Canceled by CDC, climate change conference moves to Carter Center

We told you earlier this week about that climate change and health conference that was cancelled by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential contest.

It’s back on, and former vice president Al Gore might have had something to do with it. And maybe Ted Turner, too.  From the Washington Post:

The meeting now planned for Feb. 16 will take place outside of any government circles. Rather than at CDC, it will be held at the nonprofit Carter Center in Atlanta. It will be a one-day event rather than the three days originally planned. Its sponsors now include nongovernmental groups such as the Harvard Global Health Institute, the Turner Foundation and the Climate Reality Project, an education and advocacy group founded by Gore.

In certain scientific quarters, celebrations have begun:

The Climate Change Conference was canceled because the CDC was subject to a Massive FBI raid this previous Wednesday at 3:30 Am.

Climate change is a silly notion. Trump will starve it of cash and expose it as a fraud.

I would like to see evidence of the billions upon billions of dollars stolen from taxpayers and how it improved the weather.

Describing climate as "weather" is like calling a mouse an elephant because they are both animals..... But hey, you are probably a climate scientist and know best...

You can think for yourself. Sea levels are rising fast. Think fast for yourself pal. Except, this affects more than you. What billions upon billions of dollars do you speak of? That shipment of cash to the green zone that got "lost'?

The reason sea levels are rising is due to the increased flow of liberal tears because Trump was elected.

CDC has admitted to destroying evidence that proved vaccines caused autism in children.

not true, andrew wakefield, a british scientist, has been demonstrated to have started this conspiracy, based on fake data. The scientific community, far beyond the CDC and America as a whole, have shown it to be fake.
