Changing Climate

Over the past few years, the scientific debate has intensified on the natureand possible causes underlying changing climate. Questions have arisen over thesignificance of man-made green house gases in stimulating global warming.Science progresses through such rational criticism and objective discourse, andnot through consensus invoked by any authority.

The United Nation’s Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change, was formedin 1988, to provide an assessment of global climate change.  IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report (AR4)released in 2007 linked the warming over the past 30 yrs, about 0.7 C, toanthropogenic green house gases, particularly CO2. At he UN’s FrameworkConvention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), countries have been debating possiblecarbon emission targets to minimize future adverse impact of changing climateon human societies.

However, over the last few years, a number of errors have been identified inthe AR4. Also, a number of plausible alternative theories have emergedexplaining possible changes in climate. Consequently, there is a growing needto reassess the policy options and the economic impact of climate. Thegovernment of Indiatoo has taken a number of initiatives to improve understanding of the underlyingscience and policy options.

The Purpose

The purpose of this event is to initiate a fresh discussion on thedifferent dimension of the debate on global warming. The aim is to build amovement, a network of scientists, economists, policymakers, electedrepresentatives and concerned citizens who believe in sound science andeconomic policy options. The goal is to limit the rampant fear mongering,exaggerated claims and media hype, which are casting a shadow on rationalassessment of climate and objectively shaping policy, if any, to address thepossible impact of changes in climate.


In 2009, the Heartland Institute, <> a non-profitorganization in the USA, had published the “Climate Change Reconsidered”, a800-page report put together by an independent panel of scientists, under thebanner of Non-governmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC).  This report is perhaps the most comprehensiveresponse to the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change(IPCC). The next report of the NIPCC is expected to be released in 2013.

In 2010, Liberty Institute in New Delhi, in partnership with the Heartland Institute,reprinted the NIPCC report “Climate Change Reconsidered” for widerdissemination in India.In addition, the executive summary of the report has been translated in tohalf-dozen Indian languages. These may help contribute to a more rationaldiscourse on climate change.
