Zed ranks. Local stuff is very cool, and that’s what it’s really going to take. Hope we’re up to it. JTC Feb 08 2019 at 12:10 am Oh, and “we’re” being released… That’s funny right there “Sam” and all y’all. Swansonic Feb 08 2019 at 12:19 am Zed is there somewhere. Maybe not exactly where they left him? interventor Feb 08 2019 at 12:11 am Maybe Jo/Sam should give’em the cold shoulder, as she leaves. cmblake6 Feb 08 2019 at 12:24 am Indeed, she should absorb anybody she doesn’t already have. So long as the memory doesn’t overload in her memory bank, the more the merrier. Next time, bitches. 😉 Swansonic Feb 08 2019 at 12:23 am Vehicles vandalized…… by who / what? Little doggies? Saucy bull? And the power is fluctuating – better check your windmills; grease them up… TomZ. Feb 08 2019 at 1:46 am Power fluctuations could be Jo draining some power from them. Or it could be some little Jos. Swansonic Feb 08 2019 at 10:47 am Oooh, even more potential fun! Pamela Feb 08 2019 at 12:44 pm You mean reproduction without some idiot’s dick getting froze off. Try explaining that to Worker’s Comp. cmblake6 Feb 08 2019 at 12:26 am Three hots and a cot, what’s not to like? jim Feb 08 2019 at 12:29 am Playing “pick up the soap in the shower” with Otto. John M. Feb 08 2019 at 12:50 am I’d like to see Otto play “pick up the Soap” with Jo/[whoever]. TomZ. Feb 08 2019 at 1:46 am Wouldn’t that be Bubba and not Otto? Swansonic Feb 08 2019 at 12:41 am OT a little – a study came out recently investigating lower-than-expected power out from large windfarms of about 30-40%. One hypothesis is that a windfarm / city buildings disrupts the airflow leaving less wind energy for a downstream windfarm. I’ve been wondering for years what the impact of large windfarms would be on wind speeds. Since the windfarms are removing energy from the wind wouldn’t the rain / snowfall patterns change? More precipitation on the windward side of things since there is less wind energy to get moisture to the leeward side of things? People from Argonne National Labs speculated that the impact would not be measurable due to the large amount of wind energy from which the windfarms were removing a miniscule amount. I didn’t think anyone was even studying this possible effect on weather. I don’t think that the researchers are even looking at weather effects, just wind power generation effects. So much to learn about how nature works, much less how we affect things….. Kafiroon Feb 08 2019 at 1:22 am There is research into that. The conclusion so far was that they caused heating. If I remember right, It was something about causing warmer low level air to mix wih colder upper level air. Sorry, just got back from travel and too tired to find the article. Swansonic Feb 08 2019 at 1:46 am That’d be interesting to read – I’ll have to do more searching…. Thanks! TomZ. Feb 08 2019 at 1:49 am Sounds like the logical conclusion of the research is that large wind farms cause global warming. PaulS Feb 08 2019 at 7:51 am That would be Katastrophic Klimate Khange. 😉 Hmmmm My personal theory is Windturbine Accumulated Resonance. Yes, WAR! All that vibration has to go somewhere, unexplainable earthquakes and other anomalies, you heard it here first. All rights reserved. Redleg Feb 08 2019 at 1:49 am Notionally, a flap of a butterfly’s wing can cause a tornado on the other side of the world, so it is not unreasonable to expect the removal of any energy from the wind flow to have a significant, but unspecified effect. cb Feb 08 2019 at 2:42 am FYI https://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/04/30/supreme-irony-wind-farms-can-cause-atmosphereic-warming-finds-a-new-study/ Swansonic Feb 08 2019 at 10:29 am Thanks! kadaka Feb 08 2019 at 2:44 am Chinese Researchers Claim Wind Resources Are Dwindling “The results show that surface wind speeds were decreasing in the past four decades over most regions in the Northern Hemisphere.” The unicorns aren’t farting as much these days, time to find other types of free energy. PaulS Feb 08 2019 at 7:54 am Where’s Tesla when we need him? No, not the government subsidized jackwag with a company of the same name. Good work if you can get it, I guess. Bill G Feb 08 2019 at 6:14 pm Tesla’s last invention should be the Pie-In-The-Sky dream for the Greens; the power source he claimed to have found that no one would produce because it wouldn’t be profitable. But then, that assumes that the Greens do want the peasants to have a life-style akin to that of the elites. Personal transportation, air conditioning in summer and heat in winter, literacy, … Ryk E Lee Feb 08 2019 at 4:00 am I wrote a letter to a anti-wind farm coalition a few years back, questioning if any body was looking at the Polar Vortex dipping further South due to Wind Farm slowing of the traditional West to to East prevailing wind patterns here in the CONUS. Never heard back. JJ cooper Feb 10 2019 at 9:15 pm Did you really expect to?? JJC Browncoat Feb 08 2019 at 8:10 am Do we really think that man is capable of slowing the wind to such a degree that it will affect the weather? I guessing that slowed winds will not effectively dissipate the results of “farting cows”. Someone better tell Algore and AOC. eon Feb 08 2019 at 8:13 am See “Weather gauge” in naval combat pre-steam era. Sailing men o’war always tried to get upwind of the enemy so as to run before the wind as they came into range in line of battle. A line of battle upwind of an enemy one could at least partly reduce the wind reaching the enemy’s sails, thus drastically reducing their speed and maneuverability. The same effect is seen here in a slightly different mechanism. Either way, whoever’s upwind acts as a wind break on whoever’s downwind. Also, on land, terrain must be taken into account. For instance, in New Mexico, around White Sands, you wouldn’t want a wind farm too close to the east side of the Organ Mountains, as the ridge acts as a huge windbreak and creates a mountain roll swirl on its lee (east) side. Neither of which does wind turbines a bit of good. Wind farm gurus could learn a lesson from the sodbusters of the 19th Century. They were careful about where they put their windmills, because the windmills pumped the water from their wells. A windmill in the wrong place generally meant no water, and a failed farm. clear ether eon Olddog Feb 08 2019 at 8:38 am Swan sonic, I’ve been wondering the same thing about solar farms. They would be moving heat from areas that normally receive it to cities that are already heat islands. This could also change wind patterns, as well as heat distribution over the surrounding area. kadaka Feb 08 2019 at 9:15 am Solar farms generate extra heat where they are, as you can read here, since they’re dark and absorb sunlight but only a small portion becomes electricity, the rest of the energy is released as heat. It’s about the same as dark roof shingles. Since solar farms are built over lighter-colored ground or vegetation, the temperature rise should be noticeable. The extra glare for pilots is not great either. Swansonic Feb 08 2019 at 10:38 am Easily understood. My initial thoughts years ago came about after a visit to New York City. I wondered how much the jet stream changed with the changing of a forested river delta system into the New York Metropolis cluttered with big buildings absorbing heat, dumping into the air with AC systems with multiple zones of burning gasoline, diesel and jet fuel heat. That is a huge heat island where there used to be a large carbon sink. Don’t try to tell me man doesn’t affect the climate. We need to better understand how the Earth’s climate operates and how our activities affect it. We’re a looonnngggg way from that. JTC Feb 08 2019 at 11:40 am No reason-able person would argue that man has no effect on his environment, just that the impact of his existence and survival is but one component of it like myriad others. Elites no doubt understand that but focus on it in order to further their true agenda to control it and us. This is much like their pretense of concern in their use of the various components of society (useful idiots) to buy their own continued power in order to seize and diminish ours. Of course immigration and gun control are their primary targets as it were to that end, but man’s effect -and his very existence- in and on the world is just another part of that. This thread exposes that in their blind ambition they and their attempts at that are an yugely ironic actual contributor to that which they seek to use for their nefarious attempts to obtain and exert control. Control is Power is Money. Always follow the money. None of which is to say that as God’s chosen managers with dominion over all else, that we shouldn’t be concerned with our environment and how to least negatively affect it. But the elites concern for it is completely disingenuous, and in fact they would prefer a population reduced by about 90%, leaving just them to enjoy their perfect world and enough grunts to run it. Delilah T. Feb 08 2019 at 1:45 pm Solar farms also kill off bats and birds that hunt and eat disease-carrying insects. The Audubon Society reported 3.5 million birds died in the Mojave Desert migration route because the solar farm there fried them. Drastic reduction of beneficial species doesn’t matter to Those People, or won’t until they get some of the more nasty diseases from a mosquito bite. 🙂 interventor Feb 08 2019 at 5:28 pm Plus, kills those desert tortoises the government cares about. NotYetInACamp Feb 10 2019 at 12:04 am Removing ranchers like the Bundy’s from desert grazing land reduced the population of those dear desert tortoises by over 75% wherever the greedy land deals occurred. (About 53 0f the about 54 ranchers in their area were removed by federal actions.) Their US Senator was arranging land deals that used the area as natural mitigation. But that removed the stewards from the and, the water rights they tended, and the grass they grew and the cattle that provided the poop for the desert tortoises to eat and thrive on. Can i say poop? OK. Feces. Or scat. Or Pelosis. (that was uncalled for) I do like all the tortoises and believe that people should hold stewardship over the land responbsi9bly and not be greedy people who would do anything for their own control and profit. How often does government tell the truth? Pamela Feb 08 2019 at 5:53 pm I want to know what the rollout of 5G will do to Beneficial Insects and the potential increases in various cancers. Without the pollinators how many food crops are gone and how many millions will die from starvation. NotYetInACamp Feb 10 2019 at 12:06 am Some talk of some areas suffering (experiencng) a ~95+% drop in ground insects. Such from a report on a rain forest in Puerto Rico and another area in the US. It was on the net somewhere. Doggo Feb 08 2019 at 12:27 pm So windfarms cause global warming? Makes as much sense as cow farts, and a lot more direct link than CO2. Pamela Feb 08 2019 at 1:23 pm I guess the end game is take US back to almost Pre-Industrial Revolution standards. After all the Peasantry has been getting uppity. Brad Feb 08 2019 at 6:40 pm The “Butterfly Effect” definitely comes into play in some manner. Punta Gorda Feb 08 2019 at 1:53 am So, what specific charges that warranted apprehension? Greedy lawyers would be wanting a piece of that… eon Feb 08 2019 at 8:18 am As Sheryl Attkisson has found out, they don’t need no stinking charges. They also aren’t required to respond in court; https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2019/02/07/im_suing_the_government_it_has_a_problem_with_that.html That’s what happens when the Rule of Law becomes instead the Law of Rule; We Rule, Therefore the Law Is What We Say It Is. clear ether eon WayneM Feb 08 2019 at 3:30 pm Any bets on whether Attkisson would want to dig into this if it wasn’t herself that’d been targeted for sniffing by the Deep State? Would she feel the same outrage if she was chasing the illicit surveillance of someone like Alex Jones? Bill G Feb 08 2019 at 6:29 pm Not knowing the lady, I can’t say. But I hope so; it is one hell of a story, and it should be all over the media. The New Media, anyways; it’s exactly the type of story the DMC buries for their bosses in the DNC. Toxic Deplorable B Woodman Feb 08 2019 at 8:55 pm SA is one of the few worthy of the appellant “journalist”. She was the first MSM to take the F&F story and try to get it to the masses. She acknowledged her sources in the conservative internet media. She was targeted by the O’Bozo administration for daring to “leave the plantation”, hence the laptop breakin. Too Tall Feb 08 2019 at 3:46 am Tucker and “Godfather.” It’s always nice to have low friends in high places. Unless I miss my guess, Zed and Jo have probably left them a few “calling cards” to remember them by, long after they are gone. GWB Feb 08 2019 at 7:34 am Methinks this is not the end of the arc……… Delilah T. Feb 08 2019 at 10:16 am There has to be a surprise at the end of this trip. 🙂 (I still think J. Edgar in there somewhere would have been nice, but that’s just me.) Mark Havener Feb 08 2019 at 10:24 am These Stasi-like cowards (and the politicians who control them) are like sharks. Sharks are the real “chickens of the sea.” They do not bother you unless you act like wounded food. They circle you, then bump you to see what you’re going to do (and to see if you’re tasty). Their skin is rough enough to scrape you up so they can smell what you taste like. To chase off an inquisitive shark, when they come to bump/taste you, a good hard hit in the nose, eyes, gills or other sensitive area will convince them you’re not worth it and they will depart. The only exception to this is if they’re in large groups and/or feeding frenzy, which shouldn’t happen unless you’ve chummed the waters first. (I used to be a SCUBA instructor) I’d say those stormtroopers got a good, swift kick in the family jewels. MasterDiver Feb 08 2019 at 3:32 pm Remember, If a shark comes at you, you can straight-arm him in the nose…twice );-D WayneM Feb 08 2019 at 3:33 pm Being released on your own recognizance mean something different down in the Excited States? Here in Canuckistan, it means accusations are forwarded for approval by the prosecutors but not yet formalized. In other words, you might be served a summons later if the prosecutor believes the evidence is compelling. interventor Feb 08 2019 at 6:35 pm Much the same, one is released without paying bail or a promissory note, merely one’s signature, Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
