"Windfarms? We may as well use hamsters on treadmills"
A weird and irrational cult has us in its grip. If the Mormons or the Moonies started taking over the BBC and the Government, which then harangued and persecuted us into wearing funny underwear or getting married in mass ceremonies, we would – I hope – rise in revolt.
But the ‘Man-made Climate Change’ fanatics are applauded and praised, even as they force us to abandon perfectly sensible electric lights, and instead subject ourselves to strange, flickering substitutes, simultaneously worse and more costly than the ones they replace.
There is worse to come. The same people wish to compel us to rely for our power on windmills, million upon million of them, as if we had never discovered more efficient and reliable ways of generating electricity.
And they are succeeding. Few areas in Britain are now unthreatened by deranged projects to install intrusive, gigantic wind-farms on prominent sites.
This must be one of the first instances of a civilisation voluntarily and consciously going backwards. We might as well rely for our economic and industrial future on tens of millions of hamsters pattering frantically round treadmills. Hamsters only do this by night. Windmills only make electricity when it is windy. See the problem?

And also via The Australian, British Green Party leader Caroline Lucas spells out the real agenda at the party conference on Friday:
A transition to a post carbon world is about jobs, it's about a more equal society and it's about a way of life with a potential to be far more fulfilling than the turbo-charged consumerism that is being pedaled by the other politicians today.
Nothing to do with saving the planet, and all to do with socialism. But you knew that already, didn't you?
