The 's Propaganda from DeSmog. It mentions 'Wind power is not cheap or secure. Nor is it clean, Conservative peer wrote in one column, despite evidence that renewable energy in the is significantly cheaper than . Ridley wrote last year that global heating was mostly beneficial.'
This is what failed banker Ridley should be doing with wind power, imho...
As the impact of worsens, so will the legacy of those who sought incessantly to deny it and prevent action.

Green Our Planet
The more I ponder this, the more I realise that the only thing preventing us from fixing the climate, is the super rich not being willing to be slightly less super rich. The societal changes we need, would impact them the most in their eyes, and as a general rule, governments seem to think that the super rich must not be hurt in any way. The poor can be hurt as much as you like but you must never hurt the rich.
the anti positions in company of anti positions on the other are one of a kind if you consider that large parts of the lie below sea level
Today, I switched on the for the first time. Years ago, we used to need a fire on some cold Sept nights, but the heating season officially starts on 1 Oct in our part of the world. (I would have kept it going until 1 Dec if my dog hadn't been ill). What's the term again when you have to endure the fact that something is beautiful and terrible at the same time
And we should adapt heating habits: So often shops are overheated at 17C outside only by calendar.

Brazil's previous president, Jair Bolsonaro, gave the green light to deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. The neo-fascist "Trump of the Tropics" in three years during his term oversaw the deforestation of an area larger than Belgium.
Bolsonaro in his own way added to the misery Brazil is currently experiencing. He is a climate traitor to his own country.

THE CLIMATE BOOK
is compered by Greta Thunberg (and she reads much of it on the audiobook) but it is mostly made up of think pieces (or rather makes-you-think pieces) by leading academics and climate scientists).
A property has two sides, which are separated by a thick, armoured wall. On one side lives a very rich millionaire with armoured clothes, an armoured house and a car. Everything is protected against explosions, shrapnel and firearms.
On the other side, a great many poor people, at least 100 thousand, live in a very small space. Children, babies, pensioners and the like. Without any protection, of course.
Now a small bomb is threatening to explode, another millionaire has to decide on which side of the wall the bomb will explode. Unfortunately, we live in a world in which the poorer side is always chosen, even though the millionaire on the other side wouldn't even get a scratch.
This is the metaphor about the financial injustices in this world.

Today, the atmospheric carbon dioxide readings from Mauna Loa in Hawaii, the acid test of how the world is succeeding in combatting climate change, is 422.36 parts per million.
That is 5.06ppm more than the same day last year. That rise in 12 months is probably the largest ever recorded more than double the last decades annual average.
After 27 annual meetings of the convention, all the efforts of nearly 200 member states to tackle the menace of the climate crisis have been a failure, so far.

What a legacy for our children & grandchildren
Burning methane ("natural") gas to make hydrogen to run a bus really isn't much of a step forward, if your aim is to reduce emissions.
Some solar panels and a battery would be a much better option.
"But Guardian Australia understands the buses will run on grey hydrogen, produced using natural gas.
"Currently about 96% of the worlds hydrogen is produced using coal (brown hydrogen) and gas (grey). The production of grey and brown hydrogen releases carbon dioxide and unburnt fugitive methane into the atmosphere."

greener energy will be widespread and substantially cheaper than energy has ever been in 20 years, with reasonable likelihood... Were going to have cheaper energy than weve ever had. Were going to have lower volatility for energy prices. Were going to have better energy security. Were going to have low pollution. Were going to have lower environmental impact and better sustainability. And most of all, no or minimal greenhouse gas emissions.
