The Florida Republican Women's Network Summit takes place this weekend in Orlando.

The keynote speaker on Saturday night will be Dr. Patrick Michaels, a professor of environmental studies at the University of Virginia, and a noted critic of the human effect on global warming.

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy has written to the GOP group, urging them to cancel Michaels' speech.

Melissa Meehan, with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, says her group is angry about the inclusion of Michaels as the keynote speaker.

WMNF attempted to contact officials with the Network, however, we did not hear back from President Ann Voss by airtime.
