Madness: UK commits climate suicide

Looney (image thanks to Guido Fawkes)

Chris Huhne will be remembered as The Man that Screwed Britain. In twenty years’ time, when wind farms are standing idle, with conventional power stations all past their sell-by date, and Britain is a third world country, the long-suffering population, sitting in the cold and the dark, will look back at the climate madness inflicted on the country by Huhne and cry “Bring back hanging.”

And there isn’t a hint of caution, just ploughing on, full steam ahead into the abyss, with legally mandated emissions cuts of 60% by 2030 and 80% by 2050 on 1990 levels (1990 levels!!!), whilst at the same time, China and India just continue with business as usual (virtually), offsetting many times over anything that Britain does:

Chris Huhne will announce a long-term programme that will put Britain at the forefront of the battle against climate change.

Cabinet ministers have agreed a far-reaching, legally binding “green deal” that will commit the UK to two decades of drastic cuts in carbon emissions. The package will require sweeping changes to domestic life, transport and business [translation: reducing the UK to a third world nation – Ed] and will place Britain at the forefront of the global battle against climate change.

The deal was hammered out after tense arguments between ministers who had disagreed over whether the ambitious plans to switch to more green energy were affordable. The row had pitted the energy secretary,Chris Huhne, who strongly backed the plans, against the chancellor, George Osborne, and the business secretary, Vince Cable, who were concerned about the cost and potential impact on the economy. [But we don’t want to worry about minor details like that. We’re SAVING THE PLANET!!!! – Ed]

However, after the intervention of David Cameron, Huhne is now expected to tell parliament that agreement has been struck to back the plans in full up to 2027. He will tell MPs that the government will accept the recommendations of the independent committee on climate change for a new carbon budget. The deal puts the UK ahead of any other state in terms of the legal commitments it is making in the battle to curb greenhouse gases. (breathlessly reported by The Guardian, of course – source)

It has been said before but I’ll say it again: goodnight Britain. It’s been nice knowing you, but I’m very glad I emigrated to Australia. Because you guys are well and truly screwed.

  1. This is a great quote, “Chris Huhne will announce a long-term programme that will put Britain at the forefront of the battle against climate change.” This has the hall mark of an army equiped with outdated armaments being asked to charge the fortifications of a defender with automatic weapons. And i don’t mean to imply that the battle is about climate,it’s about economic competitiveness.

  2. As It is generally the left side of politics that are pushing this green agenda, do we know what the UK Labor parties attitude is to this policy? It will be interesting to see what happens in domestic British politics especially if industry is affected. Recent figures showed that a large number of international companies have abandoned California due to their green policies. It is obvious that companies will desert these green zones if it is cost ihibitive to business. Logical really. I hope these pollies feel all warm & fuzzy about what they are doing, as it wont be warm there for long.

  3. Really? 2027?

    That’s a bizarre timeframe for any government. I mean, that’s the difference between Marty McFly riding a normal skateboard and using his hoverboard (1989 to 2015)

    It’s bizarre for any government to try and operate in this type of timeframe. 20 years into the future is so unknowable that it’s barely worth trying to work for. It’s like a 1970’s government trying to design a more efficient postal system without realising fax and email would largely replace it.

    Well in twenty years Britain will most likely be islamic caliphate so it really does not really matter.

  5. Andy G55 says:

    I think the coal powered stations should be shut down immediately.. maybe people would then WAKE UP !!!

    • Great idea. I can see you’ve really thought this through.

    • Yes, shut the coal fired power stations, but then continue to mine & export coal to other countries who have no issue with carbon “pollution” *rolls eyes*. makes sense….

  6. As an ex pat who long ago escaped the nutcases that have run the UK into the ground, I didn’t think things could get any worse but this is mind boggling. I see this green madness infecting every country, some worse than others, but the UK takes the cake. She is truly being screwed by political elite and the watermelons, plain and simple, it’s true the inmates/lunatics are running the Asylum!

    Pseudo trade barriers anyone! Oh the left just love this bigger government.

  8. I think that after the council elections the Lib Dems are going into total melt-down mode…I think the Tories will keep this in check.

  9. I would hate to be in the UK.
    Just checked the Labour website and they also support the reduction in carbon emissions.
    Bad luck if you disagree with the climate change issue, you have no choice whichever way you go…..

  10. The UK & The EU seem to be on the path to economic oblivion. However, I remain optimistic that the US and now Canada may prevent a global descent into the green swill. It’s a good sign in the US, when a potential Republican presidential candidiate has his campaign derailed because he previously became incolved in climate change propoaganda, as has happened to Newt Gingrich. Also apparently in Canada, the MSM don;t bother printing climate porn anymore. We in Australia just have to fend off the carbon tax and it may be enough to send a global message to the water melons.

  11. James Delingpole (“always a good read”, too!) describes the madness as

    Cameron’s price for saving his Coalition: the destruction of Britain:

    1.Reaffirm Britain’s commitment to the Climate Change Act, whose “decarbonisation” measures, by the government’s own modest estimates, will cost the taxpayer £18 billion a year till 2050.

    2. Encourage rent-seeking.

    3. Destroy British jobs (3.7 for every fake, taxpayer-subsidised green one he creates, according to Verso’s analysis)

    4. Drive up electricity prices.

    5. Hamper industry with more tax and regulation.

    6. Destroy the British countryside with wind turbines which chew up wildlife, blight views and which, even though they don’t work are unlikely to be removed for generations because of the prohibitive costs.

    Please can I take back that 4 out of 10 I gave Cameron’s Coalition the other day? I fear I may have been overly generous.

    Needless to say, Huhne is not Delingpole’s idea of an edible serve of yoghurt!
