Renewable energy ‘simply WON’T WORK’: Top Google engineers

Wind­mills, solar, tidal — all a ‘false hope’, say Stan­ford PhDs

Two highly qual­i­fied Google engi­neers who have spent years study­ing and try­ing to improve renew­able energy tech­nol­ogy have stated quite bluntly that renew­ables will never per­mit the human race to cut CO2 emis­sions to the lev­els demanded by cli­mate activists. What­ever the future holds, it is not a renewables-powered civil­i­sa­tion: such a thing is impossible.

Ross Kon­ing­stein, PhD

Both men are Stan­ford PhDs, Ross Kon­ing­stein hav­ing trained in aero­space engi­neer­ing and David Fork in applied physics. These aren’t guys who fid­dle about with web­sites or data ana­lyt­ics or “tech­nol­ogy” of that sort: they are real engi­neers who under­stand dif­fi­cult maths and physics, and top-bracket even among that dis­tin­guished com­pany. The duo were employed at Google on the RE<C project, which sought to enhance renew­able tech­nol­ogy to the point where it could pro­duce energy more cheaply than coal. [Con­tinue reading]

Population Control via Water Control

Dr. Kate Vandemoer

Dr. Kate Vandemoer

Dr. Kate Van­de­moer out­lines the Fed­eral grab for con­trol of water out West.

One does not need to achieve a very high level of edu­ca­tion to real­ize that water is the bio­log­i­cal basis for all of mankind, and our most valu­able and nec­es­sary resource. In fact, very few peo­ple read­ing this would sur­vive more than a hand­ful of days with­out ade­quate water. Sim­ply put, water is life.

As with any com­mod­ity of lim­ited sup­ply, cor­po­ra­tions, king­pins and gov­ern­ments all maneu­ver into posi­tions of con­trol; often work­ing in con­cert to achieve a quasi-monopoly. Numer­ous exam­ples of this through­out his­tory can be revealed with the proper search terms. Out West, the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment, the State of Mon­tana and the Native Amer­i­can tribes are work­ing to form just such a monop­oly; at the expense, of course, of the cit­i­zens of Mon­tana and sur­round­ing states. What would facil­i­tate this monop­oly? The CSKT Water Com­pact. [Con­tinue reading]

EPA regs to increase Vermonters’ gas and electric bills by $880
