Andrew Follett, energy and science reporter for The Daily Caller: On the first Earth Day in 1970, famous extreme environmentalists and university professors made profound predictions of global catastrophes to happen in the next 30 years. They didn't happen. Instead the world got a lot better. Heeding predictions by extreme environmentalists is a disaster for the world.
Cameron Petrie, archaeologist: With climate change in our own era becoming increasingly evident, it’s natural to wonder how our ancestors may have dealt with similar environmental circumstances. New research methods and technologies are able to shed light on climate patterns that took place thousands of years ago, giving us a new perspective on how cultures of the time coped with variable and changing environments. An article in Current Anthropology explores the dynamics of adaptation and resilience in the face of a diverse and varied environmental context, using the case study of South Asia’s Indus Civilization (c.3000-1300 BC).
Zbigniew Jaworowski, member of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change: Q: Does anyone have enough courage to just throw into the trash the plans for draconian restrictions on CO2 emissions? A: In the 1960s, a report was created to present a forecast for world development. They looked at the coming period of peace, in which there would be no great war. The group report proposed substitutes for war. One was to create a “fictitious enemy of the world” and have it be a matter of climate. The proposal became criminal in nature.
