At Last: Britain Signals End Of Solar Subsidies- Aug 28, 2015
David Cameron has ordered ministers to ditch the ‘green crap’ blamed for driving up energy bills and making business uncompetitive, it is claimed. The Prime Minister, who once pledged to lead the ‘greenest government ever’, has publicly promised to ‘roll back’ green taxes, which add more than £110 a year to average fuel bills. But a senior Tory source said Mr Cameron’s message in private is far blunter. The source said: ‘He’s telling everyone, “We’ve got to get rid of all this green crap.” He’s absolutely focused on it.’—Daily Mail, 21 November 2013

Three Quarters Of UK Manufacturers Want Green & Climate Policies Reformed- Aug 27, 2015
As many as 73% of manufacturers want to see legislative reform of the UK’s current environmental and climate change policies, according to a new survey by the manufacturers organisation EEF. Respondents claimed that existing regulations are harming their international competitiveness. Earlier this year, EEF’s senior climate and environment policy adviser warned that large UK manufacturers could be forced to move their operations overseas if countries cannot agree a unilateral cap on emissions at the Paris climate talks, thanks to the burden of environmental regulation.—Brad Allen, Edie News, 27 August 2015

Odious approval of Amherst Island wind project- Aug 27, 2015
Ladies and Gentlemen of the government of Ontario,
One of our Ontario members, the Association to Protect Amherst Island, has advised us of the approval of a wind project that will cause a 25-year running massacre of “protected” wildlife. Amherst Island, as you know, is an internationally important migration stopover point for Monarch butterflies and many threatened bird and bat species. It is also a famous wintering area for 11 species of owls, all of which are protected by law, and all of which are particularly in danger where wind turbines happen to be erected.

China’s wind and solar developers are getting much less than they anticipated in handouts from the government because of a quirk in subsidy policies, threatening to stymie growth in the world’s biggest market for clean energy. —Bloomberg News, 21 August 2015
Our president calling Americans who dissent crazy- Aug 25, 2015
Is it politically correct to call people crazy? I’m very certain that if any of the Republican Presidential candidates called any group of people “crazy”, you would hear the screaming from coast to coast. Are we going to tolerate our President calling some Americans crazy?
Warning: Legalizing Assisted Death Is Not Acceptable In Canada Or Anywhere For That Matter- Aug 25, 2015
I can understand that a few people want to die but legalizing assisted death opens a huge can of worms for every citizen in Canada. How many people who don’t even request assisted death are going to get it just so that their organs can be harvested?!! That is a huge concern and with all the corruption that goes on in days of now; legalizing assisted death could lead to a mass slaughter of loved ones.

BBC Pulls Plug On Met Office- Aug 24, 2015
The BBC has ended a partnership with the Met Office dating back more than 90 years by deciding not to renew its contract to provide weather forecasts. The last bulletin presented by the Met Office will be broadcast in October 2016, 94 years after the first, in November 1922. Bill Giles, who led the Met Office’s team of BBC forecasters from 1983 to 2000, was among those in shock at the decision. “It’s a hell of a shame. It’s the end of an era,” he said.—Nicholas Hellen, The Sunday Times, 24 August 2015

Britain Sides With Eastern Europe On Non-Binding Renewables Target- Aug 20, 2015
Britain and Germany will line up on opposite sides of a European Union green energy debate starting next month on how to meet agreed renewable fuel targets for the next decade. The 28 member states agreed climate and energy goals last October, but to make it easier to get a deal, the decision went only as far as a framework. So far, the 2030 renewable goal is binding only at EU-wide level and the challenge is to ensure it is met as the bloc as a whole cannot be fined for infringement. Germany, which is pushing through its Energiewende, or shift from nuclear to green energy, wants binding laws. In the opposite camp, Britain aligned with the Czech Republic in a joint paper urging a “light-touch and non-legislative” approach.—Barbara Lewis, Reuters, 19 August 2015
