Watts Up With That?

Currently, details are few, but apparently the results of a major scientific study on the effects of anthropogenic aerosols on clouds are going to have large implications for climate change projections—substantially lowering future temperature rise expectations.

In a blog post from the Department of Meteorology of the University of Reading, Dr. Nicolas Bellouin describes some preliminary results from a research study he leads investigating the influence of aerosols on cloud properties.  The behavior of clouds, including how they are formed, how long they last, how bright they are, etc., plays a very large role in the earth’s climate system, and is considered the weakest part of global climate models. The climate model cloud deficiency results from a combination of scientific uncertainty about cloud behavior, as well as the modeling challenges that come from simulating the small spatial and temporal scales over…

Wind Industry Corruption: Plug Secretly Pulled on Wind Farm Health Investigation

STOP THESE THINGS

Under-the-table transactions...

Back in March STT reported on events in Huron County, Ontario – where, overwhelmed by health complaints, regional authorities appeared to have relented in an effort to gather the evidence of the known and obvious effects of incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound – and to act on it (see our post here).

We pointed out, however, that what was being put forward smacked of tokenism; and that it will be the combination of individuals (victims and properly motivated professionals) – untainted by the influence of government entrenched institutional corruption – that brings the wind industry to account.

Now, the events that have since unfolded in Huron County only add weight to that forlorn prediction.

While the Medical Officer of Health for Huron County, Dr Janice Owen was, no doubt, firmly motivated by her professional, ethical and moral duty to her fellow citizens – to get to the…
