Conference including climate skeptics meets in New Hampshire

October 19, 2018

NEW CASTLE, N.H. (AP) — A conference including speakers skeptical of climate science is gathering in New Hampshire.

The Portsmouth Conference is meeting Thursday and Friday at a hotel in New Castle.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports that the Portsmouth City Council had withdrawn its support of the conference in part over concerns over several of its speakers.

Organizer Geoffrey Weiss said the conference won’t focus on the human causes of climate change. Instead, he said, the debate will look at the costs and benefits of policies to respond to climate change.

The roster also includes a New England-based sustainable farming advocate.
