Alan Jones Slams Subsidised Wind Power & Dr Mariana Alves Pereira Slams Wind Industry’s ‘Nocebo’ NonsensePosted: November 1, 2016
“Frydenberg appears to believe that if he closes his eyes and holds his breath the whole thing will blow over. However, unable to bring himself to spell out what everyone in the wind industry knows and dreads – that the ultimate annual 33,000GWh set by the current LRET will never be satisfied and, accordingly, will need to be slashed, yet again – Frydenberg continues to live in a fantasy world, where the wind blows at 11m/s 24 x 365 and voters couldn’t care less about rocketing power prices, routine load shedding and statewide blackouts. It’s a dangerous delusion, to be sure.
If Frydenberg wishes to continue pandering to the catastrophic global warming crowd, he needs to front up and deliver an ultimatum:
– if CO2 gas really is destroying the planet (as the wind cult zealously allege), then the only practical solution is for Australia to build latest generation nuclear power plants to replace all of those wretchedly “dirty” coal-fired plants (that still, magically, keep the lights on and the beer cold).
– If the CO2-gas-fear-mongers were really in earnest, they would be pushing for nuclear power, rather than continuing their infantile push for wind and solar.”

STT champion, Alan Jones is absolutely on fire. Before kicking off an utterly brilliant interview with Dr Mariana Alves-Pereira, Alan rips into the Liberal Coalition’s Energy and Environment Minister, Josh Frydenberg.
Frydenberg is juggling a politically poisoned chalice, overflowing with the voter backlash that’s brewing in South Australia – due to its wind powered pricing and supply calamity – a debacle that’s all been driven by the Federal Government’s Large-Scale RET; which, if it isn’t dropped now, threatens to wreck the grids and economies of any other State that is foolish enough to follow SA’s disastrous lead.

Inconvenient empirical evidence UPDATE…
The simple fact is that if polar bear experts had been right about the threat to polar bears from the loss of summer sea ice in the Arctic, there would be no polar bears in Churchill this fall. No bears for tourists to photograph, none for biologists to study, and certainly none for the BBC to film for an upcoming three-part TV special called “Arctic Live.”
The low-ice future that biologists said would doom polar bears to extinction by 2050 has already happened in 8 out of the last 10 years. The sea ice future has been realized.
Polar bears have experienced those supposedly deadly low-ice summers for almost a decade but the global population did not drop by 2/3 as predicted and not a single one of the ten subpopulations predicted to be extirpated under those conditions has been wiped out.
How much more wrong can you…

Ahh CNN! What we always knew, now proven by WikiLeaks – nothing more than an activist, bought-off, advocacy group for far Left elites & their ruinous agenda.
The (predominantly Leftwing) mainstream media is officially dead.

Clinton lies. Her operatives foment violence at rival campaigns. And she cheats, with CNN now firing a commentator, Donna Brazille, for passing on questions to her before a debate. Questions which Clinton accepted, of course.
Why does the Left pretend to be more moral when they act like skunks?:
CNN has severed ties with the Democratic strategist Donna Brazile, after hacked emails from WikiLeaks showed that she shared questions for CNN-sponsored candidate events in advance with friends on Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Ms. Brazile, a veteran political analyst for the network, was already on leave from CNN since becoming interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. On Monday, CNN said it had accepted her formal resignation on Oct. 14.
“We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,” Lauren Pratapas, a…

The “science” behind AGW is so dodgy, because the science didn’t come first. What came first was the notion that mankind was a problem and was doing harm to the planet. The “science” was then simply tortured until it fitted in with this notion.
‘Fraudulent research makes it past gatekeepers at even the most prestigious journals’
London 31 October: A new report published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation reveals the extent to which current policy-making is reliant on untrustworthy peer-reviewed research, much of which cannot be replicated and “may be simply untrue”.
“Fraudulent research makes it past gatekeepers at even the most prestigious journals,” says Donna Laframboise, the study’s author and the investigative journalist behind the 2011 exposé of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) entitled: The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World’s Top Climate Expert.
The report, entitled Peer Review: Why Skepticism is Essential, describes the peer-review process as “haphazard and byzantine”, raising serious questions about the state of modern science and casting doubt on policies that claim to be ‘evidence-based’.

Every year it seems we get a new study linking cold winters to global warming and “melting” Arctic ice.
Only last month I debunked the latest attempt, and I assumed this must be the same study. Turned out I was wrong!
This is what Unscientific American has to say about the latest paper:

Ssshhh! Don’t mention the sun. It’s not a climate driver according to the UN IPCC who are tasked to link only your CO2 emissions with climate change and tax you accordingly, in order to stop bad weather.
The sun has been completely spotless on 21 days in 2016 and it is currently featuring just one lonely sunspot region.
In fact, on June 4th of this year, the sun went completely spotless for the first time since 2011 and that quiet spell lasted for about four days. Sunspot regions then reappeared for the next few weeks on a sporadic basis, but that was followed by several more completely spotless days on the surface of the sun.
The increasingly frequent blank sun is a sign that the next solar minimum is approaching and there will be an even greater number of spotless days over the next few years. At first, the blankness will stretch for just a few days at a time, then it’ll continue for weeks at a time, and finally it should last for months at a time…
