Solar Doesn’t Work Under Two Feet Of Snow

At 37.9% of the total European commitment and at a capital cost of ~€200 billion Germany is the leader of Renewable Energy promotion and installation in Europe. But comparatively its investment in Renewables has been both the most expensive and also the least efficient overall.

This is primarily because of its excessive commitment, more than 50% of its installed Renewables, to Solar Photovoltaic power.

Germany has made these investments in the expectation that that its “Energiewende Energy Transition” policy would make the country a world leader in advances in Renewables. This optimistic approach is not being justified.

Onshore wind power in Germany accounts for ~35% of its massive Renewable investment but about half of its Renewable electricity output. German wind power operates at a relatively low level of capacity at ~18% or even less. Unsurprisingly Germany has almost the highest installation of Renewables / head of the European population, except for Denmark.

Large scale photovoltaics have cost some ~64% of Germany’s Renewable investment. But because of Germany Northern latitude and its often cloudy skies, photovoltaics operate with a capacity factor a capacity factor of only ~9%. As a result overall Germany’s renewables operate at an overall capacity factor of less than 14%.

In addition Germany, by policy, is withdrawing from Nuclear electricity generation after the Fukushima tsunami. As a result Germany is now installing coal fired generating plant as rapidly as possible to maintain base load power. These new plants burn either lignite, (the most polluting type of coal and CO2 emissive fuel), or ordinary coal. These plants have no facility for Carbon Capture and Storage, probably because German engineers have realised that CCS in operation is a costly engineering fallacy. This is a sensible approach because were it to work at all, Carbon Capture and Storage, CCS, can be viewed as a costly way to throw away comparatively miniscule amounts of useful plant food.

In spite of the fact that Renewable Energy output has grown about fourfold, there has been an overall increase of CO2 emissions from Germany since the year 2000.

So far by 2013 Germany had invested very little, less than 1%, in Offshore Wind Power development and its experience has been poor, emphasising the technical difficulties of ever making large scale Offshore power fully operational. Even if large scale Offshore wind power in the North sea were eventually successful there is also a major question about the non existence of suitable high capacity transmission lines across Germany from the North to its Southern industrial heartlands.

It seems incredible that Germany, a Nation with such great engineering and pragmatic prowess, could have become so convinced about Renewable Energy especially the use of Solar Energy to make such a grossly unwise investments.

#Climate Crooks Can’t Handle The Truth

Powerful forces within western elites led by Obama and the Democratic Party have been pushing the AGW myth for decades. They have invested huge amounts of time & money trying to convince the world of their climate alarmist theories. However, with the #Climategate revelations and given the fact their doomsday Climate forecasts have failed to materialize, they have lost significant credibility. Thus they resort to smearing anyone who dares to challenge their disproven by reality dooms day Climate Theories. 


Public opinion polls clearly substantiate that the alarmists continue to lose momentum as public interest and more pressing issue arise like Radical Islamic Terrorism and the realization that their preferred alternatives to fossil fuel (renewables) don’t work most of the time. When there is no sun or wind (or in the case of solar panels under two feet of snow) renewables need a fossil fuel or battery back up to keep the lights on. Moreover, despite billions blown on renewables in Germany Germany can’t keep their lights on without massive Russian Coal imports which are at their highest level since 2006… People have figured out that it is pure insanity to blow billions of tax payer dollars on wind and solar that stop working during those cold winter days under six feet of snow that the Climate Alarmists predicted the world would never see again due to man made global warming. 


The bottom line is the empirical evidence does not support the theory that CO2 emissions from fossil fuel have had a significant impact on climate. The computer climate models that the IPCC uses to promote global warming have ALL failed the test of reality. The Climate models projected temperatures when compared with observed temperatures over the last 18 years are not going up as the Models predicted. And to add insult to injury the divergence between projected temperatures and observed temperatures is INCREASING. When there is NO empirical evidence to support the Alarmists Climate Theory the theory can no longer be called “science” It is a Religion.
Given all of this desperation by the climate alarmists their only recourse is the shabby treatment and smear campaigns of prominent climate scientists who dare to expose their lies. What is even more troubling is that it is the warmists who are the guilty parties when it comes to being on the take for big oil funding. See The Long List Of Warmist Organizations and Scientists Who Haul In Huge Money From BIG OIL And Heavy Industry! Let’s see the Democrats investigate the influence BIG OIL has on Warmists. Money Big Oil would get from Carbon Trading perhaps?



Barack Obama Goes Full Stalin

Best not to freeze to death paying tax payer subsidies to useless solar and wind.

Real Science

The level of Soviet style criminal activity at the White House has reached spectacular new lows. On February 20, The White House sent out this E-mail announcing that they were going to start attacking individual scientists who dissented from the White House global warming agenda.


A few hours later, this E-mail was sent out to a large group of prominent skeptics. The author used a stolen identity of Harvard’s Dr. Willie Soon, and obtained the list of skeptic E-mails via hacking. The E-mail pre-announced an attack by the press on an individual scientist.

Today they sent out another E-mail using Dr. Soon’s stolen identity, pre-announcing newspaper attacks on other prominent skeptics.

ScreenHunter_7393 Feb. 24 07.55

This behavior by the White House, coordinated with the press corps, is straight out of the Stalin era Soviet Union.


It shouldn’t come as a surprise. The White House adopted Soviet era themes from day one.


Any time the White House…

NOAA Caught Cooling The Past

The question is why is NOAA fiddling around with the temperature data so much? Makes one wonder if the data is of any value at all much less be used to make climate and energy policy with.


By Paul Homewood

h/t AC Osborn


NOAA claim that 2014 was the hottest year on record, with global temperatures 1.24F above the 20thC average of 57.0F.

In other words, 58.24F.

This is all very strange, because back in 1997, they said global temperatures were 62.45F!


Now I am quite sure that temperatures have not really dropped by 4 degrees, or else glaciers would by now be advancing over the hill. And I do realise that NOAA and the rest like to talk in anomalies, rather than absolutes.

Nevertheless, if we have got so little idea of what global temperatures are, can we honestly have much confidence in claims of warmest years based on a few hundredths of a degree?

All of this though does raise a much more serious issue. How much of this four degree difference can be explained by ocean temperatures? NOAA did not show the…

Shock News: Government Agencies Are Tampering With Temperature Data

“The New England Glacier”! Dr. Ryan Maue: “Arctic Cold On Lockdown…Brutal”. Global Warming Gets Obliterated! Great Lakes “100% Frozen Over Next Week”!
By P Gosselin on 19. February 2015
If you google “warmer winters”, you’ll find plenty of articles that contain statements like the following:

But scientists say the milder winters also are consistent with global warming caused by the massive buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere due to human activities such as burning oil and coal. The carbon dioxide acts like a greenhouse roof, trapping heat on the Earth’s surface.”

And there are also plenty of articles from earlier on claiming that cold winters with lots of snow would become rare in the future, all in line of course with scientists expected from global warming.

But suddenly the exact opposite is happening, and it is deeply embarrassing the climate experts. The USA is now being gripped by widespread and especially severe cold and snow.

Daily Caller reports that Congress will be investigating US data tampering by NCDC and NASA

Are government climate agencies tampering with climate data to show warming? Some Republicans think so. That’s what California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher says to expect at congressional hearings on climate data tampering.

For years, those skeptical of man-made global warming have argued that government agencies are altering raw temperature data to create a warming trend. Allegations of tampering have increased as satellite temperature readings show much less warming than land and ocean-based weather stations show.

Science blogger Steven Goddard (a pseudonym) has been a major critic of NASA’s and NOAA’s temperature measurements. Goddard points out that NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center makes the present look warmer by artificially cooling past temperatures to show a warming trend.

“NCDC pulls every trick in the book to turn the US cooling trend into warming. The raw data shows…

A climate of hate and a license to kill.

While the UN is dictating the use of useless renewable energy from wind and solar for a carbon free world BP has come out with a new analysis forecasting that fossil fuel will be still king well into the future. One wonders if the UN knows this to be true and is using the we can save earth from those evil humans theme as a cover to tax the hide out of developed Nations so they can take the money and run. Maybe like what happened in Haiti where the $13.5 Billion in Earthquake Recovery funds never got to the people who are still living in tents. The UN Was/Is in charge of that too. Via @nprnews: 5 Years After Haiti’s Earthquake, Where Did The $13.5 Billion Go?


Of late we’ve seen a rash of examples showing just how ugly the face of the cult of environmentalism can be. There’ve been calls for the beheading of skeptics and even a wish that their children should kill them. If you’re fresh to what’s laughably called the climate debate, you’ll probably be appalled by such extremist exhortations to do the type of sick things which would quite comfortably fit into the sort of violence porn uploaded to YouTube for wannabe Jihadis and the like to get their rocks off on. However, if you’ve been following the issue for a few years, you’ll know such repulsive and vile sentiments are far from anything new though they are of late stronger.

In previous years, there’s been suggestions that “deniers” should have the word tattooed on their forehead, the targeting and naming of their children by certain verminous types not only in the real…

Paper Shows Todays Climate Par For Course Hockey Stick Absent

Well, someone finds a well proven 2000 year cooling trend with MWP and RWP.

India must have seen this paper as Obama shuts down U.S.Coal to stop Climate Change India Coal Mine allotment process to start today – to create more jobs and reliable power for people


Why Blow Billions Stopping Non Existent Global Warming?

Climate Alarmists like President Obama want us to believe the dooms day Climate models are a credible justification for shutting down the U.S. Coal industry; Blocking development of the U.S.’s vast natural fossil fuel resources and skyrocketing electricity rates . 
We are expected to ignore the fact that the Climate Model predictions have been proven false by reality.  We are expected to forget the fact that despite the rise in CO2 there has been no global warming for 18 plus years (which is the exact opposite of what the models predicted).

 Than there is the:

Climate Scientists Have Failed To Find That Darn Missing hot spot above the equator; 
Rising sea levels will drown the east and west coast; Not
Arctic and Antarctic are melting; Not
Vanishing Glaciers Not
We’ll never see snow again; Not
Opps Global Warming is causing all that snow What!!!

Moreover the Climate Scientists have no credible explanation for the Little ice age; Medieval warming; and Roman warming. Their models can’t get anything right in the present or the past so why should we their predictions for the future be believed? 

So why don’t the Climate Scientists just admit they were wrong? Why won’t the politicians halt their war on fossil fuel and the poor most impacted by “skyrocketing” fuel prices? No Way they say. Anyone who disagrees with them is a Climate Denier; a Flat Earther; a Bible Thumper; etc etc. Besides, all those dooms day predictions that never materialized are not their fault they exclaim. We didn’t account for ocean variations in the models and dozens of other excuses to explain away the failed Climate Change predictions. In the year 2100 you’ll see we were right. Just hand over your money to us and we can save the earth from Climate Change. 

If the Climate Scientists cannot get the simplest prediction right for the past 20 years, why should they be trusted to predict the future in 2100? The facts are the Climate Scientists  predictions were utterly wrong. Blowing a billion a day for a problem which does not yet exist and never will is nuts. What is most objectionable are the lies, theft and political manipulation by extremist communist groups using the Climate Change faux Science to attack Western democracies.

The below article perhaps best explains the true motivation behind the faux Climate Change Scare;

U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare #IBDEditorials

Economic Systems:
The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.

At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.

Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism.
The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.

Figueres is perhaps the perfect person for the job of transforming “the economic development model” because she’s really never seen it work. “If you look at Ms. Figueres’ Wikipedia page,” notes Cato economist Dan Mitchell:
Making the world look at their right hand while they choke developed economies with their left.

Climate scientists; politicians and climate activists are totally implicit in this psuedo climate science being used to destroy Western Democracies and dooming the poor to death by fuel poverty.
