Vaclav Smil, Czech-Canadian scientist and policy analyst. Professor Emeritus in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Manitoba in Canada: The human craving for novelty is insatiable, and in a small matter you can meet it in no time at all, particularly when Moore’s Law can help you. It took a single decade to come up with entirely new mobile phones. But you just can’t replicate that pace of adoption with techniques that form the structure of modern civilization—growing food, extracting energy, producing bulk materials, or providing transport on mass scales.

Michel Gay: La loi sur la transition énergétique pour la croissance verte (LTECV) a été votée le 22 juillet 2015 en conformité avec les engagements du candidat Hollande. En effet, cette loi : - consacre la réduction du nucléaire à 50 % de la production d'électricité, - pénalise le recours à l’électricité, dont plus de 90% de la production nationale n'émet pas de gaz à effet de serre, au profit du gaz (importé), - favorise outrageusement les éoliennes et les panneaux photovoltaïques, - engage un irréaliste et coûteux programme de réduction de consommation d'énergie de 20% d’ici 2030, et de 50% d'ici 2050.

Norman Rogers, Physicist. Contributor to American Thinker, Board Member: CO2 Coalition, National Association of Scholars, Policy Advisor: Heartland Institute, Member: American Geophysical Union, American Meteorological Society.: Green ideology is a collection of beliefs and superstitions that have been elevated into a religious cult. The green cult is rife with contradictions and dogma. The electric power grid is an essential of modern life. Take it away, and the consequence would be mass extinction. The greens are eager to tamper with the grid. They want to substitute "clean" wind and solar electricity for the "dirty" nuclear, coal, and natural gas electricity.

The central purpose of efn-usa.org is to focus on the potential goodness in mankind and the wonders of nature and the environment. But, reality frequently interferes. This article by Paul Driessen of the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, CFACT, describes how extremely wealthy and powerful people are enriching themselves and abusing humanity and the environment. James Lovelock: "The climate is doing its usual tricks. There's nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now."
