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
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 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.

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 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.
