Earlier this month, a group of climate deniers called CFACT staged a “conference” as a direct response to the “radical and alarmist agenda of the leftist PowerShift movement” Featured speakers included Lord Monckton, Marc Morano, clean coal reps, energy lobbyists, etc. They claim that the conference was a huge success with less than a couple dozen people in attendance. CFATC writes, “The CFACT conference stands as the kickoff to our direct response to the dangerous agenda of PowerShift 2011…they want to return America to the standard of living we enjoyed in 1882. PowerShift’s platform is frightening. America cannot function on just wind, solar, and geothermal. The world economy will come crashing to its knees, and life as we know it will come to a screeching, green halt.”
