Le progrès Économie Environnement États-Unis

Industrialisation

Entre 1900 et 2000 aux États-Unis, les émissions de CO2 ont augmenté de 8,5 fois, l’utilisation de molécules chimiques de synthèse a augmenté de 101 fois, l’utilisation des métaux a augmenté de 7,2 fois et le PIB/habitant a augmenté de 6,9 fois.

Conséquences: l’espérance de vie est passée de 47 ans à 77 ans et la mortalité infantile est passée de 100/1 000 naissances à 7/1 000 naissances.

Voilà pourquoi la croissance économique comporte plus d’avantages que d’inconvénients.

Climategate: a scandal that won’t go away
The Daily Telegraph

If you were faced with by far the biggest bill of your life, would you not want to be confident that there was a very good reason why you should pay it? That is why we need to know just how far we can trust the science behind the official view that the world is threatened with catastrophe by global warming – because the measures proposed by our politicians to avert this supposed disaster threaten to transform our way of life out of recognition and to land us with easily the biggest bill in history. (The Climate Change Act alone, says the Government, will cost us all £18 billion every year until 2050.)

When several of the more alarmist claims in its most recent 2007 report were revealed to be wrong and without any scientific foundation, the official response, not least from the IPCC’s chairman, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, was to claim that everything in its report was “peer-reviewed”, having been confirmed by independent experts.

But a new study put this claim to the test. A team of 40 researchers from 12 countries, led by a Canadian analyst Donna Laframboise, checked out every one of the 18,531 scientific sources cited in the mammoth 2007 report. Astonishingly, they found that nearly a third of them – 5,587 – were not peer-reviewed at all, but came from newspaper articles, student theses, even propaganda leaflets and press releases put out by green activists and lobby groups.
