The 12 Days of Global Warming

M4GW

As the rest of the world has to flee the onslaught of Mariah Carey. We have this classic from Minnesotans for Global Warming.

A 14 year old classic.

Along with all the failed projections over the decades, people also forget the original PR pieces from Hansen’s testimony to Al’s nonsense that launched the scare.
Thanks for the reminder!

My favorite was “I’m a Denier”, which I can no longer locate.

Google M4GW, and you’ll get all their videos. Here’s “I’m a Denier”:

Another classic is “Frozen Wasteland”:

Duke worked out a deal with the NC Legislature, which, shamefully, got broad, bipartisan support:

Duke will retire (or convert to natural gas) their coal power plants, and build scads of new “renewable” wind and solar.

Their customers pay for it all. Duke gets to charge regulated rates, a percentage above their costs, so the higher their costs, the more money they make.

And, as a bonus, their customers get predictable “emergency rotating outages” on chilly, windless, winter nights.

The goal of a corporation is to make a profit. The transition into Net Zero has offered corporations serving the power markets a profit-making opportunity through a process of asset churn.

Under Net Zero, the unit price of electricity will rise sharply while the production of electricity will fall.

If a savvy approach to managing the transition away from coal and gas into wind and solar is being applied, corporations like Duke Energy could very well be making more profit under Net Zero while producing less electricity.

And so if you are the CEO of one of these corporations, why wouldn’t you and your management team get on board with Net Zero? Why wouldn’t you ignore what your engineering staff is telling you about the cost and reliability issues with Net Zero?

If public policy decision makers don’t care about the many issues with Net Zero, and if the regulators don’t care, and if the politicians don’t care — then why should you as a CEO care?

Supporting Net Zero may not work out for your corporation in the very long term, but it certainly might in the short term and in the mid-term while you and your immediate successors are the CEOs.

“Energy” monopolies get a guaranteed % profit from “energy” sales. The more the “energy” costs, the more DOLLARS they make serving the same number of customers.

SO, of course they will go along with providing LESS “energy” per unit in operation, and have MORE generating capacity than required, i.e. unreliable generating capacity, as long as the government regulations and regulators “make” them do that.

Old story, back in the 60s my dad would always get mad when a VEPCO (Virginia Electric and Power Company) add would come on the TV. You see VEPCO was a monopoly, and did not need to advertise since they were the only game in town, BUT since the regulators allowed the advertisements AND guaranteed a fixed % of profit on the GROSS, our bills included the advertisement expenses. It seems that the ad company was owned by a family related to the government “regulators”.

Nice version of a classic Christmas song indeed! It would be better if there weren’t so many believing all this.

Remember this from 1968

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAqhKKvlZmM

The ice caps are melting
Oh, ho, ho ho
All the world is drowning
Ho, ho ho, ho ho
The ice caps are melting
The tide is rushing in
All the world is drowning
To wash away the sin

Are those kids who witnessed this man, today’s disturbed climate zealots ?

“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!” Clement Clarke Moore

“God Bless Us, Every One!” Charles Dickens during the Little Ice Age.

And that about sums it up. 🙂

Current temp in Northern Minnesota 0 F. (“Feels like -12”) Heading for a low tonight of -18 F.

Had the great joy of spending a year in Rochester one week. During Christmas, too. It was an experience I do not intend to repeat.

Sounds like the band has a few new members.

Whatever happened to, Global Warming? With much of the northern hemisphere beer based in cold temperatures and the snow I think we could all welcome a little bit of global warming right now.

This “Cyclone Bomb” is due to global warming. It seems every winter now we have some kind of “bomb” or “super cyclone”. Next year we’ll have a “nuclear cyclone” that will give us the worst cold weather in decades “ever”.

Sometimes I think we should start speaking a new language. Words don’t mean what they used to.

By the way, thanks for the music! I was really impressed by “I’m a Denier”. I wish I’d been able to play that in my office before I retired.
