New Fracking Process Uses No Water
The shale gas revolution has always met with hysterical opposition from the warming alarmists and the Green NGOs for the simple reason that shale gas will wipeout the uneconomic Green dreams of wind and solar power.
Unlike the Green renewables, shale gas is profitable without tax payer subsidies, provides lasting jobs and creates wealth and prosperity, as the shale gas revolution in the US has demonstrated.
Fracking has been met with the usual Green hysteria, lies and propaganda as was amply demonstrated by “Gasland” a Green anti-fracking documentary by Josh Fox that set out to prove that fracking contaminated ground water with methane by shooting footage of people setting fire to the water coming out of their taps.
The mere fact that the ground water had been contaminated with methane for decades before fracking ever started does not matter according to Fox, no surprises there then, facts have always been an irrelevance to a Green eco zealot spreading a new fear message. Read the rest of this entry
Britain Scraps Post 2020 Unilateral Climate Targets
This has been a very long time coming, but at last some sense is starting to prevail, and the rollback of the Green nightmare is starting in Britain.
George Osborne is refusing to sign up to new carbon emissions targets and insisting on a new ‘dash for gas’ as the Government prepares to unveil its latest energy plans. The Chancellor, backed by David Cameron, is understood to be determined not to commit Britain to tough new climate targets beyond 2020, arguing they will put businesses at a significant disadvantage.
Perhaps at last Osborne and Cameron have woken up to the dangers of economic disaster that greening an economy causes, EU member state Spain being a classic case of how to wreck an economy with renewables. Read the rest of this entry
British Chancellor Demands An End To Climate & Renewable Energy Targets
The collapse of the Green dream in Britain continues as Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne demands an end to the pointless destruction of industry and the economy by Climate and Renewables Energy targets.
Osborne upset the Green ecomentalists in October last year when at the Conservative Party conference he said: “We’re not going to save the planet by putting our country out of business“, which caused uprorar, not only amongst the self appointed Green gaulieters, but also within the Liberal Democrat segment of the lack lustre coalition government this country is stuck with until 2015.
There are obvious splits within the coalition government, never more so than between the Liberal dominated Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Treasury. Read the rest of this entry
Norfolk Police Close Climategate Investigation
Norfolk Police have been investigating Climategate, the leaking of emails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in November 2009.
Climategate did a huge amount of damage to the warming alarmists and the UN with their Agenda 21.
Now after 3 years Norfolk Police have closed their investigation into the leaking of the CRU emails: Read the rest of this entry
Spain To Tax Renewable Energy
Spain is another Euro zone economy in dire financial trouble, where the Government is pursuing austerity measures to try and regain control of the country’s spending.
The problems facing Spain are due in part to the Greening of the Spanish economy by the previous Socialist government, this has proved to the traditional socialist economic blunder with every Green job wiping out 2.2 jobs in conventional industries.
As the economic reality of the costs of Green subsidy hit home to the new Spanish Government, they decided, in January this year, to cut all Green subsidies for new renewables projects, a move that has effectively killed Green energy in Spain.
As usual the uneconomic wind and solar industries were being kept alive by Green subsidy, costing €7 billion a year and increasing the tariff deficit by €3 billion a year, in other words totally unaffordable. Read the rest of this entry
