The folks here, the ones who influence and make decisions anyway, are convinced and have convinced many, that by taking extreme measures this island might save the planet from from warming and all sorts of other bad stuff. All they have to do is cram it all down the throats of everyone and hey. Presto, one large step advanced in the fight to save the planet. Never dawns on these ppl that their puny input is meaningless and does nothing. Whatever, they keep on with plan after plan and all in the face of other evidence which says something else.
Solar swindle: Cost of green subsidies will add £1 billion to family household bills
By Jason Groves
Ed Miliband’s controversial scheme to encourage homeowners to install solar panels and wind turbines is set to cost families an extra £1billion in higher bills, figures reveal.
Subsidies for solar panels rose 14-fold last year as individuals and businesses piled into the scheme, criticised as being a licence to print money.
The payments, funded by a levy on electricity bills, jumped from £9.2million in 2010/11 to £128.3million in 2011/12, according to figures compiled by energy regulator Ofgem.
Not much of a story here for Americans passing through here. Things is, I thought it interesting how far these eco-hand wringers will go even in the face of
But over the same time the average efficiency of schemes fell by more than 40 per cent – because of a lack of sunshine.
Subsidies for domestic wind turbines trebled over the same period, rising from £2.3million to almost £7million.
Households are paid for the electricity they return to the National Grid but the payments are far above market rates, requiring heavy subsidies.
Oh dear. What, What? No sunshine here in the gween gweat bwitain?
Ah .... scuse me but I believe all that rain is what make the place so GWEEN? Ya think there’s a connection?
Now then all that stuff aside, there is an agency here, The Met Office, which deals with the weather and change in and forecasting etc.
So very quietly, it was put out that oops, perhaps a mistake has been made in all this gorebal warming stuff. You betcha. Because ... another new headline reads;
GLOBAL WARMING STOPPED 16 YEARS AGO, A MET OFFICE REPORT REVEALS
A column by a fellow named David Rose has written an analysis on the subject, which really is interesting. At first I thought it might be dull and dry and of not much interest. Boy was I wrong. For those interested in the the global fraud, please read this link.
It’s getting close here - our water bill went sky high - couldn’t figure it out - then someone here said, look at it, it’s all the new taxes. What a rip.
If I could - I’d consider that new walled city in ID - at least I wouldn’t have to put up with the damn unions.
Stealth tax. The “green electricity” is another racket that stems from Britain’s slavish adoption of every EU diktat. They have told us we need to cut CO2 by some absurd amount by a set date so the public now has to subsidise this shit. Its a bloody disgrace.
