A new analysis of government and industry figures of Britain’s wind industry by the Daily Telegraph has shown yet again that these pointless monuments to Green folly are not only still economically unviable, but also, the Green lie about all the jobs that will be created, is exposed for the naked bare faced lie that it is, as one operator of multiple wind farms admits that wind farms are not labour intensive.
The Great Man Made Global Warming scare was always a political agenda embraced by the left, so it is no surprise to learn that this patently ludicrous system of Green subsidy known as Renewables Obligation was the brain child of Britain’s worst Prime Minister in 200 years, Gordon Brown and his then Green sock puppet Ed Miliband.
The Renewables Obligation is added to energy bills and paid for by every household and employer in the country, forcing families and the most vulnerable into energy poverty, pushing up employers costs and killing jobs, all to support an energy generation system that is intermittent and requires fossil fuel power stations on 24/7 standby for when intermittency strikes.

One of the reasons the Greens use to justify the billions in wasted subsidies for wind and solar power is Green jobs, though as usual with the warming alarmists lasting Green jobs, like Anthropogenic Global Warming is just another fiction.
The US House of Representatives concluded in a report that there is no such thing as lasting Green jobs, in fact, Green jobs because of the huge subsidies they require are a net killer of jobs.
Globally the Green taxation that is renewable energy’s life blood is being cut, as the subsidies are cut the illusory Green jobs are lost, so now is the time for the warmists to widen the definition of Green jobs to support their claims that Green will be the economic driver of the future.

The warming alarmists constantly whine about the huge alleged subsidies that are paid to the oil and gas industry, but as the above chart, from the House Budget Committee shows the subsidies paid to the renewables for wind power are 94 times the subsidy paid for natural gas, similar subsidies are paid in other countries including Britain to make renewables economically viable.
Also repeated across the planet is the great Green
jobs mirage lie, it is no surprise that a country like Spain’s economy is in tatters after the Spanish jumped on the Green jobs bandwagon and then found every Green job created, cost 2.2 jobs in conventional industries.
A report by the House Budget Committee concludes that the history of Green jobs is one of universal failure: Read the rest of this entry
Another red letter day in the life of the Aardvark today and just like the last red letter day this one has got a little better as once again another green scheme that idiot Chris Huhne is in charge of, is about to crash and burn.
Freshly returned from the car crash in Cancun, Huhne’s latest set back is the Green Investment Bank, or rather the lack of size of the bank.
Concerns within the Treasury mean that the Green Investment Bank is more likely to be a fund Read the rest of this entry
A definite case of the red mist came down when Aardvark picked up a tweet from Giles Paxman, the British Ambassador to Spain regarding wind power and bird choppers.
Giles Paxman is the brother of, Jeremy Paxman BBC’s political heavy weight and king of sarcasm, well al least he was until he met Boris Johnson.
Giles Paxman is really onside for the Warming Alarmist policies of our
Vichy Coalition Government, where he is singing from the hymnsheet of Al Gore and The Eton Grocer.
