Australia has a Green obsession in the Main Stream Media; the Greens Party (obviously); in most of the Labor Party but also in at least half of the Liberal/National Party.
The Mail-On-Line Reports:
Owen Paterson accuses ministers of raising energy prices for the poor
- • Former Environment Secretary said support for flawed wind and solar power cost billions and made electricity and gas needlessly expensive
- • He called on Whitehall to was to scrap the Climate Change Act
- • Warned claims of impending environmental disaster were 'exaggerated'
The former Environment Secretary attacked a so-called ‘green blob’ at the heart of Government yesterday – accusing Whitehall officials and ministers of raising energy prices for the poor.
Owen Paterson said their support for flawed wind and solar power cost billions and made electricity and gas needlessly expensive
He said the ‘green blob’ included civil servants and quangos in thrall to the climate change and environmental lobby. He claimed it had blocked him from prioritising shale gas exploration as a more efficient way to secure energy for the future.
Mr Paterson, who was removed as Environment Secretary in July, said the only way to ‘keep the lights on’ was to scrap the Climate Change Act, which requires the UK to use more renewable energy and is backed by civil servants.Meanwhile, the LNP Government paid a token tribute to the majority of citizens aware of the Falsified AGW Hoax by scrapping the Carbon (dioxide) tax but leaving in place a plethora of other Green "blobs" including the citizen-punishing Renewable Energy Targets. To misquote Paterson: the only way to ‘keep the lights on’ was to scrap the Renewable Energy Targets.
