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.
Ulrich Weber, Geophysiker: Vor 500 Jahren hatte sich ein einzelner Mann ganz allein gegen obrigkeitshörige Angstgläubigkeit und religiösen Ablasswahn gestellt und alle waren hinter ihm her. Auch im Lutherjahr 2017 gehören die Schlagzeilen der freiwillig gleichgeschalteten Mainstreammedien den selbstkasteienden Auto- und Klimarassisten, die Brot und Wasser predigen und ihre Kaviarhäppchen mit einem Gläschen Champagner herunterspülen. Und in einer wohl inszenierten mittelalterlichen Conquista im Namen der Weltklimareligion sind ihnen die gesamte Weltbevölkerung, die Weltwirtschaft und 195 Nationalstaaten dieser Erde inzwischen zur Beute gefallen.
Paul Driessen reviews Pope Francis' address to the US Congress and encyclical, Laudato Si ("Praise Be to You" concerning use of fossil fuels, the topic of catastrophic man-made global warming, poverty and the environment. Driessen concludes, "Absolutely, let us have a real, open, robust conversation about these issues. And let us include everyone in it, because the energy, environmental and human rights challenges concern and affect us all."
Ed Berry, Ph.D. in Physics, presents a short, clear, easy to understand proof with references to works by some of the world's top scientists in physics and atmospheric physics that CO2 from fossil fuels is not going to cause serious man made climate change. For oposite views, go to tab ENVIRONMENT, sub tab Man-Made Global Warming - Sounding the Alarm. One Alarmist paper goes so far as to declare that CO2 from use of fossil fuels in the 20th and 21st Centuries will cancel the next two ice ages spanning hundreds of thousands of years.!!!
Roy Spencer, Ph.D. in meteorology, Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama. “Global warming” refers to the global-average temperature increase that has been observed over the last one hundred years or more. Because small, chaotic fluctuations in atmospheric and oceanic circulation systems can cause small changes in global average cloudiness, this is all that is necessary to cause climate change. Climate change — it happens, with or without our help.
Bryan Leyland, power systems design, mechanical engineer: Most people who believe in dangerous man-made global warming appear to be confident that the world will soon start to warm again and in 20 or 30 years time the predictions of the climate models will have proved to be correct. Many also tell us that we will have reached the 2° "tipping point" where, they claim, irreversible climatic changes will occur by 2050.
Uli Weber - geophysicist, notrickszone.com, P. Gosselin: Since the G7-Summit (2015) and the Climate Summit COP21 in Paris (2015), the political aim of many governments is to stop use of fossil fuels by 2100 and supposedly save our planet from anthropogenic global warming (AGW). The AGW-paradigm is allegedly supported by 97% of all climate scientists worldwide. Global decarbonisation has even been recommended by some religious leaders. .. .. Should we abandon our excellent living-standards based on fossil fuels and accept these doomsday predictions?
Ed Berry, physicist: Here we are on January 26, 2016. Do you feel the heat? Do you see the clouds are gone and the sky is glowing red? Ten years ago, on January 25, 2006, Al Gore stood before his Sundance audience at the screening of his “An Inconvenient Truth.” Al Gore waved his quivering finger in the air and told his audience that unless the world takes drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases within the next 10 years, we will reach a point of no return.
Kelvin Kemm, South Africa: Perhaps the answer can be found in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. “There's no use trying,” Alice said. “One can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Paul Driessen. Pope Francis’s Laudato Si encyclical is often eloquent, always passionate, but too often encumbered by platitudes and simply erroneous thinking. The pope believes climate change is largely manmade and driven by a capitalist economic system that exploits the poor. I believe Pope Francis went wrong – free market capitalism and hydrocarbon energy remain the best way forward at this time.
