volledig mee eens…. pseudo intellectuele kwatsch van een leuk uitziend meisje… Misschien als ze wat ouder is dat de wijsheid nog daagt.

“For it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument”

Huilt Clio? Ja, Clio schreit haar ballen uit haar geile slipje!

Niet meer zo ontspannen over je knieën wrijven, Sjonnie, en je ogen wat meer scherp stellen, want anders gaan mensen denken dat de interviewer hasj gerookt heeft. En dat water drinken is natuurlijk ook aanstellerij, al krijg je van wiet wel een droge bek, natuurlijk.

Ik denk dat je niet ouder dan 19 jaar moet zijn én een flinke joint geconsumeerd moet hebben om het zeer uiterst relaxte en lááánge interview te kunnen waarderen dat SjonniedeKwatkwitter had op SteenGijl met Annabel Nanninga die ook zéér ontspannen haar casual brabbelzinnetjes produceert. Vet cool allemaal, maar vooral vermoeiend. Maar het ging over de Vrijheid van Meningsuiting en dat onderwerp ligt me na aan het hart, dus ik…

The Bloom is Quickly Fading for Renewable Energy in America and Europe

The Bloom is Quickly Fading for Renewable Energy in America and Europe

The word on renewables is not much better out of Europe. One recent report showed despite generous support that dwarfs the subsidies given to the wind industry in America, Germany’s wind farms are failing to deliver much power. The country has more than 25,000 turbines with a rated capacity of nearly 40,000 megawatts. However, over the course of 2014 they delivered just 14.8 percent of their rated capacity – or less than 6,000 megawatts, the amount of power one could get from just six coal fired or nuclear power stations. And, of course, unlike the power from the coal power or nuclear power plants, the power delivered by the wind turbines was so volatile and unpredictable that it could not be counted upon to provide baseload power.

 

With numbers like this, it is little wonder why windpower is quickly falling out of favor in Europe. Across the EU green energy subsidy programs have been slashed causing the rate of wind farm installations to plummet. The Financial Times reports new wind installations fell precipitously in much of Europe: by 90 per cent in Denmark; 84 per cent in Spain (Europes largest wind power market) and 75 per cent in Italy. The fact that the decline in new wind farm construction comes as subsidies have been slashed is not a coincident and shows just how “not ready for prime-time” wind power still is despite 40 years of support. Wind still can’t compete on price, and may never be able to compete on reliability with the much abused and criticized electric power staples — coal, natural gas and nuclear.

Our Secret Weapon In the War with IS: Racism

Our Secret Weapon In the War with IS: Racism

Racism isn’t something non colored people do to colored people. Racism is rife amongst all peoples of the world for very simple reasons: we all have the same primate brain

Imagine you are a pre homo sapiens primate on a walk about and you encounter an entity that doesn’t look like you, is it seems capable of attacking you, then you think twice before walking up to it and giving it a kiss.

This ingrained self protective survival method, be wary of strangers, is what lies at the base of racism. All what the intellect of homo sapiens added to this hardwired instinct is a rationale why to be wary.

Depending on the level of sophistication some people can easily overcome this instinct, most can’t. In any case murderous savages such as those in the various Islamic death cults for sure can’t.

Long before ISIS militants beheaded Christians on a Libyan beach last week, Nigeria’s Boko Haram was carrying out similar atrocities 1,500 miles to the south. Now that ISIS is operating in northern Africa, will the Syria-based organization join forces with the continent’s largest Islamist terror group?

Maybe not, say U.S. intelligence officials, and they suggest one obstacle is racism.

“The Arab world is incredibly racist,” explained a U.S. intelligence official. “They don’t see black Africans as equivalent to them.”

ISIS may show “affinity” with Boko Haram, said the official, “but they stop short of allegiance.” Moreover, said the official, while Boko Haram has in the past year released videos to show “affiliation” with groups like ISIS, there’s no evidence of either group sending members to fight with the other. And while Boko Haram has praised ISIS, and shown the ISIS flag in videos, ISIS has not reciprocated.

“There are still questions of the ISIS view of Boko Haram and Nigeria,” said the official. “But Boko Haram does not operate in sync with ISIS. The caliphates are separate.” There was concern last October when Boko Haram declared its caliphate that the two might team up, but there’s no indication that’s happening, said the official.

Wind speed law


Unfortunately this will not stump ‘the energy for nothing’ exponents whose deep seated beliefs overcome all logic and facts. As long as governments pump billions into the wind industry in the mistaken belief that it generates longterm employment no amount of pointing out the obvious will help. But thanks for the clear and simple piece, it at least shows yet another main problem with wind energy.

I decided to show something useful instead of waiting until perfect data is available.

Frequency plot of wind speed over the whole of the UK. The characteristic is logarithmic.

There are data problems, ignore this please[1].

The Met Office in common with all national meteorological services continue to use cup anemometers rather than eg. ultrasonic This is the advice[2] from WMO (World Meteorological Organisation) specifically to maintain continuity of data for climatic purposes since there are significant differences between cup and other types.

Aan Andreas Tirez: de hoofddoek is een nazi-symbool dat ik dagelijks honderden keren onontkoombaar in mijn smoel gewreven krijg

Een moslima met hoofddoek zegt feitelijk tegen alle mannen: Jullie zijn beesten met oncontroleerbare lusten, verkrachters bij de minste geringste aanleiding. Allemaal. Zonder uitzondering. Als zodanig is deze dracht een discriminatoire uiting jegens de meerderheid van de wereldbevolking. En niet eens religieus maar cultureel van nature. Wat moet je als niet verkrachtende, volstrekt in controle van je lusten zijnde man hier nou mee? Zo iemand ga je toch geen sociaal contact mee aan?

TIREZ ANDREASKennen we “Liberales” uit Vlaanderen? Nee? Nou, dan introduceren we die club toch even!

“Liberales is een onafhankelijke denktank binnen de liberale beweging. De leden zien het liberalisme als een progressieve beweging die opkomt voor de vrijheid van het individu, rechtvaardigheid en mensenrechten.” [mijn vet]

Andreas Tirez vond het nodig om op de website van Liberales zijn “liberale” standpunt uit 2009 over de hoofddoek nog eens te herhalen, waarschijnlijk om de katholieke vrijdenker Lieven Boeve te helpen de sociale hogedrukpan intact te houden waarin meisjes zodanig tot de hoofddoek geprest worden dat ze geloven zelf besloten te hebben tot deze Dubbele Jodenster. Ja, dat is toch het einddoel van elk totalitair systeem: dat ze het zelf gaan geloven. Wat zegt u? “De vrijheid van het individu, rechtvaardigheid en mensenrechten!”

Had ik het over een Dubbele Jodenster? En moet ik dat uitleggen? Ach, ik hoef tegenwoordig eigenlijk nooit meer nieuwe…

Should Islam Be Banned for Blasphemy? (hint: yes)

Should Islam Be Banned for Blasphemy? (hint: yes)

Soon after Muslim gunmen killed 12 people at Charlie Hebdo offices, which published satirical caricatures of Muslim prophet Muhammad, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)—the “collective voice of the Muslim world” and second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations—is again renewing calls for the United Nations to criminalize “blasphemy” against Islam, or what it more ecumenically calls, the “defamation of religions.”

Yet the OIC seems to miss one grand irony: if international laws would ban cartoons, books, and films on the basis that they defame Islam, they would also, by logical extension, have to ban the entire religion of Islam itself—the only religion whose core texts actively and unequivocally defame other religions, including by name.

To understand this, consider what “defamation” means. Typical dictionary-definitions include “to blacken another’s reputation” and “false or unjustified injury of the good reputation of another, as by slander or libel.” In Muslim usage, defamation simply means anything that insults or offends Islamic sensibilities.

Islam is the only religion whose core texts actively and unequivocally defame other religions.

However, to gain traction among the international community, the OIC cynically maintains that such laws should protect all religions from defamation, not just Islam (even as Muslim governments ban churches, destroy crucifixes, and burn Bibles). Disingenuous or not, the OIC’s wording suggests that any expression that “slanders” the religious sentiments of others should be banned.

What, then, do we do with Islam’s core religious texts—beginning with the Koran itself— which slanders, denigrates and blackens the reputation of other religions? Consider Christianity alone: Koran 5:73 declares that “Infidels are they who say God is one of three,” a reference to the Christian Trinity; Koran 5:72 says “Infidels are they who say God is the Christ, [Jesus] son of Mary”; and Koran 9:30 complains that “the Christians say the Christ is the son of God … may God’s curse be upon them!”

In the White House, Echoes of Neville Chamberlain

In the White House, Echoes of Neville Chamberlain

By now it should be readily apparent to all concerned parties that the United States, led by Barack Obama, will not resort to the military option to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions nor will he employ economic sanctions. In dealing with the Islamic Republic there are essentially three options and Obama has foreclosed two of them.

Option one favors a trilateral approach involving diplomacy coupled with crippling sanctions and the credible threat of use of force should sanctions fail to persuade the mullahs to change course. This option enjoys bipartisan support in Congress and is favored by many notable policy analysts.

Option two involves immediate military action to destroy Iran’s vast nuclear program. No one doubts that the United States either acting alone or in coordination with Israel can accomplish this task. Nonetheless, few but the most hawkish of hawks believe that this option represents responsible foreign policy.

On the opposite side of the spectrum is option three which involves classic appeasement in the spirit of Neville Chamberlain and it is this approach that is favored by the Obama administration. Thus far, the torturous P5 +1 negotiations with Iran have dragged on endlessly enduring at least two unwarranted extensions all while the Iranians feverishly pursue their nefarious ambitions.
