The percentage of the time that the renewable resources produce power is really low. In Germany, the number one example of the energy shift, solar produces its rated power output just 11% of the time, which means you need a backup for 89 % of the time. For wind, the numbers are better but they also remain between 15 to 25 % so again, 85–75% of the time so they will also require a substantial backup.

The release of above movie is a major blow to the renewable power industry and the tens of thousands of climate functionaries that have been using a trace gas as a meal ticket– the same people whose light-fingered heirs

had gathered in Paris to lock us into this climate change madness. In short, it demonstrates many of the shortcomings and paradoxes of the renewable energy sector. The irony is that the attacks are from a leftist, climate alarmist perspective rather than from a moderate/conservative point of view.

Meanwhile China, who have pledged to begin reducing emissions by 2030, is building an insane number of coal fired power stations.

China has 121 gigawatts of coal plants under construction, which is more than is being built in the rest of the world combined. … As China opened itself to market reforms, it accelerated economic development, and its energy supply simply couldn’t keep up.

A Country carpeted with wind turbines with its rooftops glistening with solar panels is the product of one thing: endless and massive subsidies. Cut the subsidies, and the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, would resolve itself in a heartbeat.

The massive battery, (left) the largest in the world in energy terms, delivers just 50 MW for six hours. After that, it’s empty.

One myth that pervades political discourse in this Country at the moment, is the story that subsidies for wind and solar are now a thing of the past. he past. Federal Treasurer, Scott Morrison was leading with his chin when he announced a couple of weeks back that: “The days of subsidising energy are over whether it’s for coal, wind, solar, any of them.”

We all might wish. However, Scott’s bold claim is, of course, utter bunkum.

The nonsense seems to have taken hold as a result of talk about the National Energy Guarantee. We’ll hand over to The Australian’s, Nick Cater for some insight on the NEG, before dealing with the “subsidies are over” furphy.

The COVID-19 pandemic has added fresh rancour to the climate change/subsidy debate. It has given the world a living example of what would happen if the hardline demands of climate-change activists were met.

A collapse of industrial production and an end to international air travel have drastically cut global carbon dioxide emissions. Environmental activists have said the results were bad for some humans and the economy but “fantastic for the environment”.

“Dear Greta,” former television meteorologist and popular US climate change blogger Anthony Watts began in an open letter to teenage climate campaigner Greta Thunberg last week. “So you got what you wanted. System change & economic slowdown is a real thing now. Airplanes, industry, jobs, restaurants, recreation, and schools are all shut down. Instead we have fear, poverty, misery, joblessness, economic ruin, and a bleak future. Happy now?”

    In years to come Greta will hate these people who have used her as a front, a marionette they can control to influence the young people of the world that we face mass extinction due to climate change—-hiding behind a child who will bear the brunt of all this silliness as she grows older. If you ask her too many questions it is regarded as bullying. They prepare a list of answers to questions she might be asked at press conferences. How convincing is their cause that they have to use a child as a shield.

    The Green movement won’t allow Nuclear Power to generate electricity because there are no emissions. What! Yes its true, if there is a sharp fall in CO2 levels the Global Warming industry gravy train will collapse.

    Coldest day in Melbourne since records began, how can that be if the world has been warming for more than 140 years? We were also told that snow would eventually be a thing of the past yet we are experiencing substantial falls in early May.The USA winter was one of its coldest. Tim Flannery said our dams would never fill yet we have already had a year’s rainfall.
    The Netherlands has announced it will now build Nuclear Power stations. If emissions are causing climate change then the world must do the same.

    This report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 95 years ago.
    The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate at Bergen Norway.
    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.
    Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
    Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.
    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.
    Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.
    This must have been caused by the Model T Ford’s emissions or possibly from horse and cattle flatulence.

    It will be interesting to see what the level CO2 ppm emissions will be for 2020 and whether there will be a slow down in the rate as a result of all the restrictions on global industries and businesses. I doubt that any pause in the use of fossil fuels would have any effect on the steady rise which has been occurring since the Little Ice Age which ended in around 1860.
    Of course China will continue burning our coal to manufacture turbines, solar panels and batteries for export to Australia.

  6. Sando says:

    If there is any silver lining with this worldwide Covid-19 contagion it will surely be the end of the global warming con. It is the jolt of reality we had to have to end it. They will keep trying to scare us in the years to come but it won’t work because we now know what a real crisis looks like.

  7. Geraldene says:

    Nuclear energy will lead the way in the world economic recovery and there is nothing the socialist can do to stop it. There is now a real emergency and they must get out of the way. We were conned into this ridiculous Paris Accord, thanks to the ghost, while China is allowed to burn coal like it is going out of fashion. Lies and fudging temperature won’t help them ……they have done their dash period.
