AGL and the many other corporate-welfare-dependant (foreign owned) industrial wind farm monoliths are *absolute* mongrels.
Foreign owned mega companies; surviving, thriving and competing (only) through subsidies, blood-sucked from the taxpayer via eco-brainwashed governments, resulting in the complete destruction of the lives and livelihoods of hard working taxpayers, like those of Anne Gardner.
This incredibly sad story needs to be shared far and wide, highlighting the true damage done to the environment and its inhabitants, both flora and fauna, in the virtue-signalling name of “Saving the Planet”.
Thank you STT for posting this 🌱
‘Wicked’ and ‘wanton’ doesn’t quite capture the manner in which wind power outfit, AGL behaves towards its victims.
Spearing hundreds of these things into the heart of (once) peaceful and prosperous rural communities would be bad enough, but treating those that suffer the consequences – such as the chronic sleep deprivation caused by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound – with merciless ridicule and contempt takes their corporate mantle into the realms of the despicable; or, in the language thrown around in Australian pubs: ‘first class mongrels’.
It’s a tag well-deserved – as 2GB’s Alan Jones lays out in this interview from 23 September with one of AGL’s most stoic victims, STT Champion, Annie Gardner (audio link below with transcript following).

Since hitting its earliest minimum extent since 1997, Arctic sea ice has been expanding at a phenomenal rate.
Already it is greater than at the same date in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015. Put another way, it is the fourth highest extent in the last ten years.
Even more remarkably, ice growth since the start of the month is actually the greatest on record, since daily figures started to be kept in 1987.
Experts call this phenomenon the final collapse of sea ice!
The inconvenient truth about – colourless, odourless, plant food, life supporting, and essential trace gas CO2 – brilliantly communicated by Dr Guy LeBlanc Smith, former Principal Research Scientist at the now ‘warmist’ CSIRO.
“I am a concerned professional research scientist with over 30 years experience, latter part with CSIRO as a Principal Research Scientist. *As my funding no longer depends on politicians, I am free to make my information and conclusions public*.
The real world evidence such as revealed in the ice cores suggests that the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme is built on fraud.”
Excellent read via Ron Clutz’s ‘Science Matters’…
An Historical, not Hysterical Perspective
Much of the hysteria over atmospheric CO2 arises from dismissing the past, and thus losing the context for interpreting the present. Recently, one scientist suggested that climate researchers should be schooled in geology before commenting on climate change. Instead of that, of course, most of them are based in environmentalism. So as a public service this post presents some excellent and time-tested evidence produced by Dr Guy LeBlanc Smith. h/t Jeff Hayes
This graph, compiled by Ex-CSIRO scientist Dr Guy LeBlanc Smith PhD, AIG, AAPG, from data obtained from deep core drilling on the Greenland Ice Sheet, shows that all life on earth now, including polar bears, coral reefs and humans, have survived massive sea level changes and rapid and dramatic changes in earth’s temperature. There were no coal fired power stations and no gas guzzling cars to cause these changes then, and the same natural forces will change the future. Humans will…

“It’s much easier to solve an imaginary problem than a real one.” – Sir Humphrey Appleby
…and “saving the planet” the ideal header on the CV of Ban Ki-Moon and fellow virtue-signalling, climate change elites.
Over 10 million ordinary people have told the UN what matters most to them, and here are the results.
According to this huge UN survey, good education, healthcare and jobs are far and away the top priorities. And way down at the bottom is “Action taken on climate change.” You would think that the UN Secretary-General would have many things on his plate, and even “Phone and Internet Access” comes ahead of climate change.
Yet because Ki-moon is seeking a legacy in bringing the Paris accord into force, that last-place concern is at the top of his agenda.
In a previous post Hammer and Nail I suggested that climate activists like Ban Ki-Moon are working on their own needs for esteem and self-actualization, while most of the world are struggling with the most basic needs. This survey proves that point, especially when charts show that only in richer…

“Hottest Year Evah” update…
A new study from USGS by Keven Gallo and George Xian verifies what we’ve already learned and published on via the Surface Stations project; that concrete and asphalt (aka impervious surfaces) have increased near weather stations that are used to monitor climate. In this case, it is the much studied USHCN, that climate network I presented a poster on at AGU 2015. Details here.
What is most important about this paper is that it quantifies the percentage of stations that have had increased amounts of impervious surface area getting closer to the stations. As I have long since maintained, such things act as heat sinks, which increase the night-time temperature when they released the stored energy from the sun that was absorbed during the day as infrared, warming the air near the thermometer, and thus biasing the minimum temperature upwards.

But the (missing) “Hotspot” exists in junk-in, junk-out computer models, which are apparently evidence enough to justify the destruction of capitalism, and the spending of trillions of taxpayers $£€¥ on useless schemes and scams in a hubristic attempt to control the weather and halt an increment of (modelled) warning that, most probably, would be beneficial to humanity.
The “Missing Hotspot” IMHO is one of the most important (missing) pieces of the global warming aka climate change debate…
No Hotspot = Global Warming theory fail.
One of the main lines of evidence used by the Obama administration to justify its global warming regulations doesn’t exist in the real world, according to a new report by climate researchers.
Guest essay by Michael Bastasch, reprinted with permission
Researchers analyzed temperature observations from satellites, weather balloons, weather stations and buoys and found the so-called “tropical hotspot” relied upon by the EPA to declare carbon dioxide a pollutant “simply does not exist in the real world.”
They found that once El Ninos are taken into account, “there is no ‘record setting’ warming to be concerned about.”
“These analysis results would appear to leave very, very little doubt but that EPA’s claim of a Tropical Hot Spot (THS), caused by rising atmospheric CO2 levels, simply does not exist in the real world,” reads the report…

“Too bad so much effort and funding is wasted on IPCC circuses.”
The global warming aka climate change meme is simply the latest attempt by leftists to trick society into remaking itself in their image. It was never about science. It was always about power and money.
Warming alarmists see no good coming out of rising CO2 and the current climate optimum, and their warnings extend to forests as well. So in love with their theory of global warming, they cannot see the forests as they are, and as documented in numerous research studies.
Claim: Forest growth is diminished by higher CO2 and warmer summers.
Fact: CO2 increases have improved forest health.
Claim: Forest areas will be hard-hit by future droughts.
Fact: No trend in droughts is discernible.
Claim: Warmer temperatures increase damage from pests and pathogens.
Fact: Enhanced CO2 is making forests more resilient to diseases and infestations.
Claim: Old growth forests will not sequester CO2 as young forests do.
Fact: Rising CO2 has given new life even to aging forests.

Almost ALL C3 pathway vegetation (trees, bushes, wheat, rice and 95% of all plants) are CO2-starved except in extremely…
