This is a scientific article. Or at least I pretend it is because it did not yet go through peer review.
Summary of the summary:
It’s impossible to know from observation how much of the actual warming can be attributed to CO2 or to other parameters.
So far, only model calculations provide more or less plausible estimates of its contribution to the observed 1 °C rise: it lies between 25 and 30% (according to some other calculations it could even be only ~10%). Continue reading
The Swiss Federal Council, our government, has decided to get out of nuclear energy and to orient our electrical supply toward renewable sources. This decision has not yet been confirmed in the Parliament, and we, the people, will have to have a say, I hope.
Here is some material to forge one’s opinion.
In short : it’s monstrous, almost impossible to implement on out territory. And it is expensive, very expensive, between 3 and 8 times what it would cost to replace the current nuclear facilities. Electrical autarchy is not for tomorrow.
It’s in French but not so complicated. Continue reading
The US EPA decided a few years ago to name carbon dioxide a pollutant.
This means that such substance is detrimental to the environment, to life.
Is it actually the case for CO2? Continue reading
Carbon is an essential element for life on Earth.
It is totally absurd to pretend that emitting it into the atmosphere in the form of CO2 is a dirty, polluting act.
On the site climate-mr-int.ch, I demonstrate that the climate is much less sensitive to it than what is pretended as a dogma since more than thirty years (see here).
Having made this point, I should avoid analysing what happens with CO2, since it has… Continue reading
On my site dedicated to climate questions climate.mr-int.ch, that all of you will have consulted and read with much attention, there is a blog item in which news and some details are published. This makes an overlap with this more general blog. Now I’m merging both into just one.
A series of old entries will now appear here, if you didn’t read them this is a good opportunity to do so, and if you did you can jump to… Continue reading
The interactive slide presentation with my arguments against anthropowarmism has been updated and completed.
- my 10 argument summary slides;
- supplemental information on radiative forcing explanations and calculation;
- an analysis on CO2 being or not THE culprit, which it’s far from being the case, and whose contribution to warming is, at most, weak.

Here is a strong statement, one of those that can only be convincing because categorical:
“Nevertheless, concerning what I call ecological disaster, I lean unfortunately on real facts, and, whatever the abilities of the human brain to eradicate such facts of its consciousness, they exist… Just like the sun shines.”
The young cousin who writes this to me, she will recognize herself, has no doubt, she knows. The facts on which she bases her conviction can moreover be enumerated… Continue reading
Species do not evolve to follow any purpose. As would say Johnny: “they evolve … because they change.”
We know that giraffes did not develop a long neck to manage to graze the top of trees, nor that insects did not begin making pheromones with the aim of attracting a sexual partner. These functions appeared and turned out superior in comparison with previous alternatives; this allowed the species to survive better, while many others went extinct. Over the course of… Continue reading
