Vindmøller er IN!! Vedvarende energi er IN!!!
Men vi må aldrig ofre åben og sund videnskab - heller ikke når det gælder klima.

Fint. Jeg har jo selv lavet en lignende liste til her, der både omhandler videnskab og politik, og som også inddrager danske forkortelser.

Der er en del overlap. Du må dog meget gerne skrive et svar i tråden, hvis du har forslag til tilføjelser, dvs. forkortelser der bliver brugt så ofte, at de må betegnes som centrale, også i debatten her på siden.

Mindre opmærksomhed om klima

Ingen større påvirkning

Øget opmærksomhed om klima
