Here is my prediction of increasing deaths in the next 20 years: If Germany closes all of their coal-fired power plants in the next 19 years, there will be lots of human deaths as a direct result of burning LESS coal.

As I said, flooding mortality fell a lot when earthen dams were largely abandoned, and again with bans in some locales on building on flood plains. If you really don't think that fatalities from climate change are on the rise again, then nothing is going to convince you otherwise. I've seen how vociferously you deny global warming, and have no interest in arguing what most people (and scientists especially) consider to be established facts.

If I don't believe your completely unsupported word over the International Disaster Database, then nothing is going to convince me?

You have a completely warped view of what constitutes "evidence" or "proof".

I don't question the figures you cited. You want to use them, selectively, for a purpose not in the organization's mission. You go right ahead and think that building dams from concrete has nothing to do with a decrease in flood deaths. I'm done. You get the last word - even if it's a distortion.

I don't know why it took me so long, but you are now in my NULL list. I just don't have time for AGW denialists.

More "evidence" for AGW, I suppose?

Again, here is how much temporal variation there is in Germany's wind generation system:

If Germany cannot find some way to bridge the low periods in that system, and without the coal- and gas-fired plants that currently backs up their grid, their system will simply collapse.

The believers who have not been formally educated in green power generation will continue to insist that wind turbines and solar power will replace all fossile and fissile fuel power.

The above looks like a post that I made a while ago, but it should have come from me, not from WetEV. Did I accidentally edit an existing post, or is this some sort of glitch? Since I no longer see the post I replied to, I suspect the former. If so I apologize! Let me know which it is, WetEV and I'll see if there is anything I can do.
