Oh, to be a fly on the wall at the International Conference on Climate Change in New York right now. "Hundreds of the world's leading scientists, economists, and policy analysts will come together to explore key issues overlooked by advocates of the theory of man-made global warming." Even the Wall Street Journal notes that "many in the blogosphere consider global-warming skeptics like those on parade in midtown Manhattan to be at best flat-earthers and, at worst, paid shills for the oil industry."
Desmogblog has put together briefing notes on many of the presenters at the conference, including TreeHugger faves like Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (remember CO2- We call it Life?) and various other resumé-padders and cranks. Full coverage at ::Desmogblog
