At my span of years, I thought I would have been able to state that I had seen and witnessed most things; that there wasn’t much that could surprise me: and then blow me down if the time comes when I have to admit a certain admiration for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds!
I mean, 166 wind turbines defeated by a bloody bird; Red-Throated Divers, no less. Sometimes, just sometimes, the mills just grind slowly, but very, very finely!

So, will the military subjugation of Ireland by the English Parliamentarians under Cromwell in 1652 now be followed by the virtual takeover of the very skylines and horizons by gigantic (and thoroughly useless) British mainland-powering 600-foot high wind turbines in 2015?
According to the BBC, the foundation documents will be signed today, and the windmills which England definitely does not want will be miraculously transferred to the bogs of five counties of the Republic.
After all, if the Irish are daft enough to sign up to the stupid ideas of Global Warming, whatever that may mean, they should live up to those ideas by hosting the turbine equipment so disliked by the English.

It allowed forecasts to be made using a combination of satellite data and computer models and traditional techniques such as observing insects, flowers and pot blowing, where herbs are placed into a pot buried in the ground which the rainmaker blows into through a pipe, listening for coming winds.
I always did reckon that whole ‘Gorbals Worming’ bunch was full of hot air, and here, at last, is the proof.

Real scientists speak, and what they say is both delicious and portentious. Via WUWT, it looks as if we’re in for a solar minimum and, as the press release states, that could rather affect the climate. There’s talk of a second Maunder Minimum in the offing which really would put a nip in the air.
It’s delicious not just because the skiing would great but also because the AGW cultists might shut up for once. They might, though I doubt it, astonished though they would be to find that the sun does have something of an effect on the climate afterall. Despite Delingpole’s understandable excitement the warmists are as faithful as any zealot. My money would be on yet new ways to rob us unless we burn Parliament to keep warm.
Standing around the blackened carcass of Parliament may just be where some of us end up since, if it comes to pass, the days of cold will be arriving with the blackouts that will be due wholly to government negligence, ineptitude and adoption of Gaia worship as the state faith.

Who says so?
Via Timmy we find that the NOAA says so.
Best not listen to those who are paid to lie on behalf of the British government then.

To coincide with silly Earth Hour, millions of people will this evening celebrate human achievement by simply going about their business freely.
While greenies sit in the dark, normal people will be cooking dinner, going to the pub, watching a film or driving their cars. How will you celebrate the miracle of human capitalistic achievement? There’s no limit to what you can do because you only have to live your live as normal and avoid being the kind of mean person who regards themselves as ethical.
So my home will be ablaze with light in honour of the human miracle of instant heat, light and energy. The lights will burn at the flick of a switch, something almost all humans who ever lived could not imagine. The sky will light in honour of civilisation, markets and liberty.
Remember, it’s Earth Hour every hour in North Korea.
Human Achievement Hour 2010 is will be between 8.30pm and 9.30pm today.

David Warren writes:
“Copenhagen takes the prize, for consummating the biggest fraud in history — a vast scheme of financial appropriation, premised upon rogue science, from tainted research. This conclusion has become irresistible after the exposure of thousands of e-mails and other documents, revealing the heart of the enterprise: the creation of convenient climate models from massaged numbers, after discarding raw data to make the findings uncheckable. (my emphasis)
But what began as a method to extort research money has spread — through successive world political jamborees at Rio, Kyoto, and now Copenhagen — into something out of all proportion to conventional fraud. Parasitical vested interests (including now the organized kleptocracies of the Third World) have been assembled on such a colossal scale, that even the revelation of the original fraud can do nothing to break their momentum; any more than the 31,000-plus signatures of dissenting scientists on a U.S. petition last year could convince the media that there is no scientific consensus whatever behind the “anthropogenic global warming” propaganda.
The very premise is ludicrous: demonizing carbon dioxide as a “pollutant,” when it is a vital part of the Earth’s atmosphere, absolutely essential not only to plant life but everything that depends on plants.
This week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, under the usual radical Obama appointment (Lisa P. Jackson), did something that could be fairly described as insane. It declared carbon dioxide and five other benign atmospheric “greenhouse gases” to be threats to public health, thus awarding itself extraordinary regulatory power over the entire economy, beyond reach of the U.S. Congress.”
