Prof to Present Climate Change Report in England

January 29, 2007 - In the News

Economics professor Ross McKitrick is part of a team of international scientists who will be presenting an independent summary of the latest United Nations report on climate change Feb. 5 at 10 a.m. in London, England. Other presenters include Andrei Illarionov, former advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin, and environmentalist David Bellamy.

The Independent Summary for Policymakers (ISPM) is a detailed overview of the 2007 UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report prepared by the Fraser Institute, of which McKitrick is a senior fellow. ISPM clearly lays out the state of current climate change knowledge.

McKitrick is also featured in stories from Saturday’s and today’s Globe and Mail on climate change.

A faculty member at Guelph since 1996, McKitrick is the co-author of Taken By Storm: The Troubled Science, Policy and Politics of Global Warming. He specializes in the economics of environmental policy and has been studying climate change and related policy issues for about 15 years.
