James Delingpole Climate Views on The Virgin Podcast

It continues to amaze me that anyone still takes Branson and his fellow sanctimonious, eco-hypocrite elites seriously.
But what matters is seeming green, not actually doing it. And Brazen does his best to do that seeming…

Watts Up With That?

Richard Branson and Al Gore Richard Branson and Al Gore

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Billionaire Entrepreneur Richard Branson, head of the Virgin Group, who sometimes features on WUWT for his strong pro climate advocacy views, has upset fellow travellers by allowing airtime for prominent British climate skeptic James Delingpole.

According to the Virgin website;

“In everything I write, I try to be as honest as I can and cleave to the truth as much as possible.” This week we welcome journalist, author broadcaster James Delingpole to the show. James is an extremely provocative man, and he believes that fears over climate change are unfounded.

I should stress that James’ views are in direct contradiction to the Virgin house view, and I think it is to Virgin’s great credit that they are prepared to hear and give airtime to the other side of such a divisive argument.

Where James and Virgin do…

“Five Pacific islands vanish from sight as sea levels rise”

Since the end of the last ice age, The Marshall, Solomon and other Island atolls have survived 130 metres of sea-level rise, but the last 1.43mm/year since 1950 (if that) is going to sink them?!

Climate reports based on RCP8.5 Climate model predictions are designed purely to fuel climate change alarmism and are a disgrace to journalism and scientific discovery.

They depict the opposite of observed reality and epitomise the fear mongering, propaganda and alarmism that fuels the ‘catastrophic (man made) climate change’ scam.

Watts Up With That?

Guest post by David Middleton

I was going to debunk this bit of nonsense from New Scientist, but it never identifies the vanishing islands and kind of debunks itself…

Idiocy1

Going, going, gone. Five of the Solomon Islands have been swallowed whole by rising sea levels, offering a glimpse into the future of other low-lying nations.

Sea levels in the Solomon Islands have been climbing by 7 millimetres per year over the last two decades, due to a double whammy of global warming and stronger trade winds.

“It’s a perfect storm,” says Simon Albert of the University of Queensland. “There’s the background level of global sea-level rise, and then the added pressure of a natural trade wind cycle that has been physically pushing water into the Western Pacific.”

The global rate of sea level rise is 3 millimetres per year, but is likely to accelerate to 7 by the end…

US Wind Power Output Collapse: What Happens When the Wind Don’t Blow

STOP THESE THINGS

Aeolus1

Rock-a-bye baby, on the treetop,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock,
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.

When your power generation ‘system’ depends on the whim of the Wind Gods, results can differ from the operators’ professed claims.

In the US, the Gods haven’t blessed the wind industry with much fortune of late: despite a rapid increase in (massively subsidised) wind power capacity, wind power output has slumped (and babies nesting in treetops can sleep easy).

States subsidized for wind power saw decline in production

States with lucrative subsidies for wind power such as California, Oregon and Washington saw huge decreases in the amount of wind power generated during 2015, according to a Thursday report by the Energy Information Administration.

The only major state to see large increases in its wind…
