Cornwall Alliance, Calvin Beisner - Their position is that fossil fuels created many benefits of the modern world for a lot of humanity and should be used to help the rest of humanity out of dire poverty. Carbon dioxide from fossil fuels is not expected to cause catastrophic global warming.
The Pope and the Science Advisor to the US President conclude that fossil fuels will cause catastrophic global warming and must be cut back significantly to save humanity. Use the search box with keyword "pope" or "science advisor".
Only one of these positions represents the Scientific Method. Nuclear power must be advocated using sound science. You decide.
Tom Harsfield - Presently, the best climate models fall many orders of magnitude short of the power and intricacy needed to effectively predict the long-term climate patterns that emerge from the interactions of all these planetary systems. And that's not a failure of science; it's just the reality of how tough the problem is.But there is a major failure of science going on. The failure is the lack of transparency and honesty about how feeble these models are and how much we should stake on their all-too-fallible forecasts.
Rhodi Lee, Tech Times - Air pollution is a serious challenge facing the developing world. Previously, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom faced air pollution to the same degree. It is estimated that air pollution kills 5.5 million per year. Using cleaner fuels, air pollution control technologies and nuclear power are the best ways of solving this menace.
CFACT, Patrick Moore, Ph.D. Ecology, Co-Founder of Greenpeace: There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years. If there were such a proof it would be written down for all to see. No actual proof, as it is understood in science, exists.

Fred Singer, Founding Director of the U.S. Weather Satellite Service. He regards the absence of any significant man-made global warming as settled; note the emphasis on the word “significant.” Policies to limit CO2 emissions are wasting resources that could better be used for genuine societal problems like public health. He is much more concerned by a cooling climate—as predicted by many climate scientists—with its adverse effects on ecology and severe consequences for humanity.

Paul Driessen, is senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) and Heartland Institute. Tiny amounts of this miracle molecule make life on Earth possible. Carbon dioxide performs as many miracles for our planet as antibiotics and immunizations have for mankind. That is an amazing feat for a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that represents just 0.04 percent of our atmosphere: the equivalent of just 40 cents out of $1,000.
Ed Berry, Ph.D. in Physics, presents a short, clear, easy to understand proof with references to works by some of the world's top scientists in physics and atmospheric physics that CO2 from fossil fuels is not going to cause serious man made climate change. For oposite views, go to tab ENVIRONMENT, sub tab Man-Made Global Warming - Sounding the Alarm. One Alarmist paper goes so far as to declare that CO2 from use of fossil fuels in the 20th and 21st Centuries will cancel the next two ice ages spanning hundreds of thousands of years.!!!
Judith Curry is professor at the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology - The politically driven push to manufacture a premature consensus on human-caused climate change has resulted in the relative neglect of natural climate variability. Until we have a better understanding and predictive capability of natural climate variability, we don’t have a strong basis for predicting climate change in the decades or century to come. Whether the climate models are correct or whether natural climate dominates, it appears that the Paris agreement will turn out to be phenomenally expensive but ultimately futile in altering the course of the 21st century climate.
