But… But… But I thought wind power would save the planet!

February 17, 2011

Apparently they don’t do well in harsh winters, which isn’t good for their customers:

A $200-million wind farm in northern New Brunswick is frozen solid, cutting off a supply of renewable energy for NB Power.

The 25-kilometre stretch of wind turbines, 70 kilometres northwest of Bathurst, has been shut down for several weeks due to heavy ice covering the blades. GDF Suez Energy, the company that owns and operates the site, is working to return the windmills to working order, a spokeswoman says.

“We can’t control the weather,” Julie Vitek said from company headquarters in Houston.

No, really?

Let’s see. Wind power has been sold to us by the Green Statists as one of the perfect solutions for a problem that does not exist, anthropogenic global warming. Trouble is, wind turbines are no good when the wind is too slow or too fast. They still require old-fashioned electrical power stations to be online constantly as backups. They are sound neither from an economic nor an engineering standpoint. The need lavish subsidies to turn a profit at all.

And now they can’t keep the heat running when you need it most.

Genius.

Big Green: BP, GE and the World’s First Carbon Billionaires

October 13, 2010

In this third installment of PJTV‘s series on the alliance between environmentalist groups, government, and big business, Joe Hicks and his guests look at who stands to profit from all the Green Statist legislation and regulations the “save the Earth” crowd want to enact. Taking a star turn in this is one of Public Secrets’ favorite global hypocrites, the Goracle himself, Al Gore. Enjoy.

Big Green and the enviro-statist agenda, part 2

October 6, 2010

Last week, PJTV presented the first in its three-part series on the politics of the environmental movement, presenting an overview of its goals and its relationship with government, particularly the Democratic Party and the administrative state.

This week, Joe Hicks and his guests take a closer look at the origins of the movement in the 1960s left-wing counterculture,  the large sums of money they have to spend, and their alliance with big business* to push harmful measures such as cap-and-trade:

*(Don’t be surprised. As Goldberg pointed out in Liberal Fascism, there’s a natural urge in big corporations to ally with statists if if means guaranteed profits and restrictions on smaller competitors. Think of the utilities under FDR, or the deals the big insurance and pharmaceutical companies almost cut with the administration over ObamaCare. The cooperation between Big Green and Big Business highlighted in this video is just another example.)

Big Green and the enviro-statist agenda – updated!

October 1, 2010

Readers of Public Secrets know that I’ve been highly critical (and contemptuous and mocking) of the anthropogenic global warming movement and its silly thesis that mankind is turning this planet into a Steam Bath of Doom. But there’s a larger environmental movement than just the global warming sector, and its goals are ambitious. Far beyond what we would think of as prudent conservation and good stewardship of the land, water, and air, the broader environmental movement seeks the centralization of authority over the environment (and thus us) in Washington and in transnational regulatory agencies. It is well-funded (often with our tax dollars), it is politically powerful, and it is a danger to our prosperity and liberty.

PJTV has begun a series that looks at the environmental movement. Hosted by Joe Hicks, it examines who the players are, where they get their money, and what their goals are. I think it’s well-worth watching for an alternative and critical point of view:

I’ll post follow-up episodes as they appear on PJTV’s YouTube channel.

UPDATE: I missed this until late today, but apparently some eco-fascist group in Britain made a short film to convince people of the need to combat global warming… by showing children who doubt the AGW truth being blown up. Graphically and messily. You can read all about it at Hot Air, but Iowahawk has the best take on it. James Delingpole calls this a massive “own goal” for the Green Statists. Just amazing.


Mr. President, we have plenty of good places to drill

June 16, 2010

Last night, President Obama addressed the nation from the Oval Office to inform us of the steps he’s taken to deal with the horrific oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. To be frank, I didn’t watch. For the 50-plus days oil has been spewing into the Gulf and wrecking local economies and ecologies, I’ve seen his response in action and I haven’t been impressed. Feckless, incompetent half-measures have been matched with an attitude of taking responsibility in name, only.

But, later, I read the speech out of curiosity. Of the many things to say about it (see the links below for good analysis), one item jumped out at me at the point at which the President tried to explain why we were drilling in such risky areas:

After all, oil is a finite resource. We consume more than 20% of the world’s oil, but have less than 2% of the world’s oil reserves. And that’s part of the reason oil companies are drilling a mile beneath the surface of the ocean – because we’re running out of places to drill on land and in shallow water.

(Also here. Emphasis added.)

Huh? To quote the mighty Joe Wilson, “You lie!!”

Okay, maybe he’s not lying, but it’s either that, or he’s ignorant of economics, the recent history of drilling in this country, and the established natural resources of the United States. To be fair, he says “part of the reason,” but it’s a big part of his argument.

And it’s a false part.

Forget for a moment the vast resources sitting off the Atlantic coast, the near-shore Gulf of Mexico, off California, the oil shale of Colorado and neighboring states, and the humongous amount of oil sitting under Alaska and just offshore. Let me provide just one example, which his own Geological Survey could have told him with a 30-second phone call:

In March, 2008, I wrote about the Bakken formation, a large oil bearing area under North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Saskatchewan province. Go ahead, read it for background. I’ll wait.  Whistling

Ah, you’re back. Okay, so the easily recoverable reserves for just North Dakota were estimated at 660 million barrels. A report from the USGS of about the same time puts the recoverable reserves under North Dakota and Montana at 3-4.3 billion barrels.  (See also here) And that still does not include the whole formation. Snopes points out that this would cover US oil imports for roughly only one year, not the 41 years some have hyperventilated over, but that’s a bit of a straw man, for it doesn’t consider other reserves in the US and nearby waters.

But, back to President Obama’s mendacious argument. It’s not that we’re “running out of places to drill;” it’s that government policy has been dominated by environmental reactionaries who opposed any drilling whatsoever onshore and in coastal waters, especially if it gets in the way of the pretty view from their house. That’s been the politics of oil here in California since the 1969 Santa Barbara spill. Since then, even with improvements in drilling technology and safety measures (this latest event aside, US platform drilling has an excellent safety history), it’s been almost impossible to get new drilling off the coast, thanks to a combination of the environmental Left and coastal homeowners playing the role of NIMBY.

It’s this Luddite eco-tyranny that’s lead to drilling in risky areas, such as where the now-destroyed Deepwater Horizon rig was located. By blocking exploration and exploitation in safer, more reasonable areas, the environmentalist Left has helped create the conditions for this catastrophe. No, I’m not excusing BP’s lousy practices or the Fed’s failure to properly supervise them and plan for a catastrophe. But the pressure to drill in riskier deep-water areas, which we first incentivized under Bill Clinton, originated with the anti-oil environmental lobby that has time and again fought to block intelligent exploitation of safer fields, such as ANWR or the coast of California via slant drilling.

So, Mr President, far from running out of places to drill, we have plenty. More than enough to safely supply our oil needs (or more realistically, greatly cushion our dependence on foreign oil) while we work to develop alternative sources of fuel and lubricants that are economically viable.

The Federal government just has to stop barring the door.

Gulf oil slick: mindboggling incompetence

June 8, 2010

When an oil spill occurs in water, one thing you want a lot of is boom: floating barriers that can contain the oil to a relatively restricted area. Since the Deepwater Horizon exploded and began the largest oil spill in US history, gulf-state governors have been begging for boom to protect their coastlines. Louisiana Governor Jindal asked for 5,000,000 feet of “hard” boom in early may. So far, he’s only received 20% of that. Supposedly, there just isn’t enough.

Wrong.

In what has got to be one of the most frustrating, infuriating moments of bureaucratic foot-dragging and incompetence since this whole mess began, a company in Maine has miles of boom available. They can churn out 40,000 feet per day, they’ve contacted federal officials and executives at BP – and no one will buy it from them:

John Lapoint of Packgen in Auburn, Maine, says he’s got plenty of floating oil containment boom and can make lots more on short notice. There’s just one problem: no one will buy it from him.

(…)

Packgen’s main business is not making oil boom. They make specialty packaging materials for shipping and storing environmentally sensitive materials. But when Packgen’s president, John Lapoint, saw the BP oil spill in the news, he understood right away that to have any hope of containing the oil drifting towards the shoreline, lots of floating boom would be necessary.

(…)

Maine, like the rest of the country, is suffering from very high unemployment. But its residents aren’t out of work because they aren’t useful; they’re useful, but out of work because there’s nothing much useful to do. Lapoint was able to immediately add two shifts of competent and motivated workers, and by the fourth day of production was making forty thousand feet of boom a day.

It’s likely they could make even more. But no one was ready to purchase it.

This comes down to a failure of anyone other than Mr. Lapoint, from the President of the United States to BP executives, to take any initiative. Instead they’ve stuck to approved procedures: when the Governor of Louisiana wants to build sand berms to protect his marshes, he has to wait for approval from Washington because of environmental regulations. And when a company stands ready to do its part and work round the clock to supply the equipment we need, no one from the Fed can be moved to do anything, while BP sniffs because the design isn’t approved, yet.

This is the worst of all possible situations: a Federal government that makes everyone wait on it, depend on it – and then won’t act decisively in a situation where it is given the lead role by law.

All while the ecologies and economies of the Gulf states are devastated.

Here we have Americans willing to take the initiative, from the Jindal administration to a small company in Maine, and the statist nitwits in DC are blocking them every step of the way. They should have instead have said “damn the regulations” and bought every foot of boom Packgen had, shipped by military airlift to the Gulf, and then set the company to working 24 hours a day. If the President is so willing to “kick ass,” here is just the situation in which he should put boot to tail. This is disgraceful.

Apparently, there are two clean ups in order: first the Gulf, and then Washington, D.C.  Angry

When you’ve lost the Associated Press…

Wow. Check out the caption to this photo:

Because sending the president of the United States down to help clean up the mess with his bare hands wasn’t enough.

I’m not sure if the AP photographer  or the editor at New York Magazine wrote that, but, considering how deeply into the Cult of Obama both organizations were, it’s impressive.

I think it’s safe to say the marriage between Obama and the press, if not officially over, will soon be in divorce court.

Mad science: here to solve a problem that does not exist

May 30, 2010

They laughed at me in Vienna, the fools!

It seems there’s no lack of weird and wonderful (to put it nicely) ideas to fight the (non-existent) threat of anthropogenic global warming. The latest comes from a meeting of scientists in Monterey, California, at which physicist David Keith suggested spraying the world with sulfuric acid:

None of the scientists in the room so much as blinked when David Keith suggested saving the world with spy planes spraying sulfuric acid.

Keith, a physicist at the University of Calgary in Canada, was facing an audience not likely to be shocked: nearly 200 other researchers, some of whom had their own radical ideas for fighting global warming. His concept was to spray a mist of sulfuric acid high in the stratosphere to form particles called sulfate aerosols, which would act like a sprinkling of tiny sunshades for the overheating Earth.

Keith’s idea may sound outrageous, but it is just one of many proposals for bumping the global thermostat down a couple of degrees by tinkering directly with the planet’s heating and cooling systems.

If that isn’t begging to invoke the law of unintended consequences… I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.  Silly


BP means “Bastard Petroleum”

May 30, 2010

My God, if this story is true, then BP stands revealed as not just incompetent, but as lying sacks of you-know-what, too. From The New York Times:

Documents Show Early Worries About Safety of Rig

Internal documents from BP show that there were serious problems and safety concerns with the Deepwater Horizon rig far earlier than those the company described to Congress last week.

The problems involved the well casing and the blowout preventer, which are considered critical pieces in the chain of events that led to the disaster on the rig.

The documents show that in March, after several weeks of problems on the rig, BP was struggling with a loss of “well control.” And as far back as 11 months ago, it was concerned about the well casing and the blowout preventer.

On June 22, for example, BP engineers expressed concerns that the metal casing the company wanted to use might collapse under high pressure.

“This would certainly be a worst-case scenario,” Mark E. Hafle, a senior drilling engineer at BP, warned in an internal report. “However, I have seen it happen so know it can occur.”

The company went ahead with the casing, but only after getting special permission from BP colleagues because it violated the company’s safety policies and design standards. The internal reports do not explain why the company allowed for an exception. BP documents released last week to The Times revealed that company officials knew the casing was the riskier of two options.

As the article goes on to say, these pukes from BP testified before a panel composed of Coast Guard officers and officials from the Minerals Management Service that they didn’t think BP was “taking risks.” And yet the documents show they knew of serious problems well before the blowout. They told baldfaced lies to the board and may well have lied in their testimony to Congress, too.

This is appalling. Like the mad scientist in an old movie who forges on with his insane project in the face of all the warning signs, these idiots ignored clear signals that they had a serious problem on their hand, and now the Gulf of Mexico and the states bordering it are paying a terrible price for BP’s folly.

Not only should BP be civilly liable for every penny of the damage done, but I hope to God the Department of Justice and the State of Louisiana go after these rat-turds in criminal actions, too.

Another day, another global warming claim goes *poof!*

February 16, 2010

First it was the temperature data and the Dread Hockey Stick of Doom that turned out to be near-total fabrications. Then it was the glaciers that weren’t really melting as fast as claimed, and the rain forests that weren’t receding as much as claimed. And now it’s the increase in the frequency and power of hurricanes that isn’t happening:

Dr. Les Hatton, a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society, today released a global statistical analysis testing six Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) statements against raw data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric (NOAA) Administration to prove there has been no increase in global hurricanes or typhoons, contrary to IPCC claims.

Hatton was inspired to analyse the IPPC hurricane data after the climategate email revelations and found that although the North Atlantic hurricane activity increased significantly, the increase was cancelled out overall by diminished activity in the East Pacific. Thus, the declines balance the increases. His detailed report can be found in this PDF.

  • “When you average the number of storms and their strength, it almost exactly balances.”

I begin to wonder if there’s anything true at all in anything the IPCC has published. The organization’s credibility has been ruined, a self-inflicted death. Time for it to be disestablished.

Oh, and time for Al Gore to surrender his Nobel Peace Prize and his Academy Award.

Global warming strikes again

Is there anything the IPCC hasn’t lied about?

January 27, 2010

Ye gods. The whole edifice of their “settled science” is crumbling like a wet cookie. From James Delingpole:

After Climategate, Pachaurigate and Glaciergate: Amazongate

AGW theory is toast. So’s Dr Rajendra Pachauri. So’s the Stern Review. So’s the credibility of the IPCC. But if you think I’m cheered by this you’re very much mistaken. I’m trying to write a Climategate book but the way things are going by the time I’m finished there won’t be anything left to say: the battle will already have been won and the only people left who still believe in Man Made Global Warming will be the eco-loon equivalents of those wartime Japanese soldiers left abandoned and forgotten on remote Pacific atolls.


Here’s the latest development, courtesy of Dr Richard North – and it’s a cracker. It seems that, not content with having lied to us about shrinking glaciers, increasing hurricanes, and rising sea levels, the IPCC’s latest assessment report also told us a complete load of porkies about the danger posed by climate change to the Amazon rainforest.

Hint: The geniuses of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) claimed we were in danger of losing up to 40% of the Amazon rainforests to global warming. Trouble is, there’s no evidence to back their claims.

At this rate, only carbon-trading con artists and bawling emo-hippies will take this global-warming garbage seriously.

Forget the facts, just believe

January 13, 2010

I’ve noted before that the global warming/climate change mania has taken on aspects of a religion, a near-pagan worship of the planet as the living Gaia. The late Michael Crichton several years ago delivered a famous and highly critical address on that very topic: Environmentalism As Religion.

And these are hard times for the faith, as inconvenient facts get in the way of holy orthodoxy and the foretold signs of a coming Green Apocalypse fail to occur.

So, what is a Believer to do when the priests are shown to be charlatans and the Earth refuses to cooperate, in spite of all the granola eaten and carbon credits bought to prove one’s virtue?

Breathe deeply and heed the words of your Green Patriarch, laid down for all to see in his new book:

Gore’s spiritual argument on climate

Al’s Gore’s much-anticipated sequel to An Inconvenent Truth is published today, with an admission that facts alone will not persuade Americans to act on global warming and that appealing to their spiritual side is the way forward.

In his latest book, Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis, the man who won a Nobel prize in 2007 for his touring slideshow on disappearing polar ice and other consequences of climate change, concludes: “Simply laying out the facts won’t work.”

Instead, Gore tells Newsweek magazine in a pre-publication interview, that he has been adapting his fact-based message – now put out by hundreds of volunteers – to appeal to those who believe there is a moral or religious duty to protect the planet.

(Emphasis added.)

In other words, “Don’t bother me with facts! I’m on a mission from God Gaia!”

So, who are you going to believe? Your lying eyes or The Goracle?

Question not. The science is settled. Amen.

Sarah Barracuda vs. The Governator?

December 16, 2009

Our governor is a famous tough-guy, but I don’t think even the Terminator should want to take on this battle.

It all began when former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post criticizing the rigged science apparently revealed by the Climategate files and recommending that President Obama skip the UN Conference on Climate Change at Copenhagen, at least until questions about the reliability of the basic climate data could be solved. It was a reasonable editorial that strongly recommended caution in the wake of the expanding scandal. For her troubles, she earned an attack by Al Gore himself, but she returned fire.

Now comes the turn of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who I sometimes suspect wishes he were Al Gore. In Copenhagen for the conference and asked about Governor Palin’s editorial, Arnie replied:

The California governor has become an environmental standard bearer for the Republican party, which is split on the merits of curbing emissions. Sarah Palin, John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has attacked cap and trade and questioned any link between man-made emissions and global warming.

“You have to ask: what was she trying to accomplish?” said Mr Schwarzenegger. “Is she really interested in this subject or is she interested in her career and in winning the [Republican] nomination [for president]? You have to take all these things with a grain of salt.”

Sigh. Governors in glass statehouses shouldn’t throw stones. Sarah Palin has a very good record of environmental stewardship, as any fair examination of her time as governor shows. But, I’ll let her speak for herself:

Why is Governor Schwarzenegger pushing for the same sorts of policies in Copenhagen that have helped drive his state into record deficits and unemployment? Perhaps he will recall that I live in our nation’s only Arctic state and that I was among the first governors to create a sub-cabinet to deal specifically with climate change. While I and all Alaskans witness the impacts of changes in weather patterns firsthand, I have repeatedly said that we can’t primarily blame man’s activities for those changes. And while I did look for practical responses to those changes, what I didn’t do was hamstring Alaska’s job creators with burdensome regulations so that I could act “greener than thou” when talking to reporters.

One shot, one RINO bagged.

She’s right to call attention to Schwarzenegger’s record, because the policies he has championed in the name of “science” have only lead to deeper debt and faster job loss in California, all to little or no real benefit. For example, he supported and signed the draconian AB 32, a statewide “greenhouse gas” bill similar to the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill proposed in Congress. It will do nothing to solve the anthropogenic global warming problem (which doesn’t exist, anyway), but its regulatory provisions are already driving jobs out of the state in the midst of a deep recession.  And Arnie’s support for Proposition 71 in 2004 indebted the state for three billion dollars to support fetal stem-cell research – yet more junk science. (Unlike fetal stem cells, adult stem cells show real promise.)

The trouble with our governor is that, to put it simply if bluntly, he falls too easily to the temptation to do what’s currently popular in order to maintain his own popularity, rather than what’s right, even if it makes a large segment of the California public angry. Hence he has done nothing substantive to reduce spending in this state even while revenues crash, he’s agreed to economy-hobbling measures because environmentalism is a “Mom and apple pie” issue in California, and he’s agreed to take on more debt even while the state already suffers under a crushing debt burden. And now he’s chasing (Green) popular appeal in Copenhagen, which includes ritual denunciation of those who dare to be skeptical, such as Sarah Palin.

Governor, you may have been the Terminator, but she is Sarah Palin Conner. Don’t even think about it.  Not talking

How many feet can Al Gore stick in his big mouth?

December 16, 2009

The Goracle, speaking at the  UN Copenhagen Climate Change Farce Conference:

And he urged the world to complete a global deal by July, assuming the Copenhagen summit ends this week with a political agreement by all the countries.

Describing a “runaway melt” of the Earth’s ice, rising tree mortality and prospects of severe water scarcities, Gore told a UN audience: “In the face of effects like these, clear evidence that only reckless fools would ignore, I feel a sense of frustration” at the lack of agreement so far.

“Rising tree mortality?” Really? Should I go hug my favorite oak before it dies from drought, gets blown over by gale-force storms created by Man’s folly, and then floats away on the rising seas?

Umm… No. Nope. Not at all.

Al is ignoring inconvenient facts again:

Satellite data for the real world (not the one Mr. Gore lives in) can help give us an idea.

Global


Globally net primary productivity (NPP) has increased. As the IPCC’s WG II report (p. 106) says:

Satellite-derived estimates of global net primary production from satellite data of vegetation indexes indicate a 6% increase from 1982 to 1999, with large increases in tropical ecosystems (Nemani et al., 2003) [Figure 1]. The study by Zhou et al. (2003), also using satellite data, confirm that the Northern Hemisphere vegetation activity has increased in magnitude by 12% in Eurasia and by 8% in NorthAmerica from 1981 to 1999

Read the rest to see how vegetation is actually expanding worldwide.  And, contra the EPA, the trees seem quite happy with rising CO2 levels.

Tell me again why anyone takes bombastic fraud seriously?

Sarah Palin on energy independence

October 16, 2009

The former Alaska governor writes in National Review: Drill

Given that we’re spending billions of stimulus dollars to rebuild our highways, it makes sense to think about what we’ll be driving on them. For years to come, most of what we drive will be powered, at least in part, by diesel fuel or gasoline. To fuel that driving, we need access to oil. The less use we make of our own reserves, the more we will have to import, which leads to a number of harmful consequences. That means we need to drill here and drill now.

We rely on petroleum for much more than just powering our vehicles: It is essential in everything from jet fuel to petrochemicals, plastics to fertilizers, pesticides to pharmaceuticals. Ac­cord­ing to the Energy Information Ad­min­is­tra­tion, our total domestic petroleum consumption last year was 19.5 million barrels per day (bpd). Motor gasoline and diesel fuel accounted for less than 13 million bpd of that. Meanwhile, we produced only 4.95 million bpd of domestic crude. In other words, even if we ran all our vehicles on something else (which won’t happen anytime soon), we would still have to depend on imported oil. And we’ll continue that dependence until we develop our own oil resources to their fullest extent.

Those who oppose domestic drilling are motivated primarily by environmental considerations, but many of the countries we’re forced to import from have few if any environmental-protection laws, and those that do exist often go unenforced. In effect, American environmentalists are preventing responsible development here at home while supporting irresponsible development overseas.

That last point is something a lot of people don’t understand: in order to make our selves feel morally pure by not drilling for our own oil and gas, we contribute to the severe environmental damage caused when other, less stringent countries drill for theirs to sell to us. It’s like saying you don’t drink, then sending the butler out to the liquor store.

Palin goes on to provide examples of how Alaska combined energy development with responsible stewardship of the environment, and at the end takes a playful shot at the Obama administration.

I hope to see much more of those in 2012.  Cowboy
