  1. Time again to look at the erronious basis behind CO2 reductions targets methinks. The entire raison d’être for the imposition of CO2 reduction targets is False and based upon fatuous hokum.

    The View From Galileo’s Window:
    The
    Sun, The CO2 Monster, and Earth’s Climate

    by Dr. Willie Soon

    • Yes indeed. It’s wrong several times over. First because CO2 isn’t a problem, so there’s no point in restricting it. Second, because even on warmist assumptions the actions we propose, despite the cost, would have a trivial effect. Third, because any action in Europe will be swamped by the rest of the world. Fourth, because even if we wanted to reduce CO2, renewables are a hopelessly expensive and ineffective way of doing it. As I said in my poster campaign, our green policies are probably unnecessary, certainly innefectual, and ruinously expensive.

    I agree with Dr. Soon.

    Today, Henry Kissinger may be the only one still alive who can confirm or deny that the decision in 1971 to Unite Nations against an imaginary “common enemy,” Global Climate Change, was based on FEAR instilled by the vaporization of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 and the Cuban missile crisis in October 1962.

    • Note also the chilling warning given by
      President Eisenhower in his farewell speech.
      Isn’t this what has now truly come to pass?

      “The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower

      Maurice Strong is a key figure in all this according to many, and George Washington Hunt is especially critical [see this video on the UNCED Earth Summit by Hunt].

    Roger: There’s no harm in keeping on plugging away, but I think that “the policy is settled” and no one is going to review it, have another think, or whatever – I just cannot believe it’s because they are all half-wits. That policy must be to export our industries to the third world – irrespective of other outcomes, such as commerce following the industrial base.
    When we eventually achieve an exit from the EU (though that might be because the EU collapses first) the current hierarchy will all be gone to their retirements in “well-earned luxury” and will point their fingers at each other from the safety of their unsaleable memoirs.

    • Pardon my jaundiced view, but what “industries” are those then. Industries in which the UK has some unique expertise? I hope you are not referring to what we in Scotland now refer to as “Salmond’s Dream” or “Swinney’s Fantasy”, where the SNP has decreed that Scotland will produce so much wind energy that it will be more than 100% self sufficient, and be a major exporter to England and Europe [“next the World”, eh Alex, who was that said that before?].

      Not only that says Salmondo, but Scotland will collect all the CO2 from all over Europe using a technolgy that is so new, it hasn’t yet been actually developed commercially, and then store it in vast reservoirs below the North Sea, using a world beating, groundbreaking technology, which is so revolutionary and new, that erm the oil industry has been using it for well over half a century, eh what? Then with the windmill technology that we have imported we will create an “industry” employing millions, and export this technology which everybody else already has, and that we imported from them, and then expect them to buy from us the very goods and technology which they sold us in the first place. It is risible vacuous gobbledegook and utter fatuous flummery.

      • The industries we are driving off-shore are the energy-intensive industries, like cement, chemicals, glass, metals, wood and paper. So much for “rebalancing our economy towards manufacturing”.

      • I see what you mean. Yes that’s right, and don’t forget that in many cases, a metal works that had its own generating capacity, which was either then forced to shut down like Anglesey Aluminium (so called dirty coal), or hijacked and made into a “green power station” like Redcar Steelworks (bogus hydrogen power) or Kinlochleven Aluminium (hijacked pelton wheel hydro )http://www.treasuredplaces.org.uk/img/large/371638.jpg)

        There are other examples.

    Roger untill Europe has sold all the wind turbines turned this once beautiful land into a rusting eysore no one is going to listen,
    Strange how even though this country is surrounded by the sea our politicos chose the wind and .not wave power, they are quislings and we are the sacrifice that feeds their ego, on the alter of their european masters,
