Tom Harris is executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition and an advisor for environmental policy at The Heartland Institute. He has 30 years’ experience working as a mechanical engineer and project manager, science and technology communications professional and media and science and technology advisor to a former Opposition Senior Environment Critic. For the past 10 years, Harris has been working intensively with a growing team of independent scientists and engineers to promote a sensible approach to a range of energy and environmental topics, climate change in particular. His main focus has been the highly controversial science underlying these issues.
In December 2007, Harris and Professor Bob Carter of James Cook University in Australia coordinated the open letter from 100 top climate experts to the Secretary General of United Nations during the Bali Climate Change Conference.
