The heaters don’t heat, the cars don’t go far enough, the turbines don’t provide enough power, yet these are the things that Net Zero intends us to rely upon.
We have to resist the ecodoom-mongers who would rather a planet with no one living on it than one that shows any sign of human life. As a species we have struggled out of extreme poverty for all. Many still live in poverty and that must be eradicated, but many people now live a life far better than their ancestors did only a hundred years ago – let alone before the industrial revolution. Capitalism has achieved this and it continues to pull people out of poverty. It will solve the issues that need to be solved, but it cannot do it by this time tomorrow, as the ecodoomers want. To even try is a recipe for impoverishment and a huge, highly destructive lowering of living standards.
What the Net Zero push will do is make a few people very rich, on the back of businesses that are only successful because of government policies. There is no free market push for things that don’t work – these green markets are literally being created by government. We are entering a Soviet style socialism, where suppliers are not reacting to market forces but to government edict. And that never works. When we are told what to make we end up with too much of things nobody needs and not enough of what people do need, because the business owners are creating what the government orders rather than what the market demands.
Such a system is great for those in the inner circle. For politicians it is basically a way to transfer public funds to private bank accounts.
In that way Net Zero is another of the bizarre alliances between ultra-leftists who want to destroy what exists at whatever cost, ready for their much-lauded, though never seen or articulated communist utopia, and ultra-crony-capitalists who make huge profits by supplying government with goods and serves that are unwanted and unprofitable for any but those with the contacts.
At some point it might be hoped that the two factions pushing this nonsense will realise their ultimate aims are incompatible. Yet the money pouring into the capitalist side of it may encourage them to allow the communist side to keep going. And so we end in poverty for most, extreme wealth for a few, power for the commies and little improvement in planetary climate, not least because the biggest polluters aren’t interested in joining in the self-destruction.
For those not part of the groups that will benefit Net Zero is utter insanity. For the rest, it is a chance to grab power and profit by deliberate impoverishment.
This must be resisted.
The last few days have seen some remarkable videos being posted online. At first I thought they were spoofs or deep fakes, but they are directly from the Prime Minister’s Twitter account so it must be assumed that they are real. They really are most peculiar. In them the Prime Minister butters some bread, drinks some beer or eats some fish and chips, then says Build Back Butter, Build Back Bitter or Build Back Batter.
They are making fun of the phrase Build Back Better, which is being parroted by leaders around the world. Which in itself is very troubling. It used to be the case, up until circa 18 months ago, that leaders liked to be original. That they wouldn’t spout words or phrases that had already been used by someone else. But recently many of the leaders of countries around the world have been using this phrase Build Back Better.
It’s a jarring phrase because it’s not quite proper English. No Englishman would ever say build back, he would use the word rebuild. So it’s an imported phrase, something proved clearly when Johnson uses it, as he has a perfectly cromulent vocabulary that doesn’t normally stoop to such pidgin vulgarities.
Why this phrase is being repeated around the world is a question that remains unanswered. But why – when people are already asking, what does this mean, we didn’t elect you to do anything remotely to do with building anything back better – would the Prime Minister make a series of videos mocking the phrase?
It’s weird enough that the PM is putting out the sort of videos that a comedian would make to entertain his Twitter followers. It is peculiar that they refer to a phrase that is already raising hackles and appears to refer to some sort of totalitarian control under the guise of sustainability. The whole thing is incomprehensible. It is unbelievable that the PM’s office is literally posting comedy videos, so unless they are a call for help, they must have some deeper meaning.
What is it?
‘Britain will lead the way in solving the climate problem with a simple 100% reduction in our food intake’
The government today announced plans to be the first country to implement a so-called Zero Food’ policy. ‘By 2030,’ said Javier Blimp, Minister for Culture, Hospitality and Population Control, ‘We aim to have reduced food intake for most people in the country by 100%.’
That sounds a lot
When questioned he admitted that it was going to be hard to meet the target, owing to ‘people being used to eating food. The prospect of not eating food is a new idea that we have to get over with Fear, Propaganda and Bullying, as we did with the Covid stuff.’
But won’t people die without food?
‘If this happened today then yes, people would die,’ Blimp admitted. ‘But we are sure that by 2030 our scientists will have developed food substitute that will easily feed the entire population. Of course there may be a few issues at the start, but I don’t envisage any one I care for dying.
‘All the cheques, sorry, research points to a need for enforced eco-madness’
Scientists have announced that more green energy is needed to stop the planet being destroyed. ‘If the government does not act now and transfer huge amounts of public money to private companies making green energy then our funding will dry up,’ Carlos Dang said yesterday at the Conference of Climate Catastrophe.
The Alps will soon be under water
He continued, ‘There is no time to spare. If the payments do not begin soon we will have to start making more and more unhinged claims about climate change in order to frighten the population into complying.
‘We have learned a lot about how to do this by watching government ramp up Covid hysteria over the last year
