Wind and Solar, the flagship renewable energy icons of the warming alarmists, crony capitalists and rent seekers sold, as solving all the worlds energy needs in a clean Green way.
Renewables are neither clean nor Green, the use of heavy metals in their manufacture make this another Green lie, the wind turbine lie was hidden half a world a way in China, where the town of Batou is surrounded by a huge lagoon of toxic chemicals from the manufacture of magnets for wind turbines.
The truth about the use of cadmium and other toxic chemicals in the manufacture of solar panels has now floated to the surface in the that most carcinogen obsessed of countries, the United States.
In the wake of yet another Obama funded clean-tech disaster like Solyndra a solar panel manufacturer in Colorado has gone bankrupt: Read the rest of this entry
Last month I blogged about free solar panels being a killer for mortgages, a couple of people commented about having called mortgage providers who would offer mortgages to properties with installed solar panels. So I called a number of mortgage providers saying I wanted to buy a house with installed solar panels on a 25 year roof lease, no one provider gave me an outright yes, most wanted to see the agreement with the solar panel company before proceeding further.
The problem of being unable to get mortgage on a property with roof-lease for solar panels is becoming more widespread according to David Dalby, a director of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors: Read the rest of this entry
The Green gold rush to grab billions in the renewable energy Feedin tariff scam has already added 15% to Britain’s energy bills, which has left millions of people in energy poverty while a lucky few reaped the rewards of the Green Dream subsidies.
Now the Green Dream is turning sour for those that chose to do the Green thing because their houses are unsaleable to anyone but cash buyers.
The gullibility of those that chose to lease roof space to Green renewable solar companies is simply amazing: Read the rest of this entry
Another nail in the coffin of the Green Dream hit home today with the news that BP is pulling the plug on its solar operations.
The statement from BP is no big surprise, the German solar industry is as near as makes no difference bankrupt, the Solyndra scandal in the US is typical of the global failure of the solar power business and many governments have cut the Green taxes that allow the renewables industry to exist.
BP has been quietly shedding renewables jobs and closing facilities: Read the rest of this entry
The WWF have taken time out from controlling the UN IPCC by the back door to produce a politically correct religious tome about how Britain could get 90% of its energy needs from renewables by 2030, without, the need for either coal fired or nuclear power stations.
This is the silly season for warming alarmists as they prepare to commit terrible sins against the Environment by flying to Durban for COP17, so it is no real wonder that this load of recycled Greenwash is being pushed hard.
The report is more of the same lies about the affordability and the benefits of renewables to the economy, all underlined with the oxymoron of Green jobs: Read the rest of this entry
