Local trends 1998 to 2013 Location of meteoLCD


1. Heinz Horeis: Once upon a time there was a dying forest.
Read this caustic paper in Elsevier's "Technology in Society" (31, 2009, 111-116) on the German Waldsterben panic. "Only artificial respiration is keeping the idea of Waldsterben alive... Waldsterben was not a scientific hypothesis. It was primarily a political motivated slogan which served as a means to receive research money and to achieve certain political goals."
Does this ring a bell when you read of Global Warming or Anthropogenic Climate Change?
(paper is pay-walled, but may be accessed by subscribers to the BNL on-line journals or free subscription to Researchgate). H.t. Notrickszone.

2. Interesting book at Springer by Pietro & Hall: Spain's Photovoltaic Revolution. Introductory text: The authors' comprehensive analysis of energy inputs, which assigns energy cost estimates to all financial expenditures, yields EROI values that are less than half of those claimed by other investigators and by the solar industry. "Modern renewable energies, supposedly born to support a sustainable world, became one jewel of the most unsustainable of human activities, financial greed."

Read this excellent comment by Matt Riddley:

 In a time of widespread violence and disease, good news is no news.
"When asked what I most worry about, I always reply “bureaucracy and superstition"".


 

4. Important new paper by Usoskin & al. "Evidence for Distinct Modes of Solar Activity". The graph of sun spots shows that the period from 1950 to 2000 corresponds to a "Grand Maximum Mode"... and it also was a period with observable global warming!

James Lovelock: "They all talk, they pass laws, they do things, as if they knew what was happening. I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening. They just guess. And a whole group of them meet together and encourage each other’s guesses." (link)

97. Words of the great physicist Freeman Dyson: "Unfortunately the global warming hysteria, as I see it, is driven by politics more than by science. If it happens that I am wrong and the climate experts are right, it is still true that the remedies are far worse than the disease that they claim to cure."

98. Words by the great French philosopher Pascal Bruckner: "All the foolishness of Bolshevism, Maoism, and Trotskyism are somehow reformulated exponentially in the name of saving the planet." (comments here and here)
_______________

99. R. Lindzen: "Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age"


 "Le doute est le commen-cement de la science ; qui ne doute de rien n'examine rien ; qui n'examine rien ne découvre rien ; qui ne découvre rien est aveugle et demeure aveugle".
Jean Chardin, 1686. Journal du voyage du chevalier Chardin en Perse.

 

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Fire and Ice, R. Frost, 1920

"The greatest challenge facing mankind is the challenge of distinguishing reality from fantasy, truth from propaganda."
Michael Crichton + 4Nov08

"Und denn, man muß das Wahre immer wiederholen, weil auch der Irrtum um uns her immer wieder gepredigt wird, und zwar nicht von einzelnen, sondern von der Masse. In Zeitungen und Enzyklopädien, auf Schulen und Universitäten, überall ist der Irrtum oben auf, und es ist ihm wohl und behaglich, im Gefühl der Majorität, die auf seiner Seite ist". Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1828.

The data of MeteoLCD are used to compute the UV-Index published by several Luxembourg periodicals. A research project done in collaboration with the Radiation Protection Office of Luxembourg studies the general UV pattern and the relationship between UVB irradiance and tropospheric ozone concentrations.
