Open brief CLINTEL aan wereldleiders op COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypte

Waarom, zullen historici van 2030 zich afvragen, geloofden de VN in oververhitte klimaatmodellen? Waarom beweerde de VN dat er een “existentiële klimaatcrisis” zou zijn? Waarom stelde ze verregaande klimaatgerelateerde maatregelen voor die de welvaart [...]

Guest post by Wim Röst Foreword Especially for Policymakers The greenhouse effect appears to be much higher than previously assumed.

Experienced Engineers must take the lead in the Energy Transition

Green politicians made a big mess of the energy transition and climate scientists encouraged them with their computer models.
