Scathing editorial in the Australian rips Al Gore’s new movie and his hype August 1, 2017

Watts Up With That?

Media’s silence of the climate scams

MAURICE NEWMAN, The Australian, August 1, 2017

How lucky to have gatekeepers such as the ABC, SBS and Fairfax Media to protect us from the likes of Climate Depot founder Marc Morano, recently here promoting his documentary Climate Hustle?

Thanks to mainstream media censorship, Morano’s groundbreaking film, which promised a heretical fact-finding journey through the propaganda-laced world of climate change, was denied publicity. Described as “the most dangerous documentary of the year”, Climate Hustle “exposes the myth of the 97 per cent ‘scientific’ consensus, debunks hype about temperature and extreme weather, and introduces viewers to key scientists who have reversed their views and converted to scepticism”.

Fortunately, Al Gore had no difficulty finding the media opportunities Morano couldn’t, to push his apocalyptic movie An Inconvenient Sequel. It continues the scaremongering of Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. Like the first, it’s full of scary weather…

Watts Up With That?

Coal Is Number One

STEPHEN MOORE

July 28, 2017, 12:05 am

Quick: what was the number one source of electricity production in the U.S. during the first half of 2017? If you answered renewable energy, you are wrong by a mile. If you answered natural gas, you were wrong by a tiny amount.

According to the Energy Information Administration, which tracks energy use in production on a monthly basis, the single largest source of electric power for the first half of 2017 was… coal. See chart.

Watts Up With That?

Replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy would inflict major land, wildlife, resource damage

Paul Driessen

Demands that the world replace fossil fuels with wind, solar and biofuel energy – to prevent supposed catastrophes caused by manmade global warming and climate change – ignore three fundamental flaws.

1) In the Real World outside the realm of computer models, the unprecedented warming and disasters are simply not happening: not with temperatures, rising seas, extreme weather or other alleged problems.

2) The process of convicting oil, gas, coal and carbon dioxide emissions of climate cataclysms has been unscientific and disingenuous. It ignores fluctuations in solar energy, cosmic rays, oceanic currents and multiple other powerful natural…

Life on Earth was nearly doomed by too little CO2 July 1, 2017

Watts Up With That?

During the last ice age, too little atmospheric carbon dioxide almost eradicated mankind

Guest Essay by Dennis T. Avery

Aside from protests by Al Gore, Leonardo Di Caprio and friends, the public didn’t seem to raise its CO2 anguish much above the Russians-election frenzy when Trump exited the Paris Climate Accords.

Statistician Bjorn Lomborg had already pointed out that the Paris CO2 emission promises would cost $100 trillion dollars that no one has, and make only a 0.05 degree difference in Earth’s 2100 AD temperature. Others say perhaps a 0.2 degree C (0.3 degrees F) difference, and even that would hold only in the highly unlikely event that all parties actually kept their voluntary pledges.

What few realize, however, is that during the last Ice Age too little CO2 in the air almost eradicated mankind. That’s when much-colder water in oceans (that were 400 feet shallower than today) sucked most…

Oklahoma’s Former Governor: Subsidised Wind Power a Multi-Billion Dollar Mistake June 27, 2017

STOP THESE THINGS

As Mark Twain put it: “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” And, even when the dupe accepts his folly, sorry seems to be the hardest word.

Frank Keating was governor of Oklahoma 1995-2003 and is responsible for its wind power calamity, as he calls it.

Uncharacteristically of a modern politician, Keating taps into that fast disappearing virtue – grace – not only admitting that he was fooled, but sincerely apologising for the harm caused to Okies and their State.

Frank Keating: I signed wind industry tax breaks, and I was wrong
Tulsa World
Frank Keating
25 February 2017

In 2001, when I served as governor of Oklahoma, I signed legislation creating the Zero Emissions Tax Credit for industrial wind energy. The tax credit was designed to give a jump-start to a wind industry in its infancy in Oklahoma at the time. It was…

Wind Power Scandal Explodes & ‘Heads Must Roll’: James Delingpole Lists Britain’s ‘Most Wanted’ June 14, 2016

STOP THESE THINGS

wanted-dead-or-alive

A week or so back, ex-Department of Energy and Climate Change apparatchik, and now head of RenewableUK, Hugh McNeal dropped the mother of all clangers, when talking about the “future” of wind power in Britain (see our post here).

The subsidies for wind power have been slashed and the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers have been attempting to engineer a reprieve, by rebranding fixed and guaranteed payments (of £80 per MWh – more than double current market prices of about £35 per MWh) as “subsidy free contracts” (see our post here).  Not bad for a product with no commercial value.

With that piece of semantic trickery going nowhere, and the wind industry subsidy trough fast emptying, wind power outfits have finally got what they fear most: the opportunity to compete with conventional power generation sources; which is what led Hugh McNeal to his ‘revelation’ that:

James Delingpole: Who Protects Britain’s Birds from the RSPB? June 9, 2016

eagle short-toed Wind turbine ‘saves’ climate change ‘victim’.

James Delingpole, hot on the hypocrisy trail, pops up a fair and reasonable poser: who protects Britain’s birds from its Royal Society for the Protection of Birds? (BTW: We’ve added a few graphics to help James make his point).

RSPB: We must build more bird-chopping eco cruifixes
James Delingpole
Breitbart
26 May 2016

Britain must build thousands more bat-chomping bird-slicing eco crucifixes in order to stave off “dangerous climate change” says the RSPB.

RSPB stands for Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and, no, this is not The Onion.

Yes, Britain’s oldest and biggest ornithological society really has put out a report demanding the erection of yet more avian Cuisinarts – despite swathes of evidence showing that these monstrosities are responsible for killing many millions of birds around the world every year.

Its rationale:

The way that we currently use energy in…

Democrats Continue Their Attack On The US Constitution April 9, 2016

Real Science

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham

The White House continues their attack on free speech, claiming that their abuse of power is for the public good.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) today denounced a subpoena from Attorney General Claude E. Walker of the U.S. Virgin Islands that attempts to unearth a decade of the organization’s materials and work on climate change policy. This is the latest effort in an intimidation campaign to criminalize speech and research on the climate debate, led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and former Vice President Al Gore.

“CEI will vigorously fight to quash this subpoena. It is an affront to our First Amendment rights of free speech and association for Attorney General Walker to bring such intimidating demands against a…

Wind Industry Claims Flying Blades & Crashing Turbines a ‘Landmark & Tourist Attraction’ February 25, 2016

Those daring young men in their flying machines. Machines that were not designed to fly, certainly. ‘Structural liberation’ sounds closer to Alinsky/Lenin/Stalin talk than to political conversation, but what do I know, I’m just a Yank…

STOP THESE THINGS

BladeFailure_Spain Hacienda hit with ‘liberated’ blade in Spain.

****

The number of cases involving collapsing turbines and flying blades (aka “component liberation”) has become so common that, if we were a tad cynical, we would go so far to suggest the possibility of some kind of pattern, along the lines proffered by Mr Bond’s nemesis, Goldfinger: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times it’s enemy action”.

Turbines keep crashing back to earth in frightening numbers – from Brazilto KansasPennsylvaniaGermany and ScotlandDevon and everywhere in between: Ireland has been ‘luckier’ than most (see our posts here and here) and their luck is being enjoyed in Sweden too (see our post here).

A month or so back, Swedes had the pleasure of waking up to the sound of a vertically-challenged 290 tonne, whirling Danish Dervish splattering itself across a country road, fortunately…
