After a successful trip to Rome this spring to combat climate alarmism, The Heartland Institute is now setting its sights on COP-21 – the 21st meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is scheduled to take place in Paris in December. We request your help in this fight against global warming alarmism!
In April, The Heartland Institute made headlines when it sent a delegation of scientists and experts to the Vatican climate summit to provide Pope Francis the truth about climate change: There is no human-caused global warming crisis.
The delegation included E. Calvin Besisner from the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation; Hal Doiron, former NASA engineer; Richard Keen, instructor of meteorology at the University of Colorado; Christopher Monckton, chief policy advisor to the Science and Public Policy Institute; and several other leaders in the battle against extreme environmentalism.
Heartland’s trip to Rome was covered by scores of news outlets, including The New York Times, The Guardian, National Review, USA Today, Boston Globe, The Washington Post, The Daily Caller, Breitbart, Townhall, and EWTV (the most influential Catholic television station in the United States). Heartland provided a voice that was sorely needed, and it wasn’t a quiet voice. As Director of Communications Jim Lakely wrote, “Heartland’s name echoed in the Vatican.”
Now the same effort is needed in Paris. COP-21 will be one of the most important battles in the history of the global warming debate. Just as it did in Rome, Heartland plans to make a significant impact in Paris as well. That’s where you come in! In order to make the biggest splash possible, The Heartland Institute is utilizing crowdsourcing, a popular method of fundraising.
Linked here is Heartland’s Indiegogo page. In less than a week, Heartland has raised nearly one-third of its target. This innovative way to raise funds shows just how meaningful all donations can be, including small gifts. So far, more than 80 percent of the donors have contributed $100 or less. Contributors know exactly what their donations are being used for and, depending on their level of giving, they can receive special benefits.
If you want fair representation at one of history’s most important climate change showdowns next month in Paris, please consider contributing to this objective. Every dollar counts and will be used efficiently to combat climate alarmism and to stop the derailing of the United States’ energy sector and economy in an attempt to prevent the unlikely results of a hypothetical and far-fetched theory.
