STT’s Smörgåsbord: A Selection from the Archive

Posted: December 31, 2014 by tallbloke in solar system dynamics

A great resource for people against the wind farm blight. Well done STT.


smorgasbord Just made for sharing.

STT is the site that the wind industry and its parasites just love to hate.

STT kicked into action on 26 December 2012: Boxing Day 2014 marked 2 years of giving the beleaguered wind industry and its dwindling band of parasites and spruikers hell.

We’ve clocked over 640,000 views and given our loyal readers 827 posts – which spell out – in clear and simple terms – the economic and environmental nonsense that is wind power – and the harm caused to communities around the world by giant fans.

And, we keep picking up dedicated followers – 10,000 so far, from all corners of the globe, including a bunch of canny Scots, Canadians, Americans, English, Welsh, Irish, Cornish, Danes, Germans, Greeks and plenty from Downunder.

We’ve gone back through the archive and put together a veritable Smörgåsbord – just perfect for sharing – with links to…

    Happy New Year!
    Stuart and I are working on another post today. After that I’ll be ringing the changes with a 2015 preview post.

    Solar activity in 2014 was good, SIDC (International Sunspot count) ended year just under 80 and it looks as SC24 may not be done yet.

    On personal note, some 10 years ago I extrapolated the past SSN records (see formula), and came with SC24 max at ~ 80. I never expected to get that close (NASA’s Dr. Hathaway at the time was talking of 200 but about a year or two later Dr. S predicted 70, which looks good, though a bit on the low side).

    On the other hand the 2014 annual CET was warmest since records begun in 1659 at 10.93C
    ……… Dec… Annual
    2012… 4.8… 9.72
    2013… 6.3… 9.56
    2014… 5.2… 10.93

    That looks a bit like David Cameron on drums at 10 seconds. All a bit before his time though, I guess.

    Vukcevic polar vortex anomalies occur due to sudden changes in activity. They cause extreme weather in the south of Asia, Europe and America.

    I think it’s nearing the end of the cycle.

  9. ren says:

    Of course in North America. This winter, the snow is falling in Southern California.
    Another decline in solar activity will cause another wave in the stratosphere.
    Smoothed data may not always reflect reality. Magnetic activity in this cycle is low.

  10. ren says:

    Snow in Sicily. The temperature dropped to -7 degrees C.

  11. ren says:

    I would recommend observation the pace of freezing Lake Sperior.

  12. ren says:

    Vukcevic I have written before about underwater volcanoes and biomass on WUWT (CO2 data).
    Some of my comments is eliminated. Therefore there I will not be posted.

  13. ren says:

    The current temperature in the USA.

  14. ren says:

    Current distribution of ozone.

    Cold wave and frost in Algeria: remote villages, there are dead and wounded.
    Snow algeriaL’ondata frost and heavy snowfall that hit these days the Kabylie of Algeria claimed the lives of six people and injuring another 20. According to the press of Algiers are 17 isolated villages with many roads cut off. 15 are instead the homes collapsed due to the snow and the army ‘already’ intervened in the area to help the local population where there are power outages.
    A village in eastern Algeria and ‘isolated for five days due to heavy snowfall affecting the area. According to reports from the Algerian newspaper “El Khabar”, the villagers of Amara, in the province of Oran, have requested the intervention of the army after the road that connects the capital with the eastern Algerian Tlemecen and ‘still closed. The fear and ‘today may burst accidents after the local population threatened revolt. In recent days there are already ‘held sit-in spontaneous, blockades and protests over the collapse of a building that caused the evacuation of six families.

    The temperature at a height of about 27 km.

    Unusual peak of neutrons.

  18. ren says:

    East of the Rockies will experience below seasonal temperatures as air masses that originated in Siberia cross over the North Pole before plunging south into Canada. The cold air crossing the open waters of the Great Lakes will produce narrow bands of lake effect snow, with dangerous travel conditions in the traditional snowbelt regions south and east of the lakes.
