Britain – Subsidies For On Shore Wind & Solar Will Be Gone By 2020
Prime Minister David Cameron, has at last woken up to the fact that the whole Green scam is not the vote winner it once was, Dave promised to lead the “Greenest Government Ever” and even went to the Arctic to bother huskies to underline his vision.
But that was 2006 and Climategate had yet to expose the junk scientists pushing the Anthropogenic Global Warming scam, so Dave like any other vote seeking politician, was advised that Britain had become a nation of Greentards, and there were votes in eating tofu, growing a beard, wearing sandals, banging a gong and barking at the moon.
But that was 2006, 2012 is very different time, the junk science of
the IPCC Greenpeace and WWF is no longer taken seriously by the majority, the sham of the Green economy has been exposed and the world now knows that there is no such thing as lasting Green jobs.
Spain is a classic example where a socialist led Government jumped on the global warming bandwagon and Greened their economy, the current banking crisis in Spain has been triggered by amongst other things, the eye watering amount of subsidies paid to Spanish wind and solar.
Opposition to wind farms in Britain has been growing, though always ignored by the warmists who continue to publish polls in the Guardian that always find that, 82% of Britons love wind farms and would willingly have a bird chopper in their back garden or neighbourhood.
Then at the end of May a High Court judged ruled that people’s rights were more important than Green Energy Targets, Dave was already under pressure from his backbench MPs, as well as, Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne who angered Greens and Liberals when he stated at the Conservative Party Conference that “We’re not going to save the planet by putting our country out of business“.
David Cameron and George Osborne are to come down firmly on the side of those who object to payments currently worth £400 million a year to companies who produce onshore wind, The Sunday Telegraph has learned.
Despite opposition from the Liberal Democrats, who strongly support more renewable energy, the subsidy regime for onshore wind and solar panels is now firmly expected to be phased out by the end of the decade.
A senior Conservative source said: “This is now very much the direction of travel.”
At present, householders pay for subsidies to renewable energy producers through an extra charge on household electricity bills.
An email sent by Oliver Letwin, the Cabinet Office minister, makes it clear that financial support both for onshore wind and solar panels is expected to have “disappeared” within eight years.
This is at best a start, at undoing the damage caused by the Greens and environmentalists to Britain’s economy, the cuts in reality should take effect no later than 2014, so the taxpayers and businesses of Britain do not have to keep paying the Green taxation to support the deeply flawed technologies of wind and solar for another 8 years.
