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."

Read Mr. Goreham's piece "Apple And Google Pour Billions Down A Green Drain," published in The Daily Caller, Washington DC.
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.
