(Simon Aegerter, Jon Boone, Bruno Comby, Michel Gay, Roger Higgs, Eric Jelinski, John Shanahan, Willie Soon) Canada, France, Switzerland, UK, USA - Man-made global warming, fossil fuels, nuclear power30.Aug.2020
Simon Aegerter, physicist, Jon Boone, analyst-observer of the real world, Bruno Comby, nuclear engineer, Michel Gay, nuclear advocate, Roger Higgs, geologist, Eric Jelinski, chemical-nuclear and mechanical engineer, university lecturer, John Shanahan, civil engineer, Willie Soon, astrophysicist: Discussion on man-made global warming, climate tipping point, fossil fuels, nuclear power. This is a discussion of different thoughts for what lies ahead for Earth's climate and energy sources? Many people in this discussion see a wholesome climate and better living with fossil fuels and nuclear power, if people avoid intense hate, massive stupidity and all-out war. One person is concerned about carbon dioxide from fossil fuels causing serious global warming leading to an irreversible climate tipping point and end of life as we know it today. Others are concerned about a breakdown of personal and economic freedoms and productivity caused by alarmists creating a one-world government with losses of freedom and private ownership. This is already happening with elected officials forcing the stopping of use of fossil fuels and nuclear power and irrationally imposing use of wind and solar energy and central governments taking absolute control of the economy.
(Eric Jelinski, James Conca, John Shanahan) Canada, USofA - What energy mix will North America have in 2100?28.Feb.2020
Eric Jelinski, past president of Environmentalists for Nuclear - Canada, farmer, environmentalist, university lecturer with degrees in mechanical and chemical nuclear engineering: There is no such thing as renewable energy. Could you build a renewable energy system without any support from coal, oil or natural gas? I’d like to see the renewable energy advocates mine, manufacture and transport everything that is needed for wind and solar farms and electrical distribution networks using wind and solar alone. Jim Conca, geologist, science and energy writer for Forbes predicts the 2100 mix will be natural gas and wind. John Shanahan, civil engineer says that natural gas and nuclear is better.
(Bruno Comby, comments by Eric Jelinski, John Shanahan) France, Canada, USofA - Three steps to a zero carbon world10.Feb.2020
Bruno Comby, Nuclear Engineer, Founder - President of Environmentalists for Nuclear (International), EFN, in France presents views on decarbonizing the world and rapid global development of nuclear power. Eric Jelinski, President of EFN Canada and John Shanahan, President of EFN-USA present significant alternate views. Bruno Comby makes closing remarks. This is an example of how these topics are handled constructively in Environmentalists For Nuclear. In many other organizations and discussion groups, these divisive topics are extremely alienating. The world needs to learn to discuss differences instead of going to war with words or bullets.
(Ed Berry, Simon Aegerter, Eric Jelinski, Douglas Lightfoot) Canada, Switzerland, USofA - The Physics Model Carbon Cycle for Human CO2 - with comments08.Jan.2020
Ed Berry, physicist and climate scientist: The scientific basis for the effect of human carbon dioxide on atmospheric carbon dioxide rests upon correctly calculating the human carbon cycle. This paper uses the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) carbon-cycle data and allows IPCC’s assumption that the CO2 level in 1750 was 280 ppm. Human emissions through 2019 have added only 31 ppm to atmospheric CO2 while nature has added 100 ppm. If human emissions were stopped in 2020, then by 2100 only 8 ppm of human CO2 would remain in the atmosphere. Siimon Aegerter, Eric Jelinski and Douglas Lightfoot offer comments from different perspectives.
