(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.
The Société de Calcul Mathématique SA, in France has issued a long in depth white paper on climate change: “The battle against global warming is an absurd, costly and pointless crusade. Models are useful when attempting to review our knowledge, but they should not be used as an aid to decision-making until they have been validated.””
William Happer, Emeritus Professor of Physics, Princeton University: Albert Einstein would almost certainly have been a global warming skeptic if he were alive today. Many distinguished, contemporary scientists are skeptics too. Most importantly, Einstein would have paid close attention to how well the establishment theory of global warming agreed with experiment. He famously stated: “No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right. A single experiment can prove me wrong.” The earth has done the kind of experiment Einstein had in mind. It has warmed at a much slower rate, two or three times slower, than models have predicted. To make matters worse for alarmists, no one knows how much of the relatively small warming is due to increased carbon dioxide.
William Happer, Emeritus Professor of Physics, Steven Koonin, New York University, Center for Urban Science and Progress, Under Secretary for Science at U.S. Depart. of Energy in President Obama's administration, Richard Lindzen Emeritus Professor, MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences: This is a tutorial on man-made global warming, man-made climate change for the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, San Francisco Division. 1) The climate is always changing. 2) Human influences on the climate are a small (1%) perturbation to natural energy flows. 3) It is not possible to tell how much of the modest recent warming can be ascribed to human influences. 4) There have been no detrimental changes observed in the most salient climate variables and today's projections of future changes are highly uncertain.
