Nuclear Greenpeace has always fought - and will continue to fight - vigorously against nuclear power because it is an unacceptable risk to the environment and to humanity. The only solution is to halt the expansion of all nuclear power, and for the shutdown of existing plants.

Blog Climats TV5 Monde Nous publions ici une note rédigée par Olivier Talagrand, un chercheur du Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique / IPSL, en réponse à un article d'Henri Atlan paru dans le journal "Le Monde" Réponse à Henri Atlan. Dans son article intitulé La religion de la catastrophe, publié dans Le Monde daté des 28 et 29 mars, Henri Atlan décrit dans les termes suivants les ‘modèles’ utilisés par les climatologues : ‘Il y a un problème de crédibilité des modèles de changements climatiques et des prédictions qui en sont déduites.

Pro Natura RealClimate by Eric Steig Along with various Seattle business and community leaders, city planners and politicians, a large group of scientists from the University of Washington got a chance to preview the new film, An Inconvenient Truth, last week. The film is about Al Gore’s efforts to educate the public about global warming, with the goal of creating the political will necessary for the United States to take the lead in efforts to lower global carbon emissions. It is an inspiring film, and is decidedly non-partisan in its outlook (though there are a few subtle references to the Bush administration’s lack of leadership on this and other environmental issues). Since Gore is rumored to be a fan of RealClimate, we thought it appropriate to give our first impressions. Much of the footage in Inconvenient Truth is of Al Gore giving a slideshow on the science of global warming.
