At last - somebody who has crunched the numbers on what it will take to achieve all the legal targets that have been set world-wide to keep "global warming" within the magical 1.5oC, even assuming that that's what we need to do.
Can it be done?
"Current renewable energy systems generally have a lower Energy Returned on Energy Invested ratios (ERoEI) than current fossil fuel-based systems. They may not be productive enough to replace fossil fuels. As such, they may not be the energy foundation for the next industrial era, but a steppingstone to some other kind of energy generation system not yet identified"
How can we do it?
"This is actually a mining problem"
"There is no other source for those metals"
"The idea of being managed from a central point is almost never going to...
Rebel News delves deep into the recent troubles in la Belle France, providing a more nuanced glimpse into the sentiments that are actually driving the recent events.
Journalism is not dead, it's just hiding in unofficial places, where I suppose it has always had to be if it is to be truly independent.

The AIER notes some of the circumstances that led to George Washington taking up arms against the British.
As always, government overreach was behind it - pluck the goose too hard and it will ultimately turn on you. I guess this was before the government had worked out that they need to at least mount a pretence that they are on the side of the people whose finance they need in order to pursue their grand plans ... they just needed to learn the hard way - but learn they eventually did.
It's interesting because many of the monetary tricks that we see today were in play then too.
Hope Sussex was founded to support those parents who wanted to take their children out of the public and state education systems, those who were prepared to do what had to be done to bring up their own children for themselves in accord with their own beliefs and principles.
Clearly the Universe has smiled upon their efforts.

Michael Senger writing for the Brownstone Institute investigates.
Mind you, he is commenting on the performance of one Matt Hancock, so it may be a bit one-sided - but are the contributions from all the protagonists both official and 'non-official but expert' all being give weight?

Mahyar Tousi reminds us that the current troubles in France may not be unrelated by some to the concept of the religious wars of old.
That's not to say that they are or that they are not, just that it is likely that some will see it that way.
From my perspective, a conversion achieved by force is not a conversion at all, it is a subjugation.
Force is an open admission that persuasion doesn't work.
Those who seek to convert and spread their religion by coercion rather than by persuasion do not respect the right of anybody to make up their own minds for themselves, and the result is top-down control. It is the direct antithesis of a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
OK, so a true bottom-up government of the people has yet to be established anywhere, but the principles established in Magna Carta and the American Constitution probably go some...
So who could possibly pull off such a feat? I guess there's only one candidate...

Mahyar Tousi investigates the banking shutdown of Nigel Farage, and how "the narrative" is being pushed out.
I hope he has an alternative bank lined up...
Shutting down a bank account is an extremely serious matter in the modern day and age. Almost everybody needs access to banking, and existing on a cash-only basis is next to impossible for anybody employed by a corporation or government entity. One might think therefore that such action is wholly disproportionate in most circumstances.

In case you may have been hibernating under a stone somewhere and haven't picked this up, I thought I might cover the latest good news from on high.
The undead EU have now teamed up with the undead WHO to bring us the undead idea of the undead digital vaccine passport that will miraculously free all those undead who agree to the WHO's terms and conditions

I never had the time or inclination to delve into the intricacies of communist-socialist-fascist-neo-con internecine warfare, but after reading this magnum opus I have come to a better understanding of the words "dialectic" and "cybernetics". I'm not sure that this makes me a wiser person, but it highlights the tendency of elites everywhere to invent a jargon that only the initiates understand, and thereby keeps everyone else out of the loop.
Canadian historian Matt Ehret is a veritable walking encyclopedia of historical knowledge and yet somehow seems to remain a well-grounded human person, a feat that I suspect eluded most of the characters whose progress he has studied.
In this article he takes us on a ride through about the last 150 years right up to Prigozhin's recent...
Dr David Kelly was outed as a "source" for a BBC report (yes you read that right - how times change) that created doubt about the "dodgy" WMD dossier relied upon by Prime Minister Blair that led to the Iraq war.
He was later found dead, ruled a suicide, a verdict disputed by many.
"... there is no possibility that at an inquest a verdict other than suicide would be returned"
Britain subsequently went to war.
So that's it, right?
But who was the Chief Microbiologist at Porton Down?
Dr Steven Greer has made a name for himself over the years investigating the alien phenomena that have over the years graced our newspapers and more recently the internet, with varying degrees of lurid sensationalism.
Whether we believe in aliens or not, we might admit that the idea of a fake alien invasion would likely be the scam of the year decade century millenium all time.
Would we put it past our Military Industrial Political Complex?
We featured this video last year, but as the current attempt to impose a world government under the unaccountable UN seems to be encountering unprecedented public opposition, a reminder may be timely.

Oxford City Council should pay attention. Their reworking of Broad Street in furtherance of their Net Zero ambitions that we should all get out of out motor transport (and what exactly?) doesn't inspire J Sorel:
"The new sitting area... isn’t a paved-over section of its own, but is instead grafted straight onto the tarmac itself – this is not an attempt to build something, but to deface something else"
"The purpose of this place isn’t for people to sit, but simply to obstruct the street"
"The ... bollards are irregular in shape and irregularly placed, forming a jagged line....
Readers of this site will know that I don't necessarily accept that the Covid virus exists. After all, if it did exist, why bother to produce a fake test?
Of course it might be real, but still impotent to create any kind of pandemic.
Then there are those who believe that the whole science of virology may be a scam (a position with which I would have little trouble concurring after these last years).
But Eugyppius writing for the Daily Sceptic brings some new thought-provoking theory to the argument, which even if not exactly correct in all the convoluted Covid circumstances, does bring fresh thinking to the fore - a rare achievement in these polarised times.
And yes, he does seem to make a lot of sense.
The Good Law Project has caved.
Henceforth it will only pursue the cases that the Government-Judiciary-Cabal permit.
That is my interpretation and I'm sure that there are those who would disagree, so please make up your own mind as to whether we still have the rule of law in our benighted country.
There was a time in the not so distant past when the government were indeed taken to task in the highest courts in the land over their handling of Brexit, but perhaps there are projects and projects... or litigants and litigants.
What is a terrorist anyway?
In the minds of most, the word would I imagine conjure images of someone who is likely to plan instigate engage in or otherwise contribute to acts of violence or violent insurrection, with the objective of spreading terror.
Vanessa does seem a most unlikely terrorist to me.
Vanessa Beeley, independent journalist often featuring on UK Column reports, describes the opaque and apparently unconstitutional powers that have led various people including herself to being detained searched and having possessions confiscated, apparently without any recourse to law.
Or is immigration control seriously out of control?
We may have to try harder to keep up - Norway has now joined Sweden in rejecting unreliable energy from "renewables" but unlike Sweden is reverting to oil and gas.
Well, I suppose they have to keep the lights on somehow.
Who will be the next to break from the ranks of the green man?
Net Zero Watch publishes a paper which analyses the code behind NASA's Model E Climate simulation.
We have written about the relationship between computer modelling and science before. That article was occasioned by the failure of Prof Ferguson's Covid modelling, but at the end of the day any computer model is simply a computer program written in order to simulate a specific system according to the understanding of the modeller. That understanding may or may not be based on science - or more specifically, on the scientific method.
Models may be simple or they may be extremely complex, but of itself, complexity does not equate to "science"!
So here's a surprise -
Colchester City Council to be more precise.
Concerned residents make a straightforward case to the Council - take control of your own opinions, don't just unquestioningly accept what you're being told.
In truth it's a criticism that could apply to any of us, on any subject, but when you are a representative of the people and you want to push policies that are not necessarily to the advantage of the people, you need to be very sure of your ground.
