Richard McPherson, electrical power and grid security expert. He had a career in many aspects of nuclear power and is involved with experts working for the most logical next big development for the United States followed by for the Free World. This will contribute to peace and prosperity and free the logjam holding nuclear power back. In the 1930 - 40s, the world was ill prepared for Hitler and the Nazis and for Imperial Japan. That situation should never be allowed to happen again. To accomplish that, power and prosperity must thrive in free markets around the world. People must have ample incentive to work and be creative. We must respect the environment, nature and bio-diversity. We must get away from extreme fear campaigns and the power they gather.

Paul Driessen, senior policy advisor for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: Climate cultists reckon the wholesale environmental destruction wreaked by the wind and solar industries is all for the good of planet. It’s an argument that holds all the logic of amputating an entire leg to prevent a septic toe from doing any further damage, when a dose of penicillin would do the trick. .. .. “We had to destroy the village in order to save it.” The infamous Vietnam era quotation may or may not have been uttered by an anonymous US Army major. It may have been misquoted, revised, apocryphal or invented. But it quickly morphed into an anti-war mantra that reflected the frustrations many felt.

Michael Shellenberger, Environmental Progress: If the Democrats’ $2 trillion climate proposal passes into law, a lot of very powerful people stand to make a lot of money, from winning tender for industrial projects such as building wind turbines and transmission lines all the way to the outright cash payments that we saw during Obama’s green stimulus. If the US keeps closing nuclear plants and fails to build new ones, we will cede our ability to compete with the Russians and Chinese in building new nuclear plants which will undermine national security, and good industrial jobs at home. The threat posed by America’s illiberal, nuclear-building rivals will, like the crisis facing renewables, continue to grow, regardless of whether Democrats succeed in shutting me up.

Raphael Telis, research physicist at BNL and CERN: One of the most widespread myths is that wind and solar power sources are inexhaustible because the wind will always blow and the sun will always shine. This statement assumes that all that is needed for energy is wind and sunshine, which isn’t the case. Wind and sunshine don't equal wind power and solar power. The transformation into renewable energy requires minerals, metals and fossil fuels, which are non-renewable resources. Thus, wind turbines and solar panels are largely made from non-renewable resources. Take a note: "renewable energy" isn't a technical or scientific term but a marketing term.
