Prominent physicist warns that wind power “fails on every count” — NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
By Paul Homewood I thoroughly recommend reading this report. It is only three pages long and is succinct: London, 23 March – A prominent physicist has warned that the UK is facing the likelihood of a failure in the electricity supply and calls for a reset of national energy policy. Professor Wade Allison, […]Prominent physicist warns that wind power “fails on every count” — NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
Urban Heat Effect – re-post from 2016

Claim 7. Temperatures have risen faster in recent years than ever before.
Truth: Remember that there is no such thing as a global temperature. It is the average of all of the reporting stations all over the world. The rapid rise in temperatures in the 1990s directly coincides with a decrease in the number of Siberian weather stations reporting due to the break-up of the Soviet Union.

Additionally, the “hottest year on record”, 1998, was an El Nino year so it was naturally hotter than the years just before and after. Another “cause” of rising average global temperatures is the urban heat island effect. Cities are hotter than rural areas. Many of the reporting stations that were once in undeveloped rural areas have experienced either suburban or urban development, or the stations have been moved to more urban settings. It is well documented that some have been, seemingly intentionally, relocated near or at heat sources such as paved parking lots and air conditioners.
One reason for relocation near buildings or other structures could be that new automatic-reporting equipment needs to be connected by cable. Rather than dig up parking lots or roads to install units in a grassy or protected area, many have opted to locate them where they can be directly connected without involving costly excavation, although such sites do not meet the stated requirements. Instead of excluding data from stations that are poorly situated, a convoluted mathematical algorithm (scheme) is used to “correct” it to presumed pre-industrial levels. See illustrations below.
Urban area plus mathematical correction algorithm equals pristine nature

Proposed rating of reporting stations with regard to surroundings:

Eventually, all of this will lead to an estimation of how much of the land warming (say, since 1880) has been spurious due to the Urban Heat Island effect.

The bird carcasses soon pile up wherever the wind industry plies its subsidy-soaked trade. When it comes to wholesale avian slaughter, the offshore industry sets the benchmark. Offshore wind is already meting out a phenomenal death toll on a whole range of seabirds in the waters surrounding Britain and across the North Sea. Puffins are […]‘Green’ Energy Slaughter: Offshore Wind Turbines Wiping Out Puffins, Gulls, Gannets & More — STOP THESE THINGS
