What Happened To Fake Hurricane Humberto? | Real Science
NOAA Fish Hurricane Humberto magically appeared a few minutes before breaking the record for the latest first hurricane, and disappeared almost as quickly.

What a surprise.
THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds global potential solar energy is 4-10 times less than previously thought
A new paper published in Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews finds the potential electric power that could be generated from solar sources is 4 to 10 times less than previously estimated in the scientific literature [including estimates of the IPCC].
THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New study finds electric vehicles are the worst polluters in US, China, India
"A joint American-Chinese research report (Shuguang, Ji et. al: Electric Vehicles in China: Emissions and Health Impacts) proves that vehicles powered by electricity from coal-fired power stations result in more soot emissions per passenger kilometre than cars powered by petrol and diesel. Compared with petrol and diesel powered vehicles, electric vehicles therefore turn out to be the worst polluters in large countries like China, India and the US. Other critics highlight vehicle manufacture, where batteries also have a climate-related cost. Anders Hammer Strømman and his colleagues at NTNU have, for example, discovered that the building of an electric car causes about twice as much greenhouse gases to be emitted as during the construction of a petrol- or diesel-powered vehicle."

Irrelevant. Electric cars are for letting the owners show that they care more than anyone else does. Their purpose is social.
