International Climate Science Coalition Canada
With the wealth
of climate disinformation and misinformation out there, I am happy to find commentary by a Canadian based group that I have familiarity with. I have followed Mr. Harris and some of his colleagues for years and find their insights useful in sorting fact from
the climate fiction fed to us by people who do not disclose their conflicts of interest.
As usual, I leave it to you to decide how you use the information you find on sites I write about.
