"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"

Huhne's exit gives Cameron the chance to end the scourge of wind turbines. He won't be forgiven if he doesn't take it
"With remarkably prescient timing, more than 100 Tory MPs have written to the Prime Minister demanding that the £400 million-a-year subsidies paid to the onshore wind turbine industry should be ‘dramatically cut’. The MPs warn that it is unwise to force consumers to pay such subsidies for a form of energy production that they claim is ‘inefficient and intermittent’. They also worry that the Government’s new planning policy will diminish the chances of local people defeating unpopular onshore wind farm proposals through the planning system.
Their timing is striking because they sent their protest to the Prime Minister last week, only five days before Chris Huhne resigned as Energy and Climate Change Secretary in order to fight the criminal charge laid against him of perverting the course of justice. Whether or not this was pure coincidence or a shrewd piece of strategic anticipation by these MPs, their initiative was singularly well-timed to take advantage of the precipitate departure of the Cabinet’s principal green zealot. For under Mr Huhne’s stewardship, Britain has been saddled with the most fanatical deep green energy policy in the world. .....Already the impact on British industry and jobs has been disastrous, adding a green ‘stealth tax’ of some 20 per cent and rising. And some companies are relocating outside Britain as a result.
With the country on the brink of a double-dip recession, such idiocy is beyond belief."
