First Meeting of Sceptic Associaton 8th October

Anyone interested in forming a Scottish association to educate our politicians about the exaggerated claims of Global Warming is invited to attend a meeting Near Stirling  from 2 – 4pm on Saturday 8th October.

The intention is to have a relatively informal meeting of like minded people to work out how we might best coordinate our work to maximise our effectiveness and start making a difference in Scotland.

To book your place and receive further details please contact: mike2011 [at] haseler.net or contact me via the contact or comment form.

The meeting will be free, but I will ask for donations to cost cover tea, coffee and biscuits.

    Well done Mike. I’d love to be there but unfortunately can’t be as I’m working in Barcelona at the moment.

    I’d be happy to throw a hundred quid into the pot to cover a few costs to help get the new association rolling. If this appeals, get in touch via my email.

  2. David Bailey says:

    That is great news – I wonder if you could get a notice in the local press – you might get a bigger response than you think!

  3. Latimer Alder says:

    As a regular visitor to Stirling – but only for three or four days every month, I’d love to be an associate member. And if you could do something to get rid of all the windmills around Cambusbarron and Fintry and Callendar it woudl be great too.

  4. Gook luck with the meeting I hope we can work together. I keep at list of all the key policy documents, books and poll data you and your new members might like for your files.

  5. Latimer Alder says:

    Please enrol me as an Associate Member of the group. Though normally resident in Surrey, I spend three nights near Stirling every month, but sadly will not be there on the date you suggest. More power to your elbows…Wee Eck is clearly completely bonkers on the topic of renewable energy, and the man Broon is still at large in Kirkcaldy. Seems to me there is a lot of work to do.

  6. Anthony Watts says:

    Good for you, have fun, stay positive, and keep it about facts.

  7. Jim Petrie says:

    Love to join you but can’t, as I now live in Brisbane, Australia.
    Keep me informed!

    Sounds like a great idea! Is anything happening elsewhere in the country. I live in Somerset..
