for 17 years and 10 months.

Speakers included prominent authorities on climate change such as Fred Singer, Craig Idso, Willie Soon, Roy Spencer, Marc Morano, Christopher Monckton, and Anthony Watts. Videos from the event are available on Heartland's YouTube channel.
