9 Inches Of Global Warming In EU Front Yards

Cancun climate conference: the warmists’ last Mexican wave

The global warming scare was fun while it lasted, but the joke’s over, says Christopher Booker.

” …The prediction that global temperatures will rise by four degrees in 50 years comes from that same UK Met Office computer which five weeks ago was telling us we were about to enjoy a “milder than average” winter, after three years when it has consistently got every one of its winter and summer forecasts hopelessly wrong. (And the reason why our local authorities are already fast running out of salt is that they were silly enough to believe them.)

When Vicky Pope, the Met Office’s Head of Climate Change Advice, wanted to fly out from Gatwick to Cancun to tell them that 2010 is the hottest year on record, she was trapped by inches of the same global warming that her £33 million computer had failed to predict…. “


“Warmest Year On Record” – Yeah – Right!

What happened to the ‘warmest year on record’: The truth is global warming has halted

” …World temperatures, it went on, were locked inexorably into an everrising trend: ‘Our experimental decadal forecast confirms previous indications that about half the years 2010-2019 will be warmer than the warmest year observed so far – 1998.’

Met Office officials openly boasted that they hoped by their statements to persuade the Copenhagen gathering to impose new and stringent carbon emission limits – an ambition that was not to be met…. “


Taking Euro Greenies Seriously – Suicidal Indeed

  With smaller EU economies, teetering on the brink, Germany needs wind power like a hole in the head!

A new dark age for Germany?

Offshore wind power projects pave the way to frequent blackouts

” …The other is nuclear plants.  High performance nuclear plants can adjust their electricity to replace the highly variable output from wind farms, but that reduces efficiency and caused irregular burn-up of fuel rods.  This is a serious concern as high efficiency is the primary way nuclear plants recoup their high capital costs.  A bigger concern is that the German government has reversed only partly its decision to phase out all nuclear plants.

However, the lack of suitable backup power generation may still be a relatively small problem.  Billion dollar investments in transmission lines are needed to bring expensive wind power from offshore sites north of Germany to big industrial consumers hundreds of miles south.   Resistance to new high voltage lines in urban and recreational areas is high and rising.

A Lower Saxony law already requires the use of ground cables in certain areas, however, those are ten times more expensive than above-ground lines and less reliable due to constant assault by water, salt and subterranean animal life.

The bottom line is this:  Germans will have to prepare for significantly higher electricity tariffs and more frequent blackouts.  “If all German wind power projects are realized as planned, the country will incur economic losses well over 100 billion Euros by 2010,”  Heinzow reports.  “The only word that describes this ‘world improvement’ strategy is suicidal.””
