DOE: If it weren’t for coal-fired electricity plants, the Northeast would have blacked-out during recent bomb-cyclonePosted: March 29, 2018
“New England was so desperate for natural gas to keep the heat on it took two shipments containing liquefied natural gas from Russia.”
OHH the delicious irony! The increased reliance on unreliables – wind and solar – by global warming obsessed progressive state governments is forcing them, in periods of extreme cold, to rely on fossil fuels (gas) from….”Russia, Russia, Russia”! LoL 😂
From the “when the going gets tough, renewables can’t cut it” department. Wind power generation actually dropped 5% during this period
From the Daily Caller: Coal-fired power plants kept the lights on for millions of Americans during January’s bomb cyclone, according to an Energy Department report warning future plant retirements could imperil grid security.
Energy analysts at DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory found that coal power kept the lights on for millions of Americans during the bomb cyclone that pummeled the eastern U.S. from late December to early January.
NETL analysts found that coal plants made up most of the incremental power utilities relied on to keep electricity flowing during the cold snap. Nuclear and oil power plants played a big role, NETL…

IN 2000, climate expert Dr David Viner of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) assured us that…
EARLIER today I reported on Sydney’s Autumn 38 degree Sun-day, noting that “the usual climate ambulance chasers will be sharpening the lead and filling ink wells to inscribe “
climate change” “global warming” on their “extreme weather” report cards, feeling morally-bound to fashionably link mankind’s activities to the follies of nature.”
IT didn’t take long for Australian Greens’ leader, Senator Richard Di Natale to blame the current bout of extreme, yet, not-out-of-the-ordinary natural disasters, on ‘climate change’.
WITH the mercury topping 38C in Sydney over the weekend (hottest in 78 years), the usual climate ambulance chasers will be sharpening the lead and filling ink wells to inscribe
“climate change” “global warming” on their “extreme weather” report cards, feeling morally-bound to fashionably link mankind’s activities to the follies of nature.
HOWEVER, heatwaves and fires in Sydney during autumn months are not uncommon, even when CO2 was at ‘safe’ levels…
(2018 atmospheric CO2 levels are currently at ~400 ppm)
1899 CO2 = 295 ppm
HEAT WAVE IN SYDNEY.A heat wave reaced Sydney to-day, causing the thermometers to register 90.4deg. in the shade. This heat, though much less than was recently recorded in the southern capitals, was far more enervating, owing to the huge percentage of moisture in the atmosphere. Mr. Russell says that only a dozen times in the history of the colony has a higher March temperature been recorded in Sydney, and if the lateness of the month is taken into account, to-day’s heat will go very close to constituting a record. In the evening a cool change set in from the south.
IF this mass die-off of sea-creatures happened due to a heatwave, the misanthropic Guardian and climate activists the world over would be blaming evil
mankind personkind and calling for immdediate “climate action”.

Booker skewers Monbiot in his column today:
Although The Guardian’s George Monbiot waxes famously excitable over anything he can blame on global warming, he got carried away even more than usual last week. As Britain suffered from blizzards and a deep freeze, he noted a recent spike in temperatures in the Arctic, taking them up to 63F (35C) above average. “This is more than just a temperature anomaly,” he tweeted, “it is an off-the-scale event. Why is the Arctic meltdown not headline news in every paper?”
It did not take long for our expert friend Paul Homewood, on his blog Notalotofpeopleknowthat, to track down one answer to that question. He published a graph and charts from the Danish Meteorological Institute showing a similar temperature spike in 1976 which also brought March snow to Britain.
Far from being “crazy”, “weird” and “unprecedented”, as is claimed by various scientists…

PEOPLE in the Netherlands have been making the most of the freezing weather by ice skating over the country’s famous and now frozen canals.
This week’s ‘Beast From The East’ winter storm caused some of the canals in Amsterdam to freeze over for the first time in six years.
