Growing Criticism: Germany’s Transition To Renewable Energy Is Leading To All Pain And No Gain

Growing Criticism: Germany’s Transition To Renewable Energy Is Leading To All Pain And No Gain

And a project that involves the such can only be called one thing: really dumb. Before other countries dive into renewable energies, drunk on green fantasies, they should take a look at what is happening in Germany. Indeed, sobriety helps. The online Die Welt had a piece on the spiraling electricity costs in Germany a […]

Poland, Czech Republic To Block Out Germany’s Unstable Green Electricity – “Coal To Play A Major Role A Lot Longer”

Some big energy developments in Germany lately. Several readers pointed out an article appearing in the online daily Die Welt here. It seems that Eastern Europe has said “no” to hugely subsidized, unstable German green electricity flowing across the border into their power grids. One reason is because Germany still has not installed the huge power […]

Higher CO2 Concentrations Will Feed A Billion More People

Ed Caryl today presents the latest of his essays. This one on CO2 and plant growth. ========================================== What Should We Do About CO2 Emissions?

German Scientists Shoot Down Recent Claims Of “Rapid Warming” In Antarctica – Overall Continent Is Cooling!

If you can’t find any real warming on the planet (which scientists haven’t been able to do now for 15 years), then you have to make up something that looks like warming, i.e. create dummy warming. This is precisely the case with a new paper on Western Antarctica. ========================================== Western Antarctica warms more quickly than […]

University Of Graz “Death To Deniers!” Professor Richard Parncutt Calls For The Execution Of Pope Benedict

German/Austrian Academia Descends Into Madness – A Reaction To Parncutt’s Death Penalty Calls For Science Critics

Parts of European academia have obviously lost their marbles, as one apparently crazed professor has called for the death penalty for people who disagree with the IPCC dogma. Call it an interesting case of budding extreme fanaticism. University of Graz professor calls for the death penalty for people who question the IPCC. ======================================== Dire tones […]

German Media Portray Yesterday’s Record High Temperature In Germany As Ominous Sign Of Global Warming

This December for much of Germany and Central Europe has been a pretty cold month so far, with lots of snow and cold weather.

I noticed Google Germany today is wishing everyone a “Frohes Fest” (Happy Holidays), and not “Merry Christmas”. I guess some prefer blurring the origins of Christmas and the very foundations of their modern society […]

Die Zeit’s Slovenly Climate Journalism – How They Totally Botched The Story Of The Missing Wheat

What follows is the story of how editors at renowned German weekly Die Zeit completely botched the translation of English text passages to German, thus making their German story completely erroneous, and far more sensational. Climate change threatens the global supply of noodles, Die Zeit claims.

- 61°F in Siberia…Gee, Now I’m Really Worried About The Permafrost Melting!

- 61°F in Siberia…Gee, Now I’m Really Worried About The Permafrost Melting!

I like checking the temperatures in Siberia using the map at Joe Bastardi’s Weatherbell. Today I found a real extreme reading. Eastern Siberia, -61°F, see center. Source: www.weatherbell.com/. Now we know it’s been pretty damn cold in Eastern Europe and all over Russia, but this is getting ridiculous. This has been going on for weeks […]

Cold Blast Claims Over 600 Lives Across Eastern Europe/Russia…”Death Toll Keeps Rising…State Of Emergency”

It’s the worst cold snap in Russia in over 70 years. Hundreds have already frozen to death across Eastern Europe. But you won’t be hearing about this in the mainstream media.

IPCC 5 AR Now Claims Anthropogenic Warming Is Offset By Anthropogenic Cooling! You’ve Got To Be Kidding!

Ever wonder why IPCC scientists are losing credibility? Rudolf Kipp in a reader comment here points out an interesting claim being made by the IPCC 5 AR Summary for Policymakers (SPM) on page 10. It states: The greenhouse gas contribution to the warming from 1951–2010 is in the range between 0.6 and 1.4°C. This is very […]
