"Carbon (Dioxide) trading is now the fastest growing commodities market on earth.....And here’s the great thing about it. Unlike traditional commodities markets, which will eventually involve delivery to someone in physical form, the carbon (dioxide) market is based on lack of delivery of an invisible substance to no-one. Since the market revolves around creating carbon (dioxide) credits, or finding carbon (dioxide) reduction projects whose benefits can then be sold to those with a surplus of emissions, it is entirely intangible."

This blog has been tracking the 'Global Warming Scam' for over five years now. There are a very large number of articles being published in blogs and more in the MSM who are waking up to the fact the public refuse to be conned any more and are objecting to the 'green madness' of governments and the artificially high price of energy. This blog will now be concentrating on the major stories as we move to the pragmatic view of 'not if, but when' and how the situation is managed back to reality. To quote Professor Lindzen, "a lot of people are going to look pretty silly"

Philip dismisses wind farms as 'a useless disgrace' and says people who back them believe in a 'fairy tale'
"It was disclosed last year that electricity customers are paying an average of £90 a year to subsidise wind farms along with other forms of renewable energy and energy efficiency schemes as part of a Government scheme to meet carbon (dioxide)-reduction targets.
Mr Wilmar said one of the main reasons the Duke thought onshore wind farms to be ‘a very bad idea’ was their reliance on such subsidies.The financial incentives being offered to green energy developers have led landowners – including the Duke of Gloucester, the Queen’s cousin – to look to build wind farms on their estates.Prince Philip said he would never consider allowing his land to be used for turbines and complained about their impact on the countryside. Mr Wilmar said: ‘He said he thought that they’re not nice at all for the landscape.’
The Duke’s comments echo the views of his son Prince Charles, who has refused to have any built on his Duchy of Cornwall land.However, while they are opposed to onshore wind farms, the Royal Family stands to earn millions of pounds from those placed offshore."
