Germany’s Green Energy Flops While Global Fossil Fuels Boom…

Germany, not so long ago at the politically correct centre of the world, championing the cause of free immigration and the move to clean, green, sustainable energy (two policies guaranteed to leadt to the desruction of European civilisation, is suffering a crisis of arrogance as German society descends into chaos due to the actions lawless elements among the million or so uneducated, unskilled, uncivilised immigrants waved through border posts without any for of vetting,  while the green dream of meeting all the nations energy needs with the medieval technology that is the basis of windmill design appears to be flat on its back with its legs in the air.

German energy minister Minister Peter Altmaier,  has admitted for the first time the nation will fall some way short of its 2020 climate targets and that voters have completely lost faith in the renewable energy project which in Germany costs taxpayers around €25 billion per year in subsidies because despite accurate but misleading claims that energy from wind ans sunshine are free, collecting it and transforming it into usable forms is not.

EurActiv reports:

Voters across Europe have lost faith in politics partly because of “unachievable targets” on renewable energy, said German Energy Minister Peter Altmaier, who rejected calls from a group of other EU countries to boost the share of renewables to 33-35% of the bloc’s energy mix by 2030. […]

“Germany supports responsible but achievable targets,” Altmaier said from the outset, underlining Berlin’s efforts to raise the share of renewables to 15% of the country’s overall energy mix.

But he said those efforts also carried a cost for the German taxpayer, which he put at €25 billion per year. “And if we are setting targets that are definitely above 30%, that means that within a decade, our share has to be more than doubled – clearly more than doubled,” Altmaier pointed out.

Meanwhile, France24 reports:

Rather than cutting emissions of the greenhouse gas by 40 percent compared with 1990 levels, Europe’s largest economy will manage reductions of just 32 percent, said the annual climate report for 2017 signed off by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet.

The shortfall of eight percentage points translates into around 100 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) pumped into the air annually.

With even that reduced target looking increasingly unrealistic, these are shocking admissions from the country which has probably done more than any other to advocate for “clean energy”. Germany had set itself the ambitious target of becoming completely independent of fossil fuels in a scheme known as Energiewende.

Last year, the German Federal Department of Economics and Energy published a brochure claiming Energiewende had been a huge success story. But this was a lie according to this German research document, published in English under the name Compendium for a Sensible Energy Policy.

It says:

The Energiewende has the goal of making Germany independent of fossil fuels in the long term. Coal, oil and gas were to be phased out, allowing drastic reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. However, these goals have not even begun to be achieved.

The Energiewende was only driven forward in the electricity sector, which, accounts for only one-fifth of energy consumption. There were hardly any successes in the heating/cooling and transport sectors. And so carbon dioxide emissions in Germany have been rising since 2009, even though well over a hundred billion euros have been spent on the expansion of solar and wind energy over the same period.

The financial obligations undertaken in the process will continue to burden taxpayers for another two decades and will end up costing German consumers a total sum of around 550 billion euros. Despite this enormous effort, security of supply is increasingly under threat.

At the same time, people and the biosphere are suffering; wildlife protection has become subordinated to climate mitigation, even though the possibility of achieving the goals of reducing carbon dioxide emissions is becoming increasingly distant and the measures for the energy transition seem to become more and more questionable from a constitutional point of view.

This news is the latest in a series of public relations disasters for the renewables industry. It follows a crash in the price of solar energy (after China decided to cut subsidies) and the failure of Britain’s wind turbines to produce energy for over a week.

Meanwhile, fossil fuels – especially the most hated one of all, coal – are experiencing an unlikely boom.

According to the Financial Times:

Thermal coal, tagged the least-loved major commodity by analysts, is defying sceptics, with prices rising to the highest level since 2012 thanks to strong Asian demand.

High-grade Australian thermal coal, the benchmark for the vast Asia market, was quoted at $112.60 a tonne on Monday by Argus Media.

The fuel, which is burnt in power stations to generate electricity, has now jumped 130 per cent from its 2016 lows, boosting the profits of big producers such as Glencore and Peabody. The price of South African thermal coal has also hit a six-year high as consumers in Asia scramble for supplies.

While thermal coal is being phased out in Europe on environmental grounds, it still accounts for about 40 per cent of energy consumption in emerging markets, especially Asia.

Demand from India, Japan and South Korea has been robust in the first five months of the year, while an early summer heatwave has lifted imports into China despite Beijing’s efforts to keep a lid on domestic coal prices.

So let’s just get this straight; thanks to the efforts of the science wankers who could not work out that when the wind does not blow wind turbines cannot generate and when the sun does not shine (on average 12 hours a day even in the sunniest regions of the globe,) solar panels cannot collect energy and feed it into the grid, we have spent $£€trillions on switching to clean, green, sustainable electricity only to find the science wankers and politicians
(all politicians are wankers) have not yet learned what only with a grain of common sense knew from the outset.

And as a result of this outbreak of wankerism in the corridors of power and the halls of academia, we are now shipping coal halfway round the world from Australia to keep the lights lit, the heaters heating, the cookers cooking and the wheels of industry turning in western Europe.

War and Politics Behind Mass Displacement in Africa, Not Climate Change – UCL
A report from a new study conducted by University College London’s may cause a stir in the climate scaremongering industry. The report challenges the academic establishment’s standard narrative of mass displacement in Africa being principally responsible for the creation of refugees in Africa and casts doubt on a number of other assumptions about global problems.

Hurricane Harvey Climate Catastrophe Man Made?As we reported last week the Hurricane Harvey disaster which has hit the U.S. states of Texas and Louisiana has shown characteristics never before observed in any hurricane or tropical storm since records began. Meteorological depressions (because that is what hurricanes, typhoons and other intense storms are,) move and once over land quickly weaken as air pressures become normalised. Harvey has stayed in the same area, dumping massive amounts of rain on the heavily populated coastal strip and causing $$$billionsworth of damage through flooding and high winds.

“We own the automobile companies,” Harkin said earlier this week. “Why not? I think that will be an easy one.”

Green Energy Scam Exposed Again

9 June, 2018

This has been a terrible week for the renewable energy business.

Across the world solar energy share prices have crashed. This was caused by a sudden and unexpected decision by China, the world’s biggest solar manufacturer and user, to rein in subsidies.

According to Caixin Global:

China has abruptly put the brakes on solar power subsidies, seeking to stem overcapacity in a sector that has benefited for years from government incentives.

The move caught many in the industry off guard.

The government won’t grant subsidies to any new ordinary solar projects this year. For those that are being built, the incentives will be cut by 0.05 yuan (0.8 U.S. cents) per kilowatt-hour (kWh).

Solar stocks have fallen across the board by double digits. It’s uncertain when they will recover.

It hasn’t been a good week for wind energy either. In Britain, the industry has become a national joke because for seven days its wind turbines stood still and produced no electricity. Great news for all the birds and bats they would otherwise have sliced and diced; no problem for the renewables industry troughers who still get their rich subsidies whether the wind blows or not. But definitely unfortunate PR for an industry which would prefer everyone not to notice one of wind energy’s main problems: it’s intermittent – which means that a) it’s not always there when you need it and so b) it requires constant back up from more reliable fossil fuel on standby.

We shouldn’t laugh, except actually we must. Otherwise guys like this will win the day.

 Nuclear power – including existing plants – needs to be remunerated for the zero-carbon power it produces. That must be kept separate from pork-barrel subsidies to dying coal plants. And nuclear lobbyists, please understand: you need to make friends with renewables.

Liebreich – founder of Bloomberg New Energy Finance – has done extremely well out of the climate change scare industry. That’s why he can afford to jet freely around the world (not first class, he insists in a subsequent tweet: just economy to Dublin to catch Gorillaz on Skype – as you do…)

So he is revealed as virtue-signalling hypocrite, happy to lecture the rest of us about the need to sit shivering in our cold, dark houses and go everywhere by bike, while his environmental purity does not dissuade him from hopping on a plane from London to Dulin (“not first class,” he tells us, as if it makes a difference to the fuel burned. Simultaneously with his stacking up the air miles and extending his carbon footprint like an Al Gore-style boss he is railing about plastic pollution, the fashionable environmentalist cause of the week, by complaining about artificial plants in the airport departure lounge.

The global warming industry – the Climate Industrial Complex as some are starting to call it – has been estimated as being worth an annual $1.5 trillion, but that was three years ago and like john Steinbeck’s monster and all others of the same genus, it has to grow or else it dies.

Like a lot of renewables advocates, Liebreich has grown rich on taxpayers money from his support for environment scams, making more money than had he been a skeptical scientist carrying out independent research based on real world evidence and not results from mathematical models fed ‘adjusted data,’  or a journalist writing about what a huge con the global warming industry is.

Liebreich gives the game away in a piece published recently about the way forward for global energy industry. He addresses the bogus  dilemma that he claims oil companies face: do they abandon fossil fuel early and move into renewables; or do they extract the last remaining value they can?

This is, of course, the purest green propaganda masquerading as dispassionate business advice. A business advice it is pure bollocks. Most Big Oil company CEOs now, wearing their best shit – eating grins, pay lip service to the Church of Scienceology dogma of wind and mirrors and apologise for the pure evil of their sticky black gold. Behind the masks of course they are happily aware of the reality that renewables still provide a tiny percentage of global energy consumption and that even by 2040 – if you believe BP’s  highly suspect projections, : fossil fuels are still going to provide well over half global energy consumption.

Here is the key passage in which Liebreich gives the game away, admitting that sustainables do not provide a realistic alternative to fossil fuels :

There is no inherent dishonor or immorality in pursuing a Sunset Ride. Even the most ardent climate activist is going to be a user of fossil fuels and petrochemical products for many more decades, and no one with integrity can demonize products whose demand they themselves drive. Dishonor and immorality lie only in attempts to obfuscate or delay the global transition to clean energy and transport, either through lobbying and misinformation or through a failure to strive for the highest standards within one’s own operations. Oil and gas companies need to lead on eliminating fugitive emissions and flaring, and to act with transparency and honor around the world.

In that “dishonour and immorality” bit lies the dirty big secret of the renewables industry which must be protected at all costs by elitist Omerta. Energy from wind and solar power are not reliable, sometimes the wind does not blow sufficiently strongly (or sufficently steadily – wind turbines can’t handle sudden gusts,) and there are cloudy and rainy days even in southern Spain or south California which mean that while geenies in the UK are crowing about ONE DAY in the summer of 2017 when more of our energy “came from green sources” they carefully omit to mention that most of the energy from coal, gas and oil fuelled plants was going down to earth because such equipment cannot be shut down or brought back to optimum speed at the flick of a switch. The same amount of carbon dioxide was being emitted, but the fuel burned was simply wasted.

Electricity cuts and power crisis predicted for Britain’s New Year Holiday

20 December, 2016

Thanks to successive governments (Labour from 1997 to 2010 and Conservative Lib – Dem from 2010 to 2015) their gullibility in falling victim to every confidence trickster who backed up an energy subsidy scam by saying, “I’m a scientist.” and their committment to supposedly sustainable but in reality intermittent energy sources for electricity,   The National Grid is failing to meet demand and “emergency power deals have become the norm,” according to a new report by a cross-party parliamentary group chaired by Grant Shapps.

Coal power station closures and the building of renewable energy plants will leave the country struggling to generate the required power supplies to feed British infrastructure and homes.

The British Infrastructure Group (BIG) believes the government’s attempt to meet climate change targets set by the EU and United Nations led to a cut back in capacity margins and extravagant price increases. The “interventionist energy policy,” Shapps believes, has left electricity supplies “dangerously small.” Shapps carefully omits to mention that the government’s only contingency plan for providing the power needed to meet peaks of demand (a sudden cold snap for example) is to spark up the thousands of diesel generators the earth loving politicians have concealed in goods containers on compounds sited around the country. Yes you read that right, diesel generators, the billions of pounds spent on wind and solar generation schemes and the billions of pounds spent on subsidising the farmers and landowners whose land the ‘sustainable’ power generators stand on have left us dependent on the dirtiest and most inefficient method of generating power to meet peak winter demand.

The report found that in recent winters the nation’s spare electricity pool went from 17 percent in 2011-12 to just one percent this year. To restore the stock, household bills would have to increase by as much as £30 a year until 2020. Government estimates predict price increases of around half of that.

“While nobody questions the noble intentions behind these ‘green power’ policies, it is clear that the unshakeable confidence of the community who swore ‘the science is settled’ was sadly misplaced and policies  designed to reduce Britain’s carbon dioxide emissions were not only wrong headed in a world that has stubbornly refused to get any warmer for almost twenty years (accoring to the ‘settled science’ we should have been frying eggs on the concrete in mid December here in northern England by now, not wondering how we are going to kep warm through the winter) but have had the unintended effect of hollowing out the reliability of the electricity generating sector,” the former co-chair of the Conservative Party said.

So to avoid major power cuts over Christmas 2017, Shapps added, the government should “work to make it profitable for private companies to invest and innovate in our electricity markets once again.”

Last year, National Grid paid nearly £40 million ($49.7 million) for emergency power. This winter, the group was given the go-ahead by the government to shell out an estimated £122.4 million. These costs are later spread out across the network and picked up by consumers in the form of growing bills.

The Lincolnshire Poetcher And Her Wind Farm Message

Boggart Blog has been telling you for years that wind farms are a waste of space (more of our climate change posts). Wind turbines are so finnicky about the wind speed being in the right range and the air temperature being not too hot and not too cold but just right that they only generate viable amounts of electricity for twenty five percent of the time (wind turbine truth) and then neglegible quantities reach the grid. One would be forgiven for thinking the government’s green energy policy was about making wind farm operators rich rather than generating cheap, clean, sustainable power.

But logic does not sway the Warmageddonists, after all they have statistics and graphs always trump reality.

So maybe Lincolnshire poet Jane Air has taken the right approach in appealing to our emotions and aesthetic sensibilities in her poem

Lincolnshire Wind Farms

Here’s a little taste:

A meadow
Of metal petals
All planted in a row
Are flowers in the wind
Petal propellers spinned

Metal petals, how can you not love that image?

I don’t know how Jane makes her living, wouldn’t it be fun if she’s a teacher, they we could call her The Lincolnshire Poetcher.

National Wind Day

The insane weather continues. With all but the highest upland areas now under more that fifty feet of water and more flooding on the way according to our Prime Minister, while the assorted incompetents, dickheads and arseholes who should be sorting this out run round like headless chickens as they try to escape the flood of criticism, wetsuits have become the de rigeur clothing for fashionable flood victims.

flood fashion
Flood bound fashionistas promenade in their designer wetsuits

It is not just the flood waters that are pissing people off of course, the enture nation has been battered by wind. And as we all know, wind and wetsuits are not a good combination.

Comical Ali Now Working For The New World Order

Remember Comical Ali, the Iraqi Minister of Information under Saddam Hussein whose wild statements about the great victories being won by the Iraqi armed forces as they repelled the invading infidels of the FUKUS axis?

A typical statement from him would go something like “Close to Baghdad airport the Iraqi Republican Guards, armed with catapults, pea shooters and long poles with nails through the end have repelled an attack by enemy tanks. hundreds of American and British tanks have been destroyed and their soldiers are in retreat. I have seen this with my own eyes.”

Among his other gems were:

“There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!”

“They’re not even within 100 miles of Baghdad. They hold no place in Iraq.”

“We have destroyed 2 tanks, fighter planes, 2 helicopters and their shovels. We have driven them back.”

Yeah, you remember him now.

Well he’s back and working as a propaganda officer for The New World Order. The NWO (or Illuminati if you like) having created an energy crisis by selling the stupid politicians and their even stupider scientific advisers the notion that wind turbines can generate electricity when the wind does not blow and that solar panels will work at night, are now trying to shaft us with a new generation of nuclear power stations that will generate all the electricity we need at twice the current cost.

Now don’t get me wrong, I have always said we need nuclear power. Trouble is, just when the NWO bankers though they had done enough to jack up the price so much we would all be enslaved by the debt we accumulated by keeping warm, Fukushima came along and reminded us that while nuclear power is carbon dioxide free it is far from clean and carries risks on a different scale to those posed by conventional power plants.

Enter the New World Order’s Ministry of Truth with a CNN broadcast, Pandora’s Promise so full of outrageous falsehoods that it can only have been scripted by Comical Ali.

Among the more level headed statements of misinformation were:

“Nuclear power is safe I tell you. There have been no birth defects resulting from the Chernobyl disaster.”

“Nobody has ever been killed as a result of nuclear energy.”

“Solar power is many times more dangerous than nuclear power.”

“No one living in the exclusion zone near Chernobyl has ever died of cancer or any other diseases because of the radiation.”

“Nuclear energy is the safe solution to global warming.”

With CNN budgets to play with, Comical Ali (for it surely must be him) has honed his presentation techniques, the broadcast was enhanced with great camera work, brilliant graphics and some stunning special effects. The outrageous lies in Pandora’s Promise were so absurd as to be humorous. But this is no laughing matter. Fukushima is the worst fuck up in the history of electricity generation and has made the myth of Japanese technical excellence rook lidicurous.

We still need nuclear power as a stop – gap, for the past hundred years while we have squandered resources in pursuit of corporate profit, the technologies proposed by Niccola Tesla for grabbing electricity from a free, inexhaustible supply have been kept out of sight. Now there is renewed interest in those ideas but it will take decades to develop them to give a realistic alternative to fossil fuel.

Might as well laugh now before it starts hurting my pocket.

Oh this is a laugh, oh stop it, my sides are hurting.

You remember all those heated debates with scientists who said windmills would provide enogh power to keep the nation running when the coal and nike power stations shut down?

We, the intelligent people, said “but what about when the wind does not blow, what do we do for power then? We’ll have to keep the old coal and nuke stations running, polluting and sending power down to earth (with fuck knows what consequences)

“You can’t say that, you don’t understand science coz you’re not a scientist, nyh nyh na nyh nyh, screamed the science heads.

Well although we hate to say “We told you so,” (as our readers are aware,) we learned today that the scientists Plan B was even crappier than keping the old power plants running:

“Thousands of dirty diesel generators are being secretly prepared all over Britain to provide emergency back-up to prevent the National Grid collapsing when wind power fails.

And under the hugely costly scheme, the National Grid is set to pay up to 12 times the normal wholesale market rate for the electricity they generate.

One of the main beneficiaries of the stopgap plan is the Government itself, which stands to make hundreds of millions of pounds by leasing out the capacity of the generators in public-sector property including NHS hospitals, prisons, military bases, police and fire headquarters, schools and council offices.

But the losers will be consumers who can expect yet further hikes in their electricity bills in the name of ‘combating climate change’.

The scheme is expected to cost £1 billion a year by 2015, adding five per cent to energy bills.

This scheme is a direct consequence of the renewable energy policy adopted by the Coalition but first developed by Tony Blair in response to EU renewables directives to reduce Britain’s carbon emissions by 20 per cent by 2020.”

Diesel generators, that’s a huge step forward. Just shows science tits are always ahead of the game, always at the cutting edge. NOT! Unless of course it’s the cutting edge of a flint hand axe.

Oi scientists, this is even more insane than your original insane idea, admit you weere wrong and we need loads of new nukes FFS. And then fuck off and learn how to flip burgers for a living.
