Sebastian Luening, paleogeologist: Leben wir in einer klimatisch außergewöhnlichen Zeit, die alles Vorherige in den Schatten stellt? Dafür muss man in die klimatische Vergangenheit schauen. Anhänger des Klimaalarmismus beschränken sich dabei auf die letzte 150 Jahre und kommen zu dem vorschnellen aber persönlich erhebenden Schluss: Ja, wir sind Teil einer Entwicklung die es noch nie gegegben hat, und wir sind auch noch selber Schuld daran.

Andrzej Strupczewski, Chairman of Nuclear Safety Commission at National Centre for Nuclear Research, Poland: Fear is dominating practically every discussion on consequences of the Fukushima accident. The largest earthquake ever noted in Japan’s history followed by a disastrous tsunami hit on March 11, 2011. Both these calamites destroyed the entire province, moved Japan isles by 4 metres (!) and killed almost 20,000 people. Reports of UN agencies (including World Health Organization and the UNSCEAR Scientific Committee) unanimously state that no health consequences have been or will ever be detected – even within Fukushima neighbourhoods most exposed to the radiation.
