Copenhagen Climate Challenge

During the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009 (COP15), there was a rival conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, for deniers, called the Copenhagen Climate Challenge,[1] which was organised by the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow.[2][3]

While COP15 attracted 33,200 delegates, the rival deniers' conference was attended by 60 people (15 journalists, 18 speakers, 27 audience).[1] According to Lenore Taylor of The Australian, the attendees had an average age "well over 60".[4] In closing his speech, Plimer stated that "They've got us outnumbered, but we've got them outgunned, and that's with the truth."[1] Plimer also stated that "It's been freezing in Perth and bucketing down". Perth had below-average rainfall in 2009 and temperatures of 38 °C (100 °F) were forecast for December 13.[5]
