The (Carefully Planned) Global Food Crisis: Dutch Farmers To Protest EU Attck On Food Supply And Their Livelihood

 

 


Dutch Farmers protest move to mitigate cow farts by reducing herd sizes - Picture: Fox News

Farmers from all over the Netherlands are to protest policies imposed by their government in collaboration with the authoritarian unelected bureaucrats of the European Union, which if fully implemented would reduce the number of livestock kept on farms in the country by up to 35%.

In a typical example of government / mainstream media propaganda doublespeak, press and broadcast news reports are leading on deceptive headlines  such as “Dutch farmers protest emissions targets”, but this is perfect example of lying by only telling part of the truth.

The policy farmers are protesting against is a 25 BILLION Euro scheme ained at “reducing levels of nitrogen pollution” which taken at face value seems to fit in with the globalist projects to reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions (and global population but they do not mention that bit,) by 55%, but the devil is in the detail. The policy is actually an attack on the Dutch farming industry,the government and their European Union paymasters aim to achieve this by (among other things) “paying some Dutch livestock farmers to relocate or exit the industry”.

The reality of this will involve reducing the number of pigs, chickens and cows by about thirty per cent  and that is what the farmers in the picture are being protesting about – a deliberate and planned (in Davos at the World Economic Forum we guess, contraction of the Dutch agricultural sector, destroying the  the livelihood of thousands of farmers, and adding to the disruption of food supplies already cause by the the EU / NATO backed Ukrainian war. As The Netherlands produces a massive food surplus this globalist policy will affect the lives of hundreds of millions of people, fuelling spiralling living costs as well as creating wholly avoidable shortages..

The bigger picture

Claiming the scheme is about limiting nitrogen and ammonia emissions from urine and manure as well as CO2 emissions from livestock farming neatly ties the policy the one of the biggest lies of globalism, that climate change poses an existential threat to human civilisation. However it only takes the slightest degree of scepticism to see this in the broader context of the ongoing Great Reset, of which the created food crisis is a component.

As well as the food surplus it produces, the agricultural sector of The Netherlands is one of the largest exporters of meat in the world and THE largest in Europe. Reducing its output by a third could have huge implications for the global food supply, especially in Western Europe is the equivalent of taking Ukrainian and Russian grain and oil seed crops out of the food supply chain.

Perhaps more troubling is how this could become a precedent for further5 globalist actions against the people of the developed world.

One thing we know for certain about the people behind this whole globalist push to destabilise the societies of developed nations is that they are so lacking in imagination they are utterly predictable, which gives us a big clue as the who we are dealing with. This isn’t the first “pay farmers not to farm” scheme launched in the last year – both the UK and US have put such schemes in place – but a government paying to reduce it’s own meat production? That is a first but it was always going to be the next step.

Like the EU's 'set - aside' of the 1980s and 90s and the more recent 'rewilding' policy which repectively paide farmers not to produce food from good quality land and paid farmers to let prime agrigultural land return to nature, this latest move is completly in line with the globalist strategy for transferring wealth from the propsperous populations of developed nations to poor countries.

That it is ostensibly being done to 'protect the environment' or 'save the planet' or whatever bullshit cliche is in fashion this week makes it a big warning sign for the future. Denmark, Belgium and Germany are already considering similar policies.

Governments and business elites in the Western world seem to be enthusiastically embracing policies cooked up in insanity factories like Oxford (England),  Harvard (USA), Heidelberg (Germany) The Sorbonne (France), Ulm (Netherlands) and other leading Universities around the world.

Such idiocy as paying farmers to reduce the amount of food they produce…while (notionally) threatened with war…in the midst of a recession…facing record inflation as the cost of living spirals, and with food shortages already having led to food rationing.

Does that really make any sense?

That’s almost as crazy as refusing new oil and gas leases while the cost of domestic, industrial and transport fuel and power hit hitting new, record levels every day. Such insanity could only make sense to the kind of people who have spent their adult lives cocooned in universities studying stuff that the real world does not give a flying fuck about.

Indeed, in a world beset by a shortage of fertiliser due to sanctions against Russia and Belarus, one would have to be completely mad to complain about a manure surplus, let alone try to reduce it.

We’re well past the point where any of this could be considered accidental, the elites, those billionaire psychopaths and less rich but equally dangerous wannabees are doing this deliberately. It is part of an agenda that has been in velelopment for over a hundred years.

To put it bluntly, if the Davosocracy - that is the government, banks, global corporations and sura - national bureaucracies of the World Economic Forum were trying to impoverish and starve their own citizens, what would they be doing differently?

Dutch Protesters Pour Manure On Government Offices Over Industry-Killing Regulations

 from Zero Hedge

Dutch farmers who have been protesting for weeks over the government's radical plan to cut nitrogen emissions by 50% - 95% by 2030 have taken things to the next level - pouring manure on government offices in response to the plan which would cause widespread chaos - including the death of 1/3 of Dutch farms.

Pissed off protesters became aggressive with police last week, with angry farmers demanding that the Hague backtrack on their 'green' agenda.

Bloomberg also reported last week that several farmers showed up to parliament with cows in tow to protest the policy - with some threatening to slaughter them on the spot.

Russia Now Demands Rubles For Grain As World's Largest Wheat Exporter

 from Zero Hedge, 2 July 2022

After threatening to do so for a couple months now, Russia has pulled the trigger on expanding the list of commodities for which it demands payment in rubles to now include grain exports, effective Friday per a government legal website.

So now grain, sunflower oil and extracted meal are the next to follow the March decision to charge clients from "unfriendly" countries - including major customers in Europe - in rubles for natural gas instead of the normative dollars and euros.

On top of this move, recently Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev announced that Russia's agricultural products will go to "friendly countries" only, and according to "who needs it most" - a hugely significant statement sure to continue sowing uncertainty and chaos for the global food supply.

Via Farmdocdaily: Russia and Ukraine account for 14% of global wheat production and rank 1stand 5threspectively. Both countries are prominent exporters, providing nearly 30% of global wheat exports.  The EU, U.S., and Canada are also major producers and exporters of wheat.  China and India are major wheat producers, but are net importers and provide relatively small shares of global wheat exports.  Other countries with fairly large wheat export shares include Australia (8.4%), Argentina (6.6%), Kazakhstan (4.1%), and Turkey (3.4%).

Russian state media detailed further of the new decree published to a government law portal, "It also provides for a one-year extension of duties to be paid in the national currency in respect of exported sunflower oil and sunflower meal until August 31, 2023."

And further, "As part of the new payment mechanism, the base price for calculating the export duty on wheat will be 15,000 rubles (over $267) per ton."

While Russia has blamed Western sanctions aiming to punish and isolate the Russian economy for blowing back on the global food supply, and especially the Middle East and African countries already heavily reliant on Ukraine and Russia grain exports, G7 countries days ago at their summit in Germany blasted Moscow in a statement for what it called "a geopolitically motivated attack on global food security."

Claims That Ukraine's Retaking Of Snake Island Is A Major Blow For Putin Are Just Propaganda

  

Mainstream media reports echoing the narrative that with this tiny, undefensible rock in Ukrainian hands, the threat to Moscow’s Black Sea fleet will go up, and the risk of an amphibious assault on Odesa will go down, and that Ukraine's victory on Snake Island could be critical to reopening shipping lanes to grain trapped on the docks of Odessa are just more wishful thinking from the globalist community which still believes western sanctions are crushing Russia and Putin's regime will soon collapse leaving the western powers free to seize control of Russia's vast reserves of natrural gas, oil, nitrates (fertilizer,) and agricultural produce.

It is unlikely this hollow victory will spell the end of Vladimir Putin's ambitions to invade southern Ukraine and establish a land corridor from the current Ukraine / Russia border to The Crimean Peninsula and the port of Odessa.

Russia says its withdrawal from Snake Island was because The Kremlin has lost interest in the island which because of the island's vulnerability to missile and long range artillery attack render it strategically insignificant, but this move will make any amphibious assault on Odessa much harder.

Russian ownership of Snake Island made any attempt to export grain from Odesa almost impossible. However claims that Ukrainian occupation of Snake Island - which it will no doubt quickly populate with air and sea defences - has the potential to ease the global shortage of grain are somwhat hyperbolic.

This conflict has become a war of attrition. There are many factors which impact a war of attrition but t two types of military hardware can have a crucial impact. First is long range artillery. And second is the UAVs which really are what make the artillery effective. Because they tell the artillery where to aim.

According to unbiased information Russians are winning the UAV war with the Orlan-10 Unmanned reconnaiance vehicle. The Orlan-10 is very simple machine. A YouTube video shows someone analyzing the technology by taking one apart. And they were laughing at it because parts of it were held together by duct tape and the camera was a just an ordinary Canon camera that anyone could buy. We can laugh at these low - tech solutions but they mean these bits of kit are cheap, and the Russians have thousands of them as a consequence which in turn means the Russians can see everything along the battlefront. That is the half the issue of what is actually killing Ukrainian soldiers.

The drones that the Ukrainians are using are much more expensive and there are not that many of them. The Orlan-10 is basically a hobbyist level of technology. But it works! It's all that is necessary right now.

For a more complete analysis of the state of play on day 126 of the war:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRP1Nwy98Q8

That's from "War in Ukraine" and it is a thought-provoking analysis.

It should be obvious that wars are expensive and that  with a shaky economy at the best of times the Ukrainian government is desperate to find money which is why their front man Zelenskyyyyyyy the Clown is going round the world holding out the begging bowl. But in asking for more, and more advanced weapons they are shooting themselves in the foot for short-term money.

For example, let's take the farmers on whose grain and oil seed crops the Ukrainian economy is heavily dependent. The economic case for grain production in the Ukraine depended on the ability of brokers to export the grain through the Black Sea by ship. Without that there is no economic case for wholesale grain merchants to conclude futures contracts with producers, thus the market for grain is reduced by something like 75%.  An alternate pathway that might have released exports to the wider world was to ship the grain by rail via EU nations.

Well the Ukrainian government has just increased the cost of shipping by rail by maybe 65%, and that , on top of certain technical obstacles that completely eliminates the incentive to plant a crop. The farmer goes from a situation where if they were optimistic they might visualize making some money and they can justify planting a crop on that basis to a situation where they are definitely going to lose money if they plant a crop.

So that may mean that no crop was planted this year and that is a disaster not only for Ukraine next year but also for that part of the world, particularly north and east Africa, that depends upon food exported from the Ukraine.  And that means they have to switch the grain containers from one national rail system to  another at the border. There have been efforts to lower the cost of doing that, which was mainly all the bureaucratic barriers at the border, since the beginning of the war.

Unfortunately the Ukranian railway gauge is not the same as their friendly neighbours so container wagons cannot be transferred seamlessly. 

That means carriers have to switch the grain containers from one train to the other at the border. There have been efforts to lower the cost of doing that, which was mainly all the bureaucratic barriers at the border, since the beginning of the war. It used to take weeks and sometimes a month before grain container was switched to the other gauge, a process that because of EU bureaucracy can take weeks. Ukrainian exporters are reportedly trying to reduce that to days but the European Union being the authoritarian, bureaucratic nightmare it is, things are not likely to change any time soon.

 All this adds up to a picture that exposes the narrative of 'Brave Little Ukraine standing up to the bully Putin,' as pure propaganda. The conflict in Ukraine is bloody and brutal and despite reports that Russia is losing squillions of fighting men every day while the Azov brigade has only lost a handful of foreign mercenaries and a blind old dog is bollocks. There are significant casualties on both sides but figures quoted by either should be taken with a pinch of salt.

What should really concern us is that NATO and EU member states and the USA are continuing to supply advanced weapons to Ukraine, enabling the neo - Nazi nutters in Kiev to prolong and escalate the war
, while Ukrainian civilians are bearing the brunt of the suffering and deprivation that always goes with war.

America’s Energy Crisis: Subsidised Wind & Solar Main Reason For Record Power Prices

  by  

                                 

Failure’s an orphan, success has a thousand fathers, but subsidised wind and solar are central to the energy disaster playing out in America, Europe and Australia.

Faced with rocketing power prices and an angry proletariat, the political classes have amped up their deceptive rhetoric, with wild and fantastic claims that the only way to rein in runaway power costs is to add even more chaotically unreliable and heavily subsidised wind and solar power. A little like throwing gasoline on a raging fire.

Not renowned for his grip on reality, or relationship with the truth, America’s President, the hapless Joe Biden has taken the lead in the stakes for America’s annual Pinocchio awards, as Francis Menton explains below.

When President Biden talks, there may or may not be any connection between what he says and the real world. Yes, you need to give every politician some leeway, since most of what any politician says will fall in the general realm of political exaggeration or hyperbole. But even within the disreputable category of politicians, Biden can take the lack of connection with reality to a whole new level.

You may have your own favorite among Biden’s preposterous statements. For me, the very most preposterous is one that he has been making repeatedly for the past several months, namely that his energy plans, including expansion of wind and solar electricity generation together with fossil fuel suppression, will save American families the very specific amount of $500 per year each. This claim has popped up in multiple places and multiple formulations. One example came in the State of the Union speech back in March, where Biden said, “Let’s cut energy costs for families an average of $500 a year by combatting climate change.” ...

European Union Is Again Close To A Meltdown As Eurozone Economy Collapses

The European Union was in big trouble long before Britain voted to leave in 2016 (and finally left in 2021), the financial strain of a basketload of economic basket case nations relying on Germany's industrial powerhouse economy to support them was starting to fray the threads of unity that held the then 28 member - state together which the loonytoons green energy poicies and politically correct approach to immigration and other social issues imposed by the technocrats in Brussels were dividing nations internally as well as against each other. But somehow the Brussels elite and their loyal supporters in member state governments managed by a mixture of bullying and manipulation to hold thins together.

But they cannot continue business as usual for much longer it seems. The Russia -Ukraine conflict is taking a toll on the Euro-zone and it could result in finally pushing the Union into the abyss. Every problem emanating from Russia's invasion of Ukraine is amplified for the region which was already struggling economically and politically. Soaring energy prices and out-of-control cost of living increases combined with stagnate growth and a growing trade imbalance with China and India you have the recipe for disaster. And then there is the inevitable runaway inflation that is the inevitable result of the insane money - printing exercise formally known as the COVID pandemic response.

A report publishd by Reuters this month shows the Euro-zone year - on - year inflation rate surged to yet another record high in May to to 8.1% in May from 7.4% in April. Energy costs due to the sanctions imposed on Russia in retaliation for the incursion into Ukraine are no longer the only factor pushing up the figure. Excluding food and energy prices, inflation rose to 4.4% year-on-year from 3.9%. This pressures the European Central Bank to bump up interest rates further. Unfortunately with Germany and several other EU nations being forced to ration domestic fuel, while transport costs have led to problems with food distribution and empty shop shelves, such a move ought to be unthinkable. Europe's economic war with Russia has highlighted just how weak Europe is.

Should Ukraine conflict drag on, as it may with EU and NATO member states supplying the suicidal nutcases in Kiev with high tech military hardware thus enabling them to prolong the war, Russia could completely cut off gas to Europe. Currently it appears Russia intends to keep Europe from restocking its storage facilities, which will cause widespread hardship substantially increase Russia’s leverage in the winter months. In the past three months Russia has cut off gas supply to several European countries that refused to pay for gas in rubles and has also substantially reduced the flow through the Nord Stream. This has cut off supplies to France and reduced flows to Germany by some 60 percent.

With inflation at 4 times the ECB's 2% target, policymakers face the toxic mix of raising rates and a shrinking economy. Trapped between galloping inflation, and political instability due to economic chaos and hoping to tame inflation, ECB President Christine Lagarde is moving to raise rates. Some policymakers and economists doubt small moves will be enough, especially since underlying inflation is showing no signs of abating.

Due to supply chain problems in the wake of the pandemic, then as a result of Russia's war in Ukraine, prices have been soaring across Europe. This suggests the years of of ultra-low inflation are at an end. What many economists tried to blow off as a transitory blip prices has now become embedded in the economy. The fear is that once high energy prices filter through into the general economy, inflation will get entrenched and eventually perpetuate a price-wage spiral.

Data from the European Union's statistics agency, Eurostat shows the euro zone's trading account swung to a record deficit in January from a surplus a year earlier as the cost of imported energy increased. The euro-zone's trade deficit in goods, the difference between exports and imports, was 27.2 billion euros ($30.17 billion) in January, compared with a EUR10.7 billion surplus the same month a year earlier.

Euro-zone governments are already facing all these problems, the last thing they need is another refugee crisis on a par with the influx of illegal migrants in 2015. This time the invasion is caused by food insecurity across Africa the Middle East and South East Asia and the threat of an energy-scarce winter as 2022 comes to a close. The EU abandoned all structural reforms in 2014 when the ECB started its quantitative easing program (QE) and expanded the balance sheet to record levels. Considering the above, it is difficult to remain optimistic that The European Union is on the right track. Member nations are aware of this and are becoming more inclined to ignore Brussels imposed policies and go their own way.

The Federal Republic of New Normal Germany

 by C J Hopkins, OffGuardian, 24 June 2022

So, the government of New Normal Germany is contemplating forcing everyone to wear medical-looking masks in public from October to Easter on a permanent basis.

Seriously, the fanatical New Normal fascists currently in charge of Germany’s government — mostly the SPD and the Greens — are discussing revising the “Infection Protection Act” in order to grant themselves the authority to continue to rule the country by decree, as they have been doing since the Autumn of 2020, thus instituting a “permanent state of emergency” that overrides the German constitution, indefinitely.

Go ahead, read that paragraph again.

Take a break from the carnage in non-Nazi Ukrainethe show trials in the US congressmonkeypoxmaniaSudden Adult Death SyndromeSudden Bovine Death Syndromefamily-oriented drag queensnon-“vaccine”-related facial paralysis, and Biden falling off his bike, and reflect on what this possibly portends, the dominant country of the European Union dispensing with any semblance of democracy and transforming into a fascist biosecurity police state.

OK, let me try to be more precise, as I don’t want to be arrested for “spreading disinformation” or “delegitimizing the state.”

Germany is not dispensing with the semblance of democracy. No, the German constitution will remain in effect.

It’s just that the revised Infection Protection Act — like the “Enabling Act of 1933,” which granted the Nazi government the authority to issue any edicts it wanted under the guise of “remedying the distress of the people” — will grant the New Normal German government the authority to continue to supersede the constitution and issue whatever edicts it wants under the guise of “protecting the public health”…for example, forcing the German masses to display their conformity to the new official ideology by wearing medical-looking masks on their faces for six or seven months of every year.  

In addition to a ritualized mass-demonstration of mindlessly fascist ideological conformity (a standard feature of all totalitarian systems), this annual October-to-Easter mask-mandate, by simulating the new paranoid “reality” in which humanity is under constant attack by deadly viruses and other “public health threats,” will cement the New Normal ideology into place. ...

The Green Party in Germany is currently putting forward as a policy that up to 140 million “climate refugees” should be allowed to migrate to the west and given citizenship.

News Summary - 21 June 2022

 

German Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister Robert Habeck  said Sunday that the country will limit the use of natural gas for electricity production amid concerns about possible shortages caused by a cut in supplies from Russia.

As a member of the environmentalist Green Party, Habeck pushed through legislation in April to raise Germany’s energy target to 80% renewables. He is also an opponent of nuclear energy.

Habeck said that Germany will try to compensate for the move by increasing the burning of coal, a more polluting fossil fuel.

 “That’s bitter, but it’s simply necessary in this situation to lower gas usage,”

The decision comes just days after Russian gas company Gazprom announced that it was sharply reducing supplies through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline for technical reasons, but which Habeck said appeared to be politically motivated.

Grooming Gang Leader Served as a Council Welfare Rights Officer While Raping Young Girls

from Breitbart Europe, 21 June 2022

gang
5:42

The head of an infamous Pakistani child sex grooming gang has been revealed to have been serving as a welfare rights officer for the local government council, a major child sex abuse report has revealed.

Shabir Ahmed, who led the Muslim Rochdale child rape gang, has been identified as “Offender A” by Sky News in a child sexual exploitation in Oldham report this month, which showed that while he was abusing children, he was employed by the local Labour-run council. Despite the Greater Manchester Police force being aware of allegations against Ahmed and his position as a welfare officer for the council, the police force failed to notify the council.

The convicted paedophile, who was jailed for 22 years for preying on vulnerable girls in the Northern English city of Rochdale, and for raping a young Asian girl 30 times for over a decade, was also revealed to have been dispatched by the council to the Oldham Pakistani Community Centre, where he would have had access to young children.

The report stated that if police had informed his employers of the rape allegations “it may have potentially avoided the tragic abuse of other children.”

Though the report claimed to have found no evidence of a coverup, it said that “some children had been failed by the agencies that were meant to protect them because child protection procedures had not been properly followed.”

Preprint research report links rare brain disease to COVID-19 vaccines220621

                          Preprint research report links rare brain disease to COVID-19 vaccines

French and Swiss neurologists and virologists released a preprint research report in May about a rare brain disease with a high mortality rate that emerged after Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations. However, the original report was recently retracted and resubmitted by the authors.

Before it was deleted, however, the researcher reported a 72-year-old woman developing Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease 14 days after her second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Her symptoms persisted until the 10th week before fatal neurodegeneration occurred.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease symptoms can be similar to those of other dementia-like brain disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

The report analyzed 26 cases of a prion diseases after COVID-19 vaccination with Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines. And it was found that there had been a serious deterioration from the time of vaccination to the onset of the disease, with instances of death within three to four months.

This is very surprising because the progression of prion diseases (rare, fatal brain diseases that usually affect humans and animals alike) in the past was generally slow and long-lasting, and rarely ever developed into a severe disease within a few months. This shows that the progression of the disease is a lot different from conventional prion diseases in the past.

Gizmodo has published a series of leaked Facebook documents that it calls “the Facebook Papers”. They reveal that some Facebook employees are unhappy with the tech giant for not censoring “climate change denial”. Reclaim the Net has more.

In late 2021, one document reportedly shows, there were employees who could not understand why Facebook was not defending “the science of the warming planet” with more strict rules, and were critical of their employer for the inefficiency of the rules that did exist.

The documents, that appear to be logs from internal message boards, show one employee finding a “bug” in the censorship machine, despite the fact a part of Facebook’s policies is to “gently nudge” users toward “more authoritative” sources – a condescending way of saying that users should be prevented from seeing content they want, and instead be corralled and directed toward that often arbitrarily picked by the tech giant.

The “bug” consisted in search returning results that did not “nudge users” or employ other forms of manipulation. For example, when searching “climate change,” Facebook at that time simply returned what was the most viewed content on the subject, and it happened to be a video with over 6.5 million views, titled, “Climate Change Panic Is Not Based on Facts!”

Ukraine Bans Main Opposition Party, Seizes All Its Assets

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

Ukrainian authorities have banned the country’s main opposition party and seized all its assets, once again undermining the narrative that President Zelensky is presiding over a beacon of democracy.

The country’s Ministry of Justice announced the move via Facebook, revealing that the Opposition Platform — For Life had been shut down and its assets, money and property transferred to the state.

The party had previously had its operations suspended in March after it was accused of being complicit with Russia and being “anti-Ukrainian.”

The ban means that Zelensky’s main political opposition has been eliminated. The OPPL was the second largest party in the country and its popularity surpassed that of Zelensky’s Servant of the People party last year.

Its leader Viktor Medvedchuk, who claims he is merely looking out for the interests of the Ukrainian people by seeking better relations with Russia, was placed under house arrest last month.

The announcement said the party was suspected of acting to “undermine the sovereignty” of Ukraine, with authorities have already banned 10 other political opposition parties for the same reason.

Last month, President Zelensky signed a bill into law that gave the green light to ban any party that challenged the government’s policy on the Russian invasion, empowering courts to seize assets without the right to appeal.

While opposition parties are being obliterated, Ukrainians who engage in dissent are also being rounded up and arrested by armed men from the Ukraine Security Service.

As we previously highlighted, Ukraine is also attempting to extradite and imprison citizens who live in other European countries if they criticize Zelensky.

Climate Common Sense At Last? The UK Is Prioritizing Energy Security Over Net Zero Promises

 

After all Boris Johnson's posturing and blustering about his country becoming the world leader in the race to 'Ney Zero', the economically and socially destructive policy that would trash national economies and drive millions into poverty for the sake of winning bragging rights in the climate change scaremongers' club, the U.K. government appears to be making a U turn on its climate promises. Recent developments in energy policy the show significant support for continuing to generate electricity in gas  fired power stations, and opening up several new fossil fuel projects as well as recommissioning oil and gas rigs in the North Sea.. 

Despite having pumped millions into 'sustainable' energy generation technologies (wind and solar,) due to changing conditions in the global economy largely as a result of the Russia / Ukraine war and the economic sanctions imposed on Russia as a punitive measure, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been forced to back an increase in North Sea oil and gas production while the |Department of Energy is even in discussions about extending coal plant operations, having previously pledged that use of coal  in electricity production would end by 2024. 

After the COP26 climate conference last November, president of the summit Alok Sharma, formerly Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, said the U.K. would press governments on their carbon reductiontion promises, in order to hit the goal of limiting global heating to 1.5C. The U.K. took a leading role in the summit, which was held in Glasgow, and will maintain its presidency until COP27 in Egypt later this year. 

It should be pointed out that despite the enormous costs involved in reducing carbon Dioxide emissions, there is no reliable scientific evidence that doing so would half rising temperatures or that global mean temperatures will in fact rise by the predicted amounts. So far ALL the doomsday predictions of the matematical modellers who pass themselves off as 'climate Scientists' have been disastrously wrong. But that point had been made and backed up with evidence in this blog many times before.

As well as setting itself impossible and nonsensical targets for net-zero carbon emissions the U.K. government introduced a target to cut emissions by 78 percent by 2035 and for all of the UK's electricity to come from clean sources by 2035. This idiotic promised to The Green Blob was tied to a plan to increase the generating capacity of offshore wind, but as usual the sciencetits (sic) and politicians overlooked the fact that not only can wind turbines not generate when wind force is too low, they also have to be switched off when the wind strength is too high. So while the government boasts that UK has established itself as a world leader in offshore wind production, the fact that those offshore wind farms cannot generate for around 35% of the time is hidden away on the small print.

With renewables already producing around 20 percent of the country’s electricity but no way of storing it to meet peak demand when the wind is not blowing or is blowing too hard how do they plan to guarantee the steady current required by what the electricity industry calls baseload? T

The government has also introduced wide-spreading decarbonization aims for housing, transport, flights and shipping, food, and industry. But these are just more fairy tale stuff.

Government have  accused ministers of going against their own policies and pledges already this year and of abandoning its net-zero targets, by ingback oil and gas projects in response to the energy crisis caused partly by the Russia / Ukraine situation and partly by the faiure of 'sustainables' to live up to the promises of scientists. 

 In April, the U.K. launched an energy security strategy, which aims for long-term independence from foreign energy sources such as Russia and Saudi Arabia (an unreliable ally at best,) and linked energy security to the decarbonization of the U.K.’s power supply. The strategy then contradicts itself by also identifying oil and gas as key to the meeeting energy needs for the foreseeable future, with plans to boost production in the North Sea, stating “net-zero is a smooth transition, not an immediate extinction, for oil and gas”.

North Sea oil and gas is more reliable option for energy security than importing energy and in the current climate is necessary to meet domestic needs until a new generation of nuclear power stations comes online but the government has not made any moves on nuclear as yet. It may of course be the case that the politicians are reluctant to admit their plan to power a modern nation with the medieval technology of windmills has failed dismally. However, the  United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) gave a “now or never” warning in April, suggesting that new fossil fuel exploration would jeopardize the Paris agreement target of limiting global heating to 1.5C. It is not clear who these bureaucratic wankers think they are fooling, but with China and India opening new coal fired power plants at an accelerating rate the Paris agreement is defunct anyway.

Responding to concerns about rising energy prices, which have already sent many into fuel poverty, Boris Johnson says that North Sea oil will be vital in tackling the cost of living, encouraging companies to increase their investments in the energy source.

In May, Johnson stated, “To tackle inflation in the medium-term, you’ve got to deal with supply-side issues.”

Adding, “So we need the energy companies to be putting some more into hydrocarbons, but we also need the whole country to be investing in more low-carbon energy.”

This month, it was revealed that the U.K. government was negotiating with Oil companies about increasing oil and gas production in in the North Sea in response to shortages and spiralling prices. This follows news that regulators approved the Shell Jackdaw natural gas field in the North Sea, having rejected it previously due to environmental concerns. 

Shell’s CEO Ben van Beurden said that the company will commence the Jackdaw project “as well as other similar ones... in fact, we have an interest in six of the UK’s 12 planned exploration wells,”. This is part of the company’s aim to increase its oil and gas market share from 10 percent to 15 percent over the next eight years. Shell is expected to invest $31 billion in U.K. energy before 2030, 75 percent of which will go to cleaner energy sources.

In addition, the government is likely to make a deal with a coal-fired facility in Nottinghamshire to maintain operations for longer than scheduled to ensure the U.K.’s energy security. Negotiations are taking place with French energy company EDF to delay the plant’s closure from October this year to next March. 

But the opposition and the public are taking notice of these recent changes in the government’s approach to energy.

Environmentalist groups and the far left Liberal Democrat party criticized the government this month for approving gas drilling in Surrey Hills, in the South of England, despite environmental risks. The Green loonies and the Lib Dumbs would rather us sit shivering in the dark through future winters than admit the truth, that climate change is not an existential threat and all the doom laden warnings are based not on reality but on evidence from mathematical models of the climate. Environmentalist campaigners suggested that the government has an “obsession” with finding new fossil fuel developments. Greenpeace UK policy director Doug Parr said “with this decision the government is completely undermining local democracy, the planning laws that are supposed to protect our designated landscapes and the climate crisis in one fell swoop.”

I wonder if this self - righteous idiot and his unwashed cronies understand that should we  shut down all fossil fuel powered operations immediately as the tree - huggers are demanding, not a single hospital in Britain could operate, our cities would grind to a halt, and there would be no food in the shops.

It is good to see that for once, instead of pandering to extremists the government is doing the right thing in turning its back on loonytoons climate pledges and policies, in the face of energy shortages and rising prices, we are turning back to oil, gas and even coal, in a bid to ensure the country’s energy security. Next step Boris, get those nukes built.
