Dr Alf is over optimistic if he expects to get a strategy on energy that is clear from the EU.

This is the same EU that has member states who want to get more tourists to visit the place and wants more free movement of goods services and people.

We have not yet managed the technology of the Starship Enterprise’s “Transporter room” and Singlepoint Energy (extracting free energy from the earth’s magnetic field) which was originally suppressed by Robber Baron JP Morgan before Nikola Tesla’s death, still remains under lock and key.

Therefore, we are left with fossil fuels to power vehicles, transport food and generate power unless we build more nuclear power stations.

Moving to electric cars means mining lithium in places like Aynak in Afghanistan, where 350,000 Chinese mine-workers are hard at it. They first had to get there from China, then they had to be housed, fed, guarded by the Americans and that is before engaging in any mining. The mining requires heavy machinery and uses vast amounts of energy and then the lithium, all 3 trillion tons of it, has to be transported back to China turned into batteries and then transported again by ships (diesel powered) to car manufacturers in Asia, Brazil, China, India, Japan and Europe.

The IPCC Report, in its latest version, acknowledges that there has been no nett warming of the planet since 1998 but explains this away by saying that this gross temperature rise is being absorbed by the oceans by a process they have yet to fully understand and will then re-emerge in 25 years time with a vengeance.

People within the EU Commission actually believe this explanation despite the fact that shipping movements and emissions from ships were never in the IPCC reports and the fact that satellite photographs from NASA show that both the Arctic and Antarctic icecaps are 25% thicker and 25% larger in square kilometers than they used to be in recent times.

We are now up to 7 billion people, are flying more than ever, have growing rates of car ownership and yet the earth has seen no more than 1 degree of warming on a nett basis in 120 years.

The IPCC reports, straight out of the Club of Rome website and think tank are all based on the idea of catastrophe happening if the globe gets 4 to 6 degrees warmer.

I am no mathematician but 1 degree in 120 years does not equal 4 degrees so the entire strategy of reducing carbon emissions to “save the planet” is based on false numbers.

Yet despite this the EU seems hellbent on destroying perfectly good economies to the point where they cannot recover for bogus reasons.

The new man Miguel Arias Canete will I am sure do his best but I would have to say at what?

Strategies to solve non existent problems are a waste of time, employing vast armies of people to talk whilst creating no nett new jobs in 30 years is criminal yet this goes on year after year after year.

Dr Alf’s 3rd wish is to see the EU outsourcing non core things.

This will not happen either.

What we have is the meddlers and the misleaders in ever larger numbers, meddling with people’s lives, telling us things which it knows are untrue and wasting money on solving nonexistent problems whilst doing nothing about the real one which is adapting to global cooling,creating jobs and prosperity, improving energy security and being able to attract inward investment.

Beyond the Politics of UK Fracking – John Gelmini

Energy conservation

I thank Dr Alf for reblogging the article entitled “The British public can see fracking is no answer” published by Left Foot Forward.

Like Dr Alf I would prefer that fracking was not necessary and that we could simply conserve our way to energy self-sufficiency as Left Foot Forward suggest.

Sadly, because of lack of planning, a failure to control the population, rising birthrates, a failure to build new nuclear power stations, a failure to invest in conservation in earlier years, the squandering of money on overseas aid, unwarranted military adventurism, the Barnett Formula, too many civil servants, a bloated public sector there is no longer enough money to conserve our way out of trouble.

These are matters which have to be dealt with but we are now where we are with an urgent problem which requires an immediate solution.

A look at the facts says that we have to frack and frack now, as I have been saying in other posts.

The British public does not know that fracking is not the answer as the headline suggests and conservation would not save us from the blackouts that will almost certainly occur within the next 19 months of this Government given a harsh winter.

As an island, without the means to protect our coastline being “connected to global markets” simply leaves us vulnerable to price hikes by the Russians, OPEC and anyone else who sells us gas or any other fuel we buy to help generate electricity.

We are also vulnerable to the French who sell us nuclear power directly and to Eon the German owned power company which operates in the Midlands and has paid no corporation tax in the last 8 years.

The lights will go out without nuclear power stations which take 15 to 20 years to build and Professor James Lovelock the octegenarian GAIIA worshipper and arch environmentalist has said so many times. With 4% extra generating capacity one hard winter will take us over the precipice and into the world of blackouts and 3 day weeks which no-one under the age of 60 can possibly imagine. Those nuclear power stations are not being built or even planned so what is the alternative?

Wind farms only work for 14% of the time and are heavily subsidized. Without a new generation of electricity pylons, they simply mean ever rising power bills and more blots on the landscape, plus more cancer for anyone living within a mile of the pylons (proven over decades by the Russians who will not allow any dwelling to be within a kilometer of a pylon while our Department of Health and NHS denies the evidence and keeps the public in the dark).

There is insufficient mortgage finance to facilitate all the remedial home improvements required over and above what is already going into help to buy. There is an even bigger shortage of mortgage funds in Wales for the energy conservation required and in any case for most people with families £97 gbp in disposable income at the end of the month is not going to pay for very much home improvement.

In addition, 16% of the population cannot get finance of any kind either on normal terms or at all and the Green Bank does not have enough funds to retrofit all the eligible houses in the UK to the conservation standards required.

Over and above that, we lack the construction workers and builders required to do the work since many were laid off in the last recession and are now working as taxi drivers, or perversely, are on the dole.

Hot rocks in places like Hampshire could help as could Osprey style wave power off our coasts. Another invention I became involved with in 2012 in the form of market feasibility, capital raising, joint venture formulation and market entry, (a mobile flood barrier placed in rivers and areas of storm surge) could help, but this is at the prototyping stage and is not yet a proven technology.

The Solution
The real solution to our energy worries in Singlepoint Energy which was discovered by the Serbian scientist Nikola Tesla who died in 1944 and who worked for the original JP Morgan in America.

His invention which allowed the limitless supply of energy to be extracted from the earth’s magnetic field in perpetuity was bought from Tesla by JP Morgan for $1 million USD together with certain other ones, including Scalar weaponry, which are now being used by various military establishments around the world.

The release of Singlepoint Energy would put energy companies out of business and cut tax revenues which is why Bill Clinton and Al Gore, under instruction from the plutocrats they reported to, kept the technology embargoed as has every Government on the planet to this day.

In the absence of Singlepoint Energy, we are left for the moment with fracking. So we must frack and frack now but compensate people for any damage they incur as happened with coal mining in the past and do so with great care.

Whilst I am one of David Cameron’s harshest critics and wish to see him replaced, on this occasion I have to acknowledge that the man is right.
