4th International Conference on Climate Change 2010
Campus Liberty Alliance and Liberty News Network reporting from The Fourth International Conference on Climate Change which was held in Chicago, Illinois on May 16-18, 2010. The conference called attention to new scientific research on the causes and consequences of climate change, and to economic analysis of the cost and effectiveness of proposals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The theme of the conference was titled Reconsidering the Science and Economics. New scientific discoveries are casting doubt on how much of the warming of the twentieth century was natural and how much was man-made, and governments around the world are beginning to confront the astronomical cost of reducing emissions. Economists, meanwhile, are calculating that the cost of slowing or stopping global warming exceeds the social benefits. Rebecca Terrell, writer for The New American Magazine, gives a summary of the conference schedule and speakers.

- (Media / Oppose a Balanced Budget Amendment Article V Convention)
Scott Bradley's talk about why we should oppose an Article V convention to propose a Balanced Budget Amendment was delivered at a Council Dinner of The John Birch Society in Ohio on May 4, 2013.

The John Birch Society has opposed calls for a modern-day constitutional convention (con-con) for decades and seeks to work through Congress for Constitutional amendments rather than through a convention.
Many view a con-con as a quick way to pass amendments they think will stop the big-government juggernaut. Why would politicians suddenly start following an amended Constitution after ignoring and violating the current Constitution for so long?
The remedy so desperately needed to return our country to good government is to enforce the Constitution, not amend it.
