The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism

The Mad, Mad, Mad World ofClimatism
As reported by Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition:


The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism, by Steve Goreham, Executive Director of the Climate Science Coalition of America (CSCA).

Is it true that:
• By changing our light bulbs, we can save polar bears?
• By driving electric cars, we can stop the seas from rising?
• By building wind turbine towers, we can make the hurricanes less severe?

It’s all part of this Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism.  But the good news is that, contrary to what our newspaper, our professor, and our political leader tells us, global warming is natural and cars are innocent.

The first book on climate change that is fun to read!

Germany turns to coal fired power

As reported by Bloomberg:

Germany’s largest utilities RWE and EON AG (EOAN) are shunning cleaner-burning natural gas because it’s more costly, while the collapsing cost of carbon permits means there’s little penalty for burning coal. Wind and solar projects, central to Germany’s plans to reduce nuclear energy and cut the release of heat- trapping gases, can’t produce electricity around the clock.
How far will the carbon credits collapse before Australia links to them?
Germany’s increasing coal consumption is part of a global return to the fossil fuel that’s cheaper than most alternatives.
Why then does Australia have  ner to the costliest power in the world?

POWER TRIP: Australian electricity price high, and to rise with carbon tax. (Link)

  • Charges 70 per cent higher than the American average
  • A figure that will grow to 160 per cent in two years
  • Exposes myth that Australian electricity is relatively cheap
