Who runs the “Green Energy Sector”….. environmentalists?….HA!…….”financial flim flammers”!

One would think that all the glossy feel good clean and green ads and rhetoric from politicians and environmentalists were all about the products that are going to save the climate, save the whales, save the polar bears and save the world from filthy human over consumption and pollution……….

YOU WOULD BE WRONG…………….all the new “green rhetoric” and development in Wind, Solar, Biofuels and anything else that is labelled “Environmentally Green” is bullshit. Absolute bullshit!

The green industry is nothing more than just another massive SCAM which was developed and promoted to rip the almighty dollar out of hard working honest people’s pockets for little or zero return.

Here’s another story, which seems to be almost on a daily basis now about another supposed  “environmentalist” assuming a high position within a government that controls $$$ for “climate change” that has nothing whatsoever to do with being a good environmentalist but more into shaking down as much loot as one can get before being “outed” as just another greedy malcontent!

The tangled tale of Lord Deben and a dodgy Severn barrage

A proposal for the biggest infrastructure project in British history has shaky foundations but some powerful friends

An extraordinary picture of the state of our public life has come to light in recent days, in accounts of the involvement of some of our most senior politicians in the vast, lucrative and expanding industry of “renewable energy”.

At the centre of the picture is David Cameron, who last month nominated Lord Deben (formerly John Gummer) as the new chairman of the influential and supposedly “independent” Committee on Climate Change, set up to advise government on energy policy under the Climate Change Act. This is despite the fact that Lord Deben’s array of environmental business interests includes chairmanship of Forewind Ltd, a consortium of four energy firms planning the world’s largest, and most heavily subsidised, offshore wind farm in the North Sea.

Lord Deben’s suitability will be assessed on September 4, when he is interviewed by the Commons select committee on energy and climate change, chaired by Tim Yeo MP. Yeo was a junior environment minister under Lord Deben when the latter was environment secretary in the 1990s.

Mr Cameron has also lately taken a very active interest in a new £30 billion project for a tidal barrage across the Severn estuary, which he discussed at Downing Street last month with the former Labour Cabinet minister Peter Hain, acting on behalf of a consortium organised by a tiny Welsh company, Corlan Hafren – of which Deben was until very recently a director.

Attention has lately been drawn to the declared business interests of both Lord Deben and Mr Yeo – who last year earned more than £200,000, on top of his MP’s salary of £80,000, working for companies mostly involved in “green” energy schemes. The apparent exception was his role as “environmental adviser” to Eurotunnel, by whom he was paid up to £1,000 an hour. But Eurotunnel, it turns out, is planning to run a £220 million “interconnector” power cable through its service tunnel, to provide back-up from French nuclear power stations for the times when our wind turbines don’t supply enough power to the national grid.

    While there will always be cover ups and masks about who or what we’re actually buying and where it comes from/who it goes to, does it matter? It is indeed a broken practicional system between politicians and solar businesses.
