- 65. With Tory MPs like this who needs to vote Labour? – Telegraph Blogs
Just when I've vowed to lay off writing about the wind industry for a while because I'm so utterly nauseated by its putrescent stench, along comes a story like this:Sacked Energy Minister Charles Hendry has not wasted any time cashing in on his expertise; he has just been announced as the chairman of the wind energy giants Forewind. The consortium comprising of four international companies -Scottish and Southern, RWE, Statoil and Statkraf – was awarded the contract in 2010 to build the huge “Dogger Bank” windfarm 125 kilometres off the Yorkshire coast.Though Hendry has waited for the appropriate cooling off period of three months since leaving government, a look through his declared meetings while a minister leaves an unfortunate taste in the mouth: between June 2010 and October 2011 Hendry hobnobbed six times with the representatives of the companies that make up Forewind, and now he is their boss.

- 66. Wind Farms are OK Because... Barnacles
Offshore wind farms are OK after all, exciting new research by scientists has revealed, because barnacles.Up until now, offshore wind farms had been widely considered by many experts to be about the most pointlessly extravagant and inefficient form of energy generation short of paying Olympic athlete Mo Farah £1 million an hour to run inside a giant, jewel-encrusted hamster wheel attached to a turbine.Besides being wildly expensive (so heavily subsidised by compulsory levies that they cost six times more than coal energy) they are also: shortlived (because it's hard to erect such large mechanical structures in such hostile terrain); subject to declining efficiency; they kill an average 110-330 birds per turbine per year; they blight the view from the coast; they disrupt shipping; they kill whales and other marine life; they drive up energy prices; they increase fuel poverty; they enrich rent-seekers; they require vast pylons to carry their costly, intermittent energy from the sea across the land.

- 67. Top Tory Tim Yeo who earns thousands from green energy firms says it is 'reasonable' for bills to increase | Daily Mail
A senior Tory MP who earns thousands of pounds advising green energy firms today insisted it was 'reasonable' for electricity bills to rise by £100-a-year to help pay for more wind farms.Tim Yeo, chairman of the Commons energy and climate change committee, leapt to the government's defence after it emerged deal between Tories and Lib Dems on Britain's power plans would see bills rise.Electricity bills could rise by £75 a year by 2020 to fund a new generation of wind farms and nuclear reactors. And by 2030 annual bills will go up by an estimated £178 under all the Government’s green and fuel poverty policies.

- 68. Greenpeace and The Guardian: yet again, sticking up for the bad guys – Telegraph Blogs
When is a scandal not a scandal? When it comes via Greenpeace and is splashed over the front page of The Guardian, I'd say.While obviously I'm delighted that The Guardian and Greenpeace think I'm so powerful that I have the ability to effect a 180 degree shift in government onshore wind policy just by the mere threat of standing in a by-election, I do think a little examination of news priorities might be in order here.In an op-ed for tomorrow's Daily Telegraph (which will probably appear online later this evening), I explain – not for the first time: but hey repetition is always useful if you want to get your idea across – why it was that I chose to stand in Corby as the anti-wind farm candidate. It's because I honestly believe that the Great Wind Energy Scam is by far the greatest scandal of our age. As I've argued time and again, in articles like this, this, this, and this, the wind industry is a very expensive solution to a non-existent problem.

- 69. Germany's Green-Power Program Crushes the Poor | National Review Online
On May 7, Tom Friedman published an op-ed in the New York Times filled with praise for Germany’s green-power program. “What the Germans have done in converting almost 30 percent of their electric grid to solar and wind energy from near zero in about 15 years has been a great contribution to the stability of our planet and its climate,” gushed Friedman. “ . . . This is a world-saving achievement.” Friedman is not alone in his admiration for the German energy program. President Obama has hailed it too, saying that the world should “look to Berlin” as the model for its energy future.However, what Friedman, Obama, and other admirers of the German green-energy strategy fail to say is that it has come at the expense of sky-high electricity rates.

- 71. Labour doesn't understand Energy | Roger Helmer MEP
Ed Davey, jokingly known as Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, has finally realised, despite his green obsessions, that he can’t keep the lights on in Britain without a serious policy change........ Fanfare. Drum roll. Enter Luciana Berger MP, stage left. She, we are told, is Labour’s Spokesman (or as she might say, Spokesperson) on Climate Change........Ms. Berger needs some basic lessons in economics. Hasn’t she read, first of all, the recent research (including that by Prof Gordon Hughes of Edinburgh University) showing that our primary renewable technology, wind power, fails to achieve significant emissions reductions, and fails to add significant incremental generating capacity? Has she read the research by Verso Economics and others that each “green job” created in the renewables industry costs several jobs in the real economy, as higher energy prices create a barrier to growth and investment?

- 72. World's poor need grid power, not just solar panels - opinion - 04 August 2014 - New Scientist
Small-is-beautiful electricity can't power a way out of poverty; big energy is either dirty or uneconomic. Time for some new ideasTHIS year the World Bank approved a big grant for the latest phase of the world's largest hydroelectric scheme. The Inga 3 dam is part of a megaproject on the Congo river in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). With construction due to begin next year, the project could one day deliver twice as much electricity as the world's current largest power station, the Three Gorges dam in China.

- 73. The whole of the UK is short of infrastructure | John Redwood's Diary
Some of you have commented that London has grown faster because it has taken a disproprtionate share of the infrastructure investment. It is difficult to square this with the reality.The truth is that much of the UK is short of transport capacity. The country is gradually benefitting from a big expansion of digital broadband capacity, with major investment in all regions. London, the south-east and the east are suffering more than the rest of the country from a failure to invest in enough reservoir capacity for water demands. Electricity is delivered by national grid, and gas and oil are shared around the whole country. There is, it is true, only one high speed train line from London to the Channel tunnel. The rest of the railway network was shared around by Victorian entrepreneurs who put substantial capacity into the then prosperous industrial regions. Modern subsidy perpetuates the broad shape of the Victorian railway, as adjusted by Beeching. If you look at road investment the south of the country has received less motorway investment than the Midlands, Lancashire and Yorkshire. East Anglia, Devon and Cornwall, Lincolnshire and Northumberland have all been left out of the motorway age.

- 74. Time for a Con-Lab pact on nuclear power? | Roger Helmer MEP
The former Labour government, after years of prevarication, had finally come round to accepting the need for new nuclear capacity – at least to replace old capacity coming to the end of its life, and perhaps to increase the overall contribution of nuclear to the UK’s generating needs.But today we have Chris Huhne, former Lib-Dem MEP and now, bizarrely, the Energy Secretary in the coalition, telling us that we need more wind power, and insisting there will be no public support for nuclear.

- 75. Why is the US economy doing better than the UK? | John Redwood's Diary
All the so called neo-Kenysians are out and about telling us that the US is recovering well owing to further fiscal stimulus, whilst the UK is said to be faltering thanks to a government “cutting too far and too fast”. It is time to debunk this nonsense.Let me start by saying I think Keynes was a great economist. His insights into the creation of money, inflation, and growth are important. All mainstream political parties are heir to his traditions in several respects. All agree that the state should borrow to offset a fall in demand in a recession. All agree that there needs to be controls over money and credit creation with a monopoly money system organised by the state. The Central Bank has to decide on overall levels of money and credit. They do not, however, tend to follow his precepts in a boom, when they ought to be asking the state to control spending and repay debt.

- 76. We need to talk about wind farms… – Telegraph Blogs
“Energy prices may rise by a third,” says our disastrous secretary of state of energy and climate change Chris Huhne. Rubbish. They’re going to rise by a hell of a lot more than that before he is finished. Alternative energy, let us never forget, is just that: an alternative to energy. Wind power and solar power are so risibly inefficient that the only way they can ever be economically viable is with lashings and lashings of taxpayer subsidy.

Wind energy is great says a new report commissioned by the Labour think tank Institute For Public Policy Research...........But wait. Before we rush to beautify even more of our countryside with these miraculous, bat-chomping eco-crucifixes, perhaps we ought to have a quick glance at the bona fides of the people responsible for this report.Guido already has.He notes that two out of the report's three authors are senior employees of a wind company called GL Garrad Hassan. (And the third is an environmental activist – or "green tech cheerleader" as he trendsomely bills himself on Twitter).

The deadline to develop a new design of nuclear power plant has been brought forward by 15 years as the central government tries to reduce the nation's reliance on smog-producing coal-fired power stations.A team of scientists in Shanghai had originally been given 25 years to try to develop the world's first nuclear plant using the radioactive element thorium as fuel rather than uranium, but they have now been told they have 10, the researchers said."In the past the government was interested in nuclear power because of the energy shortage. Now they are more interested because of smog," said Professor Li Zhong, a scientist working on the project.

- 79. Another environmentalist goes sceptic | Roger Helmer MEP
According to the Good Book, “there is joy in heaven over one sinner that repenteth”. And recently, we’ve had several. There was George Monbiot, long-time anti-nuclear campaigner, recently converted to the nuclear cause (although for the bad reason that it cuts CO2 emissions). There was James Lovelock, of the Gaia Hypothesis, who has said “Twenty years ago we knew where the climate was going. Now we don’t”. And now we have Fritz Vahrenholt.

The high cost of electricity produced by Germany’s solar program, even when compared to a widely criticized advanced nuclear project in Finland, undermines the prevailing view that solar is ready to scale-up while next generation nuclear designs are too expensive to pursue.
