The WWF Should Stick To Being eHarmony For Pandas
Posted by Tory Aardvark
The warming alarmists at the WWF are at it again, trying to stop the next generation of coal fired power stations being built.
As Britain freezes and industry and the elderly struggle to pay heating bills, its business as usual at the WWF, not a thought for anyone or anything but Climate Religion.
For some reason the WWF seem to think that 2500 signatures on a Petition to Dave is a victory
A couple of weeks ago we sent out an urgent email calling on our campaigners to ask David Cameron not to row back from his pre-election promise on green power.
We had a great response – nearly 2,500 of you sent messages to the Prime Minister in just a few days.
The policy in question is called the ‘emissions performance standard’ and it would set a legal limit on the amount of carbon dioxide a power station can emit. Set at the right level, this would prevent the most polluting power stations from being built, and encourage clean alternatives including renewable energy. This is essential – to hit our carbon targets we need emissions from the power sector to fall to a tenth of their current level in the next twenty years. And power stations built now will keep working for longer than that.
Last week, the government published their proposal for the emissions performance standard. Unfortunately, they are proposing to set the standard at a level that would still allow highly polluting coal and gas power stations to be built and is actually higher than current average emissions from electricity generation.
Total and blind adherence to the Church of Climatology, not one thought for costs and the impact on our struggling economy.
The government proposal is far too weak to stimulate the low carbon transformation we need to deal with climate change. The proposal is currently up for consultation – WWF will be submitting a response in the new year calling for a much more stringent standard.
The WWF and their vision of pre-industrial revolution Britain.
