Viv Forbes, Executive Director of the Saltbush Club which opposes the war on carbon energy, opposes real pollution, and promotes the rational and sustainable use of carbon energy and carbon food. The Greens in Australia work to close a coal mine because it may disturb some birds. The same Greens support wind turbines that grind up precious wedge-tail eagles, falcons, kites, hawks and other birds as well as uncounted bats. As long as Democracies allow extreme Green policies to rule the energy sector, the free world will fall to dictator governments.
Peter Heller, physicist: Climate protection has been high on the political agenda for three decades. In Germany, voters are no longer resisting a parliament in which an oversized coalition of the Union, the SPD, the Greens, the Left, and the FDP sunk the nation's wealth into planned energy, transport, and agricultural activities. People no longer argue about whether to ban Germans from flying or driving, but only how to succeed most effectively. It is no longer necessary to ask whether de-industrialization is wise, but only whether it can be speeded up with a carbon tax, with a regime of steadily tightened limit values or better with a forced increase in prices and emission rights.
David Attenborough, nature and climate change documentary producer. Andrew Montford, writer for reaction.life: “Tragedy porn” is now a standard green propaganda technique. First of all you need a victim. Animals – preferably fluffy ones, and preferably with large eyes – are ideal, but people will do at a pinch. Then you have to film them in the process of dying or otherwise suffering. A presenter or scientist needs to be on hand to describe the events, preferably choking away their tears. Then you blame global warming.
John Eidson, electrical engineer: Despite what the people who try to frighten kids say, it doesn’t look like polar bears are being wiped out by anything. They’ve been around for a long, long time, including many periods when Earth was much warmer than it is today. These big white bears are resilient animals that have always known how to figure things out when there’s less ice.
