Taxing the sunshine – we told you so.

November 13, 2013

Rememver all that bolocks about how electricity and gas were killing the planet and we all had to have solar panels on our heads and little wind turbines up our arses to harness natural energy? We told you it was all shite didn’t we.

We told you it was an excuse to slap massive taxes on energy and once enough people got their solar panels and windmills they’d tax those as well.

Spain was one of the first nations to kick fossil fuels into touch and go sustainable. Now read on:

“The latest nail in the coffin for Spain’s solar energy producers is an Energy Law amendment which allows inspectors to enter private properties without a court order. It’s a move lawyers believe could set a worrying precedent.

As if Spaniards had not already been dissuaded by the potential €60 million fines they face for illegally generating their own solar power, they now have to look forward to a knock on the door from the ‘solar police’.

A change to the ruling Popular Party’s (PP) Energy Law allows inspectors to “raid” properties they are suspicious of, armed only with administrative authorization.

If the suspect denies entry, Spain’s Industry Department will then ask for a court order that guarantees inspectors access to the property alongside Spanish national police.Officers will be able to seize all documents related to to energy consumption and seal off entry to the property.

Lawyers consulted by Spain’s VozPopuli online newspaper raised serious doubts about whether the move was constitutional. They also said it set a worrying precedent by obliging citizens to let inspectors enter a private residence. All this means generating your own solar energy without paying for the privilege is a risky business now in Spain.

Whereas Spain once flung money at companies who set up solar power programmes in the country, it now plans to slap a fee on people who create their energy for personal consumption.

As the Wall Street Journal put it, Spain is punishing “a small but growing segment of the middle class” who have installed solar panels to generate their own electricity.”

‘ang on? Wasn’t the nick in TV cop show The Bill called Sun Hill? Seems like we might have had the solar police before Spain.

Comical Ali Now Working For The New World Order

November 10, 2013

Remember Comical Ali, the Iraqi Minister of Information under Saddam Hussein whose wild statements about the great victories being won by the Iraqi armed forces as they repelled the invading infidels of the FUKUS axis?

A typical statement from him would go something like “Close to Baghdad airport the Iraqi Republican Guards, armed with catapults, pea shooters and long poles with nails through the end have repelled an attack by enemy tanks. hundreds of American and British tanks have been destroyed and their soldiers are in retreat. I have seen this with my own eyes.”

Among his other gems were:

“There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!”

“They’re not even within 100 miles of Baghdad. They hold no place in Iraq.”

“We have destroyed 2 tanks, fighter planes, 2 helicopters and their shovels. We have driven them back.”

Yeah, you remember him now.

Well he’s back and working as a propaganda officer for The New World Order. The NWO (or Illuminati if you like) having created an energy crisis by selling the stupid politicians and their even stupider scientific advisers the notion that wind turbines can generate electricity when the wind does not blow and that solar panels will work at night, are now trying to shaft us with a new generation of nuclear power stations that will generate all the electricity we need at twice the current cost.

Now don’t get me wrong, I have always said we need nuclear power. Trouble is, just when the NWO bankers though they had done enough to jack up the price so much we would all be enslaved by the debt we accumulated by keeping warm, Fukushima came along and reminded us that while nuclear power is carbon dioxide free it is far from clean and carries risks on a different scale to those posed by conventional power plants.

Enter the New World Order’s Ministry of Truth with a CNN broadcast, Pandora’s Promise so full of outrageous falsehoods that it can only have been scripted by Comical Ali.

Among the more level headed statements of misinformation were:

“Nuclear power is safe I tell you. There have been no birth defects resulting from the Chernobyl disaster.”

“Nobody has ever been killed as a result of nuclear energy.”

“Solar power is many times more dangerous than nuclear power.”

“No one living in the exclusion zone near Chernobyl has ever died of cancer or any other diseases because of the radiation.”

“Nuclear energy is the safe solution to global warming.”

With CNN budgets to play with, Comical Ali (for it surely must be him) has honed his presentation techniques, the broadcast was enhanced with great camera work, brilliant graphics and some stunning special effects. The outrageous lies in Pandora’s Promise were so absurd as to be humorous. But this is no laughing matter. Fukushima is the worst fuck up in the history of electricity generation and has made the myth of Japanese technical excellence rook lidicurous.

We still need nuclear power as a stop – gap, for the past hundred years while we have squandered resources in pursuit of corporate profit, the technologies proposed by Niccola Tesla for grabbing electricity from a free, inexhaustible supply have been kept out of sight. Now there is renewed interest in those ideas but it will take decades to develop them to give a realistic alternative to fossil fuel.

Earth Braces Itself For Solar Tsunami

August 3, 2010

Look in some parts of the internet and you might well think gay rights and single sex marriage are the only problems humanity has to deal with at the moment.

Look in others and you might well be swept along on a tide of irrationality and hysteria with the people who beleve one more lighted candle will plunge the world in to a Carbon Driven Armageddon the prospect of which gives AGW alarmists wet dreams.

In other places still you could gain the impression that everything is going well and all threats to human security will vanish allowing the world to become a socialist utopia just as soon as every single human on the planet opens their heart and accepts Barack Hussein Obama as their messiah.

All the time while we fret and worry about thse trivialities the great dragon nature is hovering over us and on a whim could destroy everything we have done on this little planet.

It probably will not be the solar storm heading our way right now that wipes us out, but the storm will be a reminder of how insignificant we are in relation to the cosmos
