Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
Friends of Science are pleased to announce that climate change policy expert Dr. Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation in the UK, will be the guest speaker at the upcoming 10th Annual Luncheon, May 14, 2013 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Benny Peiser is the founder and editor (since 1997) of CCNet, the worlds leading climate policy network. Benny is a social scientist and a Visiting Fellow at the University of Buckingham. His research focuses on the effects of environmental change and catastrophic events on contemporary thought and societal evolution. A 10km-wide asteroid, Minor Planet (7107) Peiser, was named in his honor by the International Astronomical Union.
Dr. Benny Peiser is outspoken on how climate change policies devastate the poor and middle class. In a 2010 interview with the Jewish Telegraph, Dr. Peiser said: ...a lot of scares are overdone and are not helping a proper debate in a democratic culture. A growing number of the environmental movement now realize that a lot of the claims have unintended consequences, which are economically, morally dubious."
