My Daughter in California tells me the Trump Administration has pulled the plug on any more money being spent on Global warming projects. It would appear the USA has been spending money on low, prone to flooding lands in South Asia, that will stop. She also tells me California has had a colder wetter winter than she ever remembers, more water fell this winter than in the last ten years, they were on a form of water rationing for a couple of years now they have full reservoirs. The East Coast have been hit with a massive snow storms. and also had heavy rain falls.
Meanwhile here in the North East of England the coastline is disappearing under a wall of wind turbines and another contract has just been signed. We can see for ourselves that in the very cold still air between weather fronts they are not working and then in the high winds again have to be shut down, they are OK in summer when we have mild winds and it is warm in other words not needed.
Wilton they are building new Power Stations burning wood chips from Canada, shipped to our docks then transported to Wilton, last week an article was claiming wood burning fires are worse than burning coal for the amount of carbon and particles they release into the air.
We are told we must (MUST) go organic yet I know from experience this is not the best way of producing enough food, it takes up more land and is more costly to City dwellers who rely of Supermarkets, OK for us with access to the local farm shops and can afford the extra cost, The UK has never produced all its own food, I have just eaten my porridge with berries from Spain and Chile.
My question is:- why should the little old UK be paying for something the rest of the world seems to ignore, Germany closing Nuclear and going back to Coal, China? well we have all seen the pictures, India and South Asia putting millions of trucks and cars on the road year by year. Then we have Famine in Africa once the bread basket of the world, that tears me up Children dying whilst we potter along under the Halo of feeling Green, it is an illusion or is it.
