From June 2–4, the Skeptics Society hosted the Environmental Wars conference which brought together scientists, writers, environmentalists, and thinkers from all points along the spectrum of the environmental debate.
Since the conference, there has been a lot of lively discussion happening in various independent blogs across the internet. In this week’s eSkeptic, as a follow-up to the conference, we link to a couple of them that have reported on and summarized the events of the weekend.
The DeSmogBlog, dedicated to “clearing the PR pollution that clouds climate science”, sent a team to Caltech to do a live report of the conference. In addition to the blog posts, you can listen to several one-one-one interviews with Sarah Pullman, one of DeSmogBlog’s regular contributors.
The Commons Blog
The Commons, a collaboration of multiple authors, is a free-market environmentalist blog headed up by Iain Murray and Jonathan Adler (one of the conference speakers). Adler posts a series of summaries covering the each speaker at the conference.
Pasadena Weekly report
Carl Kozlowski, of Pasaedna Weekly, reports on the conference.
