The Heartland Institute’s Seventh International Conference on Climate Change, Chicago

From May 21 to 23, 2012, The Heartland Institute will host its Seventh International Conference on Climate Change, a three-day event in Chicago piggybacking on the NATO Summit occurring on May 19-20.

This year’s theme is “Real Science, Real Choices.” “Real science” refers to the distinctions that must be made between science has it has been practiced since the Enlightenment and “post-normal science” that isn’t science at all. Real science has falsifiable hypotheses and is data-driven, while “post-normal science” does not. “Real choices” refers to the choices being made as a consequences of unjustified alarmism over man-made global warming. We are shutting down or refusing to develop safe and affordable reserves of coal, oil, and natural gas, and we are “burning food” by using ethanol to power SUVs. These are real choices with real consequences for human well-being as well as the environment.
