Perth water utility pleads for more water

Warwick Hughes takes yet another look at the absurd mismanagement of water supply to the capital city of Western Australia.

The solutions to Perth water problems are not hard to grasp

He clearly illustrates, using the rainfall figures for the catchment areas, that the efficiency of catchments has been degraded since the 1990’s.

Perth Dams- Warwick Hughes

Water Corporation persists in using Perth rainfall figures to justify why there is less streamflow into the reservoirs; but none of Perth’s rainfall runs up the hills to the streams running into the catchments.

It seems that successive State Governments and Water Corporation have done nothing more than “managing” the problem towards its ultimate outcome; resulting in the dams being entirely ineffective and the population having to pay dearly for less and less potable water.

The #dieselgate Crusade

If there is no physical evidence required for prosecution; simply an allegation of a possibility of harm in the indefinite future, then you’ve built yourself a happy tyranny.

#NOAAgate: NOAA goes into Global Hiding

#NOAAgate

Via Scottish Sceptic

An Editorial of the Las Vegas Review-Journal says that NOAA goes into global hiding:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the country’s taxpayer-funded scientific authority on all things sea and air, is behind new research that bolsters the assertion that the planet is warming. A growing body of recent research has identified a warming “pause,” or at least a slowdown in temperature increases, over the past 15 years. These data have hurt the arguments of climate change defenders, who insist that urgent, sweeping government action is needed to slow down global warming. Because warming already has slowed without such Draconian action, costly new regulations clearly aren’t needed at all.

NOAA Idea of the Political Climate

Image source NOAA Via Breitbart

NOAA is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States of America has been promoting the notion of catastrophic climate change produced by man-made emissions of CO2 gas by burning carbon-based fuels.

Mike Hasler who blogs as Scottish Sceptic has been keeping his finger on the quickening pulse of NOAAgate. It looks like some funny business going on with how NOAA is arousing data before presenting it to the people who need to make decisions based on the results.

Here’s a summary of the story so far: Continue reading

Was haben Diesel und Atomkraftwerke gemeinsam?

Change of scenery: A blog entry in German.

[Ich schreibe selten auf deutsch. Rechtschreibefehler bitte entschuldigen.]

Würde die Bevölkerung im Allgemein das verstehen, hätten die Bangemacher weniger Brennstoff. Etwas Wahrheit.

Verbrechen gegen den Staat um absichtlich die Regeln zu umgehen. Größeres Verbrechen gegen Bevölkerung, Kunden und Ingenieurwesen war die Regeln ohne Streit zu akzeptieren. Es war angeblich nicht möglich die Vorgaben, kosten- und zeit-gemäß zu erreichen. Wozu hat VW eigentlich so viele Juristen? X( Regeln gehören doch der Machbarkeit angemessen.

Zudem kommen noch die praxisfernen Tests die Umgehung so leicht machen.

Die erlaubten Grenzwerte wurden nicht technisch bestimmt. Sie entstanden hauptsächlich durch politische Verhandlungen. Niemand am Tisch hat berechnet wieviel NOx ein Fahrzeug ausstoßen kann ohne die “Umwelt” und/oder die Gesundheit zu beeinträchtigen. Das kann man auch nicht. Es gibt nur Milchmädchen(hoch)rechnungen.

In der Praxis sieht man deutlich daß die neueren Regeln von Pkw-Abgasen keine sauberere Luft schaffen. In vergleichbaren Städten ist die Luft genauso sauber wie in den grünen Umweltzonen.

Also; was soll der Quatsch?

Renewable Energy Policy Based on Naivety, Ignorance, Ideology, Illusions and False Incentives

Pierre Gosselin reported at NoTricksZone:

Professor Blasts German Renewable Energy Policy! “Based On Naivety, Ignorance, Ideology, Illusions, False Incentives”!

Germany’s online business news magazine WirtschaftsWoche (business week) here has an interview with Professor Gonde Dittmer (right), who claims Germany’s transition to renewable energies so far has been a grand failure. The title of the WirtschaftsWoche piece:

“Doubts over the government’s climate policy. The true aim of the Energiewende is not environmental protection.”

An illusion…not a single kilogram CO2 saved

Dittmer, a professor of mathematics and electrical engineering, tells WirtschaftsWoche that all the solar and wind energy installed so far has not saved a single kilogram of CO2 and that these renewable energies are not green at all.

Huge tab for the public

Absurd

He also believes that the electric cars will be a folly because much of the energy gets wasted and that they would only further burden the current supply system.

Germany will never run on solar power. Here is why

Germany’s solar folly.

Carbon Counter

If you rely too heavily on social media for your information, you are liable to believe that Germany now gets half of its energy from solar panels. The reality of course is that Germany gets nowhere near to half of its energy or electricity needs from solar panels. Far from it.

Last year, 5.7% of Germany’s electricity generation and 2.5% of primary energy consumption came from solar panels (BP Statistical Review of World Energy). The contribution solar panels make towards Germany’s renewable energy target (which uses the final energy consumption metric) is even lower. Less than 1.5% of German final energy consumption now comes from solar panels according to Eurostat.

Green Mythology and the High Price of European Electricity

Euan Mearns writes at Energy Matters

Electricity Price vs Wind+Solar

The price of residential electricity in the EU is correlated with the level of renewable energy installed on a per capita basis. The data shows that more renewables leads to higher electricity bills. The notion that renewable energy is cheap is one of five Green energy myths discussed.

The chart shows a strong correlation between per capita Wind+Solar “capacity” and the consumer price of electrical power consumption.; with prices rising significantly when wind or solar capacity is increased.

A further chart indicates that nuclear power generation has no such impact.

Bureau Just Makes Stuff Up: Deniliquin Remodelled so Rutherglen can be Homogenized

Jennifer Marohasy BSc PhD

Dr Marohasy

Dr Jennifer Marohasy reports on her blog:

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology just makes stuff up. You may remember Rutherglen, that town in north eastern Victoria, Australia, where the Bureau changed a slight cooling trend in the minimum temperatures to catastrophic global warming? After they were caught-out, they claimed the “adjustments” were necessary because there had been a site move. That’s right, moving a weather station between paddocks changed a cooling trend of 0.35 degree Celsius per century into a warming trend of 1.7 degree Celsius!

The Bureau, it seems, will continue to fabricate data to make weather records comply with the official projections deified by a soup of computers. Dr Marohasy is asking the Ministry of Truth Bureau of Meteorology for an explanation. See the complete blog article for the details.
