A giant wind turbine in Mullavilly, County Armagh – which operated 24/7 – is now in use during working hours only, following a Court Order served after an appeal against a Noise Abatement Notice was dismissed. An out of Court settlement was agreed between village based company Rapid International and Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council.

Guardian Tells Us That They Know Nothing About History

“Ice has been melting for 15,000 years – since the end of the last ice age. Global warmers are quite possibly the stupidest people to ever occupy the planet.”

Climate alarmists, like those who write for the Guardian, hate climate history because it detroys their “human-induced” climate change narrative.

This event has repeated it itself every few decades. One might expect that newspaper publishers would know a little about their favorite talking points? Apparently they must have missed some past newspaper issues, like this one from 100 years ago saying that Alaska’s largest glacier was receding fifteen feet per day.

Aussie Government Slashes $500 Million from the Renewable Budget

“I guess the price of making an economically worthless living off the fantasies of politicians, is your budget can be stripped and reallocated, any time the boss wants to do some international virtue signalling.”

Australian Renewable Energy Agency handed lifeline after threat of closure

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency has escaped closure with the government agreeing to restore $800 million of funding.

The agency, which provides financial grants for 40 per cent of the CSIRO’s energy research, was set to be stripped of $1.3 billion as part of the government’s Omnibus Savings Bill.

The Coalition also planned to merge its funding role with the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, which expects to see a financial return on money it invests in research.
