A Closer Look at Heartland's ICCC7 Denial-a-Palooza Speakers and Sponsors

A Closer Look at Heartland's ICCC7 Denial-a-Palooza Speakers and Sponsors

This afternoon, Joseph Bast delivered the closing remarks to the Heartland Institute’s Seventh and final “International Conference on Climate Change.” 

The final Denial-a-Palooza was co-sponsored by dozens of organizations that have received over $67 Million from ExxonMobil, Koch, and Scaife family foundations

There was tension in the air at this year’s gathering in Chicago. In the past several weeks, Heartland’s “Experts” have been jumping ship in the wake of Heartland’s disastrous Unabomber billboard campaign, and some of Heartland’s conference speakers even threatened not to show up.

More worrying to Heartland has been the sudden exodus of their corporate donors. Some suggested that this was cause for Heartland to cancel the conference, but it looks like they had one last hoorah left in them. (Barely, as Joe Bast admitted today.)

The sponsors and speakers who remained part of Heartland’s Denial-a-Palooza network for this final conference are those who would choose to go down with a sinking ship rather than accept the scientific evidence of climate change driven by industrial pollution and other man-made impacts.

Below are links to DeSmogBlog’s in-depth research on both the Sponsors and Speakers of ICCC7. This list of sponsor organizations is just a taste of the additions coming soon to the DeSmogBlog Disinformation Database.
