British Wind Farms Political Will Falters

British government quietly shelves plans for more wind farms because of mounting public and political anger over the costs of the Green taxation that wind power needs to survive.

The public anger over the ever rising cost of energy bills due to the Green taxation costs of wind and solar is at last being heard.

At the beginning of February 101 Tory MP’s and some MPs from other political parties wrote to Prime Minster David Cameron complaining about the 15% Green taxation that wind power adds to energy bills.

The departure of Chris Huhne was always going to spell the end of the Greenest Government ever, and while Cameron will never admit that, he like many other politicians was conned by the warming alarmists, the likely political course will be to sweep things quietly under the carpet and move on.

Hurricane Blows Through The US Wind Industry

The tax credit extension for US wind power subsidy has been dropped and a new report says that half of US off shore wind turbines would be destroyed in a hurricane

The global trend in cutting the tax payer funded Green subsidies that allow wind and solar to exist, has arrived in the United States.

In the US wind farms have been subsidised since 1992 by the Wind Production Tax Credit (PTC), which was usually extended for 1 – 2 year periods; in 2009 the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act extended subsidy for wind power until the end of 2012.

An extension of the PTC, the subsidy that allowed wind to be competitive with other forms of energy, has been left out of a payroll tax cut extension currently making its way through the US  House of Representatives, without a change of policy wind subsidy ends in 2012.

The Americans have subsidised wind power for 20 years, and yes, you guessed right without Green taxation the US wind industry is dead. Read the rest of this entry

Japanese Government Halts Subsidies For Wind Farms

The Divine Wind of Green subsidy has ceased to blow in Japan

The global decline in prohibitively expensive Green renewable energy continues with the news that the Japanese Government is putting a stop to the Green taxation that allowed wind farms to exist in Japan.

In the last 12 months just 33 bird choppers have been added to the Japanese grid: Read the rest of this entry

Wind Farms Paid £10 Million To Turn Off

Wind Farm operators paid £10,000,000 to turn turbines off

The insanity of wind power continues unabated as wind farm operators are paid £10 million pounds to turn the bird choppers off.

There are nearly 6 million households in energy poverty due to the Green agenda and the ludicrous amount of tax payer subsidies that wind power receives, the wind farm operators are paid a huge subsidy to generate a electricity, and then they are paid to not generate electricity, a win win situation for anyone involved in the Green renewables scam and of course, a lose lose for the tax payers.

EU Green Policies And ETS In Crisis

Without intervention not only is the EU Emissions Trading finished, but also Europe's climate policy is over

The European Union is fast approaching the point of no return, the Euro zone is in economic meltdown as the debt ridden economies of Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain threaten to wipe out the Euro, and  global confidence in the currency continues to decline.

With the EU teetering on the brink of a recession the last thing the EU needs is a trade war with the rest of the world, which is exactly what is likely to happen over the EU tax on flying that is due to start on January 1st 2012.

The Green flying tax is part of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme which has seen the price of carbon fall to an all time low of 6.4 Euros per tonne: Read the rest of this entry

Wind And Solar Power Will Cause An Energy Crisis By 2015

Renewable energy sources have been deemed inadequate

A new report produced jointly by the Adam Smith Institute (ASI) and Scientific Alliance warns of the dangers for secure and reliable power supplies if the government continues the folly of believing that renewables work, and that renewables are not economically viable without the never ending huge Green taxation and subsidies.

The technologies of wind and solar power simply do not work: Read the rest of this entry
