Paul Driessen, senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (www.CFACT.org): It seems nearly everyone wants to advance sustainability principles. The problem is, no one really knows what they are. Real sustainability means responsible conservation and stewardship of natural resources. The public relations variety is mostly image-enhancing fluff. The problem with this infinitely malleable definition is that it requires us to predict both unpredictable future technologies and their raw material demands. That’s why this irrational, unworkable, environmentally destructive idea deserves to land in history’s trash bin.
Adelino de Santi Junior is a biologist with Nuclear Industries of Brazil: He compares nuclear power with many other energy sources. He focuses on the topic of CO2 from fossil fuels, but his arguments apply to many other issues when evaluating different energy sources. This website presents articles by people with different views about man-made global warming as long as the author is generally respectful toward people with other views. In some cases we present views by intolerant authors, only to show our audiences what is happening. Thanks for your great leadership, Adelino.
Steven Lyazi is a member of the EFN-USA Board of Advisors in Kampala, Uganda. He describes the problems facing people and the environment in Uganda and across much of Africa. Many serious problems are rooted in African society and government. Other problems are imposed on Africa by environmental activists, western powers and UN agencies dictate what issues are important – and use them to keep us poor and deprived: manmade climate change, no GMO foods, no DDT to prevent malaria, using wind and solar power and never building coal, natural gas or nuclear power plants. This is a criminal trick that denies basic rights to affordable energy, jobs and modern living standards.
Robert Bryce, author of “Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper,” captures the headlong rush of Western culture’s endless drive for ever better technology. It is an extraordinary impulse that has created a world in which more people live longer and more comfortably than ever before. Mr. Bryce’s policy prescriptions will be more welcome in Houston than in the White House. He contends that the pantheon of environmentalists like Mr. Gore, Bill McKibben, Amory Lovins and Greenpeace are wildly optimistic in their extravagant hopes for wind power, solar cells and biofuels.
