Most British Wind Farms Are Net CO2 Emitters

Large British wind farms will actually release as much carbon dioxide as fossil-fuel power plants, according to a study conducted by researchers from Aberdeen University

Large British wind farms will actually release as much carbon dioxide as fossil fuel power plants, conclusions of a new study conducted by researchers from Aberdeen University

Wind farms are another of the Greens zero CO2 mirages, naturally the emissions produced during the manufacture of the turbine are ignored, as are the emissions of the fossil fueled coal or gas power station that has to be on standby for when the intermittency problem happens.

A new study by researchers from Aberdeen University has uncovered yet another problem with CO2 emissions and wind farms, this time it is the land that wind farms are built upon that is the source of massive amounts of CO2 being released.

Around of 50% of English onshore wind farms are built on peat bogs or peat based land, in Scotland the total is even higher at 66%: Read the rest of this entry

Chris Huhne Disgraced Liberal Democrat Climate Change Secretary Goes To Jail

December 2011 Liberal Democrat Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne planned to force 32000 more monuments to Green stupidity on Britain, today Huhne starts an 8 month jail sentence.

December 2011 Liberal Democrat Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne planned to force 32000 more monuments to Green stupidity on Britain, today Huhne starts an 8 month jail sentence.

The man at the heart of forcing the Green Agenda on Britain, is today in prison starting an 8 month jail sentence for the crime of Perverting the Course of Justice.

The fall of Liberal Democrat Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne has been at the speed of sound, this is one occasion when the well worn expression “crashed and burned” really does mean burnt twisted wreckage, in this case Huhne’s now non existent political career, his reputation, his credibility and his relationship with his children.

Prior to suddenly pleading guilty just before his trial was due to start Huhne continually lied about being guilty, he used every trick in the book to keep the case out of court and gag any reporting of the proceedings, which makes Huhne’s mea culpa moment on Channel 4 News tonight look all the more cynical, with Huhne already having an eye on his post prison career moves.

Huhne’s ex-wife Vicky Pryce was also sentenced today, she too received an 8 month prison sentence for Perverting the Course of Justice: Read the rest of this entry

EDF Energy To Sue Environmentalists Over Power Station Sit-in

Green protestors from the group No Dash For Gas closed the West Burton power station for 8 days in November 2012.

Green protestors from the group No Dash For Gas closed the West Burton power station for 8 days in November 2012.

Last November 21 members of the No Dash For Gas sect of the Church of Climatology organized a sit-in at the West Burton power station in Nottinghamshire, which caused the power station to shut down for 8 days.

The Guardian proclaimed them Green heroes, and posted the usual fawning and sycophantic articles that are reserved only for noble Green activists, in fact today the Guardian has a video produced by No Dash For Gas which shows how to occupy a power station.

It is not easy being Green as the saying goes, it can also be very expensive being Green, as most energy bill payers now know from the real cost of Green renewable energy on their bills.

It is however about to get eye wateringly expensive to be Green if you occupy power stations: Read the rest of this entry

Ed Davey “Climate Change Science Is Irrefutable”

Liberal Democrat Climate Fool Ed Davey believes that Climate Science if irrefutable.

Liberal Democrat Climate Fool Ed Davey believes that Climate Science is irrefutable.

This would be funny, or possibly just plain boring if it were one of the usual Green suspects like Ban Ki-Moon, Connie Hedegaard, Christiana Figueres or one the banshee wailing NGO’s, instead it is a British Government minister who has a very big say in the energy mix and energy security of Britain.

Ed Davey is the replacement Liberal Democrat Climate Change secretary in the lack lustre coalition government that is currently compounding the damage done to the country by the previous Labour Regime of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

Davey’s predecessor as Climate Change secretary, Liberal Democrat Chris Huhne has gone, guilty of the serious crime of Perverting the Course of Justice, Huhne is currently awaiting what is most likely a custodial prison sentence.

Huhne in his day was a formidable politician, a devout member of the Church of Climatology, at the annual UN Climate Circus meetings Huhne could usually be found with his nose up Connie Hedegaard’s butt, busily trying to give away more money that Britain did not have.

Davey by comparison to Huhne is a glove puppet, more akin to one operated by a limp wristed puppeteer come to think of it, Davey is a political lightweight so it is not surprising he should choose to make his irrefutable science claims to an audience of the converted: Read the rest of this entry

Scotland’s Green Dream Subsidized By England & Wales

Energy bill payers in England and Wales are subsidizing Alec Salmond's Green Dream.

Energy bill payers in England and Wales are subsidizing Alec Salmond’s Green Dream of 100% renewable energy for Scotland by 2020

Scotland is due to hold a referendum on independence from the rest of the United Kingdom in the fall of 2014, the result of which has got the Greens and crony capitalists very worried, because it transpires that the vast majority of the Green subsidies on energy bills for Scottish renewables comes from south of the border.

Scotland’s First Minister Alec Salmond’s plan for 100% renewables for Scotland by 2020 would be doomed if the Scottish people vote for independence, because Scotland alone cannot afford the Green stupidity of Alec Salmond.

Energy specialists from 4 universities are warning Salmond of the Green consequences if Scotland decides to become fully independent: Read the rest of this entry

Second Wind Turbine Falls Down In South West England

Last week a wind turbine in Broadworthy,, Devon collapsed in a 50mph hour wind, now  a second bird choppers has collapsed 18 miles away in Cornwall.

Last week a wind turbine in Broadworthy, Devon collapsed in a 50 mph hour wind, now a second bird chopper has collapsed 18 miles away in Cornwall.

Last weekend a wind turbine collapsed at Broadworthy, Devon in a 50 mph wind, although the wind turbine is supposed to be resilient to wind speeds more than twice as fast as this.

Now a second bird chopper has come crashing down 18 miles away in Cornwall on the family farm of a Lib Dem councillor, the Lib Dems you may recall from their last party conference were the only major political party in Britain, to still believe in Climate Religion, so it is no surprise to find Green crony capitalism being practiced by one of their number.

The collapse of 2 symbols of Green tokenism within a week have put health and safety pressures on an industry already under attack for besmirching landscapes and costing billions in Green subsidies for energy bill payers.

Investigations into the cause of the Broadworthy turbine have found bolts missing from the base which is leading to an attempted damage limitation exercise where the dark deeds of sabotage are being mooted as a possible cause of the collapse. Read the rest of this entry

Bald Eagle’s Nest And Habitat Destroyed For Wind Farm

Wind Turbines are not called bird choppers for nothing, every year across the planet millions of bird are killed by wind farms.

This video shot just 3 days ago, shows that the only Green in wind farms is the colour of money, watch as the tree containing the Bald Eagles nest is cut down with the birds still in it.

The Bald Eagle is both protected and rare in Ontario, yet this counts for nothing as Green renewable energy is involved, the birds, just collateral damage and martyrs for the Green cause.

At the end of the video it says SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME which does not even get close.

Wind Turbine Fail, Service Life Is Just 50% Of That Quoted By The Wind Industry

Latest peer reviewed study proves that the life of a bird chopper is 10 - 15 years not the 20 -25 years spun by the renewables industry and used by politicians.

Latest peer reviewed study proves that the life of a bird chopper is 10 – 15 years not the 20 -25 years spun by the renewables industry and used by politicians for planning.

The case against wind turbines was already proven, intermittency or the inability to provide and meet demand for electricity is bad enough, as is the problem for renewables that they need to have a fossil fuel or nuclear power station on standby because of the intermittency issue, now a peer reviewed study by the Renewable Energy foundation has disclosed another major failing of wind power, the turbines actual serviceable life in roughly half that of the life span quoted by the manufacturers.

The study was carried out by Professor Gordon Hughes of the University of Edinburgh, one of Britain’s leading energy and environmental economists, using years of data from wind farms in both Britain and Denmark.

The findings are yet another embarrassment for the whole Green renewable energy boondoggle and has serious financial implications for energy bill payers who are already propping up the renewables industry via the ever increasing Green subsidies on energy bills: Read the rest of this entry

Ed Miliband “I Like Wind Farms – Vote Labour”

Ed Miliband “Opposition to wind farms should become as socially unacceptable as failing to wear a seatbelt.”

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: Read the rest of this entry

Eco Sheep In The Cooling Towers

Shepherd Trouble is, sheep are very dim. Once they get an idea in their ‘eads, there’s no shiftin’ it.

Tourist: But where did they get the idea?

Shepherd: From Harold. He’s that most dangerous of creatures, a clever sheep.

The Shepherd is actually wrong the most dangerous sheep are eco sheep, they have an idea in their heads which is also their belief system, a few sound bytes of Green rhetoric as slogans and its off to the power station or oil rig to cause disruption of production, as the Greens demonstrate for what they ludicrously call the public interest.

On Monday a group of 30 eco sheep occupied a new gas power station at West Burton in Nottinghamshire, 15 of the eco sheep climbed 2 of the chimneys and setup camp with enough supplies they claim, to last them for a week.

The whole incident has passed off largely unnoticed by the MSM with the exception of the Guardian which carried a post from one of the eco sheep in Comment is Free: Read the rest of this entry
