Remember that sham climate change conference by WGGWCC 08?
Here we go again, same place, different dates, and new email addresses to which to send your information. In the copy below, I replaced the “respond to” email addresses with a string of kisses: xxxxxxxxxxxxx ;-)
An example of the latest attempt at deception, this time posted at the website of the Forestry and Research Development Agency (based in Indonesia?), follows:
22 September 2008
You are welcome to WGGWCC 08
Dear Fellow Colleagues,
On the behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committees, the Working Group on Global Warming and Climate Change (WGGWCC) announces that the 3rd International Global Warming and Climate Change Conference & Industry Exposition (WGGWCC 08) will be held at The Hyde Park Hotel, London on November 14-18, 2008. It is our great pleasure to invite you and your colleagues to register and contribute to the Working Group on Global Warming and Climate Change (WGGWCC 08) conference which is now open.
The world wide concern about global warming and it”s impact on the fate of the planet has risen to unprecedented levels in the last few years. This explosion of information on Global Warming and Climate Change has made all of us much more aware of what is happening.But, the sheer magnitude of it can also be overwhelming. We often ask ourselves, in spite of all the media, are we really certain about what we need to know and is there anything we as average citizens can do about it?
Join us on November 14th-18th,2008, as we learn the answers to those two important questions, What Do We Know? What Can We Do?
Scholars who wish to learn of recent developments in global warming and climate change scientific research will be exposed to invited plenary lectures and concurrent sessions followed by open workshop discussions with outstanding speakers and multi -disciplinary scientists. Open discussions are planned to consider the broad implications of global warming and climate change upon oceans, forests, coastal zones, urban settings, terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, human health, and economic infrastructures at local, national, regional and global scales.
Along with conference lectures and workshops, the Climate Change Industry Exposition at The Hyde Park Hotel will include over 100 booths at which representatives from the transportation, energy, petroleum and bio-fuel industries will present their products and programs to address global climate change. Other corporations, environmental organizations and educational institutions will present information about their products, projects and training opportunities.
WGGWCC had involved numerous donors to make it possible to offer access grants to as many participants as possible to enable them to participate in the 3rd Working Group on Global Warming and Climate Change Conference and Industry Exposition (WGGWCC 08).However, the limited support can only be offered to any delegate or group of delegates who have submitted one or more abstracts to the scientific program and sent a motivation letter requesting such financial support to the WGGWCC 08 Local Organizing Committee. The deadline for submission of the abstracts as well as the motivation letters requesting for financial assistance is 20th October 2008.Fax your application for access grant to +44 870 471 8814 or E-mail: xxxxxxxxxxxxx
