Discussing Donald Trump and the Climate Deal on the Stephen Nolan Show. Click here.
Just under three hours in.
The Climate Change Act (CCA) has to be one of the most expensive Bills and act of sabotage against our own economy in history, until this Paris agreement came along which is on a larger scale. We are yet to see its effects. No sign of this CCA being repealed by the Tories. It’s resulted in the wholesale massacre of swathes of British industry since 2008. Just in my town of Dartford and surrounding towns, I witnessed 3 paper factories close, the pharma company, 2 cement works close and finally the power station was shut down 2 years ago. THe CCA has done more damage to British industry than even the Laftwaffe did during WWII.
In its place the brownfield sites have become vast housing estates, built using imported materials, that Dartford used to manufacture and there are very few jobs to go around outside of shelf stacking.
The CCA converted my booming town into a dormitory town for London in less than 10 years. Agenda 21 in action.
Seeing no future for the town or the country I emigrated. So long as the CCA and the Paris agreement are in effect, there is no future for the UK.
oh…a well constructed agreement. It does not contain anything of any value and it pretends to address a system that is not scientifically understood. Mr Trump did the right thing for the US, unfortunately we are still governed by fools. Well, some aren’t quite…are they?
And…will shortly have to login to iPlayer. Nope, won’t be doing that.
Perhaps a few more people (not the politically correct) have read Booker and the Paris Agreement. If so, they now know why Trump pulled the USA out, they would be footing the bill for others idle promises.
Perhaps reality is reawakening in Germany and Energiewende is being rejected for its high cost and failure to attain its objectives. From GWPF : – Two days after the decision by US President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, the conservative wing of the ruling Christian Democratic Party (CDU) is demanding a radical change in Germany’s climate policy. The “Berlin Circle” is particularly critical of the federal government’s climate policy. It claims that the goal of limiting global warming to two degrees Celsius is “no longer realistic”. Accordingly, it is wrong trying to close the gap by “aggressive policy measures to reduce CO2”. “Even in Germany it is no longer politically sustainable to implement such a policy which would surely lead to massive social upheavals”.
The declaration of the “Berlin Circle” is a targeted campaign against the chancellor and her role as party chairman. Until now, the conservative alliance had concentrated on refugee policy and internal security, thus uniting the considerable displeasure which exists within the Christian Democratic Party. With its attack on Germany’s climate policy the right wing of the party has now opened a new front against Merkel – and this demonstratively in the executive committee room of the Parliamentary party.
Trump did not withdraw from the Paris agreement, it was the American people who voted for it , the EU commissars do not understand democracy and sneer at it as populism .
“I can guess why a raven is like a writing-desk” Alice said. “Do you mean you think you can find out the answer?” said the March Hare. “Exactly so,” said Alice. “Then you should say what you mean,” the March Hare went on. “I do,” Alice replied. “At least I mean what I say. That’s the same thing, you know.”
“Not the same thing a bit!” said the Hatter. “You might just as well say, ‘I see what I eat’ is the same thing as ‘I eat what I see’!” “You might just as well say,” added the Dormouse, ‘I breathe when I sleep’ is the same thing as ‘I sleep when I breathe’!” “It IS the same thing with you,” said the Hatter.
Can you imagine stumbling upon the Mad Hatter’s tea party, watching as the discussions become increasingly absurd – and yet wanting a permanent seat at the table? Could Lewis Carroll have been having nightmares about the Paris climate treaty when he wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?
Great post, Jane.
Thanks……I wish it was mine….credit to Paul Driessen.
Meanwhile back in the EU………
Who is/was “motormouth” Jonathan? – does he think he can win all arguments just by shear bulk of incessant PC claptrap, posing the questions and ignoring Roger`s answers (which were good expert ones mostly).
It`s the old salesman technique of selling the product i.e. “setting aside” all objections – double glazing and orthopaedic beds come to mind.
To listen in to this sort of diatribe you can soon detect the “phoney” and it wasn`t Roger, he was cool calm and brilliant as ever!.
A sign of the times from the USA…
It is easier for the EU to follow the flock of world sheep, rather than think ! This is not all bad due to the rise in voices of those like UKIP and similar in Europe, who are saying that the EU is rubbish. Of course, such voices if acted upon, would bring an end to the circus, so no doubt they will think when the money dries up.
