The poorest will pay the highest price for Net Zero fantasies

BySteve Baker 21 May, 2021 in The Critic

he pandemic and our response to it has hit the country hard. Our economic contraction last year was the worst for hundreds of years and the damage continues to pile up. Millions remain on furlough. Too many businesses have closed their doors for good. That’s why I have worked hard with MPs to promote our collective recovery from this disease.

As we begin to recover, I recall a promise I made to the electors of Wycombe at the 2019 count. After a campaign in which environmental issues were dominant like never before, I promised to pay close attention to climate change policy.

The more I study, the more concerned I become that we are launching a ruinous economic experiment when we can least afford it. With their radical plan to fully decarbonise the entire economy by 2050 — “net zero” — that is just what Conservative ministers are embarked upon.

It is hard to overstate the scale of the transformation ministers intend to deliver. If plans are carried through to their logical conclusion, it will mean the end of the comfortable lifestyles we have enjoyed for generations. Only the well-heeled will be able to afford private cars or foreign holidays. Increasing numbers of people will be unable to take for granted heating their homes.

Costs are already clocking up at an extraordinary rate, with consumers forced to pour about £11 billion into renewables through their energy bills. Large offshore windfarms can each receive three or four hundred million pounds in subsidy, every year. The largest, Hornsea 1, will take more than half a billion pounds a year. Larger ones are coming. It’s no wonder the drive for renewables has led to electricity prices nearly doubling, a rise that looks likely to continue for decades to come. … Continue reading >>>

Green Energy Poverty Week As the climate science research grant phishers, brainwashed socialist idiots, tree hugging, rope sandal wearing weirdie-beardies, and green energy subsidy troughers prepare to celebrate Earch day, supporters of the common sense lobby named the week following Earth day as Green Energy Poverty Week to show respect for those plunged into fuel poverty by green energy taxes levied to fund the wind farm and solar energy subsidy millionaires.

SunEdison Plummets On Imminent Bankruptcy; Axiom Sees “The Beginning Of The End” And 85% More Downside

Researchers Discover How to Use Living Plants to Generate Electricity.
Most of the hyped green energy solutions to generate electricity from wind or sunshine are so obviously flawed the only thing that makes them economically viable is that governments offer huge subsidies to generators. This in turn makes the sustainables so expensive that consumers cannot afford the intermittent energy they produce.

The Pain In Spain – Is Spain Being Pushed To Civil War By The Eurozone Chaos?
Spain, a proud and ancient nation with a vibrant culture and a history crammed with the acts of great men and women and stunning achievements in the arts and sciences is not its knees. With the country bankrupted by membership of the Eurozone, unemployment running at twenty five per cent and several regional independence groups threatening to cause political fragmentation, what can save Spain now El Cid isn’t around?

Climate change is a theory for which there is “no scientific proof at all” says the co-founder of Greenpeace
As the science behind the great global warming scare is exposed as a complete fraud, the zealots of The Church Of Climate Science are getting more fanatical in trying to impose their crackpot religion on the gullible and weak minded (aka politicians). Trouble is nobody trusts either politicians or scientists so all that is achieved is to keep attention focused on the bullsit of a bunch of crooks a bunch of and liars while serious environmental issues are ignored.

What if man-made climate change is all in the mind?
If our view of reality is shaped by the mind and our perceptions of information, how successful are attempts to manipulate the perceptions of the whole populations through manipulated data, spin and assertions of authority likely to be. As scientists and politicians moan that the public no longer take sertiously climate change scare stories, we have to conclude, not very.

We were bullied into buying diesel cars to help the environment. Now experts admit this ‘green’ fuel is killing thousands of us
Remember all that fuss a few years ago about how much better for the environment it would be if we all drove diesel cars instead of petrol. As usual, the scientists couldn’t see the smoke for the fumes and politicians only had the interests of oil companies and car makers in mind. Now it turns out diesel is worse for the envronment and our health after all. Now what did they call those of us who said that was the case all along? Conspiracy theorists or something.

Gas power stations are greener than wind for low carbon, Policy Exchange claims
Another “We told you so story for The Daily Stirrer. Building gas-fired power plants instead of more offshore wind farms could actually lead to greater carbon savings at a lower cost, a leading think-tank has claimed. In a report out today, Policy Exchange argued that the government should scrap 4GW of its planned 13GW target for …

Spain dumps clean-energy subsidies; promptly watches the industry go down like a sinking ship
The news that Spain has dumped it’s loonytoons green energy policy will surprise few people who have followed the wind turbine scam. Wind power as a source of energy is unreliable and inefficient and it was only in a fit of green socialist insanity Spain’s previous government committed that beleagured nation to meeting the bulk of its energy needs from wind and sun powreed generators. The scientists who advised them forgot it oes dark for approximately half the time and the wind blows when it fels like blowing.

Electricity bills set to rise to pay for wind farm subsidiesWhile sensible people agree that the climate is causing serious problems few people still think this is due solely to CO2 emissions from human activity. Even the author of Gaia theory has said the problem is more complex. Unfortunately climate scientists with their snouts in the tax money trough are still pushing the discredited idea that wind turbines and solar panels can meet our energy needs. Well if that is the case why are domestic fuel bills rising to pay for subsidies paid to the operators of these failed technologies. [ also Daily Stirrer 21 May 2012
Futility of wind farmsIn some ways the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition has made quite a good start in government. One area they are set to fail badly however is energy. Driven by politically correct thinking the coalition are set to follow Labour down the road that goes through wind power and eventually leads nowhere. Wind turbines look fine on paper. If they generate at their optimum output for 365 days a year the contribution to energy needs looks like a viable business proposition. The problem is due to the limitations of the technology and the vagaries of the weather wind farms are doing well if they operate at a quarter of their potential output.
Wind Turbine ScamA detailed and damning critique of wind turbine technology, renewable energy scams, green lobbying, the dodgy science behind the case for sustainable power and the politicisation of concerns about the environment. The whole thing looks more and more like a confidence trick by academics, politicians, big business and the New World Order.
Wind Turbine TruthThe truth about wind turbines, their real efficiency as opposed to the hyperbolic claims of clean sustainable energy lobbyists, politically correct politicians and green activists and how wind farm operators have been given a licence to pick the poskets of taxpayers
Green Policies Will Not Save The Planet But Are Costing Poor Families The EarthPoliticians bleat about the plight of the poor then press on with their clean, green, sustainable energy policies which include stealth taxes to subsidise expensive and inefficient wind turbine and solar panel power generators. Can they not see it is the green agenda that is driving up inflation …
The Pain In Spain as Green Energy Policy FailsYou will not find anything in mainstream media, either print or broadcast, about the failure of the green energy initiatives that have left Spain in dire economic strais or Denmark in the dark. Bizarre, as other governments are pressing ahead with plans to make us reliant on these crackpot schemes and intellectual wanks of mad scientists …
Fracking And Shale Gas Extraction Blamed For Lancashire Earth TremorsShale gas in the bedrock under Lancashire could probably meet Britain’s gas needs for 250 years. The process for extracting it, fracking, is controversial however and has been linked with minor earth tremors and seismic events. Xavier Connelly puts the risks and benefits in perspective.BR> Nuclear Power Risks or How To Stop Worrying And Love The AtomThe Greens, fear and panic merchants, cap and trade profiteers, carbon warmageddonists and usual suspects have been in a funk about the Fukushima nuclear power station accident, demanding we shut down nuclear generation as well as coal mines and oil wells. But the lesson of Fukushima is we should stop worrying and learn to love the atom.
Oil Shale SalvationRecent discoveries of huge gas and oil bearing shale deposits in the USA, CAnada, Russia and under Britain’s territorial waters as well as off the Falkland Islands and in the Antarctic are raising false hope of an early end to the energy crisis and food price inflation. What is the reality of these new oil and gas reserves, do they really offer the economies of the developed world salvation and a return to business as usual.

Don’t Call Me A Conspiracy Theoristt has become the habit of the self styled ‘progressive left’ to shout conspiracy theorist whenever anybody very reasonably suggests they are being duped by the dark forces of corporate fascism, that their favoured brand of collectivism is not in any way liberal but in fact will lead to an oligarchic tyranny similar to the big brother regime depicted in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty Four and that far from being theoretical, conspiracies are verey real and exercising much more influence on our lives than the unimaginative lefties would ever believe.
