A new analysis of government and industry figures of Britain’s wind industry by the Daily Telegraph has shown yet again that these pointless monuments to Green folly are not only still economically unviable, but also, the Green lie about all the jobs that will be created, is exposed for the naked bare faced lie that it is, as one operator of multiple wind farms admits that wind farms are not labour intensive.
The Great Man Made Global Warming scare was always a political agenda embraced by the left, so it is no surprise to learn that this patently ludicrous system of Green subsidy known as Renewables Obligation was the brain child of Britain’s worst Prime Minister in 200 years, Gordon Brown and his then Green sock puppet Ed Miliband.
The Renewables Obligation is added to energy bills and paid for by every household and employer in the country, forcing families and the most vulnerable into energy poverty, pushing up employers costs and killing jobs, all to support an energy generation system that is intermittent and requires fossil fuel power stations on 25/7 standby for when intermittency strikes.

The problem for the Greens, Liberals and Socialists right now is that their Climate Change scam is melting away faster than their junk science computer models predicted the Arctic ice cap would, back in 2007 the Green peddlers of fear were predicting that the Arctic would be ice free, during the summer months no later than 2012.
As always this was just more Green wishful thinking and hoping for a real climate disaster, something to give their fear stories some legitimacy at last, the hope that one day the wolf they have cried for so many times will actually turn up and lay waste to a significant portion of our planet.
It is this immediate compulsion to cry wolf that has been a significant factor in the decline of Big Green, the failed prediction factor, the lack of any statistically significant warming for 17 years another, the truth coming out about the real costs of Green energy, the smug do what we say not what we do platitudes of the Champagne Celebrity Greens, and of course, observed empirical evidence which bears no relation to the warming predicted by their junk science computer models.
As the decline in Climate Religion carries on unabated the warmists are scratching around in the dirt looking for new ways to keep their scam alive and what better possible way could there be than another fear story? Read the rest of this entry
Just about 6 months ago the latest UN Climate Circus meeting, COP18 in Doha finished, just like it’s predecessors from COP15 onwards, COP18 was an unmitigated failure.
From the start COP18 was doomed, the plummeting attendance levels seen at COP17 continued with COP18, the conference being less well attended then even COP17 was.
What really made COP18 a spectacular failure was the conduct of the COP18 President Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah during the closing stages of the conference, where desperate to find a successor to the failed Kyoto Protocol that expired on December 31st 2012, Al-Attiyah effectively forced through new non binding Kyoto texts.
The Kyoto amendment was tabled by the grasping hands of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) who will stop at nothing to get their Climate Justice money, the money they were promised for playing along with the AGW scam and perpetuating the lie that their islands are under threat from sea levels that are not rising, naturally the amendment was backed by those strongholds of Green foolishness Europe and Australia.
When COP18 finished the Russians were far from happy about COP18 and Oleg Shamanov being ignored: Read the rest of this entry
One of the great political oxymorons of all time is Liberal, those that espouse great and noble political aims and objectives for good of us all, are always the first to demand press censorship when the rest of the populace does not immediately embrace the noble and lofty of goal of the Liberal.
As the great man made climate change boondoggle has declined so there have been increasing calls from those who believe in Anthropogenic Global Warming to stifle debate and punish the heretical non believers. Back in July 2011 on the other side of the world, Australian Green Party deputy Leader Christine Milne was promising to punish any newspaper that published articles that did not follow the party line on Global Warming.
Meanwhile back in the present day, Britain’s very own Climate Change Fool Liberal Democrat Secretary for Climate Superstition and Witchcraft at the DECC, Ed Davey is telling the press that they cannot print stories that are critical of man made climate change, because the public believe them and it is destroying the Green agenda that the Liberal Democrats so fervently support as part of their political manifesto.
In the post Leveson world, politicians increasingly believe they can throw their weight around and tell the press the way it is going to be, well possibly a real heavy weight politician like former prisoner of Her Majesty Chris Huhne, might have got away with it, but a lightweight glove puppet like Ed Davey is going to be told to go forth and multiply.

Britain’s very own Climate Change fool, Liberal Democrat Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Davey is on the warpath against the heretical non believers in his Climate Religion.
According to Davey the right wing media provides a platform for AGW sceptics to have their point of view heard, this is of course outrageous to Davey’s mind, enfeebled as it is by Liberal thought processes. The twenty years of pro AGW propaganda from most mainstream media outlets, the continuing sycophancy for the AGW scam by the tax payer funded BBC, Channel 4 and the Guardian are not enough for Davey and the other warming alarmists, who want nothing more than a total news blackout on anything that contradicts the religious scriptures of Nicholas Stern, Michael E Mann, Phil Jones et al.
Anything that contradicts the scriptures of Anthropogenic Global Warming, like observed empirical evidence for example, something to be avoided at all costs.
Davey’s campaign continued with a speech to the warming alarmists at the UK Met Office Hadley center where Read the rest of this entry
Having had a month off blogging and really taking no interest, in the news or the warming alarmists due to being very busy relocating, the decline of the AGW scam is quite amazing, when you read loads of new stories everyday you tend not to particularly notice the gradual decline, until some major event like Climategate or another UNFCC COP failure happens.
The old saying goes that a week in politics is a long time, well a month in the Anthropogenic Global Warming industry equates to several years of decline, as the move away from Green foolishness and stupidity accelerates in the last bastion of the Church of Climatology, Europe.
David Cameron and his “Greenest Government Ever” in Britain are being told to listen to Climate Change Skeptics, by none other than George Eustice MP, Dave’s very own Climate Change Adviser:
He said: “I am personally persuaded that there is a link between carbon emissions and climate change but it is essential that all perspectives in this argument are heard.
“I don’t like the way that legitimate, yet contrarian scientific opinion on the issue has been rubbished or ridiculed. Sometimes those who believe in climate change have foolishly undermined their own case.”
Eustice is like all the politicians, still hedging their political bets by saying they are personally persuaded in the existence of the big bad CO2 wolf that is so often summoned, yet never comes, while preparing to advise the British Government to implement policies that go directly against their personal persuasions, Read the rest of this entry
There is a chance that levels of atmospheric CO2 could exceed 400 ppm next month, according to readings from the US government’s Earth Systems Research laboratory in Mauna Loa, Hawaii.
So far this year hourly readings of 400 ppm have been recorded 6 times in the high Arctic, with such a symbolically important event about to happen the usual Green suspects have been begun wailing, and yes you guessed correctly, we are all going to die again.
In a wonderfully self-defeating story in the UK Guardian, Green evangelist John Vidal has heeded the call for CO2 hysteria: Read the rest of this entry
The European Unions climate change policy is at the point of collapse, the carbon floor price has crashed through the floor to an all time low of €2.63 a metric ton, after MEPs voted against “backloading” the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
The EU ETS has been in crisis for years, there was a huge €5bn VAT fraud, then the computer systems were hacked and down for weeks, the price of carbon globally has been in free fall and backloading was the last ditch attempt to save the ETS.
Backloading is essentially withholding from sale 900 million carbon permits in an attempt to drive up the price of carbon which continues to fall due to the economic problems and decline in manufacturing in the EU.
Commissar Connie described backloading as “no brainer”, ignoring the obvious irony of such a statement, Hedegaard had put her all her political clout behind backloading, the rejection by the EU Parliament is a decisive blow to Hedegaard and the Green Agenda she relentlessly pushes.

The summer of 2012 was one of the hottest on record, America’s corn belt was parched dry, frequent comparisons were to made to the Dust Bowl disasters of the 1930s, but unlike the 1930s this modern drought was hailed as further proof of the hand of man influencing the climate.
The Boy King Obama, facing re-election in November 2012 immediately attributed the drought to Anthropogenic Global Warming, the usual Green suspects rallied around the king, who then received even more support for his theory from such Hollywood scientific luminaries as Bette Midler, the guy with the squeaky voice, what’s his name, oh yeah Matt Damon and Barbra Streisand to name
the most irritating but a few.
So the stage is set, the good and the Green have written the script, another weather event caused by CO2 and man, further proof of man made climate change, but was the 2012 US drought really caused by Anthropogenic Climate Change? Read the rest of this entry
This is a classic case of government wasting tax payers money in an irresponsible way, all in the name of the International Aid Budget which currently stands at 0.7% of Britain’s GDP, and being Green.
Pitcairn Island is where the crew of HMAV Bounty settled, after casting the Captain of the Bounty, William Bligh adrift, the story has been immortalized in several Hollywood movies over the years so most people have some knowledge of the story.
The mutineers led by Fletcher Christian consisted of 8 British sailors, 6 Tahitian men, 11 Tahitian women, and 1 baby landed on Pitcairn in 1798 and remained there undiscovered until the US sealing ship Topaz visited the island in 1808. The people who landed in 1798 are the ancestors of today’s Pitcairn Islanders.
History is not sure what fate held became of Fletcher Christian, he is alleged to have been brutally murdered on the island, other stories say that Christian made it back to England, though the logistics of doing this were nearly impossible at the time, for example today to travel to Pitcairn Island means flying to New Zealand, then taking 2 more flights and finally a 32 hour boat trip to reach the island, this place really does put the R in remote.
Pitcairn Island is a British Overseas Territory, a throw back to the days of the Empire, which means it receives priority foreign aid from the Foreign Aid budget, which is currently £43000 per islander. Estimates of the island population vary from 44 to 67, with 55 being the most popular, which is where the figure of £43000 comes from, considerably more than the average wage of £25000 in Britain.
On top of all the foreign aid money flowing in, the geniuses at the Department for International Development (DfID) decided that it was time for Green energy on Pitcairn Island and that a wind farm should be built: Read the rest of this entry
