“The data doesn’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations on the data. We’re basing them on the climate models.” – Prof. Chris Folland, Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research “We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms […]
Via Friends of Science, Press Release today. IPCC SR15 Climate Change Report is Based on Faulty Premises that Will Lead to Poor Public Policy says Friends of Science Society in New Rebuttal Friends of Science Society has issued a new report entitled “Faulty Premises = Poor Public Policy on Climate,” rebutting the catastrophic climate claims, the misguided,…
Bush fire hazard from burning wind turbine oils and combustible components is a real problem.
As Australians brace for a searing summer, spare a thought for communities riddled with wind turbines: the perfect incendiary device.
First, we’ll take a look at a few ‘clean’-energy conflagrations in Europe.
Fire destroys wind turbine in the Emsland
Daniel Gonzalez-Tepper and Hermann Hinrichs
14 October 2018
Rhede. In the wind energy park in Rhede, a wind turbine is completely burned down by a fire in a power house. The operating company Windpark Rhede GmbH & Co. KG assumes that the resulting property damage could amount to up to 1.5 million euros. The fire department brought the fire equal to three missions.
According to the police, the fire broke out in the wind farm on Q-way in the northwest of the community at 3 clock on Friday morning. The fire had broken out in or at a machine house and had then spread to the entire plant. As…

We’ve been discussing the sudden rise in UK and European temperatures in the 1990s, and I was reminded about a study undertaken by Clive Best and Euan Mearns looking at the role of cloud cover four years ago:
Clouds have a net average cooling effect on the earth’s climate. Climate models assume that changes in cloud cover are a feedback response to CO2 warming. Is this assumption valid? Following a study with Euan Mearns showing a strong correlation in UK temperatures with clouds, we looked at the global effects of clouds by developing a combined cloud and CO2 forcing model to sudy how variations in both cloud cover  and CO2  data affect global temperature anomalies between 1983 and 2008. The model as described below gives a good fit to HADCRUT4 data with a Transient Climate Response (TCR )= 1.6±0.3°C. The 17-year hiatus in…

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.“ – Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation “Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” […]
It never takes them long to work out that wind power is the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. Eco-zealots have attempted to ram wind and solar power down the throats of Third World governments under the auspices of saving the planet and purportedly with the purpose of dragging millions out of poverty. As the initiated well-know, wind power rates zero on both scores. Pointless and expensive, wind power is a kind of first world disease being spread by UN endorsed lunatics, across the developing world.
In India, solar power is seen as ‘fake electricity’, by those being forced to use it: The Cruel Hypocrisy: West Drops Wind Power as it Forces ‘Fake Electricity’ on the World’s Poor
Now, Indians have branded wind power an outright fraud, too. The calm, and very wet weather that comes with the monsoon…

One of our readers received this circular from his local Tory MEP.
It included news of his visit to Drax:
Highly amused at Mr Procter’s rather naive acceptance of what the spin merchants at Drax had told him, he fired off this letter to the MEP:
And then got this in reply:
In other words, I know it’s all nonsense, but it is the government’s policy, so I’ve got to go along with it!
No doubt, Mr Procter would applaud Matt’s “pioneering” technology if the government told him to!
