Different day, same tired old Green propaganda being pushed relentlessly by another unelected European Official, this time EU Commission President Jose Manual Barroso.
Barroso like other EU and Liberal Socialist politicians is still locked into the Green bubble, inconvenient truths like no warming for 16 years, the repetitive failure of UNFCCC cop meetings, the death of the one and only climate treaty, the Kyoto Protocol, the lack of a successor to Kyoto, the lack of populist support for bold climate measures are all ignored as the Green elite repeat their meaningless sound bites of Green drivel.
On this occasion the climate robot had a USB memory stick inserted with the sound bites: 2°C Warming, Green economy, Green jobs, emissions cut, 40%, control the weather (constrain warming) preloaded and then suitably prefixed with approved Greenspeak: Read the rest of this entry
It is no secret that the Green dream of wind and solar energy cannot survive without huge Green taxation in the form of subsidies on all energy bills, the minute that there is talk of subsidy cuts the whole renewables industry goes into meltdown, if you need proof just look at Big Wind in the USA screaming when the Wind Production Tax Credit (PTC) that subsidies American Wind looked like it would not be renewed, or Britain where solar energy companies are suing the Government for cutting the subsidies paid for electricity generated by solar panels.
Any industry that is based on tax payer subsidy is not a real economically viable business, it is little different from any nationalized enterprise or government department, funded by the bottom less pit of the tax payer wallet.
Wind and solar are expensive, heavily over subsidized by governments because they are supposedly Green, and like a junkie, will never kick their subsidy habit, if you need further proof then consider how many years wind farms have been kept alive by the PTC in the United States, which started in 1992.
A recent study of wind farms in Britain and Denmark has concluded that the operational life of a wind turbine is only 50% of that quoted by the manufacturers, with governments and energy planners basing their projections on 25 year life spans the cost of the wind farm has just doubled.
All these inconvenient truths about renewables are recognized by the warming alarmists who now want to factor in the cost of burning fossil fuels, that could have been used instead for petrochemicals, to make renewable energy look cheaper: Read the rest of this entry
Climate Change, Global Warming, whatever the ever changing scam is called today, it hardly figured in the US Presidential Election last year, though once re-elected Obama did mention Climate Change is his victory speech.
The mere mention of Climate Change by Obama has got the Greens all excited, dressed up and with nowhere to go, in the eyes on many environmentalists Obama failed his first Green test when he signed a law that prohibits US airlines from taking part in the now shelved EU Green flying tax.
At this stage of the disintegration of the Church of Climatology, drowning environmentalists with non rising sea levels are indulging in a fest of straw grabbing: Read the rest of this entry
There is always a danger that when repeating your own propaganda and lies, you brainwash yourself into believing your own lies.
Take for example the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), AOSIS is a coterie of 43 Island nations all cynically repeating the we must prevent a 2°C temperature rise, claiming that their islands are sinking beneath the non rising sea levels, and in the case of the Maldives planning a new airport to be in service long after the islands were allegedly going to disappear.
As COP18 grinds inexorably towards failure, the people attending refuse to acknowledge that there has been no warming for 16 years, a period longer than the warming period that underpins the whole Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle. Read the rest of this entry
This years UN Climate Circus meeting in Doha, COP18 is a very strange beast, there is distrust of the COP18 President, the host nations stance on Anthropogenic Global Warming, Kyoto and the Long term Cooperative Action (LCA) are coming to an end with no successors likely to emerge, the Green NGOs have found out that they are now largely peripheral to the whole process and the USA has said they will not commit economic suicide by signing up to a climate deal.
On November 26th the COP18 climate negotiators started work on agreeing the texts for the Ministers who fly in on December 3rd to hammer some sort of agreement out of, against this background of mutual distrust, the host nation Qatar wants to trash all the work done by the negotiators and produce new texts with selected ministers, behind closed doors.
Rewind to 2009 and COP15 Copenhagen, the then hosts Denmark did exactly what the Qataris propose and COP15 ended with arguments, no agreement and bitter disappointment for the outcome of Hopenhagen.
Only at COP18 against a background of distrust, loathing and division could the host nation use the very same tactic that helped to ensure that COP15 was a massive failure: Read the rest of this entry
