The Game Changer: HuffPost Embraces Nuclear Power

The high priests of the Global Warming faith embracing Nuclear!

Sound the death knell for unreliable energy – wind/solar – as a fanciful baseload alternative to fossil fuels!

What a truly catastrophic disaster – environmentally, socially and economically the feel-good ‘Green’ energy experiment has been.

Sigh.

Watts Up With That?

Huffpost has published a very supportive post, about New York State embracing nuclear power as an equal player in the low carbon energy game.

The Game Changer: New York’s Clean Energy Standard and Nuclear Energy

For years, I’ve said that when it comes to the challenge of fighting climate change, we will need every tool available to reduce carbon pollution and create opportunities for new clean energy technology.

Yet, despite a world that demands more carbon-free energy – not less – public policies have left some of the tools in the toolbox. Until now.

In August, with the help of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s leadership, the New York State PSC took unprecedented action in passing a Clean Energy Standard that, in addition to ensuring ample opportunity for more wind, solar, and energy efficiency, recognizes the important role of existing carbon-free…

Inconvenient: Giant Coral Reef That ‘Died’ In 2003 Teeming With Life Again

“Our [alarmist] projections were completely wrong,” he says.
“Sometimes it is really nice to be proven wrong as a scientist, and this was a perfect example of that.” –Jane Palmer, BBC, 6 September 2014

What other alarmist predictions, exaggerated claims and catastrophic projections are you fed in order to push the global warming agenda?

Watts Up With That?

From the “global warming and ocean acidification will kill everything, forever” and the “nature always finds a way” department comes this inconvenient truth.

Back From The Dead: Giant Coral Reef That ‘Died’ In 2003 Teeming With Life Again

In 2003, researchers declared Coral Castles dead.

On the floor of a remote island lagoon halfway between Hawaii and Fiji, the giant reef site had been devastated by unusually warm water. Its remains looked like a pile of drab dinner plates tossed into the sea. Research dives in 2009 and 2012 had shown little improvement in the coral colonies.

Then in 2015, a team of marine biologists was stunned and overjoyed to find the giant coral reef once again teeming with life. But the rebound came with a big question: Could the enormous and presumably still fragile coral survive what would be the hottest year on record? This month, the Massachusetts-based research team…
