A sort of wind powered green socialist utopia? That sounds like Alex Salmonds vision of an independant Scotland so your wish may yet come true. I think you'd also have a better chance of the headcases moving to Scotland then to Greenland and once they are all there we can simply build a line of coal fired power stations this side of Hadrians Wall. These will provide power to Scotland when the wind isn't blowing but at a much higher price thus subsidising cheap electricity for everyone in England.

Sounds a bit like HHGTTG where they sent all the hairdressers, telephone handset sanitisers etc off in a spaceship as the planet was doomed.

"How on Earth can the prime minister justify paying billions of pounds of subsidy to French power companies when the chancellor is slashing welfare budgets for poor people in Britain and there are a million young people unemployed?"

Yeah because renewables don't cost anything do they?
So what about the subsidies which go to windfarm owners like E.On (Germany), Dong (Denmark), RWE (Germany) and EdF (France) who then buy turbines from Siemens (Germany) and Vestas (Denmark).

Eastern Europe May Block EU Green Lobby For Good

Poland is lobbying its neighbors on the European Union's less-affluent eastern edge as it seeks to block efforts by the regional group to sharply reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, arguing that the planned cuts will hurt economic growth and fuel inflation. The European Commission has drafted a proposal to slash carbon-dioxide output by 2050 to levels so low that Polish officials say they would virtually rule out the use of fossil fuels to generate electricity. Warsaw vetoed the plan at a meeting of EU environment ministers on Friday, and Polish officials say they are now starting to gain the support of its neighbors including the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania in a bid to block the initiative permanently.

That is an excellent piece and one which I will add to my comments whenever Black the Big Green publishes his bile again.

Read that the other day - Jo's blog is one of the increasing number of climate realist blogs on my feed reader.

It's the obvious reporting bias and unwillingness to criticise the warmists that really boils my piss about people like Black. How could he not condemn Glieck?

Ah well, if it's in order to indulge in such vandalism, we have a green light to slap graffiti all over Cameron's house. Not forgetting Huhne's house, of course, and his successor's house.

There would have been a time when 'environmentalists' would have been the people aggressively protesting about the despoiling of our countryside by these monstrosities but now they're the people who want them so the rest of us, who aren't really the protesting type, just get ignored. No wonder people are sick of politicians when common sense seems to be being completely forgotten.

It is incredibly strange isn't it?! It's almost as they don't actually care about the environment at all, they simply take on a political stance behind the curtain of being eco conscious....

They believe that they are saving the planet. There is nothing nobler. All other considerations pale in comparison. Insanity.

Quite.

It amazes (actually, no it doesn't) me that the "Green" movement bleat about "securing the future of our children" via the use of - amongst other things - wind farms.

When what will really happen is future generations will wonder where uninterrupted views of countryside went.

Cognitive dissonance.

What puzzles me it that on the one hand they bleat about thinking of future children yet another branch of the same insanity is happy to suggest the planet's population should be hugely reduced from even its present numbers almost overnight - or in other words stop breeding, NOW!

Either they are very disconnected thinkers or they (the 'leaders' at least) are charlatan liars and self publicising opportunists. More likely the collective leaderships have their full complement of individuals with both characteristics and many in between.

The bottom line, in my view, is that taking the human preference for 'development' and 'progress' (good and bad, it's part of the psyche that defines humanity) and creating 'stuff' and quenching that need globally (no other way would work) would entirely destroy the species by one means or another. What would be the point of human invention in a world in which such thing were frowned upon? You might as well suggest that large cats be retrained to take up arable farming.
