The democratic process and the EU, probably the biggest oxymoron of all time for a bureaucracy that actively fears the power of the voter.
The EU President, Foreign Minister and the legions of EU Commissioners are appointed by other members of the EU cabal, with voters hardly ever getting a chance to vote on anything as the unaccountable EU continues to encroach on their lives and personal freedoms.
The Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle is a classic case in point, the EU has been at the forefront of pushing the warming alarmist message and doing their level best to de-industrialize Europe. led by the EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard who believes that the human race can pick and choose the climate of the planet by limiting CO2 emissions. Words like delusional spring to mind, and yes it would be funny were it not the case that decisions made by Comrade Connie have a direct impact on lives and jobs.
As the AGW scam has declined year on year, so the dissension in the ranks of the once Green united EU has spread, the EU and Poland are at a standoff over coal burning power stations, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Britain and other countries are now voting against Green policies that were once rubber stamped.
The elections for MEP’s are going to be held in May, and the Greens, Liberals and socialists are getting worried about the rising popularity of right wing parties in Europe, because despite the stories about Global Warming being something that transcends political viewpoints, Global Warming has in reality always been a left wing cause celebre, their last chance to destroy the democratic capitalist system.

The UN Climate Circus met in Bonn, Germany last week, though with the exception of dedicated Green news outlets and blogs the whole event passed with no main stream media attention, such is the state of global warming fear fatigue these days.
The divisions are along the usual lines of who will cut emissions and by how much, the lack of contributions from the so called rich countries to the Green Climate Fund and Loss and Damage, more commonly known as wealth redistribution.
Loss and Damage was the reason that COP19 was dead in the water, even before it had started. Barack Obama instructed US Climate Envoys prior to COP19 that giving away trillions of dollars for years to pay for the guilt of being an industrialized nation would not “float with the voters.”
A few months on little has changed as the latest round of UN climate talks achieved nothing: Read the rest of this entry
The severe weather events hitting Britain at the moment were always going to be grabbed by the warming alarmists as conclusive proof that man made climate change was the root cause.
As usual the warmists quote the UN IPCC report when it suits their argument, and then completely ignore their “science” when it does not match the current and ever changing political narrative.
A cynic would most probably argue, rightly it must be said, that for years those with an obsessive fear of CO2 have been using emotion suitably laced with cherry picked junk science to convince others of their beliefs.
The emotion most favoured by Gaia’s disciples is fear, their stories always follow the same plot line, could and probably, now mean will most definitely happen, and we should all be terrified of the outcome of their predictions.
That to date not one single Green doomsday scenario has come to pass matters not to the warming alarmists, previously failed predictions are swept under the responsibly sourced bamboo matting and a new cry of Green wolf shrilly broadcast.
How many times has the Arctic going to be ice free by this date and then that date?
All the fear stories and junk science have failed to carry the message to the masses, now Environmentalist George Marshall believes he has the answer halt the decline in Climate Religion: Read the rest of this entry
The stranglehold that environmentalism and being Green has on government departments in the western world has reached epidemic proportions of stupidity, or to put it another way the clowns have taken over the circus.
Much of Britain, and especially the south west has been submerged in flood water for weeks now, the Somerset Levels are not far off of joining Atlantis.
There are many complex and interlinked reasons as to why the floods have been so bad, one of the most significant is the lack of dredging of the rivers which in the case of the Somerset Levels stopped some 25 years ago. Dredging while solving one problem upstream can lead to further problems downstream caused by the increased flow of water as it heads to the sea.
On the never ending news reports from the flooded areas many people have been heard to say that the Environment Agency is putting birds before humans, now a group of Peers has revealed that in a meeting they were told by Environment Agency officials that no steps to protect the only rail link between Exeter and Plymouth could be taken, until an impact assessment had been carried out on the local sea birds.

The secret of any campaign be it military, or in this case Green protest is to pick a fight you can realistically win, otherwise you are likely to have your own Battle of the Little Big Horn and join George Armstrong Custer in ignominious defeat.
Keystone XL is a 1700 mile pipeline that will stretch from Alberta in Canada to refineries in Texas and Oklahoma, the pipeline will be buried 4 feet underground and have switch off points every 20 miles.
The Greens and warming alarmists decided that the Keystone XL pipeline was going to be their battle, they would defeat the pipeline and the evil oil sands of Alberta would forever stay in the ground, failure to obey the Greens would naturally lead to catastrophic global warming and the whole planet would fry as a consequence.
The warming alarmists and their scientists expected the great Green hope, Barack Obama would live up to his Green rhetoric and a put a stop to the whole project. Read the rest of this entry
It is just one month into 2014 and the decline in the Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle within the European Union continues, this time with visible splits in the EU Commission on Energy.
European Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger has called the latest EU climate ambition for 2030 emissions targets “stupid or arrogant“, this is not the first time that Oettinger has broken ranks with the EU Green cabal. Last year Oettinger pointed out that there is no mileage in the leading the way with Green policies that kill jobs and make energy unaffordable, the rest of the world is not going to follow the EU’s lead and commit economic suicide.
The latest Green stupidity from the EU commission is to cut Greenhouse gas emissions 40% from 1990 levels by 2030, in plans announced last week. Read the rest of this entry
The collapse of the warming alarmist industry continues unabated with one of the last bastions of the dying Climate Fad, the EU, failing to commit economic suicide at a suitably fast pace for environmentalists and Green NGO’s.
The immediate reaction for Liberals and Greens when their aspirations are not fully met and pandered to, is outrage; the problem with outrage is that being an intense emotion it clouds judgement, thinking and writing.
This latest piece from the Head of the Environment (has anyone told Gaia?) Damian Carrington at the Guardian falls in to just that category: Read the rest of this entry
“If is the middle word in life” said Marlon Brando’s character Colonel Kilgore in the movie Apocalypse Now.
Generations of computer programmers know If is a conditional, as in the conditional If, used in many programming languages, only in warming alarmist world are conditionals an absolute, where if and could, are actually synonyms for will.
When you couple this skewing of language with vested interests reporting on vested interests, you end up with the a classic Green non story like “Value of coal assets ‘could be halved’ if world goes low-carbon“.
Conditionals are of course based upon probability, and obviously there is a chance that the entire world could decide to believe the Green meme, leave fossil fuel reserves in the ground and decide to follow a dimly lit future based upon intermittent Green approved energy generation.
The big question, is it likely? Read the rest of this entry
