EU Energy Commissioner Calls EU 2030 Emissions Targets Stupid Or Arrogant

European Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger - "It is becoming increasingly questionable whether our pioneering activities can be financed when the rest of the world does not follow suit"

European Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger – “It is becoming increasingly questionable whether our pioneering activities can be financed when the rest of the world does not follow suit”

It is just one month into 2014 and the decline in the Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle within the European Union continues, this time with visible splits in the EU Commission on Energy.

European Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger has called the latest EU climate ambition for 2030 emissions targets “stupid or arrogant“, this is not the first time that Oettinger has broken ranks with the EU Green cabal. Last year Oettinger pointed out that there is no mileage in the leading the way with Green policies that kill jobs and make energy unaffordable, the rest of the world is not going to follow the EU’s lead and commit economic suicide.

The latest Green stupidity from the EU commission is to cut Greenhouse gas emissions 40% from 1990 levels by 2030, in plans announced last week. Read the rest of this entry

Stupid Is As Stupid Does: UK Guardian – Planet’s Atmosphere Is Half-Full Of Carbon

The UK Guardian had several extra helpings of stupid before plumbing new depths of compostable journalism.

The UK Guardian had several extra helpings of stupid before plumbing new depths of Green junk journalism.

The collapse of the warming alarmist industry continues unabated with one of the last bastions of the dying Climate Fad, the EU, failing to commit economic suicide at a suitably fast pace for environmentalists and Green NGO’s.

The immediate reaction for Liberals and Greens when their aspirations are not fully met and pandered to, is outrage; the problem with outrage is that being an intense emotion it clouds judgement, thinking and writing.

This latest piece from the Head of the Environment (has anyone told Gaia?) Damian Carrington at the Guardian falls in to just that category: Read the rest of this entry

The Classic Green Non Story – Coal Assets Could Be Halved If…..

Coal assets could be worth less than half of their current market value if the world agrees tougher climate targets according to a report by the bank HSBC

If is the middle word in life” said Marlon Brando’s character Colonel Kilgore in the movie Apocalypse Now.

Generations of computer programmers know If is a conditional, as in the conditional If, used in many programming languages, only in warming alarmist world are conditionals an absolute, where if and could, are actually synonyms for will.

When you couple this skewing of language with vested interests reporting on vested interests, you end up with the a classic Green non story like “Value of coal assets ‘could be halved’ if world goes low-carbon“.

Conditionals are of course based upon probability, and obviously there is a chance that the entire world could decide to believe the Green meme, leave fossil fuel reserves in the ground and decide to follow a dimly lit future based upon intermittent Green approved energy generation.

The big question, is it likely? Read the rest of this entry

A Week in Green Warming Alarmist World – Communism, Fear and Blame

The-Greens

If 2013 was the worst for the Big Green Machine since records began, then 2014 is rapidly shaping up to be an even worse year with the Green decline slipping into hyper drive as more politicians run away from the Green Agenda.

There have been far too many Green stories to write about all of them so here goes with a weekly roundup.

First off the blocks is Christiana Figueres head of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) who thinks that the only answer to stop the global warming that isn’t happening is Communism. Figueres is a long time communist and protegé of the late Hugo Chavez, and was among those that cheered Chavez’s infamous COP15 silent and terrible ghost in the room speech which referred to capitalism and democracy.

Being Green is all about blame and fear, blaming someone or something so that you have something to fear, bread and butter to the warming alarmist industry. So no surprises then in a new Green report they have finally decided on a country to blame for Global Warming Read the rest of this entry

Warmists Already Lowering Expectations For 2015 COP21 Agreement

The road map to COP21, note the beginning of the end of fossil fuel use scheduled for 2016.

The road map to COP21, note the beginning of the end of fossil fuel use scheduled for 2016.

There was a departure last year at COP19 with the warming alarmist industry scaling down the expectations of exactly what COP19 would achieve, which was just well, because in addition to being the 5th successive UNFCCC COP meeting in a row to crash and burn, COP19 showed the cracks appearing in the Green agenda.

All the Green NGOs and other self proclaimed representatives of civil society, walked out of the meeting when the western world refused to pay trillions of dollars in so called “Climate Justice” money. The cake was then truly iced with an awesome bout of name calling between Venezuela and the EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard, who blamed Hedegaard not only for the failure of COP19, but also COP15.

The spectre of COP15 haunts the warming alarmist pysche, the high water mark of Green ambition, it has all been downhill since 2009.

So ingrained into the Green collective memory is COP15, they now believe that politicians will not reach a meaningful deal because they are frightened of having another COP15 debacle at COP21. Read the rest of this entry

Ousted Maldives President – Climate Denying Conservatives Risk Irrelevancy

The much used COP15 propaganda picture of the Maldives Government holding a cabinet meeting underwater to push the rising sea level lie

The much used COP15 propaganda picture of the Maldives Government holding a cabinet meeting underwater to push the rising sea level lie

One of the poster boys for the Green Liberal warming alarmists has slithered out from under his stone to warn that Climate Change denying Conservatives risk becoming irrelevant, a fate that is currently befalling warming alarmists at an ever increasing rate.

Nasheed was the poster boy of the warming alarmist movement, a shrewd politician who saw that rich western Liberals wanted to give money away to fight the fantasy of man made climate change, so Nasheed played them to the hilt by claiming the Maldives were sinking due to rising sea levels, even though globally sea levels have been receding for at least the last 10 years as  Envisat data showed.

The warming alarmists and mesmerized politicians took Nasheed to their hearts, British Prime Minister David Cameron once described Nasheed as “my new best friend“,  since the coup there has been an attempt to raise Nasheed to being a minor deity,  they even made a film eulogizing  Nasheed  “The Island President.

When he was deposed Nasheed claimed I was ousted by Climate Change Deniers, Read the rest of this entry

Future EU Climate Policy – Environmentalists Are Horrified

Polar Vortex was cause of the bitter winter of 1812 which hindered Napoleon's long retreat from Russia. Now 200 years later Napoleon's successors, the EU are in full retreat on their Climate Policy.

Polar Vortex was cause of the bitter winter of 1812 which hindered Napoleon’s long retreat from Russia. Now 200 years later Napoleon’s successors, the EU are in full retreat on their Climate Policy.

The 20th century successors to the failed dictator Napoleon Bonaparte, the EU are having their retreat from Moscow moment, as EU Climate Policy comes apart, quite literally at the seams.

The Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard, Greens, Liberals and other beneficiaries of the warming alarmist industry are pushing hard for binding targets for renewable energy for 2030, while on the other side of the argument countries, industry and politicians are against binding targets.

Just before the UNFCCC COP19 climate circus in Warsaw last year, Hedegaard sort of admitted that the EU Climate Policy was not supported by all member states and that some countries are no longer taking part, for example the Czech Republic and Poland, the COP19 hosts. Poland is currently involved in a legal standoff with the EU, which if the EU lost would totally destroy EU Climate Policy in a single stroke. Read the rest of this entry

The Green Stupidity Of David Cameron

Call Me Dave suspects that the recent storms that have hit the UK are linked to Global Warming but he is not sure. So why say anything?

Call Me Dave suspects that the recent storms that have hit the UK are linked to Global Warming but he is not sure. So why say anything?

Green stupidity still occasionally holds sway at the highest levels of government in some countries in the EU, as was amply demonstrated by British Prime Minister David Cameron in the House of Commons yesterday.

Fortunately not all countries in the EU are saddled with politicians who are nothing more than molluscs, liberally dipped in snake oil, The Czech Republic and Poland for example, have politicians who long ago decided being Green was stupid and have since put the interests of their citizens ahead of trying to earn personal Green credentials on the world stage.

In the run up to the General Election in 2010 which Cameron failed to win, one of Cameron’s big spin lines was that, He (Cameron) was the natural heir to Tony Blair, yep truly something to aspire to being, a socialist war monger, can there be any higher aspirational goal?

Cameron blows hot and cold on the Climate Change boondoggle, during the COP19 fiasco in Warsaw last November Cameron was allegedly wandering about muttering darkly about “Green crap” in response to rising consumer anger about energy prices, and the ever increasing cost of renewable energy subsidies.

Yesterday was obviously a hot day for Global Warming in Cameron world Read the rest of this entry

Now About The Coming Ice Age

The MV Akademik Shokalskiy aka Ship of Fools icebound in Antartica. Expedition leader Chris Turney apart from being a warming alarmist scientist also has business interests in a company called Carbonscape which promotes Green products.

The MV Akademik Shokalskiy aka Ship of Fools icebound in Antartica. Expedition leader Chris Turney apart from being a warming alarmist scientist also has business interests in a company called Carbonscape which promotes Green products.

The whole world has had a chance to have a long laugh at the antics of a bunch of warming alarmists scientists and Green propagandists from the BBC and The Guardian getting trapped in Antarctic sea ice.

The stupidity and religious belief in their own propaganda got these Green fools into a mess of their own making, which has happily ended with no loss of life or injury, just a huge amount of carbon pollution from dirty ships bunker fuel, and aviation emissions from the Chinese helicopter that rescued the fools.

The explanations as to why the ice was so thick have ranged from the ludicrous “Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change but here it is building up“, once the global laughter had died down Turney admitted it was weather not climate that had caused the huge build up in Antarctic sea ice.

So the big question is are we headed for a new ice age? Read the rest of this entry
