Bruno Comby offers his perspective on the 2016 US and 2017 French presidential elections. Massive amounts of clean, reliable energy are needed to support the world population and help protect the environment, maintain wildlife habitat and preserve biodiversity.

Obama's own supporters were surprised to see this rare event of a frozen ocean at Woods Hole. Their website says: "I'm with science. Climate Change is no Hoax." Shouldn't these scientists and the White House check the weather by looking out the window? Is carbon dioxide one of the essential molecules of life? Is it a pollutant at anywhere near today's concentrations?
