COP19 Hosts Poland And The Green Standoff With The EU

COP19 hosts Poland are still refusing to take notice of pointless EU leading the way environmental legislation.

COP19 hosts Poland are still refusing to take notice of pointless EU leading the way Green economic suicide legislation

In the late 1940’s and early 1950’s there was a particularly¬† cringe making¬† genre of film called the Musical Western, these movies for a while were very popular, but eventually the camp clothing, the ludicrous plot lines proved too much for audiences, who drifted away from the fad.

Sounds familiar?

Well it should, in the last decade of the 20th Century and the first decade of the 21st Century there was a fad for Climate Religion where the same hair shirt clothing and ludicrous plot lines proved too much for the audience, who drifted away from the fad.

At least the Musical Western had the decency to just fade away from the screens, unlike the UN Climate Process which annually makes a spectacle of its continuing and agonizing death throes, last years event Fear and Loathing in Doha was one of the best Green disaster movies of all time, this year’s event in Poland is set to trump Doha in spades.

When Poland was chosen as COP19 hosts, at COP18 the wailing and whingeing from the Greens started and has continued unabated ever since.

CCS like all the Green Dream technologies is very expensive, requires huge tax payer funded subsidies and is the usual mix of environmental tokenism and gesture politics that so typifies the Greens.

Britain’s last CCS project was cancelled in October 2011 after the companies involved Scottish Power, Shell and the National Grid, pulled out citing funding issues, in short they wanted more Green subsidies to make the project financially viable, the typical refrain for all things Green, more taxes and ever increasing energy bills.

Never one to let anything deflect her from her Green Agenda, the EU’s unelected Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard and the other european Green fools held a contest to provide funding for CCS: Read the rest of this entry

Britain’s Last Carbon Capture And Storage Project Is Cancelled

Longannet CCS Project cancelled due to insufficient tax funds available

Britain’s last remaining Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project has been cancelled, because the major players in the project Scottish Power, Shell and the National Grid were concerned about the economic viability of the project without still more Green taxes on energy bills for electricity and gas.

Like all Green and approved Environmental based projects, they simply don’t work in the real world, without massive subsidies taxes on consumers. Read the rest of this entry
