Martin: She's never been away.

"Green energy to cost consumers £400 over next five years"

The money will go solely to paying for otherwise uneconomic offshore wind turbines, onshore wind farms, biomass plants, landfill gas sites and hydro power plants, new figures show.
The first analysis of newly agreed prices paid to “green” generators, carried out by the Taxpayers’ Alliance, shows that the total subsidy will be nearly £22 billion by 2020.
The subsidies are paid for by consumers and businesses through their annual bills and passed to the green energy generators.
Half of energy bills are paid by business, with the other half by domestic consumers, and the total subsidy divided among British households equals £425 per household.

This is destruction of wealth on an epic scale.

A troll, motivated by hatred as it has itself admitted, is back.

stewgreen: that CCC "IPCC Mythbusting" article has attracted one more comment. Nothing yet from a BH regular however : (

He/she ("ClimateLearner") makes the excellent point that "Surely here of all places we could expect to get a more convincing article." So you see, stew, the article may be replete with "disgusting scare-porn" but it's possible to make a perceptive point without being dragged into the gutter. Don't forget that CCC is headed by Monbiot and Lucas - Question Time regulars as you pointed out yesterday - so true believers do read it. What better place therefore to get our message politely and firmly to a place where it normally isn't heard? Perhaps we spend too much time debating with each other - or wasting time being excluded from CiF?

Oh noes - GMG go all watery

It worse than we thought the oceans are going to dissolve all the coral reefs like Mentos in Coca-Cola and all the fishies are going to die - you know the rest.

This from the gutless self serving gits who won't do anything about overfishing etc. and didn't pay attention in GCSE chemistry (if Fiona's technical education actually went that far) just miserable tosh - made worse by Google pushing it out via their news feeds.

Here's Robin's link CCC IPCC Mythbusting sorry I can't bare to look at it .. It's full on disgusting scare-porn - using a dirty chimney to represent colorless CO2, and 3 lying graphs saying sea ice fell massively this year while measured ocean heat continued a massive upward trend .
- good comment Robin, but I would guess to write lies like that they must be PR professionals in the pay of big green

Got in ahead of me there, Phillip!
I take it that's your comment quoting Lindzen and Easterbrook.
I often wonder where we would be now if Santer had take up farming instead of science!
