The core of the small global network of global warming skeptics are once more gathering at a conference organized by the Heartland Institute, a corporate and foundation funded think tank based in Chicago. In their ad (pdf) promoting the conference, Heartland claims that those attending will be "calling attention to new research that contradicts claims that Earth’s moderate warming during the twentieth century primarily was man-made and has reached crisis proportions."
The list of speakers and free-market think tanks co-sponsoring the conference provides a reasonably comprehensive guide to the most active of the remaining global warming skeptics. We are aiming to ensure that there are reasonably detailed profiles on the most prominent of the speakers at the conference and at least a 'stub' page in SourceWatch on each of the speakers and sponsoring think tanks. (A stub page need only comprise a sentence or two and some basic formatting, but the more comprehensive it is the better.) Once created, the new page will be indexed by Google and other search engines and quickly rise to near the top of search results. Once it's high up in the search results, the article will serve as a quick reference resource for interested citizens and journalists. You don't need to be an expert on climate change policy -- we have created a guide to the sorts of information that will be useful.
