My abstract was selected for the conference. They offered me 2500 euros as the access grant. They even offred me discout for hotel reservation. I had my own doubts about the authenticity of the conference as my experience in attending many international conference did hint me that this was fake. - I did not pay them - I instaed asked them to pay the hotel reservation from the access grant.

I was invited to submit a paper for "3rd Working Group On Global Warming Conference & Expo 2010" to be held from 24-28th Sept. 2010, at Mayfair Hotel,UK. On submitting an abstract, it was duly accepted and now, I have been asked to obtain reservation at Mayfair, UK.-- Is this conference also a fraud? Please reply.

I hav this similar emeail letter today. I was courious. Then I googling and found this blog help me. Since 3 years ago till now they still do this. Here is his email: Dear Colleagues, Global Warming Conference Invitation This is to announce the call for papers for the Working Group On Global Warming Conference & Expo 10(WGGW Conference & Expo 10), 24th - 28th September 2010 at Mayfair Hotel UK, 26 Park Lane London, W1K 1BE United Kingdom. Background The financial, food, fuel and climate crises are individually serious issues, but in combination their impact could be catastrophic for the global economy. Perhaps we stand at a crossroads. Even as we move into a global economic downturn there are growing calls for an accelerated transformation towards low carbon and resource productive economies. To move forward will require new and more efficient solutions, technologies and products alongside behavioral change. Climate change is now universally recognized as a significant global environmental challenge and as a consequence, debate over the measures needed to tackle climate change has moved up to the top of the agenda amongst civil society, business and government. The United Nations Global Warming Conference in Copenhagen in December 2009 highlighted the major challenges and opportunities associated with climate change as we move towards post 2012 carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction targets. In September 2008, the UK raised the bar by announcing a target of cutting CO2 emissions by 80% by 2050. Innovation will be a core part of the way forward. The Stern Review underlined that increased investment in R&D and innovation could significantly reduce CO2 emissions and we have seen more than $5 billion of venture capital invested in clean tech worldwide since September 2007 (Source: Ernst & Young).. However, we need to create much better international, national and regional structures and systems to adapt to climate change as well those to stimulate, nurture and progress new low carbon ideas through R&D to commercialization and the marketplace. A new system is needed that fosters sustainable, low carbon and resource productive innovation - short, medium and long-term. Designers, innovators, investors, entrepreneurs, consumers and governments all have a role to play in the change that is needed. Concept WGGW Conference & Expo 10 themed “Impacts of the Global Recession on Sustainable Development, Global Warming Policy and Markets will provide a platform to discuss the future opportunities and challenges related to the design, development and commercialization of low carbon innovation, technologies, products and services. WGGW Conference & Expo 10 will include invited and refereed papers from academics, consultants, entrepreneurs, investors, technology providers, designers, sustainability, environment and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) managers as well as other business functions. The event will be a unique learning experience, networking space and an opportunity to think. Delegates will come globally from companies, entrepreneurs, as well as academia, government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The conference is supported by an international Advisory Board. Conference topics WGGW Conference & Expo 10 welcomes conceptual and research-based papers covering sustainable innovation, technology, product and service design and development. Papers focused on low carbon solutions and sustainable innovation related to the following topics are particularly welcomed: • Global Warming and Climate Change and the Oceans • Sustainable Environment, Health and Development • Remote Sensing and Global Surveillance • Water Resources Management • Carbon & GHG Management • Extreme Events and Impacts Assessment • Greenhouse Gas & Ecosystems • Human Health In a Changing Climate • Agricultural and Forestry Resources Management • Clean Energy Technology • Low GHG[...]

Comment on From spirit duplicator (Banda machine) to iBook: progress! by Brian Jacob

Hello, I may be a little late here...but, for Archie Moore, I know how to work the machine you speak of. First, you must procure the master units and the spirit fluid in order to operate the machine to make copies. There is a company in Wayne, NJ, called "Repeat-O-Type" Manufacturing Corporation that still manufactures these products. You can find their website quite easily online by merely doing a Google search for "Spirit Duplicating Supplies". Once you have the supplies on hand, this is how you "image" a master unit. Remove the protective interleaving between the master sheet and inked carbon paper and simply write (using a ballpoint pen) or type on the master unit. This will create a negative image on the back side of the sheet with the carbon ink. It is this ink that makes the copies. Now, on to using the machine. First, attach the gallon can using the hose you mentioned, and position the can lower than the machine. This will prevent excessive fluid from flowing into the machine, which will draw fluid into itself through suction. Then, prime the machine with fluid by depressing the "PRIME" lever several times. (Your machine should have something akin to this). There should be a viewing window in which you can see the fluid entering the machine and absorbing into the wicks (which transfers the fluid to a roller which in turn, transfers the fluid to the paper). Once you see the fluid flowing freely into the machine, stop depressing the prime lever. Now, take the negative image side of the master unit, and attach it to the rotating cylinder by using the clamp. Turn on your machine, select a light-medium pressure, and hit the feed switch...and VOILA! You're cranking out purple copies. Hope this was of help! Brian

Just to mention that my FoI request to DfT has resulted in an admission that their preliminary reassessment last July resulted in a change. They have released extracts from a submission dated 14/7/09 on "DECC Proposals for the Shadow Price of Carbon" which seem to state that their usual forecasting model was not well-suited to changes as big as those proposed by DECC in later years ! Consequently they had done some "off-model analysis and reasoning" to show that the monetised net benefits would be reduced but "it seemed likely that the economic case for additional capacity at Heathrow airport would remain positive".
