Jet Setting Green Leader Demands “Alternative to Aviation”

JET SET

No messing about from the leader of the Scottish Green Party, Patrick Harvie, in this thundering op-ed warning: “we need an alternative to aviation“.

Harvie says long haul flights mean “hundreds of millions of tonnes of additional greenhouse gas emissions” are being pumped into the atmosphere.

Apparently putting strict restrictions on flying wouldn’t affect normal people because “70 per cent of flights are taken by the wealthiest 15 per cent”.

Harvie might soon be experiencing some turbulence from his colleagues when they find out he recently crossed the Atlantic on a climate change “leadership program” junket:

“The costs of meals, travel and accommodation within the US, and occasional expenses, were met by the US Department of State Cultural Affairs Division to a total of $8,100″

Gaia asked Harvie if he made the trip by plane or boat, but alas a reply was not forthcoming. Plane stupid.

MPs Being Lobbied By Select Committee Candidates Beg: “Leaf Me Alone!”

Voting is underway for the various Commons select committee chairmanships that are up for grabs – and the excitement among MPs being lobbied for votes has reached fever pitch. Sorta.

Behold, the greatest piece of campaign literature Guido has seen yet, from Labour MP Barry Gardiner, who wants to be chair of the Environmental Audit Committee:

They’ll be re-leafed when it’s all over…

German Children Indoctrinated

german youth

In a remarkably tone-deaf piece piece, the Washington Post’s Catherine Rampell has written a glowing tribute to the German education system’s climate change indoctrination policy. Who wouldn’t want their kids to be learning about “sustainability” in English, French, Spanish, art, music, history, maths, biology, chemistry, physics and PE?

“Take Emmy-Noether-Schule, an 800-student secondary school in east Berlin I visited recently. Educators there consider climate change so pressing that they integrate it into just about every class you can think of (including, when the instructor is so inclined, Latin). About a quarter of the content in the 10th-grade English textbook, for example, is about threats to planet Earth. That means when kids learn to use the conditional mood in English, their grammar exercises rely on sentences like this: “If we don’t do something about global warming, more polar ice will start to melt.”

Likewise, in an 11th-grade geography class dedicated entirely to sustainability, students write poetry about klimawandel (climate change). My favorite couplet, from an ode by student Hannah Carsted: “The water level rises/ The fish are in a crisis.””

Sounds a little ominous…

BBC BIAS: Paris Climate Week Special

bbc green bias

Climate Week Paris is upon us and the BBC are going into overdrive. Environment analyst Roger Harrabin is leading the charge…

In an article today, Harrabin slavishly turns a comment by Unilever Chief executive Paul Polman into a slobbering 700 word quasi-editorial, unquestioningly repeating Polman’s assertion that Unilever has faced business costs that were €300m-to-€400 million higher than normal due to extreme weather.

Then, in an effort to remain fair and balanced, Harrabin informed readers that other business people don’t share Polman’s views with a classic oil-barons-own-politics smear.

“But for every CEO who makes promises in Paris this week, others will warn against a rush away from CO2. America’s fossil fuel giants, the Koch Brothers, are spending $900 million on political advertising to make their case.”

In fact the Koch’s aren’t spending $900 million on anything – they are part of a group of 300 donors who plan to spend that amount on next years presidential race.. as do the other side.

Green Party Terrorist’s Links to Natalie Bennett

ALF-TERRORIST

The Green Party are utilising the services of a twice convicted Animal Liberation Front terrorist to help them fight for the Wyre Forest constituency. The man listed on the Green Party website as Ronald Lee, the”Campaign Manager” for PPC Natalie McVey, is none other than Ronnie Lee, the founder of the Animal Liberation Front. The ALF were regarded by the FBI as a terrorist organisation…

Ronnie Lee is notorious for his view that there is an animal “holocaust” going on and that violence is necessary for it to be stopped.

Animal liberation is a fierce struggle that demands total commitment. There will be injuries and possibly deaths on both sides.”

Lee who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for ALF activities, has since distanced himself from the organisation telling an interviewer in 2010 that he disagrees with “the whole non-violent thing associated with the ALF” as he doesn’t “see anything morally wrong in using violence against animal abusers.”

ronnie lee bennett

As well as being listed as the contact for the Wyre Forest Green Party and being one of Natalie McVey’s signatories, Ronnie is the co-founder of the Green Party allied group Greens for Animal Protection which, worryingly considering Ronnie’s past, aims “to defend and improve the Green Party’s policies on animal protection.Nathalie Bennett is a supporter of Greens for Animal Protection…

Dear C of E, If God Didn’t Want Us to Burn Coal, He Wouldn’t Have Put So Much of it in the Ground

article-0-18DEFEFF000005DC-434_964x704

The Church of England is jumping on the divestment bandwagon by announcing they will slash investments in fossil fuel companies. By leveraging their £9 billion pension pot investments, the Church hopes they can protect the the world’s poor from global warming.

According to Bishop Nick Holtam, the ‘lead bishop on the environment,’ “Climate change is the most pressing moral issue in our world.”

The most pressing? How about the 4 MILLION deaths from smoke inhalation by people who don’t have access to the coal generated electricity the Bishops are heating their palaces with?

“Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.” Luke 12:48b

Green Activists: Please Think of the Environment!

Well, this is a mature way to run an election campaign. The video above shows the reception area of the tallest residential building on the south coast, which had just received a delivery of the Brighton & Hove Independent.

In pop three Green activists, who then proceed to rip out the front page UKIP adverts from every copy. What a waste of paper!

Newsweek Blames Nepal Earthquake on Climate Change

newsweek climate

They’re still pulling bodies out of the rubble in Nepal, but already Newsweek have come out of the blocks to blame the tragedy on climate change. In a piece titled “More Fatal Earthquakes to Come,Newsweek tastelessly revealed what they claimed to be  “the untold – and terrifying – story behind the earthquake“:

“It’s the ebb and flow of rainwater… Recently discovered, that causal factor is seen by a growing body of scientists as further proof that climate change can affect the underlying structure of the Earth”

Apparently our rising sea levels are literally pushing down on the earth’s crust and pressuring faultines into being more active. Funny then, that there’s 700 years of regularly recorded earthquakes in Nepal…
