Opportunity to Advertise on an Iceberg
ST. JOHN'S, NL / ACCESSWIRE / November 16, 2017 /... 
You've heard the expression "it's only the tip of the iceberg;" be the first to own this expression... Larry Daley of St. John's, a Titanic Expedition Logistics Specialist, is the only experienced facilitator in the world that can provide the opportunity to wrap or stage an advertisement on a real, North Atlantic Iceberg with a corporate logo or message.

Every year, thousands of Icebergs float from Greenland Fjords and eventually pass the Newfoundland and Labrador coastline. Size and timing will be monitored to select the best berg for exposure and impact. 

The company will attach the advertising (produced with this specific use in mind - wrap or otherwise) safely over the gigantic berg. For those who are less familiar with the size and magnitude of this offering, the company could safely compare the size of the iceberg to that which sunk the Titanic in 1912.

Company officials ensure that this is a very safe and environmentally friendly procedure and will not harm the marine environment... A stunt and safety team will execute the event and any materials used will be removed promptly, ensuring the environment is returned back to its original state.

This thrilling venture, which could make the record books, is to be sold to the highest bidder with starting bids at $500,000 US plus production costs, with an event date for early 2018... The ideas could include... sending a strong message about global warming or even a marriage proposal.

Due to the magnitude of this event, serious inquiries can be made to our facilitator, via our website: Our facilitator, Allison Crawford, of Agency 80 Inc., will contact those selected for consideration.

Delingpole: All Hail Trump

Yay! Be proud, America and relish your splendid isolation! You are, officially, the only nation ...which hasn’t signed up to the Paris Climate Accord...
America, Land of the Free – the last bastion of common sense, the final redoubt of Western Civilization in a world all but overwhelmed by the green lunacy of the Climate Industrial Complex...
It doesn’t matter that President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord, these quislings are now claiming: individual U.S. cities and states can go ahead and decarbonize their economies, for all the world as if it were that crooked uranium saleswoman sitting in the Oval Office instead of the Donald...Green bloviators like ex-Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Moonbeam and the rest are, in other words, just a bunch of virtue-signalling charlatans...

                  THE  NIGHT  OF  THE  LIVING  DEATH  STAR


Astronomers find a ‘Zombie’ star that lived and died – twice

                                THREAT  OR  MENACE ?

Representative Posey of  Washington posed these questions to the panel of witnesses at  the House Science Committee's  November 8 hearing on geoengineering:
"How would it compare to the risks of bioengineering and  nanotechnologies?" 
"Any hard evidence on the effect that of subsurface activity has on the atmosphere?  
I mean we know what ended the last ice age. 
It was an asteroid strike which basically  created the Gulf of Mexico, and darkened out the Earth for many, many years, and allowed it to freeze over. 
There are some conditions that exist here now that have the potential to recreate that catastrophe. What if then -- some of the research I've seen at Yellowstone, the big volcano in the Azores that they say will cause a 100 foot high tsunami, you know?  
Your thoughts on how that will affect us."

                                         STRIKE  A MATCH

‘Deceptive’ Op-Ed Ignores Data Showing Natural Gas Has Greatly Improved U.S. Air Quality

Just in time for Halloween, the Associated Press facilitated some classic “Keep It in the Ground” fear-mongering Tuesday by publishing an op-ed  penned by Texas A&M University professor Gunnar Schade that essentially claims the shale boom has damaged U.S. air quality over the past 10 years.

First Lady  Melania Trump  said she enjoyed her time in Japan ... at  a  primary school where she had a brief  lesson  in calligraphy. 


CNN reported
At the sight of the 200 or so uniformed students assembled to greet her in the school’s gymnasium, Trump’s face lit up — she high-fived them, was drowned in hugs and posed for a group photo,  where, like the kids, she made a peace sign with her two fingers 


The climate sign was selected through a collaborative process powered by a team of students from a university network including Stanford, UC Berkeley, Georgetown, the University of Southern California, UC Northridge, and the Monterey Institute of International Studies. 

Individuals around the globe contributed their ideas for the proposed hand sign, as shown on the left.

Organizations and individuals in 50 countries were consulted on the top dozen hand signs for feedback on cultural appropriateness.

With six hand signs remaining, thirteen advisory committee members from top environmental organizations and branding agencies contributed their thoughts on which sign should be chosen, 



Another nest of ‘scientific’ haters goes dark

You may remember “ScienceBlogs’ The official party line (according to Wikipedia) was:
ScienceBlogs was an invitation-only blog network and virtual community. It was created by Seed Media Group in 2006 to enhance the public understanding of science.
As a result of the free rein given to bloggers... bloggers on the network sometimes got into arguments with each other over a series of posts.
 He routinely deviated from science topics into attack mode...I decided some years back it was time to ignore him after this poll was conducted: Reader poll – should I sue the pants off Greg Laden?
My decision then was to ignore him, and the decision was a good one. His blog died in the vacuum that followed. Nobody cared anymore what he had to say.
Another blog at ScienceBlogs, “Deltoid”, run by Tim Lambert, met a similar fate, but much earlier on. It seems Tim crossed the line one day on a climate opinion, and smeared a respectable journalist, and that journalist decided to fight back, hard. I had some behind-the-scenes involvement in that..
Last but not least, let us not forget “science blogger” William Connolley, the copious ever-present Wikipedia climate bully-editor, who got himself suspended from Wikipedia for multiple violations.  continues as a respected Wiki syndic despites intensive WikiTrolling by  Watts; fanboys.

 It seems this post was prescient:
Yep, his “science blog” is dead and as far as I know, nobody attended the funeral.

So much for “Taking science by the throat“.
Moral of this story: hate isn’t marketable.


A Discussion on the Absence of a  Measurable Greenhouse Effect
Joseph E Postma, M.Sc. Astronomy 
An Original Publication of Principia Scientific International
A contextual flaw underlying the interpretation of a back-radiative greenhouse effect is identified. Real-time empirical data from a climate measurement station is used to observe the influence of the “greenhouse effect” on the temperature profiles. The conservation of heat energy ordinary differential equation with the inclusion of the “greenhouse effect” is developed, which informs us of the temperature profile we expect to see when a “greenhouse effect” is present. 

No “greenhouse effect” is observed in the measured data. The latent heats of H2O are identified as the only real heat-trapping phenomenon and are modelled. 

A discussion on the existence of universal principles is used to explain why simplistic arguments cannot be used as justification for the greenhouse effect...If you placed yourself out into the woods, naked and with no tools, what would you do?  What would an animal do?  An animal would just start sniffing around and eating whatever smelled eatable.

But a human wouldn’t do that. The first thing a human would do is start changing the local environment, by building a shelter, by fashioning bodily coverings, by using sharp rocks and learning how to create sharp rocks for cutting, by using vines to tie things together, by figuring out how to store water and food, by making sharply-pointed sticks for hunting, by making a controlled fire for various purposes, etc.  

All of man’s actions for fundamental survival are based  on changing the environment. If man is not supposed to change the environment, then it means that man is not supposed to exist,

RUSH: November 4th... on this program. Back then, I, your host, as a descriptive tool, created for your visualizing  The Four Corners of Deceit  in our culture that altogether combined, suffice to lie to students and the American people. 

The Four Corners of Deceit are government, academia, science, and the media...
I pointed out ... that one of the things the left in this country attempts to do is to codify elements of their ideology as science. Liberalism is science, and therefore it’s irrefutable. Science is what is. Science allows for no agreement. Once science says something, then that something is, and you can’t refute it and you can’t disagree with it. 
You can, but you would be a kook. This is one of the techniques that the left has used. Global warming is nothing more than the left’s political ideology. It’s nothing more than one of the planks of their grand design, but they codify it as science so it’s indisputable.  I’m talking about the way that they interact and impose things on the low-information crowd. 
Global warming, many other things are attempted and achieved this way. Codify liberalism as science, therefore making it irrefutable, making it inarguable. But in the case of global warming, it’s failed, everybody knows it’s a hoax. Well, not everybody, but a growing number do. 
Now, up until the global warming hoax, science had almost total credibility.  If somebody was a scientist and said something, it was automatically believed.  Just the way, by the way, journalists used to be believed.  Make no mistake,

What You Won’t Find in the New National Climate Assessment

Guest essay by Dr. Pat Michaels
Under the U.S. Global Change Research Act of 1990, the federal government has been charged with producing large National Climate Assessments (NCA), and today the most recent iteration has arrived. It is typical of these sorts of documents–much about how the future of mankind is doomed to suffer through increasingly erratic weather and other tribulations. It’s also missing a few tidbits of information that convincingly argue that everything in it with regard to upcoming 21st century climate needs to be taken with a mountain of salt.
The projections in the NCA are all based upon climate models. If there is something big that is systematically wrong with them, then the projections aren’t worth making or believing.

U.S. Report Says Humans Cause Climate Change, Contradicting Top Trump Officials

WASHINGTON — Directly contradicting much of the Trump administration’s position on climate change, 13 federal agencies unveiled an exhaustive scientific report on Friday that says humans are the dominant cause of the global temperature rise that has created the warmest period in the history of civilization.
Over the past 115 years global average temperatures have increased 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit, leading to record-breaking weather events and temperature extremes, the report says. The global, long-term warming trend is “unambiguous,” it says, and there is “no convincing alternative explanation” that anything other than humans — the cars we drive, the power plants we operate, the forests we destroy — are to blame.
The report was approved for release by the White House, but the findings come as the Trump administration is defending its climate change policies. The United Nations convenes its annual climate change conference next week in Bonn, Germany, and the American delegation is expected to face harsh criticism over President Trump’s decision to walk away from the 195-nation Paris climate accord and top administration officials’ stated doubts about the causes and impacts of a warming planet.
“This report has some very powerful, hard-hitting statements that are totally at odds with senior administration folks and at odds with their policies,” said Philip B. Duffy, president of the Woods Hole Research Center. “It begs the question, where are members of the administration getting their information from? They’re obviously not getting it from their own scientists.”
While there were pockets of resistance to the report in the Trump administration, according to climate scientists involved in drafting the report, there was little appetite for a knockdown fight over climate change among Mr. Trump’s top advisers, who are intensely focused on passing a tax reform bill — an effort they think could determine the fate of his presidency.

Max Bögl Wind puts turbine on THE tallest tower, 178m. Blade tip to 246.5m

More height, greater efficiency, and more power: That is the aspiration behind Max Bögl Wind AG and their hybrid towers for wind power plants. The pioneering spirit of this Bavarian company is now in full view in the town of Gaildorf near Stuttgart, home of the world’s tallest onshore wind turbine. Located in the Limpurg Hills with a hub height of 178 meters and a total height of 246.5 meters, this wind turbine is a clear sign that Max Bögl Wind AG is pushing the boundaries when it comes to harvesting wind energy.
The world’s tallest wind turbine (foreground) is part of a wind farm that consists of four wind turbines with hub heights ranging from 155 to 178 meters. “Shorter” turbines are in the background.
This height record is possible in part due to the natural water reservoir built into the turbine. The wind farm in Gaildorf is not just any wind farm, but one based on a totally new power plant concept – the water battery – a technological innovation that is setting new industry standards. For the first time ever, power generation from renewable energy is combined with a modern pumped-storage power plant. This new storage concept uses the foundation of the wind turbine as a water reservoir, which results in a 40-meter increase in the height of the turbine. This is hugely beneficial because each additional meter of hub height added to a wind turbine increases the annual energy yield by 0.5 to 1%. High hub heights mean less wind turbulence and significantly better wind yield, especially for inland locations with weak wind conditions.
The world’s tallest wind turbine is part of a wind farm that consists of four wind turbines with hub heights ranging from 155 to 178 meters. Equipped with 3.4-MW generators from GE, they will begin supplying clean energy to the German power grid in spring 2018.

Innovative power sources and storage 
The foundations of the wind turbine towers in Gaildorf are water reservoirs with a storage capacity of 70-megawatt-hours (MWh). A penstock connects them with a hydroelectric power station and its lower reservoir located 200 meters deeper into the valley. The water battery, which was also referred to as natural power storage in the Gaildorf pilot project, can store surplus power from the grid and release it when necessary. It acts as a short-term storage facility and helps maintain grid stability while guaranteeing a continuous, uninterrupted supply of power. The pumped-storage plant is able to switch between production and storage within 30 seconds.

                       SINCE  SCOTT  PRUITT  DINED  ALONE

Today a large group of some sixty-five top scientists sent a letter to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt demanding that he initiate a process to reconsider the so-called Endangerment Finding of 2009...
if you go to the link you will see that they are a who's who of the top scientific people ... many of them have top degrees and top professorships at top institutions.  
Now, perhaps you have seen the claim that "97% of scientists agree" that human-caused global warming is a crisis,  or something like that... Don't bank on it.  No such group exists.

Yes, there is a substantial government-funded clique of lightweights and charlatans... putting out fake press releases... 

But no such group that could be assembled could remotely match our group of sixty-five for bona fide scientific heft.  If  they try to assemble such a group, the contrast of the real scientists  versus  the lightweights will be immediately apparent.
