    and any other sponsors and ask them to please have a real climate scientist speak as well. It's the least they can do after presenting the debunked nay-sayer view.

      I would guess that the organizers would counter that the "other side" has already been presented (via Inconvenient Truth, OSU Prof. Lonnie Thompson, etc.) & that they are just trying to give the deniers some face time.

      In fact, tomorrow (July 6th) the same organizers have a "debate" scheduled to follow a local showing of An Inconvenient Truth:

      Meet us at the film showing of "An Inconvenient Truth" at the Gateway Drexel Theatre at 1550 North High Street, within the new Gateway Complex at The Ohio State University at 7PM on Thursday, July 6th; see the film for $5.00, then stay for the free debate at 9:00 PM in the Black Box Conference Room at the Theatre Complex.

      You do not need to attend the film to attend the free debate which will follow the film. We have coupons for the film which make it possible to see the 7PM showing for only $5.00. You may pick-up a coupon at the 1st UU Church Office or you can get a coupon from a Community Leaders Forum person within the Lobby of the Theatre on Thursday night, 7/6, at 7PM. If you are interested in knowing both sides of the argument about global warming, this is a golden opportunity for an excellent education on this issue from those who claim to be experts.

      Location: 1550 North High Street, within the new Gateway Complex at The Ohio State University

      I don't know who will be doing the debating, but I would guess that Prof. Essenhigh will be there, as well as Prof. Thompson.

        "both sides of the argument" crap. It's so absurd, and someone should call them on it. Lou Dobbs had a similar "debate" a couple of weeks ago on his show, presenting the two contributers as if their opinions were equally valid. Bullshit.

        I hope the person they have presenting the actual science side is a good speaker and debater. The facts are on his/her side, so a good presenter should be able to win handily.

        Will you be going? If sos, let us know what happens!
