Douglas Cotton, physicist: There is no valid physics which links carbon dioxide with the (natural) warming of Earth, Venus or any planet. Solar radiation mostly passes straight through the thin transparent surface layer of the oceans, whilst "back radiation" does not penetrate at all. Yet it is assumed that the total flux of both can be stuck into Stefan-Boltzmann calculations in order to "explain" the observed mean surface temperature. Editor, John Shanahan's Note: Greta Thunberg, Al Gore, President Obama's Science Advisor - John Holdren, Michael Mann, James Hansen, Pope Francis, their peers, followers and many others are very wrong. Stopping use of fossil fuels would be a disaster as bad as global war. Physicist Douglas Cotton explains climate science and what energy we should use very well.

Michael Shellenberger, Environmental Progress: There is a recurring puzzle in the history of the environmental movement: Why do green activists keep promoting policies that are harmful not only to humans but also to the environment? Michael Shellenberger is determined to solve this problem, and he is singularly well qualified. Mr. Shellenberger wants to woo them to an alternative faith that he calls environmental humanism, which is committed to the “transcendent moral purpose of universal human flourishing and environmental progress.” It is something to be leader of a new faith.

William Happer, physicist, Princeton University, USA, W A Wijngaarden, physicist, York University, Canada: Excerpts from summary at end of paper: [2] Carbon exchanges between the atmosphere, land and oceans are very complicated and involve a great deal of biology. [3] Without human emissions, the equilibrium distribuion does not change with time. In Ed’s equilibrium, about 1.45% of carbon is airborne, 90.70% is in the deep ocean, 2.21% is in the shallow ocean and 5.64% is on the land. [4] The atmospheric fraction has remained close to 280 ppm from about the year 1000 to 1850. [5] Ed’s rate equations conserve carbon. If there are no human emissions, carbon lost from one reservoir flows to the other three so the total carbon content of all reservoirs remains constant. If there are human emissions, they equal the total increase of carbon in all four reservoirs. [10] It is hard to understand why, after some 800 years of apparent equilibrium the deep ocean might start to outgas CO2 more rapidly around the year 1850. [11] An increase of land emissons due to human activities sounds more reasonable than an increase of ocean emissions.
