The Rossi E-cat machine has been tested and came up positive – twice. A paper has been written on the results – but all are not happy (such as Lubos Motl). I'm sure Tony Haynes will inform us of all the updates on cold fusion at the forthcoming Study Group meeting (see latest SIS journal for details) but EM Smith appears to be quite excited by it all – go to http://chiefio.wordpress.com/2013/05/23/e-cat-found-to-work-by-independe… … He thinks he might hear the fat lady singing in the background.
Meanwhile, wind turbines are having a few problems – go to http://stopthesethings.com/2013/05/23/canadian-health-professionals-spea… .. where it is all to do with the ear – hear, hear. At http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2013/05/22/green-energy-the-worm-turns/ which is in fact a repost from http://rogerhelmermep.wordpress.com/2013/05/22/green-energy-the-worm-turns/ … a sort of parody of the poor majority subsidising the well-off minority, sort of like skimming the cream off the gold top (milk from Jersey cows) or the peasants helping out the laird with a few pennies here and there, a little in the singular but a multitude in the plural (weighing down the pockets on the left hand side of the tweed jacket). To see all this in graph(ic) digest, images speak louder than mere waffle, go http://bishop-hill.net/blog/2013/5/23/electricity-prices.html
Somebody is 'havin' a larf' or blowing a short one at http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/05/23/great-moments-in-activist-climate-… … which is a sort of warning that a lot of people do see co2 as generating heat in a glass covered environment, as they are not being fed the actual science, just the propaganda. In this situation, the good doctor is one of the peddlers of CAGW PR so it is all rather fitting – caught in the web of one's own missive (and the sceptic, tongue in cheek, even allowed an escape bolt that was airily brushed aside). Nice one by the trickster – though the general activist will be completely unaware of the bloomer as they are simply not fed anything but the proscribed dietary fodder. The role of co2 in real greenhouses is discussed quite objectively at www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/crops/facts/00-077.htm where you might learn how to optimise the size of your tomatoes and the length of your cucumbers.
