Wind Farms Can Cause Stress And Sleep Loss, DECC Study Finds

Huge health problems in Australia by those exposed to windfarm infrasound.

A particular case in point, followed and highlighted by radio king Alan Jones, has been the despicable treatment of Anne Gardner by wind-industry giants AGL.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/uk/wind-farms-can-cause-stress-and-sleep-loss-for-nearby-residents-review-finds-35173304.html

A “clear link” between the amount of noise emitted by an energy site and irritation experienced by nearby residents was identified in a report commissioned by the Department of Energy and Climate Change last year.

Published this week, the paper said there was an “increased risk” of suffering from sleep deprivation from turbines exceeding 40 decibels.

But the prospect of a sleepless night was generally an “indirect” link caused by the frustration evoked from having a loud wind farm in your community, it added.

The review recommended that “excessive” noise should be clamped down on, citing potential measures such as modifying the turbine blade.

The findings ratcheted up pressure on the Government to be more heavy handed with noisy farms, with one MP calling for them to be “shut down permanently”.

Complaints about noise disturbance can range from the steady swishing noise from the blade to…

Dr. Neil Frank: Hillary Clinton Is No Hurricane Expert—But I Am

A two-minute MUST READ.

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Dr. Neil Frank, former Director, National Hurrricane Center 

As former Director of the National Hurricane Center (1974–1987), I was appalled when, in a campaign rally at Miami-Dade College October 11, Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said, “Hurricane Matthew was likely more destructive because of climate change.”

That is false.

We were extremely fortunate that Matthew—category 5 through much of the Caribbean—weakened to category 2 before landfall in South Carolina. It could have been much worse.

In 1893 a much stronger hurricane followed nearly the same track. When its eye reached the Georgia and South Carolina coasts, a 15–20 ft. storm surge inundated the coastal islands. Though population was a small fraction of today’s, between 2,000 and 3,000 died, making that the second deadliest hurricane in U.S. history. The same year another major hurricane killed 2,000 in Louisiana.

All together five hurricanes hit the U.S. in 1893, something that’s happened…

Wind Power Sends German Power Prices Rocketing as CO2 Emissions Continue to Rise

Meanwhile, ideologically agressive “Green” Gemany is undergoing the biggest coal-fired power expansion in her history.

Cheap, reliable, efficient, hydrocarbon based energy apparently matters after spending ONE TRILLION EUROS on useless, costly, intermittent “unreliables” – wind and solar power.

STOP THESE THINGS

angry german kid

Germany has long been the poster-child for the wind-cult, the World over. But the way things have panned out, wind worshippers will soon need another pin-up girl.

The costs of its maniacal rush into massively subsidised wind and solar to German businesses and households has been astronomical and, in the mother of all ironies, CO2 emissions continue to rise.

Here’s NoTricksZone on Germany’s fall from wind cult idol, to lamentable green power disaster.

Alarm …  Major German Grid Operator Announces Whopping 80% Higher Grid Fees! “Power To Be More Expensive”

Yesterday the online German news weekly FOCUS here wrote an article that is certainly more bad news for Germany’s electricity consumers, who are already paying among the highest rates in the world.

One of Germany’s major power grid operators, Tennet, announced it is “massively increasing power grid fees” and that “power is…

NASA “Sea Level Rise” Fraud

nasa_fraud

‘Sea Level Rise’ is just one in a long line of propaganda metrics used by the climate crisis industry to promote the narrative that your CO2 emissions are causing unprecedented climate change.

What ‘sea-level rise’ alarmists won’t tell you is that seas have risen 400 feet (120m) over the past 20,000 years, since the end of the last Ice Age. And over the past 200 years have been rising at a steady rate of 1.7-1.8 mm/year according to NOAA.

Climate change and sea level rise over the past 20,000 years :

Sea Level Rise acceleration?

There has been no acceleration of sea-level rise since industrialisation. And critically, something other than evil plant food “Carbon Dioxide” caused seas to rise around 1790.

Important to note that 85% of man-made CO2 was emitted after 1945 :

jevrejeva-sea-levels-1700-1800-1900-2000-global-2

It wasn’t CO2: Global sea levels started rising before 1800 « JoNova

 

What we know about rising seas :

  • Seas have been rising for the past 20,000 years, since the end of the last Ice Age.
  • Something other than CO2 caused the current steady rise around 1790.
  • No acceleration since 1790.

With that hard science and peer-reviewed data in the vault, enter the climate fiddlers from the ‘Ministry of Truth’ – NASA…

 

 

Tony Heller of Real Climate Science has spent thousands upon thousands of hours of unpaid work exposing the relentless fraudulent adjustments and data tampering pushed out of government (taxpayer funded) climate institutions – NASA, NOAA, NSIDC, NCDC, CSIRO, BoM, UN IPCC to name a few.

The fraudulent data is then fed to the sycophant, global warming alarmist mainstream media, published as gospel, and voilà – the “Climate Change Crisis” is born!

This recent post via Real Climate Science on NASA tampering of Sea-level rise highlights the blatant malfeasance that these government funded institutions will undertake in order to push the man-made global warming climate change agenda, and keep the “Greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud in history” rolling and the billions upon billions of taxpayer funds flowing…

NASA Shows How Science Fraud Is Done

 

In 1982, NASA showed that sea level rise dropped off sharply after 1950.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-6-56-02-am

NASA said that there was a high correlation with global surface temperature (i.e. global warming occurred from 1880 to 1940 and slowed considerably after 1950.)

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-7-13-56-am-down

1982_Gornitz_go05100g.pdf

In 1990, the IPCC said there was no convincing evidence of an acceleration in sea level rise during the 20th century.

screen-shot-2016-10-23-at-6-03-54-am-down

The 1995 IPCC report showed no warming from the 1950’s to the 1990’s.

ipcc_sar_wg_I_full_report.pdf

The NASA/IPCC data wrecked two essential parts of the global warming scam – post-1950 warming and post-1950 sea level rise. So they found people who were willing to change the data to match the models. The current NASA sea level data is based on this confirmation bias fishing expedition.

This acceleration is an important confirmation of climate change simulations

Church and White discovered a mysterious break in sea level in the year 1926, when sea level rise rates suddenly increased by almost 250% to 1,94 mm/year.

I can’t find one single tide gauge anywhere on the planet which shows this post-1926 acceleration. The Church and White study is utter nonsense.

But the NASA fraud gets worse. Their tide gauge data says 1.94 mm/year, but their web site shows 3.4 mm/year.

#PodestaEmails – Green group asks Hillary campaign manager to ‘put pressure on TV networks to link severe weather and climate

BOOM. Though a Podesta email push probably not necessary for the progressive mainstream media to link ‘Extreme Weather’ with ‘Climate Change’ – it’s become their national pet-pastime.

Watts Up With That?

From the “say anything” department, comes this email where the League of Conservation Voters asks Hillary’s campaign manager John Podesta to “…help us pressure the evening news programs at CBS, NBC, and ABC to make climate science central to their extreme weather coverage this year?”.

podesta-email-pressure-tv-networks

The second half of the email is a form letter, and it says:

This is ridiculous.

From record-breaking heat waves and massive wildfires to historic droughts and Superstorm Sandy, we’ve seen with our own eyes the increasing severity and frequency of extreme weather events this past year. Yet in reporting on these disastrous events, the nightly news programs at the major broadcast networks have largely ignored what is fueling this extreme weather – climate change.

As the effects of climate change cause hardship for families across America, we need better coverage if we want people to connect the dots and demand real action to curb…

Nicholas Stern, Global Warming Guru, In Hot Water

Stern will simply claim he had ‘good intentions’, like all the global warming vampires caught red-handed sucking the blood out of the taxpayer, fraudulently.

Time to lockup those who take advantage of the taxpayer under the guise of “saving the planet”. Really.

PA Pundits - International

Bolt New 01By Andrew Bolt ~

One of the most influential warming alarmists (and an Australian ABC darling)  hasn’t just wildly exaggerated the dangers of global warming.

Sir Nicholas Stern’s Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy also exaggerated the work it’s done – claiming cash from the British Government by boasting of research it never did:Global Warming Exposed

One of the world’s leading institutes for researching the impact of global warming has repeatedly claimed credit for work done by rivals – and used it to win millions from the taxpayer.

An investigation by The Mail on Sunday also reveals that when the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP) made a bid for more Government funds, it claimed it was responsible for work that was published before the organisation even existed. Last night, our evidence was described by one leading professor whose work was misrepresented as ‘a clear case of fraud –…

Coal Plants Under Construction In China & India Rising At Alarming Levels

Aside from lifting billions out of abject poverty, through the use of cheap, efficient and reliable fossil-fuel based energy, (smart) China and India recognise the growing manufacturing vacuum left by a “global warming” obsessed West destroying their jobs and industries with draconian climate policy and overreaching green regs.

The ‘world’s most respected science journal’ Nature starts on the road to Perdition

Eisenhower warned of the corruption of science with politics in 1960.

“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocation, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet in holding scientific discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

– President Eisenhower 1960

Watts Up With That?

nature-screws-themselves

I never in my life thought I’d see this article, never. I witnessed the corruption of National Geographic and Scientific American into political cesspools, but I never thought this would happen. Nature has sunk to the depths of blatant political advocacy. They don’t even seem to read their own writing, because the first line says:

In March 2011, this publication suggested that the US Congress seemed lost in the “intellectual wilderness”.

The Republicans had taken over the House of Representatives, and one of the early acts of the chamber’s science committee was to approve legislation that denied the threat of climate change. As it turns out, this was just one tiny piece of a broader populist movement that was poised to transform the US political scene. Judging by the current presidential campaign, when it comes to reason, decency and use of evidence, much of the country’s political system seems to…
