And Trump forseta vi vld Mbl.is? Skortir lesskilning frttaritara?!

ess er spurt hr vegna efstu greinar ar ntt: „Andstyggilegu“ konurnar hans Trump"(sic). ar er notkun Trumps orinu "nasty" lg t sem svo, a hann kalli 6 konur "andstyggilegar". En g tel rangt tt!

Ori nasty hefur msar merkingar. T.d. er a nota um lykt og um vistarverur: a nasty room, a nasty smell ("geslegur, andstyggilegur, vibjslegur" er ingin Ensk-slenskri orabk Arnar og rlygs). getur a 2. lagi veri nota, merkingunni klr, gefelldur, salegur, um hugarfar, orbrag ea ritverk (a nasty mind, nasty language, nasty literature). 3. lagi um nttruviburi og slys, merkingunni slmur, alvarlegur (a nasty storm/cold/rain; a nasty accident. 4. lagi um rug ml vifangs ea torveld: a nasty question; a nasty business (leiindaml) og 5. og sasta lagi merkingunni illgjarn, illkvittinn ea illkvittnislegur: make a nasty remark; a nasty trick, okkabrag. (Allt skv. smu orabk.)

͠ummlum Trumps er nokku ljst, a ar kemur merkingarsamhengi nr. 1 hr ofar ekki vi sgu, heldur ekki nr. 3, naumast nr. 4, en einna helzt nr. 2 og 5.

Frleitt tel g, a hann hafi almennt veri a lsa konunum sex sem andstyggilegum sem slkum, heldur er nokku ljst af samhenginu, ar sem a kemur fram, a hann er yfirleitt a tala um ummli eirra ea orbrag. a t.d. vi umMeghan Markle, hertogaynjuna af Sussex, sem hafi sagtTrump "fullan kvenhaturs", en au or mega vel teljastrtin ea illkvittnisleg.

Mette Frederiksen, forstisrherra Danmerkur, neitai a ra viTrump um mgulega slu Grnlandi, og brst hann vi eim skilaboum me v a kalla au "nasty" ea illkvittin (fremur en andstyggileg).

VegnayfirlsingaHillary Clinton um a "hn myndi hkka skatta launahstu til a leggja meira f flagslegan stuning" brst Trump illa vi me v a kalla hana such a nasty woman, a tlegg g sem ekki almennt andstyggilega, heldur sem illgirnislega neyta fris til a skattleggja vissan jflagshp. sagi hann ingkonunaHarris hafa veri virkilega"nasty" (illskeytta ea illkvittnislega) spurningu sinni til Barrs, dmsmlarherra alrkisins; en ekki var a almenn fordming hans henni sem andstyggilegri manneskju!

Eins var umNancy Pelosi, forseta fulltradeildar Bandarkjaings, egar hn brst "nasty og hefnigjrn" vi nlegum ummlum forsetans um rjr konur af blnduum uppruna. Mbl.is segir ar reyndar ranglegafr "ummlum forsetans ar sem hann sagi fjrum ingmnnum Demkrataflokksins a „fara heim,“" en a geri hann ekki, heldur hvatti hann r til a leita til sns upprunalands, skoa ar standi (murlegt efnahags- og rttltismlum) og koma svo til baka, klyfjaar betri ekkingu en r ur hfu og hafandi ar me stutil a meta betur bandarskt samflagen r geru fram a v.

En ljt og illkvittin ummli vinstri manna og "frjlslyndra" um Trump forseta gtu hins vegar fyllt heilu bkurnar, ef ekki bkasfn, og hafa margir fari geyst ofurmlum, og dyggilega er vitna "frjlslyndum" fjlmilum, jafnvel daglega!

Gone with the Wind: Inefficiency and Hazardous Nature of Wind Energy Impedes Renewable Crusade

Myndaniurstaa fyrir windmills

Wind energy is infinite, clean, a friend of climate, and the future of our energy sector.That is the green gospel we hear from renewable-obsessed environmentalists and politicians every day.

If wind energy is what they claim it is, why are the economic powerhouses of the world increasingly turning toward fossil fuels and nuclear, not toward wind?If wind is affordable and efficient, as they claim, why does it need subsidies to flourish?

The answers to these questions reveal that wind energy is not what it is portrayed to be.

Intermittent Generation and Hyper-Sensitiveness to Weather

It is a well known fact that wind energy is intermittent — i.e., it can generate stable electricity only when the wind speed is at an optimum level.This is known as rated wind speed, which is around 26–30 miles per hour, or 12–14 meters per second.A little slower, and the generation is inefficient.A little faster, and turbines risk getting damaged.

Unfortunately, average wind speeds are not stable, so neither is the energy generated.Wind changes direction and speed minute by minute forvarious reasons.Furthermore, geographical regions have different wind-generating capabilitiesduring different seasons.Some turbines remain non-operational for months when average wind speeds are lower than 10 miles per hour.

Energy generation can also beaffected by cold weatherand storms.This was the case earlier this year when the cold weather from a polar vortexaffected wind operation in Americas Midwest, impacting theonly season when wind energy generation is optimumthere.Besides rendering them incapable of generating electricity, the cold weather alsodamages the turbines and other parts.

Canada, a country familiar with cold weather limitations of wind, estimates that cold weather accounts for aloss of $85 million USD annually.The loss is attributed to three main factors: accumulation of ice on wind turbine blades, resulting in reduced power output and increased rotor loads; cold weather shutdown to prevent equipment failure; and limited or reduced access for maintenance activities.

The Cost: Loss of Money, Increased Power Prices, and Blackouts

Despite the seasonal variation and no assurance of a stable wind speed, the wind industry has managed to grow rapidly, thanks to the restrictive climate change policies that favor renewables against fossil fuels.

As a result of this blind love for wind energy, countries have lost a lot of money invested into the wind sector.The U.S. Energy Information Agencysannual energy outlookstates that wind (and solar) energy contributed a mere 3 percent of total energy consumption in the U.S. last year, despite consuming a cumulative$50 billion in subsidizes.

Moreover, some territories like Scotlandcompensate wind energy companiesif electricity generated exceeds the demand.The government makes up for the financial loss by increasing the electricity bills of consumers.

Furthermore, the increased cost of generation and transmission has resulted inincreased power prices.Environmental commentatorMichael Shellenberger noticedthat electricity prices have risen dramatically in countries that rely heavily on wind: "Electricity prices increased by 51 percent in Germany between 2006 and 2016 (wind and solar) and over 100 percent in Denmark since 1995 (mostly wind)."

Thisrenewable-driven sharp risein electricity prices is also observed innumerous states in the U.S.(especially California) that made heavy investments in wind and solar.

The highly seasonal and intermittent nature of renewable electricity means that some countries also run the risk of a complete energy blackout when wind fails.The 2016 blackout in Australia caused by wind energy failure is a classic example.

Hazardous to Birds, Humans, and the Environment

Besides being inefficient and expensive, wind energy has also been found to be hazardous during its manufacturing phase and operational phase.

A generator for a high-end wind turbine requires as much as 4,400 pounds of neodymium-based permanent magnet material.When neodymium is produced, thecarcinogenic and radioactive waste is dumped into lakes, making both the water and the surrounding air toxic.It is estimated that seven million tons of waste a year are dumped into a single lake in China, which is the largest producer of neodymium.

Wind turbines are thelargest killers of birdlife globally.They have a special liking for raptors and are infamous foradversely affectingmany endangered species.An operational wind turbine is a certified bird-killer.

Wind turbine accidents are also becoming increasingly common.In the U.K. alone,hundreds of accidents are reportedevery year.Globally, thousands ofwind structural collapses and related accidentsoccur annually.

All these factors make wind energy untenable.Even in the best operating seasons, wind has no competitive edge over conventional energy sources.

Some countries are already moving away from wind.Poland aimsto scrap all its operational wind factories by 2035.(Theyre not farms, by the way.Farms grow plants and animals.)China hasrefused to approve further wind projectsdue to their inefficiency and higher costs.

Aside from isolated local applications not yet served by major electric grids, wind has little future in a world moving toward technological finesse in energy generation technologies.Wind makes us rely on a resource that is highly volatile and not under our control, thereby making it unsustainable no matter our advances in turbine technology.

Any hopes of a wind energy–powered utopian future are gone with the wind, literally.The wind sector functions solely to feed the pride of renewable crusaders, at taxpayers and ratepayers expense, and has been a burden to the world that is pushing toward energy development.
