Our recent conference held at Conway Hall in central London was a huge success, with over a hundred attendees being treated to two days of rapid-fire 20 minute presentations and discussion sessions. The footage has now been published online by Mark Windows, and are available for you to view at your leisure.
Another video Mark has produced, introduces the circumstances around the last-minute move from UCL to Conway hall, and also presents interviews with many of the participants.
I had a short interview with Energy Live News
This conference was made possible by the tireless efforts of Nils-Axel Morner in the face of great difficulties, and huge credit is due to him for his determination and organisational ability.
There was a strongly upbeat mood at the conference, and it was a real pleasure to meet so many of the scientists I’ve only been able to communicate with online until now. Ned Nikolov and Karl Zeller were there, so was Nicola Scafetta, Christopher Monckton, Per Strandberg, Jan-Erik Solheim, Martin Hovland, Hans Jelbring, Peter Ward and many others, including several past IPCC reviewers.
We are starting to make a real difference to the climate debate. A member of the London assembly visited on day two, and asked pertinent questions about sea level rise, taking more information away with him. A guardian/DeSmoguk correspondent also attended, and I think we disabused her of some preconceptions about us that she had arrived with. All quiet so far on that front, and if that continues, I see it as a win. The Guardian would never post a positive story about us, so their silence speaks volumes.
On a personal note, spending some time with Ned and Karl was a real highlight. They are determined despite the setbacks and attacks they have suffered, and I hope their excellent work is recognised before much more time passes.
Benny Pieser from the GWPF attended too. During discussion he opined that we won’t be taken seriously unless and until the global surface temperature falls. he may be right, the inertia of the unholy triumvirate of Big Gov, Big Science, and Big Green is powerful, and won’t back down if they can get away with it. But I sense a shift since Brexit in the mood of people not just in the UK, but across the Western world. I also launched CLEXIT at the conference, and got a very positive response to the proposal that we fight not just with science, but with politics too. The time has come, and the gloves are off.
Finally, another huge thank you! to all who donated to help pay for the venue change. All your names were read out by Nils-Axel Morner at the end of the conference, and received a huge round of applause.
