ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a conference on global warming which took place in Villach, Austria, 20 year ago. The conference, say the people who were there, was the catalyst for the formation of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the gatekeeper for the science of climate change, and led to the Kyoto protocol. Everyone who took part agrees that the driving force was Jim Bruce, a leading climate scientist in the Canadian government and the meeting's chairman. But more important, perhaps, was the fact that the international group of scientists met in Villach as individuals, rather than as representatives of governments or large scientific bodies.
