Stephan Savarese, research engineer. President of Sauvons le Climat, Saving Our Planet: Whatever the reasons for climate change, it's here and it's big. I name it Climate Transition because Climate Change has become a political issue. Showing pictures of isolated cold episodes in narrow regions of the world is picturesque, but cannot change the accurate, revised, precise statistics, which show that global warming has accelerated (at least) fourfold within the past fifty years, at a rate surprisingly fast and chaotic. As a consequence, ocean level rise, which had stabilized over the past five millennia at 1 mm/year, is on the verge of crossing the 5 mm/year mark, due to accelerated sea water thermal expansion, plus continental glacier melting.

Jean-Luc Salanave, Le développementfulgurantdes énergies solaire, photovoltaïque etéolienne,en ce débutde XXIe siècle, nous faitaussi expérimenter leurs inconvénients.La technologie en solutionnera bon nombre,mais intermittence etencombrementdemeurerontdes défauts majeurs de ces deux sources d’énergie tantqu’il y aura des absences de soleil ou de vent,etque 10 milliards de terriens auront besoin de surfaces habitables,cultivables etde forêts. Conclusion Pour satisfaire ses besoins énergétiques,l’homme ne disposera de rien d’autre que des trois seules forces fondamentales que la nature metà sa disposition :la force électromagnétique (énergies chimiques,combustibles fossiles,biomasse,photovoltaïque,…),la gravitation (énergies hydraulique,éolienne,inertielle,potentielle …) et les forces nucléaires (radioactivité,fission,fusion).

Barack Obama, President of the United States: "Few challenges facing America and the world are more urgent than combating climate change. The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear." "With all due respect Mr. President, that is not true." We, the undersigned scientists, maintain that the case for alarm regarding climate change is grossly overstated.
