Addresses by Vaclav Klaus, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, NASA astronauts supplement panels on science and economics of climate change

The Heartland Institute today announced a finalized schedule for the Seventh International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-7), taking place in Chicago on May 21–23. Speaking at dinner Monday night will be Czech President Vaclav Klaus, who holds a Ph.D. in economics and has been a vocal critic of climate change alarmism.

Breakfast on Tuesday, May 22 will feature a panel discussion by two Apollo astronauts – Harrison Schmitt (Apollo 17) and Walter Cunningham (Apollo 7) – as well as two former NASA engineers. They will discuss why they signed a letter with dozens of other NASA alumni warning the agency that its promotion of “unproven and unsupported remarks” on global warming is damaging NASA’s reputation.

At lunch on Tuesday, May 22, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) vice-chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, will deliver a speech and take questions from the audience. Sensenbrenner’s committee has jurisdiction over the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Energy, NASA, NOAA, and several other federal agencies.
