Indian Village Demands Real Electricity, Not Solar Gimmick

This is very funny:

“Former Chief minister met by village youngsters carrying placards demanding “real source of energy”, and “not the fake solar powered” one.

The least you would expect when you bring electricity to an entire village, ending over three decades of darkness, is a ‘thank you’ from its residents. But no such niceties here in Dharnai, a nondescript village tucked away in the Naxal heartland of Bihar.

The residents of Dharnai are far from satisfied to see lights for the first time in 33 years, courtesy a solar-powered micro-grid set up by the environment watchdog Greenpeace India. They now want asli bijli (real electricity) from the government.”

Arctic Sea Ice Extent Aug 27 2014 – Drop of Only 18,000 Over Last 2 Days

Arctic Sea Ice Extent Aug 27 2014 – -1,069,000 sq km below the 1981-2010 mean. Data for Day 238. Data here.

Drop of Only 18,000 Over Last 2 Days. 2014 seems to be most similar to 2009 and 2013.

2009’s minimum was 5.05488 million sq km on day 255
2013’s minimum was 5.07709 million sq km on day 256

But I’m not making a prediction.

Widespread Methane Leakage Oxidizing Into CO2

Filed under: AGW is a Cult,Methane,Mockery,Morons — sunshinehours1 @ 3:06 PM
Tags: ,

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.
