May 26, 2015: "Winters not Summers Increase Mortality and Stress the Economy," by Joseph D'Aleo, Certified Consultant Meteorologist and AMS Fellow, and Allan MacRae, M.Eng. (Geotechnical Engineering), published by Watts Up With That? (WUWT), "the world's most viewed site on global warming and climate change," Chico, California.
Global warming alarmists continue to over-emphasize the danger of heat and ignore cold in their papers and in stories for the media. The danger associated with this misdirection is that cold weather kills many more people that hot weather.
This conclusion is clearly supported by many studies of populations in a wide range of climates. Examples are provided below from a study of thirteen countries, as well as national studies from the United Kingdom, the USA, Canada and Australia.
Furthermore, this conclusion is not new, but has been known for many decades.
Cold weather kills 20 times as many people as hot weather, according to an international study analyzing over 74 million deaths in 384 locations across 13 countries. The findings were published in The Lancet.

May 13, 2015: ICSC Executive Director was attacked on May 12th via an error-riddle, fallacious article on the Daily Kos Website, “Facing the Facts and Fictions of the Climate Change Deniers”, by Hawaii-based Judah Freed, “a journalist, book publishing coach, life coach, energy healer, and visions quest guide” (ref. his Facebook page). Freed's article is apparently a plea to newspaper editors to not publish ICSC's submissions.
Harris wrote a detailed response which was posted to the site by an ICSC supporter since Daily Kos would not allow Harris to respond. A screen capture of the whole page on which Harris' response appeared may be seen here (click once to expand to readable text). Daily Kos quickly deleted the response from Harris. ICSC has created an easier to read version of Harris' response here.
May 2, 2015: "Tell Pope Francis: Global Warming Is Not a Crisis!": Climate realist event in Rome, Italy, the day before the Vatican's climate change conference.
The Heartland Institute held a "prebuttal" press conference just outside Vatican City in Rome on April 27, 2015, a day before The Pontifical Academy of Sciences of the Roman Catholic Church's workshop on global warming.
The following website provides articles and links about global warming and the workshop, so you can tell Pope Francis: Global warming is not a crisis!:

April 14, 2015: "The PCs must stop promoting the climate scare - Wynne’s climate plans boosted by her opponents’ support of the underlying excuse for cap and trade," by ICSC Executive Director, Tom Harris, published in Canada Free Press, Toronto, Ontario.
"Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives and many of our industry leaders are unwittingly among Premier Wynne’s greatest allies in her imposition of ‘carbon pricing.’ While their complaints about massive costs and job losses are correct, they undermine their own position and help that of Wynne by accepting, even promoting, the foundation of the Liberals’ plans: the premise that we can control Earth’s climate merely by adjusting our CO2 emissions."

March 18, 2015: The Ontario government's "Public Summary" at https://www.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/climate-change-consultation#summarySection about the town hall held in Ottawa concerning their Climate Change Discussion Paper 2015 totally omits reference to public disagreement with their science. A sample of that disagreement appears in the YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdwW_qoYuRI.
Here is the yet unanswered letter about this oversight to the Ministry of Environment representative who led the hearing.UPDATE: Read the important paper, "Ideology or Evidence – Asking Questions About Ontario’s Climate Change Policy Discussion Paper," prepared by Friends of Science.

“The Heartland Institute stands four-square behind Willie Soon. He’s a brilliant and courageous scientist devoted entirely to pursuing scientific knowledge. His critics are all ethically challenged and mental midgets by comparison. We plan to continue to work with Willie on future editions of Climate Change Reconsidered and feature him at future International Conferences on Climate Change, including the next one, the tenth, scheduled to take place in June in Washington, DC.”
— Joseph L. Bast, president, The Heartland Institute

February 11, 2015: The Institute of Public Affairs is proud to publish Climate Change: The Facts 2014, featuring 22 chapters on the science, politics and economics of the climate change debate. Climate Change: The Facts 2014 features the world’s leading experts and commentators on climate change. Highlights of Climate Change: The Facts 2014 include:
Ian Plimer draws on the geological record to dismiss the possibility that human emissions of carbon dioxide will lead to catastrophic consequences for the planet. Patrick Michaels demonstrates the growing chasm between the predictions of the IPCC and the real world temperature results. Richard Lindzen shows the climate is less sensitive to increases in greenhouse gases than previously thought and argues that a warmer world would have a similar weather variability to today. Willie Soon discusses the often unremarked role of the sun in climate variability. Robert Carter explains why the natural variability of the climate is far greater than any human component. John Abbot and Jennifer Marohasy demonstrate how little success climate models have in predicting important information such as rainfall.
