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?

Updated 2019 04 19, to add links to related articles. 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.  … Continue reading

Property in flood-prone areas of Alberta

Updates: 2019 03 27: Added links to related articles 2021 07 17: To update links to Flood Hazard Map Application A large number of Alberta residents who own property in flood-prone areas of Alberta are very busy trying to clean up, after the flooding in southern Alberta, flooding that affected flood-prone areas before and will affect them again.  Clean-up will take work, time and financial resources.  Many will be set back and take years to recover.  Some will not ever recover. Fortunately, the flooding did not cause much loss of life (there were three fatalities).  There may be more losses of that nature, although not directly.  Some officials already expressed … Continue reading

Southern Alberta still flooding

Updated 2019 04 19, to add links to related articles. Southern Alberta still flooding, 2013 06 22 — 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-occurrences. Well, the … 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

Global warming — something worth worrying over?

Update 2018 08 24: Expanded introductory paragraph, added links to related articles. Global warming — something worth worrying over?  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 … Continue reading

Daily DIE WELT Stuns Germany: “Scientists Warn Of Ice Age”

Flagship Daily DIE WELT Stuns Germany: “Scientists Warn Of Ice Age”, Cites New Peer-Reviewed Russian Study. From the article: Mentioning the lethal “100-year, record-smashing” spring cold and snow spreading across Europe over the past month has for the most part been avoided like the plague by Germany’s mainstream media. The silence over the record cold and frost, which has killed thousands and cost billions, has been ear-ringing. Yet some leading dailies are breaking ranks, and have begun to examine the phenomenon critically and openly. For example veteran journalist Ulli Kulke at German flagship daily Die Welt today has stunned the rest of the German mainstream media with a piece titled Scientists warn of … Continue reading

Dr David Evans: Four fatal pieces of evidence

Updated 2019 04 24, to add links to related articles. Dr David Evans: Four fatal pieces of evidence (disproving the anthropogenic global warming nonsense) Dr David Evans lays out four crucial pieces of evidence, and calls for a debate with Prof Andrew Pitman. But the evidence is so unarguably strong for skeptics, we know that the name-calling-team-who-want-our-money will do anything to avoid a public debate. If the evidence is “overwhelming” why are they so unwilling to explain it?  — Jo Nova ….(Full Story ) Dr. David Evans’ commentary begins with: Global warming has become a scam. Let me explain how it works. It has superficial plausibility. Yes, global warming is … Continue reading
