The Left have always attached noble and lofty adjectives to their political aims, taking the moral high ground, leading by example are popular chants from the comrades of socialism, environmentalism and the easily manipulated eco sheep of the Occupy movement.
All the talk of moral high ground and leading way to a brave new Green world are just smokescreens to force the environmental legislation through at any price, with the secondary vain hope that there might be other ecomentalist simpletons in power elsewhere who also want to de-industrialise their societies, commit economic suicide and embrace the misery and drudge of the Green Agrarian Society.
All in all, it sounds like political suicide, well it would be if the EU Commissars concerned were elected, but as usual with the EU democracy is not in the loop, so the unelected and unanswerable climate zealots will continue with their Green agenda, that the rest of the world does not want any part of.
So much for leading by example, instead the largely bankrupt EU is on a collision course for a Global Trade War with the rest of the world: Read the rest of this entry
There are many reasons why Britain should get the hell out of the EU, one of the most pressing is the blind adherence to Climate Religion and the desperate desire by Connie Hedegaard to put a stop to all new fossil fuel extraction technologies.
The Co-op bank disingenuously linked oil extraction from tar sands with fracking of shale gas, but then the bank rollers of the Labour party would use disinformation to protect their massive investment in fair trade eco friendly renewable tax payer funded subsidies, now this mythical link has been grabbed by the warming alarmists desperate to stop affordable energy from fossil fuels putting a stop to their tax payer subsidised scam.
Hedegaard, the unelected EU Climate Commissar wants to ban oil from tar sands from being used within the EU, this will also have implications for shale gas.
Shale gas frightens the warming alarmists, as in really frightens them: Read the rest of this entry
Both organisations have warned that companies will relocate to countries where Climate Religion does not hold sway over the economic good of the country, countries where the politicians put the good of their country ahead of an absurd fear of an inert trace gas.
The recent news that Germany bowing to Green hysteria post Fukushima and phasing out its nuclear power stations by 2022, and replacing lost generating capacity with unreliable and heavily subsidised renewables is worrying German business: Read the rest of this entry
Chris Huhne has really excelled this time, following on from the pathetically desperate statement that “Fighting Climate Change Deniers Is Like Fighting Hitler”, Huhne has now ordered an inquiry into the Tory MEPs in the European Parliament.
Huhne is still smarting from the major defeat EU Climate Religion suffered on July 5th 2011 when the EU voted against the economic suicide pact proposed by Huhne and Hedegaard.
Within hours an embarrassingly bad damage limitation program was in place, and now Huhne a member of a different political party is now ordering an inquiry in to which fossil fuel lobbyists “got to” the Tory MEPs, even for Huhne this is a new high water mark of hypocrisy, the Chris Huhne who when asked to jump by NGOs like WWF, Friends of The Earth and Greenpeace meekly asks “How High?“: Read the rest of this entry
This absolutely has to be a first, a centre left think tank has criticised a Climate Religion policy warning that the Carbon Floor Price introduced in the 2011 Budget, will cause fuel poverty for tens of thousands of additional homes, do nothing to reduce emissions and could even end up giving Climate Religion policies and taxes a bad name.
Wait one, didn’t Gordon Brown and his pathetic attempt to raise revenue by back dating Vehicle Excise Duty, under the guise of saving the planet already do that?
In 2004 there were 1.4 million households living in energy poverty, energy poverty is defined as spending 10% of your disposable income on heating and light, in 2011 there are 5.5 million households living in energy poverty, and this is before the Climate Religion policies of renewables, the outrageous subsidies that renewable attract and other green taxes are passed on to business, families and the old.
In Britain there are 2 million pensioner households living in fuel poverty: Read the rest of this entry
