Analysis: Less Than 1% Of Energy Storage Needed For Wind And Solar Actually Exists
Without large-scale energy storage, the power grid needs demand for energy to exactly match supply to function. Power demand is relatively predictable, and conventional power plans, like nuclear plants and natural gas, can adjust output accordingly. Solar and wind power, however, can’t easily adjust output. They also provide power unpredictably relative to conventional power sources, and this generally doesn’t coincide with the times when power is most needed. Peak energy demand also occurs in the evenings, when solar power is going offline. This means that without about 150 times more capacity to store power for later use, wind and solar simply won’t work.
Denmark: Muslim gangs in street mass brawl
On Friday night, large fights with baseball bats and muscle dogs took place in the center of the Danish city of Haderslev.
Two groups of 30 to 40 Muslim men came to fight – and it did not go quietly.
– It is our impression that those involved chased each other in the streets, says police duty officer, Ole Aamann, to Ekstra Bladet. One group comes, according to the duty officer, from another county.
From another country! Imagine that!
East Coast states want to tax drivers’ travel, not their gas
Officials would stitch together the policies and technologies needed to count the miles driven by 50 recruits from each of the four states, including state legislators, transportation officials or other willing guinea pigs. They would send out “faux invoices” monthly. And they would collect the data that legislatures — and the driving public — would require to decide if the change makes sense.
Fukushima Radiation is Still so Bad It “Kills” Robots That Go Near It
As soon as Tepco’s robots, co-designed with Toshiba, get close to Reactor 3, their circuitry gets destroyed by the radiation. The robots are designed to “swim” in the radiated pools where the radioactive fuel rods are located, to search for and recover them.
This is the same company, mind you, which “accidentally” used radiation monitoring equipment which maxed out at 100mSv when the radiation was 18 times higher – nobody was concerned that the reading was stuck at 100 for really long periods of time, apparently.

Al Qaeda to Jihadis: ‘Target White Americans, Avoid Minorities
The publication, “Inspire guide: Orlando operation,” which seeks to capitalize on the terror attack carried out by gunman Omar Mateen who pledged allegiance to ISIS, plainly encourages extremists to attack Americans.
While Mateen chose to target what the guide refers to as a “homosexual nightclub,” noting that killing gay people is “the most binding duty and closer to human nature,” it suggests to “avoid targeting places and crowds where minorities are generally found in America,” because “the federal government will be the one taking full responsibility.”
Instead, the guide advises jihadis to target “areas where the Anglo-Saxon community is generally concentrated. This class of the American community is the majority and it is the one that is in the American leadership.”
Whoopsie – 70% Of British Parliament Petition Signatures Demanding Another EU Referendum Don’t Live In The U.K.
The petition is being pushed by disgruntled left-wing activists who voted to “REMAIN” in the European Union and lost the original referendum by over 1.3 million votes to the larger majority who wanted to LEAVE.
However, enterprising internet researchers have discovered most of the actual signatures for the second referendum are from people who do not live in the United Kingdom.
Where the Hell is the Orlando Jihadist’s Missing Wife?
Am I the only one bothered by the fact that the Orlando jihadist’s wife is a missing, AWOL, gone girl?
Where the hell is Noor Salman? Can we hold a sit-in at the FBI until someone finds her?
The keystone cops in Washington admit they lost track of her last week. So what are they doing to hunt her down? Playing Marco Polo in the pool with their eyes closed?
A Socialist Les Miserables in Venezuela
A mob of starving people advanced on the presidential palace chanting, “We want food”. They were met by soldiers and police dispatched by the tyrant from his lavish palace decorated opulently with a golden sun, giant rock crystal mirrors, sparkling chandeliers and towering oil portraits.
The scene wasn’t 19th century France, but 21st century Venezuela.
And if you are wondering why you haven’t seen it on the news, it’s because Venezuela is a Socialist disaster area that was once being used as a model by the left. Now it’s a place where the vast majority of people can’t afford basic food staples and a third are down to two or fewer meals a day.
CAIR: Supporters of Gun Control Bill Are Anti-Muslim
“We oppose the Terrorist Firearms Prevention Act of 2016 because it appears to limit the ban on firearms purchases to American Muslims…”
“It would seem the Senate is willing to only apply constitutional limitations on the American Muslim community, which is disproportionately impacted by federal watch lists.”
All Our Children Are Now FBI Terrorism Suspects
In July 2015, I reported on and analyzed the FBI’sCommunities Against Terrorism Program and concluded that it made every adult citizen a terrorism suspect. In January 2016, the FBI announced that it wants to make every high school teacher, administrator and student in America a spy to report to it or local State police suspicious words or activity by any teenager attending our schools. The FBI was not satisfied with its 2012 Communities Against Terrorism Program which asks our neighbors to read any of 25 widely circulated posters and then to report us if we act in certain suspicious ways. Now the FBI has widened its net to over 15 million teenagers in our high schools.
As I explained previously, the dangerous speech which the FBI wanted our neighbors to report included, for example, (1) posting anti-government or environmental slogans, banners, or signs that imply violence; (2) spraying anti-government graffiti; (3) downloading material of an extreme or radical nature with violent themes, or preoccupation with press coverage of terrorist attacks; (4) making unusual anti‑U.S. comments; or (5) making extreme racist or religious statements coupled with sentiments which appear to condone violence. As can be seen from this list of overbroad, vague and legally protected activities or speech which the FBI claims are red flags for terrorism, the FBI has little concern for our Bill of Rights, such as the right to speak freely or to read what we want.
New Barnard College curriculum to teach its female students ‘how to think’
Coming this fall, one of the most prestigious private women’s liberal arts colleges in the nation will launch a “forward-looking” curriculum that reduces their language requirement as it introduces a framework emphasizing social justice themes, among other topics and changes.
The new curriculum at the New York City-based Barnard College, called “Foundations,” aims to reteach its students “how to think” by having them take courses within six new so-called “modes of thinking,” according to a video touting the framework.
