John Shanahan, Civil Engineer, Editor of allaboutenergy.net and efn-usa.org: The Nuclear Energy Institute website makes statements suggesting that carbon dioxide from fossil fuels is causing catastrophic man-made climate change. NEI should avoid these claims and work on removing - resolving hurdles that are holding nuclear back. China and Russia are moving forward with nuclear as fast as possible with less costs. The situation in Europe and North America is a shame.

IAEA, International Atomic Energy Agency, Michael Madsen - Office of Public Information and Communication: Hosted jointly by the IAEA Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications and Department of Nuclear Energy, the event brought speakers together to discuss the biggest culprit of climate change: carbon. Going on down through many nuclear organizations in Europe and North America, the nuclear industry repeats the warning of catastrophic man-made global warming and man-made ocean acidification. Some day these nuclear experts and advocate will have to face the fact that these events they are concerned about are caused mostly by nature. Their expertise and motives will be questioned. Instead, they should be working to solve the problems that are holding nuclear back, even killing it.

Pierre Gosselin, mechanical and civil engineer, advocate for sound use of the best energy sources: If colors work well to drive home a point, then let’s use them to illustrate global temperature trends going back 2000 years. So, what happens when we create a stripe chart going back 2000 years: Suddenly all the drama disappears and the propaganda is exposed for what it is. Today’s warming is in reality nothing new. So the next time someone shows you this cherry-picked, only back to 1850, propaganda stripe chart, then show them what it looks like going back 2000 years.

Richard Lindzen is an atmospheric physicist, Emeritus Professor at MIT. From 1983 until his retirement in 2013 he was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at MIT: Here are two statements that are completely agreed on by the IPCC. It is crucial to be aware of their implications. 1. A doubling of CO2, by itself, contributes only about 1C to greenhouse warming. 2. If one assumes all warming over the past century is due to anthropogenic greenhouse forcing, then the derived sensitivity of the climate to a doubling of CO2 is less than 1C. The notion that alarming warming is ‘settled science’ should be offensive to any sentient individual, though to be sure, the above is hardly emphasized by the IPCC.
