Dear friends, colleagues, and correspondents,
I must confess that, two weeks ago, I would have hesitated for a long time to talk about global warming, even if France only represents 15% of the planet's surface, and that when it is cold here, it is hot elsewhere. : Anyone who shivered would probably have rigged me with adjectives that I prefer not to know, even though I did receive a few messages asking me if the Gulf Stream was not already stopping.
Fortunately - well, so to speak ... - a thermometer ironed above 20 ° C before spring arrives takes away any hesitation! Here is my very meager production of the past quarter, overload requires, but I will at least have the satisfaction of falling right into the news with one of my productions:
- Since everyone sacrifices it, I have no reason to make an exception to commenting on texts, even if this kind of exercise has not always succeeded for me (4/20 in the French baccalaureate, like what we survive many things!): is the European constitution good for the environment? Difficult to do anything other than a response from Normand: http://www.manicore.com/documentation/constitution.html
- Causeries, 1: an interview published in “La Liberté”, a daily newspaper published in Friborg (Switzerland), on the occasion of the entry into force of Kyoto:
Read the interview
- Talks, 2: When you like statistics, you don't change, and I produced some figures on the audiences that I had in front of me when I carried out a climatico-energetic indoctrination:
It should surprise more than one ...
- Causeries, 3: a tribune on our Janus side to all, published - in a largely redacted manner, and without telling the reader, which is very bad - by Les Echos on the occasion of the entry into force of
- Talks, 4 (frankly approaching the countertop philosophy, I'm afraid): should we be optimistic or pessimistic about the ability of the modern biped to roll up its sleeves in the face of the climate challenge?
- statistics, again and again: I have largely completed my page giving some framing elements on the distribution of greenhouse gas emissions by source:
Finally, I have excellent news for all the stingy ones who were only waiting for the release of the pocket edition of "l'Avenir Climatique"
( http://www.manicore.com/documentation/articles/avenir_climatique.html ) to fund my publisher's bank account as modestly as possible: this edition has been available since the end of February, and if your bookseller does not have this little red book, I suggest you drag it to the Court of Justice of the Union European - it is appropriate - for "hindering the free circulation of climate ideas", no but!
Best regards to all
