'The technology to store solar energy on a gigawatt (billion watts of power) scale does not yet exist...to imagine that it does exist is to indulge in science fiction...wind & solar power do not work. Wind power never will. Solar power may 50 or a 100 years from now...to dream that hydroelectric power, biomass, or thermal power can make the American people energy-independent is worse than science fiction; it is a fairy tale for babies'
'To slow down global warming, we'll either have to put the brakes on economic growth or transform the way the world's economies work. That's the implication of an innovative U. of Michigan.

'People are claiming there are more disasters now. That's crazy. The weather was terrible in the past, back when CO2 was below 350ppm' - 'Climate was never safe. You had horrific fires, droughts, floods, heat waves -- it hasn't gotten any worse with the CO2 increase'
Climate TRACE utilizes satellite data, machine learning and artificial intelligence to determine greenhouse gas emissions globally. It aims usher in an era of "radical transparency" and a more enforceable climate agreement by giving nonprofits, governments and the UN actionable intelligence to track and crack down on polluters.
East Antarctica, which covers two thirds of the South Pole, has cooled a whopping 2.8°C over the past 4 decades; West Antarctica approximately 1.6″C. ..only tiny Antarctic Peninsula saw statistically insignificant warming.
Last week, media outlets across the globe claimed that there has been rain for the first time at the Greenland summit. “Rain fell at the normally snowy summit of Greenland for the first time on record,” read CNN’s headlines. Others went a step further and declared it a sign of climate doomsday. “Rain On Greenland Ice Sheet, Possibly A First, Signals Climate Change Risk,” read another headline. Unfortunately, for the mainstream media, climate history nearly always comes back to haunt their claims of unprecedented events. Records reveal that this is not the first rainfall in Greenland, and certainly not the first on the Greenland summit peak, which stands at around 10,000 feet.
