When man first appeared on Earth he had no implements, no clothes, no farms and no mineral fuels – his only tools were his brains, hands and muscles.

On Earth Day we should Celebrate The True Green Fuels

...hydrocarbons and nuclear

The Carbon Sense Coalition today urged people to celebrate the true green fuels – oil, coal, gas, nuclear and, in places, geothermal and hydro. The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, said in a Press release this week that these fuels have reduced man’s pressure on the environment to such an extent that they should be celebrated on “Earth Day”.

This has damaged all metals industries – iron and steel, copper, nickel, aluminium, lead and zinc.

Recent headlines exulted: “Real estate makes bigger profits than mining”.... This is an omen, not a signal to celebrate.


Cosmic Cycles, not Carbon Dioxide, Control Climate.

Those who think the political war on carbon will lower Earth’s temperature or keep climate stable need to study climate history. Temperatures on Earth dance to a cyclic rhythm every hour, every day, every month, every season, every year, and to every beat of the sun-spot and glacial cycles.

Every living thing needs access to energy, food, light and warmth. But the UN is plotting to limit our access to energy. A study of human history shows what a grave threat this poses to all of us.
