Hearts of Darkness: Richest Nations Push Unreliable Renewables to Keep Africans Forever Poor — STOP THESE THINGS

There’s something altogether cynical about well-healed nations forcing the impoverished to embrace expensive and unreliable wind and solar. It is, of course, all done in the name of ‘saving the planet’. [Note to Ed: Not to mention saving the manufacturers of industrial wind turbines and solar panels, who are struggling back home]. As any economist […]

Same CO2 but ‘greener’ label for proposed UK petrol change — Tallbloke’s Talkshop

E10 petrol still emits carbon dioxide (CO2) when burned, just as biomass fuelled power stations do. So if there really was a ‘climate emergency’ this proposed change would have zero immediate effect on it. The report claims E10 ‘contains less carbon and more ethanol than fuels currently on sale’, but that’s negligible. What happens is […]

Scorched Earth Policy: Entire Forests Being Clear-Felled To Make Way For Mega-Wind Turbines — STOP THESE THINGS

In one breath the wind industry and its acolytes talk about “saving the planet”, in the next they’re destroying it, wholesale. Millions of birds, bats and bugs are being wiped out with impunity. And millions of acres of forest have been treated with the same malicious contempt. In Scotland, since 2000, the wind industry has […]

NOAA Relies on ‘Russian Collusion’ to Claim January Was Hottest Month on Record — Watts Up With That?

Other data shows the USA wasn’t even close to a record. By Anthony Watts In a report generating substantial media attention this month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) claimed January 2020 was the hottest January on record. In reality, the claim relies on substantial speculation, dubious reporting methods, and a large, very suspicious,…

Setting It Straight: Nuclear Power Sets the Gold Standard For Safe & Reliable Power Generation — STOP THESE THINGS

The French get 85% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much as a scratch since they started in 1962. By contrast, the wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 190 fatalities, so far (eg, […]

On The Beach: Whales Deafened By Offshore Wind Turbine Noise Die Stranded Onshore — STOP THESE THINGS

The wind industry has been slaughtering millions of birds, bats and insects for years; and offshore it’s been killing off whales and dolphins, as well. Energy power generation system takes its toll on the environment, but it’s only the wind industry that claims moral superiority over all others. That tenuous claim – which rests on […]

Wind Industry Wipeout: Wind Turbines Killing Millions of America’s Bats: Endangered Species Under Threat — STOP THESE THINGS

The wind industry claims a virtuous, moral superiority, but the millions of birds and bats that it slaughters each year, no doubt, think otherwise. If wind power proponents weren’t so arrogant and sanctimonious, the fact that their beloveds slice and dice countless birds and bats and crush millions of tonnes of beneficial insects each year […]

The Intellectual and Moral Decline in Academic Research — The Wentworth Report

The Intellectual and Moral Decline in Academic Research, by Edward Archer. My experiences at four research universities and as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) research fellow taught me that the relentless pursuit of taxpayer funding has eliminated curiosity, basic competence, and scientific integrity in many fields. Yet, more importantly, training in “science” is now […]

Peer Review Is Bunk — Big Picture News, Informed Analysis

A report I wrote for the Global Warming Policy Foundation was released today. It explains that peer-reviewed research is as likely to be wrong as right. Basing public policy on findings that haven’t yet been reproduced is nuts.
