The End Of Warming Alarmism In Britain?

HM Treasury wants to absorb Department of Climate Change

Some really good news for those not taken in by the Climate Change Disruption scam, and still more doom and gloom for the dwindling bunch of warming alarmists.

Chris “Chicken Little” Huhne was only yesterday outlining new plans for Green taxes and further donations to the Church of Climatology, when today comes the news that HM Treasury want to “shit can” the Department of Energy and Climate Change and absorb it’s staff in to HM Treasury.

Huhne is terrified at the prospect that should this happen his staff will , in Huhne’s own words “end up going native”.

“Going native” was an expression used to denigrate those Britishers who adopted the customs and ways of the people of British Empire and turned their backs on the repressive society of Victorian Britain.

A curious but quite revealing observation from Huhne, obviously his staff don’t believe in ManBearPig and given the opportunity will be off, faster than a ferret up a drain pipe.

The news came today as Huhne gave his speech to the Liberal Democrat conference. His pitch was that the government wanted to foster a “third industrial revolution” in low-carbon technology. But the techno-optimism of the speech sat awkwardly with the news that he has been forced to contemplate breaking up his department.

A simple and easy way to get rid of the warming alarmists for the politicians, while saving political face for having been dumb enough to be conned by the AGW scam in the first place, is to do away with Ministries like Huhnes all neatly obfuscated by the need for austerity measures.

Within a reduced budget, the climate change secretary is pushing to secure money for a green investment bank and the four carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstrations to pioneer cleaner coal power stations, brought in by the former climate change secretary, Ed Miliband. Senior civil servants at Decc say the Treasury does not want to provide the upfront costs of the demonstrations, known as CCS4. Senior sources concede the money for CCS4 was in jeopardy but insist that it is now safe.

Any Coalition Minister that follows a policy of Ed Miliband should immediately have their Department closed down.

Ed Miliband, who is now standing for the Labour leadership, said that any merger of his former department would be a “backwards step”and urged Huhne to stand up to the Treasury. “The very fact that the government is considering the abolition of Decc blows a hole in their claim to be the greenest government ever,” said Miliband. “We had cross-party support when we set up Decc but the commitment of the Tories and the Lib Dems appears to be as flimsy as their green policies. Whether they abolish Decc or not we now know the truth about David Cameron’s green credentials.”

Michael Jacobs, Gordon Brown’s special adviser on climate change, said that severe cuts would severely impair the government’s ability to deliver on its climate change commitments. “The department is effectively in charge of hundreds of billions of pounds worth of private sector investments. There is a lot of detailed implementation and coordination to get right, and that inevitably takes people and resources.”

The Green party leader, Caroline Lucas, said that climate change should take priority over cuts. The Guardian

Lets conside the credentials of those speaking out against the Treasury:

Ed Miliband a total believer in the Church of Climatology, Gordon Brown’s right hand warming alarmist and the man who tried get the whole scam going again after the comdey show that was COP15.

Michael Jacobs was the chump behind Gordon Browns 50 Days to Save The World propaganda blooper.

Caroline Lucas, Britain’s sole Greentard MP is just an eco facist who wants to make her views law and god help anyone who disobeys wannable Fuhrer Lucas.

  1. Why don’t you send this Hune to Australia and join the new governments committee on climate change.
    Yes it is being considered to introduce a carbon tax price???? But they won’t have skeptics on it?

    It’s like the optic fibre debacle. It’s OK to spend 43 billion dollars on laying the cable, but that’s wholesale
    of course, they need the communications suppliers like Telstra to connect it from their present copper
    cable exchanges that they can’t techno wise? How long will the fibre cables be sitting there no one knows before the communications war ends. And some computers won’t be able to use it, anyway. And no one is taking up the options either, ie. free installation? Free installation to what?

    How is optic fibre going in UK, and how fast does one need to have a PC operate?

  2. Mark Steyn is counter sueing Michael Mann, and about time too. Read this on WUWT.
