Victory in Vermont: Community Defenders Crush Wind Power Outfit’s Plan to Destroy Pristine Mountain Range

It’s hard to even believe there’s a mere dispute between climate-obsessed-CO2-green-eco-nuts and other nature lovers over the decimation of pristine landscapes to make way for weather dependent industrial windmills (backed up 24/7/365 by fossil fuels) that are meant to “Save the planet”!?

STOP THESE THINGS

Annette Smith savours the coolest of her many successes.

STT has covered the fight by Vermonters to save their pristine Green Mountains from the scourge of industrial wind turbines, many times.

In this post we share in their delight, as they celebrate their successful battle to save the Herrick Mountain range in Ira and Poultney, next to Birdseye Mountain from 60 of these things – aka 160m high, 290 tonne, subsidy-sucking bird and bat killers.

Thanks to the organized efforts of Vermonters for a Clean Environment, headed by Annette Smith (above) and Justin Lindholm, the mountains in the background are now and forever a state wildlife management area, instead of an industrial wind power factory.

NYT Readers Face Diversity

On Climate Religion:

In a November 2011 column The great global warming fizzle, Stephens described ‘the case of global warming’ as a ‘system of doomsaying prophecy and faith in things unseen’ that, like religion, ‘is susceptible to the earthly temptations of money, power, politics, arrogance and deceit.’

Consider the case of global warming, another system of doomsaying prophecy and faith in things unseen.

“As with religion, it is presided over by a caste of spectacularly unattractive people pretending to an obscure form of knowledge that promises to make the seas retreat and the winds abate.

As with religion, it comes with an elaborate list of virtues, vices and indulgences.

As with religion, its claims are often non-falsifiable, hence the convenience of the term “climate change” when thermometers don’t oblige the expected trend lines.

As with religion, it is harsh toward skeptics, heretics and other “deniers.” And as with religion, it is susceptible to the earthly temptations of money, power, politics, arrogance and deceit.”

Imaginary Enemies

A lot of fuss is in the media about the New York Times hiring Bret Stephens from the Washington Post. Stephens won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is regarded as a conservative, and has written critically about Trump, as well as liberals. In particular he has poked fun repeatedly at the climatism hysteria. For this latter point, the climate faithful are up in arms about the prospect of Stephens columns appearing on pages of NYT (a kind a bible for liberals and environmentalists).

For sure Bret Stephens is as outspoken as Mark Steyn, but with his own preoccupations and style. To see what might be in store for NYT readers, let’s look at some excerpts of his commentary regarding global warming/climate change. Note: Washington Post has a paywall, so links to these articles go to blogsites where the full text is available.

In 2014 Stephens published Climate…

The Sixth Thing To Know About Climate Change–Nat Geographic

PART 6 – “There are many threats facing eco systems, but a barely noticeable increase in temperature is not one of them.”

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

In 1982, HH Lamb wrote about how the ranges of birds and fishes had moved poleward in the first half of the 20thC.

When the Earth started cooling around 1960, this movement was reversed. All that animal and plant species are doing is returning to where they were a half a century or so ago.

Antarctic Peninsula Cooled Nearly 1°C During 1999–2014

It’s no wonder the global warming goons don’t dare speak Antarctica 🇦🇶

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

The Antarctic Peninsula has widely been reported as one of the fastest warming places on Earth, and therefore evidence of global warming.

As I have pointed out before though, the warming actually stopped in the mid 1990s, and was actually a weather related event, due to changing wind patterns.

Now, as the GWPF report, scientists have confirmed that the region has actually been cooling since 1999:
