Psychology 101: Mikey pens diatribe. Mikey cares. Mikey rattled. Mikey defensive. Mikey abuses.
Mikey knows sea level rise is *not* accelerating via colourless, odourless, trace gas and plant food CO2.
After attacking me with a bunch of BS, Michael “An Embarrassment To The Profession” Mann has deleted my response. He can’t win a debate, so he censors.
This was my response, which is now gone.
130 Billion tonnes of hidden ice would literally equate to 130 Billion dollars of #climateaction funding and grants.
That’s where it ends up.
In 2014, The Danish Meteorological Institute showed that Greenland’s surface gained 130 Billion tons of ice during the 2011-2012 time period. Now they show that Greenland gained no ice during that period.
Here are the original files:
How did DMI lose 1,300 trillion snow cones of ice? Only a climate scientist can answer that question.
Like the old sailors say, “The wind is free, but everything else costs money” – lots and lots of it.
In their sillier moments, the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers pitch the line that their pointless product is not only getting cheaper all the time, but go so far as to claim that wind power is already cheaper than gas and coal-fired power. Risible PR antics aside, the wind industry has always had a troubled relationship with the facts.
In 2016 – with disastrous results of attempting to rely on a Medieval technology unfolding daily (like Germany, South Australia and Ontario) – it takes real audacity to run the line about the wind being ‘free’: requiring the reality of hundreds of $billions in seemingly endless subsidies to be ignored, as with the fact that, at an economic level, power…

Green German Lies https://climatism.wordpress.com/2016/03/28/green-german-lies/
By Paul Homewood
The greenies don’t seem very happy about Germany at the moment! From Climate Home:
Germany’s carbon dioxide emissions increased by an estimated 10 million tonnes from 2014 to 2015, in a blow to the country’s claims to climate leadership.
Higher demand for heating oil and diesel, plus use of lignite (brown coal) for power generation, were behind the 1.1% bounce, according to Green Budget Germany.
The think tank warned this set Europe’s largest economy off course for its 2020 target of a 40% cut from 1990 levels. Berlin needs to find 18% cuts in the next five years.
It is an inconvenient analysis to surface the week Germany’s foreign office hosts the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, an international conference to promote cooperation on clean energy.
The country has gone all out for renewables, with biomass, wind, solar and hydro accounting for nearly a third…

IDEOLOGICALLY aggressive “green” Germany has outlaid €1 Trillion Euros, of other people’s money, on Wind and Solar power, under the disastrous Energiewende program, only to undergo the biggest coal-fired power expansion in her history…
Germany’s wind and solar power production came to an almost complete standstill in early December. More than 23,000 wind turbines stood still. One million photovoltaic systems stopped work nearly completely. For a whole week coal, nuclear and gas power plants had to generate an estimated 95 percent of Germany’s electricity supply. –Daniel Wetzel, Die Welt, 24 December 2013
16th Centuy weather-dependent Windmills were abandoned centuries ago, for obvious reasons.
All they really do is relieve climate guilt for the gullible while diverting trillions of dollars of taxpayers money to rent-seeking eco-corporations. So much for ‘socialism’, in this case green-central planning, evening up the wealth gap!
Greenland’s surface has gained almost 500 billion tons of ice since September 1.
Arctic sea ice is very close to the 1981-2010 median.
Experts say that the imaginary melting is both unprecedented and man-made.
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?
Pristine land needed to replace all Coal, Natural Gas and Oil based electricity generation.
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.
