Ross McKitrick will be speaking at the America First Energy Conference.
Ross McKitrick is senior fellow at the Fraser Institute, a member of the climate denying Cooler Heads Coalition. The Fraser Institute received $120,000 of grants from ExxonMobil between 2003-2004. All of these grants were earmarked specifically for climate change programs. They have also received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation. The institute’s director, Kenneth Green, praised Trump’s cuts to climate programs and encouraged Canada to follow in his footsteps.
“We deny that carbon dioxide—essential to all plant growth—is a pollutant. Reducing greenhouse gases cannot achieve significant reductions in future global temperatures, and the costs of the policies would far exceed the benefits.”
McKitrick has been an avid climate denier and presenter at Heartland’s annual denier conferences.
