Chairman of Environment and Public Works Committee recorded remarks on video from Washington, DC to be played at December 7 Event:
‘Day of Examining the Data’

PARIS (December 3) – United States Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) has recorded an address to the attendees and presenters at the “Day of Examining the Data,” taking place in conjunction with COP-21 in Paris. The event, hosted by The Heartland Institute and CFACT, takes place Monday, December 7 in the San Francisco Room at the Hotel California, 16 Rue de Berri, 75008 Paris, France.

The program begins at 9 a.m. CET with a press conference featuring several representatives of “skeptic” organizations in the United States, Canada, and Europe, followed by panel presentations and a keynote luncheon address. Sen. Inhofe’s remarks will be played at the luncheon, which begins at 11:45 a.m. CET.

“We hoped to have Sen. Inhofe at our event in the flesh, but he could not fit us into his schedule,” said Jim Lakely, director of communications at The Heartland Institute. “We are honored that he took the time to record a message for our conference, in which he expresses his views on the deliberations at COP-21 in Paris. His remarks are welcome and bound to make international news.”

Heartland’s “Day of Examining the Data” event is open to the public and will be live-streamed and archived at this link. Credentialed media should RSVP by contacting Heartland Institute Director of Communications Jim Lakely at [email protected].

Presenters at the one-day conference will make the compelling case that an objective examination of the latest climate science shows humans are not causing a global warming crisis, and that the United Nations’ “solutions” will cause more misery to the world’s poor while enriching corrupt governments.

For background on these arguments, watch presentations by some 200 scientists and policy experts at Heartland’s 10 International Conferences on Climate Change. Those who prefer to read can review the four volumes in the Climate Change Reconsidered series, produced by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) and published by The Heartland Institute.
