WAR BETWEEN COAL PROPONENTS AND CLIMATE EXTREMISTS UNAVOIDABLE
December 18, 2013: “Coal Must Embrace All-Out Battle with Eco-Bullies - Meekly accepting blame for climate change dooms the industry and the greater economy”, by Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris, published by Los Angeles-based PJ Media (5 million separate readers a month).
“A reasonable person would expect coal to proclaim their industry’s innocence of the climate crime of which they stand accused, using the overwhelming evidence that global warming fears are greatly exaggerated.
“But, no, with only a few exceptions, coal leaders plead guilty to producing “climate-change emissions,”…they throw themselves at the mercy of the court of public opinion, complaining that hundreds of thousands of coal sector workers will lose their jobs and that prices will skyrocket as the nation’s least expensive source of electricity is turned off.
“The relaxed response from climate activists to these messages tells us that this approach has no chance of working.”
Inexpensive, abundant coal provides about 40% of America's electricity.If US President Barack Obama's 'war on coal' succeeds in killing the industry, hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost, prices will skyrocket, and thecountry's energy security will be compromised. All this is in the name of'stopping dangerous global warming' that is not happening but Obama maintains threatens us all (image courtesy of http://www.globalwarming.org).
PREPARE FOR EXTREME WEATHER, DON'T VAINLY TRY TO STOP IT
December 17, 2013: "Changing weather is science fiction'", by Tom Harris, ICSC Executive Director, and Dr. Madhav Khandekar, ICSC Science Advisory Board member and former Environment Canada Research Scientist, published in the Tulsa Beacon, Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.
"The right response is to help vulnerable people adapt to extreme weather events, to the degree we can afford. The idea that we cause them and can prevent them from occurring is science fiction."
ICSC NEWS RELEASE: AGU, SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON EXTREME WEATHER
Attention: News Editors and Science, Environment, Energy, and Political Reporters
AMERICAN GEOPHYSICAL UNION MUST SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT ABOUT EXTREME WEATHER AND CLIMATE CHANGE
This week's AGU conference an ideal chance to educate people about the causes of extreme weather
Ottawa, Canada, December 10, 2013: "We invite theAmerican Geophysical Union [AGU] to join with us in helping educate the public about extreme weather and climate change,” said Tom Harris, executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition. “For too long, the public, media, and government have been misled into believing that climate change is causing increased extreme weather. At their massiveFall Meetingnow taking place in San Francisco, the AGU should start a public education campaign aimed at revealing what science really says about this topic.”
FORMER ENVIRONMENT CANADA RESEARCH SCIENTIST DEBUNKS EXTREME WEATHER/CLIMATE CHANGE LINK
December 8, 2013: ICSC Science Advisory Board member Dr. Madhav Khandekar, former Environment Canada Research Scientist, explains that recent extreme weather is nothing unusual and undoubtedly due to natural cycles. Broadcast across Canada on The Source, with Ezra Levant on Sun Media Television.
Dr. Khandekar explains the science that shows there is no correlation between extreme weather events and climate change.
"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.
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."
