Anybody who looks with a critical eye at the madcap push toward increasing amounts of intermittent renewable electricity generation in the U.S. and Europe quickly realizes that eventually this has to hit a wall. But when will the crunch come? Theoretically, with 100% fossil fuel backup you can keep an electricity system of majority renewables functioning indefinitely, albeit with consumers bearing the unnecessary costs of two fully redundant generating systems. But then politicians pledge to reduce and then eliminate the fossil fuel backup, and by dates that are rapidly approaching. Backup plants get closed and decommissioned. For how much longer can this really keep going?

Albert Einstein would almost certainly have been a global warming skeptic if he were alive today. Many distinguished, contemporary scientists are skeptics too.
We are lucky that Einstein left a rich legacy of pithy quotes that reveal how he would probably relate to today’s cult of global warming alarmists.
Take the oft repeated propaganda that 97 percent of scientists support global-warming alarmism.
Quite aside from the falseness of the claim, Einstein would have remembered the famous attack on himself, “A Hundred Scientists Against Einstein,” published in Germany in 1931. His response was, “If I were wrong, one would have been enough.”
His view of groupthink was summarized in another comment: “In order to be a member of a flock of sheep, one must, above all, be a sheep oneself!” Continue reading “Would Einstein be a global warming skeptic if alive today?”

For 26 futile years, the net-zero maniacs have wasted fuel, energy and taxpayer’s money to bite the hands that provide their food, energy, welfare and public sector jobs.
Led by EU and AUKUS dreamers, they destroy reliable energy from coal, oil, nuclear, gas and hydro while forcing us to subsidise net-negative dreams like solar, wind, wave-power, CCUS, hot rocks, pumped hydro and hydrogen. All such speculative ventures should be funded by speculators, not taxpayers.
COP-Out-26 illustrates to the realists of China, Russia, India and Brazil that the West has lost its marbles and is in terminal decline. For Scott Morrison to surrender Australia to these green wolves betrays an army of miners, farmers, truckies and workers in primary, secondary and tertiary industries that support him and his Canberra pack.

The Saltbush Club, Australia’s defenders of coal, cattle and cars, says that PM Morrison should not attend COP26 unless he also takes some high-energy Australian black coal to show the energy-starved Europeans the best source of stored solar energy.
(In 2017, Scott Morrison took a lump of black coal into the Australian Parliament to show those members wearing green goggles what a real solar energy storage battery looked like.)

November’s Climate Alarm meeting (COP 26) should be shifted from Glasgow in Scotland to Reykjavík in Iceland.
Twenty-five previous meetings of this very expensive travel club have achieved nothing useful, having wasted millions of dollars while industries are destroyed, CO2 levels continue to grow and global temperatures go nowhere.
These climate tourists gather in plush hotels for parties, eats and drinks, propose more destructive energy policies for the Western World, agree to meet again, and then fly home.
Holding the next meeting in Iceland would give them three useful lessons. Continue reading “SHIFT COP 26 TO ICELAND”
The Greens are promoting Fake Meats,
With claims that our cattle make heat.
But fake meat was not liked
And meat prices were hiked,
So the Greens promptly lost all their seats.
Based on the article Logistics and Costs for Australia to Achieve Net Zero Carbon Dioxide Emissions by 2050 by Kenneth Schultz (at https://wattsupwiththat.com/2021/07/10/logistics-and-costs-for-australia-to-achieve-net-zero-carbon-dioxide-emissions-by-2050/), G.M. Derrick has developed a checklist for the progress. Click the image to see the PDF version.

The reality is that climate is a hugely variable and hopelessly complicated thing, that it is actually meaningless to attempt to identify anthropogenic climate change through climate events like floods or droughts.” – (Professor Stewart Franks) https://ipa.org.au/wp-content/uploads/archive/Franks_article.pdf
Contrary to available evidence, a number of media outlets and vested-interest groups seem determined to attribute any extreme weather event, including droughts, to human-induced climate change.
Those deceitful individuals who promote climate alarmism for personal gain know full-well that most politicians and members of the public have little scientific understanding and will swallow much of the climate nonsense served up by media reporters who care little for evidence whilst thriving on alarmism. It would appear that the many vested interest groups who promote climate alarm will dismiss any evidence that refutes such alarmism.
The inevitable global occurrence of droughts provides a typical example where media hype promotes the view that any dry spell of any significance is a consequence of the trivial anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions that are adding to the already trivial 400 ppm of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

“Climate Change – in search of a signal” by – Professor Stewart Franks:
Dr. John Happs M.Sc.1st Class; D.Phil. John has an academic background in the geosciences with special interests in climate, and paleoclimate. He has been a science educator at several universities in Australia and overseas and was President of the Western Australian Skeptics for 25 years.
The new Climate Consensus is just a junk keyword survey.
Climate change is a branch of science that’s immature, complex, and has error bars a hundred miles wide. If 99% of scientists say the same thing, it’s a cult, not a science. The climate is not man-made but the irrelevant consensus surely is.
By studying words in industry publications, Mark Lynas thinks he’s discovered a scientific truth. Instead he has just shown that skeptics get purged from peer review. It’s official now, 99% of peer reviewed articles have to say they believe in order to get published.

If you agree that the Prime Minister should not go to the COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow (31 October to 12 November 2021), please add your name to the DO NOT GO TO GLASGOW letter at www.PeopleForScientificIntegrity.com or click on the illustration below. If you are able to invite others to follow your example, that would be excellent.
