Stephan Savarese, research engineer. President of Sauvons le Climat, Saving Our Planet: https://savingourplanet.net: 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.
F. Ward Whicker, Emeritus Professor in Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences, Colorado State University. He has spent a lifetime out in the mountains of Colorado year round and also out in nature around the world. He presents his observations about changes in climate and ecosystems with conclusions that these changes are due to CO2 from use of fossil fuels.
Bill Nye the science guy. Will Happer, Emeritus Professor of Physics, Princeton University: “There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant, but we exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Each of us emits about two pounds of carbon dioxide a day, so are we polluting the planet?” Happer explained. “The 2016 Paris treaty will not do any good. Anyone who looks at the results of doing what the treaty says can see that the effect on the earth’s climate is — even if you take the alarmist computer models trivial — it will not make any difference and yet it will cause enormous harm to many people.”
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.
George Monbiot, author, writer for The Guardian: If our airports are full, there’s an immediate solution. Fly less. The Free Ride campaign has proposed a just means of achieving this: curb demand by taxing frequent flyers, but not those who seldom fly. (In case you’re wondering, I limit my flying to once every three years). But reason has taken flight, the moral compass spins, greed and desire soar towards the stratosphere, and our conscience vanishes in the clouds.
Michael Mann, Professor of Atmospheric Science and Director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University. 400 parts per million, what does it mean? It’s the number of molecules of CO2 for every million molecules of air; 400 of them are now CO2. Just two centuries ago, that number was only 280 parts per million. We have to go several million years back in time to find a point in earth’s history where CO2 was as high as it is now. We believe that with that amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, we commit to what can truly be described as dangerous and irreversible changes in our climate.
Michael Mann, Professor of Atmospheric Science and Director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University and co-author of The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy. The President of the USA should read the landmark “2020” report now published by Mission 2020, a group of experts convened by the former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The report establishes a timeline for how we can ensure a safe and stable climate. We don’t have much time — 2020 is a clear turning point.
Papst Franziskus fordert in seiner Enzyklika ‚Laudatio Si‘ also ganz unverblümt eine mit eigener Macht ausgestattete politische Weltregierung zur Rettung der Menschheit ein. Mit dieser übereinstimmenden Zielsetzung von Wissenschaft, Politik und Religion ging es dann in die UN-Klimakonferenz vom Dezember 2015 in Paris (COP 21). Das wenig überraschende Ergebnis dieser Klimakonferenz war dann eine „Dekarbonisierung der Welt“ für ein 1,5-2 Grad Klimaziel bis zum Jahre 2100 in einer „nicht verbindlichen“ völkerrechtlichen Vereinbarung, die inzwischen von mehr als 80 Staaten ratifiziert worden ist.
Christiana Figueres, United Nations official admitted that the Global Warming conspiracy set by the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, of which she is the executive secretary, has a goal not of environmental activists to save the world from ecological calamity, but to destroy capitalism.
Sylvestre Huet: Dans sa chronique, Olivier Postel-Vinay prétend faire oeuvre de journaliste spécialisé, capable de lire non seulement les rapports du Giec mais aussi les articles de Nature. En tous cas, s’il lit vraiment les rapports du Giec et les articles des revues scientifiques sur le climat, Postel-Vinay n’est pas un ignorant, c’est donc un menteur. Il ment lorsqu’il écrit: « Le Giec a admis s’être trompé sur l’évolution de la température moyenne globale de la Terre selon les prévisions, continuer d’augmenter régulièrement après 1998, date d’un événement El Niño ».
