By far, the most interesting speaker was Dr. Stephen Schneider of Stanford, who helped write one of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports. He has a terrific Web site. Check it out. Here is another, where actual climate scientists react to the latest news, research and bizarre opeds that appear on the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal.
