Nobody in power wants to face the facts and backtrack, even though the unpleasant reality is staring them in the face.

Earlier this year, DEFRA published a report by the Air Quality Expert Group into the impacts of biomass on air quality. The results make for startling reading.

Among the findings are:

    This is “good” pollution to be treated to a different set of rules. After all it is “orgonic!” Totally different from that “evil” stuff from underground. Interesting, The biomass harvested is counted as pollution load of the harvester country and not the users. Not sure who gets charged for the transport…pg

    I noticed that ‘Biomass’ made up a surprisingly large proportion of the official estimates of global / national ‘renewable’ energy production, typically several times larger than solar, wind, geothermal, unicorn farts, etc. Then I started to think whether my wood fired home barbecue or pizza over was included, and Boy Scout fires, winter leaves, bonfires, crop trash burning, etc., and how this number might have been estimated. Anyway, if most of this kind of ‘biomass sourced energy’ was excluded from the official figures (as IMO it should) then the percentage of energy sourced from ‘renewables’ would probably fall by about half. Aah, now I get it.

    Another great example of the “law of Unintended Consequences”, or that the road to Hell, is paved with green intentions.

    As an aside a Greenp!ss volunteer was came round yesterday. The conversation went like this:
    “Hi I’m from Greenp!ss” said the smiling idiot.
    “What is it like representing a criminal organisation?” I replied
    “What do you mean?”
    “Greenp!ss distributes lies and propaganda about climate change”
    “Greenp!ss profits from the fraud that is climate change”
    “Greenp!ss promotes the windpower scam”
    “Greenp!ss promotes the fraud that is solar power”.
    “Do you want me to go on?
    At this point the volunteer was standing mouth agape.
    “No I didn’t think so- now you can move on as I have nothing further to say, unless you want me to- so goodbye”
    He wandered off, looking dazed and I closed my door.

    Dakota Access Pipeline owner sues Greenpeace, arguing it broke organized crime law

    The company behind the Dakota Access Pipeline, which drew international attention for potentially endangering the water supply of Native American tribes in the Dakotas, accused Greenpeace and other environmental activists who helped organize protests of eco-terrorism, racketeering and other crimes.

    How I pray that Greenp!ss and other enviromafia groups get sued, jailed and bankrupted.

    The Russians gave them a bit of a scare…

    Russian authorities seized the Greenpeace ship the Arctic Sunrise in international waters in the Russian Exclusive Economic Zone on 19 September 2013, arrested the crew at gunpoint, towed the ship to Murmansk, and detained the crew of 28 activists and two freelance journalists. The Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal investigation, charging the activists initially with piracy and later with hooliganism.
    . . .
    Greenpeace rejected the suggestion of illegal drugs on the Arctic Sunrise. Certain pharmaceutical drugs are kept in a safe. The Russian authorities broke the safe after they took the vessel.

    The ‘hooligans’ were sent home after two months in custody.
