Full Description: 

This event promises to tell us what the science really says about global warming and appears to only feature one scientist. Viewing the web sites of James Taylor and Dr. E. Calvin Beisner reveal common misconceptions and inaccuracies about what the climate science says.

However, Dr. Patrick Michaels appears to have a good handle on the relevant science (judging from an interview I saw with him) but questions just how much we should do to deal with climate change.

The presenters are clearly stacked to represent both the free market response to climate change and climate science deniers.
