NORWICH Councillors Turn To 3-Year Olds To Advance Their Climate Change Agenda

THE disgraceful use of children as “climate leaders” and tools of climate change propaganda, summed up by the excellent Brendon O’Neill, on his coverage of 16 year-old Greta Thunberg…

“Young people, Ms Thunberg isn’t your leader. She’s a patsy for scared and elitist adults. Don’t do as she says. Instead, refuse to panic, mock the blather about hellfire, and appreciate that mankind’s transformation of the planet has been a glorious thing that has expanded life expectancy, allowed billions to live in cities, and made it possible for even the less well-off to travel the globe.” The cult of Greta Thunberg – spiked

NOW, extend those same sentiments to “3-year old” babies … !

WE really are living in the age of climate change aka global warming insanity and wilful child abuse…

It was bad enough listening to a 16-year old lecturing us on climate change, but now they are even indulging babies!

Around 20 home-educated youngsters from across the county, aged between three and eight years old, presented handwritten letters to City Hall councillors to express their concerns on climate change,

Mum Toyah Dye, 38, from East Runton, said the children were inspired by the recent demonstrations of the environmental movement Extinction Rebellion and also of David Attenborough’s Our Planet, which highlighted the effects of climate change in the natural world.

Ms Dye said the children were particularly struck by a scene in the series which showed walruses in Russia climbing and falling from a cliff due to the retreating sea ice.

“I was watching Our Planet with my children and the walruses made us really sad,” Ms Dye said. “So I asked my…

UNRELIABLES UPDATE : Britain Has Gone Nine Days Without Wind Power


Britain’s gone nine days with almost no wind generation, and forecasts show the calm conditions persisting for another two weeks.

The wind drought has pushed up day-ahead power prices to the highest level for the time of year for at least a decade. Apart from a surge expected around June 14, wind levels are forecast to stay low for the next fortnight, according to The Weather Company.

“People would’ve started worrying about brownouts,” Elchin Mammadov, analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence said. “This shows that relying on wind, solar and batteries to supply the majority of our power is reckless for energy security.”

On Wednesday, wind generated about 4.3 percent of the U.K.’s electricity. Coal output has dropped near zero. Gas and nuclear have picked up the slack with 54 percent and 25 percent respectively, according to data from National Grid Plc.

The weather can be fickle and the government has to make sure that there is enough back up generation for times when the wind isn’t blowing. Greg Clark, secretary of state for business energy and industrial strategy announced Monday that the U.K. will take the next step toward agreeing to help Hitachi Ltd. finance a new nuclear reactor.

VENTUSKY LIVE

THE wind blowing everywhere but the UK! LOL…

ANY national grid system reliant on unreliables – wind and solar – and the whims of the weather, is doomed for failure – energy poverty, blackouts and brownouts!

UNRLIABLES – insanity on stilts.

BRITAIN 🇬🇧 Squanders £7bn a Year on Stone Age Wind Power

“In all, subsidies for wind power and standby will be costing the country more than £7bn a year, equivalent to about £270 per household.”

SKYROCKETING power bills, energy poverty and the decimation of pristine landscapes, all to feed the egos of climate theory obsessed politicians and line the pockets of rent-seeking, subsidy-sucking mega-green corporations.

CO2 reductions for all this pain? ZERO, actually increased emissions as more fossil-fuel energy sources are needed to cover for the times when the wind don’t blow and the sun don’t shine! 🤦‍♂️

STUDIES: Wind Power Installation Amplifies The Growth Of Fossil Fuel Energies https://shar.es/anXezw

STOP THESE THINGS

It takes a ‘special’ kind of person to still believe that a country can run itself on sunshine and breezes.

Idolatry, zealotry, and good old-fashioned pig ignorance are worn like badges of honour amongst the wind and sun cult.

Claims range from the ‘wind is always blowing somewhere’, ‘wind power is cheaper than coal’, and ‘competitive’ with everything under the sun blah, blah, blah.

Another mantra is that, either wind power receives no subsidies at all or, if that’s grudgingly conceded, then the subsidies to wondrous wind dwarf those shoveled out to evil fossil fuels. (On the latter they struggle to come up with a shred of evidence to support their case, and ignore the fact that coal miners and gas extractors and pay very substantial sums in royalties to governments.)

True it is that the manner in which subsidies are filched from unwitting power consumers and siphoned off to…

The UK will spend trillions to reduce C02 emissions while the real offenders do little

Meanwhile, in the UK, 48,000 succumb to the record cold winter of 2017/18. https://climatism.wordpress.com/2018/04/08/runaway-global-warming-update-48000-brits-dead-after-worst-winter-in-42-years/
With that in mind, we really do live in a bizarre world when totally avoidable deaths of thousands of Brits due to ‘extreme’ cold are superseded by trillion pound virtue-signalling climate policies, passed without a blink, designed to prevent a supposed 1-2 degree warming by 2100!?

Welcome to the regrettable age of collective eco-madness.

Booker “celebrates” the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act!

image

There could be no better example of how those in the grip of groupthink tend to float ever further off into make-believe than a recent article by Claire Perry, our new Minister of State for Energy. She was celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act, the one which committed Britain, uniquely in the world, to an 80 per cent cut in our CO2 emissions by 2050 (once described by Nick Timothy, Theresa May’s former joint chief of staff as a “monstrous act of self-harm”).

Perry boasted that this “ground-breaking Act has been absolutely instrumental in advancing climate action globally over the past decade”, and is now inspiring other nations “to follow in our footsteps”. She went on to say that “trillions of pounds of private sector capital… will be needed to be deployed if we…

GAS (fossil fuels) needed for low-carbon targets says National Grid

AMUSES me every time: fossil fuels needed to reduce fossil fuel emissions to meet anti-fossil fuel Paris commitments. 🤦‍♂️

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Bit by bit, some reality appears to be intruding into the make believe world of the Climate Change Act:

No credible scenario’ exists for hitting the UK’s 2050 decarbonisation targets without continued reliance on gas, the National Grid has warned.

In a new report, entitled The Future of Gas: How gas can support a low carbon future’, the grid says that it is not feasible to switch over to electric heating on the scale required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 80 per cent of 1990 levels by the middle of this century.

To fill the gap required to meet peak heating demand during the winter with electricity would require a seven-fold increase in generation capacity.

It says that while electricity demand currently peaks at around 60 GW, up to 350 GW of electricity would be required during winter cold snaps.

“Electrifying heating would therefore require enormous…

“Runaway Global Warming” Update: 48,000 Brits Dead After Worst Winter In 42 Years

After a brief mild spell, temperatures are set to dip again in April after the chilliest March in 21 years.

It is estimated that 20,275 Brits more than average died between December 1 and March

An additional 2,000 deaths more than average were expected due to cold conditions between March 23 and 31, this winter’s average death rates show.

Campaigners have called the deaths a “national tragedy” as cold weather victims fatalities could be prevented – especially in the elderly.

48,000 Brits dead after worst winter in 42 years | Daily Star

RIP the 48,000 Brits who have succumbed to the deadly cold of 2018.

A few things come to mind that piss-me-off owing to this tragic loss of life that was and is entirely avoidable, if not for a climate of CO2-centric-global-warming-zealotry from our most trusted ‘experts’:

WHO are the real “deniers”?

Wind Farms In England Only Supply 2% Of Power

NOT to mention the shocking admission by the wind industry chief that England is not even windy enough! 🤦‍♂️

“Sooner or later everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Wind turbines near the village of Bothel in Cumbria.

 

Anyone who lives in England knows just how ubiquitous wind farms now are across the countryside.

So it might come as a surprise to learn just how little power they actually produce.

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy has now published the detailed data for 2016. It shows that onshore wind farms in England produced only 5.7 TWh, out of a total generation in England of 241.8 TWh.

In other words, the princely amount of 2%.

Can anybody say it has been worth all of the bother?
