    Another Global Warming Oops Moment - Orange Punch : The Orange County Register

    Today we have yet another example of what was unintended, but probably could have been seen coming had our government know-it-alls not been blinded by their ideological mission. We call these Global Warming Oops Moments. There’s no shortage of them. “While President Barack Obama is touting clean energy such as wind farms, a group of American scientists are raising alarm bells that wind turbines increase the effects of global warming, as well as killing birds that fall prey to the deadly spinning blades,” says an item from Dallasblog.com.

    It's one giant "oops" moment and has been from the beginning.

    That's been the story with so-called "climate science" from the beginning, hasn't it? It's all "ifs" and "coulds" and "maybes."

    AGW is all bad science. Your post is a classic case of transference. It's uncanny how all posts by warmists suffer from the same psychological issues.

    I would also like to see the study, which the Daily Mail refused to identify by title or otherwise. This is just one reason why the Mail is not a good source for science news, much less a twice-regurgitated excerpt from the Mail. The article may have been referring to this study, which has the correct subject matter and first author, though it was published last year:

    Impacts of wind farms on surface air temperatures

    If so, the Mail and the pundits horrendously misinterpreted the study. The closest the study comes to saying what the Mail claims it says is, referencing another study,

    Needless to say, affecting the downstream surface in no way implies a change in global climate, much less global warming. As far as the study claims, any change in climate is purely local. The study also notes that the changes, which consist of coolness during the day and warmth at night, seem to benefit farmers by keeping their nearby crops safe from overnight frost.

    Wrong altered wind patterns change evaporative conditions which change just about every part of weather.
