January 20, 2016: Professor Robert (Bob) M. Carter passed away on January 19 after suffering a heart attack the previous week. ICSC will commenerate his life and his accomplishments over the next week with articles and messages that are pouring in from scientists and other admirers across the world. However, in the meantime, one essay about Professor Carter is especially significant, that from his old friend and scientific colleague Dr Gerrit van der Lingen.
Dr. van der Lingen starts:
I have known Bob Carter for a long time, since he was a senior lecturer in the Geology Department of the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. We knew each other as colleagues. At that time, Bob had written about a mid-Oligocene unconformity, which he named the ”Marshall Paraconformity”. This concept evoked some scientific controversy, in which I was involved (Geological Society of New Zealand Newsletter 72, 1986: 26-33). However, it also generated much new research.
Dr. van der Lingen concludes:
Bob was a very generous person. Whenever I asked him for comments or information, he answered promptly. Even after he recently came back from the Paris COP21 conference. I asked him to send me some of his impressions of COP21. I also asked him if he was willing to write a short endorsement to put on the back cover of my (self-publishing) upcoming book “The Fable of a Stable Climate”. He promptly replied on both requests on 27 December. I will treasure his endorsement, which was probably one of his last actions. He will be sorely missed. The best way for us to show our appreciation and admiration for Bob is to continue our fight against the dark forces of man-made climate change activism.

January 12, 2016: ICSC has taken out the following radio ads on Washington DC area radio stations:

Although the voice is different, the text of both radio ads is the same and is as follows:
"President Obama wants to eliminate coal, our cheapest electricity source, in a vain attempt to control Earth's climate. Power costs will soar with millions of jobs lost.
"Science does not support Obama’s actions. Climate will continue to change no matter what we do.
"Moreover, developing countries emit the most carbon dioxide. But under the Paris Agreement they don't need to make any reductions. So even if the UN's science were correct, America's sacrifice would be for nothing."
NOTE: People may ask how it is that developing nations don't need to make any reductions under the Paris Agreement. That is the topic of the ICSC opinion piece published today in The Daily Caller, Washington DC:

PCC lead coordinator, the Reverend Philip Foster said, "Across the world hundreds of billions of pounds are diverted from important humanitarian and other concerns to futile attempts to control the world's climate. As will be demonstrated at the PCC conference, this climate scare has become the greatest scandal in the history of science."
Presenting at the PCC will be leading experts such as:
Dr. Bob Carter, professor and former Head, Department of Earth Sciences, James Cook University, Australia
Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner, Emeritus Professor of Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics, Stockholm University, Sweden
Professor Murry Salby, author of the new textbook, "Physics of the Atmosphere and Climate"
Dr. Patrick Moore, co-founder and ex-Director of Greenpeace
Piers Corbyn, solar physicist, weatheraction.com
Professor Ian Plimer, geologist and paleoclimate expert, University of Adelaide.

November 6, 2015 (Ottawa, Canada): Tom Harris, Executive Director of the International Climate Science Coalition, released the following statement concerning President Barack Obama's rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline project:
"It was a serious strategic mistake for the petroleum industry and the Canadian and Albertan governments to think that they could support the idea that we can control the world’s climate by regulating carbon dioxide emissions yet still have the Keystone XL pipeline approved.
"The fact that even the State Department demonstrated that the pipeline would have had an inconsequential impact on climate made no difference. In their bid to ‘decarbonize’ our economies, climate campaigners drew a line in the sand with Keystone XL. It became a symbol of the movement.
"The only way to have defeated such symbolism would have been for industry and government to tell the truth about climate: The impact of human emissions is almost certainly very small in comparison with that of nature. But they were too frightened to do this and so now the Keystone XL project is the latest casualty of the climate scare."
