James Delingpole Dumps on the Great Wind Power Fraud

A blistering MUST READ from the brilliant James Delingpole!

Some tasty takeouts:

“It is an unfortunate fact that over the last forty years, the Climate Industrial Complex – as Myron Ebell calls it – has slipped its slimy green tentacles into pretty much every institution you could name from government bodies like NASA and NOAA through our schools and universities and the mainstream media (BBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Guardian, Vanity Fair, the Times) even unto the Big Oil companies such as the people responsible for this energy report, BP.

“No one would build these things otherwise because they’re just not commercially viable. The energy they produce is unreliable, unpredictable, intermittent, destabilising (prone to surges and lulls), environmentally damaging (from their huge concrete bases to their use of poisonous rare earth minerals), and very expensive. That’s why they have to be subsidised by taxpayers. And the only reason taxpayers subsidise them is because they’re forced to do so by government legislation which has been framed in the belief that this is a necessary measure to “combat climate change.

“More and more, renewables are being recognised as an environmental disaster, as a charter for troughers and rent-seekers, as a human health hazard, and as a serious threat to economic stability.

“South Australia is the bellwether of this impending, renewables-driven economic disaster. As Paul Homewoodreports, it now relies on wind power for 40 per cent of its electricity – a lunatic decision which has led to rationing, black outs and economic disruption. This won’t continue. South Australians simply won’t allow it to continue: they’re not cowed supplicants in some communist state but sophisticated consumers in a free market economy. Rationing and black outs just aren’t acceptable in such a culture, no matter how noble the intentions of the idiot leftist politicians who introduced all those carbon-reducing green schemes now are backfiring so badly and so predictably.

“All I ask is one simple question: if an industry can only exist because it’s dependent on subsidies and regulation, what do you think will happen to that industry if the public mood swings, a revolutionary spirit takes hold post Brexit and Donald Trump, and those subsidies are withdrawn and the regulation is removed?”

STOP THESE THINGS

James Delingpole has been slugging it out with lunatics from the Greenblob for more than a decade. Now, as the world wakes up to the scale and scope of the great wind power fraud, Slim Jim finds himself on the right side of history. Here he is letting the world know about it.

Why Renewables Are Doomed and Fossil Fuels Are the Future
Breitbart
James Delingpole
9 February 2017

We’re on the verge of a new energy revolution. Except it’s the exact opposite of the one the “experts” at places like BP, the International Energy Agency and – ahem – the Guardian are predicting.

For years we’ve been assured by politicians, energy industry specialists and green advocates that renewables such as wind and solar are getting more and more cost-competitive while dirty fossil fuels are so discredited and wrong and evil we’ll soon have to leave them in the ground.

Trump expected to slash Nasa’s climate budget in favour of space exploration

“After all, there’s no ‘C’ in NASA.”

Exactly right.

And this quip becomes even more farcical when you drill down on the funding for ‘space’ Vs ‘climate’ over at NASA…

Via Mike Bastasch, Daily Caller:

“NASA’s budget includes more than $2 billion for its Earth Science Mission Directorate, which works to improve climate modeling, weather prediction and natural hazard mitigation. NASA’s other functions, such as astrophysics and space technology, are only getting a mere $781.5 and $826.7 million, respectively, in the budget proposal.

Spending on the [climate] directorate has increased by 63 percent over the last eight years, making it the largest and fastest growing budget of any NASA science program. Over the same time period, the general NASA budget grew only by 10.6 percent — just enough to account for inflation.”

It appears that ‘cooling the past and warming the present’, to fit the global warming narrative, is a winning formula in the squeeze for taxpayer funds.

Nice work Gavin Schmidt.

After all, there’s no ‘C’ in NASA.
H/T GWPF/Sunday Times

US President-elect Donald Trump is set to slash Nasa’s budget for monitoring climate change and instead set a goal of sending humans to the edge of the solar system by the end of the century, and possibly back to the moon.

Mr Trump, who has called climate change a “Chinese hoax”, is believed to want to focus the agency on far-reaching, big banner goals in deep space rather than “Earth-centric climate change spending”.

According to Bob Walker, who has advised Mr Trump on space policy, Nasa has been reduced to “a logistics agency concentrating on space station resupply and politically correct environmental monitoring”.

SHOCK News 1923 : ‘Meteorological Office Exists As A Corrective To Scare Mongering And Shameless Prophecy’

85F4D9D9-509D-4B60-83F9-01CCCDDE49F5


“People have been imagining that the climate is changing,
exaggerating every weather event, getting widespread press coverage,
and blaming it on man – for as long as there have been newspapers.”

– Tony Heller
Climate Change Insanity Never Changes

Every summer when the thermometer rears unexpectedly or remains at a high level longer than is comfortable, people assert that the climate is changing. The same thing happens in winter whenever rain sets in and persists in a fashion indifferent from that of which anybody has recollection. South Australia’s winter, this year has occasioned the same speculation; not without justification, when for three months … the climate appeared not only to change but to disappear altogether, leaving the State with no climate but with just wet weather.

There is nothing more difficult than to remember and to compare weather that once prevailed with that experienced today. In no other sphere is memory so remiss or judgment so unreliable. It is fortunate for the community’s peace of mind that the Commonwealth Meteorological Office exists as a corrective to scare mongering and shameless prophecy. Mr. E. Bromley, Adelaide’s clerk of the weather has the facts, and the facts are that since Adelaide records were first taken 84 years ago neither in rainfall nor temperature has there been any change at all.

1923 : “It is fortunate for the community’s peace of mind that the Commonwealth Meteorological Office exists as a corrective to scare mongering and shameless prophecy.” 

2014 : Bureau Of Meteorology – where bush fires, heat waves, floods and drought, once natural phenomenons of Australia’s harsh climate, are now cited as evidence of human induced climate change. And with global temperatures failing to rise over the past 17 years, the Bureau is all too quick to report the hottest ever: day, month, yearseason. PR claims that tell us everything about marketing, and nothing about science.

Swept up in climate change hysteria, BoM has become a veritable cheerleader for the environmental movement, preferring climate scare mongering and shameless prophecy, over objective and sceptical scientific climate analysis.

Like the temperance movement one hundred years ago, the climate-catastrophe movement has enlisted the mass media, the leadership of scientific societies, the trustees of charitable foundations, and many other influential people to their cause. Hysterical op-ed’s lecture us today about the impending end of the planet and the need to stop climate change with bold political action. Many distinguished scientific journals now have editors who further the agenda of climate-change alarmism. Research papers with scientific findings contrary to the dogma of climate calamity are rejected by reviewers, many of whom fear that their research funding will be cut if any doubt is cast on the coming climate catastrophe. – Princeton University Physicist Dr. Will Happer
U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works :: Minority Page

THIS is why scientific organisations today have – tragically – become almost the last places to hear the truth about climate change. Too many jobs, egos, reputations and money are now at stake.
