The WWF have taken time out from controlling the UN IPCC by the back door to produce a politically correct religious tome about how Britain could get 90% of its energy needs from renewables by 2030, without, the need for either coal fired or nuclear power stations.
This is the silly season for warming alarmists as they prepare to commit terrible sins against the Environment by flying to Durban for COP17, so it is no real wonder that this load of recycled Greenwash is being pushed hard.
The report is more of the same lies about the affordability and the benefits of renewables to the economy, all underlined with the oxymoron of Green jobs:
The old dangerous levels of Climate Change tale, Britain produces just 1.7% of global CO2 emissions, in effect negligible; the assumption that energy prices will keep rising is at best erroneous, and at worst, a downright Green lie, even the cheerleader for the Church of Climatology in Britain, Chris Huhne, after a serious about turn, says that shale gas has halved the price of gas in the US and will reduce energy prices in Britain.
Green jobs are just another Green lie, a recent report by the US House of Representatives Budget Committee concluded that the history of Green jobs is one of universal failure, Spain provides a chilling example of the Green jobs lie, Spain invested early on in the Green economy and found thatevery Green job created cost 2.2 jobs in traditional industries, now the Spanish economy is in flames.
A recent leaked report from the European Union let the genie out of the bottle with the admission that energy prices will rise sharply up to 2030 and beyond, and that the more wind and solar power in the energy system, the faster prices would rise, when even the warming alarmist EU admits that wind and solar are ridiculously expensive, what the WWF hopes to gain by pushing a discredited lie can only be speculated at.
There in lies the problem for the WWF dream, shale gas is affordable and can easily run power stations and it does not require tax payer Green subsidies to be economically viable, neither does it require 100% backup for days when there is no wind, the wrong type of wind or the bird choppers are frozen solid.
