When the news of the shale gas find near Blackpool broke, the usual suspects of Chris Huhne, Caroline Lucas and the unelected NGO’s were in uproar that a viable, affordable source of energy had been found to rival the approved Green and heavily subsidised renewables that are a corner stone of Climate Religion.
Huhne’s immediate response to the mention of shale gas was to recommend that people see Gasland, a warming alarmist tissue of lies masquerading as a serious unbiased documentary about fracking in the USA.
Just 3 weeks ago Huhne was saying that shale gas exploration would be halted if there were any danger of his sacred Green emissions targets being in danger:
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.
The Greenest Government ever has developed an interesting tactic with the increasing number of climb-downs on Climate Religion policy, there is a lot of noise about being devoutly Green and then very quietly the policy is abandoned or put on ice: Read the rest of this entry
The Greenest Government ever is not that Green according to warming alarmist Daman Carrington at the Guardian, and the villain of the peace is once again Chancellor of The Exchequer, George Osborne.
George Osborne’s statement that Britain will not go it alone committing economic and energy security suicide has caused righteous indignation amongst the Greens, Environmentalists and unelected NGO’s like Greenpeace, WWF and FoE, whose dream of pre Agricultural Revolution Britain is fading faster each day as the economic reality check of no money bites hard.
The reality bites hard for all people living in the real world, if however you are Green Environmentalist, then nothing can stand in the way of the Green agenda otherwise an NGO like Greenpeace might become outraged and that would be terrible, to ignore an unelected minority group with a political agenda carefully wrapped in junk science.

There are some questions to be answered about Chris Huhne’s explanation that ever rising prices for gas and electricity are mainly caused by fossil fuel costs, with only a tiny fraction of the increases supporting the massive
susbidies taxes on everyone’s energy bills.
Wholesale energy prices peaked in 2008, and then fell back at the end of 2009, retail energy prices however after a slight fall stayed well above the 2008 peak, there were modest increases in wholesale price, last year and this year, but wholesale prices today, are well below the 2008 peak.
Fossil fuel prices have fallen, yet Huhne maintains that ever rising fossil fuel prices are the cause of all time high energy bills: Read the rest of this entry
2700 people will die this winter because of fuel poverty, that is more than lose their lives in traffic accidents in an entire year.
In Britain fuel poverty is defined as spending 10% or more of disposable income on gas and electricity, between 2005 – 2010 the cost of keeping warm in winter has doubled and there are now more than 6 million households in energy poverty.
A report on fuel poverty commissioned by the government found that if just 10% of winter deaths were caused by fuel poverty then 2700 people will die: Read the rest of this entry
Yesterday Cameron and Huhne stage managed a summit with the big 6 energy companies as the fall guys for the recent massive increases in the costs of gas and electricity, the increased costs were of course nothing to do with the Green taxes and other carbon taxing lunacy.
Huhne took time off from telling consumers they were lazy in not switching tariffs to say that the cost of Green policies to families was only £20 a year, when most estimates from a range of sources put the real cost at £100 a year minimum.
The future for energy costs and the financial outlook for Britain is grim, and the more wind farms there are the worse it will get: Read the rest of this entry
This last week has been disastrous for the warming the alarmists in Britain, this is the week that the political consensus on the ManBearPig religion of Al Gore, Chris Huhne and Connie Hedegaard died in Britain.
The never ending energy price rises have been blamed on world fossil fuel prices by Chris Huhne and the renewables energy lobby, the huge tax payer subsidies for renewable energy and the ludicrous feed in tariffs are of course, according to Huhne only adding a small amount to household enerygy bills.
A number of other organisations disagree, including David Cameron’s own advisors and now a survey by a price comparison web site gives the real impact of Huhne’s Green madness: Read the rest of this entry
George Osborne’s statement that Britain will not go it alone committing economic and energy security suicide has so far been met with little comment from the warming alarmists, apart from a couple of lack lustre articles from the Guardian about missing Conservative tree huggers, silence is the order of day.
Chris Huhne has been quieter than an eco mouse in the Church of Climatology, as Huhne’s plans for Agricultural Revolution Britain blow away like so much dust in the wind.
Huhne is doubtless plotting some investigation in to how “Big Gas” got at George Osborne, but the reality that Huhne knows all to well is that Osborne will have the final say on shale gas and Huhne’s plans for Green economic suicide: Read the rest of this entry
Chris Huhne is a dangerous liability says Dr Benny Peiser, Director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation in an interview with Energy Live News:
“Chris Huhne has become a dangerous liability for the government. His unpopular green energy policy is adding to rising energy bills, which represent a serious problem for the government.
“If Chris Huhne has his way, Britons will be forced to subsidise renewable energy by approximately £120billion in the next 20 years. Electricity prices are likely to double as a direct result. As a result, many manufacturing firms will either go bankrupt or relocate.
“This is politically and economically unsustainable. It is no surprise that a recently leaked letter by David Cameron’s energy advisers described Huhne’s analysis as “unconvincing” and warned that his green obsession will hit consumers hard.”
With the UN COP17 Climate Religion synod due to start in just over 2 months, now is a good time to review what Attila the Huhnatic has been up to since COP16 ended in failure: Read the rest of this entry
Here we go again, wind farm owners being paid 10 times what they would have been paid if the bird choppers had been operating, £120k to generate electricity for 8.5 hours, £1.2 million for generating nothing.
As more and more households in Britain slide into energy poverty the Greenest government ever continues to shape its energy policies on junk science. Read the rest of this entry
The Greenest Ever Dave is a very worried man, very worried, because the Climate Religion he bought into is in ruins, the Climate Religion that David Cameron believed he could derive some political gain from has crashed and burned.
Cameron and Huhne were warned by the Confederation of British Industry that their Green energy policies were killing jobs and the recovery, Cameron and Huhne ignored them; next the Manufacturers Association issued a similar warning, and again Cameron and Huhne were deaf.
Now the Greenest Ever Dave is very worried because one of his senior political advisers is saying what many bloggers and journalists have been saying for the last year: Read the rest of this entry
