John Shanahan, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy - USA explains the purpose of presenting all sides of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic (man-made) Global Warming, CAGW, / Climate Change debate along with comments by scientists on all sides of this discussion. Support for nuclear energy must be by sound science, i.e. following the Scientific Method. One of the sides in the CAGW debate is not following the Scientific Method. The readers of the efn-usa.org website can decide for themselves.
William Happer, Professor of Physics - He believes that the increase of CO2 is not a cause for alarm and will be good for mankind. He predicts that future historians will look back on this period much as we now view the period just before the passage of the 18th Amendment to the US Constitution to ban the manufacturing, sale or transportation of intoxicating liquors. It as the 1917 version of saving the planet. What about the frightening consequences of increasing levels of CO2? In a word, they are wildly exaggerated, just as the purported benefits of Prohibition. At least 90% of greenhouse warming is due to water vapor and clouds. Carbon dioxide is a bit player.
William Happer, Professor of Physics, Princeton University - He is a strong supporter of a clean environment. We need to be vigilant to keep land, air and waters free of real pollution, particulates, heavy metals, pathogens, but carbon dioxide (CO2) is not one of these pollutants. Carbon is the stuff of life. Our bodies are made of carbon. Every day a normal human exhales around 1 kg of CO2 - the simplest chemically stable molecule of carbon in the earth's atmosphere.
No sunspots suggests possible global cooling (Freeman Dyson, Calvin Beisner, Cornwall Alliance) USofA13.May.2016
Freeman Dyson, May, 2016 - I watched Mercury transiting the Sun. The striking fact was not the little black image of Mercury but the total absence of sunspots. I have seen many transits before this one, but never without sunspots. It seems the sun has gone to sleep as it did in the Maunder Minimum in the seventeenth century. In the seventeenth century we had the Little Ice Age and now we have the pause in global warming. Evidence getting stronger that the Sun is a big player in the climate story.
