German Daily ‘Die Welt’ Announces: President Trump/USA “World’s Most Successful Climate Protector”

It turns out that the country that got attacked the most for backing out of the Paris Accord happens to be the one that reduced CO2 emissions the most last year, writes Die Welt’s energy journalist, Daniel Wetzel, who wrote: Now the results are in: No country in the world saved more CO2 in 2017 […]

Wind’s False Promise Of Environmental Purity…Everywhere “Everything Is Rotating And Blinking”…”High Price To Pay”

Public opinion of wind energy in Germany, once unanimously high, has eroded considerably over the past years as more people begin to realize that the country’s once idyllic countryside is turning into a blighted industrial landscape. The earlier visions of environmental purity are instead turning out to be illusions by con-artists. The reality is an […]

The Science Unsettles Image Source: Robertson and Chilingar, 2017 In just the first 8 weeks of 2018,  97 scientific papers have been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise serve to question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly […]

Greed Energy…Endangered Black Stork Nest Blocking Wind Park Construction Gets Criminally Destroyed

Conservationist/wind-energy protest group Rettet den Odenwald (Save the Forest of Odes) here writes that yet another endangered stork nest was recently destroyed at the forested location near a proposed JuWi wind park. Controversy swirls over German wind park builder JuWi Normally the clearing of forest land to make way for industry is required to undergo […]

Adjusted Upwards...German CO2 Equivalent Emissions Rise (Again) In 2016...No Reduction Since 2009!

Adjusted Upwards…German CO2 Equivalent Emissions Rise (Again) In 2016…No Reduction Since 2009!

Germany’s CO2 equivalent emissions revised upward for 2016. The country has barely seen any reduction in greenhouse gas emissions so far this decade but has seen its power prices skyrocket and power grid become far more unstable. According to Germany’s Ministry of Environment here (UBA), emissions of “climate gases” rose again in 2016, from 906 […]

Unstable Green Power Grids: German ARD Television Tells Citizens To Start Getting Used To Blackouts!

Flagship ARD public television here broadcast a report on the state of the German power grid, which until about some 15 years ago was by far among the world’s most stable.
