Cable’s Ill Wind
Blows £4.5 Million on Replacing Air Con That Made it Warmer

Vince Cable has wasted an almost unbelievable £4,582,264 of taxpayers’ money since 2010 on replacing an air conditioning system that hippies claim made the planet warmer. As Guido revealed in the Sun yesterday, BIS is trying to blame the European Union for the splurge. Bonkers Brussels directives have forced his department to throw out their old system on the grounds the coolant used apparently contributed to global warming. Instead of telling the penpushers where to go, Vince has wasted millions. At least the taxpayer is safe in the knowledge that the new BIS air con uses “more modern and energy efficient equipment that meets legal requirements”Chilling.

DECC’s Green Deal Flops as Only 36 Sign Up

The Green Deal is a giant white elephant. Figures snuck out at the end of term show, as of the end of last month, of the 306 Green Deal plans for making properties energy efficient, 270 are “new” plans, where someone has simply asked for a quote. There have been only a measly 36 deals where the customer has actually signed a plan and energy efficiency measures are set to be installed. None so far have been completed.

Another stunning success for the reshuffle ripe Department for Energy and Climate Change.

380 Degrees

Another Tory MP  has let rip at 38 Degrees. Guy Opperman has written to the pinko lobbyists declaring he cannot let their “hypocrisy and duplicity on this issue go unchallenged.” Reacting to the group’s campaign to badger MPs who voted against the Tim Yeo carbon amendment, the Hexham MP writes:

“It is widely accepted that the amendment proposed by Tim Yeo MP would have led to higher costs for business and, more importantly, consumers like my constituents. On the one hand you are calling for lower gas & electricity bills, and on another you fully support an amendment which would hike fuel bills for my constituents. Going against the interests of your own supporters and misinforming them on the consequences of hasty decarbonisation… is both opportunistic and hypocritical.”

Coherency has never been the left’s strongest point…

Ed Davey Tries to Shut Down Climate Change Debate, Again

When the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change isn’t telling newspapers what they can and cannot write relating to his brief, he just goes for out and out abuse of his opponents. Here is not so liberal or democratic Ed Davey today:

“Of course there will always be those with a vested interest in the status quo who seek to create doubt where there is certainty. And you will always get crackpots and conspiracy theorists who will deny they have a nose on their face if it suits them.”

Davey himself would never have a vested interest, other than last year declaring that his brother works for City law firm Herbert Smith, lawyers to eco-spivs, of course. Some might say going after conflicted climate change sceptics in the week after Tim Yeo was jettisoned and replaced on the Energy and Climate Change select committee by a man with shares in Shell is a bit brave. His entire brief is rotten to the core with MPs with vested interests…

Yeo Sees the Light Over Climate Change

Here is everyone’s favourite green Tory Tim Yeo back in 2009:

“The dying gasps of the deniers will be put to bed. In five years time, no one will argue about a man-made contribution to climate change.”

And here he was last night on the perils of man made climate change:

“The first thing to say is it does not represent any threat to the survival of the planet. None at all. The planet has survived much bigger changes than any climate change that is happening now. Although I think the evidence that the climate is changing is now overwhelming, the causes are not absolutely clear. There could be natural causes, natural phases that are taking place.”

Presumably he’ll be buying shares in Shell tomorrow…

Treasury Kick Back at Greenpeace G.O. O.G.

gTeam Osborne are kicking back at this morning’s Greenpeace fracking stunt. Occupying his constituency office seems to have backfired somewhat; a Treasury source tells Guido: “we are happy for Greenpeace to draw attention to the fact that George is fighting for cheaper energy bills for all”. Something of an own goal…

Frack & G.O. in Tatton

frack-and-go

Across the street from George Osborne’s constituency office is a village green on a roundabout where teams of Greenpeace activists have constructed a huge mock-up fracking operation – presumably to show the Chancellor how safe the process can be. The drivers of the 4x4s passing the stunt will be reminded just how much shale energy will save in fuel costs. Tatton is set to become the Dallas of England sitting as it does atop reserves which will provide cheap energy for the UK’s future as we dash for gas…
