Man visited Hanergy factory

Ah yes Tomo.
It's a shoo in to be adapted for CBBC. Nice Little Earner.

Might write one myself, actually.

somehow I doubt Ms. Rowling is worried about George Marshall and chums eating into her royalties. It looks like a variety of vanity publishing from where I'm sat. No doubt they're trawling kiddie climate fiction past BBC producers - eh?

As to the content one does rather suspect that it likely to be more Chris Rapley rather than Shakespeare....

In fairness most children aren't that stupid.
They know that Orcs and Voldemort and Dangerous Climate Change are just monsters made up to scare them for thrills.

But I am surprised that the right-wing readers of the Telegraph aren't lauding a science fiction book that has Government intervention (carbon rationing) as the monster.

It sounds very right-wing to me.
But that just shows that Green is not left-wing - it's something else.

Heh... George Marshall bailing away pointlessly protesting innocence in the Telegraph comments, obviously not willing to declare his activist antics/cv . eesh! talk about denial....

His fellow travelers at Climate Outreach rather give the activist game away.Denier!!! l :-)

My sons (No2 is 19, so no global warming in his lifetime) roll their eyes with boredom whenever I bring up the global warming subject. There's no-one more immune to the glowbull worming message than a bored teen/twenty yo. That said, No1 is fully convinced that Gillard was the victim of dark forces rather than her own lies, incompetence and the will of the people.

stewgreen, I was hoping that the Guardian may have invested ;-)

The warmists have been riding high on the affordability of Chinese solar. I've wondered how much of that was due to speculation, poor build and over production. Part of the Chinese government enthusiasm for putting up solar seems to be a way to recoup its own investments and subsidies. Solar is looking a lot like a dutch bulb.

Re that Telegraph article about kids being brainwashed by Cli-fi novels ..George Marshall the climate Outreach founder, leading the campaign pops up in the Telegraph commnets trying to defend himself ..he didn't succeed.
- I guess future books will be mandated to have parts praising Big Brother .err I mean mentioing Cimate Change.
- Talk of British pensioners dying of cold will be banned from books I guess.

You've seen the story on the top right "Seen elsewhere" about solarPV coating company Hanenergy shares dropping by $19bn 3 days ago , losing about half their value. Well we know it's difficult to understand trhe BBC Pension funds green investments gos it's mostly done through 3rd party investment funds, but the ONLY headline BBCnews on this story is
"Hanergy says in 'good financial' position despite share plunge" *
yet the same article contains another quote
"Investors are paying $50 for every dollar of profit the company makes," said David Kuo, chief executive of The Motley Fool Singapore
"When expectation overtakes reality, reality eventually wins. The market is experiencing a dose of reality."
Other green investment firms also fell co they had invested in Hanenergy more
*hangon that rather gentle headline was changed from "Hanergy defends financial position" that that same BBC page originally used
