What if the very technology the warmists employed to stop global warming actually produced warming itself?
Air temperatures around four of the world’s largest wind farms have increased by up to 0.72C in a decade, researchers have found.
In contrast, Earth’s average temperature has warmed by only 0.8C since 1900.
[…]Scientists at the State University of New York at Albany studied satellite data of the areas around the wind farms, in Texas, from 2003 to 2011.
Publishing their findings in the scientific journal Nature, they said: ‘We attribute this warming primarily to wind farms.”
Will the greenies denounce the bird-beating friends?
The Mail on Sunday (not online) carries the news that several prominent Scottish environmental groups are sponsored by wind farm companies.
Environment group WWF Scotland admitted that it had received more than £22,500 in the past year from one of the UK’s biggest energy firms, Scottish and Southern Energy.
Now, I should point out the fact that while any money that come from fossil fuel companies is tainted in mud and manure, and that every dollar of which results in a baby seal being clubbed, money that comes from renewable energy companies is clean and shiny, environmentally friendly and smells like lavender and potpourri (not to mention comes from the taxpayer). It is also important to note that this money clearly doesn’t present a conflict of interest in any way, shape or form, seeing as how people who run the WWF and other environmental lobbies are pure of heart and more righteous than the rest of us. These are folk who are not subject to the same corruptions as us mere simpletons. We oil shills on the other hand, need to take a good, hard look at ourselves, being that we are nasty, small people who would sell out the planet in favour of a simple cheque from the oil companies. I’m waiting, Charles Koch.
