EU Energy Commissioner Calls EU 2030 Emissions Targets Stupid Or Arrogant

European Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger - "It is becoming increasingly questionable whether our pioneering activities can be financed when the rest of the world does not follow suit"

European Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger – “It is becoming increasingly questionable whether our pioneering activities can be financed when the rest of the world does not follow suit”

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 Classic Green Non Story – Coal Assets Could Be Halved If…..

Coal assets could be worth less than half of their current market value if the world agrees tougher climate targets according to a report by the bank HSBC

Coal assets could be worth less than half of their current market value if the world agrees tougher climate targets according to a report by the bank HSBC

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

UK Guardian Finally Admits The Truth About Wind Farms

UK Guardian finally admits the truth about bird choppers, but with an ulterior motive.

UK Guardian finally admits the truth about bird choppers, but with an ulterior motive.

The UK Guardian has always pushed the Green meme about wind power being the cheapest form of energy in the long run, and what is more important it will allow Britain to meet the now conveniently forgotten carbon targets that once dominated the political landscape.

Us nasty climate change deniers have always maintained that wind power was no more than a heavily publicly subsidised monument to Green folly that provides very expensive intermittent energy supplies, creates no lasting real jobs and the production of wind turbines has created environmental catastrophes in countries like China.

With it being the Guardian a fair number of those that comment are outraged, in the way only a liberal mindset can be by the sheer heresy of the article and even more so that there is no mention anywhere of Climate Change, Global Warming or loss and damage. Read the rest of this entry

The Pre COP19 Climate Of Fear

In 6 days COP19 Warsaw will begin, in past years the run up to the failed COP meeting is always preceded by a climate of fear. 2013 is no exception, although the things we should be frightened of are less imaginative than usual. The Green furby will get us all.

6 days and COP19 Warsaw will start, in past years the run up to the failed COP meeting is always preceded by a climate of fear. 2013 is no exception, although the things we should be frightened of are less imaginative than usual, however the most upsetting event of all is way too awful to mention in a picture caption.

In just 6 days time COP19 Warsaw will start, in preparation for this next UNFCCC slow motion car crash the Big Green propaganda machine has been at work thinking up new things we should all be terrified of, because of Climate Change.

The choice of Poland to host COP19, has at best been controversial, as far as the Green boondogglers are concerned, they know the game of Green charades that played out in COP18 Doha last year is a portent of the things to come in Warsaw.

So what should we be all be terrified of in closing weeks of 2013? Read the rest of this entry

The Global Warming Boondoggle Pantomime To Tragedy

It was all so rosy in 1988 for the Agrarian Society lovers, however 25 years of symbolic politics has ended in Tragedy for Gaia.

It was all so rosy in 1988 for the Agrarian Society lovers, however 25 years of symbolic politics has ended in Tragedy for Gaia.

The warming alarmists, Greens and Liberals are in a mixed state of consternation and incredulity that the world has not stopped turning since the release of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (AR5).

The Green scammers were over the moon with the PR for the report, which says something completely different to the findings, so the IPCC released the bad news first so that the Green propaganda machine could go into overdrive with the fear message, yet again.

We are over the peak. Years late, the IPCC concedes some territory and wears headlines they must hate (“Global warming is just HALF what we said“, “We got it wrong on warming“), but PR still rules, and in the big game, this will quickly spin to a minor bump. It’s a classic technique to release “the bad news” before the main report, to clear the air for the messages the agents want to stick.

The trouble is there has not been a lot PR message sticking, world leaders have mostly ignored the report, unless of course they stand to get their grasping hands on some climate justice money.

The stark naked reality of the situation has not been lost on warming alarmist Dr Christopher Shaw, who has impeccable warmist credentials like the Grantham Institute and the Climate Crunch project: Read the rest of this entry

The Green Socialist Hypocrisy Of Ed Miliband

Have you ever wondered how and why UK energy prices have risen so fast? The man to thank is Ed Miliband and the Climate Change Act he pushed through Parliament

Have you ever wondered how and why UK energy prices have risen so fast? The man to thank is Ed Miliband and the Climate Change Act he pushed through Parliament.

Politicians in the main are a pretty sickening breed, politicians of the socialist persuasion particularly so, when socialism and Green are mixed then be prepared for some truly sickening hypocrisy.

Take for example one Ed Miliband, leader of the British Labour Party and an ardent supporter of that global left wing cause célèbre the Green Agenda.

It is no secret that polling wise Ed Miliband is about as popular as a dead skunk in an elevator, so with the usual socialist shape shifting that Labour do so well, Ed Miliband is trying to buy votes by saying that a Labour government would freeze energy prices for 2 years if they were elected.

On the face of it, nothing wrong with that statement,  were it not for the fact that Miliband had also committed Labour to the lunacy of 2030 decarbonisation targets, like they say dumb can be cured, stupid is forever. Read the rest of this entry

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

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 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
