GUS, « Nec plus ultra », c'est du latin, malheureusement  ce que Bof te conseille ici  est un site  en langue anglaise… Un petit effort de ta part qui sera bien récompensé.


C’est une nouveauté, une mine inépuisable de renseignements pour quiconque aime les débats d’idées sur des sujets  brûlants.  Et les suivre au jour le jour…


 Mon cher Gus, si tu t’intéresses toujours au  changement climatique. Si  tu ne t’en remets pas simplement aux mots d’ordre de Greenpeace  au moment de leur souscription annuelle; si tu n’a pas encore capitulé  et déjà  acheté tes maillots de bain et récupéré ta bouée en canard gonflé de ton enfance pour affronter la hausse de vingt pieds des océans annoncée par Gore, tu peux consulter ce nouveau site qui semble à Bof qui s’intéresse depuis longtemps à ce problème (voir Écologie   et   Alarmisme) une véritable bibliothèque  virtuelle.  Tu y trouveras  une mine d’informations comme Bof  n’en a jamais trouvée  et qui   semble faire  le tour du problème le plus objectivement possible  et de façon le plus englobante.  Si l’anglais n’est pas un obstacle,  c'est la source d’information numéro Un. Un « must » dans toute bonne bibliothèque  virtuelle (digne d’un signet).  A consulter quotidiennement.   Bof donne ici une vue de  la première page (10 janv. 2008) avec ses multiples  références…. Tu en as pour quelques mois de lecture et des heures  à suivre quotidiennement l’échange des idées…  A la fin,  tu mériteras certainement un diplôme, un bac en écologie..






Climate Debate Daily


Gus, tu n’as qu’à aller à l’adresse ci-haut donnée.

Pour illustrer son propos,  Bof se permet pour montrer toute la richesse du site de copier ici des extraits de la  première page qui a plutôt l’allure d’un rayon  de bibliothèques.


1. Un recueil d’une quarantaine d’articles référencés allant dans le sens  des positions  du Giec  (IPCC) . (mandaté par l’ONU) (le réchauffement climatique est causé principalement par l’activité humaine…qui peut donc  éventuellement  être inversé par l’homme… sinon multiples catastrophes à l’horizon.. )


Calls to action


Essays and research supporting the idea that global warming poses a clear threat to humanity, that it is largely caused by human activity, and that solutions to the problems of climate change lie within human reach.
