Climate Change: Part 3: Q&A with Prof. David Dilley and Mike Brakey
Climate Change: The Truth about Climate Cycles and Needed Energy Sources
Hosted by the Cumberland County Republican Committee of Maine
Tuesday, September 20, 2022, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
South Portland Community Center
21 Nelson Road, South Portland, ME 04106
This segment is the final Q&A addressed to both speakers.
Their two parts were:
Professor David Dilley
"Climate Cycles or Human Activity?"
Dilley is a Meteorologist / Climatologist and senior research scientist for Global Weather Oscillations
Government agencies say that carbon dioxide levels are rising entirely due to human activity and the burning of fossil fuels. But are they? Professor Dilley will show that today’s temperatures and carbon dioxide levels are very close to where they should be based on historical cycles. He will also show that we are sliding into a long-term global cooling cycle. Global Warming begins and ends at the poles—and Global Cooling is now occurring in the Arctic and Antarctic.
"Fossil Fuels, Renewable Energy or All of Above?"
Brakey founded Brakey Energy in 1999 and is an engineer with expert-level understanding of energy rates and regulations.
Given the expectation of an extended cooling period, Mike Brakey will discuss ways to meet our growing energy needs by maximizing base loads using fossil fuels, biomass, nuclear and hydroelectric power, while pursuing other technologies to fill the energy gap.
