Dr. S. Fred Singer, one of the world’s earliest and most credible critics of the theory that global warming is man-made and dangerous, will be recognized with an award for Lifetime Achievement in Climate Science during The Ninth International Conference on Climate Change, July 7–9 in Las Vegas, NV.

Dr. Singer was among the first and is considered to be the most prominent scientist in the world speaking out against global warming alarmism, according to sources. Still active at the age of 90, he is the author, coauthor, and editor of hundreds of scientific articles and many books, including most recently Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts (2014).

Dr. E. Calvin Beisner, founder of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, and Tom Harris, executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition, also will be recognized for their contributions to the global warming debate.

Dr. E. Calvin Beisner's Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation is a network of theologians, pastors, other ministry leaders, scientists, economists, other scholars, and policy experts committed to applying Biblical principles to the twin challenges of economic development for the very poor around the world and wise Earth stewardship.

Tom Harris, B. Eng., M. Eng. (Mech., thermofluids), is executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC), 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. He can be found on Twitter at @TomHarrisCSC.

Debate Should Continue
The debate over the causes and consequences of global warming (or “climate change”) is one of the great controversies of the modern era. While environmental activists and some politicians claim “the debate is over” and call for immediate action to reduce man-made greenhouse gas emissions, others say the science points to only a very small human impact — too small to warrant concern — and the costs of trying to prevent global warming far exceed the benefits.

The Ninth International Conference on Climate Change is expected to attract nearly 1,000 speakers, scientists, and guests willing to question whether man-made global warming is a problem worth addressing. The event has 31 cosponsors and features 60 prominent scientists and economists as keynoters or panelists.
