A must read and I agree the grid is likely to fail. Most if not all the reserve capacity has been shut down and solar and wind are incapable of reliable grid level power. the current EPA initiatives guarantees grid failure if not this year then very very soon.

Governments are running huge deficits, but still spend billions on “climate research” especially trying to model the effect of the atmosphere and its trace of carbon dioxide on surface temperature. 580 more words
Spot on I agree 100% with the writer. But I would make one addition and that is we must stop the assault on carbon based fuels to eliminate CO2. However, this does not mean that the real pollutants and fly ash should be ignored and that is where we should be working at the global level. Forget CO2 its a requirement for all life and levels three times where we are now would be beneficial to crop growth.

Even a High School grad can see that something doesn't make sense! All this crazy theory does is make the citizens distrust the government and the scientists whom they use to trust but not any more --- they have now been added to the group of people to watch closely! If the scientists don't wake up and speak out there are going to get all their funding cut off and they will be out of jobs!

Last month, a Government scientist predicted that the number of days here on which the maximum tempertaure exceeds 100 degrees might just climb from one day a year, on average, to 12 days a year by the year 2050…
Actually there is not much that Hansen predicted that has come true or even close to being true.
