Still happy about relying on windmills and solar, when there's no wind and it's dark at 4 pm, and it's still only mid-autumn, and Gas is maxed out, the 5GW max interconnectors pretty much too, and wood pellet-burning 'Biomass', etc, and Coal is the only reserve, and that just 5GW or so, and we're only running at 43GW demand, with probably 45GW max this evening, and nearer 50GW with a few degrees lower temps in the coming 'cold snaps'?

Madness: http://gridwatch.templar.co.uk/

Even if the 4/5 remaining coal powerstations can do the indicated 8-9GW, that's mighty close to power cut situation.

Any problem at any of these hardly used stations, for around 8-9 months of the year - 'Britain runs completely on Renewables' - or any other of the gas, nuke etc ones, and it's Goodnight Vienna.

No Strictly, footie, The Only Way is Essex etc, will the proles finally take notice of how their country has been deliberately wrecked? And would they do anything about it?

Genuine Climate Emergency, trying to Rebel against Extinction in Greta's homeland:

“25-30 minus,” warns the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI). During both Sunday and Monday, large parts of Sweden will feel “VERY COLD” with snow in some places.

In the border area between eastern and western Svealand, down towards Bohuslän, there can be a certain amount of snow, explains Anette Levin for News24 .

And the farther north you come – the colder it gets. In Norrland temperatures can be expected up to minus 20 degrees. In Norrbotten it can even be 25-30 minus degrees.

COLD TEMPERATURES AND SNOW

Monday also offers a lot of winter weather – both north and in Götaland.
During Monday, the cold will have crept down to northern Göte-land, so you can expect between one and eight minus degrees, says Levin.
In Norrland the temperature is predicted to be between minus five and minus fifteen degrees.
https://nyheter24.se/nyheter/inrikes/935706-smhis-kyliga-besked-nu-kommer-extremvintern-25-30-minus

- just a "Cold Snap". Nothing to see here - genuinely life-threatening conditions, population-culling - what XR, CAGW, 'Climate Change', 'Agenda 21' etc is actually about.

Not to worry, I'm sure it'll heat up - proof of "Global Warming" - as we pass into actual winter in 6 weeks time, at the solstice.

The reason the whole global media and global apparatus - Global Government - is currently shrieking from the rooftops about XR, GW etc, is because they know how cold it is, already, in mid-autumn/mid-spring, in both hemispheres, and with a likely GSM/little Ice Age on the horizon, possibly this winter, hence the stepped-up even more brainwashing for the sheep, to bring them into line, literally, ready to go to slaughter without a bleat.

Us British lap this up - the colder it gets, the more it's proof of CAGW - so you can't win with this doltish, cultish, clinically insane mindset.

99% plus of Brits will happily go to slaughter.

So the Germans have realised again that the UK is dysfunctional and a nightmare to do anything approaching serious business, and so are pulling the plug, literally, on most if not all of 'Npower', having tried to make sense of operating in UK for nearly 3 decades:

https://news.sky.com/story/npower-announces-restructure-that-threatens-4-500-jobs-11873108

What this means is Solihull, Npower's largest office location, with 3 bed semis 'worth' over £0.5m, will actually have an economy not dissimilar to Welsh ex-coal pit towns or North East ex-steel mill towns, but the absolutely brainwashed inhabitants think JLR and Range Rover makes them special, akin to Knightsbridge.

But this isn't a JLR/Solihull problem.

The root of Npower, RWE's, E.ON's problem is the collapse of the real UK economy, over the last 30(actually 40) years, and hence being unable to make a go of selling electricity, in vast amounts, that befitting a first-world, advanced country.

How do I know? How can I prove it?

Take a look at UK's electricity demand - the best indicator of the advancement, industrialisation of an economy.

http://gridwatch.templar.co.uk/

Right now, in the start of another "Cold Snap", still before the actual start of winter, UK is using around 42 GW.

Now look at France's demand:

http://gridwatch.templar.co.uk/france/

Notice anything?

France is using over 1.5 times that of UK.

Yet, in the last 30 years, under the open door, mass migration policy of Thatcher, Major, Blair, Cameron, May and now Spaffer, the UK's real population has gone up by around a third, from around 55m to over 70m, and still rising exponentially higher.

Yet, our electricity demand is flatlining if not falling.

France has a smaller real population, but uses 1.5 times or more.

What's really happened is that in the 40 years since 'free enterprise', heavy industry and even moderate users of energy in UK have collapsed, and the 'millions of new businesses' are actually people working from their front rooms or driving a delivery van.

German utility companies are used to planning and working on the basis of GDP determining electricity consumption, with use/demand going up, in upturns in the business cycle, plus people using more energy as their living standard rises, and they become more wealthy.

In UK, they have finally realised - it took them nearly 30 years - that UK is not a normal country.

It is a neo-feudal country and society, where the majority, up to 90% of its people, are actually living not far off 3rd-world subsistence lives, where typical average usage in a household/slum dwelling/hovel is well under 0.5 kW across the whole day.

The UK went from being the "Sick man of Europe" in the 1970s, with the country as a whole falling behind Germany, France, even Italy, to the brainwashed, actual 'Pauper of the world' today, with the majority of people poorer than anyone, anywhere, due to massive debt, just to 'live', from student, to rent, to mortgage, to car payments, train season tickets etc.

So as the population exploded, due to deliberate massive immigration, and then the birth rate skyrocketing for these 'new arrivals' and succeeding generations, the country's actual output collapsed, as almost all industry disappeared, and GDP, unemployment, inflation etc, were all frigged completely by the state, to not show this third-world-isation of the UK for the majority, vast majority, of its inhabitants.

Stunning, really. Stunning moreso that all this was 'achieved' by the elites without even a minor social disorder, since the '84-85 Coal Strike, nothing even approaching France's Gilets Jaunes.

So the Germans, RWE, E.ON etc, have thrown in the towel, and swallowed their pride - they pride themselves on being good at business, large companies, multi-national etc - and followed the same path as BMW with Rover Group, realising, perhaps, that there's something odd/off in the UK, and one not worth wasting the rest of their lives trying to work out, as it is in fact insane, insanity, that lies at the root of UK's and the British people's problems - that the vast majority of people in Britain actively buy into their own destruction, their livelihoods wiped out by elite psychopathic greed, because they believe one day they will be one of these elites, either through the Lottery, or driving a courier van for 200 hours a week until they are billionaires, or just that they regard the right to be ridiculously rich as the point of life, with culture, conscience, belief in an afterlife, all not relevant or scientifically disproven.

No wonder, then, that Climate Change/CAGW/XR/Climate Emergency/Attenborough-as-a-God etc took root in Britain more than any other country in the world.

There's something about Britons that leaves them wide open to believing fairy tales/Big Lies, if it comes from someone with a plummy accent, who 'went to the right school'.

Scotland? North York Moors? No. Thailand:

https://www.iceagenow.info/snow-in-thailand/

I blame Bjorn Nyland. :grin:

Seems the northern hemisphere wintertime 'cold snaps' are continually missing most of UK and most of North America, whereas most of Asia is being 'globally warmed' with record low temperatures - near East, India, China, Japan, Thailand etc - plus eastern/southern Europe.

Probably just a coincidence, 'a weather anomaly.'

Look what happens with a not very severe 'Cold Snap' and high pressure/low winds over continental western Europe and most of UK:

http://gridwatch.templar.co.uk/

- France/Europe providing/donating diddly squat to UK on the interconnectors, as their windmills aren't moving either, and the sun goes down at 4 pm in January, and it's rather cold, and they still have large-scale, heavy industry, requiring gigawatts of power.

- UK suddenly becomes gas and coal dependent - the coal which is being switched off from April(2020) - maybe +5 deg.C GW will kick in in 2020/21?

- the 6/7 GW of wind in UK is around 500 miles from where it's required - off the coast of Scotland/N.Ireland to London/S.East - so transmission losses alone of around 10%, and the high cost.

- if we get a few degrees colder, and the high pressure spreads to the whole UK, that leaves about 3 GW of coal capacity(total ~7 GW) and a bit of nuke, maybe 1.5 GW, to cover the around 5 GWs of wind lost, and extra around 4 GW of demand, at around 50 GW.

How does that work? It doesn't.

Big users will be rationed - welcome to Third World Britain - and then domestic customers.

Still, I'm sure National Treasures like Sir David Attenborough, the well-known scientist and engineer, and Chris Packham, of XR bent, will have all the answers for a grateful, shivering, blacked out nation, when they phone them in from Mustique or The Seychelles.

I see the bods at Gridwatch/Uni. of Sheffield have resized the Coal contribution - down to 4 powerstations now, and all to close post April:

http://gridwatch.templar.co.uk/

Not an auspicious time to do it - wind in UK, from around 25GW installed capacity, at a cost of probably around £50bn so far to the taxpayers and billpayers, is currently providing a whopping 4% of demand, or less than 2GW.

Gas is maxed out, and then some, and coal doing over 3GW, which is probably around the new maximum, from 3-4 stations, and those being readied/rundown for closure in just a few months.

Thank god it's not cold - the BBC only says 'chilly' - so wear on a cardigan pehaps on those balmy GW'ed evenings, and +5 deg C. is just around the corner, ...any minute now.

No doubt the cost of those 2-3 GWs from France and Belgium on the interconnectors - which is keeping the grid up atm - is enormous - 25p/kWh plus.

What a way to run an 'advanced', 'modern' country - or maybe that's the plan?

Imagine a world where the inhabitants had been told night and day for 30+ years that they were gonna die, worse, far worse, be responsible for killing the planet they live on, for a mass extinction event of its fauna, due essentially to their existence, just as that planet's sun went through its natural cycle, a grand minimum, and the planet's elites had to find a catch-all distraction, an all-consuming emergency, to stop its little people realising they'd been had, to the tune of trillions and all their freedoms. I know preposterous. Wouldn't happen on this planet.


Bit 'chilly' this morning, as the Beeb/Met Office/Media like to call medium to severe frosts in Spring.

Ideally, you'd want an all-consuming diversion to keep people's attention away from this:


If you were the group who had spent almost 40 years prepping the minds of the little people for a 'planet on fire', and taxing them into the trillions to stop it, and telling them now to cease eating meat, and having children, basically to stop their selfish breathing and existence, to save the planet, but knew that what was really happening was the planet/sun was going into a solar minimum, likely a grand one, you'd need a pretty comprehensive distraction to stop those people thinking about the destruction of their livelihoods - all those idiots who fell for planting vines in England for instance - and coming mass, genuine food shortages, and mass starvation, and even the dimmest beginning to think they'd been lied to for years, 24/7, by all the media and govt. bodies, and 'scientific experts' - Attenborough, David Shukman etc - and by the GroupThink abroad in the population that calls any heretic to the people's new religion 'a denier'.

Wonder what that could be?

I don't know what's going on with the climate, but I am more and more worried. Spring frost destroying crops is not exactly a happy headline, even though some may see it as proof, we don't have global warming. We in the West are so used to be able to buy bananas, oranges and strawberries all year round. We don't think about food shortages. But if the crops start failing in large parts of the world, then we can easily experience a food shortage.

What worries me is not so much global warming. Some people seem to think, that it will just be nice and warm, and we won't have to travel to the Mediterranean to bask in the sun during our holiday. The problem is, that the weather is running wild. We have adapted to the climate during centuries and learned how to grow crops and other food. If spring frost destroys the crops, if we have a drought in July, when the crops are supposed to grow, and if we then get a lot of rain in August, when the farmers are supposed to harvest, then we won't have enough food. Not even us privileged westerners.

Here in Denmark, we had the warmest January ever, since we started recording the weather in 1874. For the first time ever, we didn't record freezing weather anywhere in the country during January. In february, we had more rain than ever. Rivers overflowed their banks. Lots of houses including old preserved buildings were more or less destroyed. People had to flee their homes. Restaurants and hotels were flooded. On top of it, we had so much wind blowing in those months, that trees fell over and roofs blew off houses. Tonight I learned in the news, that March has been the sunniest March ever. That is nice of course. But now that we are starting to see spring arriving, the temperatures are dropping with night frost posing a danger to crops and plants in general.

I can't say whether global warming is true or what. None of us know that. But I'm worried that the weather seems to become wilder and wilder. We are breaking one weather record after the other. And it's not only here in Denmark. It's all over the planet. First they have snow here, then it's record breaking hot there, then there is a hurricane in an unusual time and place. If the crops start failing in large areas of the world perhaps several years in a row, then we are in deep trouble.

On top of that, we have this Corona thing. It is more than bad enough in our wealthy western countries with good health cars systems. But what about the third world? It seems India is being hit now. Fortunately they have a few extremely rich families, who should be able to help their people. We all know, that's not going to happen. And what will happen when the virus reaches Africa?
