10 April 2014

7th International Conference on Climate and Energy (ICCE-7)

Steigenberger Hotel Mannheimer Hof, Mannheim, 10 April 2014

The conference is based on the fact that the scientific debate is not over and that a critical scientific and economic analysis is more important than ever. The real science and economics of climate change support the view that global warming is not a crisis and that immediate action to reduce emissions is not necessary. This is, in fact, the emerging consensus view of scientists outside the IPCC and most economists outside environmental advocacy groups.
