Seth Wynes, Kimberly Nicholas: Current anthropogenic climate change is the result of greenhouse gas accumulation in the atmosphere, which records the aggregation of billions of individual decisions. Here we consider a broad range of individual lifestyle choices and calculate their potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in developed countries. We recommend four widely applicable high-impact (i.e. low emissions) actions with the potential to contribute to systemic change and substantially reduce annual personal emissions: having one fewer child, living car-free, avoiding airplane travel and eating a plant-based diet. These actions have much greater potential to reduce emissions than commonly promoted strategies like comprehensive recycling or changing household lightbulbs.

Sebastian Luening, Geologist, Paleontologist, publisher of website kaltesonne.de: Das Klimaestablishment hat sich jahrelang bequem eingerichtet. Mithilfe des Klimaalarms wurde politischer Druck aufgebaut, der eigene Bereich erhöht und Fördermittel abgegriffen. Niemand konnte ein Interesse daran haben, dieses praktische und einträgliche System zu verlassen. Es macht daher Sinn, den klimatischen Status Quo durch unabhängige, unbelastete Forscher prüfen zu lassen. Dies ist ein klassischer “Red Team”-Ansatz, der in großen Firmen gelebt wird.

Maurice Allais, Nobel Prize in Economics, 1988, Memorium by Marjorie Mazel Hecht: French thinker Maurice Allais, who died Oct. 9, 2010, is alone among the Nobel Laureates in economics in making the general welfare, and physical reality, central to his economic theories. For this he deserves our thanks. But Professor Allais was more than just an economist; he wrote many books and papers on history, both ancient and modern, and on various political systems.
