David Cameron And The Green Backlash

The solar industry and WWF whinge about not getting their hands on more tax payers money

David Cameron faces a Green backlash from the cuts of the ludicrously generous (42p per KwH) feed in tariff for solar energy trumpets the independent and various other mouthpieces for Green propaganda.

Described by Climate Minister Greg Barker as morally wrong, the feedin tariffs are due to be cut from December 12th 2011, and not before time with 6 millions households facing energy poverty it is indeed morally wrong to expect every household in the country to provide the funding and risk removal from the economically unviable Renewables Industry.

The backlash apparently consists of 55 individuals and groups with a vested interest in getting their hands on taxpayers money for risk free profits or pushing their Green Marxist agenda, organised by Friends of The Earth and the Cut Dont Kill campaign, it must be said that 55 entities hardly constitutes much of a backlash:

A letter by a broad alliance – from the Federation of Small Businesses and house-building organisations to council leaders from all three political parties, as well as the Town and Country Planning Association – has been organised by Friends of the Earth and the Cut Don’t Kill campaign, which is pressing for the Government to temper the reforms. Mr Cameron and Chris Huhne, the Energy and Climate Change Secretary, are also under pressure from the Confederation of British Industry, whose chief, John Cridland, said the measure was an “own goal”. Mr Huhne has also been warned that 20 Liberal Democrat MPs – more than a third of the parliamentary party – are fighting the proposals.

In scathing language, the letter tells Mr Cameron: “This could only knock confidence in the UK’s determination to build a low-carbon economy and hugely undermine your determination to lead the ‘greenest Government ever’.”

The cut in the feedin tariff from 43p per KwH to 21p per KwH means that it will now take double the time for solar panel installations to get their money back.

The best summary of the whole feedin tariff scam and the huge sums of money being made by a few at everyone else’s expense comes from one of the comments:

Looking strictly at the PV deal, it was wildly overgenerous. My Dad has installed as many of these as he can on any roof he can – For a £12,000 outlay, he gets free electric and a £1400 tax free payment, from HM Government, per year, per roof, for 25 years – It pays back about £70,000 over the 25 year period – much better than any pension plan available…… and where does the overgenerous award money come from?…. Tax revenue.

  3. sounds like some sort of Green S&M thing, Greenbacklash 😀

  4. Now Obama is in Oz, spouting how much we need the USA and we should sell our Uranium
    to India. Then have more American bases, but he forgot to tell Julia that the Hawaii wind turbines are defunct. I wonder why? Burst the Carbon bubble perhaps.

  5. bet there are around 250 million Americans that are real glad that Obama is not the US

    • You absolutely biased moron
      man made global warming a scam. i didnt think it was possible for one man to be so stupid barring a few people but here ou are proving me wrong, we need solar energy regardless of global warming, fossil fuels are on their last legs and wont be around for much longer, we need solar energy to get as close to a sustainable energy source as we can so that when they do run out (and they will or do you not believe that either ?) we are prepared with an energy supply which can help us cope !
