Educating Kids to Debate Alarming Climate Claims

Important new project provides videos and short non-technical issue briefs for students

By Paul Driessen

It’s time to challenge the steady diet of bias, false information and alarmism on climate change that students are fed in and outside of their classrooms. Science and public policy analyst Dr. David Wojick has launched an important new project to do exactly that.

From kindergarten onward, our young people are repeatedly told that they, our wildlife and our planet face unprecedented cataclysms from manmade climate change, resulting from our fossil fuel use. The science is settled, they are constantly hoodwinked, and little or no discussion is allowed in classrooms. Continue reading “Educating Kids to Debate Alarming Climate Claims”

Climatic Impacts of the Southwest Indian Ocean Blob

By Wyss Yim

The University of Hong Kong

Patches of abnormally hot seawater beneath the ocean surface referred to as Blobs are naturally generated by submarine volcanic eruptions. A recent example is the North Pacific Blob1 which caused weird weather conditions accompanied by major ecological changes in the Pacific northeast including two years without winters in 2013 and 20142. This was featured as a ‘heat wave’ in the September 2016 issue of National Geographic and was used to support the anthropogenic global warming alarm. However, based on the study of available information including satellite and ARGO data buoy records, the release of geothermal heat from the Nishinoshima volcanic eruption 940 km south of Tokyo3 from March 2013 to August 2015 was identified the culprit4,5.

Brisbane too Hot to Handle?

By Viv Forbes

The warmist ABC recently trumpeted a forecast (from an unproven academic model) that global warming and urban heat will make Brisbane too hot for many residents within 30 years.

But what about people in Darwin and Cooktown right now – should they migrate to Brisbane?

GREEN ZEALOTS, GOLDEN RICE AND THE PREVENTABLE DEATHS OF BABIES AND CHILDREN

Beneath the thin veneer of concern about all life on Earth, it would appear that many of those who claim to care for the environment actually do more harm than good.

Many of the Green Zealots also have little regard for humans. Millions of lives could be saved if activist groups, such as Greenpeace and GE-Free New Zealand, did not oppose the genetically modified strain of rice known as “Golden Rice.”

Scientists have produced “Golden Rice” to address Vitamin A deficiency and related deaths so common amongst the poor in developing countries. These are people who cannot afford to eat a varied and balanced diet that would give them the essential nutrients they need.

The distribution and consumption of “Golden Rice” would address the Vitamin A deficiency problem and save countless lives. Unfortunately there are those who actively oppose and prevent this.

Battery Storage – An Infinitesimal Part of Electrical Power

hybrid battery storageBattery Storage-An Infinitesimal Part of Electrical Power

By Steve Goreham

Originally published in Energy Central.

Large-scale storage of electricity is the latest proposed solution to boost the deployment of renewables. Renewable energy advocates, businesses, and state governments plan to use batteries to store electricity to solve the problem of intermittent wind and solar output. But large-scale storage is only an insignificant part of the electrical power industry and doomed to remain so for decades to come.

The Australian Climate Alarm Election

by Viv Forbes & Dr Geoff Derrick
22 May 2019

The ALP-Greens-ABC-GetUp-Turnbull-CFMEU-Fairfax alliance ran hard in Australia’s recent climate alarm election – they lost.

So let us see no more anti-coal motorcades, hear no more climate propaganda and replace Pied Piper Street Processions with hard science education. The new government must also stop blatant promotion of green energy with targets, subsidies and carbon taxes, and focus on infrastructure catch-up.

Forecasts of doom are frequent, and they fail just as frequently.

An Invitation From John Shanahan (All About Energy) – Call for Poems

Dear friends and colleagues for sound energy, radiation science, nuclear medicine and climate science policies.

I’ve been working for public education about sound energy and climate science for more than ten years. During that time two people sent me poems. Both poems are amazing, powerful and good for the public.

1) USA – High school student Mary Clair Birdsong about nuclear energy pioneer, Ted Rockwell.

2) Australia – Viv Forbes, Executive Director of the Saltbush Club – “Freezing in Green Heaven” – about wind, solar and coal energy

This is an invitation to you to write a short poem about the problems we face regarding sound energy, radiation science, nuclear medicine and climate science. You can see what Mary Claire Birdsong and Viv Forbes have done. What can you or one of your colleagues do? We will post these poems on the website  allaboutenergy.net.

We will have a special edition of our newsletter dedicated to poems. Continue reading “An Invitation From John Shanahan (All About Energy) – Call for Poems”

A Wall of Blackouts

by Jerry Ellis and Sir Rod Carnegie 20 February 2019

The Chairman of the Saltbush Club, Mr Jerry Ellis, today warned that Australia needs more reliable baseload power.

“With the population and the economy growing, but with electricity availability and reliability in decline, we are racing headlong into a brick wall of blackouts.

“Recession and disruption will probably follow, bringing to mind those memorable 1990 words of Paul Keating: ‘This is the recession we had to have’. Except in this case the recession will be self-inflicted. Continue reading “A Wall of Blackouts”

Unreliable Energy

By Brendan Godwin

The inclusion of unreliable energy sources such as wind and solar (“The Unreliables”) in our supply grids is causing massive fluctuations in electricity dispatch costs from $50-$100/MWh to $14,000/MWh and up to $60,000/MWh in South Australia in the Jan 2019 heat wave (Judith Sloan The Australian Jan 29, 2019) and see the graph below. This ultimately falls on consumer bills. Additionally, the locations for all of these unreliable generation sites are far from current transmission networks and new transmission lines have to be built and footprint cost and capacity factors have to be taken into account. People pushing for “The Unreliables” don’t factor these costs into their costings and neither do government pricing models. Nor do they include all of the subsidies paid to “The Unreliables” plus the state royalties on coal that forced Hazelwood’s closure.
