COAL LEADERS MUST DEFEND SECTOR AGAINST BAD CLIMATE SCIENCE
November 27, 2013: "Coal should be defended with science", by Tom Harris, ICSC Executive Director, published in the Tulsa Beacon, Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.
"Spokespeople who are too frightened to defend coal using this, their most effective weapon, must step aside. Then new leaders must be chosen who have the courage to do what needs to be done to win the war for America's energy future."
OBAMA PUTTING COUNTRY AT RISK WITH UNSCIENTIFIC CLIMATE POLICIES
Winter 2013/2014 edition of Range Magazine, Carson City, Nevada, U.S.A.: "Destroying Lives to Pepetuate Failure", by Tom Harris, ICSC Executive Director.
"In an effort to appease loud, well-funded environmentalists, President Barack Obama is conducting an all-out war on coal-fired electricity generation, America's most important power source (over 40% of total electricity generation).
If the climate scare is not soon stopped, all hydocarbon energy sources, oil and gas included, are also at risk...
That his policies threaten the nation's energy security and are triggering higher prices and placing millions of jobs and the economic future of the country at risk seems of little concern to the president.
Editor's note:RANGE magazine is an award-winning publication devoted to the issues that threaten the West, its people, lifestyles, lands and wildlife...RANGE is the leading forum for divergent viewpoints in the search for solutions that will halt the depletion of a national resource, the American cowboy.
INDEPENDENT SCIENTISTS DESTROY LATEST UN CLIMATE REPORT
"The new SPM [Summary for Policy Makers]reveals the IPCC has retreated from at least 11 alarmist claims promulgated in its previous reports or by scientists prominently associated with the IPCC. The SPM also contains at least 13 misleading or untrue statements, and 11 further statements that are phrased in such a way that they mislead readers or misrepresent important aspects of the science."
Editor's note: The IPCC are now in the process of tuning the underlying science report that the SPM is supposed to be summarizing so as to match the SPM that was agreed to line by line by government representatives (as per official UN IPCC procedures - see here). Were this a science-driven process and not a politically-driven one, the Summary would be tuned to match the science report. Regardless, since the draft science report is currently being edited to match the already determined SPM, the above critique of the SPM can be considered as a critique of the UN IPCC Working Group-1 report in general.
LESS US HURRICANES IN OBAMA'S PERIOD AS PRESIDENT THAT IN ANY OTHER ADMINISTRATION EXCEPT ONE
"This week marks the halfway point of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, yet not a single hurricane has formed anywhere in the Atlantic. This year’s lack of hurricanes continues an ongoing, beneficial trend of fewer hurricanes coinciding with moderately warming temperatures as the planet continues its recovery from the Little Ice Age."
ICSC NEWS RELEASE: IMMORAL TO VALUE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE YET TO BE BORN MORE THAN THOSE SUFFERING TODAY
October 23, 2013: "Help people affected by climate change today - Al Gore's "24 Hours of Reality" is backwards", ICSC News Release.
OTTAWA, Oct. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - "Al Gore's approach in 24 Hours of Reality: The Cost of Carbon is backwards," said Tom Harris, executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition. "Instead of focusing on helping vulnerable people prepare for and adapt to climate change in the present, Gore concentrates on trying to stop climate change that may happen decades in the future."

CORAL ISLANDS DO NOT SINK UNLESS RUINED BY LOCAL MISTAKES
October 22, 2013: ICSC Executive Director Tom Harris speaks with Michael Coren on "The Arena" on Sun Media TV broadcast across Canada about the attempt by a Kiribati man to claim climate refugee status in New Zealand. His assertion that Kiribati is sinking because of climate change is totally false.
Nils-Axel Mörner, PhD (Sea Level Changes and climate), Emeritus Professor of Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics, Stockholm University, Sweden explains that the idea that Pacific coral islands are sinking and it is due to emissions of greenhouse gases is nonsense. See his write-up about this topic here.
