Wim Turkenburg: 100% duurzaam geen peulenschil

Wim Turkenburg. Langzamerhand lijkt het besef door te breken dat grootschalige inzet van duurzame energie niet mogelijk en ook niet wenselijk is. Zover gaat Wim Turkenburg overigens niet in zijn recente bijdrage aan de discussie in de Volkskrant onder de titel, ‘Jan Terlouws peulenschil – de overstap op hernieuwbare energie – is een loodzware opgave’.

Wim Turkenburg. Een gastbijdrage van Jeroen Hetzler. In de Volkskrant van 29 juli verscheen een overzicht van de vorderingen bij het bereiken van de afgesproken klimaatdoelen. Zie hier. Vooralsnog lijkt hier niet veel schot in te zitten. Zo lezen we: We gebruiken energie voor auto’s, voor industrie en voor elektriciteit, maar ook een aanzienlijk deel

Postmoderne doemprofeten

Een gastbijdrage van Jeroen Hetzler. Tja, mochten wij weer een artikel smaken waarin men ons wil wijsmaken dat wij een klimaatprobleem hebben. Het artikel tracht in te haken op het onderliggende doemdenken dat sinds het Rapport aan de Club van Rome zich in ons denken heeft genesteld onder druk van de milieubeweging en andere belanghebbenden

Farmers don’t believe in global warming and why that’s not a paradox

If one ever wanted one article summing up all that’s wrong with climate science and climate science communication then we now have a credible source. Read senior editor Beth Kowitt’s Fortune article: The Paradox of American Farmers and Climate Change. What is the paradox? Some U.S. farmers are skeptical of climate change, even though they’re among the most affected

Jorgen Vig Knudstorp, You Are a Pussy!

As Schopenhauer stated, when rational arguments no longer suffice – pe. your opponent is too stupid/irrational or whimpy anyway- you just start insulting. We arrive at this level of discussion when LEGO-CEO Jorgen Vig Knudstorp kneels for terror by an activist-multinational (income over 0.2 billion euros) that exploits toys of children for it’s political ideology

Leading Dutch Financial Newspaper: “Is the European energy policy bankrupt?”

Notrickszone.com is so valuable in that it shares purely German news with the whole world. Today with this announcement in Financieel Dagblad I feel that also the whole world should know. I heard about the new theme in a series of Energy Debates – “Is the European energy policy bankrupt?” – from an advertisement on

OK, you want to avoid more than 2°C warming, here’s your Challenge Ahead

On a day with particularly interesting weather (tornado’s, hail, storm – see my picture), while surfing the web for my daily dose of news on climate and energy, I accidentally came across an online report by the Dutch Environmental Planning Agency (PBL) about tracking the goals of “Rio 1992”.

    I became a theoretic contributor of my sollutions and leads for wise humanitarian fieldworks. Well, about half a year ago I was at the end of my inspiration for creative technical answers how to catch and neutralise cars their combustion fumes in them.
    So what I say is I have technical ideas inventing car fume neutralising technical processes what made in persue of 100% neutralising within cars, at low cost and easy simple math obsticals.

    To me it is to find a succesful way in for my results into consciousness I have the sollutions enough to clean air pollution on Earth, drasticly at bottom climate price.
    I even have a lead for pollution of factories.

    In case you want to know what may change us all in realistic climate optimists, then contact me via my blog where I post all my finalised persues for humanitarian brakethroughs. http://Www.thehumanitarianevolution.blogspot.be(or .com)

    Yours sincerely,
