John Droz is the publisher of "Energy and Environmental Newsletter." Fukushima nuclear power plant accident. A nuclear facility finally experienced the dreaded cataclysmic event. Were millions of people stricken or obliterated? No. Compared to what nature did to Japan, the nuclear consequences will be relatively small. To understand the extraordinary forces that these reactors were subjected to, consider that the power of the nearby earthquake has been estimated to equal some 300,000 atomic bombs! If that wasn’t enough, there was then a thirty foot tsunami added to it. 5. The experiences learned here will insure that existing and future reactors will be even safer yet.
John Shanahan, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: Since the 1970s certain people have been blaming mankind for most extreme weather events, changes in the weather, global warming, global cooling, climate change and climate disruption. They have gone one giant step further by claiming that they can "reverse climate change"! That means that when the climate gets warmer than their designated ideal, they can cool it and when it gets colder, they can warm it. Humans have never "reversed climate change" and almost certainly never will. But it is a quick start to a new climate cult.
Charles Battig, M.D. and electrical engineer: Thousands of years of climate adaptation by untold numbers of biological species is now viewed by climate alarmists as an obsolete process, as they assume that the global climate environment has reached its ultimate optimum state of “now.” Weather patterns are now to remain confined to a stable narrow range of not too hot, not too cold. Not too many nor too unusual tornadoes, hurricanes, nor sea level rise lest there be a hint of change. For the “Botoxed generation,” the thing they fear is change itself. Try to change that.
Don Bogard, research scientist and member of The Right Climate Stuff, TRCS, team, website: http://www.therightclimatestuff.com/. This is a clearly written discussion of atmospheric sources and sinks of carbon dioxide. It explains the contributions of CO2 by activities of mankind (cement, land use, fossil fuels).
