Moronic UK Green Power Policies.

An analysis by the UK Dept of Energy and Climate Change should have men in white coats dispatched to Whitehall because their policies are looney tunes by any rational standards. The analysis says  £5,000 a year per person needs to be spent up to 2050 to combat rampart global temperature increases as shown. The fact that the Guardian has treated this as a serious item without ridicule shows how far out of their trees their journalists actually.are.


The Four Main Effects Of Global Warming
Every person in Britain will need to pay about £5,000 a year between now and 2050 on rebuilding and using the nation's entire energy system, according to government figures. But the cost of developing clean and sustainable electricity, heating and transport will be very similar to replacing today's ageing and polluting power stations, the analysis finds.
Given that there is no 24/7 dispatch-able "green" alternative available to replace coal /gas/nuclear power it is interesting to know the basis for the costings.
The fact that the nation is broke and currently  borrowing 5 billion pounds per week seems to completely escape these ideological nincompoops in proposing these huge expenditures for a non-workable solution to a non-existent problem.
The plan calls for the use of carbon capture and storage which may upset the unicorns grazing in the mythical future green world of the true believer.

  1. Have we bumped into Terry Pratchett's Discworld?
    I kept checking the article to see if it wasn't a paper from the CRU of the Unseen Univeristy!

  2. If journalists had to pass an exam on basic scientific principles before being allowed to write their stories, maybe the public wouldn't be drowning in absurd misinformation as it is now.

    The average journalist is completely scientifically illiterate. To them anyone in a lab coat who uses important-sounding words is an 'expert'. That's how the climate alarmists have gotten away with their scam for so long. :(

  3. It doesn't matter to them if the economy is wrecked, as they would rather live in a world that is 'green' and 'renewable', even if it means going right back to the stone age, sail powered boats, and bows and arrows (as metal extraction, I have heard from some academics, is too energy-intensive, so will have to be abandoned). Trouble is, not everybody else wants to do this. So should going back to the stone age be imposed on everybody? According to some of the greens, yes. What a strange world we live in, but at least it isn't boring.

  4. Ultimately the problem is that there will soon be too many humans for Planet Earth to accommodate. No-one is going to address this basic fact because uncontrolled human reproduction is sacrosanct. The consequences down the track will be horrific but entirely predictable.

  5. Ultimately this is not a problem that people of white European descent can correct as their birth rate is already below replacement across the globe. The birth rate of ethnic minorities is very high with ten children per family common and this is the problem that needs to be faced although anyone trying to do that will be called a racist.I get tired of people claiming that the population explosion is anything to do with Western society.
