Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

....If you had a temperature reading from the Shetlands, and another from Jersey, could you use them to derive an accurate temperature in Leek ? ...because that is the way some “data points” are established for the global data set ! They could do that and probably get a fairly good approximation, p...

You can spin the presentation of numbers either way,..but at the end 100/135/150 ppm ..( why did i know you would chew on that detail like a puppy with a toy ??)... 135ppm is exactly that... 135 ppm...135 part per million ..or in dumbed down relative scale 0.015% of the atmosphere !

Note that CATO Institute guy in the Fox video above doesn't claim it to be a hoax, but he claims it to be not as bad as most governments proclaim it to be. He is advocating for using Russian computer model, which demonstrates that skies actually aren't falling. That so-called Russian model is just ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

That graph is from 2015. Texas wind was 9.1% in 2014, 12.6% in 2016, 14.8% in 2017. . When I checked my calendar this morning, it was 2019. They just completed a major transmission line from West Texas in late 2017 that is facilitating a faster ramp-up of wind use, at least here in central Texas. A...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Texas wind is just about keeping up with growth. Solar is a very small amount. Gas is the only thing that is displacing coal due to super cheap supplies from new fraking technology. . . https://gailtheactuary.files.wordpress.com/2016/08/texas-electricity-generated-equals-consumption.png . .

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Sure - Texas. It has more wind and solar than any other state - and yet its power prices are below average. Is natural gas really cheap in Texas? . I'm from San Antonio Texas. Last year our utility, CPS Energy, got 22% of its power from wind and solar, 18% from nuclear, and we also shut down two of...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

I did say that the known 2015-2017 GISS data is distorted by a known cause and should be excluded from your calculation. Dropping that data from the end of the time series is simple...unlike removing data from the middle of a series. Funny how you deniers want to throw out the 2015-2017 El Nino yea...

Re: gas price thread

I have no idea what the gas price is in Central Texas. I started riding my bike (regular bike, not my ebike) to work most days. I filled my truck a month ago and it is still sitting near full. It could go to $10 a gallon for all I care. In the meantime, I've dropped 10 lbs and am in the best shape I...

Gotta love that hillhater dude. Always with the negative vibes. While he is beating out the constant refrain of how it can't be done, we are here doing it. Closing 3 out of 4 coal plants (2 this year and one in 2030) and increasing renewables (almost entirely wind and solar) to 50 percent of the por...
