South Australia’s Repeated Wind Power Blackouts Force Retreat to Fossil-Fuels: Base-load Gas Plant Ordered to Run Constantly

So, it took job losses, heavy-industries to close and relocate, fuel poverty, economic ruin, environmental destruction, bird and bat slaughter, infrasound health atrocities, numerous multi-million dollar blackouts and the internationally famous September statewide blackout, not to mention the international trashing of SA’s business reputation for Australia’s climate-obsessed Government(s) to finally realise that *fossil fuels* are the ONLY genuine source of reliable baseload energy?!

What a disastrous joke the windmill and solar-panel experiment has truly become.

But fear not! Wind weasels and the eco-brainwashed will press on and most likely double-down on their insistence for “unreliable” energy sources in their religious quest to “SAVE THE PLANET”. Even if saving-the-planet means being 100% reliant on fossil fuels – the very energy source they despise!

Let that sink in for a minute.

STOP THESE THINGS

Clueless and desperate, Australia’s political leaders are fiddling while Rome continues to burn.

The calamity that is South Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply chaos, threatens to spread across state borders like a malignant tumour.

While State Labor governments in Queensland and Victoria continue to talk the talk about their desire to carpet their states with tens of thousands of these things, it’s apparent that they’re not so keen to walk the walk.

Rocketing power prices, routine load shedding and statewide blackouts have not only rendered South Australia an international laughing stock, but make it a prescient warning about what happens when ideology trumps common sense, market economics and sound engineering.

The politicised nonsense keeps spewing forth, however.  Twaddle about batteries providing some kind of solution; and pie in the sky waffle about building interconnectors that cost $billions and…

World’s Leading Scientist Says The Arctic Will Be Ice-Free By 2013


THE Worst Scientific Scandal Of Our Generation

30AD1B60-0002-4493-9464-0A0F797BB286

Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to 
know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” – UN IPCC 
Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itohan award-winning PhD environmental physical
chemist.

“It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of 
scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.” – U.S Government
Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of
NOAA.

“Global warming-at least the modern nightmare version – is a myth. I am sure of it and so are a growing number of scientists. But what is really worrying is that the world’s politicians and policy makers are not.” – David Bellamy, Daily Mail, July 9, 2004

“The whole climate change issue is about to fall apart — Heads will roll!” – South African UN Scientist Dr. Will Alexander, April 12, 2009

“I am a skeptic…Global warming has become a new religion.” – Nobel Prize Winner for
Physics, Ivar Giaever.

THREE Short Videos and a Documentary That Destroy Man-Made Global Warming Hysteria :

1. Dr Don Easterbrook Exposes Climate Change Hoax

Don J. Easterbrook PhD., Professor of Geology, Western Washington University: Testimony before Washington State Senate Committee on climate change.

Expert presentation of climate change facts, data, reality and reason :

Tuesday March 26th 2013, 1:30PM

SENATE ENERGY, ENVIRONMENT & TELECOMMUNICATIONS CMTE.

Public: SHB 1314, SHB 1498, EHB 1826; Work Session: Climate change.

Official ref: Climate Change Presentation before the WA Sate Senate Cmte. 03-26-2013 – 1h 30m

2. Bob Carter: Climate Context As A Basis For Better Policy

A public lecture on “Climate Context as a basis for Better Policy”, given at the University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba, June 2011 by Australian paleoclimatologist Professor Bob Carter.

Robert Merlin “Bob” Carter is a palaeontologist, stratigrapher, marine geologist and former adjunct professorial research fellow in earth sciences at James Cook University, Queensland

3. True News: The Case Against Climate Change

Melting Watergate – First rate summary of facts and figures that oppose the prevailing hysteria about global warming climate change. From Freedomain Radio.

4. The Great Global Warming Swindle (Full Movie)

The documentary that *completely* turned me into a man-made global warming ‘sceptic’, after being largely convinced by Al Gore’s propaganda flick “An Inconvenient Truth”…

Inconveniently for Al, a year after his movies release, a British High Court judge cited 9 key errors, that had arisen “in the context of alarmism and exaggeration” in order to support Mr Gore’s thesis on global warming. Judge Burton noted the “apocalyptic vision” presented in the film was politically partisan and thus not an impartial scientific analysis of climate change. It was also ruled, a “political film.”

In order to be shown in British schools, Judge Burton ruled that 77 pages of supporting documentation would be required as reference material.

However, the damage was done and Gore’s silver-screen alarmist fraud swept the world, gobbling up the gullible with catastrophic ease.

Thankfully the sceptical truth-seeker in me (that we should all unleash as a matter of scientific course) shone through, and I investigated for myself the dogmatic claims of climate catastrophe that hummed through the mainstream. And after seeing the “The Great Global Warming Swindle” my scepticism was solidified.

This excellent documentary provides a concise, and profoundly more ‘scientific’ narrative, in rebuttal to Gore’s political alarmism.

Originally broadcasted March 8, 2007 on British Channel 4.

Documentary, by British television producer Martin Durkin, which argues against the virtually unchallenged consensus that global warming is man-made. A statement from the makers of this film asserts that the scientific theory of anthropogenic global warming could very well be “the biggest scam of modern times.”

A must see for truth-seekers everywhere…

Effects of climate change in California are ‘significant and growing’

Environmental shifts, such as higher sea temperatures and shrinking glaciers in the Sierra Nevada, point to overwhelming evidence of climate change, state scientists say. 

California is feeling the effects of climate change far and wide, as heat-trapping greenhouse gases reduce spring runoff from the Sierra Nevada, make the waters of Monterey Bay more acidic and shorten winter chill periods required to grow fruit and nuts in the Central Valley, a new report says.

US ‘EXTREME CLIMATE’ CHECK:

  • The graph below provides a remarkable insight into the ongoing US “intense hurricane drought.” It is now 2,862 days or nearly 8 years since the last time an intense (that is a Category 3, 4 or 5) hurricane made landfall along the US coast (Wilma in 2005). Such a prolonged period without an intense hurricane landfall has not been observed since 1900.
