Bullingdon Club fuel policy designed for fattening aristocrats

Our energy policy is a sorry mess. Regulations are forcing the closure of old coal power plants and the Government is insisting that they are replaced in large part with renewable energy, which comes at a ruinous cost. Liberum Capital estimates that over £160 billion needs to be invested over the rest of this decade to meet the targets and then another £215 billion in the next decade.
Liberum estimate that will increase total power costs by 29 per cent by 2020 and then 100 per cent by 2030. If gas prices rise at a similar rate too – and given they are substitutes any sharp divergence in gas and electricity prices would make a mockery of the decarbonisation targets – then an average family will be paying the best part of £2,000 by the end of this decade. The theory that they will cover those costs by drastically improving the energy efficiency of their homes seems more and more ridiculous as the Green Deal unravels before our eyes.

TAP – Coal can be burned with half the CO2 output of natural gas, if carbon is captured at the moment of combustion.  If the carbon captured is then mixed with hydrogen to create methanol, the fuel manufactured is overall cheaper than gas and all other competitor fuels.  That’s no doubt why the government isn’t capturing carbon from coal in the most efficient manner, and is throwing away the carbon to no advantage.    Otherwise they would be driving down the cost of both electricity and fuel for vehicles.  Can’t let the plebs have a load of that, obviously.  What would the Bullingdon Club do if the peanants got rich.

    Adopted Boy Sexually Abused By Gay Fathers

    So disappointing, is this an eye opener?

    should we learn from this sad young six year olds child’s abused experience ?

    can the damage ever be undone?

    how can we save our children from this fate?

    is this an example of “give them enough rope” & they will ….?

    Adopted Boy Sexually Abused By Gay Fathers

    Police in Australia have described the case of a six-year-old boy who was sexually abused by his adoptive gay fathers and other people as “depraved”.

    The men, who obtained the baby from a Russian surrogate in 2005, had presented themselves as loving fathers before their arrests in California last year.

    Authorities in Australia and the US worked together to bring the men to justice after it emerged that the child had been offered to others for sexual exploitation from a very young age.

    Last week one of the men, an American, was jailed in the US for 40 years while the other, who is from New Zealand, is still to be sentenced.

    “None of these cases are very good,” Queensland Detective Inspector Jon Rouse, who heads the task force which investigates online child exploitation and abuse, told the AFP news agency.

    “What’s pretty sad about this one is the way this child came into their lives. It’s just really a tragedy. It’s extremely depraved.”

    WASHINGTON — In more than a dozen classified rulings, the nation’s surveillance court has created a secret body of law giving the National Security Agency the power to amass vast collections of data on Americans while pursuing not only terrorism suspects, but also people possibly involved in nuclear proliferation, espionage and cyberattacks, officials say.
