@Tallbloke's Talkshop: A Perfect Storm of Cosmic Rays

Origi­nally posted on Spacewea­ther.com : April 23, 2019: Ten years ago, NASA reported a “perfect storm of cosmic rays.” During the year 2009, radiation peppering Earth from deep space reached a 50-​year high, regist­ering levels never before seen during the Space Age. It’s about to happen again. Ground-​based neutron monitors and high-​altitude cosmic ray balloons…

@Tallbloke's Talkshop: The Cult of Greta Thunberg

It actually makes sense that Ms Thunberg – a wildly celeb­rated 16-​year-​old Swede who founded the climate-​strike movement for schoo­lkids – should sound cultish. Because climate-​change alarmism is becoming ever stranger, borde­rline relig­ious, obsessed with doomsday prophe­cies. Consider Extinc­tion…

@Jo Nova: Another socialist boom and bust in solar in Victoria

Behold, the Victorian Govt are proving yet again that Soviet-​style electr­icity manag­ement can crush lives, hopes and wallets. The free market is never as cruel and destru­ctive as one run on “good intent­ions” or the desire to win virtue-​signaling fashion parades.

The invisible hand of the market was replaced with Daniel Andrews whimsy. This might work if he was smarter than the collec­tive…
