Climategate – EU Plans Toughest Emissions Targets In The World

Some people wont give up with the AGW scam and the EU are now the leading players in trying to force crippling taxes on the struggling economies of Europe. The overall plan is wealth redistribution and unelected one world socialist government, something the EU identifies strongly with as elections are a bigger anathema to the EU than they were to Gordon Brown.

The original plan from the EU was a 20% cut in carbon emissions by 2020, now the euro morons want a 30% cut by 2020 on the grounds that this will be easily achievable as so much industrial capability has been lost in the recession.

The first question is why are they persisting when Obama and Kevin Rudd have backed away from this sort of economic stupidity?

Then when the whole junk science behind the AGW scam has so many question marks over it, why base any sort of policy on science that needs to be revisited.

The European Commission is determined to press ahead with the cuts despite the financial turmoil gripping the bloc, even though it would require Britain and other EU member states to impose far tougher financial penalties on their industries than are being considered by other large economies.

The plan, to cut emissions by 30 per cent on 1990 levels by 2020, would cost the EU an extra £33 billion a year by 2020, according to a draft of the Commission’s communication leaked to The Times.

Business leaders fear that thousands of jobs could be lost and energy bills could soar. Carbon taxes on road fuel, heating and other sources of emissions could be introduced, with proceeds reinvested in renewable energy products.

This is no economic future in renewable enerygy products or the Green jobs lie as the Spanish who invested heavily in Green jobs have found to their cost.

Connie Hedegaard, the Climate Commissioner, will make the case for the EU to commit itself unilaterally to a 30 per cent cut, to inspire other countries to follow suit and accelerate the development of low-carbon industries.

Brilliant move worthy of someone rejecting a blood transfusion on religious grounds and dying, watch the rest of the world laugh and the EU sink into Green eco hair shirt poverty while the third world dictators stuff their Swiss bank accounts with our money. Aardvark is left wondering what world people like Hedegaard actually live in. Doubtless she will turn out to be another Harriet Harman rich champagne socialist guided by bourgeoise Marxist ideals.

Jeremy Nicholson, director of the Energy Intensive Users Group, said: “A unilateral move to 30 per cent would damage the European economy at a time when we can ill afford it.”

Neil Bentley, director of business environment at the CBI, said: “Talk of moving to 30 per cent is premature because it seems unlikely that we will get a global deal this year.” The Times
