Dear energy fuels de industrialisation in the UK – John Redwood — NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood h/t Dennis Ambler A welcome voice of common sense! Much of industry needs plentiful supplies of low cost energy. Industry is about transforming basic materials taken from the earth into materials, and then cutting, shaping and assembling these into manufactured goods. Transformation of silica into glass or iron […]

They’re dead wrong of course, and this short humorous video illustrates just what life might be like without the many products and energy […]

Why Politicians Who Don’t Understand the Science of Global Warming Don’t Need to Act. — Watts Up With That?

Guest Opinion: Dr. Tim Ball My last article chastised leaders for their apparent inability to understand or even question the evidence that shows CO2 is causing global warming. I can understand the reluctance to express public opinions about such a complex scientific issue, especially coming from the UN and with such universal acceptance. Well, here…

Earth system models underestimate carbon fixation by plants in the high latitudes — Watts Up With That?

From Nature Communications. Abstract Most Earth system models agree that land will continue to store carbon due to the physiological effects of rising CO2 concentration and climatic changes favoring plant growth in temperature-limited regions. But they largely disagree on the amount of carbon uptake. The historical CO2 increase has resulted in enhanced photosynthetic carbon fixation…

Renewables ‘Transition’ Terminated: With Their Subsidies Slashed, the Honeymoon for Wind & Solar is Over — STOP THESE THINGS

Like a bride jilted at the altar, the wind and solar ‘industries’ are moaning about what could have been.

Nutting-out Nuclear: Why Cost & Reliability Mean Wind & Solar are No Match for Nuclear Power — STOP THESE THINGS

If carbon dioxide gas is your poison, nuclear power is your antidote. STT promotes nuclear power, because it works. For those characters getting jumpy about our so-called climate ‘emergency’, nuclear power has the added benefit of being the only stand-alone power generation source that doesn’t emit CO2 during the process. Quite apart from its safety […]
