Whatever Happened Around 1750 Saved Humanity

Returning to the PAGES2K graph from the Climate Audit post  …

Whatever happened around 1750 or so saved humanity from freezing to death. It doesn’t matter if it was CO2 (unlikely) or natural variation. We didn’t freeze to death. We should rejoice

 

Whatever Happened Here

Big Green Blob Out To Destroy UK

Big Green Blob

The Mail on Sunday today exposes how a ‘Green Blob’ financed by a shadowy group of hugely wealthy foreign donors is driving Britain towards economically ruinous eco targets.

DRAX – Grotesque Environmental Charade

Tags: , , ,

The Big Crazy Forest killing DRAX is still destroying the environment.

Drax’s conversion to run half of its output on biomass means it will have to rely on wood from trees cut down in forests in America. The Sixties power station’s giant furnaces are being loaded with wood pellets carried 3,800 miles across the Atlantic in diesel-guzzling ships.

This grotesque environmental charade is being funded by government subsidies for the conversion of its coal-burning furnaces to biomass ones, which will put an estimated £23 on every family’s annual household energy bills for the next 13 years.

The vast generators of Drax are now living, humming, forest-destroying symbols of the shameful absurdity of European energy policies, and an extraordinary rebuke to this Coalition government, which claims, ever more ludicrously, to be saving the planet.

Already, the power station imports more than one million metric tons of wood pellets from the U.S. Much of this is derived from ancient deciduous trees in North Carolina.

Three months ago, 60 eminent American scientists wrote to Ed Davey pleading with him to stop ignoring the basic science and pressing on with a policy that was denuding their glorious forests.

They wrote: ‘Recent advances in science and accounting for pollution from different types of woody biomass have clarified that burning trees to produce electricity actually increases carbon emissions compared with fossil fuels for many decades and contributes to other air pollution problems.’

To Save the Planet, Don’t Plant Trees

Seriously. Quit with the tree planting. Stop it.

“Climate scientists have calculated the effect of increasing forest cover on surface temperature. Their conclusion is that planting trees in the tropics would lead to cooling, but in colder regions, it would cause warming.”

Oooops. Germany Forgot About Eclipses

Oooops. Germany Forgot About Eclipses and their effect on a power grid with lots of expensive solar.

The German power grid operators are dreading March 20, 2015. On this day Germany will see a partial solar eclipse during the morning. Should there be no clouds in the sky at this time, all solar power generating systems all over the country would be feeding in drastically less power into the grid in just a matter of minutes – and the grids would become dangerously destabilized.”

Europe To Burn Dirty Filthy Lignite Instead of Clean Fracked Natural Gas (or Nuclear)

Green fanatics have worked really, really hard to prevent fracking in Europe. And to shut down nuclear power plants.

So what happens? A huge number of lignite power plants are being built. Lignite is filthy coal. High CO2 coal.  Lignite produces 80% more CO2 per kWh than natural gas.

Stupid Green Policies have consequences.

Lignite – also known as brown coal – power stations currently make up more than 10% of the EU’s total CO2 emissions. Greenpeace said that if Europe is to continue to play its part in keeping the world within the internationally accepted limit of 2C of warming, 90% of the carbon contained in its lignite reserves must remain buried.

Despite this, lignite-fuelled power stations are still being built, locking in consumption of the fuel for decades. There are 19 such facilities in various stages of approval, planning or construction in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Germany, Poland, Romania and Slovenia. Greenpeace figures show these new projects alone would emit almost 120m tonnes of CO2 every year – equivalent to three-quarters of the annual carbon output of the UK’s energy sector. The average lifespan for a coal power station is about 40 years, meaning the plants could release nearly 5bn tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.”

Widespread Methane Leakage Oxidizing Into CO2

Widespread methane leakage from the sea floor on the northern US Atlantic margin.

“In an area between North Carolina and Massachusetts, they have now found at least 570 seeps at varying depths between 50m and 1,700m. [...] The scientists say there could be about 30,000 of these hidden methane vents worldwide.

“The methane is dissolving into the ocean at depths of hundreds of metres and being oxidised to CO2,” said [Prof Adam Skarke from Mississippi State University, who led the study].

http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/ngeo2232.html

“Contemporary upper-slope seepage there may be triggered by ongoing warming of intermediate waters, but authigenic carbonates observed imply that emissions have continued for more than 1,000 years at some seeps.”

Translation: We’d love to blame global warming … but since it has been going on for 1,000 years … we can’t … unless you are dumb.

63% of Plants Prefer It To Be Warmer!!!!!!!

Filed under: AGW is a Cult,Cold Kills,Mockery — sunshinehours1 @ 9:00 AM

This is huge. And logical. Only idiots thought plants prefer freezing to death.

“Not all species flee rising temperatures. As the mercury has inched upward across western North America over the last 40 years, many plant species have moved downhill, toward—not away from—warmer climates, according to the results of a new study.

The finding adds to growing evidence that temperature isn’t the only factor influencing how Earth’s life will respond to climate change.”

 

Isn’t that last sentence hilarious? “Temperature isn’t the only factor …’ Well DUH! But unfortunately the AGW cult has twisted science so much that many are surprised that plants might like it warmer than colder.

 

“The results of the analysis were unexpected. More than 60% of plants shifted their distributions downward, toward warmer, lower elevations—despite significant climate warming across the regions under study, the team reported online on 24 July in Global Change Biology. Even more striking, all plants within a region—regardless of species—moved in the same direction.”

What a shocker eh? Given a choice between the cold of the 1970s, plants like it warmer. Who would have thought? …. Only people with a brain thought that!
