This short video (4:30) was shot and edited by videographer Paul Budline from New Jersey, and it encapsulates short clips from many of the speakers at the conference. It is a good summary and worth your time. There’s a bit of a “Friday Funny” on “big oil” that follows too.
For the purpose of full disclosure, Budline in an email to me noted that:
“I pitched the idea to Heartland because I have been following this for so many years. But I can not afford to do anything that has to do with those dreaded Latin words pro bono, so I gave them a very reasonable budget. They [Heartland] provided no guidance on who to interview or on any of the writing or editing or anything else…”
It should also be noted that Heartland did not pay the speakers, including yours truly, but did cover our travel expenses. I think “low budget” would be the best way to describe the conference compared to say, the Fall 2013 AGU conference I attended, but I think the “bang for buck” factor was pretty good.
One notable difference between ICCC9 and the AGU 2013 Fall conference were the sponsors. On the left is the AGU sponsors, on the right, Heartland’s (click to enlarge/read).
For those that don’t believe the AGU sponsorships, note that I covered this at WUWT last fall, and of course you can still see the page at AGU here http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2013/general-information/thank-you-to-our-sponsors/
…where they thank “big oil” for the money to put on their science extravaganza.
