Wind farms can contribute to global warming
« on: 10 October 2018, 14:12:23 »

High densities can contribute up to 0.25oC to global warming and up to 1oC at the centre of large wind farm areas.

Can I suggest that you read the report more carefully?

It says "If enough wind turbines to generate all of America' energy (0.46 TW) were installed in America it would warm America by about 0.24 deg Celsius on average".

First, that's a lot of wind turbines.

Second, it's a local effect, not a global effect.

If we want to see the global effcet then, to a first approximation, America covers about 9.8 million square kilometers.  The earth is about 510 million square kilometers.

So, the average global effect would be about 0.24 x 9.8/510 = 0.005 deg C.  That's pretty trivial.

You also need to understand the difference between 0.25oC, which you use incorrectly; and 0.25 degrees C, which the report uses correctly, as they are completely different things.

0.25oC is a temperature which is equal to just over 32oF or about 273K. 

0.25 degrees C is a temperature difference which is about 0.14 degrees F or 0.25K.

I was talking to someone about climate change yesterday in the park. I commented on how warm it was for 9th October. Out of nowhere, she launched into a tirade about how people in low lying countries would suffer greatly due to rising sea levels. I said "That's all very well, but my gas bill for September was the lowest I can remember". She was not amused.  ;D

I think you'll find that's a "local effect". :y

Though obviously, with wind turbines, you need other sources online and generating for when the wind stops.  And thats precisely why the things should have zero subsidy.

At least it was only the 'g' he got wrong. He could have put wind farts, now that would have been funny.
