Jochem Marotzke, Directo, Climate Research, Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Hamburg, Germany: Aren't you worried about thawing permafrost? No, quantitatively the contribution is relatively small. And as a general rule, it always says: Methane is a much more powerful greenhouse gas than CO₂, which is of course true: Overall, methane has a lower greenhouse gas effect than CO₂. Even if the permafrost thaws, it is uncertain how much of the methane really arrives in the atmosphere. Bacteria can convert methane to CO₂. I'm not worried about the methane. I am not concerned about any catastrophic climate tipping point from use of fossil fuels.
Ed Berry, physicist and climate scientist: All climate alarmism is based upon the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) invalid core theory of climate change: human CO2 emissions caused all the increase in atmospheric CO2 above 280 ppm and since 1750. Here are nine reasons why IPCC’s core theory is invalid.
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.
Sebastian Luening, paleo-geologist at www.kaltesonne.de posted an article about this report by Jim Gordon that describes the tremendous progress China has made in becoming a strong economy and improving the country's infrastructure. China is the world's leader in manufacturing, mining of essential minerals, development and use of fossil fuels and nuclear power. Who can criticize China for helping their people? What countries are keeping up with their own improvements? Why is most of the world falling so far behind? Meanwhile in North America and Europe extremist environmental organizations, catastrophic global warming organizations and their partners in government are imposing energy policies to stop use of fossil fuels and nuclear power and switch to very dilute, variable, not always available wind and solar energy. They teach catastrophic man-made global warming from fossil fuels and encourage wind and solar energy in schools and universities in North America, Europe and Australia!!! . Wahnsinn!!!! Madness!!!! WHY????
