Green Energy Train To Energy Poverty

The Claim: Europe and Australia are benefiting from their green energy policies. We should follow their example.

The Facts: The Ice Cap blog refutes that claim in a posting titled:“Green Energy Train To Energy  Poverty”.

Joseph D’Aleo shows that green energy is pricing the Europeans out of a number of markets and is wreaking real damage on their poorer citizens.

Two of the many  charts that  D”Aleo uses to make his case are as follows:



And the following chart equates the amount of installed wind and solar renewable energy with the cost of electricity:

Global Temperature Anomaly Rose, In August, to +0.41C

It seems that the global temperature as  measured by the UAH satellite is not going down at the rate most expected.  The ENSO meter shows a cooling temperature, finally.  But I doubt that anyone is going to call it an La Nina.         The August global temperature anomaly is +41C.

(Chart and table are from Dr Roy Spencer’s posting

Reviewing the table above , August 2017 is nearly a match with Aug 201. August last year was recorded at the time the EL Nino temperatures were on the rise.


Resubmitting “Why Are We Told The Globe Is Heating Up If The US Is Not?”

I received a comment from BillD  that the Charts on the posting noted above were to blurry to read..  So, my bad.   Here are better charts to replace the three chart from the original blog. ccbdakota

Global Weather Disasters Are Down Despite The Increase In Atmospheric CO2

The world is presently in an era of unusually low weather disasters. This holds for the weather phenomena that have historically caused the most damage: tropical cyclones, floods, tornadoes and drought. Given how weather events have become politicized in debates over climate change, some find this hard to believe. Fortunately, government and IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) analyses allow such claims to be adjudicated based on science, and not politics.”      

The above is a statement by Roger Pielke, jr.  It is important to note that he cites the IPCC’s  bible of catastrophic man-made global warming. Their bible says there is no proven connection between severe weather events and global warming.  Pielke, jr. is not a skeptic—he is a warmer.

Pielke, Jr. points out the gap between facts and what the alarmists tell the public.

As a skeptic, I am continually frustrated by how successful the alarmist and their cohort, the media, have been in selling the public with bombast.  The media, because they know crisis sells newspapers or because they are, by and large pro big government, have done wonders squelching the actual data.

The Water’s So Hard . . .

I liked this one. Think maybe some of you will as well.

Cat Rotator's Quarterly

How hard is it?

You get bruises taking a shower.

It’s the minerals that hurt when you belly flop into the pool.*

Such mild exaggerations are part and parcel of English language humor, especially what I think of as rural humor.
