The Usual Suspects: Climate Change Deniers on Road to Stockholm

A two-day gathering of scientists – mostly greenhouse skeptics – in Stockholm in mid-September will focus on: Global Warming  – Scientific Controversies in Climate Variability”. The gathering will feature presentations by such skeptical luminaries as S. Fred Singer, Sallie Baliunas and Willie Soon.  Not all scientists are enthusiastic about the conference. Tom M. L. Wigley, a top climate researcher at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, wrote: “You may be well meaning, but I think this meeting idea is flawed. You seem to be making the same mistake as the popular press, who often give equal weight to minority views. It is true that the so-called ‘skeptics’ sometimes raise interesting points, but they are usually either on the fringe, or are quickly shown to be wrong. The normal process of scientific publishing through the peer review process will eventually sort the wheat from the chaff. I doubt that many mainstream scientists who work in the climate change area will want to come to your meeting. Certainly, it is not something I would want to participate in.”
