"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 ten 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"

£20m countryside solar farm 'cack-handed and opportunistic'
" Mr Rhys Jones said that the scheme, which would be Britain's largest solar farm and power between 4,500 and 5,400 homes, was part of a "mad series" of schemes by the Government and accused ministers of "riding roughshod" over localism. Plans for the 94-acre site in Suffolk have been submitted to Babergh District Council and are under discussion by its planning committee. Hive Energy, the company behind the scheme, said it would help meet the Government's targets on renewable energy and produce the equivalent power of 12 wind farms. But Mr Rhys Jones, who lives two miles away from the proposed site in Tattingstone, in Suffolk, said: "It could never be called part of a greener future for the countryside. "It is part of a mad series of schemes introduced by a Government struggling with an energy policy. The Government is riding roughshod over localism. "Filling an area the size of 50 football pitches - which is open to view on three sides from public rights of way - with 72,000 three-metre high plastic panels simply cannot be a sensible way to use our best-quality agricultural land in a highly-attractive landscape. "The proposals are cack-handed and opportunistic - the area should not be the developer's first choice to install the solar farm. "This is not a nimby reaction. The area is heavily used for leisure and recreation and very close to Alton Water. "There are brownfield sites five miles away that would be better suited. I am totally opposed to it. I hope the council sees sense and opposes it."
