Electricity in The Netherlands: Wind Turbines Increase Fuel Consumption

Wind developments of various sizes in the Netherlands cause extra fuel consumption instead of fuel saving, when compared to electricity production with modern high-efficiency gas turbines only.



Regulation Without Reason

Lord Christopher Monckton shows that even using the IPCC's extreme projections, the cost of abating global warming as cost-ineffectively as Environment Canada's proposed regulations would be at least 8 to 18 times the cost of damage from climate inaction, and 40 times the inaction cost on the basis of real temperature trends assuming all 20th century temperature change was caused by CO2. Therefore, the regulations should be abandoned.



FoS Response to Environment Canada's CO2 Emissions Reduction Plan

Friends of Science responds to Environment Canada's plan to restrict carbon dioxide from coal-fired electric generation plants at a cost to Canadians of $8.2 billion. FoS presents strong evidence that the climate sensitivity of CO2 emissions is one-sixth of the IPCC estimate. We show that a small warming effect of greenhouse gas emissions, about 0.5 C in 200 years, causes a social benefit, rather than a social cost. CO2 emissions also increase crop yields.



Biofuel Policies Increase Death and Disease

A study by Dr. Indur Goklany (2011) concluded that biofuel policies caused 192,000 excess deaths from malnutrition and poverty in the developing world in 2010. Increased biofuel production driven by government policy to retard climate change has contributed to increases in global food prices, causing increased malnutrition and poverty.



Global Warming Fraud Creates Third World Food Crisis

A "mad rush to biofuels" is causing a third world food supply crisis and mass starvation. A whopping 6.5 percent of the world's grain has been stripped from the global food supply to produce methanol for cars. Governments provide subsidies to produce ethanol in the mistaken belief that CO2 will cause serious climate change. But satellite data shows that CO2 has little or no effect on the out-going radiation to space, so it is not significant cause of climate change.
