World’s Biggest Marketer of World’s Worst Greenhouse Gas to Hire 1,000 Americans — by NormanB ("Deviations from the Norm")
Disinformation Marches On! Don’t fall for the Solar-Wind Scam!
Here’s one of many links about today’s story:
Yahoo’s AP headline page is reporting this as good news right now. Maybe they’re lying. They certainly aren’t telling the whole truth. The whole truth would include reporting how damaging to world climate this development is. Maybe AP/Yahoo personnel are just terrible reporters. Maybe they’re maniacs who want everyone dead. Maybe they’ve just been bribed. Whatever reason they may give for celebrating this horrible news, they aren’t being good or honest.
Sulfur Hexafluoride’s (SF6′s) Global Warming Potential (GWP) is 34,500. That means it heats up the Earth 34,500 times as bad as Carbon Dioxide (CO2) does. It is twice as strong as the next worst Greenhouse Gas, Nitrogen Trifluoride (NF3), which has a GWP of 17,900. SF6′s Atmospheric Lifetime is 3,200 years, officially. But some scientists believe it stays in our air many times that long. Contrast it with CO2, which is only a tiny fraction (less than 0.003%) as bad, and the only GHG we know how to resequester from the atmosphere.
SF6 is a dielectric medium which insulates ultra-high-voltage Switchgear: Transformers and Circuit Breakers. 8,000 to 10,000 tons of it is manufactured annually, primarily for this usage.
The Danish company Vestas is the world’s leading marketer of Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6), the strongest/worst Greenhouse Gas. It is also the world’s largest marketer of Wind Farms. According to US Government accounting, one-quarter of the SF6 manufactured leaks into the atmosphere. That’s about two million pounds of leakage a year, set to rapidly increase exponentially, if Vestas and the apparently pro-Global-Warming Obama Administration get their way.
The 80 million plus pounds of SF6 already in our air are equivalent to two-and-three-quarter quadrillion pounds of CO2 – well over a trillion tons of Carbon Dioxide. Anyone who wants to produce even one more gram of it is working against our best interests. Why would someone do this? (For possible answers, refer to the first paragraph after the link, above.)
Anyone (AP or President Obama, for instance) telling you that Wind Farms help fight Global Warming is lying or sadly misinformed. And someone that misinformed about SF6 should absolutely NOT be telling us or the world anything about such a dangerous gas he obviiously hasn’t researched enough. Vestas, AP, Yahoo and Obama purport to be trying to help us, but unfortunately the opposite is true.
One of SF6′s powerful byproducts (Sulfuryl Fluoride: SO2F2) is the GHG that is increasing second-fastest in our air (after NF3, which is used to make solar panels. NF3′s Atmospheric Lifetime is 740 years.) One must wonder if Vestas paid for all that glowing gloating "good news" propaganda during the Copenhagen Climate Conference telling us how great it will be for Greenland when the polar ice cap is gone.
As currently planned, the so called "Smart Grid" is Stupid!
