Arctic Meltdown Update

Real Science

Greenland’s surface has gained almost 500 billion tons of ice since September 1.

Experts say that the imaginary melting is both unprecedented and man-made.

How Green Is My Industrial Wind Turbine?

With an average lifespan of only fifteen years, running at max 30% output, an industrial windmill could spin until it falls apart and never generate as much energy as was invested in building it.

Sadly however, such facts that contradict the conventional-climate-wisdom of the day matter little in the ideological, groupthink echo charmer of the great global warming swindle/religion.

Because wind power fails when the wind stops blowing, 100% of its capacity has to be backed up 100% of the time by fossil fuels which run constantly in the background to balance the grid and prevent blackouts when wind power output collapses:

The energy required for a helicopter to de-ice all the blades on a wind farm must outweigh any supposed saving in CO2 by a factor of 100 or more. Notwithstanding that no wind farm has saved a gram of CO2 due to construction and the necessary spinning reserve.

HUMAN STUPIDITY KNOWS NO LIMITS

Windmills kill millions of birds (often rare) and bats every year.

Where’s the outrage from the ‘greens’, the supposed protectors of Mother Nature?
There is none, because being ‘green’ is not about the environment anymore, rather – politics, sanctimony, self-loathing, misanthropy, capitalist hatred, power and opportunity.

If greens love nature, why aren’t they more concerned about carpeting pristine landscapes with industrial wind turbines?

The global warming scare has been cover for a massive transfer of funds from taxpayers to green carpetbaggers, thanks to headline-seeking, vote hungry politicians trying to take credit for solving a “catastrophe” that simply does not empirically exist.

The uselessness of ‘unreliable’ wind and solar energy, hastily rolled out to “save the planet”, is being slowly and painfully discovered at enormous cost to western economies and to the environment.

Sceptics have been warning of this for years. However, deep-green “save the planet” sanctimony has largely triumphed in the echelons of the political, media and social elite, to the detriment of the environment and the poorest in society who now suffer ‘energy poverty’.

A worthy  maxim to note: The only difference between conservatives (sceptics) who warned of the green energy disaster, and the Left (global warming alarmists) is time … and lots and lots and lots of other-peoples-money.
