Groups Plan Madison, Wisconsin Events on Global Warming

Published October 6, 2009

Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are planning two events to call attention to global warming–the sound science, sound economics side of the debate, rather than the alarmism that tends to pervade the halls of academia.

On Friday, October 9, Collegians For A Constructive Tomorrow will welcome former vice president Al Gore to the city with a rally sending the message that he is wrong on global warming science, and his policies of cap-and-trade are wrong for America.

Gore will be in Madison to address the Society of Environmental Journalists about the United Nations’ Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen.

The rally is sponsored by Collegians For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) and Americans for Prosperity – Wisconsin.

When: Friday, October 9, 2009; 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon CST

Where: State Street corner of the Capitol Square

Speakers: Sen. Glenn Grothman and Rep. Jim Ott

Also on global warming, the Science and Public Policy Institute’s Senior Policy Advisor, Lord Christopher Monckton, will speak at the University of Wisconsin – Madison campus on Monday, October 12.

Lord Monckton–who has delivered stirring keynote addresses at three International Conferences on Climate Change sponsored by The Heartland Institute–was former policy advisor for Margaret Thatcher and now is director of his own consultancy firm, giving technical advice to corporations and governments. He is a vocal skeptic of global warming and has published an analysis and summary of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fourth Assessment Report on climate change.

Lord Monckton, an internationally respected speaker who frequently lectures on college campuses and at conferences, is critical of prevailing climate change opinions of those on the Left, making the bold statement, “Greens are too yellow to admit they’re red.”

When: Monday, October 12, 2009; 7:00 p.m. CST

Where: Room 3650 Humanities

Lord Monckton’s campus address is sponsored by the UW-Madison chapter of Collegians For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT). For more information, please contact Christina Wilson at [email protected] or 218/590-1632.
