Ek het ‘n boek
Van baie blaaie.
Het aanvangs te vinnig gelees,
Paragrawe oorgeslaan,
Sinne misverstaan.
Ontgogel deur misverstand.

Ek lees nou langsamer,
Blaai teësinnig om,
Ontleed elke paragraaf,
Proe versigtig aan elke woord.

Langtand op pad
Na die laaste bladsy.

64% Gain In Arctic Ice From 2012

Close your eyes to this if you want to remain a believer – faith is required to negate evidence.

Real Science

On September 17, 2012 the extent of 30% concentration ice in the Arctic was 2.49 million km², and this year it was 4.09 km² on September 17. An increase of 64%. The past two years have been among the four highest of the past decade.

Experts say the Arctic has been ice free since 2013, or earlier – and that is is going to kill us all.

Sneaky Redistribution of Wealth

Die Brosjure

Die Brosjure

Hierdie brosjure kom saam met my jongste eiendomsbelasting rekening.

Die Stad Kaapstad betaal 5% van die koste om ‘n sonverwarmer te installeer.

Maar waar kry hulle die geld vandaan? Van die belatingbetalers natuurlik! So, ons almal betaal vir die subsidies wat enkeles ontvang.

Wie is dit wat die subsidies kan opneem? Dis dié van ons wat wat genoeg geld oor het elke maand om vir sulke goed te betaal.

M.a.w. almal, arm mense ingesluit, se geldjies gaan na dié wat reeds welaf genoeg is.

Dieselfde ding, net op groter skaal gebeur met windplase. Welgestelde grondeienaars verdien dermiljoene uit subsidies wat uit ons sukkelaars se elektrisitetsrekeninge gegaps word.

Robin Hood draai om in sy graf.

EU Kettle Logic

Burokrate en Fisika is nie bedmaats nie! Dis asof hulle hier by ons op skool was?

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

UKIP MEP, Roger Helmer has sent in this written question to EU commission in response to their proposals to limit the power of electric kettles.

“I understand that the Commission proposes to introduce measures to limit the power of electric kettles. Is this the case?

Does the Commission have any grasp of the basic physics of boiling a kettle?

Is the Commission aware that so far as the water itself is concerned, it takes just the same energy to boil a litre of water slowly as to boil it quickly?

Is the Commission aware that in boiling it slowly, over a longer time, more waste heat will be lost to the environment through conduction, convection and radiation?

Does the Commission therefore recognise that this proposal will increase electricity consumption, generate more waste heat, and tend to increase emissions, both of CO2 and water vapour?”
