Dear Dave What We Want Is An Affordable Energy Policy

The rumblings of discontent over the unaffordable climate change
religion policies continues at the Conservative Home site with still more rebellion over blind adherence to the Church of Climatology.
Yesterday the Energy Intensive Users Group and the Trades Union Congress released a major report on the potential impact of climate change policies on energy intensive industries. Here is what some of the groups involved said about the potential impact on jobs, sorry to quote at length but this is an important statement from a number of major employers:
“Managing Director and CEO of Tata Steel Europe, Kirby Adams said: “Many governments have determined that man-made climate change is one of the most pressing issues the world faces today. Corus can be part of the solution through relentless process improvements, investing in breakthrough technologies and supplying and developing new products that underpin a lower CO2 economy.
“Many of the taxes and costs identified in this report are UK-specific and will reduce the competitiveness of Corus’ British operations. Moreover, the very significant cumulative nature of the additional costs likely to come in under European legislation will damage the competitiveness of all EU steelmakers and limit their ability to fulfil their crucial role in a low carbon future.”
The warning is there about competitiveness but will this bother Dave and Huhne as they take their places in the pews of the Church.
As an earlier Civitas report showed, the closure of just one plant, the INEOS Chlor chlor-alkali plant in Runcorn, could cost 46,000 jobs directly and 87,000 jobs in the wider economy. That plant has no chance if energy costs keep rising to pay for failing climate change policies.
Under Brown and his Climate Change
Twat Secretary little Eddy Miliband at lot of British jobs were lost at Redcar last year. Jobs that have ended up in India because of games played with Carbon Offsets and Cap n Trade, jobs that will never come back to Britain.
We can’t duck the issue of environmental targets that could undo attempts over the next decade to produce a revived, better balanced economy and sustainable public finances. It is absolutely vital that the coalition wake up to the need for serious reform to reduce the cost of climate change policy to families and industry.
They key words being affordable energy for business and families and fewer people in energy poverty, not some socialist wealth redistribution scheme called Man Made Climate Change used to stuff the Swiss bank accounts of Chavez and Mugabe.
