Graham Watson is one of the few Lib-Dem MEPs whose name you can actually remember. He recently received his Knighthood, perhaps for his sterling work in steering the European Arrest Warrant through the European parliament.
I recently received an e-mail from Sir Graham regarding his so-called “Climate Parliament” — a pressure group with which he is associated. I don’t have to describe its policies, because anyone familiar with this blog will know what to expect. And it’s exactly what you’d expect, if not more so.
Nor will you be surprised to hear that the first demand of this “Climate Parliament” is for more money. The green boon-doggle is already absorbing trillions, and dragging our economy into the gutter. No matter. Sir Graham wants more.
I replied to him as follows:
Dear Sir Graham,
The only problem here is that renewables are clearly unsustainable.
I wonder if you’re familiar with the work of Professor Gordon Hughes of Edinburgh University, and others, which concludes that because of inefficiencies in the operation of the necessary fossil-fuel back-up and spinning reserve, renewables do not, in fact, deliver significant net increases in electricity generation, nor do they deliver significant reductions in emissions.
In short, you’re wasting your time. You’re also mortgaging our children and impoverishing our grandchildren.
Best regards. Roger.
