Speakers, Schedule Set for ‘Climate Realism’ Conference Oct 15-17, 2021 in Las Vegas

The 14th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-14) hosted by The Heartland Institute will feature more than 50 speakers

The Heartland Institute — the leading global think tank working with world-renowned scientists and policy experts on countering the hypothesis that humans are causing a climate crisis — has set its schedule for the 14th International Conference on Climate Change. This year’s conference will present the latest data on the climate and analysis of the unscientific policies of the new Biden administration.

What: 14th International Conference on Climate Change (website)

Conference theme: ‘The Great Reset: Climate Realism vs. Climate Socialism’

When: October 15-17, 2021

Where: Caesars Palace, Las Vegas

Media: Apply for credentials at this link.

Heartland’s previous 13 conferences since 2008 have featured more than 200 scientists and policy experts from around the world who look at the data and do not see human activity causing an “existential” climate crisis. At ICCC-14, you will hear that data-based, scientific case — and why we do not need a “Great Reset” to save the world from that phantom “crisis.” In fact, the Great Reset leaders are queueing up for COP26 in Glasgow would destroy freedom and prosperity across the globe.

In October, Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), p

enned an article for TIME that focused exclusively on the Great Reset, titled “A Better Economy Is Possible. But We Need to Reimagine Capitalism to Do It.”
As The Heartland Institute’s Chris Talgo explains, Klaus and the WEF exploited the COVID-19 crisis in the short term, and is now exploiting the “climate crisis” in the long-term, to replace free-market capitalism with what they call “stakeholder capitalism.” That would usher in a command-and-control structure on a global scale. And there appears to be little to stop them.

This will be the most important event of the year to counter climate alarmism and dig deep into the Great Reset with the best scientists and experts from around the world on those topics.


The conference begins the evening of Friday, October 15 and runs through the weekend. Every minute of the plenary sessions and the concurrent breakout panels will live-streamed at the conference website and The Heartland Institute’s YouTube page. Click here for the full schedule, or review below.

Excellent Reality Check Symposium in Las Vegas! I will check my favorites out via streaming on website. But here’ a wager: I’ll give you 10 to 1 odds that the mainstream media won’t mention the Symposium and the CAGW crowd will attempt to claim Big Oil paid the presenters.

AOC wishes she had available those 1.5 million Climate Change Brownshirts set to be created in the new $3.5 Trillion Democrat spending bill.

AOC could sic the Brownshirts on the Heartland conference, if she had them available now. Too late, AOC. Maybe next time.

I keep getting this flavour connection between bullshit and brownshirts, Tom.

Yes and google will platform it to comply with “The Ministry of Truth” set up by the UN and its acolytes including the IPCC.

Willie Soon, Willie Soon, so good they named him twice.

Well, he speaks twice.

Just out of interest I did a quick duck-duck and sure enough this event is being totally ignored by the [narrative-driven] mainstream media. But given the astonishing levels of hysteria leading up to the private jet fest that is a UN gathering, there’s little room for anything else – even dancing can do its bit for climate change and make those climate blues go away, albeit temporarily.

“…live-streamed at the conference website…”

You’ll only get very selected highlights etc from the CoP – via… the [narrative-driven] mainstream media.

Previous ICCCs garnered very little attention in outside media too.

October 9, 2021 3:34 am

Big oil, forget about it, it is the BIG GAS that matters now to us on this side of the pond.
Should it be a surprise that Putin is squeezing the gas exports to Europe? .. only to the illiterate fools that govern us.
The EU, UK and USA have all kind of economic and political sanctions against Russia (well deserved too) but now at the energy crunch time they do expect Putin to ignore all that and send as much gas as we want or need (?!).
They need to abandon the ‘green lunacy’ if they don’t wish to rely on Putin or anyone else for the economic prosperity.
‘Realpolitik’ the politics that is based on practical rather than moral or ideological considerations at this particular time is the necessity rather than a luxury.

October 9, 2021 3:59 am

I wish them well, including no picketing, squawking idiot ecohippies outside the conf.

October 9, 2021 5:03 am

I’ll be there, more for the science than the politics, as usual, though Australia’s High Court will be rendering their ruling in the Peter Ridd case. I’ve donated to his legal fund so will be interested in that discussion.

The ICCCs have given me a chance to meet a lot of the people deeply involved in research, e.g. Bob Carter and Nils Moerner (both now deceased). Also Harrison Schmitt, the only scientist sent to the moon (and a remarkably down to Earth guy).

Since this event is mostly suppressed by the MSM, would it make sense to inform all the
alternative media directly about it (war room, Breitbart, Canada Free Press, etc…).

This looks like it will be a very good discussion of the issues, considering the people taking part.

Are you sure Youtube is going to allow it to be seen? I thought they were censoring this kind of information. I wouldn’t watch it on Youtube anyway, if I had a second option, which, I’m glad to see, is available for this conference.

I’ll listen to all of them.

Love Vegas, for the food especially. If it’s still there, in Caesar’s palace there is a noodle place called Beijing Noodle #9, recommend any at the conference check it out.

Wish I could attend, never been to one of these

You only have to look at who funds Heartland and who funds some of the keynote speakers to see that there will be no valid science coming out at this event… it is fossil fuel and the American right speaking…

Fossil fuels fund the world economy you ninny. Please explain the part of scientific method where the funding source affects the outcomes.

it is fossil fuel and the American right speaking…

That’s a relief. The speakers won’t be talking out of their asses, then.

Oh Griffy dear, what a grumpy ineffectual and ignorant bear of little brain you are. Even if you are a reality denier (and you are, you know) you should watch or listen to this event as it gives you the other half of the narrative which is so very vital to the scientific process. To ignore this event is to deny reality and deny the scientific process, dear – are you a denier, Griffy?

Why are you so afraid of alternative viewpoints? Isn’t that the scientific method? The Heartland Institutes budget is $5MM-$7MM per year and very little of that comes from fossil fuel companies. Exxon for example, no donation since 2006. Why, because the political and reputational backlash from the anti-science zealots was not worth the hassle. How much funding does Green Peace, Sierra Club, UN, WB and the thousands of universities and laboratories receive to make sure the world is scared to death of a climate crisis that doesn’t exist. I would guess a couple of orders of magnitude more than the tiny budget of Heartland you are so afraid of. I’m particularly interested in the talk on why the climate models you want to base the future of humanity on are so poor, overpredicting temp increases by a factor of 3 on average over the past 40 years. I know why the IPCC and others do nothing about it, because it would take the heat off the climate crisis, literally and figuratively. But inquiring minds want to know.

Yeah that’s right, science only comes from those you align yourself with. Jezzuz! The stupidity – and/or simplistic trolling is breathtaking.

Dangerous of you to raise funding as we could have a look at the array of malign folks and motives funding your side, and for you to accuse others of no valid science is perfect projection. And projection always comes back to bite.

I attended the last Heartland Climate Conference, held in Washington, D.C. It was a fantastic event and the food was great. If you can go, by all means go! You won’t regret it and will learn a lot from some wonderful people pushing for truth in science.

It won’t change anything. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

The conference/convention industry made some advancements in and increased attention to remote conferencing out of necessity during the COVID lockdown and masking. I wonder if Heartland might want to take advantage of that in getting the word[s] out. Of course, if Youtube doesn’t carry it, Google won’t let me search it, and the tech oligarchy won’t let me mention it, then it would all be moot, wouldn’t it? All the better in their eyes to cover up the coming assault.

Is there any chance that your paper for schools can be made available for distribution in Gt. Britain?
