Variety of the Week: 595,000 BPD (barrels per day)

THIS WEEK:
By Ken Haapala, President, Science and Environmental Coverage Mission (SEPP)

Scope: Because the Russian troops and gear maneuvered to invade Ukraine, the Biden White Home countered with a “Local weather Science Roundtable on Countering ‘Delayism’ and Speaking the Urgency of Local weather Motion” mentioned beneath. The Biden Administration’s obsession with local weather was verified by former US Secretary of State and present particular local weather envoy John Kerry who:

“warned in an interview this week about ‘huge emissions penalties’ from a Russian warfare towards Ukraine, which he additionally stated could be a distraction from work on local weather change. However, he added, ‘I hope President Putin will assist us to remain on monitor with respect to what we have to do for the local weather.’”

Little question the Biden Administration has Putin quivering in concern of the results of his actions. A difficulty stays: Will the primary invasion of a central European nation since World Warfare II delay the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Local weather Change (IPCC) deliberate propaganda marketing campaign on the supposed risks of carbon dioxide world warming? The images of Russian tanks invading Ukraine are a stark reminder that bodily sciences depend upon bodily proof, not imagined “proof” ensuing from local weather fashions.

Ron Clutz posted the video and textual content of an interview by Local weather Realism (Germany) of John Christy on data-based local weather science. And primarily based on bodily proof, Roger Pielke Jr. has an essay on developments in catastrophe threat. David Whitehouse warns us that developments in hurricane frequencies could also be longer than the present warming interval. All countering the false claims of the local weather institution which has deserted the necessity for correcting of errors in science for it to advance.

Jennifer Marohasy has an attention-grabbing essay explaining why many alarming local weather research can’t be replicated. Articles by members of the Chinese language Academy of Sciences are offering attention-grabbing counters to the nonsense being printed by Western Academies. A latest one makes use of the IPCC’s excessive claims of the extent of warming to discover whether or not temperature improve alone, with out the advantages of added carbon dioxide, would trigger flora to die.

Final week’s TWTW didn’t totally clarify the idea behind its use of the Variety of the Week and several other readers commented on it. The reasoning can be defined beneath.

Over the course of this week, SEPP can be posting on its web page essays by Howard Hayden on Primary Local weather Physics. Warning, fundamental physics means all-inclusive physics, not essentially easy physics, and positively not “made-up physics.” So, the essays will not be appropriate for John Kerry, Al Gore, and different political “leaders” in local weather science.

*****************

White Home Propaganda: In accordance with a White Home press launch:

“The top of the White Home Workplace of Science and Expertise Coverage (OSTP) and Deputy Assistant to the President Dr. Alondra Nelson applauded the roundtable individuals for offering data which is able to assist to tell and speed up federal local weather motion, and cited their work for example of the worth of mixing social science with bodily science:”

“‘That is deeply vital to us, as a result of, as you realize, the Biden-Harris Administration’s agenda on local weather change is historic. We rejoined the Paris Settlement on Day One, and we’ve been again on the desk internationally — main the world to extend our collective ambition, motion, and innovation over the subsequent decade. We’ve additionally set daring targets for the USA: to chop U.S. emissions in half by the top of the last decade, to succeed in 100% clear electrical energy by 2035, and to succeed in net-zero emissions by 2050. And we’re making unprecedented investments in clear power and local weather resilience, the biggest in U.S. historical past, to construct a greater America.

Now, given the realities of local weather change and world warming — together with the rigor and ‘soundness of the science, and the growing proof of its impacts — one could possibly be tempted to ask, ‘what’s taken so lengthy?’ That brings us to a different actuality, which this group is aware of higher than most: that there have been for many years, and nonetheless are, forces arrayed towards the reason for local weather motion — operating the gamut from self-interest and short-term considering, to deliberate disinformation campaigns which might be as insidious as they’re invidious.’” [Boldface added.]

These main the assault on scientists and others who insist that bodily science is constructed on precise bodily proof, not hypothesis in mathematical fashions, included White Home OSTP Deputy Director for Local weather and Atmosphere Dr. Jane Lubchenco who led the roundtable. Previously Administrator of NOAA below the Obama Administration, Lubchenco so lowered the requirements of that company that it continues to base projections of sea stage rise on local weather fashions reasonably than precise bodily measurements.

“In closing remarks, White Home Senior Advisor Neera Tanden stated, ‘It’s clear that a wide range of particular pursuits have had a vested curiosity in sowing doubt on local weather change and feeding denialism and delay. We have to confront that actuality. Nonetheless, regardless of this organized marketing campaign, a powerful majority of the nation needs local weather motion as a result of they perceive the results of inaction.’”

The 5 audio system have been:

Tony Leiserowitz, Founder and Director of the Yale Program on Local weather Communication, Senior Analysis Scientist on the Yale College of the Atmosphere, began the dialog by sharing information about public perceptions of local weather change, how they’ve modified, and why.”

“Andrea Dutton, Professor of Geoscience from the College of Wisconsin, summarized proof for among the dangers of delay in mild of the predictable impacts of local weather change over the subsequent three to 5 a long time, together with some much less predictable impacts and potential tipping factors.”

“Gernot Wagner, New York College Related Medical Professor and Medical Affiliate Professor of Environmental Research and Public Service steered the dialogue into the very actual financial prices related to delaying local weather motion.

“‘From an financial standpoint, it’s exactly the dangers and uncertainties that improve the urgency for motion. What we all know for certain is dangerous, what we don’t is probably a lot worse.’

“Dan Abbasi, former authorities and civil society local weather communicator, now with Douglass Winthrop Advisors, shared his experiences on efficient methods to counter arguments for delay and classes discovered.

“‘We’re dedicated to 1 foot of sea stage rise by 2050, however we will nonetheless keep on the low finish of two to 7 toes by 2100 if we act. So, we have to make that fork within the street extra seen and remind People of the can-do spirit they’ve at all times dropped at challenges like this and must once more – from enterprise innovators to residents holding their elected officers extra accountable.’

“Marshall Shepherd, College of Georgia Distinguished Professor of Geography and Atmospheric Sciences and previous President of American Meteorological Society centered on overcoming arguments for delay via communication with completely different audiences.

“‘Doom and gloom options don’t do effectively. Most People don’t see scientists like us daily – they see the scientists on their TV, their meteorologists, speaking about kitchen desk points.  We have now to keep in mind that good messengers come from inside a group.’”

After such an array of people that use rhetoric as if it have been bodily proof is there any marvel why John Kerry considers the Russian invasion of the Ukraine is a larger risk to a global local weather settlement that it’s to the civil liberties of the Ukrainian individuals?

See hyperlinks below Defending the Orthodoxy.

*****************

Propaganda in Motion: The above quote about John Kerry comes from an editorial within the Wall Avenue Journal, “John Kerry’s Ukraine Emissions, He frets that Russian Brutality will distract from local weather change.” After the introduction, the editorial states:

“What’s overheated right here is Mr. Kerry’s mind. His feedback got here earlier than Vladimir Putin started Thursday’s huge assault on Ukraine. However the BBC says the interview was taped this week, and the alarms about Mr. Putin’s impending assault have been ringing loudly. Mr. Kerry was operating Foggy Backside in 2014 when Mr. Putin invaded Crimea. How has he didn’t internalize that Mr. Putin is a nasty actor motivated by energy and Russian revanchism?

“Mr. Kerry advised the BBC that he hopes Mr. Putin realizes Northern Russia is thawing, ‘and his infrastructure is in danger, and the individuals of Russia are in danger.’ We’ll wait till you cease laughing. Mr. Putin deserves to be made a pariah. Western leaders like Mr. Kerry shouldn’t be questioning whether or not a well mannered tea in Moscow would possibly induce him to barely decrease subsequent 12 months’s oil manufacturing when he can enrich the Kremlin by promoting it for $100 a barrel.

“Mr. Kerry’s defenders—assuming they exist—would possibly say he’s merely fulfilling his function as President Biden’s local weather envoy. And Mr. Kerry did specific to the BBC his considerations about ‘the individuals of Ukraine,’ in addition to the precept of utilizing pressure to change boundaries.

“However Mr. Kerry’s feedback aren’t a gaffe. They reveal the Biden Administration’s obsession with local weather, and with punishing fossil-fuel manufacturing, which has made the U.S. and Europe susceptible to Mr. Putin’s power blackmail. The local weather foyer has made Mr. Putin extra highly effective. Each time Mr. Kerry visits Moscow, the boys within the Kremlin should suppose it’s Christmas.”

It’s troublesome to seek out phrases to explain an administration so out of contact with bodily actuality. Maybe Kerry no extra accepts photographs from satellites of Russian troop actions than he accepts photographs from satellites of the greening of the earth from carbon dioxide and measurements exhibiting that atmospheric warming isn’t harmful?

*****************

Bodily Science in Motion: In a well timed submit, Ron Clutz offers the textual content and video of an interview of John Christy by the Local weather Realism group in Germany. The bodily proof introduced by the pinnacle of the Earth System Science Heart of the College of Alabama in Huntsville is predicated on complete measurements of temperature developments by satellites. It’s systematically ignored by scientists supporting the IPCC and taking part within the Biden Administration’s show of ignorance. Maybe scientists claiming to grasp local weather change who ignore atmospheric measurements must be referred to as half-scientists.

John Christy offers a little bit of historical past by stating:

Round 1988 or so there was plenty of info popping out stating that the globe was warming quickly, and congressional hearings have been held. However we knew that these information have been primarily based upon floor stations which have been fairly sparse and never very effectively calibrated. And my colleague Roy Spencer being a satellite tv for pc knowledgeable, we have been in a position to take information from NOAA satellites that orbit the earth from pole to pole. They see all the earth and take a deep layer of the ambiance and get the temperature of that reasonably than one thing good on the floor. We truly have been in a position to measure the temperature of all the troposphere from the floor to about 10 kilometers in altitude. That’s the majority of the ambiance, so if you realize the temperature of that, you’ll know if there actually is a change in what’s occurring.  We started that research in 1989 and printed in 1990 and are nonetheless carrying on with satellites right this moment.

In discussing radiosonde balloon information, which is to confirm satellite tv for pc information, Christy states:

“Oh, climate balloons can do one thing satellites can’t. Climate balloons take exact temperature and humidity and wind readings at very discrete ranges. Satellites see huge layers, and so if you wish to get the fantastic decision within the vertical, you do want balloons. So, we’ll proceed to have balloon information.

“CR [interviewer]:  So how does it work with balloons in sensible phrases? How typically are they launched and the way huge a community do you may have for individuals who launch it?

“JC: Properly after all balloons are solely launched the place individuals dwell and in order that’s going to be at greatest a couple of islands out within the oceans and varied locations on the continents. United States and Europe and China have plenty of balloon information however many of the remainder of the continents don’t. So, we do have sort of a sparse community of balloons and that’s just a little downside. So, in evaluating with satellites, we take what the satellite tv for pc sees at that very same level the place the balloon was launched. And so, we’re in a position to do an actual direct comparability between the 2.

Though initially, Christy and Spencer received awards for his or her pioneering work, the local weather institution ignores their work. Their work doesn’t assist a local weather alarm or disaster. See hyperlinks below Difficult the Orthodoxy.

*****************

The Decline Impact: In discussing why most printed research exaggerate the results of a attainable decreasing of ocean alkalinity (the ill-named ocean acidification) Jennifer Marohasy writes:

“My colleague Peter Ridd describes the state of affairs:

“’This downside with exaggeration of threats applies to many areas of science and has a reputation: The Decline Impact.

“’The Decline Impact goes like this: an early report, often attracting enormous media curiosity, predicts some type of disaster. However when observe up work is completed, often with much better experimental process and much larger numbers of samples, the unique report seems to be unsuitable.’”

The essay goes on to level out that the majority research on altering ocean chemistry across the Nice Barrier Reef are unsuitable.

*****************

World Much less Harmful? In discussing the discount in catastrophe dangers, Roger Pielke Jr. brings up the Sendai Framework for Catastrophe Danger Discount. The targets of the framework are:

“a) Considerably cut back world catastrophe mortality by 2030, aiming to decrease the typical per 100,000 world mortality price within the decade 2020–2030 in comparison with the interval 2005–2015.

(b) Considerably cut back the variety of affected individuals globally by 2030, aiming to decrease the typical world determine per 100,000 within the decade 2020–2030 in comparison with the interval 2005–2015.

(c) Scale back direct catastrophe financial loss in relation to world gross home product (GDP) by 2030”

This appears to be a constructive step by a UN entity in decreasing human struggling, primarily based on bodily proof reasonably than hypothesis.

David Whitehouse of Web Zero Watch has a provocative essay on why we shouldn’t be misled by the latest discount in extreme hurricanes hitting the US. He writes:

“Hurricanes, like different excessive occasions, range on timescales longer than the latest spell of worldwide warming. Whereas some ponder the implications some are ready for the rise in hurricane frequency. Others are certain it’s already occurred. The controversy may be described as unsettled.”

He appears to be like at analysis at Hine’s Gap, a blue gap on Cal Sal Financial institution within the Bahamian Archipelago and finds:

Hine’s Gap information 16 intense storms per century from 1850 to 2016, however there are three durations from 1505 to 1530, 1570 to 1620, and 1710 to 1875 with over twice as many intense storms per century.

These energetic durations are additionally present in different reconstructions from the Bahamian Archipelago and Florida Keys, the place the impact appears extra pronounced. Hine’s Gap gives information on weaker and extra distal storms and gives unprecedented perception into modifications in hurricane exercise inside the pre-industrial local weather system. Its 170-year report exhibits many extra hurricanes than seen in latest a long time.

Warming Making the Earth Greener? The journal Advances in Atmospheric Sciences is “sponsored by the Chinese language Committee for Worldwide Affiliation of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS), the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at Chinese language Academy of Sciences and Chinese language Meteorological Society.” It printed an uncommon article utilizing the second model of the Chinese language Academy of Sciences (CAS) Earth System Mannequin (CAS-ESM2): “Modifications in World Vegetation Distribution and Carbon Fluxes in Response to World Warming: Simulated Outcomes from IAP-DGVM in CAS-ESM2” The summary states:

“We carried out two units of simulations, a present-day simulation and a future simulation, which have been compelled by the present-day local weather throughout 1981–2000 and the long run local weather throughout 2081–2100, respectively, as derived from RCP8.5 outputs in CMIP5. CO2 focus is stored fixed in all simulations to isolate CO2-fertilization results.”

The analysis signifies that opposite to the claims of the IPCC and its followers, however utilizing the intense warming claimed by the IPCC (below RCP8.5) even with out contemplating the advantages of accelerating CO2 for flora, the supposed warming is not going to be a harmful state of affairs for flora on earth. If the analysis holds up, it illustrates one other false declare by the IPCC and its followers, together with the Biden Administration. See hyperlinks below Difficult the Orthodoxy.

Additions and Corrections: In final week’s TWTW $1289/kWh v. $0.1059/kWh have been used as variety of the week. Readers appropriately identified that was not a correct comparability. The primary quantity was the capital price of developing battery storage at Moss Touchdown, California. The second was common retail value of electrical energy within the US. The evaluation by TWTW was not full.

If we multiply the typical retail value of electrical energy per hour by 8760 hours in a 12 months, we get the typical retail price of electrical energy to be $927.70 per 12 months. This contains the capital prices and working prices, and revenue of these producing electrical energy on the grid, in addition to transmission prices, distribution prices, overhead prices and income for entities concerned. To make the numbers extra comparable, the typical gross value for storage in Moss Touchdown is $16,760 / kWh. The annual price is dependent upon how lengthy they final and their deterioration price, which is unknown.

Because the main provider of other electrical energy to the California ISO is PV Photo voltaic, the hours of the day the solar doesn’t generate electrical energy are vital.

Having adopted photo voltaic era as posted by California ISO, TWTW checked out era and storage necessities for a photo voltaic system that might present around-the-clock energy. There may be days on finish when sunshine is weak, and winter days are shorter than summer season days. For instance, in late February the system gives 80% of rated capability energy for less than about 8 hours. To deal with only a single day, the photo voltaic system must produce not less than 3 times the typical every day energy, and the storage capability must be over two-thirds of someday’s power.  To deal with simply two days (a vibrant day adopted by one cloudy day) the photo voltaic panels must generate over 6 instances as a lot energy as the typical consumption, and the storage system must maintain 2-2/3 day’s power.  Furthermore, the batteries have very brief lives below circumstances of both quick charging/discharging or being run all the way down to near-dead standing (utilizing the complete capability).

Briefly, the amortized price per kWh per 12 months of storage calculated above must be multiplied by maybe 5 to 10, relying on the place the photo voltaic system exists.  The huge necessities of the photo voltaic system have gotten obvious.

As to the price of batteries coming down, proper now the price decline in EV batteries is barely holding with inflation of seven.5%. See Article # 2 and http://www.caiso.com/todaysoutlook/pages/supply.aspx

*****************

Variety of the Week: 595,000 BPD (barrels per day). In accordance with Robert Rapier writing in Forbes:

“As of late 2021, the U.S. was importing 8.5 million BPD of crude oil from all international locations. Canada was our prime provider, sending the U.S. 4.5 million BPD. (Having safe oil provides from shut allies highlights the significance of the Keystone XL Pipeline growth). Mexico was second, at 700,000 BPD, after which Russia at 595,000 BPD. Saudi Arabia was our 4th largest provider at 555,000 BPD.”

Many US refineries have been designed for heavy crude from Venezuela. Because the insurance policies of presidency of Venezuela have been destroying the oil business in Venezuela, the refineries within the US shifted to different sources. We don’t want heavy crude from Russia, we will get it from Canada and the Gulf. However for various ideological causes, the insurance policies of the Biden Administration are intent on destroying the US oil and fuel industries, benefiting Russia.

2. Why All These EV-Battery ‘Breakthroughs’ You Hear About Aren’t Breaking By way of

Within the superheated marketplace for batteries, promising lab developments typically get overhyped by startups. ‘Liar, liar, battery provider.’

By Christopher Mims, WSJ, Feb 26, 2022

https://www.wsj.com/articles/why-all-those-ev-battery-breakthroughs-you-hear-about-arent-breaking-through-11645851613?mod=business_lead_pos10

TWTW Abstract: The article begins:

“Sort the phrases ‘battery’ and ‘breakthrough’ into your search engine of alternative, and also you’ll encounter web page after web page of hyperlinks. They embrace breathless information articles and lofty pronouncements from battery startups.

And but, based on scientists, engineers, startup founders and analysts, using the phrase ‘breakthrough” within the context of battery know-how is deceptive at greatest. Claims that the most recent analysis discovering or startup launch will bear fruit within the close to future are virtually at all times nonsense, they are saying.

“’You don’t must be within the area lengthy to listen to the phrase ‘Liar, liar, battery provider,’ says Charlotte Hamilton, chief government and co-founder of battery startup Conamix. The corporate was based in 2014 and is pursuing know-how that’s being funded by enterprise capitalists and IARPA, a analysis arm of the U.S. intelligence group.

“Batteries have gotten ever extra crucial to every day life. Their efficiency dictates how typically individuals must recharge their smartwatch or cellphone and are central to overcoming range-anxiety felt by drivers embracing electrical vehicles. Energy storage is also crucial to the rising demand for renewable power. All that has supercharged demand for batteries, turning the business into one of many hottest areas for traders.

“Enterprise capitalists final 12 months poured virtually $18 billion globally into startups that assist the transition to electrical autos, together with batteries and lithium mining, based on PitchBook. In August, for instance, China-based EV battery maker Svolt netted $1.6 billion in a single funding spherical.

“Given what’s at stake, it’s straightforward to chalk up exaggerated claims about new battery breakthroughs to the tech business’s propensity for hyperbole and grandstanding. A typical instance: Researchers invent a tweak to a sort of battery that has lengthy proven promise however has by no means come near commercialization. That will get spun into claims that an electrical automobile with a 2,000-mile vary is inside attain.”

After giving examples that its troublesome to lift capital with out exaggeration, the article states:

“Once we began Tesla in 2003, the batteries have been simply adequate, however what we had seen was that they bought higher at about 7% to eight% a 12 months, and had for a very long time,” says Marc Tarpenning, a co-founder of the corporate. “It’s been 19 years, and we nonetheless haven’t had a step change in battery capability—it simply ticks alongside at 7% to eight% per 12 months.” [Boldface added.]

“The explanations progress has been extra evolutionary than revolutionary are myriad, however they boil all the way down to the inherent complexity of high-capacity batteries. It’s straightforward to take them with no consideration, seeing how they’re in virtually each gizmo we purchase these days. However on the molecular stage, what goes on inside the typical lithium-ion battery is a posh cascade of chemical reactions that—and that is the actually powerful half—unfold a technique when the cell is charged, do the reverse when it’s discharged, and should repeat the method numerous instances.

“To recharge an iPhone is to unscramble the proverbial egg of its battery. This course of isn’t good and is the first cause the capability of even the very best batteries degrades over time.

After discussing the big price of battery analysis, the article concludes:

“The results of these lengthy growth cycles is that, even when battery tech ‘breakthroughs’ lastly make it to market, they may simply quantity to the subsequent, incremental improve within the capability of current battery packs, which proceed to get higher on a regular basis anyway, says Mr. Tarpenning: By the point they lastly get these issues into manufacturing, it could possibly be, ‘Oh, it’s simply one other 8% enchancment; have a look at that.’”
