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.
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.
Bruno Comby offers his perspective on the 2016 US and 2017 French presidential elections. Massive amounts of clean, reliable energy are needed to support the world population and help protect the environment, maintain wildlife habitat and preserve biodiversity. Otherwise, the world will simply revert to the way it was before use of fossil fuels. Plentiful energy has tremendously improved the lives of many. With sound government policies and worldwide cooperation, it can improve the lives of most of humanity. The present elections in the USA and France are case studies of the challenges governments face and have some pointers of how governments can do better.
