Shale Gas – Britain’s Government Undoing The Lies Of Chris Huhne
The sheer farce of Britain’s
Coalition Vichy Government has never been more clearly demonstrated than by this story.
If only David Cameron had cojones 10% of the size of Maggie Thatcher’s then Britain would not have this sorry sham of a Government, Cameron should have formed a minority government and got on with the job, instead the Green lobotomized heir to Tony Blair formed a coalition with Little Nicky Clegg and his Liberal Democrats. A Coalition that is at odds with itself, instead of a unified approach to all policies from both parties, certain policies are run exclusively by the Conservatives, others by the Liberal Democrats, which gives little impression of cohesion, and can have disastrous consequences for the country, a case in point being Climate and Energy Policy.
When the Coalition was formed Liberal Democrat Green ideologue and soon to be convicted criminal Chris Huhne was appointed to run the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
Once upon a time Huhne was a serious heavyweight politician who put his not inconsiderable energies into forcing the Green Agenda on Britain, a devout believer in the Church of Climatology, Huhne had a vision of a Britain besmirched by 32000 wind turbines, fleets of electric vehicles and a zero carbon economy.
Shale Gas and fracking really put the wind up Huhne, who knew that cheap affordable energy would spell the end for his symbols of Green energy folly, wind turbines and solar panels, so Huhne set about weaving a tissue of lies about fracking and shale gas.
First off Huhne decided that Shale Gas was not going to happen in Britain because of the sacred Carbon Targets:
The UK’s “dash for gas” will be halted by the government because if unchecked it would break legally binding targets for carbon dioxide emissions, Chris Huhne, energy and climate change secretary, said on Monday evening. “We will not consent so much gas plant so as to endanger our carbon dioxide goals,” he told a fringe meeting at the Liberal Democrats party conference in Birmingham.
Huhne normally so on the ball missed a trick with the carbon targets, the public had lost interest in the never ending stories of climate doom and gloom and thus the political will for carbon targets had started to falter.
Then as the economy continued to tank and energy prices continued to spiral ever upward Huhne resorted to that old favorite weapon of the Greens, fear.
The Greens produced a documentary on fracking called Gasland, a carefully crafted piece of lies, misinformation and Green propaganda Gasland was recommended by Hune:
“I recommend you look at the film Gasland, which is a bit of a wake-up call,” Huhne said. “There are some extremely alarming pictures of people setting fire to their taps because of methane gas bubbling up.”
The methane that Huhne was referring to had contaminated ground water for years before fracking ever started, Huhne of course knew about this, and the many other lies that Gasland propagated.
Now on the verge of a huge energy boom, Britain has the biggest shale gas reserves anywhere in the world, the government is having to spend time, money and energy to dispel the lies of Huhne and the Green NGOs like Greenpeace, WWF and FoE.
Britain’s energy secretary on Wednesday advocated a public awareness campaign to promote shale gas and dispel the “myths” surrounding fracking, the controversial method for unlocking the natural gas.
The U.K. is hoping to replicate the success in the U.S., the only country so far to produce shale gas in large commercial quantities. The industry has dramatically reduced U.S. dependence on energy imports.
Last month the British Geological Survey estimated that Britain holds larger amounts of shale gas than previously estimated. In 2011, shale exploration was banned in Britain after the first–and so far only–fracking operation, run by Cuadrilla in Lancashire in northwestern England, set off earth tremors.
Even though the ban has now been lifted, operations have yet to resume. Many Britons remain concerned about fracking, which involves blasting shale formations with a mixture of water chemicals.
Opposition to fracking has been more vocal in Europe than in the U.S. Critics say that besides causing earthquakes, it could pollute ground water, damage wells and lead to emissions of methane gas.
It is one sorry Government that has to brief against one of its former ministers to enable an energy and economic boom that will help restore Britain’s finances.
