Sweden's Electric Car Boom Is Under Threat From Power Crunch

Sweden’s ambitious plan to drastically cut emissions from transport by bringing millions of electric cars onto the road could be derailed by a lack of power capacity for new charging stations in major cities.

An increase in government grants sent sales of electric cars surging by 253% in the first five months this year, but the rally could be over before it’s really started. Demand for electricity in Stockholm and other cities is outgrowing capacity in local grids, forcing new charging networks to compete with other projects from housing to subway lines to get hooked up.

Snow in Australia: Rare snow falls in subtropical Queensland. See the photos

OK. It’s snowing in Australia.

Snow and icy conditions have made their way toward eastern Australia. Snow has begun falling in Queensland, Australia, which is typically a subtropical environment, according to BBC News.

Australia's Bureau of Meteorology told BBC News that the snow is a “rare” sight.

'Wild,' 'woolly' and 'rare': Parts of Australia blanketed with snow

In what forecasters are calling a "rare" event, Australia saw snow Monday in parts of its eastern coast that hadn't had a significant snowfall in four years.

"A few snowflakes seen this morning near the NSW border at Eukey, just south of #Stanthorpe," the Bureau of Meteorology in Queensland wrote in a tweet.

Photos shared on social media showed a layer of ice and snow blanketing the ground of parts of the island as the Bureau of Meteorology issued weather warnings throughout its eastern coast.

The snow was seen in various parts of Queensland and New South Wales, according to forecasters.

California snowpack 202% of average for this time of year

The amount of snow blanketing the Sierra Nevada is even larger than the 2017 snowpack that pulled the state out of a five-year drought, California water officials said.

As of Thursday, the snowpack measured 202% of average after a barrage of storms throughout winter and spring, according to the Department of Water Resources.

The wet weather has slowed but not stopped, with thunderstorms prompting flash flood warnings Sunday in the central and southern parts of the state.

At this time last year, the snowpack measured 6% of average — making this year 33 times bigger than 2018, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

In 2017, the snowpack measured 190% of average.

The snowpack supplies about 30 percent of state water needs.

Statewide snowpack at 517% of normal; hikers may not enjoy dry trails until July

Summit County said hello to June on Saturday, but not quite yet to summer. The enormous snowpack left over from an historic winter has yet to melt off, leaving higher elevation trails in the area – especially 14ers – mostly inaccessible until later in the summer. Quandary Peak, the only 14er within Summit County proper and one of the most popular in the state, may not even be accessible until August.

Delingpole: To Survive, Britain’s Conservatives Must ‘Get Rid of the Green Crap’

Besides the Brexit Party, one of the big winners of the European Parliament elections — in Germany, France, Austria, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark and the UK — were the Greens.
There’s a lesson buried in this story — but it’s not what you might think. And it’s definitely, definitely the opposite of the conclusion being drawn by the Conservative Party.

In the Conservative mindset, green issues are one of those politically neutral, morally and socially positive causes you can embrace without betraying your principles or alienating your base.

This delusion is widespread, as we can see from the number of Tory leadership candidates who have decided to campaign on a green-friendly platform. Rory Stewart, Michael Gove, Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt, Matt Hancock, even the hard-headed and supposedly right-wing Dominic Raab have all, with varying degrees of canting enthusiasm, mentioned environment and climate change among their urgent priorities.

Corporate media accidentally admits higher CO2 levels were present on planet Earth millions of years before humankind ever existed

Hilariously, in the process of fear-mongering about CO2 levels supposedly reaching critical levels today, new “research” by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) claims that, if something isn’t done now to reverse this alleged disastrous trend towards apparent planetary CO2 suffocation, total human CO2 emissions “could match those of Earth’s last major greenhouse warming event” – which AGU says occurred during the “Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum” period roughly 56 million years ago.

But wait: What would have caused CO2 levels to reach epic proportions 56 million years ago before humans were even in the picture? AGU doesn’t say, nor does it address the fact that 56 million years ago, there were no vehicles around to burn fossil fuels, either.

Sea level data ALTERED by scientists to create false impression of rising oceans

A scientific paper published by a team of Australian researchers has revealed a startling find: Scientists at the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) have been “adjusting” historical data regarding tide levels in the Indian Ocean. Their “highly questionable” activities have depicted rapidly rising seas — but the truth is that there is no reason to be alarmed at all. Scientists have found that sea levels are stable — and have been for the entirety of the 20th century.

To put it simply, these PSMSL “scientists” have been arbitrarily changing their data in order to create the illusion of a problem that doesn’t actually exist.

According to the Australian research team, sea levels in the Indian ocean have remained stable for decades. Dr. Albert Parker and Dr. Clifford Ollier recently published their astounding research in the journal Earth Systems and Environment; their extensive research gives an in-depth look at how this massive deception was undertaken.

‘IT’S JUST THE WEATHER’: METEOROLOGIST FACT-CHECKS OCASIO-CORTEZ ON CLIMATE CHANGE

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested the tornado warning that hit the D.C. area Thursday was part of the “climate crisis” she has previously said humanity only has 12 years left to solve.

“The climate crisis is real y’all,” Ocasio said on Instagram Thursday, “guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country?”

However, she was quickly fact-checked by meteorologist Ryan Maue, who pointed out that far from proof of a “climate crisis,” D.C.’s tornado warning was “just the weather.”

Weather WARNING: Solar minimum arrives EARLY and it could bring long EXTREME cold

Cosmic forecasting website Space Weather said the lack of sunspots is similar to the last solar minimum.

The site stated: “The sun has been without sunspots for 79 days so far this year – more than half the time.

“To find a similar number of blank suns, you have to go back to 2009 when the sun was experiencing the deepest solar minimum in a century.”

Earth’s host star was not expected to head into a solar minimum until around 2020 and, if the phenomenon has arrived early, this will mean a prolonged cold snap.

Flashback: In Search Of... The Coming Ice Age

In this day and age of global warming alarmism people either forgot or don’t know that there was a time only 35 years ago when “scientists” were screaming and warning us of the coming ice age.

Below is an episode of “in Search of …”, a 1970s show hosted by Leonard ‘Mr. Spock’ Nimoy that explored mysteries of the day. This particular episode first aired in May, 1978 and explores “The Coming Ice Age.”

I find this episode interesting because they present the same historical data and trends we’re familiar with today – including the 40 year temperature decline that had begun 40 years earlier. But in the late 70s alarmists interpreted this data to mean an ice age was imminent.

Denver weather: Snow arrives early at DIA, potential of 1 to 2 inches of accumulation in city

Snow began falling at Denver International Airport early Monday afternoon, hours earlier than forecasters had predicted, forcing meteorologists to increase their projections for snowfall in the Mile High City.

“Right now there is currently a snow shower at Denver International Airport,” said Natalie Sullivan, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Boulder. She said a band of snow arrived at DIA much earlier than originally expected.

“We’re looking at the potential of 1 to 2 inches of snow in Denver now,” Sullivan said. The NWS had predicted as recently as Monday morning that it wouldn’t start snowing in Denver until 1 a.m. Tuesday.

Long before global warming, a “consensus” of scientists warned that global COOLING was responsible for extreme weather events

The global cooling scare of the 1970s is now proclaimed to be nothing more than an urban myth, but at one time it was indeed a very real concern.

The National Center For Atmospheric Research is the U.S. federal government’s top authority on climate science. And in 1974, Steven Schneider was at its helm. Back then, Schneider was a proponent of “global cooling,” stating that the dropping temperatures would lead to a massive food shortage. Sounds familiar, right? One solution proposed at the time was to melt the Arctic ice cap. The narrative from the 1970s mirrors that of the global warming discussion today: The planet’s temperature is changing, people will starve, and only extreme human intervention can save us from a perilous fate. Only today, scientists are exploring perhaps even more appalling options — such as blocking the sun’s rays to artificially cool the Earth’s temperature.

Do We Really Have A Decade Left To Solve Climate Change?

Wise alecks on social media noted with amusement how Beto O’Rourke recently claimed humans had only ten years to act on climate change, thus one-upping Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who had previously gone out on a limb by putting the deadline at twelve years.

Snark aside, it’s important to point out that the “consensus science” as codified, for example, in the periodic reports from the United Nations do not support such a cliff-hanger mentality at all.

It may be May, but Spring has not quite sprung in the Golden State.

Parts of California still resemble a scene out of winter, with a series of storms bringing several feet of snow to mountain areas, ahead of a "significant" severe weather threat across the nation's midsection.

The National Weather Service said that a series of Pacific storms are bringing heavy rain, mountain snow, and gusty winds across the West. A winter storm warning was issued Wednesday night that will run through Friday morning for the southern Sierra Nevada.

Bill Nye Brings Out the F-Bombs and a Blowtorch to Talk Climate Change

Science popularizer Bill Nye told viewers of a popular late-night show that Earth is "on [expletive] fire" while lighting a globe with a blowtorch.

During his appearance on HBO's "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver" on Sunday (May 12), Nye used frank language to talk to millennials about the impacts of global warming on Earth. (Nye's comments are heavily edited here for language; viewer discretion is advised if you watch the video.)

"By the end of this century, if temperatures keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another 4 to 8 degrees," Nye said to Oliver. (Nye was referring to degrees Celsius; the equivalent change in Fahrenheit is roughly 7 to 14 degrees). "What I'm saying is, the planet's on [expletive] fire."

Europe Electroglides have Passed Climate Alarmism’s Point of No Return

Europe’s petroleum phase-out planners have long been arch-reifiers of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming hypothesis. Their enlistment of the European auto industry may prove a coup de grace. Historians may pick 2019 as the year European climate alarmism passed a point of no return.

During the 1970s oil crisis European governments devised stratagems to reduce oil consumption. These involved phasing-out oil-fueled electrical generation; improving public transit; and imposing vehicle fuel efficiency standards. Much hope was placed in bio-fueled, and hydrogen-fueled, vehicles; …in electric vehicles (EVs), not so much.

US weather warning: WINTER returns in May bringing SNOW and sub zero temperatures

The National Weather Service (NWS) said this could be made worse with additional rain forecast.

The NWS added: “Plan on slippery and snow-covered roads as elevation increases, especially above 1,500 feet.”

The service also posted a weather warning on their Twitter page.

Highlighting the areas of concern, they said: “We have issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the shaded areas. 1 to 3 inches expected even in the valleys.

“As best as we can tell, this is the first winter weather product that we have issued in May since 2002.”

Jakobshavn Isbrae: Mighty Greenland glacier slams on brakes

European satellites have detailed the abrupt change in behaviour of one of Greenland's most important glaciers.

In the 2000s, Jakobshavn Isbrae was the fastest flowing ice stream on the island, travelling at 17km a year.

As it sped to the ocean, its front end also retreated and thinned, dropping in height by as much as 20m year.

But now it's all change. Jakobshavn is travelling much more slowly, and its trunk has even begun to thicken and lengthen.

"It's a complete reversal in behaviour and it wasn't predicted," said Dr Anna Hogg from Leeds University and the UK Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM).

Bill Nye says "the planet's on f****ing fire" and we need to "grow the f*** up"

Bill Nye deviated from his kid-friendly "Science Guy" persona on Sunday night to help John Oliver talk about the severity of climate change. Nye proved he's not always the mild-mannered nerd millennials grew up with when he joined Oliver during his episode detailing carbon pricing and the Green New Deal.

Oliver first outlined the case for the Green New Deal, the environment and jobs proposal introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "To its eternal credit, the Green New Deal has succeeded in getting people talking, but that won't mean anything unless that talk turns into action," Oliver said.

"We're going to need a lot of different policies working tandem, and we have to take action right now," the comedian said, towards the end of the segment. "But you don't have to just take that from me. Instead, I'm happy to say Bill Nye has actually agreed to drive the urgency home at this point by actually doing one of his enjoyable, lighthearted demonstrations."

Climate Change is Making Trees Grow Faster

A new study found that Dahurian larch in China's northern forests grew more from 2005 to 2014 than in the previous 40 years.

The study that looked at growth rings also found that the oldest trees had the biggest growth spurts. Trees older than 400 years grew 80 percent more rapidly in those 10 years than in the past 300 years.

In the meantime, trees between 250 and 300 years old grew 35 percent more during that time period, while trees younger than 250 years grew between 11 and 13 percent more.

Yes, it is May and snow fell on some parts of Massachusetts on Mother’s Day

Reports of snow falling on some parts of Massachusetts wasn’t a joke, after all, it is Mother’s Day and not April Fools’ Day.

The National Weather Service in Albany said there were reports of snowfall in the southern and central Berkshires. There were also reports of sleet and snow mixing with rain in the northern Litchfield Hills.

Slick spots on the Massachusetts Turnpike forced authorities to reduce the speed limit on the highway in the area. There was sleet in the Otis to Russell areas, the National Weather Service said. There were some crashes on the Mass. Pike due to the weather.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres challenges NZ Government to tax pollution

The head of the UN, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, has challenged the Government to slap a tax on pollution by shifting taxes "from salaries to carbon".

Speaking at a breakfast with high school leaders in Auckland, Guterres said he wanted to convey a message.

"Shift taxes from salaries, to carbon. We must tax pollution, not people," he said.

This means reducing income tax as a tax on carbon is applied, Guterres said.

"We need to make sure that when we adopt measures that increase costs, that we reduce costs in other aspects of the economy."

Around 10,000 people attended the unauthorised Teknival 2019 festival in the central Creuse region at the weekend, where temperatures dropped to -3 degrees Celsius (27 degrees fahrenheit) overnight on Saturday to Sunday.

Around 30 people were treated for hypothermia at the scene and two were taken to hospital, local officials told AFP, with the several centimetres (inches) of snow turning the festival camping experience into an endurance test.

The Reason Renewables Can't Power Modern Civilization Is Because They Were Never Meant To

Over the last decade, journalists have held up Germany’s renewables energy transition, the Energiewende, as an environmental model for the world.

“Many poor countries, once intent on building coal-fired power plants to bring electricity to their people, are discussing whether they might leapfrog the fossil age and build clean grids from the outset,” thanks to the Energiewende, wrote a New York Times reporter in 2014.

With Germany as inspiration, the United Nations and World Bank poured billions into renewables like wind, solar, and hydro in developing nations like Kenya.

But then, last year, Germany was forced to acknowledge that it had to delay its phase-out of coal, and would not meet its 2020 greenhouse gas reduction commitments. It announced plans to bulldoze an ancient church and forest in order to get at the coal underneath it.

Emma Thompson the first-class hypocrite! Actress is pictured dining on champagne and beef in £18,000 personal booth on carbon-spewing BA plane jetting to New York days after lecturing us all to stop flying

Left-wing actress Dame Emma Thompson was branded a ‘first-class hypocrite’ last night after jetting to New York just days after backing climate protests that brought chaos to London.

The Jeremy Corbyn supporter took her personal booth in the luxury cabin of a British Airways flight from Heathrow to JFK on Friday morning after earlier demanding: ‘We should all fly less.’

First-class BA flights to New York cost up to £18,000 and generate nearly two tons of carbon dioxide – the main driver of climate change – for each passenger in the elite cabin.

Onlookers claim the multi-millionaire activist also drank Laurent-Perrier champagne and dined on beef carpaccio – even though cattle farming is also a major contributor to greenhouse gasses.

It's May and it's still snowing in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

While southeast Michigan is battling floods on the first day of May, Michigan's Upper Peninsula is facing a different weather dilemma — snow.

About 3-4 inches of snow fell as of Wednesday morning, said Matt Zika, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Marquette office. Zika said the preliminary snow accumulation has already broken a 1.2-inch daily snowfall record set on May 1, 2005.

But it does not stop there. Zika said snow continues to fall and 6-7 inches is predicted by the end of the day into Thursday.

Drivers should expect low visibility and slippery areas on roads. In addition, the temperature is in the mid-30s, compared with a typical 50-degree weather at the beginning of May.

Heavy snow, blizzard conditions affecting parts of United States, challenging records

Heavy snow and gusty winds are affecting parts of the northern Rockies, northern Plains, and upper Midwest this weekend with blizzard conditions expected in portions of Montana. Accumulating snow is expected as far south as Chicago. Elsewhere, breezy and cooler conditions are forecast for much of the East.

A shortwave impulse tracking across the central plains will sustain a surface low across the Midwest states on Saturday, April 27, 2019, NWS forecaster Hamrick noted.

The majority of the precipitation with this event is expected north of the surface low track from South Dakota to southern Michigan.

NASA declares carbon dioxide is GREENING the Earth… reveals how Green New Death is a DEATH cult that would collapse global ecology

The study, entitled, “Greening of the Earth and its drivers,” used satellite data to track and map the expansion of green plant growth across the globe from 1982 – 2015. Published in 2016, this study found that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide causes “fertilization” of plant life, resulting in a remarkable acceleration of increased “greening” across every Earth continent. As the study abstract explains:

We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area… Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend…

In other words, the planet is getting greener, and we have rising CO2 levels to thank for it, since rising CO2 accounts for about 70% of the increase in planet-wide greening, according to scientists.

Late-April snow to blanket 1,200-mile swath from Montana to Michigan

A late-April storm will put down accumulating snow along a 1,200-mile swath of the north-central United States this weekend with slippery travel possible in cities such as Chicago, Milwaukee and Detroit.

Old Man Winter still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is poised to spread snow from parts of Montana through portions of the Dakotas, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan as the weekend progresses.

New York's "Green New Deal" To Phase Out Red Meat By 50%

New York City's recently-approved "Green New Deal" (not to be confused with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's environmental wish-list) will slash the amount of red meat served in municipally-run facilities by half in order to combat climate change, according to Breitbart's Josh Caplan.

The $14 billion "Green New Deal" will phase out purchases of processed meats in city-run schools, hospitals and correctional facilities by 2040, amid an overall cut in purchases of 50 percent. New York would be the first city in the world to adopt such a policy, and was announced after New York Schools adopted "Meatless Monday" in an effort to encourage the consumption of less meat.

Study: Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal Would Have ‘No Effect’ on Earth’s Climate

A new study published by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) disputes the idea that the Green New Deal would have any effect on the environment, concluding that the impact on the Earth’s climate would be minimal at best.

The environmental pipe dream brought to you by the Democrat party’s rising socialist would abolish fossil fuels, eliminate millions of jobs, cost households $600,000 annually at an overall price tag of $93 trillion, and do NOTHING to stem the tide of climate change.

“Notwithstanding the assertions from GND [Green New Deal] proponents that it is an essential policy to confront purportedly adverse climate phenomena,” the report reads, “the future temperature impacts of the zero-emissions objective would be barely distinguishable from zero.”

MINI-ICE AGE warning as solar minimum hits ALL-TIME HIGH - 'It's a PERFECT STORM!'

THE solar minimum is well and truly here after scientists recorded an all-time high in cosmic rays, meaning Earth could face a ‘mini Ice Age’.

Cold weather to grip WORLD as solar minimum to DEEPEN, NASA says

In 2019, the Sun has been without sunspots for 59 percent of days - a sign that the solar minimum has arrived. The Sun follows cycles of roughly 11 years where it reaches a solar maximum and then a solar minimum. During a solar maximum, the Sun gives off more heat and is littered with sunspots. Less heat in a solar minimum is due to a decrease in magnetic waves.

Fewer magnetic waves equates to the Sun being slightly cooler, and experts are expecting the solar minimum to deepen even further before it gets warmer.

This could mean a slight temperature drop around the planet.

Cosmic forecasting site Space Weather said: “An international panel of researchers led by NASA and NOAA has released a new prediction for the solar cycle: The current solar minimum is going to deepen, potentially reaching a century-class low in the next year or so."

The Green New Deal Will Hit the Poor With Higher Energy Costs

The Green New Deal's goal is to move America to zero carbon emissions in 10 years.

"That's a goal you could only imagine possible if you have no idea how energy is produced," James Meigs, former editor of Popular Mechanics magazine, says in my latest video.

"Renewable is so inconsistent," he adds. "You can't just put in wind turbines and solar panels. You have to build all this infrastructure to connect them with energy consumers."

Because wind doesn't always blow and the sun doesn't always shine, "renewable" energy requires many more transmission lines, and bigger batteries.

Electric Car-Owners Shocked: New Study Confirms EVs Considerably Worse For Climate Than Diesel Cars

The Brussel Times reports that a new German study exposes how electric vehicles will hardly decrease CO2 emissions in Europe over the coming years, as the introduction of electric vehicles won't lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions from highway traffic.

According to the study directed by Christoph Buchal of the University of Cologne, published by the Ifo Institute in Munich last week, electric vehicles have "significantly higher CO2 emissions than diesel cars." That is due to the significant amount of energy used in the mining and processing of lithium, cobalt, and manganese, which are critical raw materials for the production of electric car

Climate Activism: An Ideology in Search of a Justification

In the abstract, peak-oil theory simply makes a series of mathematical claims about the long-term course of a finite or nonrenewable resource’s uses. In the hands of environmentalist activists, it became an instant cause for alarm. Oil’s nonrenewable nature meant that a resource-depletion event was imminent and that the failure to aggressively adopt “clean” fuel alternatives would lead to a catastrophic collapse of the global energy sector and thus the global economy.

These apocalyptic claims were commonplace at the time of the first Earth Day event in 1970, when environmentalists confidently predicted a complete exhaustion of the world’s oil supply by the year 2000. In subsequent years the environmentalist movement en masse adopted the logic of the famously failed Malthusian doomsayer Paul Ehrlich to suggest an imminent death spiral in the oil-based-energy market, setting a deadline for the global conversion away from fossil fuels.

David Attenborough’s BBC show would better have been called “Climate: Change The Facts”

… If you are going to present a film called Climate Change: the Facts the very least you should be doing is, well, presenting the facts. Well here they are, in two of the areas which made up such a hefty part of the film: wildfires and hurricanes. Are wildfires increasing? They are according to Attenborough. One of the scientists who takes part in the programme, Professor Michael Mann of Penn State University, goes as far as to say there has been a “tripling in the extent of wildfires in the Western US”. He is not specific about his evidence for this claim, nor said over what timeframe wildfires are supposed to have trebled, but it is not a fair assessment of the data collected by the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA). This shows no upwards trend in the number of wildfires in the US over the past 30 years.

But then again, go back further, to the 1920s, and you see that both the number of US wildfires and acreage burned in them has plummeted.

PHOTOS: ‘Game of Thrones’ fans, snow artists make the most of unexpected snowfall

Many people across Chicagoland likely did a double-take when they looked out the window Sunday and saw snow falling, in some instances at two inches an hour, at the start of the third week of April.

For fans of the HBO show “Game of Thrones,” the snow seemed perfectly timed to coincide with the debut of its much-anticipated final season Sunday night. In posts to social media, many asked if the snow was a publicity stunt based on the show’s slogan that “Winter is here.”
