"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

I'm With Him

I'm with Klein Verzet on this one:

"In the Times today a curious piece centred around the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. They maintain that in order to meet the targets for CO2 emission reduction, living standards in Britain and the West in general must fall dramatically.
The wealthier parts of the world, including Britain, will have to seriously consider reducing their levels of consumption over the next 10-15 years while we put in place low-carbon technologies.

That may mean having only one car per household, a smaller fridge, buying fewer clothes and electronic goods and curtailing the number of weekend breaks that we have.
Now, for quite a long time now there has been the suspicion that the climate change myth was concocted with an ulterior motive in mind. That the ends were not so much a more sustainable world, but more tax revenue and redistribution of wealth between nations. But the centres director, Kevin Anderson, tells as as sort of an afterthought, it may be much worse. Much, much worse (emphasis added).
It’s a very uncomfortable message but we need a planned economic recession. Economic growth is currently incompatible with reductions in absolute emissions.
Let's analyse that a little: Mr. Anderson wants a planned recession. A recession is an economy shrinking. In fact, a planned recession is a planned shrinking economy. Or, in short: A planned economy.

To 'plan' a recession, one would have to have absolute control of the economy. Mr. Anderson is arguing for a plan economy, the ultimate dream of every totalitarian facsimile of human life ever since Marx dreamt up his childishly misguided vision of humanity. I do not know whether Mr. Anderson was caught off-guard, or whether he thinks this the most natural and innocuous statement to make in present times, but he truly let the cat out of the bag.

This is what the environmental scam is all about: A means to legitimise taking control of the economy and change it into a plan economy. Because the last time it worked so well too. Time to dust off Friedrich Hayeks 'The Road to Serfdom' (or here for the short version; pdf) and start reading, methinks. If you prefer pictures: Here you go"

  2. Hi Spider - I take it you disagree? I like it - it fits very well with my tin foil hat.

  3. GV the clown is in need of a good kicking. He serves up the planned recession and would deny planned growth.

    The whole "GREEN" shit is to disguise the fact that we've been robbed. We cannot afford anything any more. People with real money can. And that means in the "free" markets we cannot afford to buy.

    So the cloak of GREEN is wrapped around every act we would consider.

    GREEN is rationing, but he will experience no rationing because he's a foundation bitchboy.

  4. There is a widespread confusion of the science of global warming and the political response. No-one can say, on the current evidence, that there is undeniably a human element in the temperature profile of the last 50 years, or so. There just is not enough data, and there is not enough faith in the climate modeling procedures.

    There MIGHT be an effect. That's all anyone can honestly say.

    If there IS a significant human element, then all carbon sequestration, carbon credit dealing, and emission targets in the world are probably going to make no real impact. What would be needed would be a way of getting the CO2 out of the atmosphere; cutting down on the amount going in just is probably not going to help.

    Which all supports the contention that what is happening, indeed, is a global economic scam, which possibly could be directed at installing multinational governmental organisations to 'oversee' global 'problems'.

  5. Isn't it possible that climate change is real and man made - AND that the political classes see it as an opportunity to have their wicked way?

  6. OK so KV is saying that it's all a myth and there has to be room for doubt but we all know the research:funding dilemma of scientists. None of you has said anything I disagree with - except Spider (unless he was telling me to eff off in which case I understand him perfectly & disagree).

  7. Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research

    Is that East Anglia Polytechnic?

    The Tyndall centre is a marketing unit of the polytechic of Naaarwich. That's the one which does film studies and creative writing.

    The East Anglia Polytechnic (Chelmsford and Cambridge mostly, but with a few smaller units such as one in Peterborough) only recently changed its name to Anglia Ruskin University. It is pitching to provide usuful-ish degrees in things like engineering, but it still provides HNDs - for which, of course, it gets sneered at.
