At an event at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on 15 July 2010, youth groups and climate experts will highlight the melting disinformation campaign of climate deniers.

Meanwhile, attacks on climate science and scientists have been rebuffed by multiple investigations; and the National Academies of Sciences have solidified the scientific basis for action on climate change, concluding that there is an urgent need for the U.S. to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to prepare for the impacts of climate change. 

As the Senate decides what to do about global warming, come see the giant ice sculpture and watch the coordinated smear campaign by climate deniers melt away.

WHAT:  An ice sculpture to be unveiled outside the U.S. Senate.

WHEN:  Thursday, July 15, 2010

TIME: 12 Noon ( Sculpture will be unveiled at noon and will be out all afternoon)
