Out Of Touch Elites Are Destroying Civilised Society Society With Net Zero Obsession And No Plan B

Picture: Daily Sceptic

Andrew Orlowski has written an excellent piece in the Telegraph lambasting the Net Zero ideologues running the UK, who have foisted on a public unable to opt out, a mass of unrealistic, contradictory policies around the transition to 'clean, renewable energy and 'Net Zero' CO2 emissions, that will destroy European economies while reducing emissions locally by moving dirty industry to China, India, South East Asia and Africa. Here’s an excerpt.

Take climate change targets. How good it must have felt for politicians to set those lofty goals, knowing that someone else must deal with the cost and the implementation? But now the bills are now arriving, and they’re bringing a world of hurt.

To sum up: Western policy elites have embarked on the electrification of society, replacing hydrocarbons in housing and transport, but without the technology to replace it well.

The laptop elites of Davos who back this transition are not technologically savvy people – they’re fundamentally frivolous people, anecdotalists who yawned their way through their science GCSEs. A squiggle on the back of an envelope will impress them.

They must be astonished how easy the “energy transition” project has been so far, with Maoist cadres of activist investors ensuring the most valuable stuff our economy depends on is left in the ground.

Electrification is a profound change, however, and in practice, means two things. The public is being required to surrender a superior product for an inferior one. And secondly, the infrastructure to transition to these inferior products cheaply and reliably does not exist.

To make an additional rod for our backs, Governments have decreed that a proportion of the replacement energy for hydrocarbons must come from methods that we wisely abandoned in the Middle Ages: the sun and the wind.

Even if we could acquire superior equivalents to a combination gas boiler or a 38-tonne diesel truck, in reality they’d go unused. The capacity required to generate the required level of supply, even expensively, will be absent for a very long time.

So it’s fairly safe to predict that Net Zero will fail – those targets will be missed. But for now, the policy throws up massive contradictions, while resolving them is nobody’s department.

For example, ministers say we need a multiple of the electricity generation capacity we have today. The National Grid says we’ll all have to get by with a lot less. In fact, so many contradictory measures have been passed, that “it is now beyond any minister or civil servant to name them all, let alone understand how they interact with each other,” Professor Dieter Helm warns in his latest bulletin on the U.K. energy industry, published this month.

“The resulting complexity is the prime route to enabling lobbying by vested interests, and the consequent capture of each of the technology-specific interventions,” Helm adds.

One needs only look at the electricity generation statistics published 24 hours a day, every day on to understand that we are saved from power cuts almost every day by burning natural gas and importing electricity via undersea cabled from France, Netherlands, Belgium and Norway. Similarly our transport systems are utterly dependent upon oil. Our society without these fuels is about as likely as a hospital without drugs and medicines.

The application of Net Zero Targets, just like Trans Ideology it's not based on a shred of fact , but these pseudo - scientific   quasi - religions are readily swallowed up by all our institutions, politicians and big business due to the influence of globalist groups like tThe World Economic Forum (WEF), The Bilderberg Group and the semi official World Health Organisation (WHO) which seems to be leading the push to create an unelected, authoritarian global government. The playbook comes straight out of the philosophy of Cultural Marxism, a world domination plan crated by The Frankfurt School in he 1920s. It will fail spectacularly of course, but not before it has wreaked political havoc, trashed national economies, and destroyed the lives of millions. The term 'bunch of little Hitlers' is accurate and not applied to politicians often enough. 

It's mostly young people that believe in global warming with utter certainty. And they've been indoctrinated with this propaganda in school since they were very young. They were taught this before they had developed any critical thinking skills so questioning the nonsense was impossible for them. So almost all of them believe it, impending climate catastrophe due to use of 'fossil fuels' is one of the dogmas on which their lives are founded.

And you are not going to be able to change those beliefs in spite of the fact that the science is NOT settled and if we did deeply enough we will always find links between promoters of the climate change scare and people or organisations who stand to gain either financially or politically by appearing to support this narrative instead of challenging it..

This blog has for the eighteen years of its existence doubted the global warming narrative and all the scaremongering propaganda warning of an immediate looming climatic catastrophe and have on numerous occasions reported on publication by independent researchers of data proving the threat of climate disaster is vastly overstated and the effect of CO2 on climate is minim, we have to take the climate change lobby and extremist groups like Just Stop Oil and the Exstinktion Rebellion crusties seriously. There are three reasons for that: 

First the great majority of the people believe there is a problem. And that makes it a real issue, even if it there is no verifiable scientific evidence supporting the case of the alarmists.. 

Second, looking at things from an objective scientific perspective, there is a good chance there really is a problem. I have lots of criticism for the pseudoscientific way in which the universities think about these things, but that does not prove there isn't a problem, we Boggart Bloggers do not believe it is Carbon Dioxide or even man made, but there has to be free and open debate, with the views of groups outside the academic community allowed to be heard in order to understand the nature and causes of environmental challenges.

And third, fossils fuel resources are being depleted faster than the earth produces them, so this is a problem that has to be solved anyway. 


Climate Scaremongers Have Taken Over Where COVID Scaremongers Left Off
Boggart Blog can announce that the winners of our coveted Scaremongering Bollocks of The Month award goes this month to BBC News. Not only did the BBC report in one of their regular climate catastrophe scare stories that river levels across the UK have been at record lows, they broadcast that news story on the same day as The London Weather Centre announced that March 2023 was set to be the wettest March since records began.

Germany Forcing Farmers To Use LESS Fertilizer To Satisfy EU’s Green Agenda
The German government, already reeling from the public backlash against rising fuel prices, the shortage of gas since supplies from Russia were cut off, and the biggest economic crisis in the EU, has now jumped on another 'woke' bandwagon. The socialist led ruling coalition has banned farmers in one of its federal states from properly fertilizing land in compliance with the latest lunacy of the EU's green agenda ...

The Truth About Coal And The Lies Of The Elite
So much for all the COP 26 banter late last year. Let me remind you. The elites all flew in on their private jets and promptly told us we’re all (royal we) getting off fossil fuels and killing coal.So how’s that turning out? The usage of coal is now at record highs:

Net Zero Will Lead To The End Of Modern Civilisation, Says Top Scientist
In a recently published science paper, Dr. Wallace Manheimer said Net Zero would be the end of modern civilisation. Writing about wind and solar power he argued it would be especially tragic “when not only will this new infrastructure fail, but will cost trillions, trash large portions of the environment, and be entirely unnecessary”.

Climate Scientists' Mathematical Models Of Reality Wrong Again…New Study Shows Jet Stream Strengthening, Not Weakening
recent research  by Samantha Hallam et al published in the journal Climate Dynamics looks at the seasonal variations over decades in Northern Hemisphere jet stream latitude and speed over land for the period 1871–2011. The authors report that they found no evidence of weakening of the sort climate alarmists have been warning about for the past three decades.

UK Households Are Paying Wind Turbine Owners To Not Generate Electricity
On another near windless day here in the United Kingdom, Boggart Blog came across a very interesting piece if news. According to figures published by the business and management consultancy LCP, british taxpayers have been paying operators of wind turbines farms for the time their windmills were NOT generating electricity increased to record levels last year ...

Net Zero Is A Dangerous Fantasy, But Scientists Believe In Fairies It Seems
With oil and gas prices rocketing and the highly propted sustainable energy sources performing way befow expectations the energy crisis currently gripping Europe (with worse to come as food shortages start to bite, polticians still seem more intent on pandering to the green lobby and chasing the dream of a fossil fuel free world rather securing the energy and food supplies needed by the people they serve.

New UN Report on Climate Change – Nothing New, Nothing True
The latest United Nations (“UN”) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (“IPCC”) report, published this week, once again, in scaremongering tone and the language of the panic stricken, claims that the planet is in peril (we are facing climate disaster, the clock is at one minute to midnight, we must take urgent action to destroy civilisation if we are to save the planet, the usual over - dramatised guff designed to spread fear and panic,) basically the same claim as they have been making at least twice a month for the past 20 years.

We need energy security – not Net Zero
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has prompted a major rethink in the West. We have suddenly found ourselves vulnerable not just to rising prices in oil and gas, but also to inflation in other commodities – such as food and fertiliser. Of all these problems, the security of our energy supply has most exercised minds.

Net Zero Gone With The Wind - Boris Johnson Plans Seven New Nuclear Plants And Shelves Wind Expansion
Reports in mainstream media suggest Boris Johnson has done a U turn on his recently announced massive expansion of wind powered generating capacity. Sources in Westminster claim Boris has shelved his masterplan for a giant, floating wind farm in The North Sea and the government will reconsider plans to double or even treble the number of wind turbines in the countryside and approve plans for up to seven new nuclear reactors instead.

We Told You So - Government-funded Report Confirms World’s Largest offshore Wind Farm is UnprofitableA report commissioned by the Norwegian government has contradicted Boris Johnson’s recent claim that offshore wind costs have fallen by 70% in a decade. The report also blows a huge hole in Johnson's grandiose pledges to the COP26 conference that offshore wind power would propel Britain to its net - zero target for Carbon Dioxide emissions well before 2050, the target set by the climate conference for achieving that target.

Climate: The Science, The Lies, The Malfeasance and The Deep State
Climate change hoax COLLAPSES as new science finds human activity has virtually zero impact on global temperatures We have previously highlighted this report from Finland which exposes the great flaw in "the science" of global warming. The link at the end of this extract takes you to a much more complete account of the research project which, not for the first time debunks the fake science on which the politically - motivate climate change scare.

Proof That The Alarmist Claptrap You Are Hearing And Seeing At COP26 Climate Conference Is A Load Of Bollocks
The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places, the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions in the Arctic zone. Expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm ... Continue reading >>>

Green dreams of Heat Pumps Continue reading >>>
When Boris Johnson revealed the UK Government plans for achieving 'net zero' carbon emissions by 2050 it emerged the much teased clean, green replacement for gas boilers as our main source of domestic heating is to be heat pumps. The Daily Stirrer counters the pseudo-scientific bollocks and reveals this 'new technology has been around for a hundred years.

Governments' obsession with climate pseudoscience over economically and social viable solutions is leading to disaster
The government's current obsession with pursuing the target of net zero carbon emissions in order to claim the UK leads the world in green wankery is more to do with virtue signalling that governing, but with the complicity of mainstream media, particularly The BBC, climate scaremongering is providing a convenient diversion from this governments abject failure to address and of the very real economic and social problems facing us.

We need a referendum on net zero to save Britain from the green blob

from The Daily Telegraph
As with membership of the EU, the political elite is imposing a revolution on the public without consent. Does the blob never learn? Voters don’t like being treated like naughty children

Green Dreams Menu
It may be driven by virtue signalling or self hatred but the urge to destroy civilisation in order to save the planet and the ideological agenda that drive the gree movement are too far removed from the realities of life to ever achieve their aims.
