The title of Dr. Peiser's talk was "To Heat or Eat: Europe's Climate Policy Fiasco"

Our press release on the luncheon says, "Citing Europe’s ‘green obsession’ and inflexible, failed climate policies as key reasons why so many EU economies are faltering on the brink of bankruptcy, Dr. Benny Peiser shocked his audience with images of EU forests ravaged by energy-poor citizens in search of fuel. Friends of Science say climate change and global warming policies should be based on scientific evidence, not apocalyptic computer modeled forecasts." See here.
