    I have read a few of the emails and it shows a blatant attempt to shut down free speach.
    It also shows that Shukla appears to believe Whitehouse that there is a Fossil Fuel Supplier conspiracy, you can tell that these people never get out of their Ivory Towers.
    They seem to have lost the ability for original thought and rely on groupthink.
    Please read all the info
    It is about taking to task corporations that have withheld information concerning climate change. It is about forcing these corporations to appear before “the people” and answer questions under oath to determine the truth of what they know

    As you seem to be in the know:

    Can you please explain what Farage or any of the exit campaigns leaders policies are for an ordered exit.
    What laws will be repealed
    What Laws will be created
    How will the migrant/immigrant numbers be handled

    How much of the payment to the EU will be paid to the NHS weekly

    It looks like the Independent has unearthed a video of Nigel Farage on television before the vote, and – strange thing – he tells Hilary Benn that the money currently being sent to Europe should be spent on, er, “schools, hospitals and the NHS”.

    Will the farmers and impoverished areas of UK still get the equivalence of their EU handouts?

    Farmers in Northern Ireland have been told not to panic as they wonder how to replace the current £260m they receive in subsidies from Brussels

    These are some of the projects that were approved between 2007 and 2013:
    • Swansea University’s new Bay Campus (£40 million)
    • The dualling of the Heads of the Valleys road (£79 million)
    • Town centre improvements in areas including Merthyr Tydfil, Pontypridd and Llanelli (£80 million)

    The current batch of approved projects (for the period 2014-2020) runs to 60 pages . It includes money for these things:
    • A centre for high-end research in Swansea University (£31.1 million)
    • Cardiff University Brain Research and Imaging Centre (£16.2 million)

    According to the Welsh Government , since 2007 EU projects have achieved the following:
    •Supported 229,110 people to gain qualifications
    •Helped 72,700 people into work
    •Created 36,970 (gross) jobs and 11,925 enterprises

    There are also things like the Common Agricultural Policy, which provides around £200 million a year in single farm payments to more than 16,000 farms in Wales.

    It does not matter how many windmills you prevent being built
    it does not matter how much research you get defunded
    It does not matter how little support there is for climate science
    It does not matter what crazy governments do to defund research

    You will not stop climate change if indeed it is happening.

    I do not want to have the possibility that my descendants will say “why did you do nothing to prevent this” if waters rise, crops die, water resources get polluted, there is no fuel for transportation.

    I do not want them to be able to say that I wanted my life to be easy but I did not care that theirs is hard.

    Why do you applaud Trump for trying to disband/de-tooth the EPA when they have forced companies to reduce pollution to improve the environment for all. This applause does not seem rational. Do we want to go back to the smogs of the 1950s, do we want to pollute the landscape with poisons like they do in china or eastern Europe?

    Of course you can always keep with the mantra against climate research – fraud, fudge the data, models, too many variables, UHI effect,. but it will not change what is happening to the world. And looking at what data is available it looks to me as if climate change IS occurring and it is us causing it.

    You make so much of getting energy to the poor and they will become as us. But you do not seem to realise that if you bring them up to our profligate standard of living using the same limited energy sources as we use, the same limited raw materials we need then the world will not support everyone.
    It is necessary to help then financially, help them to utilise resources and help them to chose energy sources wisely (providing 240V to a hut where the income is £1 per month will not enable them to use a 3kW cooker and 3kW kettle, there is no money for this – but give them a solar panel and battery and they have light for very little).

    The only way that the poor can become richer is for the ricer to become poorer! – I have no problem with that.

    National Grid made special payments of £300m over the last 12 months to big energy companies – sometimes for switching off their power stations in an attempt to “balance” the system.

    The huge payout dwarfs the £37m paid to windfarms to remain offline over the same period to the end of February – a figure used by critics to question the advisability of supporting renewable energy.

    The numbers have come to light because the grid, which operates the transmission lines and pylons around the UK, has started to make them publicly available them for the first time.

    A spokesman for the National Grid said paying gas or wind companies not to operate might appear unusual but a range of often unforeseeable factors, such as plant breakdowns, weather patterns and other issues, made it vital to compensate them for regional asymmetries in supply and demand.

    “Making these constraint payments is the most economic way of balancing the system, such as when power is needed in one part of the network but not in another,” said a spokeswoman.

    The Renewable Energy Foundation, seen by critics as an anti-wind lobby group, has crunched the raw data from the grid on payments made to windfarms in March and say they reached £8.7m.

    John Constable, the director of the Foundation, said he was relaxed about gas companies balancing the system but said wind constraint payments were “rocketing up” and were double the cost of subsidies paid when the turbines operated. “They [windfarm operators] are abusing their power in the market,” he claimed.

    The debate has hotted up amid revelations that David Cameron is considering whether to cut all financial aid to onshore windfarms in the runup to the elections.

    The grid’s official figures for February indicate that constraint payments were below £2m for wind in February but were worth just under £20m to gas operators, which could include the big six suppliers.

    A spokesperson for the grid said there were going to be “peaks and troughs” in payments to all generators and pointed out that constraint payments had started before any wind turbines were built: “These are not a consequence of wind.”

    But the grid admitted that there were additional problems with wind because so many farms had been built so quickly, many in remote parts of the country, before the transmission infrastructure to handle their output was built.

    “It is true that there are new wind farms coming on stream in Scotland that need extra [transmission] capacity to bring the power down to the south of England. A major increase will come when the western link [transmission line] is built but this will not open until 2016,” said the spokeswoman.

    One problem with these is the blanket absorbing neutrons becomes radioactive. Now they use beryllium
    WIKI “The commercial use of beryllium requires the use of appropriate dust control equipment and industrial controls at all times because of the toxicity of inhaled beryllium-containing dusts that can cause a chronic life-threatening allergic disease in some people called berylliosis.”

    The ITER blanket, which covers a surface of 600 m², is one of the most critical and technically challenging components in ITER: together with the divertor it directly faces the hot plasma. Due to its unique physical properties (low plasma contamination, low fuel retention), beryllium has been chosen as the element to cover the first wall. The rest of the blanket modules will be made of high-strength copper and stainless steel.
    According to
    Safety, Environmental Impact, and Economic Prospects of Nuclear Fusion
    Berillium blanket will have a lifetime of 3 years

    Is this really clean energy?

    damn on ban again on wuwt

    In your production scenario:
    if your original sensor recorded one every minute and had an accuracy of +-1C but towards the end of its life it became intermittent with an accuracy of +-2C, and you then purchased a new sensor accurate to +-0.1C recording every second. which readings would be invalid.
    if your production process was plastic moulding would you discard years of data from the old sensor and only use new data requiring a new learning process. Or would it be more sensible to plot both on a graph and use 10 years of history and 1 month of new data to use an engineering judgement to adjust your production process to give maximum yield.
    Would you not adjust the old readings to agree with the new?
    Would you adjust the new readings to agree with the old?

    It is difficult to be totally unbiassed.
    you would have to give air time to:

    flat earthers
    anti vaxers
    geocentric universers
    moon landing conspiracy theorists
    ancient astronauts
    9/11 conspiracies
    nibiru believers
    HAARP: Secret Weapon Used For Weather Modification
    Terrorists (after all some would say they are just freedom fighters!)

    and having shown these programmes you must not mock them or show disbelief.

    Television would certainly be taken along the idiocracy line.
