"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"

No Wind, No Sun, No Power
"Windmills and solar panels sound wonderful. Except that the UK wind isn’t blowing and the German sun isn’t shining. .......A few days ago I mentioned three reasons why wind power is more difficult and complicated than people discussing it over a glass of wine and a marvelous meal tend to think it is. Andrew Montford, on his BishopHill blog, has since posted a piece titled The Great Still. He reports that, in recent days, so little wind has been blowing in the UK that all its windmills combined are generating about “a tenth of one percent of demand.” Much of the rest of Europe finds itself in a similar situation. The wind just isn’t blowing. In other words, it doesn’t matter how many millions a country spends installing thousands of turbines. If the wind doesn’t blow, there’s no power. If the UK didn’t have access to “dirty” fossil fuels as backup, hospital patients dependent on electronic equipment would be perishing right now."
