Green Energy Bill Shelved – Another Defeat For Chris Huhne
Posted by Tory Aardvark
June 22nd 2011 was a black day for the Church of Climatology in Europe when Poland put a stop to the EU’s economic suicide plan for the 2050 energy road map, then on July 5th 2011 the EU Parliament voted against increasing carbon emissions cuts to 30% from 1990 levels.
While for Chris Hune June 22nd was a “Dark day for Europe“, Huhne has subsequently dropped off the radar since Essex Police raided his ex-wife’s home and took away his sons mobile phone.
Today the Green Energy Bill has been shelved, legislation that Huhne has staked his personal reputation on:
The government’s energy bill, which was expected to be debated before parliament’s summer break, has been shelved. That means the “green deal”, the flagship scheme to cut domestic carbon emissions, will not make it onto the statute books for many months. Ministers at the Department for Energy and Climate Change (Decc) have lost their argument with the government’s business managers, and the centrepiece of climate change policy has been sidelined.
We should not be surprised. This government has form in delay and dither when it comes to its green policy agenda. There was so much promise. The “greenest government ever” was the prime minister’s pledge. That’s the same PM who has not mentioned green issues since the election. When asked questions on petrol prices or energy bills he does not ever venture into the wider discussion about a greener, cleaner world. And since Chris Huhne was appointed as climate and energy secretary we have seen promises delayed and initiatives re-announced so often it’s not surprising if you’ve lost count.
David Cameron is an astute politician who once believed, before Climategate, that there were votes in being Green; Cameron still believed that in May 2010 when he formed the Coalition Government in Britain, but then that was before Obama quietly dropped his “settled science” of Climate Religion.
Cameron pays lip service to the worn out phrase “Greenest Government Ever” but in reality he allows Chris Huhne and Greg Barker to be the Green evangelists, while Cameron keeps the whole Climate Religion thing at arms length.
The fact that the green deal is not going to make it to the statute books marks a personal failure for Huhne. He has staked his reputation on this market-driven home energy efficiency model. His claim that it will transform the energy efficiency of our homes (which represent around 27% of emissions nationally) and create thousands of green jobs up and down the country is fizzling away
There never were any real Green jobs in Britain or most of the world come to that.
Chris Huhne’s future is far from secure, Aardvark has it on very good authority that Nick Clegg is tired of the never ending press stories about Huhne and the speeding points saga; Huhne is also under investigation for election expenses “irregularities“.
There is a definite campaign to “get” Chris Huhne, abandoning a policy that your Climate Change Minister has staked his personal reputation is hardly a portent of great things to come for Huhne’s political career, more a case of making sure that if Huhne is charged by Essex Police that there is nothing contaminated by Huhne on the statute books and thus linked to David Cameron.
Meanwhile Huhne is about to break his silence with a new fear angle to keep people in the Church of Climatology with a speech that Climate Change makes wars more likely.
The content is the same old lies and grey propaganda, rehashed and mostly built around Sir David King’s 2004 statement that Climate Change was a bigger threat than Global Terrorism.
Fear is all that the Church of Climatology have left, all their grey propaganda about the vast majority of people being behind EU Climate
Religion Policy were just lies, as the democratic process has proved.
With Huhne in the political wilderness and Poland having the rolling Presidency of the EU for the next 6 months, the economic future is looking brighter by the day.
