  • ClimatePonziLie reply Solar energy and wind to Combat Fake Climate Change. I will try to explain the problem with wind generation with a analogy. A farmer has 100 cows that each require 1 gallon of water every day. The farmer decides a windmill can pump the water. He installs a Windmill that can pump 100 Gallons of water. The next day there isn't any wind. The Farmer decides that he can fix the problem by installing another windmill, Now he will have one to pump the water and the other to charge some batteries for when there is no wind. This worked until the wind stopped for 2 days, After the first day without wind the power in the batteries was used up. So he decided that he needed to install a Third Windmill to store more energy and he would also have to increase his battery storage capacity. Finally he looked at his bills and realized he would have been better off just buying a gas powered pump. Even after installing a Third Windmill he still doesn't have energy reliability. Wind and Solar can't provid...moree a guaranteed energy supply, This fact makes solar and wind a redundancy of the reliably of coal as our primary energy source. Every time these alternative sources fail we then need to draw form the secure power source, which is this is disruptive to planning and costing out a reliable energy system. These intermittent energy sources actually don't provide reliability, and they should pay a penalty to that provider that is in the background to take on their lack of production to offset his expenders for their causing the system to became more erratic in it's energy out put. This is the problem with wind it is redundant of the secure source of energy as you can't predict when there will and won't be power.
  • ClimatePonziLie reply Commercial Wind Turbines. The costs for a utility scale wind turbine range from about $1.3 million to $2.2 million per MW of nameplate capacity installed. Most of the commercial-scale turbines installed today are 2 MW in size and cost roughly $3-$4 million installed. MW stands for Mega Watt. 2,000,000 Watts. Sounds impressive. Your Microwave requires 1500 Watts. 2,000,000 divided by 1500 equal 1333 Microwave ovens. Does that sound like it can power 1333 homes. Well only if you don't run your Washing machine, Dryer or your Refrigerator, A/C, Stove. all at once. 2,000,000 /(1500 x 6)= 220 home and I havent allowed for lights, TV, etc. the wind power doesn't look impressive. Wind is a unreliability because you can't control when their providing power or sitting idle so you must have (require) a secure power source for when the wind stops. This fact means they wind actually increase the cost of the entire electrical system for everyone. In reality they are useless but they look impressive ...moreto the uninformed.
  • ClimatePonziLie reply The earth temperatures were several degrees warmer in the Medieval period. They weren't fighting to get food and still have energy to build the grand cathedrals of Europe. There was plenty of food because the climate permitted them extra food production. Many of the Roman sea ports are still in the same locations. So the ocean didn't displace them from the evidence. Imperial Rome's Great Ancient Seaport City, Both WW1 and WW2 were before the big industrial revolution and the world was in a cold period and the Global CO2 was at an all time low. Below 150 ppm, plant-life dies off on a massive scale - See more at: http://notrickszone.com/2013/05/17/atmospheric-co2-concentrations-at-400-ppm-are-still-dangerously-low-for-life-on-earth/#sthash.apyxCIsM.dpuf Just 30 less ppm of CO2 and the Earth would have been dead. Yes that is the cutoff point around 280 ppm of CO2 and plants die. The Middle Ages or Medieval Period lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. The Dust Bowl of the 1930s, someti...moremes referred to as the "Dirty Thirties” lasted about a decade. They didn't have significant accumulations of rain and the earth was much cooler.
