2019-06-14 EuroNanoForum – much climate less nano

To hear at Bucharest: anyone who dares to question man-made climate change (e.g. Zoz), shall go to jail. After all confirmed: more economical & ecological than “diesel” is not possible.

EuroNanoForum 2019
Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Progress under Horizon 2020 and beyond.

This year’s EuroNanoForum (ENF2019) ended last Friday (14.06.2019) at Bucharest/Romania. This conference is organized from the European Commission always in the country holding the EU-Presidency. And this at present is Romania. The current conference last week, earned the markings “Nanotechnology and High Performance Materials,” only to a limited extent. More on that later.

Not coincidently, also this time, Prof. Zoz was invited to report on progress, last week particularly upon…
Such materials in Germany are investigated under the premise “high-melting materials for the energy transition”, in the EU mostly under “materials for nuclear fusion”.

Also within last week, on Whit-Monday, Zoz hosted …. will move in.

In the world`s second largest building.

The conference was held in the People’s Palace at Bucharest, also known as Ceauşescu-temple. Representing the second largest building on earth, after the Pentagon, it can also be seen from the moon.
Zoz did not know that at all – and was astonished: “Tens of thousands of square meters of highly polished marble; such a thing can only be done in a dictatorship; the whole trip was already worth it just for this building; in fact, the list of wonders of the world should be extended.”


Materials- or climate conference ?

What was irritating at Bucharest is that hardly any of the numerous contributions focused on technology and materials. Almost everything and anything was addressing the so claimed man-made climate change. It was indeed more like one of those unspeakable climate conferences.

For Zoz, this unfortunately has not been such a surprise, but rather a regrettable confirmation of how far green religion and ideology have spread in “science”. Already in Athens, at the time of the Greek EU-Presidency, Prof. Zoz had asked during his contribution to the entire plenary session: “What’s wrong with carbon ?”.

Cleaner & better than Diesel – at present not possible. At least confirmed on ENF !

And so here, right in the first session, Zoz said it`s known, that already many years ago, Zoz had acquired 10 electric vehicles – and now, since the beginning of this year, he himself is driving a “Diesel” for the first time. That’s exactly, what he never wanted to do – because of greasy hands while refueling. However, Zoz continues, the insanity around CO2 and now even worse, the fine-dust scenario are hard to bear. Everyone should know that within the next 10-20 years, you cannot drive more economic and more ecologic, than with a diesel-engine powered vehicle.

Typically enough, the last thesis was fully confirmed by a plenary lecture by Prof. Robert Schloegl, director of the Fritz Haber Institute (Max Planck) on the other day. This could be read from a projected slide, Prof. Zoz asked for this in detail and Prof. Schloegl confirmed (by multiple nods) down from the podium.

Man-made Climate Change – Mumbo Jumbo.

Furthermore, Prof. Zoz claimed on day one with respect to the so called “CO2 and man-made climate change”, if one already believes this hocus pocus, then at least you should try to fight, where it could make most sense. Germany’s total man-made CO2 emissions are lower than just the annual emission growth in China. And the population of Africa is growing by nearly a million every week. “And those in the future all want to drive a car, heat their homes and drink beer from cans. Germany is already clean ! As clean as never before during my life”. Zoz appealed: “we have to go where the fire is”.

Exactly this was also confirmed on the second day during a lecture by the President of the European Academy of Sciences, Prof. Rodrigo Martins. Zoz asked for it and Martins confirmed. Zoz also complained that the ridiculous plastic fork, which he soon could no longer use in Europe, would not help a single child in Africa. With a thoughtful face, Prof. Martins agreed also to this.

Secret congratulators.

For his comprehensive and critical comment at the beginning of the conference, Zoz earned applause. At first break and from then on, so-called secret congratulations followed. In total, more than 20 participants (including some speakers who in public stated different) spoke to Zoz, thanking him for the “brave, open” words that they could not afford themselves.

Right to the beginning, however, a massive counter-critic, quite rude and grumpy came to Zoz. He (Radu Ionicioiu) introduced himself as a quantum physicist and claimed that Zoz has “no idea”. After Mr. Ionicioiu (according to conference proceedings works in an EU flagship in Romania) then even was unable to pass the simple quick test “north-pole melting away” (anomaly H2O), he admitted, that he himself “has no idea”. However, Zoz shall believe those who know better. When Zoz asked, who that is, the answer parodied: “the professionals”.

“Deeply impressed” Zoz finished this Intermezzo, and it should come even better.

Either believe or go to jail.

The speaker after the presentation by Zoz was Mr. Bert de Colvenaer from Belgium, who according to the conference guide entertains a “Public Private Partnership” there, presumably collecting public/EU-funds. He changed his introduction obviously with regard to the previous, as always also subject-critical lecture by Zoz. In fact he started by claiming that those people who would dare to question a man-made climate change, belong into jail.

Zoz could not believe what he heard and right away asked Chairman Barend Verachters, Deputy Head of Biotechnology of the European Commission, who was sitting next to him on the podium. Verachters answered, that he had not understood exactly. Thus, still on stage, Zoz asked Mr. de Colvenaer immediately after the lecture: “Did you really say, that I belong into jail because I consider the climate nonsense to be hocus-pocus ?!” De Colvenaer seemed quite tense and did “bleat” a clear confirmation.

Zoz further asked if de Colvenaer would consider himself as a Democrat and if he knows anything about tolerance. No further answer was to be recognized.

Conclusion: no EU needs such people.

Conclusion by Prof. Zoz: “it is a pity that the principal and good goal of the conference does not seem to be in focus, but apparently everything that is somehow steerable, has to enter the climate-war. After all, the number of secret congratulators is increasing. Unfortunately, this does not necessarily mean, that those are becoming more. It could also mean that fewer consider their support, albeit in secret, as more and more important.

Conclusion: prison threat, nano-event and gender.

To claim, “Prof. Zoz belongs into jail because…”, that was not a threat but an expression of opinion. With respect to the freedom of expression, this is to be accepted, even if blunder would emanate from a minion of public funds. It is truly regrettable, that a basically excellent event, which makes no sense without different opinions thus could not result in a profitable discourse, is devalued by qualitatively less good contributions.

Furthermore, the nano-event ENF should not be converted into gender hocus-pocus, however, this could also be a misunderstanding. Insofar please refer to the subtitle of the penultimate image row.
