Pat Boone, Tom Tamarkin: This letter to Pope Francis is about Anthropogenic Global Warming and our energy choices: wind, solar, fossil fuels, and nuclear with focus on nuclear fusion. Tragically the AGW concept has created corrupt conditions. This represents the worst side of economic imperialism: monies being taken from the people and redistributed to governments, institutions and corporations based on politics as opposed to science and solid economics.
Michael Hart, emeritus professor of international affairs at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada: This article is a book review/interview about the extent to which modern health, safety, and environmental regulatory activity relies on poor science advanced by activists to push an agenda. The interview is on www.lifesitenews.com. It was distributed by Calvin Beisner at the Cornwall Alliance.
The Week That Was, Ken Haapala, Fred Singer, Donald Rapp: “The biggest problem today (I think) in climate matters is that we, as a community of scientists, have succumbed to social pressures and have thereby given up on the scientific method, .. .. .. And so we have become relegated to something akin to the trench warfare that prevailed in WW-I when opposing forces were stalemated into probing attacks that went nowhere."
www.geocraft.com - Do rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations cause increasing global temperatures, or could it be the other way around? This is one of the questions being debated today. Interestingly, CO2 lags an average of about 800 years behind the temperature changes-- confirming that CO2 is not the cause of the temperature increases. One thing is certain-- earth's climate has been warming and cooling on it's own for at least the last 400,000 years, as the data below show.
Peter Wood, National Academy of Scholars: Science promotes the so-called consensus model of climate change and excludes any contrary views. This issue has become so polarized and polarizing that it is difficult to bring up, but at some point the scientific community will have to reckon with the dramatic discrepancies between current climate models and substantial parts of the empirical record.
Larry Bell: "Climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth." - IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer. The larger issue has to do with just how many of those who stoke the global warming alarm fires have real confidence in that “science.” So let’s briefly review just a few candid comments that some of them have offered on this topic.
Paul Dorian, Meteorologist at Vencore reports that in early June, 2016 the sun had no sun spots. He explains the general significance for climate on Earth when there are prolonged periods of no sun spots. The sun is the dominant influence on Earth's climate, no carbon dioxide from use of fossil fuels.
John Shanahan, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy - USA explains the purpose of presenting all sides of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic (man-made) Global Warming, CAGW, / Climate Change debate along with comments by scientists on all sides of this discussion. Support for nuclear energy must be by sound science, i.e. following the Scientific Method. One of the sides in the CAGW debate is not following the Scientific Method. The readers of the efn-usa.org website can decide for themselves.
Katie Mohr, manufacturing.net - This report shows projected world energy use for coal, oil, natural gas, renewables, hydro and nuclear out to 2035 with modest growth for nuclear power. The intense debate of catastrophic man-made global warming has to face reality and follow the Scientific Method. The predicted catastrophes of global warming are man-made. One glance at these forecasts for fossil fuels shows that these levels of energy use can continue only with fossil fuels. Nuclear must grow and be well managed.
Patrick Moore, Ph.D. in Ecology, is a founding member of Greenpeace, who turned realist. "I love nature and people are part of nature - all people and all living things. I believe in one human family. All watersheds are connected. Environmentalism must be beyond nationalism, politics and ideology."
