3rd (IECC) Berlin – Schedule of Events

3rd International Energy And Climate Conference

A detailed schedule of events has been provided Berlin Manhattan Institute, which I’m posting below.  Hat tip to reader Ike.

If you’re in the Berlin area, go drop by. An outstanding line-up of really interesting speeches by leaders in the field of reality-based climate science is being served up.

I just booked the train and hotel, and so I’m attending. I’m looking forward to blogging about this. It’ll be my first time attending such a conference, and so I’ll be a a stranger there. I think it’ll be fun writing about impressions, the overall atmosphere and news in general.

So here’s the schedule (Link to the programme in pdf). Note all presentations, except in concurrent sessions, will be simultaneously interpreted: English-German and German-English.

  2. Günther Vennecke

    There’s an interesting list of speakers above. Almost reads like the who’s who of climate denial crooks.

    Too bad no one ever seems to take any notice of these conferences. If I am informed correctly, this is the third one in a row. Neither the press nor any other media were present last year and the year before. So all the clowns will probably be amongst themselves again.

    1. DirkH

      Günther; you repeatedly denigrate other people. But what’s your qualification, comrade?

  3. Ike

    The geologists seemed to have learned something not to do. And this is: do not exaggerate!

    Quote Birger Löhr in Spiegel online:

    “[…] Nevertheless some scientists use the word “mega-eruption”. Although they would not use this word in public, not to be named and mocked as being disaster preachers.[…]”

    Gleichwohl macht unter Wissenschaftlern das Wort von einer “Mega-Eruption” die Runde. Öffentlich aussprechen möchten sie den Begriff aber nicht, um nicht als Katastrophenprediger verhöhnt zu werden.


    1. DirkH

      The German journalists have happily picked up the term Mega-Eruption and run with it, using it already for the eruption that happened so far. So when the volcano really blows up completely, they will have to invent Giga-Eruption for that.

      An example:

  4. Ike

    Something new about the sun? Well, Georg Feulner from PIK Institute Potsdam wrote something about the sun and her influence on climate. Interesting to read, but somehow I have the feeling he isn´t very convinced about what he writes….

    MSM is reporting about AGW sceptic Professor Horst-Joachim Lüdecke.

    Nice to read 😉
