Tony Heller covers the latest “extreme heat” scare in India in his usual inimitable fashion:

    Heller sums it up perfectly. CNN and, by association the rest of the alarmist cabal,are deliberately misusing statistics to fool the gullible.

    Factoid of the day:

    Cold ambient temperatures kill twice as many Indians as warm ambient temperatures.

    Not so off-track, I smiled at a sport’s report in today’s Telegraph. Now what does it remind me of?

    Mercedes don’t know how to fix Lewis Hamilton’s ‘diva car’

    “Mercedes say they are struggling to unlock the full potential of their “diva” of a car because the data they are seeing on their computers does not match what their drivers are telling them. …..”

      Ah, but Mercedes still use – shhhh🤫 – fossil fuels, so not that kind of battery problem. Could the computer data possibly be wrong🤔? If not, are the drivers past it – a variant on the dog ate my homework? 🤣

    Good Heavens! Tropical India is hot in summer? Who knew?
    Obviously not CNN.

      How long before CNN discovers that Antarctica is cold in winter (and all the time)? Wait for it…

    The other day I posted about consultancy LCP working out that we needed 20GWh of batteries to reduce wind curtailment by just 1.8TWh in 2021. They are now providing new estimates that by 2030 we will be curtailing 72TWh, which is a quarter of our consumption. They are now talking about a need for 50GW of backup, having recognised but not really admitted that batteries aren’t going to solve the problem. I think this is the first time I’ve seen forecasts that come close to what I reckoned 5 years ago. There proposed system is going to be very expensive.

      The firm LCP appears to be “Lane Clark & Peacock” that seems to be designed to find ways to get rich from the AGW (climate change) obsession. Not that there is anything wrong with that! The Climate Cult has made converts of politicians who write laws and regulations to which smart people respond.
      Either this or the folks at LCP are smoking something!

      Thanks for the link. It is interesting reading but read carefully.

    Paul, off topic BBC ECU agrees Rowlatt lied over Madagascar.
    Yet another win for you.

    Again a little off topic but file away for future reference –
    “It is worth noting that as a professional statistician working in mathematical modelling I am eminently qualified to understand the IPCC reports. I have read each of these reports (yes, they take some digesting). Remember that whilst the IPCC reports may reference peer reviewed papers, it does not in and of itself meet the bar for peer review.
    The result of all this reading and review is a clear understanding that humans are almost certainly not responsible for any perceived change in our climate.” Dave Handley, comments DT 9/5/22

      …and the SPM does not – afaik – itself rely on the ‘peer-reviewed’ papers, more a political synopsis of them that satisfies their (IPCC/WEF) ambitions.
