Snowstorm hits Southeast, 1 death linked to storm
ATLANTA (AP) — A winter storm made its way across the Southeast on Thursday, dumping snow in states recovering from days of rain, playing a role in at least one fatality, and leaving thousands without power.

Weather warnings and advisories were in effect for sections of Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

It is against my blog policy to provide links to science denialist sites. It would be unethical for me to do that on a regular basis because it would enhance the google juice of pseudoscience. I’ve got children. I want them to grow up in a better world, not the world that Anthony Watts wants them to grow up in. So, no.

Our energy policy is a load of hot air | Columnists | - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express
Fully exploited in the USA [shale gas] has had a revolutionary effect. Energy prices halved, they are now siting back in their homeland entire industries they once outsourced (exported) seeking cheapness. Pollution down. Not one single earth tremor identified as caused by ‘Fracking’ the extraction process.

So is the UK, starved of locally-sourced British owned energy going for it like a Rugby forward on the charge? Certainly not. Havering and dithering as usual. Why? Because it is opposed by Big Oil and Big Wind - the profiteers and subsidy-junkies. Who seem to have our bumbling bureaucrats in their pockets, along with the Lib-Dems, still happy to sabotage what they can.

So we go on pouring billions of your money into subsidies to build windmills that will return a miserable amount of power but create a happy core of greedy millionaires.
