11 - 12 December, Essen, Germany

International Conference on Climate and Energy

The Answer to the 18 Year Pause of Global Warming

According to the "World Climate Council" IPCC there is no global warming for the last 18 year. But despite this obvious discrepancy between alarmist climate models and empirical data, the world's political leaders won't stop "fighting climate change".  


In a time when mounting evidence asks for a critical review of the current policies, we bring international experts to Essen, Germany to talk about the threats of ocean acidification, polar bear extinction, extreme weather, temperature rise, the disappearing glaciers and many more.
