News From the U.K. on Their Forthcoming Carbon Fraud.
This is One of the Sites on the List of the UK Government for Nuclear Power Plants.
That's right! Nuclear power is now considered by the International Green (read socialist) Movement as a renewable power source!
Despite the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, another potential nuclear disaster in Japan that is being kept under the radar. There are THREE current nuclear emergencies in the US,two due to flooding and the other due to wildfires. These have not been widely reported in our mainstream media.
The insane Greens know that wind and solar can never supply all of any countries power needs!
So rather then develop cleaner methods of burning coal which Australia has plenty of, inexpensive, and it is realitevly harmless, The Green idea is to shut down all coal fired power stations and replace them with wind, solar and nuclear power plants. The last time I looked nuclear plants were not realy human friendly. To wit Fukushima and Chernoble.
Another "renewable" on their radar is gas fired power plants! I didn't know natural gas was a renewable power source? Maybe we can plant millions of acres to sugar cane as a renewable bio-fuel. However each litre of bio-fuel takes more then a litre of fossile fuel to produce!
WTF is this insanity from our politicians coming from?
During the last northern winter the weather got cloudy for 2 weeks and the wind did not blow for approximately the same period. Guess what happened? The UK had to buy nuclear power from France because the few remaining coal fired plants could not take up the backlog from no wind and no sunshine!
Anyway that is my opinion and now onto what is happening in the UK and what we can expect from the Julia and Bob carbon fraud.
"A green ‘stealth’ tax to encourage new wind farms and nuclear power plants could push tens of thousands of households into fuel poverty but do nothing to reduce emissions.
The carbon floor price, announced in the UK March Budget, could even end up giving climate policies a ‘bad name’, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) has warned.
To be introduced in 2013, the tax is intended to encourage investment in low-carbon energy – and raise billions for the Treasury.
Under the existing rules, energy companies must generate a fixed amount of green energy every year, or else buy permits to pollute on the open market.
The new tax kicks in if the cost of these permits falls too low. From 2013, the ‘floor price’ of a permit needed to emit a tonne of carbon will be set at £16, rising to £30 by 2020.
The higher cost of electricity will be passed on to household and business customers with energy-guzzling industries hit hardest.
But the IPPR, a centre-left think-tank, says that householders, many of whom are already struggling to pay their fuel bills, will also suffer. It estimates that 30,000 to 60,000 more households will be pushed into fuel poverty – defined as spending more than 10 per cent of your disposable income on heat and light.
The think-tank also warned that the UK scheme could lead to lower carbon permit prices elsewhere in Europe – and so do nothing to ease pollution.
The soaring cost of fuel means that 5.5million households are already living in fuel poverty —including two million pensioner households. This is compared to 1.4million households in 2004."
