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.

John Robson: For the past 2.5 million years the Earth has been unusually cold, with repeated glaciations whose periodic advances and retreats science cannot model or predict. In fact we are still in an “ice age” today, with significant polar ice, though in a relatively warmer “interglacial”. Fortunately. Civilization would be impossible without the warming that started suddenly 12,000 years ago, and would become very difficult if the glaciers began another sudden advance. If the Earth actually is now warming, relative to 15,000 years ago or indeed the “Little Ice Age” from the end of the Middle Ages into the mid-19th century, it would be neither surprising nor man-made.

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.

Revolutionary tells the story of biochemist Michael Behe and the revolution he helped spark twenty years ago with his path-breaking book Darwin’s Black Box, inspiring a new generation of scientists and thinkers who are challenging Darwinian orthodoxy and discovering powerful evidence throughout nature of intelligent design. Learn what led Behe to his discoveries, how those opposed to his ideas tried to kill them in court, how Behe’s ideas have been vindicated by science during the past decade, and how his ideas have led to a growing movement for a new approach to biology. Filmed in the United States and Europe, Revolutionary features new interviews with biologists Michael Behe, Douglas Axe, and Scott Minnich, and with philosophers of science Stephen Meyer and Paul Nelson, among others. After seeing the film, you will want to join the revolution!
