Michel Gay: Pour ceux qui en doutaient encore, et malgré les milliards d'euros engloutis annuellement à perte dans les éoliennes et le solaire, le nucléaire est bien "le" cœur de la transition énergétique, si cette dernière consiste bien à aller vers un monde moins consommateur de combustibles fossiles, et donc moins émetteur de gaz à effet de serre.

Michael Shellenberger, Environmental Progress: Let’s look at 2016. Germany installed four percent more solar panels but generated three percent less electricity from solar. Even when I’m in meetings with energy experts and I ask people if they can make a guess as to why they think that is, and you’d be shocked by how many energy experts have no idea. The reason is just that it wasn’t very sunny last year in Germany. Well, that probably meant that it was windier, right? Because if it’s not as sunny then maybe there’s more wind and those things can balance each other out? In truth, Germany installed 11 percent more wind turbines in 2016 but got two percent less of its electricity from wind. Same story. Just not very windy. Every major journal that looks at it concludes that nuclear is the safest way to make reliable electricity.

Michael Shellenberger, Environmental Progress: This presents video talks by Michael Shellenberger, Founder - President of Environmental Progress. EP focuses on realistic, practical energy equality for people around the world as well as improving/protecting the environment through better living for people, better practices in all areas of the food industry, manufacturing, harvesting from oceans, preservation of wildlife habitat and wilderness. A significant strength of Environmental Progress is that they look for areas where their assumptions and policies can be improved and acknowledge mistakes. Many organizations settle on policies without being open to better ideas.

Benny Peiser, Global Warming Policy Forum: Germany’s utopian dream of transforming itself into the world’s green powerhouse is collapsing as its political and media establishment is mugged by reality. The country’s climate obsession has turned into one of the country’s biggest political and economic handicaps, making Germany almost ungovernable.
