Dear ATS Readers, Writers,
Flag and star for this one.
My first thoughts were blackmail type behaviour... but the infamous "they" seem to ignore documented facts.
A lot of this is focused on coal fired electricity generation. And wanting/demanding/dictating a certain amount of "renewable" energy, such as solar
and wind power generation provide.
Recently, South Australia experienced a major blackout mainly because they relied too much on "renewables" for power.
Bad storm rolled in, creating no sun for solar, and wind exceeded the limit for the windmills, and boom, blackout. Wind power towers only work in a
certain range of windspeed. If wind speed gets too high, they goes offline, and "feather" the blades...
Temeratures HAVE dropped. Glaciers in New Zealand are growing. Winters in the UK are earlier and harsher. Recent snowstorm in USA in the south,
The biggest driver for the weather is the sun. Which has had a major slowdown in activity over time. It was one of the strangest solar maximums in
memory; and is now going into its traditional 11 year cycle minimum low...
We are looking at pretty good cold spell for at least 6 or 7 years... and at the end of it, many scientists are saying the sun is looking seriously
like a Maunder Minimum type spotless event is due...
So, how about slowing down, turn off the panic world wide for some drastic taxes, or horribly expensive "solutions"...
Why not wait and see what happens with the sun before moving forward with decisions, that if followed through on, could easily exaggerate a bad solar
minimum; and cause world wide famine for example due to crop failures.
The carbon credit stuff is a ponzi scheme thing...
