“Although Germany’s promotion of renewable energies is commonly portrayed
in the media as setting a “shining example in providing a harvest for the
world” (The Guardian 2007), we would instead regard the country’s experience as a cautionary tale of massively expensive environmental and energy policy that is devoid of economic and environmental benefits.”
Green Energy – some lessons from Europe
While the Rudd climate regiment is stuck in Copenhagen, achieving not much, they should look beyond their posh hotel for some lessons in energy generation.
First, slip over to France and note how these wily promoters of carbon rationing rely on nuclear power for 76% of their own energy.
Then visit UK and observe the frenzied construction of coal mines and nuclear power stations to prevent future blackouts caused by UK’s silly dalliance with costly and unreliable wind farms.
Don’t miss out on Spain where the cost of subsidising green energy has created a financial crisis and destroyed 2.2 real jobs for every green job “created”.
They could also visit Scandinavia, which relies heavily on hydro power, or Iceland, where geothermal power is easily harnessed. No wonder these countries are relaxed about imposing carbon Ration-N-Tax Schemes on the rest of us.
A quick trip to Moscow could reveal how the cunning Russians, despite their well known scepticism about the west’s thermo-mania, have managed to trick Europe into buying huge quantities of gas together with the millions of emissions permits needed to burn it. Boris loves the ETS.
Just next door in Germany, Minister Wong could find out how the Greens have left Germany dangerously reliant on Russian gas. The German gamble with alternate energy has produced little power and no environmental benefits at great cost.
Finally, without leaving Copenhagen, Mr Rudd could easily discover how the forests of Danish windmills have produced little useful power and large financial losses for the suffering Danes. Freezing Copenhagen is heated mainly by imported electricity.
The Chinese however are happy with “Green Energy Europe” – they are busy manufacturing most of the world’s solar panels and wind turbines, emitting much carbon dioxide in the process.
This short European trip will illustrate the stupidity of Australia promoting a carbon Ration-N-Tax Scheme and dreaming that we can maintain our industry and our lifestyle on costly and totally unreliable alternate energy sources like wind and solar.
Nature Snows on the global warming circus in Copenhagen
The Gore Effect strikes again.
Hundreds of people demonstrated and complained outside the meeting hall in Copenhagen yesterday at having to wait for up to ELEVEN HOURS IN THE FREEZING COLD, to get into the meeting to complain about GLOBAL WARMING!
45,000 people were trying to get into a room with capacity of 15,000. Sounds like CRU at East Anglia did the counting.

This illustrates the lengths and depths to which the individuals behind this movement are prepared to descend.
One hundred reasons why global warming is naturalThe Daily Mail lists 100 reasons:
The tide has turned with the public, and the media has sensed it. But the thermo-maniacs will not give up easily. They are close to their fond goal of putting the western world in chains to fund the biggest redistribution of wealth the world has ever seen. The whole scam is about as honest as a porno magazine with a picture of mother Teresa on the cover.

New Climate Consensus – Global Warming is caused by rising US postal charges.
Here is a correlation better than the temperature vs carbon dioxide correlation supporting Al Gore’s Thermo-mania – global warming is driven by US postal charges.

Thriving WITH Nature and Humanity
The genuine environment and conservation movement is one of the most important social movements on Earth. Yet, its credibility is endangered by confused and fearful politicians, alarmist activists, sensationalist media and prominent extremists with financial conflicts of interest.
Today we hear constant messages about the changing climate and the dire consequences that may have for our beautiful planet. Hearing loud, contradictory accusations and predictions of planetary doom you may feel confused about what and who to believe. Supposed experts disagree on both what is happening to our planet and the causes of what is happening. Yet we’re told there is universal agreement global warming was caused by humans…
It’s clear our climate, including temperatures, continually varies. Examination of this ongoing variation becomes alarm when doom is predicted from the presence of humans on Earth. Many people feel powerless and immobilised which only deepens their mix of confusion, desperation, apathy and panic…
You may think global warming needs to be treated as seriously as pollution yet they’re actually different issues and we should be even more concerned about the core issue - climate alarm. That’s because throughout human history actions driven by fear produced solutions far worse than the initial perceived problem.
