UK Government Agrees To Starve Environment of Life Giving CO2

May 15, 2011

CO2phobia is at fever pitch. I mean, if you were going to talk about toxic substances connected to fossil fuel use, you could talk about many plastics that pose a danger to human health, or you could talk about the mercury in coal.

But these things are not a problem apparently.

“The new budget puts the government on target to meet a reduction by 2050 of 80% of carbon emissions compared with 1990 levels. The committee has said that to reach this carbon emissions should be cut by 60% by 2030.

Ministers believe that major companies involved in developing offshore wind technology – such as Siemens, Vestas and General Electric – will now be keener to invest in Britain, knowing it is committed to a huge expansion in renewable energy. It is also hoped that the commitment to renewable energy – the committee says 40% of the UK’s power should come from wind, wave and tide sources by 2030 – will stimulate new industries.”

Plants need CO2. With the possibility of food shortages (predicted by, among other people, Malthusian environmentalists), wouldn’t it make sense to have some CO2 increase that may benefit crop yields? CO2 has been much much higher in history than it is today.

As for the govt’s solutions, wind power is a joke. Maybe solar or geothermal would be better? But, no. Don’t want you to have power when the wind stops. Maybe unleash some of that Tesla technology? Oh, sorry, I didn’t say that. It doesn’t exist does it. ‘My bad’.

Back to the reservation, subject. Your calorie rations are spent. Who do you think you are – Royalty?
