Duration: 2 Days: Friday to Saturday

Location: Berlin, Germany “Berlin Mitte”, in the heart of Berlin, in the immediate vicinity of S-Bahn and U-Bahn sation Friedrichstraße

Parallel to the UN Climate summit in Cancún we want to invite you to our 3rd International Climate conference. One year after the Climategate scandal, leading international scientists will present new findings in the fields of climate science and energy. In many cases these findings are contrary to the claims made by the IPCC. During two days we will cover topics from the science of climate change to the socio-political and economic impact of current climate and energy policies. Due to the current changes in Europe’s energy policy, this topic will receive special attention. On the following link you will find an available online registration.

All presentations, except in concurrent sessions, will be simultaneously interpreted: English-German and German-English

First Day: Friday, 3 December 2010, 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm
