Richard Feynmann: The Scientific Method. Watch the first seconds of this video ... you can't do that too often!
Watch this interview (in German) on the subject of "Klimaangst" with Prof. Bandelow,
an Angst-researcher and chairman of the "Deutsche Gesellchaft für Angstforschung".

0. Bill GATES:
"Poor countries ... desperately need cheap sources of energy now to fuel economic growth that lifts families out of poverty. They can't afford today's expensive clean energy solutions and we can't expect them to wait for the technology to get cheaper."

Bill Gates, who said poor countries “desperately need cheap sources of energy now to fuel economic growth that lifts families out of poverty. They can’t afford today’s expensive clean energy solutions and we can’t expect them to wait for the technology to get cheaper.” - See more at: http://www.thegwpf.com/new-climate-change-battlefront-pits-tony-abbott-against-the-anti-coal-brigade/#sthash.J5szcsdQ.dpuf

1. Dr. Wolfgang Thüne: Das „Treibhaus“ treibt Journalisten in die Glaubwürdigkeitskrise.
"
Die Journalisten konnten der Versuchung nicht widerstehen, erfüllten die in sie gesetzten Erwartungen, betrieben die „Skandalisierung“ von Umweltproblemen, prangerten die „Schuldigen“ öffentlich an und inszenierten im Muster simpler Mythen ein Schauspiel „das Gute im Kampf mit dem Bösen“, bei dem der Leser sich immer auf die moralisch richtige Seite der „Guten“ schlagen konnte."

2. Keeping the lights on. Read the annual GWFP lecture by Owen Paterson, former Envrionment Secretary. "To summarise, we must challenge the current groupthink and be prepared to stand up to the bullies in the environmental movement and their subsidy-hungry allies...I am saying that we may achieve almost as much in the way of emissions reduction, perhaps even more if innovation goes well." Read comments here , here and here.

3. Very interesting, very technical and not easy to read report of the BNA on German electrical power net stability/security in winter 2014/15. Conclusion: "Betrachtete Szenarien zeigen eine massive Gefährdung der Sicherheit und Zuverlässigkeit des Elektrizitätsversorgungs-system...Keine ausreichende Sicherheitsseserven zur Beherrschung weiterer kritischer und unerwarteter Situationen." Click here for interesting figure of EU power stations.

4. Is low energy density the solution for the planet?
Read this excellent comment on Noami Klein's latest book. "Whenever we use energy it is to free ourselves from some natural condition: to be warm in winter and cool in summer, to stay up after dark, to eat out of season, to escape hard labor, to leave the local patch of terroir where we sprouted and see the world."

96.
James Lovelock: "They all talk, they pass laws, they do things, as if they knew what was happening. I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening. They just guess. And a whole group of them meet together and encourage each other’s guesses." (link)

97. Words of the great physicist Freeman Dyson: "Unfortunately the global warming hysteria, as I see it, is driven by politics more than by science. If it happens that I am wrong and the climate experts are right, it is still true that the remedies are far worse than the disease that they claim to cure."

98. Words by the great French philosopher Pascal Bruckner: "All the foolishness of Bolshevism, Maoism, and Trotskyism are somehow reformulated exponentially in the name of saving the planet." (comments here and here)
_______________

99. R. Lindzen: "Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age"


 "Le doute est le commen-cement de la science ; qui ne doute de rien n'examine rien ; qui n'examine rien ne découvre rien ; qui ne découvre rien est aveugle et demeure aveugle".
Jean Chardin, 1686. Journal du voyage du chevalier Chardin en Perse.

 

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Fire and Ice, R. Frost, 1920

"The greatest challenge facing mankind is the challenge of distinguishing reality from fantasy, truth from propaganda."
Michael Crichton + 4Nov08

"Und denn, man muß das Wahre immer wiederholen, weil auch der Irrtum um uns her immer wieder gepredigt wird, und zwar nicht von einzelnen, sondern von der Masse. In Zeitungen und Enzyklopädien, auf Schulen und Universitäten, überall ist der Irrtum oben auf, und es ist ihm wohl und behaglich, im Gefühl der Majorität, die auf seiner Seite ist". Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1828.

The data of MeteoLCD are used to compute the UV-Index published by several Luxembourg periodicals. A research project done in collaboration with the Radiation Protection Office of Luxembourg studies the general UV pattern and the relationship between UVB irradiance and tropospheric ozone concentrations.
