Cockup or conspiracy?
The fourth in the series of Spectator articles on wind droughts pointed a finger of suspicion at the meteorologists for failing to issue wind drought warnings.
Was it just bad luck and bad judgement that accounted for the failure of the meteorologists to notice wind droughts? Or did it suit them to fiddle while the British and German economies burned?
Warming alarmism begat the net zero crusade and what begat warming alarmism? Fun fact: the lead agency to formalize climate concern on a “scientific” basis was the WMO, the World Meteorological Association, commissioned by the UN in 1961 to work with the ICSU, the International Council for Science (ICSU) to develop a Global Atmospheric Research Program (GARP).
GARP’s good work paved the way for the next great leap forward to promote concern about the “climate crisis”. Another major UN report on climate change was commissioned in 1974 and then in 1979 the WMO, in cooperation with a number of other UN agencies, organized a World Climate Conference
In brief, meteorologists have their fingerprints all over the climate science story and their agencies in every nation in the world have busy adjusting the official records to maintain the climate rage and the policies that follow from it, most obviously the subsidised and mandated corruption of the power grid by intermittent wind and solar power.
Wind droughts are the fatal flaw in the RE program and if they had been generally appreciated at the beginning the wind and solar industries could have been aborted until storage is available in some future life.
The four articles in the wind drought series in The Spectator can be found in the Basic Information Pack issued by The Energy Realists of Australia.
