Pierre Gosselin, mechanical and civil engineer, advocate for sound use of the best energy sources: German online weekly FOCUS reports how cuts by wind energy giant Enercon will lead to 3000 layoffs. According to Enercon chief executive Hans-Dieter Kettwig, “politicians have pulled the plug on wind energy.”
John Shanahan, Civil Engineer, Editor of allaboutenergy.net and efn-usa.org: Individuals with science degrees (John Holdren, Tom Cochran, Michael Mann, Jim Hansen, etc.), organizations with science in their name (national academies of science), universities, organizations with misleading names (Natural Resources Defense Council), actors, main stream media, and politicians have been working since the 1970s to have the world stop using fossil fuels. This would set humanity back to lifestyles and life expectancies of the Middle Ages or at least back to the 1800s when there was much slavery and horse manure.
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.
