When the wind don’t blow, South Australia don’t glow.
However, if the visual of a windmill relieves those of their climate sins, then they are worth every cent. That is until they run out of them…in the dark.
The image above is taken from the Collins Picture Dictionary under the definition of ‘chaos‘: complete confusion and disorder : a state in which behavior and events are not controlled by anything.
To be fair, South Australia’s power supply is ‘controlled’ …… ‘controlled’ by the vagaries of the weather, that is.
Renewables alone a recipe for blackouts
Australian Financial Review

Australia faces potential blackouts and poor jobs and environmental outcomes if it relies solely on the Renewable Energy Target, a new report says.
South Australia’s energy security problems show the risks for the nation of promoting wind and solar energy in a surplus electricity market without a firm plan for an orderly phase-out of coal-fired stations, it says.
The report is a challenge to federal Labor, which has an aggressive 50 per cent Renewable Energy Target (RET) for 2030 with an undefined carbon…

Despite record CO2 (plant food) emissions over the past 50 years of (evil) industrialisation, “None of these updated NOAA tide gauge measurement data records show coastal location sea level rise acceleration occurring anywhere on the U.S. coasts or Pacific or Atlantic island groups.”
What the? CO2? But?
Guest essay by Larry Hamblin
NOAA has updated its extensive U.S. coastal tide gauge data measurement records (http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/sltrends/sltrends_us.htm) to include data through year 2015. These measurements include tide gauge data coastal locations for 25 West Coast, Gulf Coast and East Coast states along the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. In addition 7 Pacific island groups and 6 Atlantic island groups also have coastal location tide gauge data measurements updated as well.
In all more than 200 coastal locations are included in these measurements with more than 100 of these coastal locations with recorded data periods in excess of 50 years in duration. None of these updated NOAA tide gauge measurement data records show coastal location sea level rise acceleration occurring anywhere on the U.S. coasts or Pacific or Atlantic island groups.
In June of 1988 testimony was provided before Congress by various scientists, including NASA’s…
