    Should lobbyists supporting the oil, gas and energy sectors should be allowed to attend climate change conferences?  Since attendees represent their countries at these meetings, why should corporations be a part of this process?
    Any feedbacks?

      Should researchers who get their money from government grants be allowed to attend?

      Should government officials who base part of their campaign on climate change be allowed to attend?

        Universities get grants from the government.  This money is then allocated to the different departments conducting research in their area of expertise.  The money is not a lot.  Researchers only published their results in journals related to their field of study.  They don't seek publicity from the media.  That is not their int.ention.  If their findings are significant they may be brought to the public attention.

        Secondly, government officals campaign contributions are based on other issues as well, not just climate change.  So, I feel this is not relevant
