Roger Helmer MEP has written a post for Conservative Home here. where he says.
The only UK factory producing wind turbines, Vestas in the Isle of Wight, closed in 2009 with the loss of 600 jobs
Solar panels may create a few temporary jobs on installation, but a large proportion of the panels are made in China, where they have lower labour costs, and (because much of their electricity comes from coal) much lower energy costs
A study by Spanish Professor Gabriel Calzada of the Juan Carlos University shows that every green job created in Spain cost 2.2 real jobs in the real economy.
In the USA, President Obama started out as a real champion of green jobs, with a series of projects. We see the same sad story — budgets not spent, projects not completed, and the subsidies to create the green jobs wholly disproportionate to their value.
The Times, the UK’s newspaper of record, reports that “Government claims (from the previous Labour administration) that the UK supports a million ‘green collar’ jobs have been exposed as a sham”. The figures included North Sea Gas workers — and even wallpaper suppliers.
But these facts are of no interest to the climate change peddlers. Al Gore claims that climate change deniers will be despised just like racists one day. (Story Here)To actually compare the climate change lobby to the civil rights movement of the 1960’s shows how barmy some of these people really are.
But comparing climate change sceptics to racists is nothing compared to what the Guardian has said. The Guardian reports that Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations.
It seriously says
It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.
So it would appear that because telling us of this climate change scenario wasn’t working very well they have resorted to trying to scare us with barmy stories of possible alien invasions. As the Guardianista’s think that they are intellectually superior to us, maybe they think we’re thick enough to take such nonsense seriously. Or maybe they’ve caught to much sun meditating in crop circles.
Locally leader of the County Lib Dems Kathy Pollard has been blogging about Green issues here. where she says
Research by the Lib Dems has revealed that Suffolk County Council has failed drastically to meet its own carbon emissions reduction target.
Cllr Caroline Page, Lib Dem Spokesperson for Roads and Transport said “This shows that the Greenest County claim is nothing but Greenwash
The reality is that the whole idea of a link between global temperature rises and CO2 is Greenwash.
Kathy Pollard has also blogged about green stuff here. telling us that A range of ‘green buildings’ are open to the public between 8th to 11th of September. Just think of all the carbon you can emit visiting them all.
