As mainstream media heaps praise on the delegates to the COP 26 climate conference because they have managed to agree to save the planet by repeating the same meaningless pledges and setting the same impossible targets as every previous climate conference in the past 20 years has, Boggart Blog brings you a message from a former colleague in Denmark, who tells us of the true condequences of 'gree' policy making in Europe's greenest nation. We have not edited it or corrected grammar for the sake of authenticity.
A Danish man's reply to media praise of COP26 Party For Billionaires.
My name is Christer Karlsson and I live in Denmark which has done what COP 26 delegate say and is a World Leader in renewables and we pay the highest prices for electricity and for warming our homes in Europa.
The renewables are heavily subsidised and the windmills are guaranteed a minimum price for the electricity of at least 25 p Kr/kilowatt otherwise they would not be profitable.
The wind does not blow all the time so we have wood pellet power plants, not using coal but wood that makes the same amount of Co2 but destroys matured forest in north and South America and requires twice the amount of shipping space as coal does. We use those power plants a lot since only 12% of our consumer used energy comes from renewables and the rest comes from pre-fossil wood pellets.
When the wind blows a lot it’s usually night and nobody needs the electricity and we actually have to pay the Germans to get rid of it. You read that right “We pay the Germans to take our surplus electricity”
To hear COP 26 delagates blabber about denialists, please point to the climate catastrophe….no sea level rises to see in Denmark which is mostly lowland or anywhere even after 40 years of “settled science” predicting flooding and disappearing south sea island groups. Has not happened.
Melting Greenland …not happening, it’s growing since 2016 and the Arctic is still there ice being fine and no North West passage open and no shipping up there even though climate science say arctic will be ice free by 2020 (or is it 2010?).
Antarctic just had the COLDEST winter ever, ever recorded a COLD WORLD RECORD in continental size. We have cold winters and lots of snow and frost, which is why we are begging the Russians for more gas, so we don’t freeze to death.
Global warming is the biggest hoax ever undertaken. COP 26 delegated and Froken Thnberg please point to the problems the warming has brought upon us?
Last year the Finnish Meteorological institute recorded extreme levels of snow in the northern hemisphere. It should be gone by now if “settled science” was not bogus propaganda on a lower level than the communists in the Soviet Union.
Please explain how these cheap renewables would supply us energy when the wind does not blow and the sun not shining?
Energy poverty is coming to a neighbourhood near you if the fanatics like Johnson and Macron get their will.
The reason gas and oil is exploding in price is the failure of renewables and subsidy payments needed to make said renewables seem cheap. Create a shortage so the prices skyrockets and COP 26 tell the idiots if we just had enough renewables that even pays for themselves are not even free but for profit and will make you and your children rich. But the rest of us, if we are lucky and maybe do not die of cold, we can eat bugs and not beef in the future to make smaller carbon footprint.
War is peace. Slavery is freedom and journalists have gone extinct and WEF propagandist has taken over the media
