Four priorities about unscientific claims of man-made climate change and energy (Viv Forbes) Australia12.Mar.2019
Viv Forbes, Executive Director of The Salt Bush Club, Australia: Poor policies are taking Australia into tough times. There are four priorities for the 2019 election. Firstly: Decimate the Feral Green Snakes in the Grass. Secondly: Build more Reliable Base-Load Power Stations. Thirdly: Build More Dams and Weirs. Finally: Fight Fire with Fire. We must fix these four issues. Stop draining Australian money to support foreign agendas and the bloated UN bureaucracy. Let’s help Australians instead.
John Shanahan is a civil engineer and past president of Go Nuclear, Inc. and Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: There is a titanic struggle over the topic of man-made global warming and man-made sea level rise. The struggle exists on five levels: a) among scientists who have a good knowledge of physics and chemistry related to carbon dioxide from fossil fuels and its role in the entire subject of atmospheric, ocean and land sciences, b) among politicians, c) among people who are determined to save the world from fossil fuels and man-made carbon dioxide, no matter the effects on humanity, d) among other scientists and engineers who claim to have the answers, d) among the public who have very little to no knowledge of atmospheric science, but nevertheless are sure they know the correct answers. A second important topic relates to advocates for nuclear energy who claim to have the answers. If they are wrong about man-made global warming, how can they be trusted with information about nuclear energy. The absolute truth will only come from nature in time. The question is, "How many big mistakes will humans make on this topic before the truth is fully known?
David Legates, Professor of Geography and Climatology, former Director of the Center for Climatic Research, University of Delaware, and a Senior Fellow of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation: Is a warmer climate and more carbon dioxide a net benefit to life on the planet? The answer to this question is a resounding “YES.” More people die from exposure to cold than heat. A longer growing season is more beneficial to feeding a growing population. Carbon dioxide is plant food. So, what is the climatic benefit of spending trillions of dollars for inaccurate computer model "research," forcing the world to stop using fossil fuels and putting people's lives back to the Middle Ages?
Viv Forbes, Executive Director of The Salt Bush Club, Australia: If a project can be stopped because it adds to carbon dioxide emissions every development of coal, oil or gas in Australia can be challenged. But the ominous implications go much further. The sports and tourism industries should be fearful. These industries encourage millions of competitors, visitors, tourists, officials and politicians to use cars, trains, buses, planes and ships to burn hydro-carbon fuels purely for entertainment. Car racing is out, as are new cruise terminals, stadiums, resorts, high rise hotels and fireworks. Moreover, any new road, rail or airport development will add emissions and must be stopped. But if they can stop the mining of coking coal this will also stop metal smelting, refining and steel making.
