Greenie politicians policies put 1.5 million UK jobs at risk!

                               A report by Emily Gosden(Daily Telegraph) reveals that 1.5 million UK manufacturing jobs are at risk due to green policies imposed by Brussels.  Business for Britain BFB says that EU policies are to blame for up to 9% of energy bill costs for industry and this can rise to 16 % by 2030.  Manufacturers are now considering moving their operations abroad where energy is cheaper, risking devastating job loses in the UK.  More than 1.5 million people are employed in energy-intensive industries such as metals, ceramics and glass with 363000 in direct employment.  BFB says that opting out of EU renewable targets could cut energy bills.  BFB estimates that help to meet EU energy laws could be as much as £93 billion!  The EU laws have been fully implemented by the Cameron conservative led government.  The coming general election will give voters the opportunity to give their response to Mr Cameron and his greenie policies.

British Antarctica Survey Team lose power at Halley VI base.


CFact reports(7 August) thirteen members of the British Antarctic Survey were trapped and in danger of freezing to death when their base, Halley VI lost power in temperatures of -55.4celsius.  Power has been partially restored but all science activities have been suspended and emergency plans to abandon some of Halley`s eight modules have been prepared.  The station cannot be reached for months so the danger is very serious.  In fact if they lose power again they could freeze to death. Marc Merano of Climate Depot reports that the incident occurred during the height of the Antarctic winter while southern sea ice is at or near record highs.Halley VI is located on the Brunt Ice Shelf on 150 meter thick ice.

Letter by Tom Harris(International Climate Science Coalition) in the St Louis Post Dispatch

     Tom Harris Executive Director of the International Climate Science Coalition has just published an excellent letter in the St Louis Post dispatch.  St Louis Post Dispatch. Letter by tom Harris (ICSC)

                  The Rev Dr Gerald Durley is certainly right to alert us to "our moral obligation to act and urge action on climate for those communities hit hardest by its impacts"("we must speak with one voice about climate change"  July 31). Across the world people are suffering due to the effects of dangerous climate change.  Yet aid agencies are unable to secure sufficient funds to help them because, of the $1 billion spent globally every day on climate finance, only 6 percent of it goes to helping vulnerable people adapt to climate change today.   The rest is spent trying to stop climate phenomena that might happen in the distant future.  This is immoral, effectively valuing the lives of people yet to be born more than those in need today.

                  By promoting the scientifically unfounded belief that we can control the climate of Earth merely by regulating our carbon dioxide emissions, environmental groups are unwittingly encouraging the continuation of this scandal, one of the greatest ethical tragedies of our time.  I hope Rev Durley can speak out about this ongoing injustice.
