As climate observations continue their now obscene divergence from the earlier IPCC model projections, some media outlets are becoming harsher in their criticism of a science that increasingly appears corrupt and politicized. Moreover climate scientists are looking ever more shrill and desperate. Hat-tip: hajo. A recent feature story by Markus Schär in the print edition of […]

Forecast March-2015 Solar Eclipse Has Power Grid Operators Distressed…”Dangerously Destabilized”

One thing we can be predicted with very high certainty: On March, 20, 2015 most of Germany will see a partial yet substantial eclipse of the sun. 40 gigawatts of rated power blocked in just minutes! Normally that would be no big deal. But for the first time in history, due to Germany’s massive installed solar […]

Giant 400 MW BARD I Offshore Windpark Shut-Down Extended Yet Again! Delay Is Now More Than 1 Year!

Giant 400 MW BARD I Offshore Windpark Shut-Down Extended Yet Again! Delay Is Now More Than 1 Year!

Germany’s ambitious offshore wind energy project is increasingly threatening to become an expensive green energy folly. Originally the flagship North Sea wind energy project was scheduled to be delivering clean energy by August 2013. However technical failures beleaguered the project and delayed the opening 7 months: until March 2014. BARD I offshore windpark shut-down extends […]

Switzerland's August 1.5°C Colder Than Normal...Arctic Sea Ice Explosion Despite Claims "Arctic Is Warming"

Switzerland’s August 1.5°C Colder Than Normal…Arctic Sea Ice Explosion Despite Claims “Arctic Is Warming”

The polar-vortex-inducing “warming Arctic” seems to be doing strange things to the Arctic itself – defying the very laws of physics: The “warmth” there is causing the sea ice extent to explode. Compare 2012 versus 2014: Arctic images for September 3. Source: www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/htm. Depending on which dataset you use, the Arctic sea ice extent this […]

2014: The Year Arctic Meltdown Stories Completely Vanished From Our Media!

Two years ago at about this time of year the media were overflowing at the brim with apocalyptic stories of high-speed Arctic meltdown. Everywhere the media used words like “dramatic”, catastrophic”, “accelerated”, “tipping point” and so on.

Renewable-Energy-Critical AfD Party Powers Into Saxony Parliament…”Shocking” Pollsters, Establishment (Again)

Update 01/09/2014 19:18 CET: The opinion poll presented at the Plenum link below just seems to be too wrong. To me it appears to be a national poll, and not of Saxony.
