Despite Climate Campaigners Efforts, Germany’s New Coal Boom Reaches Record Level

Worth another look at ideologically “green” Germany’s reversion back to “dirty” coal after spending €Trillion on failed “Energiewende” to show how green centralised planning has failed, big time, just as centralised economic models of socialist regimes gone by have failed time after time.

Watts Up With That?

Dirty Coal Revived As Europe Speeds Green Retreat

With Greenpeace successfully forcing the shutdown of nuclear power, and keeping out fracking for gas, what’s left? A boom in coal. In fact, over the next two years Germany will build 10 new power plants for hard coal.  Europe is in a coal frenzy, building power plants and opening up new mines, practically every month. It might sound odd that a boom in German coal is the result of Greenpeace’s political success. –Ezra Levant, Toronto Sun, 7 January 2014

FAIL: Busted Wind Turbines Give College Whopping Negative 99.14% Return On Investment

Your taxpayer funded green energy-insanity future…

Watts Up With That?

From the “it’s OK, we used other people’s money” department and Andrew Follet at The Daily Caller:

Lake Land College recently announced plans to tear down broken wind turbines on campus, after the school got $987,697.20 in taxpayer support for wind power.

The turbines were funded by a $2.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, but the turbines lasted for less than four years and were incredibly costly to maintain.

“Since the installation in 2012, the college has spent $240,000 in parts and labor to maintain the turbines,” Kelly Allee, Director of Public Relations at Lake Land College, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The college estimates it would take another $100,000 in repairs to make the turbines function again after one of them was struck by lightning and likely suffered electrical damage last summer. School officials’…

Stellarator vs tokamak: The path to nuclear fusion

The estimated $1Billion/day spent on “climate crisis Inc.” should be diverted asap to nuclear fusion R&D.
This WILL be the future of genuine “clean and green” energy where the primary source of fuel is sea water!

The latest contenders for the elusive fusion crown are reviewed here. Chasing the ‘holy grail’ of energy is an expensive and time-consuming business, as IB Times reports.

In a world struggling to kick its addiction to fossil fuels and feed its growing appetite for energy, there’s one technology in development that almost sounds too good to be true: nuclear fusion, writes Matthew Hall.

If it works, fusion power offers vast amounts of clean energy with a near limitless fuel source and virtually zero carbon emissions. That’s if it works. But there are teams of researchers around the world and billions of dollars being spent on making sure it does.

In February last year a new chapter of fusion energy research commenced with the formal opening of Wendelstein 7-X. This is an experimental €1 billion (A$1.4bn) fusion reactor built in Greifswald, Germany, to test a reactor design called a…

Back in March WUWT reported how President Obama transferred $500 Million to the UN Green Fund. According to Mother Jones, he has just done it again.

Obama Just Took One Final Step to Fight Global Warming

And there’s nothing Donald Trump can do about it.

NATHALIE BAPTISTEJAN. 17, 2017 4:17 PM

President Barack Obama has made one final contribution to the fight against global warming on his way out the White House door. On Tuesday, Obama transferred $500 million to the UN’s Green Climate Fund, a key program set up to finance climate change adaptation and renewable energy projects in developing countries. That’s on top of another $500 million the Obama administration had already given to the fund.

… Trump won’t be able to reverse payments to the UN that have already been made.

Obama’s total contributions of $1 billion are still far short of…
