The Bolt Report

March 16, 2017

By Paul Homewood




The admirable Andrew Bolt has the latest on South Australia’s energy crisis.

Well worth watching for 5 minutes:

    Why don’t we have someone like this, say on the BBC or Sky, prepared calmly to describe green lunacy such as Drax or that eco-loon primary school?
    Oh, I forgot, the BBC and Sky wouldn’t allow such debate.

      Don’t forget Channel 4 as well.

      The Bolt Report is my regular 7pm viewing instead of the “normal” nightly news. And each morning (here in Australia) I check out the latest Paul Homewood blog posting. Both Andrew and Paul are loud voices of reason in an otherwise crazy world. Thanks!

      The Sky News website was once quite active with many posts pointing out the obvious but shortly after the Brexit vote they removed commenting perhaps because posts frequently simply challenged their reporting often with data to make the point.

    This should be mandatory viewing for all politicians.

    IPCC pseudoscience is based on two basic mistakes.

    1. Hansen missed a key bit of aerosol optical physics in 1969; the sign of the 2nd AIE is reversed. This explains end of ice age Milankovitch amplification and warming in the 1980s and 1990s from Asian industrialisation producing a spike in aerosols.

    2. Planck/Bose/Einstein’s radiative physics assumes a vacuum and applied to our atmosphere creates 40% extra radiative energy than reality. This is offset by negative heat flow, which cannot exist. In reality there is zero IR energy transport at the surface for partially or fully self-absorbed GHG bands, with “the excess” IR energy heading to Space from the upper atmosphere.

    CO2 warming is offset almost exactly by the water cycle and clouds.

    Andrew Bolt quite simply is, one of the best:

    This is on the money, nothing like watching politicians squirm when they realize the gig is up… Myself I’m going to go off the grid as soon as the financials around it all line up; won’t be long now with the rising price of electricity and slowly decreasing costs of battery storage. Be good to be free of this silliness.

    THE straight up truth about “unreliable” (green) energy. Well worth 5 mins of your precious time.

    The Snowyhydro plan is similar to Raccoon Mountain Pumped-Storage Plant outside Chattanooga, TN.

    Operated by TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority), water is pumped from Nickajack Lake on the Tennessee River at the base of Raccoon Mountain to a storage reservoir built at the top of the mountain. The 528 acre reservoir at the top of the mountain takes 28 hours to fill. During periods of high electric demand, water is released from the reservoir through a tunnel drilled through the center of the mountain, driving electric generators in an underground hydroelectric plant. The plant has a capacity of 1,652 megawatts (2,215,000 hp) of electricity and can generate for up to 22 hours and is used most days. Construction was started in 1970 and was completed in 1978. Due to cracks in the generators’ rotors, Raccoon Mountain was idled in March 2012. However, to came fully back on line in April 2014.

    Many years ago, my parents, my brother’s family (they live ca. 1 1/2 hrs. north in Knoxville) and I had a tour of the facility. Now that is an elevator ride down through the tunnel to the generation plant at the bottom.

    We are seeing Man Made Global Warming damage in South Australia.
