Ed Miliband “I Like Wind Farms – Vote Labour”
Posted by Tory Aardvark
From the outset Anthropogenic Global Warming was always an attractive political outlook for those on the left of the political spectrum, the anti capitalists, hippies, tree huggers, bunny botherers, politicians and the water walkers of the Green NGOs, in short AGW was always going to be big hit for those who go through life with a chest full of unexplored ideas as the core of their belief, or politically expedient, belief system.
Prior to COP15 and Climategate there was no political doubt about Man Made Climate Change, however the timely release of emails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) from the University of East Anglia (UEA) showed exactly what the so called climate scientists were up too, producing science to match a previously declared political intention called Agenda 21.
Since COP15 endled in failure the whole UN AGW boondoggle has continued to decline, the relentless failed predictions of environmental disaster and 16 years of no warming have continued to erode the political impetus that the Climate Change agenda once had.
As Climate Change has dropped off the mainstream global political agenda, so once again the left are donning their free trade sustainable ethically manufactured Green armour and getting back into the fear and doom scenarios so beloved by the Green environmental movement.
A case in point is the
strange egg creature from Fraggle Rock Leader of Her Majesty’s opposition strange egg creature from Fraggle Rock that goes by the name of Ed Miliband:
Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party, will today call on the government to commit to the 2030 de-carbonisation target.
In a speech at Whitelee Wind Farm in Scotland, he will criticise the Government for throwing away the massive opportunities presented by the green economy and betraying its promises on the environment.
And Mr Miliband will declare that wind energy is good for Scotland and the UK showing that – by tackling climate change together – we can be better off together.
The 2030 carbon target amounts to little more than the de-industrialisation of Britain and an even greater reliance on heavily tax payer subsidised intermittent Green energy.
The cost of energy bills will continue to increase because of the Green subsidies for wind and solar, with energy bills rising a further £178 to keep paying rich land owners and foreign energy companies even more money, than they are already grabbing from the Green trough.
The Britain tackling climate change line is one of the most stupid lies that is relentlessly pontificated by the Greens, at 1.6% of global CO2 emissions Britain is irrelevant in global terms, thus tackling climate change is a political gesture paid for by families in energy poverty, jobs lost and an increasing cost of living so Green socialists can feel good and hope the rest of the world will follow Britain’s lead and commit economic suicide.
Australia has introduced a carbon tax that is causing massive economic problems, still Gillard and her Green coalition morons are leading by example, an example the rest of the world has yet to follow.
“Other countries around the world are watching to see whether Britain signs up to the 2030 decarbonisation target. We are not getting leadership from this government in Westminster. All we get is dither and delay.
“Today, I am calling on the Government to commit in the energy bill to the 2030 de-carbonisation target. That is what I would do if I was in Downing Street now and that is what this Prime Minister – who once flew halfway across Europe to hug a huskie – should do.
Ed Miliband was a major player in warming alarmism in the disastrous Labour government of Gordon Brown where post COP15 Miliband worked hard to keep the AGW scam alive.
The bad news for those hoping for a 2030 carbon target, is that DECC now say there will not be one:
A decarbonisation target for the sector, which many, including the Committee on Climate Change and Labour leader, Ed Miliband had called for, will not be included in this Energy Bill.
Instead, DECC has said that the decision on whether to ‘set a range for carbon emissions in 2030’ will be taken when the Committee on Climate Change has ‘provided advice in 2016 on the 5th Carbon Budget which will cover the corresponding period (2028-2033), and once the government has set that budget’.
Miliband is an enthusiastic
supporter enforcer for wind farms:
Opposition to wind farms should become as socially unacceptable as failing to wear a seatbelt, Ed Miliband, the climate change secretary, has said.
Speaking at a screening in London of the climate change documentary The Age of Stupid, Miliband said the government needed to be stronger in facing down local opposition to wind farms.
He said: “The government needs to be saying, ‘It is socially unacceptable to be against wind turbines in your area – like not wearing your seatbelt or driving past a zebra crossing’.”
