Patrick Moore is the Chair of the Energy, Ecology and Prosperity program at the Frontier Centre for Public Policy. He has been a leader in the international environmental field for over 40 years. Dr. Moore is a Co-Founder of Greenpeace and served for nine years as President of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a Director of Greenpeace International. The pH of the world’s oceans varies from 7.5 to 8.3, well into the alkaline scale. It is therefore incorrect to state the oceans are acidic or that they will become acidic under any conceivable scenario. The term “acidification” is used to imply that the oceans will actually become acidic. It is perhaps just short of propaganda to use the language in this manner.
Andrew Kenny, nuclear engineer, provides a very interesting and easy to read report on the question of what influence the use of fossil fuels and CO2 they produce have on Earth's climate. Fossil fuels have brought immeasurable benefits to people in the First World and some benefits to people in the Second World. The Third World is mostly still waiting to reap these benefits. People hear alarms about CO2 from fossil fuel from the President of the United States, Barack Obama, and the Head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, etc. To stop use of fossil fuels would be disastrous. Andrew Kenny's article is very worth reading.
Brian Fraga writes in the National Catholic Register on Man-Made Climate Change from a Catholic Perspective. The conclusions are that use of fossil fuels is causing serious global warming and almost every other serious negative change in the climate, but none of the good changes. The indication is that the leaders of the Catholic Church want the world to stop using fossil fuels or implement programs that would probably not keep Earth's climate where it is today or was fifty or one hundred years ago. The programs would transfer wealth from First World countries who are using fossil fuels to Third World countries who will continue to use fossil fuels. Without fossil fuels, Third World countries will be worse off than they are today.
Jay Ambrose describes the situation between those who claim that use of fossil fuels is and will cause catastrophic man-made global warming and insist that the world stop using fossil fuels in the next few decades and many scientists who based on scientific studies and analysis are convinced that the world is a better place because of use of fossil fuels and the CO2 given off by their use is NOT going to cause a problem. Maybe some warming. Or the next turn in the Earth's climate could be cooling from natural processes, which will be serious for many in today's population.
