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.
Eric Jelinski, past president of Environmentalists for Nuclear - Canada, farmer, environmentalist, university lecturer with degrees in mechanical, chemical and nuclear engineering: Depletion of soil fertility is happening just about everywhere. The UN recently reported that in about 60 harvests soil depletion will be at the point where there are not enough nutrients in the soil to feed ourselves. Shortages of food is already happening in various parts of the world. Those shortages are a threat to national security of Canada, and in fact all western countries. Sustainable development under the guidance of the UN has been a failure. That is why people cannot feed themselves, and have not built themselves the technical, social, and economic infrastructure that we have in the west. Feed somebody for forever is not a solution. Show people how to grow food so they can feed themselves is the solution. The UN represents the ‘failed nations.’ It has concocted the solution to migrate to where there is food.
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.
Don Bogard, radio-geochemistry, nuclear geochemistry, planetary science: The recent release of part 2 of the US National Climate Assessment report, November 2018, prompted all sorts of press reports and similar activity which predicted future calamity and destruction if the world did not take drastic action now. Two points the report did not make -- 1) the UN-IPCC gives a broad range of possible future temperatures of varying probability and the possibility used for this report is at the improbable high end; and 2) it exaggerated any effects from such an unlikely warming. If these future warming predictions have any reality, an increase in global temperature of 2 degrees Celsius, relative to 19th century temperature, cannot be avoided by any action.
