John Shanahan, civil engineer: Fossil fuels are extremely important for modern living and nearly irreplaceable today for many functions. This is a short article with photos about fossil fuels, nuclear power and the topic of man-made global warming, man-made climate change, man-made sea level rise and claims that some humans can "reverse climate change."

Paul Driessen, senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: Foreign tourism in France has been the highest in the world. It has beautiful countrysides, mountains, sea coasts, towns and cities. It also has very high taxes and dogmatic governments when it comes to the illusion of catastrophic man-made global warming from use of fossil fuels. In 2018, the French government imposed more taxes on transportation fuels supposedly to save the world from catastrophic man-made global warming. Common French citizena had enough. They put on their gilets jaunes - yellow safety jackets required in all cars and blocked streets across the country. Everywhere, France is rioting. France is burning. It is ugly. French President, Emmanuel Macron, fled Paris and cancelled the additional carbon tax. This is not the end, but it is the beginning of the end of dogmatic government policies about supposed catastrophic man-made climate change, in France and across Europe.

Calvin Beisner, Cornwall Alliance: This is a review about carbon dioxide concentrations for people and nature with historical notes and photos. The change from 180 ppm to 410 ppm in the last two centuries is small compared to historical variations and easily tolerated by nearly all people. Some people may have trouble with higher levels of CO2, but some people have trouble with more cold, more heat, more humidity, more dryness, etc. It is treacherous for alarmists to claim they can control Earth's climate by raising taxes, carbon dioxide sequestration, stopping use of fossil fuels.

Roger Bezdek, President of Management Information Services, Inc. brought this Nuclear Energy Institute report to our attention: The federal government has spent hundreds of billions of dollars since WW II supporting energy technologies with large shares going to fossil fuels. Energy subsidies are drawing intense attention as policymakers grapple with a variety of incentives that are straining competitive electricity markets and driving baseload generation off the grid.
