Nice column on the on Politics and energy policy

Column: Politics and sound economic decisions don’t mix, as our energy policy shows

Steven O’Hanlon, well worth reading

My tuppence worth is…..

Allow me to point out again that ” Germany’s CO2 emissions have been increasing, electricity prices have skyrocketed, the green jobs bubble has popped, and tens of thousands of jobs have disappeared. Worse: tens of billions are being redistributed from the poor to the rich.

Other countries around the world have noticed and are thus having serious second thoughts about industrializing their landscapes with green energy systems like wind, solar and biogas. Germany has proven that green energy does not work well after all.”

We have no need to conform to these nonsensical green targets and as the Spanish experience shows the cost of each green job is 2.1 real ones.
None of the equipment used in the green energy scam is made in Ireland and any investment in the future needs to be directed at creating jobs on the home front starting with more emphasis on teaching Science, real Science not climastrology, and Engineering to our young people. We can’t win on cost so we need to concentrate on quality.

  1. The constant misinformation regarding Nuclear Power is a feature of Irish mejja and the lesson of Chernobyl , which is not to buy a Soviet era reactor and further not to play silly bruggers with it has escaped them. The fact that Fukushima was caused by a tsunami has been sidelined to.
