Tom Harris is executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition
The International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC) is a non-partisan group of independent scientists, economists, and energy and policy experts formed in 2008 to promote better understanding of climate science and policy worldwide. The ICSC aims to help create an environment in which a more rational, open discussion about climate issues emerges, thereby moving the debate away from implementation of costly and ineffectual “climate control” measures. ICSC encourages assisting vulnerable peoples to adapt to climate variability and continuing scientific research into the causes and impacts of climate change.
Mr. Harris lives and works in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He has 30 years’ experience as a mechanical engineer/project manager, science and technology communications professional, and technical trainer. He was science and technology advisor to a former Opposition senior environment critic in Canada’s Parliament. From 2006 to 2008, he was executive director of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project (Canada).
In December 2007, Harris and Dr. Robert Carter, formerly of James Cook University in Australia, coordinated an open letter from 100 top climate experts to the Secretary General of United Nations during the Bali Climate Change Conference.
From 2009 to 2011 (four sessions), he taught a total of 1,500 students “Climate Change: an Earth Sciences Perspective,” a second-year course in the Faculty of Sciences at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
Mr. Harris is perhaps the most frequently cited and interviewed critic of exaggeration and alarmism in the global warming debate, appearing thousands of times on online news forums and being regularly published in newspapers in Canada and the U.S. and occasionally in Australia, New Zealand, the U.K., and other countries. He is often interviewed on radio and TV. A few of many recent media appearances include the following:
Patrick Wood, President of “Citizens For Free Speech”
Everyone in the truth movement by now knows about the censorship on social media where the tech giants, Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are trying to silence dissent by demonetizing, shadow-banning and even removing content. This is all part of the Deep State’s attempt at social engineering by forcing the population to fit their prescribed agenda. Hiring left-wing whacko
The main reason the First Amendment contained free speech and freedom of the press clauses was so that journalists could openly criticize government without fear of retribution… now the press IS the government. Like Pravda in Russia, the MSM receives its scripts from the government, to the point where the narratives provided the people are virtually disseminated verbatim. But you already know all of this…
Sites such as Steemit and Minds.org are striving to keep the truth narrative alive and with it the unencumbered flow of information. But we need more- there can never be too many sources of the truth. One reason we have #informationwar here on Steemit and Discord is to consolidate sources of information that counter the deceptive MSM narrative. Now author, lecturer and founder of Technocracy News, Patrick Wood, is offering up another alternative social media platform… Citizens for Free Speech is resurrecting the LocalActivist.org website- and they need out help. I’ll post a link to the site so you can read for yourself and see how you can help, whether monetarily, volunteering, or whatever. There are only two sides in this fight- there is no neutral ground. If you don’t take a proactive stand for free speech, don’t complain when they take yours away.
groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and algorithms to detect politically incorrect speech they seek to erase conservative voices calling it “hate speech.”
Facebook has employed censors to decide which sources of news are “suitable for viewing,” using predominately Snopes, a Soros backed organization. Remember, all social engineering is preceded by verbal engineering and the best way to perpetuate a lie is to prohibit people from challenging it. If they win, we will lose a lot more than freedom of speech.
