The Tories must seize the chance to rethink climate change policy – Telegraph

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Are we finally seeing the first signs of commonsense from the MSM, regarding climate change?
Apart from the likes of Booker, Dellers and Rose, there has been little more then the odd whinge about energy bills.

Enter Fraser Nelson of the Spectator, who starts:

When Benedictine monks first arrived to restore Pluscarden Abbey, a beautiful ruin in northeast Scotland, they faced a battle against the elements. It had no roof, let alone heating, and even when restored to its medieval glory it cost a fortune to keep warm. But when I visited last month, I learned that a miracle has happened. A biomass boiler has arrived, tucked away next to the organ, with a subsidy scheme that turns cost into profit. For every £1 spent in woodchip, the monks receive £4 in subsidy. The Lord works in mysterious ways, but nothing is more mysterious than the financing of green energy.

    This does presuppose that the Tory Government can think.
    I have the feeling – from a great distance – that too many of them read The Guardian.

    Contracts, nothing happens without ink so whatever went on with Drax won’t be nice.

    Its likely we are on the edge of some Energy Revolution. When Fracked Gas and Oil comes on stream its going to bust up many if not all of the existing energy business models. Wont be good news for the energy companies, and certainly will doom all the current subsidy malarky.

    I have little doubt that the bigger players in the game will be fully aware of the situation, and are no doubt busy jumping on the as yet invisible to most, new bandwagon🙂

    It will be extremely hot forecast for western North America. The range of the jet stream shows brown and red area. The cold will be in the North Atlantic, northern Europe and Russia.
