Lies, Damn Lies And Green Statistics
Editor's Note -  I guess we will start seeing these dummies going around saying -I'm shocked -shocked I tell you!  But you have to wonder why.  I'm not shocked!  Certainly not at the fact that everything the greenies have promoted, promised and claimed is always false.  For these people to be stunned and surprised now amazes me.  Nothing the greenies have promoted has ever worked.  So why would you think this would be any different? These people have no affection for the truth.  So how can people who are smart enough to get to high stations in life not have the intelligence to see reality based on real science and the history of these movements?  I can answer that.  It isn't I.Q., it's guts.  The idea of being a rock in the current is entirely alien to them.  The Neville Chamberlain Policy of Appeasement isn’t the exception for a time past.  It was the rule then and it isn’t any different now.  These people have spent their lives going along to get along.  They have no guts and as a result they will have no glory as they drag humanity down into an economic green abyss!  But they will be green!  Oh, just one more thing! 
To be green is to be morally defective!

Almost all predictions about the expansion and cost of German wind turbines and solar panels have turned out to be wrong – at least by a factor of two, sometimes by a factor of five. --Daniel Wentzel, Die Welt, 20 October 2012
When Germany’s power grid operator announced the exact amount of next year’s green energy levy on Monday, it came as a shock to the country. The cost burden for consumers and industry have reached a “barely tolerable level that threatens the de-industrialization of Germany”, outraged business organisations said. Since then politicians, business representatives and green energy supporters have been arguing about who is to blame for the “electricity price hammer”. After all, did not Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) promise that green energy subsidies would not be more than 3.6 cents per kilowatt hour? Now, however, German citizens have to support renewable energy by more than EUR 20 billion – instead of 14 billion Euros. How could Merkel be so wrong? --Daniel Wentzel, Die Welt, 20 October 2012

Cheaper natural gas prices in the U.S. could spell trouble for European chemical companies, as their rivals across the Atlantic benefit from lower costs. The U.S. shale-gas revolution has made natural gas roughly three times cheaper there than in Europe, and the U.S. chemical industry is reaping the benefits through cheaper energy and feedstock, leaving the European sector under the threat of increased competition. --Alessandro Torello,

 Peter Lilley MP has been appointed to the energy and climate change select committee, provoking an angry response from climate change campaigners. "The addition of climate change sceptic and oil company director Peter Lilley to the energy and climate change select committee is part of a growing picture," said Greenpeace policy director Joss Garman. "With Owen Paterson as environment secretary and anti-wind campaigner John Hayes now energy minister, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Tories are gearing up to assault the Climate Change Act and increase the UK's reliance on expensive, imported, polluting fossil fuels." --Charles Maggs,, 25 October 2012

Last week, David Cameron chaired a meeting of the Quad — the coalition’s decision-making body — at which senior ministers attempted, and failed, to agree the precise content of the Energy Bill. According to a report in The Times, it could result in a cap on new onshore wind farm developments. --James Murray,

Next month, the coalition government in Britain intends to publish its new energy bill. The coalition partners, however, are increasingly at odds over the direction of the United Kingdom’s energy policy. In view of growing antagonism, it remains unclear whether the bill can be salvaged or whether the increasing friction will lead to its delay. It is doubtful that an energy bill fudge would actually be workable, let alone economically viable. There is a growing risk that it will prove to be highly unpopular as the costs of these measures are likely to further inflate energy bills artificially. In this case, the crisis of energy policy making could quickly turn into a veritable government fiasco. --Benny Peiser,

Poland’s use of a veto to block the EU’s draft energy roadmap for 2050 has no legal basis, according to internal legal documents from the Council of the European Union. There is only one problem with this interpretation: It is outdated. The Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, Article 194 (2) gives member states a veto over the choice between different energy sources and the general structure of energy supply. –Benny Peiser,
