Emotions have run high in Poland since the United Nations climate conference came to town.

CFACT co-sponsored a climate forum at the John Paul II Center in Gliwice, with Poland’s Globalization Institute Foundation, led by Dr. Tomasz Teluk.  A venue named for “JPII,” Poland’s “freedom Pope,” seemed highly appropriate.

In the audience were veterans of Poland’s Solidarity movement who freed Poland from Socialism thirty years ago.  They do not want to go back.  They turned this scholarly forum into a lively discussion of energy, global warming and Polish independence.  We were honored.
