Ed Miliband, Warming Alarmism And The EU Flight Ban

Empty airports if the insane EU flight ban takes hold

During his leadership campaign Ed Miliband constantly harped on about his support for the EU and Climate Change, and his record in government under Gordon Brown does confirm his support for these two dubious ideas.

Ed Miliband is supposed to represent a new direction and a fresh start for Labour, supposed to being the key word here, in reality what Labour now have is Gordon Brown MK2, younger, more polished and with interpersonal skills that Brown could not even dream of, but still the same desire for wealth redistribution and one world socialist government, and as always, firmly in the pockets of the Unions.

It was Ed Miliband who in the dying days of Gordon Browns regime tried to restart the Climate Change scam, it is this belief in the Church of Climatology and a desire to surrender more British sovereignty to the EU that makes Ed Miliband a bigger threat to Britain than the gurning Jonah from Fife ever was.

When the lunatics get together they tend to take over the asylum and this bit of insanity from the EU proves the point if you don’t pray at the Church of Climatology then your airline can’t fly into Europe.

Foreign airlines are threatened with a flight and landing ban from 2012 in the European Union if they do not participate in emissions trading.

The ban is proposed in an internal document by the EU Commission seen by Handelsblatt. Summarised on nine pages, the guidelines describe how such a ban could be implement. The Commission considers a flight and landing ban as a last resort to make the airlines surrender over its Emissions Trading Scheme.

The rest of the world has walked away from the AGW scam, Milibands beloved EU is going it alone and is trying in typical Green eco-facist ways to force its views on other countries.

An EU Directive stipulates that airlines from Europe and third countries are mandated to be included in the trading of emissions rights. On their flights to and from Europe, they may then only emit as much CO2 as the CO2 certificates they hold. 85 percent of the certificates are free of charge while 15 percent of the allowances have to bought via auctions.

“The whole project has not been thought through. The EU cannot impose its law on third countries,” Holger Krahmer, environmental spokesman for the German Liberal Party in the EU Parliament told Handelsblatt.

In fact, international resistance against the EU plan is growing. Several American, Asian and African airlines are suing the EU over its emissions trade project. The US Aviation Association ATA is attempting to have the policy suspended by the European Court of Justice. And the Russian government has also voiced its displeasure in Brussels.

The consequences for this country of Ed Miliband signing us up to more warming alarmism policies and giving up more powers to the EU dont bear thinking about.

“The EU has once again overestimated itself,” said Krahmer. “The project was not thought through. The EU cannot impose its legal authority on third countries.” H/T GWPF

The story ends with eco-mentalists trying to force their will on other sovereign nations, who would have thought that?
