The Green collapse continues as the Czech Republic becomes the latest in a long list of countries to cut back, or stop the Green subsidies that are the lifeblood for Green renewable energy.
As usual the overly generous subsidies for renewable energy are pushing the cost of electricity ever upwards, killing jobs and pushing families into energy poverty.
The Czechs were aware back in 2010 that a problem was looming with energy prices and that renewables were going to be the cause: Read the rest of this entry
Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for the UN Climate
process scam boondoggle which has been in terminal decline since the massive failure of COP15 in Copenhagen, back in 2009.
Since then each successive COP meeting has been a more spectacular car crash than it’s predecessors, the last COP18 saw the end of the Kyoto Protocol and no real successor to the only global treaty on emissions. In a desperate attempt to achieve something the COP18 President, Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah forced a number of measures through as the meeting was closing, that post COP18 have subsequently caused way more problems than they solved at the time.
Ignoring the observed empirical evidence of the COP18 failure the EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard wrote a long article for the UK Guardian on December 14th 2012 claiming that COP18, was in fact a success, it was just the success was hiding in the deep oceans with the missing warming, or something like that.
Comrade Connie had this to say: Read the rest of this entry
Ed Davey Liberal Democrat
Energy Secretary Climate Change Fool has been proved wrong again, as an event this is wholly unremarkable given the frequency of Davey being wrong, but what makes this particular faux pas so amusing is that Davey commissioned the report, himself.
Shale Gas and fracking has always terrified the warmists and Greens, a cheap, reliable and affordable energy source that creates real lasting jobs, generates real revenue and wealth, unlike Green renewable energy which creates short term installation jobs and cannot exist without the oxygen of tax payer funded Green subsidies.
From the moment that Shale Gas was mentioned for Britain, the Greens started a campaign of hysteria and lies to try and stop fracking from ever starting. The campaign against fracking was initially led by then Liberal Democrat Climate Change Secretary, and now convicted criminal Chris Huhne who announced that Shale Gas would not happen because of the sacred Carbon Targets. When this failed to stop fracking Read the rest of this entry
The sheer farce of Britain’s
Coalition Vichy Government has never been more clearly demonstrated than by this story.
If only David Cameron had cojones 10% of the size of Maggie Thatcher’s then Britain would not have this sorry sham of a Government, Cameron should have formed a minority government and got on with the job, instead the Green lobotomized heir to Tony Blair formed a coalition with Little Nicky Clegg and his Liberal Democrats. A Coalition that is at odds with itself, instead of a unified approach to all policies from both parties, certain policies are run exclusively by the Conservatives, others by the Liberal Democrats, which gives little impression of cohesion, and can have disastrous consequences for the country, a case in point being Climate and Energy Policy.
When the Coalition was formed Liberal Democrat Green ideologue and soon to be convicted criminal Chris Huhne was appointed to run the Department of Energy and Climate Change. Read the rest of this entry
German solar is dead, it just hasn’t hit the ground yet.
The shining beacon of Green light in Europe, Germany is to kill its solar renewables industry dead no later than 2018 when all Green subsidies will stop.
Solar power is actually more intermittent than wind, if that were possible, the subsidies paid are economically unviable and to make matters worse there is a massive trade war spat going on between the EU and China, who the EU have accused of dumping solar panels at below cost: Read the rest of this entry
Britain’s Climate Change fool is at it again, this time Ed Davey is telling the country that wind and solar will keep the lights on when 20% of Britain’s power stations close by the end of the decade.
Writing in Liberal Democrat Voice Davey then drags out the well worn Green jobs lie, Green jobs have not happened anywhere in the world thus far, but don’t worry because Britain will buck the trend and millions of lasting Green jobs will be created because a Green ideologue says so.
Naturally consumers will be better off as well, as Davey predicts that 30% of Britain’s energy mix will be funded by taxpayers in the form of Green subsidies for wind, solar and all the other economically non viable renewable energy schemes that Big Green see as the future.

Denier, Climate Contrarian and an old favorite not heard since the UNFCCC Copenhagen COP15 fiasco, flat earther, all terms used by the socialists and Greens to try to discredit those that believe science is about observed empirical evidence, not a sheep like pseudo scientific consensus.
You can tell a lot about a disparaging term, by looking at those that throw the term around, in this case flat earther was a popular slur for one James Gordon Brown, the worst British PM in 200 years. When Brown’s hysterically funny 50 Days to Save World speech crashed and burned in the run up to COP15, and then when COP15 followed suit, Brown started calling everyone who did not believe in the AGW scam flat earthers.
Gordon Brown has enough issues to be a case study for any psychology student after a PhD, famous for being absolutely right about everything in his own mind as was seen by the slip in a speech Brown made in the House of Commons where he claimed to have saved the world, before quickly correcting himself, those that disagreed with the great man had to dodge a barrage of flying Nokias in Downing Street.
Brown was under no illusions he was unelectable he either dodged or chickened out of any election that came his way, until finally he ran out of time and the voters passed judgement on the Great Man who promised he had abolished Boom and Bust. Anyone delusional enough to believe they have abolished Boom and Bust would naturally believe in the politically motivated scientific consensus of Anthropogenic Global Warming.
Now as the Boy King in the US, Barry Obama tries to by-pass the democratic process with his Climate Change agenda the term flat earther has been dusted off and wheeled out again: Read the rest of this entry
Julia Gillard’s Labor regime in Australia is in deep political trouble because Gillard lied to voters, when she was elected Gillard promised she would not implement a carbon tax, a promise she promptly broke.
Gillard is no different from any other politician, it’s all about power, and the way Gillard managed to hang on to power was to do a deal with the Australian Green Party, the price of this deal a Carbon Tax and Gillard reneging on her promise to voters.
The Carbon Tax has been popular with voters, about as popular as a skunk in an elevator, 65% of Australian voters are against it, and despite Gillard offering bribes to business and voters the carbon tax is showing no sign of becoming popular anytime soon. The Labor party suffered a massive defeat in the March 2012 Queensland elections, and currently polling indicates a similar outcome is very likely in the Federal Election this coming September.

Spain was one of the first European countries to Green their economy and use the German Green Energy subsidy model, driven by the socialist zeal of the then Spanish government, going Green was done literally at all costs.
The Great Man Made Global Warming boondoggle was always a cause espoused by the left, the bright Green future of renewable energy, the millions of Green jobs that would be created, prosperity and wealth from cutting edge Green technologies would flow endlessly as the rest of the world rushed to embrace the brave new Green world, bit of shame really, all in all, that the Green pipe dreams, like their Green Armageddon scenarios of global climate catastrophe, failed to happen.
The real cost of going Green to Spain has been horrendous, every Green job that was created killed 2.2 jobs in non Green industries, as the costs of the Green subsidies mounted so the new Spanish Government started to cut the subsidies for wind and solar and the familiar story of the Green death spiral started.
If that were not bad enough, now Spain’s Green Chickens have come home to roost in their eco friendly sustainably sourced coop: Read the rest of this entry
