International green groups, though, have repeatedly warned that wind development is falling far short of what is needed to transition from fossil fuels to green energy.
A report on offshore wind from the Global Wind Energy Council noted that while a record 21.1 gigawatts of offshore wind was connected around the world in 2021, that figure fell far short of what is needed to reach net-zero. 
And the International Energy Agency said 70 to 80 gigawatts of offshore wind must be installed annually by 2050 to transition from fossil fuel dependence.

When I was a kid, we took the cog railway to the top of Mount Washington. It was 80 degrees, but up there it was around 50 - and felt colder. It was WINDY. But nothing like this.

-100 degree wind chill. Unreal.


The polar vortex will cause temperatures to tumble to their lowest levels in years across New England late this week. The harsh cold, when paired with strong winds, could cause frostbite in minutes, and one remote location will face weather conditions so extreme that it will feel otherworldly.


The heart of the cold weather is forecast to unfold across New England from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning with subzero temperatures expected across a widespread area. Boston is forecast to experience one of its top-five lowest temperatures in recorded history on Saturday morning with the mercury predicted to reach 10 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. 


But the extreme nature of the upcoming Arctic blast will be unparalleled at the summit of Mount Washington, the tallest mountain in the northeastern United States.




The AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperature is forecast to drop to 100 degrees below zero at the summit of the 6,288-foot-tall mountain in northern New Hampshire on Friday night into Saturday morning.

Standard drop in T with altitude is 4.5°F per 1,000 feet.

So I'll regain the vigor of my youth at lower elevations?

Al Gore and the End of Climate Policy - WSJ

In the meantime, though, thanks to Rockefeller, Mr. Gore and others, we ended up with policy option C—spend X trillion to have no effect on climate. Our obsessive focus on green energy subsidies pleases many constituents but incentivizes more energy consumption overall. After all, the human appetite for energy is limitless if the price is right. Meanwhile, unused and even denigrated by the left is the only tool that was ever likely to reduce meaningfully the path of emissions, a carbon tax.

Oh well. Climate policy is effectively over and that’s probably fine. The energy machine will certainly incorporate new technologies, including renewables; there won’t be a major shift in emissions from the path they would have taken anyway.
Mr. Gore will continue his angry prophet act. Politics will continue to fuel a sacred pork scramble. The climate press will balance on its noses whatever memes are tossed its way. And humanity will adapt to the climate it gets, which the best current guess says will probably be another 1 to 2 degrees Celsius warmer over the next century.
