Eric Jelinski, past president of Environmentalists for Nuclear - Canada, farmer, environmentalist, university lecturer with degrees in mechanical and chemical nuclear engineering: The IPCC is irrelevant and a total waste of time and money. They are scientists each in their own silo, and therefore they should not be called scientists. Real scientists would start with an open mind and apply scientific principles and methods. E.g. having model predictions that are grossly divergent from each other and also divergent from data is sufficient justification to shut down that entire organization ASAP.
U.S. Congress: In August 2019, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a grim update to its economic outlook for the next decade, predicting average national deficits of $1.2 trillion every year through 2029, due in large part to recent budget and border security bills. The CBO report noted that, as one of many repercussions from free-spending policies, federal debt held by the public is projected to reach heights not seen since the 1940s, almost equaling the nation's Gross Domestic Product. This could lead to the devaluation of the Dollar, financial panic in the USA and around the world. Never have politicians been so irresponsible on such a large scale. At the same time, the government has been equally irresponsible in forming sound energy policies. Energy is the only real currency. Others are just paper backed by the word of the government.
Mpiyakhe Dhlamini is a data science researcher at the Free Market Foundation in South Africa: The people of Africa have been subjected to multiple injustices, slights, and violence. The list of things inflicted on Africans is endless and has no modern equivalent, except for Asia in geographical terms and the Jews in ethnic terms. These multiple injustices have been inflicted by both outsiders and Africans themselves against one another.
Construction of nuclear plants will reinvigorate local manufacturing (Kelvin Kemm, Nuclear Africa) South Africa23.May.2019
Kelvin Kemm is a nuclear physicist and Chairman of the South African Nuclear Energy Corporation and Nuclear Africa (Pty) Ltd: One of the main objectives of government is to reinvigorate the local manufacturing sector and one of the ways to achieve that is to forge ahead with the construction of nuclear plants. South Africa has everything it takes to be a world leader in nuclear and we need the scientists and engineers to be the ones driving this. Going ahead with nuclear projects, with experts at the centre of energy planning, will initiate a hive of activity across the entire country.
