Germany’s Leading Late Night Comedy Show Harshly Mocks Germany’s Energiewende!

Awhile back I wrote about a harsh German late night parody of the country’s failed transition to renewable energy. Now the video appears on Youtube and is accompanied by English subtitles.

Bureaucrats To Force Europeans To Drink Cold Coffee To Save The Climate…EU Directive Aims To Limit Coffee Machines!

Europe’s regulation bureaucrats are going out of control once again. Citizens, they feel, aren’t grown up enough to responsibly operate their own household applicances. They need to be nannied, the EU bureaucrats believe.

Tree-Hugging Vegetarian Environmentalists Think They Know What’s Best For Us. Yet, Just Look At Their Kids!

I’ve gotten a few emotionalized, angry e-mails from veggie readers on the story about how meat-eaters are by far much healthier in every respect than vegetarians. They insist that their nutrition is superior and that the University of Graz study is “bullshit”. It’s bought and paid for by the bacon industry! Yet, nothing better illustrates […]

University of Graz Study Finds Vegetarians Are Unhealthier, More Mentally Disturbed Than Meat-Lovers

University of Graz Study Finds Vegetarians Are Unhealthier, More Mentally Disturbed Than Meat-Lovers

It’s no secret that many vegetarians are also radical environmentalists and climate alarmists who are obsessed and hysterical about the planet burning up. Perhaps the University of Graz in Austria has discovered one reason why: their “unhealthy” diet. Study shows that big meat-eaters are healthiest.

Stunning Absurdity From Germany’s Energy Feed-In Act…Wind-Park Operators Earn Most When Turbines Are Idle!

Rudolf Kipp at the skeptical website Science Skeptical here writes about one of the incredible (but very real) absurdities of Germany’s “EEG” renewable energy feed-in act, which forces power companies to buy all green power that gets produced, whether needed or not, and even power that doesn’t get produced. ===================================== When the wind turbine is idle… By Rudolf […]

German City Of Bremen Calls For A Green Police – To Enter Private Homes And Eliminate Electric Heaters

Most of us already suspect that environmentalists are dictatorial wolves dressed in the democracy sheepskin. Despite all the lip service they pay to justice and liberty, they are really all about state power and regulation. So it is with Germany’s authoritarian statists and greens, who not long ago called for the enactment of a nationwide […]

German Mainstream Media Mocks, Fires Stinging Parody At Country’s Collapsing Renewable Energies Project

This is a first and quite possibly a watershed event when it comes to media sentiment towards green energies. It appears it’s no longer taboo in Germany to mock green energy.

Tucson Citizen’s DuHamel On Turney’s Botched Expedition: “Failure Put People In Danger For A Publicity Stunt”!

At his Wry Heat blog, the Tucson Citizen’s Jonathan Duhamel has a good commentary titled: A ship of fools. No mystery here over what he’s writing about.

Expedition Fiasco Leader Professor Chris Turney Fibs Yet Again: Now Claims Akademik Shokalskiy Is An “Icebreaker”!

Journal Nature can no longer be bothered to check facts anymore. Bad enough that they rarely subject global warming climate papers to real, rigorous peer-review, and so now even the most obvious rubbish gets by. In a Nature comment, Professor Turney seems to be responding in part to harsh articles published by Cambridge University News and […]

Turney Backpedals! Now Says Getting Stuck In Sea Ice NOT Due To Climate Change”!

It appears that now even Professor Chris Turney admits blaming his expedition mishap on global warming was an astronomical stretch after all. Yesterday I reported here, quoting flagship Swiss daily (NZZ), that his communication director Alvin Stone blamed global warming for the vessel getting trapped in ice. The whole world laughed. I couldn’t believe it myself so […]
