All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Hydro Power works; wind power fails.

The attached graph is from the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) in the US Pacific Northwest. It is updated every 5 minutes. (link)

At the time of this graph it can be seen that, as only one day had any significant wind power generation, the people of Bonneville can be thankful that they have Hydro power.


An interesting aside is the fact that power from Bonneville's dam made contributions to the US war effort during WWII. BPA supplied power to shipyards at Portland Oregon and on the Puget Sound in Washington. (link - pdf)
