Well, well. Another well written article on this scamdle called climate change/global warming. Lets keep shining that bright light on these cockroaches. The profiteers of doom and their alarmist sheeple cannot keep the lies going against the tide of a little something called reality. Here is an excerpt of that article:
You see, the Earth hasn’t warmed in the past 16 or 17 years, even though the production of carbon dioxide has continued apace.
And it is becoming harder and harder for global warming’s cheerleaders on the IPCC to square that circle.
As an increasing number of scientists begin to question the so-called consensus on climate change, the IPCC has pushed harder and harder for ever more dramatic and alarming predictions in AR5. Hence the delay.
Consider just a few recent announcements.
First, there were a few reports on Monday that Arctic sea ice is 60% greater than it was this time last year.
The northern ice cap begins to refreeze in September, so that means the slow shrinkage of Arctic ice may be reversing.
One year of ice growth does not make a trend, but imagine the hysterical headlines if it were the other way around – if the ice cap was 60% smaller.

It appears the reign of the eco-nuts has come to an end in Australia. We should be cautiously hopeful that the new Abbott government will bring an environment of sanity and common sense that seems to have been lost of late. I am so jealous. One day (soon) I hope they’ll be writing similar stories about us crazy canucks.
Clearly, the mood has turned. Three years ago Australians voted to save the planet, make love and then shoot the lights out. Now they want to axe the tax, trash the turbines, did up coal – and then go down with Palmer’s remake of the Titanic.

And on a more lighter note…..
Federal statistics show that the contribution from renewable energy sources continues to decline, compared with conventional carbon-based fuel sources.

Electricity generation from wind turbines and solar panels across Canada dropped more than 14% in the first five months of this year, according to Statistics Canada.
And I don’t think so!
Feed-in tariffs and legislated renewable portfolio standards are key, but there must be stronger efforts to curtail the growth of conventional energy sources, or the share from renewables will continue to drop.”

TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Climatism or global warming alarmism is the most prominent recent example of science being coopted to serve a political agenda, writes Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the in the fall 2013 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.
another excerpt from this journal
Lindzen writes: “Global climate alarmism has been costly to society, and it has the potential to be vastly more costly. It has also been damaging to science, as scientists adjust both data and even theory to accommodate politically correct positions. How can one escape from the Iron Triangle when it produces flawed science that is immensely influential and is forcing catastrophic public policy?”
Escape from climate alarmism will be more difficult than from Lysenkoism, in Lindzen’s view, because Global Warming has become a religion. It has a global constituency and has coopted almost all institutional science. Nevertheless, he believes “the cracks in the scientific claims for catastrophic warming are…becoming much harder for the supporters to defend.”

Germany’s agressive and reckless expansion of wind and solar power has come with a hefty pricetag for consumers, and the costs often fall disproportionately on the poor. Government advisors are calling for a completely new start.
If you want to do something big, you have to start small. That’s something German Environment Minister Peter Altmaier knows all too well. The politician, a member of the center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU), has put together a manual of practical tips on how everyone can make small, everyday contributions to the shift away from nuclear power and toward green energy. The so-called Energiewende, or energy revolution, is Chancellor Angela Merkel’s project of the century.
and here a few extra articles from the archives regarding the Energiewende in Germany.

And a recent article that has Germany’s energy figures from 2012. Fossil fuel plants achieve a capacity factor of 80% or more, nuclear at 94%, solar at 11% and wind at 17%. And still its full steam ahead for Germany and the green enviro nuts.

The Czech government approved a draft law to end support for renewable energy, proposing to stop subsidies for new projects at the end of this year.
The plan was adopted during an extraordinary cabinet session yesterday and is subject to approval by parliament, the government said in a statement on its website.
Subsidies for renewable-power sources, particularly solar plants, have raised prices for Czech energy users in the past three years as the cost is passed on through customer bills.
“The reason for this law amendment is the rising financial burden for electricity consumers,” Prime Minister Jiri Rusnok said in the statement. “It threatens the competitiveness of our industry and raises consumers’ uncertainty about power prices.”
Only hydro, wind and biomass power plants that got construction permits this year will be eligible for support if they’re completed before the end of 2014, the statement shows.
