Czech Republic Abandons Renewables For Coal

The state of renewable energy in the Czech Republic as the Government abandons renewables for coal.

The state of renewable energy in the Czech Republic as the Government abandons renewables for coal, in order to maintain the country’s international competitiveness

The rapid disintegration of the EU’s Climate Policy continues as the Czech Republic decides to abandon costly and unreliable renewable energy and double it’s use of coal, a policy that puts the country in direct confrontation with the EU.

In July the Czech Government approved a law  to stop subsidies for new renewables projects at the end of 2013, it was known as far back as 2010 that the cost of Green subsidies was going to cause problems for the economy.

Now the Green Dream is virtually extinct in the Czech Republic, dying to the wail of the Green NGO’s and renewable energy boondogglers who as usual are threatening legal action to keep those Green taxpayer funded subsidies rolling in: Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Déjà vu In Poland

The Fossil of the Day award presented at UNFCCC COP meetings by the Climate Action Network to countries that have failed to adopt Climate Religion as fiscal and political agendas.

The Fossil of the Day award presented at UNFCCC COP meetings by the Climate Action Network to countries that have failed to adopt Climate Religion as fiscal and political policies.

Dateline December 1st 2008 Poznan, Poland the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 14th Conference of the Parties (COP) is underway.

The world 5 years ago was a vastly different place than it is today, fear of Anthropogenic Global Warming was  still in the ascendancy, Al Gore and Rajendra Pachauri were taken seriously, fawning Liberal politicians hang on their every word, Green NGO’s like Greenpeace, WWF and FoE have the ear of politicians and their Green propaganda is included in IPCC Assessment reports as observed scientific fact.

The outcome of COP14 was as always with COP meetings the gateway to the big deal on Climate that was going to happen at the next COP meeting, in this case COP15 in Copenhagen.

As COP14 progressed there was no sign on the horizon of the gathering storms clouds of Climategate, the Greens, warming alarmists and Liberals were confident, the election of the Boy King Obama in the US was going to bring the impetus to force through the climate deal in Hopenhagen.

The Friends of the Earth International website for that day is upbeat and full of optimism: Read the rest of this entry

COP19 Will Be The Biggest Failure Since Records Began

EU Climate Queen Connie Hedegaard is not going to be happy with Poland deciding to build 2 new coal fired power stations to provide reliable and affordable energy.

EU Climate Queen Connie Hedegaard is not going to be happy with Poland deciding to build 2 new coal fired power stations to provide reliable and affordable energy.

The run up to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) like Christmas seems to begin earlier each year, and 2013 is no exception.

Absolutely anything that could be tenuously attributed to Anthropogenic Global Warming is being broadcast by the usual Green propaganda outlets, the UK Guardian is working flat out to keep the scam alive, the story about the dead polar bear on Svalbard, which according to the Guardian starved to death because of global warming, is typical of the shoddy journalism masquerading as Green propaganda, or is it shoddy Green propaganda masquerading as journalism?

Polar bears live on average between 15 – 18 years in the wild and the dead bear in question was 16 years old.

Last years COP18 meeting in Doha was the biggest COP failure yet, ever since the total failure of COP15, and Climategate in 2009 the whole UNFCCC has been in accelerating decline. Read the rest of this entry

Liberal Democrats Plan To Ban All Petrol & Diesel Vehicles By 2040

If Britain's Liberal Democratas have their way then cars like this Jaguar F Type will be banned from the roads by 2040.

If Britain’s Liberal Democrats have their way,  then cars like this Jaguar F Type will be banned from the Britain’s roads by 2040.

Liberal stupidity knows no bounds, not because all Liberals are stupid by any means, but mainly because the Liberal mindset is incapable of thinking anything through beyond the initial knee jerk and feel good factor, “that reduces carbon, therefore it must be a good idea“. More often than not, the ill considered cure turns out to be far worse for all concerned, that the alleged problem it was supposed to fix.

The latest ill thought through Liberal idea concerns petrol and diesel cars which for personal transport use the Liberal Democrats want banned from Britain’s roads no later than 2040, despite the fact that there is little sign that viable and affordable electric cars and vans will be available by then.

At the beginning of the 20th Century there was a very real problem with horse emissions in London, there were so many horses and the were numbers increasing steadily so that by 1920 the alarmists were predicting that London would be knee-deep in horse turds, then the internal combustion engine became viable and horse numbers dropped rapidly and the problem cured itself, notably without any interference from politicians with a Green Liberal and Socialist agenda.

Czech Government Ends Green Subsidies For Renewables

Czech Government has voted to end Green subsidies for solar from the end of 2013

The Czech Government has voted to end Green subsidies for solar from the end of 2013

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

The Death Rattle Of The UN Climate Process

Demonstrators at COP15 Copenhagen which marked the start of the long slow death of the UN Climate process which will be laid to rest at COP20, Paris in 2015.

Demonstrators at COP15 Copenhagen which marked the start of the long slow death of the UN Climate process which will be laid to rest at COP20, Paris in 2015.

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

Britain’s Climate Change Fool – Wrong Again On Shale Gas

Ed Davey Britain's Climate Change Fool has been proved wrong, yet again this time by a report commissioned by him.

Ed Davey Britain’s Climate Change Fool has been proved wrong, yet again this time by a report he commissioned.

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 Brave New Green Future – Flying Wind Turbines

The latest doomed Green wet dream, flying wind turbines

The latest doomed Green wet dream, flying wind turbines

If this were April 1st you would be forgiven for thinking this an April fool story, well to be frank it is a fool story, but more of a Green fool story than anything else.

The greatest Green minds of a generation have been snorting way too much Pixie dust, again, and with their rose tinted safety goggles on, have come up with probably their most stupid idea yet, flying wind turbines.

The plan is to have flocks(??) of wind turbines flying over a mile high above the ground, connected to a ground station via a cable, what could possibly go wrong, or even right come to that?: Read the rest of this entry

Shale Gas – Britain’s Government Undoing The Lies Of Chris Huhne

Britain's Coalition Government is to launch a campaign to undo the lies of the former Climate Change minister Chris Huhne.

Britain’s Coalition Government is to launch a campaign to undo the lies of the former Climate Change minister Chris Huhne.

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

Germany Kills Solar Stone Dead – Green Subsidies To End

The death knell for German solar has sounded, all Green subsidies for solar will stop no later than 2018.

The death knell for German solar has sounded, all Green subsidies for solar will stop no later than 2018.

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
