Burning the environment to save it

What a weird and wondrous story about saving the environment a detailed investigation of the conversion of the Drax power station to bio-mass fueling (mostly wood chips) would make.  Who is behind that one and who profits the most, the owners, the accountants, the politicians or perhaps the media? Even Wikipedia must be considered to be part of the media. It cannot be trusted to tell the truth on environmental issues.  It does not even mention that Drax is now being partially powered by wood chips imported from places such as the US and produced by mining vast tracts of land for trees (although Wikipedia’s main article on the Drax … Continue reading

Global-warming alarmism – is it dead yet?

Are we seeing the death of global-warming alarmism?  The IPPC’s newest Climate assessment report (AR5) is due to be released this month.  Searching the Internet for that will produce some articles even in the main-stream media. It is obvious that the IPPC has not been able to find evidence of continuing global warming trends.  The warming trend that the IPPC and its camp followers have been tauting for all these years came to a halt close to 17 years ago and appears unlikely to resume any time soon, while the alleged culprit, atmospheric CO2, has been steadily on the rise.  It is at best difficult to avoid the conclusion that … Continue reading

Property in flood-prone areas of Alberta

Property in flood-prone areas of Alberta A large number of Alberta residents are very busy right now trying to clean up after the flooding in southern Alberta, floods that affected flood-prone areas before and will affect them again.  Fortunately, the flooding did not cause much loss of life (there were three fatalities), but there may be more losses of that nature, although not directly.  Some officials already expressed fears that areas from which the flood waters have begun to recede will not necessarily be safe to enter, that they could well pose hazards to the health of people entering them. The people who sustained damages to their properties will perhaps … Continue reading

Southern Alberta still flooding

Southern Alberta still flooding Today’s Edmonton Journal has extensive coverage of the flooding in Southern Alberta, and, of course, as one would expect, the politicians of all parties as well as NGOs, especially the environmentalist kind, are weighing in with their opinions on how such things are “the new norm”, a “911 call” and more.  (Photos of the Southern Alberta flooding: Calgary) They say that all of the flooding is “the new norm” and imply that the Government (that is, other taxpayers) must take care of the consequences, first and foremost prevention of re-occurences. Well, the only thing that is really new about any of this is that people have … Continue reading

Killing-off North Carolina’s State RPSs

Killing-off North Carolina’s State RPSs By John Droz (via e-mail) Friends: This is not an April Fool’s email! Please go here to read AWED’s latest Energy & Environmental Newsletter. (If that link is busy try this.) Our newsletter should be at MasterResource every third Monday. —————- My focus at the moment is to try to repeal North Carolina’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) known as Senate Bill 3. To fix SB3, some citizen-oriented legislators wrote the NC Affordable and Reliable Energy Act: H298 [and S365]. This is a long story (good NC citizens have been working on this for about a year and a half), but there is a very good chance that H298 will pass. If so, NC will … Continue reading

Was there ever a good reason to worry over global warming?

Was there ever a good reason to worry over global warming? So, now that the global average temperatures have stagnated over the last 16 years (21 years as of 2018), is there still any cause for alarm? I suppose there would be if the long-term temperature trend were rising, but it is? How about the last 100 years, the last 1000, 10,000, 100,000, million, 100-million or even the last 4.5 billion years? What has the trend been, in general? Legend of acronyms used for the trend lines in the preceding graph: GISP: Greenland Ice Sheet Project GISP2: The follow-up U.S. GISP2 project Moberg: “Highly variable Northern Hemisphere temperatures reconstructed from low- … Continue reading

Africans Helping Freezing Norwegian Kids

Africans Helping Freezing Norwegian Kids From Jo Nova’s blog: Lewandowsky, Cook claim 78,000 skeptics could see conspiracy survey at Cooks site where there is no link » That is a good article, but this next blog entry is the clincher. Radi-Aid: Africa helps freezing children in Norway This is the Easter Spirit! (link to 3.5 min video) Gotta love it. Right! That’s the way to go!  Let the underdeveloped nations make fun of our obsession with trying to make man-made CO2 emissions (on average 3.5% of total annual global emissions — the rest is from natural sources) into a global climate thermostat.

Great Global Warming Swindle film tells truth

The Register [U.K.] Monday 21st July 2008 Climate Swindle film: bruised egos, but no offence So says Ofcom By Andrew Orlowski British regulator Ofcom has rejected complaints that the popular polemical film, The Great Global Warming Swindle, misled viewers. The regulator said it was paramount that the public received alternative points of view – even if these were not endorsed by institutions or the major political parties…. The hour-long programme, directed and narrated by Martin Durkin, was screened in March 2007, and has subsequently become a hit on DVD. Environmental activists blame the film, and the broadcaster Channel 4, for undermining public confidence in the theory that human CO2 emissions … Continue reading
