Global-warming activists ask U.N. to banish skeptics from Paris Climate Conference - Washington Times

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: Why is this 'SumOfUs' group afraid of a different point of view? Isn't reasoned debate a necessary part of crafting sound policy?

Climate-change activists are calling on the United Nations to revoke the credentials of global-warming skeptics at the ongoing Paris Climate Conference, or COP21.

The climate-change group SumOfUs submitted a formal complaint Monday to U.N. conference organizers “asking for notorious climate denying groups to be denied accreditation to the Paris climate talks,” according to a press release.

Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman, executive director of SumOfUs, singled out members of three U.S. free-market groups — the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow and the Heartland Institute — saying they “have no place at these climate talks.”
