The Document Library

category

If you’ve browsed through our continuously updated documents, you’ll have appreciated their breadth of scope and their seriousness.

We have peer reviewed international references that are often overlooked in mainstream media and other climate sites.

We have documents that criticise things that haven’t worked, and since we’ve concentrated on science and tried to factor out ideology, some of our documents may seem controversial.

A thorough mitigation scenario to contain temperature rise to 2°C. Gives detail requirements for all major GHG generating sectors. Much has been deduced from the situation in France, however the logic is transferable to other countries. moreless

also in categories economics, energy, plans and scenarios, success and failures, technology moreless
Discussions of the costs of the German Energy Transition plan, and its achievements and limitations. Conclusion: “Le rapport coût-bénéfice de la transition énergétique allemande est désastreux. En dépit de ces investissements astronomiques dans le développement des renouvelables, la décarbonisation du secteur électrique ne progresse pas. Les émissions des gaz à effet de serre sont mêmes revenues à leur niveau de 2009. Allemagne ne semble pas en mesure d’atteindre les objectifs climatiques qu’elle s’est fixée.” moreless

http://www.pseudo-sciences.org/spip.php?article2626
also in categories effects, nuclear, radiation moreless
Ces résultats, attestés par plus d’une centaine de publications scientifiques, ne correspondent pas à ce que l’on imagine des suites de ces bombardements : en général, et même dans les milieux scientifiques, on pense que les survivants ont subi un taux catastrophique de cancers, et que leurs enfants ont souffert de multiples anomalies génétiques. La parution récente de récapitulatifs de ces études offre l’occasion de faire une nouvelle fois le point. moreless
https://ideesrecuessurlenergie.wordpress.com/2017/07/29/consultation-asn-sur-lepr-la-democratie-defouloir/
also in categories industry, nuclear, technology moreless
La dérive actuelle vers la démocratie d’opinion, encouragée par le système médiatique et la publicité dont elle dépend, ainsi que par des politiciens carriéristes, conduit à affirmer que le nucléaire a manqué de concertation dans l’orientation avangardiste prise en 1974, et que l’arbitrage consensuel des experts qualifiés doit être désormais assorti d’une “consultation” des citoyens. L’important semble donc être que chacun puisse verbaliser ses angoisses, avoir l’impression d’être écouté. moreless
http://www.sfen.org/fr/rgn/le-recyclage-pour-reduire-lempreinte-environnementale-du-nucleaire
also in categories nuclear, radiation, recycling solutions, waste moreless
An explanation of recycling used nuclear fuel and its environmental advantages. Details explained and calculations show the environmental impact, and compare with other resources. moreless

also in categories economics, effects, energy, fossil fuel, government, habitation, industry, nuclear, plans and scenarios, solar, transportation, wind, podcasts moreless
French President Macron’s speech at COP23, which clarified French climate policy. The speech followed the science, unlike previous presidents’ speeches on the subject. It’s an example of lucidity and good sense. moreless

http://www.geopolitique-electricite.fr/documents/ene-214.pdf
also in categories economics, energy, government, solar, success and failures, wind moreless
Il est frappant de constater le peu d’impact en près de quinze ans sur le mix énergétique d’une politique volontariste de transition focalisée sur l’électricité et le couple éolien-solaire. Et basée sur de lourds investissements et des subventions massives. Eolien et solaire ne fournissent même pas 5% de la consommation totale d’énergie en 2016. Par contre les dégâts collatéraux sont réels. Les prix de gros du marché de l’électricité s’effondrent et les tarifs des consommateurs s’envolent. moreless
http://library.savingourplanet.net/documents/616_Planete.pdf
also in categories causes, sea moreless
De 2008 à 2011, une pause apparente du réchauffement global semblait sonner le glas de la thèse du changement climatique, pourtant prouvée par le recul historique de la banquise arctique en 2007 et le triplement constaté du rythme de montée des eaux au vingtième siècle (30 cm au lieu de 10 cm par siècle durant les 50 siècles précédents). moreless
http://library.savingourplanet.net/documents/WindTurbineOutputSmoothing.pdf
also in categories energy, wind moreless
Le lissage de la production d’électricité éolienne est une nécessité absolue pour tout scénario énergétique dans lequel cette électricité représenterait plus de 30% de la consommation. Des trois types de stockage habituellement proposés, batteries, STEPs et transformations électricité-gaz puis gaz-électricité, seul le troisième est envisageable à court ou moyen terme. moreless
https://www.ecologique-solidaire.gouv.fr/suivi-strategie-nationale-bas-carbone

A biannual dashboard that reports on the progress of the energy transition plan - sector by sector vs the objectives. This first iteration shows that achievements are already behind objectives, and suggests that economic subsidies are aimed at the wrong targets. moreless

A starting point for data regarding the modification of the energy development plans for the periods 2018-2023 and 2024-2028. The French energy transition plan mandates these periodic revisions. There are many documents that can be downloaded. Some have found this a curious way to decide technically complex issues. Most docs in French, a few in English. moreless
