Scientists, engineers, energy and policy experts from around the world gathered last week from June 13-15 to make the case for “climate realism” in Vienna, Austria. Dubbed CFACT co-hosts the 16th International Conference on Climate Change in Vienna 2The 16th meeting of the International Climate Change Conference (ICCC), the gathering featured such heavy hitters as Nobel Prize physicist John Clauser, Trump science advisor William Happer, astrophysicist Dr. Willie Soon, and Danish climatologist Henrik Svensmark, among many others.

CFACT President Craig Rucker kicked off the event by delivering a presentation that delved into the political background surrounding the climate issue from its inception in the 1980s to the present. He offered this reason for tackling the subject matter: “I think it is good to know, from those of us who have been there from the beginning, that the challenges we face today are not entirely new. Many of them, like staving off a reckless international treaty, are really just the same ole same old. In the early 2000s, our movement had to tackle the Kyoto Protocol. Today, it is the Paris Accord. Through persistence, we defeated the first. And through persistence, we can do it again!”

Rucker was followed by good friend and close ally James Taylor, President of the Heartland Institute. He did a quick takedown of several major climate alarmist talking points, including the particularly devastating fact that CO2 levels were much higher in the distant past when the Ice Ages were present.

His talk delved into the radical nature of many of the climate “solutions” being offered to address climate change, including restrictions on meat consumption, collecting human hair, managing water consumption, and even regulating the very breath we breathe to fight global warming. “If you loved COVID lockdowns,” teased Morano, “then you’re going to love the climate lockdowns the Green movement is pressing for.”

After Rucker, Taylor, and Morano opened up the conference, the audience was then CFACT co-hosts the 16th International Conference on Climate Change in Vienna 4treated to excellent presentations by academics from around the world. In addition to those named above, these included talks by Dr. Nicola Scafeti of the Universita di Napoli Federico (Italy), Dr. Nir Shaviv of Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel), Dr. Benjamin Zycher of AEI (USA), Industrial Engineer Douglas Polack (Chile), Dr. László Csaba Szarka of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and many others. EIKE chair Wolfgang Mueller closed ICCC 16 with remarks expressing optimism about the future prospects for educating the public on climate science.

The media was also present, and numerous speakers were interviewed. Among the networks reporting on the conference were the Epoch Times and European Public TV, as well as several others. Hosting the event was the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) in partnership with the Heartland Institute and CFACT. Plans are already underway to conduct another ICCC next year, potentially in Strasburg, France or Santiago, Chile.
