There has been a concerted effort to suppress climate science and scientists whose research questions the catastrophic climate scenario. This year, a coordinated effort was launched targeting a so-called “web of denial,” including accusations that free-market think tanks were confusing the pubic on the issue. To examine the intersection of climate science and free speech, The Texas Public Policy’s (TPPF) Fueling Freedom Project will host the panel, “’Web of Denial:’ Is Real Climate Science Still Possible?” at the 15th Annual Policy Orientation for the Texas Legislature on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 2:00 pm CST at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol.

      “Free speech is the cornerstone of America,” said Fueling Freedom Project Director Doug Domenech. “Yet today the speech of climate scientists and researchers is under attack unless they agree with the politically correct so-called consensus. We should let science be science. This panel will explore what happens with you dare to think differently about climate variability.“
For over fourteen years, the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Orientation has been one of the nation’s top policy conferences, selling out each year while bringing together lawmakers, policy experts, and engaged citizens to discuss critical issues facing the Lone Star State and America.
