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.

Roger Altman in the Wall Street Journal examines major changes in financial practices that are causing economies and governments to be less stable. Economic forecasting is getting to be more difficult, perhaps next to impossible. Governments and special interest groups are imposing extreme environmental, anti-fossil fuel and anti-nuclear ideologies on energy industries.

CO2 Coalition, John Christy.: Carbon-based energy, which is the most affordable and reliable source of energy in demand today, liberates people from poverty, Without energy, life is brutal and short. The world will continue to burn carbon because the world needs energy – that’s the enabler of human progress and longevity. No matter what they say in Paris in December, 2015, emissions will rise. The science is fairly simple in terms of numbers. The amount of carbon dioxide emissions avoided by the Paris plan is miniscule compared to world emissions. Therefore, its impact on the global temperature will be minuscule. It will be so tiny we can’t even measure it.
