Leaders In The Race To Net Zero

On March 21, 2022 the Shetland Islands were leaders in the race to net zero. By April 2023, ninety-six percent of the population will be in fuel poverty.

    So 120.000 is the minimum to survive the green new deal and not live like a dog in the new world order.

    My guess is that 98 – 99% of the world population earn less than that.

      You would be correct. But live like dogs is their intent. They get off on control and other people suffering. It’s a disease

    Play stupid games; win stupid prizes.

    Do you really expect people to see those two headlines and conclude that moving toward net-zero is causing the Shetland’s fuel poverty? Do you believe your audience is really that stupid? Do they not read the linked articles? Do you?

    Because if you did, you would learn from the first one that the Shetland Islands are already — and have long been — among the most fuel-poor in Britain, despite the long history of oil extraction in their region.

    So the question is simple: do you actually believe the things you’re implying in the face of the very evidence you supply, or are you trying to manipulate what you see as a stupid audience into believing a lie?

    You would further learn that the wind farms in development for a decade and due to come online in 2024 are expected to radically change this situation, that the islands are investing in innovative hydrogen extraction technologies in part to use some of their excess energy because they will be generating more wind energy than they can use and more than the current infrastructure will allow them to export.

      The problem was created by government focusing on unreliable green energy while shutting down their reliable energy sources. Perhaps you should use less insults and instead try using your brain?

      • Scott Sauyet says:

        Neither article says anything remotely like that. It’s not that they’ve been shutting down anything, and the likely PM is talking about increasing nearby offshore drilling for oil and gas. But that’s not likely to help. In fact, “New oil and gas could take a quarter of a century to pump out, will be eventually sold at global prices, and have no real impact on energy bills yet still fuel the climate crisis.”

        The problem is that the energy crisis sparked by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has worsened the overall energy situation across Europe, and that it’s much worse in such a far-flung British region. Moreover the timing is terrible, since it’s only about eighteen months until the new cleaner, cheaper system comes online.

        But there is no indication at all in either article or in the juxtaposition of them that the green energy investment had anything at all to do with the current crisis.

        Your posting the two together to try to prove something is disingenuous at best. If you’ve actually read and understood both articles, then it’s far worse: it’s crassly manipulative.

        Someone pointed to this site as one that had strong counterarguments to the global warming consensus. Although I’d seen it before and was turned off by the overtly political things that fill up the front page, I decided to give it another look. This is the first climate article I saw. If it’s any indication of the quality of this site, then it’s definitely not worth my time.
