Ex-Centrica Lobbyist Becomes Number Ten SpAd

Brainbox Tara Singh is Dave’s new Energy adviser. A former Centrica public affairs manager, Tara is another Policy Exchange graduate who has made it to Downing Street. Makes a change from the PM’s Eton clique.

A welcome hire from outside the “chumocracy”, she only went to Malvern…

    Another PR airhead.

    Cameron needs someone with experience in the real world, someone who’s grafted on an oil rig or done time in a coal mine.

    Taxing pensioners fuel by an extra 12% to pay Camerons father in law a £1000 a day.

    Giving the French Government control over our nuclear build.

    Taxing the poor workers from hard working families off the roads & out of work through the highest petrol tax in the world.

    And this is what passes for Conservative energy policy?

    Must admit considering how many MPs seemed to get jailed these days you can be sure to get someone who has done some time.

    Most of it is inherited from the energy policy of Labour set by a certain energy minister called Ed Miliband.

    Conservatives have stopped Labour’s fuel duty and have stopped the wild subsidies for wind farms and solar panels.

    He’s deregulating, letting people do what they want rather than letting the State select who can and who cannot get married. If two adults want to get married, let them get on with it.

    Utter tosh – the EU “watermelon” energy agenda is the the Tory policy.

    Killing 5000 pensioners a year via fuel poverty.

    No windfarm subsidies have been stopped by Cameron at all – that is just untrue.

    The only party that will tear up the appalling 2008 Ed Miliband bill is UKIP – thats why I vote for them.

    The state is an Ass says:

    No he’s not. Until now marriage had fuck all to do with the state and was simply a thing that one man and one woman entered into.

    If homosexuals want to enter into a union other than a civil contract then they should invent their own rather than try to muscle into the other club.

    But we all know that the truth is that the state is doing this in the name of State supervised equality. Which is ridiculous as two men do not equal one man and one woman.

    All the state had to do was nothing and let homosexuals invent their very own thing.

    The only country in the world to have reduced its CO2 emissions is the US. This is not because of policy but the cheapness of fracking gas which is leading to its use in more and more applications (latest is trucking with conversion to gas as fuel.)
    In spite of this world CO2 levels are remorselessly increasing http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/ with no indication of any human intervention.
    The last time CO2 levels were 400ppm the temperature was 8 degrees C warmer than today, but it takes centuries to warm the planet up due its thermal mass.
    We should not expect politicians to achieve anything meaningful as it requires action on a world basis and China alone is building a new coal fired power station about every week. EU rules cannot affect this.

    I neither deny nor accept, merely question says:

    No – that would be the majority of scientists who attest that on the balance of probabilities, climate change has an element of man made negative influences. Just that no two scientists who all believe it to be so can agree how much, how little, how permanent, how imminent the dangers.
    Global warming got dropped as a research funding mantra, BTW, because the pesky planet stopped warming up on the hockey stick prediction about 15 years ago, so Climate Change was born, as the cobbled together, FrankenWhine offspring of funding and fear.

    I’d like to know when the earth’s climate was EVER “stable”, over a period of say 20 generations, or .0000000000227 of the Earths’ existence?

    Warming air does not take a long time. Try living in the desert at 2000m; 54C at midday and drops to below 30c at midnight. Where there is high humidity , then temp drop is not so great. Remember specific heat capacity of water much greater than nitogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and methane.

    Carbon dioxide levels have been in the 1000s ppm- plants rather like it. CO2 has been above 400pm during ice ages.

    In 2013, after 17 years of no statistically significant global warming, And 5 years of increasingly cold winters in the northern hemisphere an ever-growing number of Climastrologists realise the game is up and are making good their escape before the CAGW bubble bursts. In case you haven’t noticed, the major energy companies are up to their necks in the renewable energy subsidies scam.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
