MEMO TO THE MEDIA : Glacier Calving Is A Natural Process

ICEBERG MACHINE - CLIMATISM.png


THE iceberg that recently calved off a Greenland glacier and spectacularly parked itself outside the tiny village of Innaarsuit has caused the usual mainstream media heads to explode with man-made global warming climate change, again, lazily fingered as the culprit in order to facilitate the CAGW brainwashing process…

“Extreme iceberg break-ups risk becoming more frequent because of climate change, some experts have warned.”

THE Innaarsuit Iceberg (Greenland)

THE fact that the iceberg has settled itself outside the tiny village of Innaarsuit may be of definite concern, if it decides to flip causing a tidal surge. But, to blame global warming…

How Much CO2 Gets Emitted to Build a Wind Turbine?

STOP THESE THINGS

turbine base

The ONLY justification for wind power – the massive subsidies upon which it entirely depends (see our post here); spiralling power prices (see our post here); and the suffering caused to neighbours by incessant low-frequency noise and infrasound (see our post here) – is the claim that it reduces CO2 emissions in the electricity sector.

STT has pointed out – just once or twice – that that claim is nothing more than a central, endlessly repeated lie.

Because wind power fails to deliver at all hundreds of times each year, 100% of its capacity has to be backed up 100% of the time by fossil fuel generation sources – which run constantly in the background to balance the grid and prevent blackouts when wind power output collapses – as it does on a routine, but unpredictable, basis (see our posts here and here and here and

Why Coal Miners, Oil and Gas Producers Simply Love Wind Power

STOP THESE THINGS

coalminevn Coal miners just love wind power.

****

The wind industry parades as an “alternative” energy source. Which begs the question: “alternative” to what?

The lunatics from the hard-green left (like “Greens” head-muppet, Christine Milne) continually whine that “coal is DEATH“; and wax lyrical about the fantasy of going “100% renewable” – all the while pocketing $millions in campaign funding from the party’s wind industry backers (see our post here).

muppets-miss-piggy Christine Milne, snacks out on the wind industry expense account.

****

Economic lunatics, like Milne are wedded to the delusion that there really is a choice between powering nations with hundreds of thousands of giant fans (carpeting every last square mile of other peoples’ back yards) and coal or gas fired plant, that comfortably fit on the back of a figurative “envelope”; and, as they’re usually placed in industrial zones, rarely trouble anyone.

CLIMATE CHANGE Alarmist Myths Unearthed OCEAN ACIDIFICATION


“CLIMATE alarmism is a gigantic fraud: it only survives by suppressing dissent and by spending tens of billions of dollars of public money every year on pseudo-scientific propaganda.” – Leo Goldstein

CLIMATISM TOP 10 ALARMIST MYTHS – Intro

EXCESSIVE or exaggerated alarm about a real or imagined threat is fundamental in driving the human CO2-induced global warming climate change narrative.

THE most popular climatic and weather-related events, as marketed by the Climate Crisis Industry, fall well within the bounds of natural variability. So, in order for such events to make the headlines, attract taxpayer funding for ‘research’, and advance the misanthropic, man-made climate change agenda, they must be accompanied by inflated language, an urgent tone, imagery of doom, and in many cases, fraudulent data.

IN this series we take an objective/sceptical look at ten of the more popular metrics used by warming alarmists to push…

TOP 10 Climate Change Alarmist Myths Unearthed : #2 SEA LEVEL RISE

 

#2. SEA LEVEL RISE

“THE Seas Are Rising”! You’ve read it, seen it and heard about it just about everywhere in conjunction with the climate change debate. However, the very statement “rising sea levels” is deceptive from the start.

SEA-levels both rise and fall depending on where you are on the planet. Absolute sea-level varies from negative to positive to stable depending on a range of regional factors including: local vertical land motion, land use, salinity, regional ocean circulations, ocean heat content and tidal variations…

REMEMBER the “sinking” Pacific Island nations…

THE climate-theory-obsessed mainstream media has gleefully pawned the emotional link between climate change and ‘sinking’ tropical islands to push their man-made global warming agenda…

“The tiny pacific island nation of Tuvalu looks set to become a victim of global warming, with the entire country predicted to be washed away in 50 years.” (BBC 2002)

TUVALU’s plight even formed part of the basis for arguably the most hysterical fake news claim in the history of climate alarmism: the UN’s prediction that by the end of 2010, climate change would have created50 million environmental refugees”!

CLIMATISM, along with the climate sceptic “denier” community have been citing actual scientific data and empirical observations that have consistently contradicted the hysterical claims made by the mainstream media of “drowning island nations” for years…

Wind Power: World’s Greatest Joke – UK Left Powerless During the ‘Big Calm’

STOP THESE THINGS

The greatest joke ever played on the world is the idea that the wind can – and will soon completely – power modern economies.

When the wind disappears for days and even weeks on end, those that promote it tend to get twitchy and change the subject.

Sometimes it’s mutterings about mega-batteries (that don’t exist) or pumping water uphill using electricity from (don’t tell them this part) coal-fired power plants to later deliver hydropower to plug those ever-yawning wind power gaps.

If either giant batteries or pumped hydro were economic, they wouldn’t need buckets of taxpayer’s money. The same is, of course, true of intermittent and unreliable wind power.

As sailors and kite-flyers well-know, planning your progress and/or amusement around the weather leads to mixed results.

Just how intermittent and unreliable the wind can be has been revealed (again) across the UK over the last month or so.

Thirty Years Of Failed Climate Predictions – the video — Watts Up With That?

On June 23 1988, NASA’s James Hansen testified before Congress and made very specific predictions about global warming. In this video I show how he got them exactly backwards, and how scientists and journalists continue to spread baseless misinformation.
