INFLATED COSTS OF GREEN ENERGY KILL BRITISH HEAVY INDUSTRY

Posted 9 April 2016

Discussing the threatened closure of Britain's largest steel works in Port Talbot due to inflated costs of energy, James Delingpole posts at Breitbart: "First, the green movement is ideologically opposed to Western industrial civilisation: so these factory closures are not a regrettable by-product but a very deliberate aim of its policies. Second,...the environmental movement has no problem with telling outright lies in the service of its cause."

INTELLIGENT DISCUSSION OF MERITS OF WINDARMS v NUCLEAR FOR FUTURE ENERGY GENERATION

Posted 9 April 2016

The UK's Scientific Alliance has posted two recent commentaries that indicate a change of heart by one prominent warmist who questions the efficacy of wind power as a feasible solution to Britain's energy problems. The post discusses the differences between that warmist and Professor Bjorn Lomborg: "To make any real progress on these thorny issues, we have to get away from the doctrinaire differences and name-calling that characterise so much of the debate. When ‘warmists’ refuse even to share a platform with ‘deniers’ (a term used sometimes to denote even a whiff of heretical thought) there can seem little point in trying to engage constructively."

COP21: CLIMATE CHANGE THE INDUSTRY TO RIVAL THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Posted 13 December 2015

"If there has been a meeting of minds in Paris, a common link for the developed and developing world, the communists, big business and the Greens, it is the firm belief that there's a lot of money in climate change. Like a magic pudding, the climate change response will unleash economic forces to rival the the Industrial Revolution, liberate continents from poverty, boost food security and right historical wrongs. In the nuclear-powered corridors of the COP21 UN conference, industrial and economic transformation is the dominant narrative that does not lack ambition."   The Australian's Environment Editor, Graham Lloyd writes it's more about money than temperatures.
