The Retreat of the Gangotri Glacier

It was never CO2… But it might not be the sun either 🤔

If you’ve come to recognise that the future projections of modern climate science are alarmist pseudo-science then it should come as no surprise that the historical hindcasts conjured up by climate science are also pitiful pseudo-science.

Jordan Peterson on Climate Change

The question/statement by the audience member is as asinine and entitled as they come, which is why the response is all the more delicious.

A Cambridge Union questioner asks Jordan Peterson whether humanity might finally discover its “global map of meaning” by uniting to combat Climate Change.

20:29
Drought, flooding and ocean acidification.
Unanticipated for 65 million years.
All result from climate change according to over 700 of your fellow scientists.

So I was wondering whether you thought climate change could be an issue that could unite us all – on left and right – moving us beyond debates about c16 to discussions at the UN Katowice next month where perhaps humanity might finally discover its global map of meaning?

Jordan Peterson provides a very succinct answer.

No.

And a wonderfully educational explanation that stuns the audience into silence 🙂

Enjoy!

Drilling to begin at UK’s first geothermal power plant

Keep it in the ground 😁

It seems unlikely that hordes of angry protesters would rush to this project to complain about any alleged dangers of deep drilling – but you never know.

Drilling will start this week at what could become the UK’s first deep geothermal electricity plant in Cornwall, reports ITV News.

Two wells will be drilled through granite rock near St Day, the deepest of which will reach 4.5 kilometres.

Geothermal Engineering Ltd says the aim of the project is to demonstrate the potential of geothermal technology to produce electricity and renewable heat in the UK.

Gravesend-Broadness weather station closes

Good riddance.

Tallbloke's Talkshop


No-one is quite sure why this weather station – which the late Tim Channon featured several times here at the Talkshop – so often came top of UK temperature lists, apart from being close to London. But KentLive News offered this believe-it-or-not clue: ‘The soil at Broadness is also said to heat up rather quickly under direct sunlight, which is part of the reason why it records some record breaking temperatures.’ Having only opened in 1995, its short-lived fame – or was it notoriety? – will now have to pass to somewhere else.
H/T PM

A weather station that has recorded some of the hottest temperatures in the UK is no more, reports KentOnline.

It’s been revealed a weather station renowned for recording some of the UK’s hottest temperatures has closed.

The Met Office has decided to shut the Gravesend-Broadness weather station on the Swanscombe peninsula after “significant changes…

Watch “Professor Valentina Zharkova: The Solar Magnet Field and the Terrestrial Climate”

Professor Zharkova predicts global cooling by 2030. Cycle 25 looks similar to current Cycle 24, but Cycle 26 shows a sharp drop. I expect this to be far nearer the mark than the IPCC thermogeddon by 2030. Look out for Piers Corbyn and Roger Tattersall (Tallbloke) in the Q & A at the end. https://YouTube.com/watch?v=M_yqIj38UmY

Wind farms are the ‘new apex predators’: Blades kill off 75% of buzzards, hawks and kites that live nearby, study shows

Prayer wheels demand sacrifice

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

From the Mail:

Wind turbines are the world’s new ‘apex predators’, wiping out buzzards, hawks and other carnivorous birds at the top of the food chain, say scientists.

A study of wind farms in India found that predatory bird numbers drop by three quarters in areas around the turbines.

This is having a ‘ripple effect’ across the food chain, with small mammals and reptiles adjusting their behaviour as their natural predators disappear from the skies.

Birds and bats were assumed to be most vulnerable to the rise of the landscape-blotting machines.

But their impact is reverberating across species, experts warned, upsetting nature’s delicate balance.

I doubt whether we’ll hear this from the RSPB.
