The New Nostradamus of the North: Coal is king in Germany: Record imports of coal despite of Merkel's "progressive" energy transition policy
German coal imports are this year to hit record levels, 51 million tonnes, a 6.5% increase compared with last year. The share of coal in the total electricity production is 45%.

Jennifer Marohasy » Costly Climate Model Just a Big Boy’s Toy
A toy is a game, a gadget, a gizmo that may have no real practical value. But of course it is fun to play with.

They have a lot of fun at the BOM playing with General Circulation Models. These models, run on supercomputers, are essentially about attempting to forecast future and past climate including cyclones, droughts and ice sheets crashing into the Southern Ocean. The super computers are worth tens of millions of dollars and there are over 130, mostly big boys, playing with them from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday at the BOM in Melbourne.

It all happens at considerable expense to the Australian taxpayer and I say they do little more than play, because the output from their favorite model generates mostly nonsense at least when it comes to that most important of all climate variable for Australians – rainfall.
