UK Pledges To Ax Green Energy Subsidies
Daily Caller

15 October 2015

The United Kingdom is pledging to end all green energy subsidies by the mid-2020s.

“By the mid-2020s, we would like to see the government retreat as much as is possible from [renewable energy] subsidies, the current administration is aiming to be more discriminating about the types of low-carbon technology it wishes to support,” Stephen Lovegrove, the permanent secretary of Britain’s Department of Energy and Climate Change, said at an event Tuesday hosted by Columbia University.

Lovegrove said subsidies should end because “there is a cost being imposed on consumers which distorts the U.K.’s competitiveness and the [British] pound in people’s pockets when they get home.” Lovegrove is…

Wind Power Subsidies Crushing Families & Killing Thousands of Real Jobs

STOP THESE THINGS

spain unemployment Want to know about wind industry employment? Why not ask a Spaniard? Fully 26% of them will have plenty of time to attend to your inquiry.

****

The wind industry’s fortunes are waning all over the globe.

As politicians face the wrath of furious voters lumbered with the ludicrous costs of backing an entirely meaningless power generation source – subsidies are being slashed; investors are grabbing their money on the way out, before the whole Ponzi scheme inevitably collapses; and wind power outfits are struggling to simply stay afloat.

Being hammered by legislators keen to bring the rort to an end, the last redoubt for the wind industry’s parasites are claims that it can defy every last rule and principle of economics; and increase employment in an economy where a key input cost – ie electricity – is being driven through the roof, by ludicrous and wholly unnecessary producer subsidy…

Wind Power: How We Got Here (by John Droz Jr.)

Quixotes Last Stand

From John’s site:   Wind Power Facts

I saw an article in Mother Earth News that was shamelessly supporting wind power (a topic I know something about), so I contacted the writer. My question to him was: what scientificinformation do you have that proves that wind power does what it is supposed to do?

After several amusingly evasive correspondences, he finally conceded that he had none. In a desperate attempt to defend this untenable position he then said that no proof was needed!

In exploring this unexpected line of thought with this reportedly knowledgeable individual, it became quite clear to me that he did not have a big-picture concept of what is going on here.

But since this deficiency is clearly shared by many other people, let’s do a quick review as to how we have arrived at our current electrical energy predicament…

The first practical use of electricity…

Bank of England: “Climate change a ‘huge’ financial risk”

Watts Up With That?

climate-cash

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

The Bank of England has stepped into the climate fray, with a claim that climate change poses a huge financial risk to UK based businesses. For once I believe the Bank of England is absolutely correct (more below).

According to the Sydney Morning Herald;

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said Britain’s insurers face potentially “huge” exposure to shifts in climate-change policy and Group of 20 nations need to do more to combat associated financial-stability risks.

“The challenges currently posed by climate change pale in significance compared with what might come,” Mr Carney said in a speech at a Lloyd’s of London dinner.

“Once climate change becomes a defining issue for financial stability, it may already be too late.”
England’s central bank has been looking into the economic and financial-stability risks posed by climate change and Carney spoke as the BoE published a report on…

Climate activists want us prosecuted under RICO

Watts Up With That?

Losing the climate science battle, climate activists want government to silence skeptics

Guest essay by Paul Driessen

They haven’t employed the thumb screws, rack or auto-da-fe that churches and states once used to interrogate, silence and eliminate heretics and witches. However, global warming alarmists are well practiced in the modern equivalents, to protect their $1.5-trillion Climate Crisis Industry.

They see only what they want to see, and publicize only what they want us to see. They refuse to debate anyone who questions the nature, severity or reality of “manmade climate change dangers” that are the foundation of their demands that we slash fossil fuel use, lower our living standards, and accept global government planning of economies and massive climate “adaptation and reparation” payments.

They collude to hide and manipulate data, and employ computer models that that make the Little Ice Age disappear and global temperatures climb rapidly after 1950…
