Midweek climate roundup 26 September

Update and off topic. Guess who are 40% of German welfare recipients.

Jo Nova on the breaking bubble of RE investment in Australia. Also on cherry-picking data by NASA and others.

Big piece on Will Happer, Trump’s go-to man on science. Check out The Best Schools site where it came from. One of their lists is Intriguing People and Institutions including the top 25 behavioral economists and the top 15 climate scientists.

The Lancet paper on heat and cold related deaths. A thorough world-wide survey. The result is not surprising. How many people are likely to die from heat if they are not exposed to direct sunlight or dehydrated? Affordable heating and cooling might make a difference.

In total, 7·71% of mortality was attributable to non-optimum temperature in the selected countries within the study period, with substantial differences between countries, ranging from 3·37% in Thailand to 11·00% in China. More temperature-attributable deaths were caused by cold (7·29%) than by heat (0·42%).

Depressing Parliamentary congo line of climate retards. h/t mem Every side of politics in the House parading their climate virtues!

    ABC RN went full climate retard this morning just after 7.30am. First they had on John Pearce who is something like head of NEMO Commission. He stated the reason power prices have gone up is gold plating of infrasctructure, but much of that money has been wasted and now as inefficient coal is taken out of the system, the infrastructure will have to change to meet the requirements of the more efficient wind and solar. In other words, wind and solar will lower prices and coal has driven them up.

    Then they wheeled out Nerilie Abraham, Australian who is lead author of the latest IPCC report and she warned how we the oceans are warming and filling with CO2 and losing oxygen and we are approaching runaway climate change and all the models point to this. Ie, the scare campaign they have been running for twenty years now and with the usual caveat, that we still have a chance to save the planet.

    RN was also spruiking about how activist pressure must be ramped up on the banks to pressure them into refusing investment in coal/oil.

    Low wind day yesterday and today.
    Total energy generation at 6:30pm on 25 September was 24.6GW.
    Solar output was zero as it was night time despite there being 11GW of capacity.
    Wind output was 0.3GW despite there being 6.7GW of capacity.

    Luckily black coal output could ramp up 2GW to meet demand.

    It has been revealed that young Greta is a registered child actor with an agent https://www.michaelsmithnews.com/2019/09/the-young-actress-greta-thurnbergs-imdb-page-lists-her-acting-credits-with-contact-details-for-her-a.html

    Nothing is what it seems when it comes to the climate scam.

    Another thing about what John Pearce of the NEMO said, is that if all the money spent over the past twenty years ‘gold plating’ the system was wasted, then consumers have been ripped off by complete shonks. Shonks who made a fortune out of the poor and never got prosecuted. He is in effect saying ‘don’t worry, although you paid for junk, just trust us for the future.’

    Is Ocean acidification the new acid rain?

    Jo Nova on the breaking bubble of RE investment in Australia.

    This wouldn’t be happening if we had an energy policy!

    Shonks who made a fortune out of the poor and never got prosecuted.

    In QLD, where power assets are state owned, that was the ALP government, who were ripping off consumers on prices to boost treasury’s coffers. Up the workers!

    I recall the reading on this blog how the climate frightbats were organising a global msm propaganda event. All levels of msm were encouraged to run climate story special features and collegial journos would provide assist the stories. 9-10 suggested stories were distributed.
    Did this not happen? Or did this movement get lost in the swamp with of climate stories that msm run 24-7?

    If the oceans are warming, they will be expelling CO2.

    BJ – agree, that is what she said. It was a typical apocalyptic climate scare talk. Hiding unmeasured heat in the oceans is not science anyway, it is guesswork.

    ABC RN went full climate retard this afternoon on World Today. A real estate agent from Newcastle described how the ocean is rushing in to take his childhood beach away etc etc.
    The thought crossed my mind that with all this acidifying ocean talk, maybe coral bleaching is nature’s response, all that calcium carbonate doncha know. Putting such a proposition to the real estate agent would probably blow his mind!
    Fun times.
