Report calls for national delivery to decarbonise heating

Expensive heating [image credit: the Guardian]


Another day, another round of rampant evidence-free carbophobia. References to ‘carbon’ and ‘heat’ (amended in our headline to ‘heating’) show a dire lack of scientific understanding. They waffle about a ‘moral imperative’, but forget they rely on manipulated temperature data and failing climate models for evidence to support their lofty attitude.

A new Heat Commission convened by the CBI and University of Birmingham has called on the Government to develop a National Delivery Body (NDB) to lead the development and implementation of a national strategy to decarbonise heat, reports Electronic Specifier.

Heat is the largest single source of UK carbon emissions, accounting for over one-third whilst decarbonising heat stands as one of the most significant challenges in reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.

To overcome this challenge it is vital business, government, regulators and communities work together to shape the policies and delivery mechanisms that will be needed.

The Heat Commission’s report ‘Net Zero: The Road to Low-Carbon Heat’ recommends the establishment of an independent, time-limited, impartial body that will work with government on creating, coordinating and delivering an overarching NDB.

Crucially, the NDB will be expected to be locally formulated and locally delivered by local authorities who will synergise their own local and energy plan with the national programme.

Chancellor of the University of Birmingham, CBI President and Heat Commission Chair Lord Karan Bilimoria, said: “A green recovery and progress towards the UK’s net-zero emission target are doomed to fail if we don’t address the urgent need to decarbonise heat in our homes and buildings. Recent Government announcements will undoubtedly fast-forward our transition towards net-zero. The Commission’s recommendations offer a roadmap to accelerate progress, ensure our nation stays on a path to sustainable recovery and ensures the UK remains a global leader in meeting climate commitments.

“Aside from the moral imperative, there’s also a strong economic case for protecting our planet. Large scale heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency would provide a huge jobs boost for the economy at a time when new career opportunities are needed more than ever.”

The priorities of the NDB will include decarbonising transport, industrial emissions reduction, decentralising electricity supplies, and supporting local energy plans devised by local authorities.

    ““Aside from the moral imperative, there’s also a strong economic case for protecting our planet. Large scale heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency would provide a huge jobs boost for the economy at a time when new career opportunities are needed more than ever.”

    Utter tosh and nonsense from high-handed, self opinionated idiots. “moral imperative” utter bullcarp!
    This planet has been here for BILLIONS of year and survived so much natural upheavals. Upheavals that makes man’s puny efforts pale into insignificance.
    Humans can not engineer the extinction of this planet. Even a nuclear war would NOT extinguish life as evidenced by Chernobyl catastrophe, and other nuclear incidences. Alternatively humans may make themselves extinct through their own stupidity (like following this policy idea globally!).
    Opinions offered by Government to develop a National Delivery Body (NDB) is all about controlling the population — keep the younger serfs, remove everyone else.

    CO2 does NOT control the climate, humans do NOT control the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

    China’s Coronavirus Recovery Drives Massive Boom In Coal Plants
    Date: 22/07/20 South China Morning Post

    China has 249.6 gigawatts of coal-fired power capacity either under construction or in planning which is larger than the current coal fleets of the United States or India.

    Asking again – who is kidding who?

    Put government in charge of your heat.

    Millions will die.

    Like sustainable food or sustainable water, they’ll call it sustainable heat.

    The moral imperative is that anyone aspiring to be involved in this NDB should first demonstrate that they have a good grasp of thermodynamic laws; before being let loose to impose their naive views on the population.

    More elderly deaths every winter, increased prices, in pursuit of the impossible, what’s not to like….

    The more accurate version…

    Lord Karan Bilimoria, said: “A green recovery and progress towards the UK’s net-zero emission target are doomed to fail if we don’t address the urgent need to decarbonise heat in our homes and buildings.”

    the Church of the Satanic Gases is all about feelings rather than real science, as the readers here all know. Their idiocy is constantly fed with lies to get them to fork over all their wealth to the scam artists.

    Heard a comic on the radio this morning talking about JetZero. His name was Grant Shapps.

    It will be interesting to see how they propose to ship heat to the people that need it during the winter, what sort of packaging will they use and will it be available ‘on demand’.

    It is about time the jumped up tech colleges were brought back from being ‘universities’ and made into trade schools – that would serve two purposes – first, getting rid of the useless degrees that only qualify the recipient to work in the fast food industry and second, give people a chance to learn a trade that will lead to real jobs rather than the pie in the sky ‘green’ jobs.

    As an engineer (retired) I fully agree with tom0mason’s comment. This is more NWO bull crap using the Wu-flu generated fear that seems to abound in western countries for traction.

    It takes a wealthy country to afford such fools.

    ‘Green recovery’ means imposing extra burdens on the economy, so not a recovery at all.
