Fire at Tilbury Power Station, recently converted to burn biomass. The biomass is burning alright, just not where it should be.

Wonder if that was in the risk/benefit analysis?

"Donald Trump promises £10m to fight wind farm construction in Britain".

That kind of money could make all the difference for the anti-wind lobby. Frankly, I don't think it would take much to wreck the wind-turbine gravy train - very few people like them and in this time of austerity it would be a populist move to end the subsidies.

An extraneous 'br' stuck itself onto the end of your link. It should be:

Nice to see the outrage being expressed about the government's lack of committment to, er, subsidies!

Did anyone see The Big Question on BBC1 at 10 am on Sunday morning yesterday? They had a piece entitled "Should we repent in lent for the planet". They actually had 2 sceptics on who scored quite a few points, including making a pretty good point to Lembit Opik about going to see Richard Lindzen at the House of Commons. Its available from BBC iplayer in the UK, the topic starts at 46 min in, with the first sceptic at about 49 min. Worth watching to the end.

"Norwegian taxpayers will be livid to learn that almost 40 million Norwegian Kroners, nearly £3.5m of their cash has been put directly at risk by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) through ‘financial mismanagement’ in Tanzania.

These contracts are often awarded to ideologically driven organisations like the WWF, in this case for ‘environmental civil society projects’ and assisting in the delivery of local data on forest carbon stocks.

The Norwegian government has now suspended these two projects while it investigates embezzlement.

This begs a serious question – why do we continue to trust NGOs with opaque processes to perform work that sees so much of Western taxpayers’ money poured into inane projects?


In 2010, WWF received over €88m from ‘public sector finances’ (our money, basically) including reams of cash from DFID, the World Bank and USAID. This accounted for 17 percent of their budget in that year, when they only spent 55 percent of their money on their ‘programmes’. 18 percent of their money was spent on ‘fundraising’.

You get what we’re saying here, right? You and I are paying for WWF to fundraise. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now millions of pounds/euros/dollars (delete as appropriate) are being placed at risk of embezzlement and misappropriation.


It’s only a matter of time until we wake up to just how much of our money is squandered on these projects every day. If you thought the EU was bad… you ain’t seen nothing yet."
