Stop the “Silly Ask” - Repeal Climate Act!

In the Energy Bill Chancellor George Osborne has taken the first steps towards repeal of the Climate Change Act, by delaying CO2 targets until after the next general election. We believe repeal of climate legislation will become a key election campaign issue, which will - for the first time - allow the public to vote ‘for’ or ‘against’ this silly climate law. The Chancellor’s pragmatic approach to climate and energy policy is reassuring hardpressed businesses and families. 

Osborne is proving himself to be a Bolshevik challenging the climate and energy orthodoxy supported by the increasingly reactionary Libdems, who are so blinded by green cult vested interests that they can no longer distinguish between right or wrong. 

Reconsidering CO2 budgets is a victory for common sense. Larger CO2 emitters like China, India and the USA will not pass a climate law. Currently the EU has 20% emissions cuts targets and the UK has 30% - this puts British businesses and jobs at risk due to higher energy bills - this makes no sense at all!

Start decommissioning windfarms

We need a U-turn now. We need to start decommissioning turbines - not building more.  

Unfortunately, because of Libdem DECC Minister Ed Davey the Energy Bill has not scrapped costly windfarms yet, so another £178 will be added to our energy bills. Top climate scientists tell us there is still no evidence for a climatic “tipping point”, but there is one for energy consumers.  The public have reached a “tipping point”, whereby they can no longer function in the modern world. The reactionary green “Limits to growth” agenda, supported by the Libdems - which aims to bring about the collapse of our modern civilisation - has become a reality in this Energy Bill. 

Costly windfarms will kill economic growth. If we stick to these silly “Green” energy policies people won’t be able to heat their homes, drive a car to work, or travel by air or rail, because it’s unaffordable. Millions of families have reached the “tipping point” where they have to just turn off gas central heating all together! Enough is enough!  

The three guilty men: Cameron, Miliband and Clegg acted foolishly and should never have listened to the eccentric Friends of the Earth “Big Ask” campaigners for a Climate Change Bill. The “Big Ask” has proven to be an extremely complex, costly, and arrogant “Silly Ask”. 

Repeal the Climate Change Act Now!
