The breakneck push for Net Zero is an impoverishing attack on Western lifestyle and values: Net Zero will ruin people’s lives

In what insane world is it a government’s job to make things worse and more expensive for its people?

Net Zero will ruin people’s lives. This is so clear that it must be a deliberate aim, at least for some of those pushing this absurd anti-human policy. For others it may just be acceptable collateral damage. Either way, centuries of increasing living standards in the West are being ended by dogmatic and ridiculous policies that whilst enriching minute parts of society, will enfeeble many more.

The whole idea of Net Zero for an individual country making any world-wide difference, particularly for a small country like Britain, is laughable. Even if you accept wholeheartedly the need to cut global emissions – and that is not the settled opinion that is claimed – the suggestion that by cutting emissions in our tiny area of Northern Europe we will somehow improve conditions globally is madness. Our emissions are circa 1% of those emitted around the globe. Even if we cut our emissions to nothing we would make no discernible difference.

‘We’re all in this together, every little counts’ activists say, but that argument is nonsense as we’re most definitely not all in this together. China and India are huge emitters and are taking no interest in cutting their emissions. Forcing Britons to lower their energy usage and stop travelling will make no noticeable difference, except for forcing many into fuel poverty and cold homes whilst stopping us travelling to visit friends and family because it is too expensive.

How can any of this be sensible?

Where Net Zero is coming from is also appalling to see. You might expect these sort of mad policies to emanate from a woke leftist party that loves to virtue signal, but it is the Tory party that is currently pushing these policies. Not to say that Labour won’t be just as keen when they get into power, but if we cannot rely on Conservatives to push back on obvious stupidity then there is a real problem in our democracy.

These policies were never voted for by the public. Yes they were hidden in the bowels of the last manifesto, but that was an election fought over Brexit. There was no expectation that the government would take some minor point from their manifesto and make it a main plank of their ongoing policies. Britain has one Green MP, so why is the Tory party implementing Green policies? We should not even be talking about any of these ultra-green policies until the electorate shows they want them by voting for rather more Green MPs.

Net Zero is going to push out cheap and reliable energy and modes of transport and replace them with less reliable, much more expensive versions. In what insane world is it a government’s job to make things worse and more expensive for its people? We left behind governing of the people for the elite when we took the world out of feudalism. The industrial revolution was a great thing that has lifted people out of poverty around the globe. Now we seem to be reneging on the governing of the people for the people that we have been practising and returning to an elite-knows-best system where those who benefit from these policies push them through to the detriment of everyone else.

For let’s not ignore the fact that these new policies will affect the rich very differently to the poor. MPs even get their second home heating bills paid on expenses whilst many people already struggling cannot heat their first and only property. Yet government policies are deliberately inflating prices.

With the refusal to make us energy secure and an over-reliance on renewables we are heading towards energy blackouts as happens in South Africa. Our governments have been so negligent that we will no longer be able to rely on flicking a switch and getting power, as has been the norm for decades. This should have been the ongoing norm had governments not been seduced into destroying normality for a gold star from their mates in the global elite.

Some politicians will know what is coming and regard it as an unfortunate side effect of the transition to their much touted greener world. But poverty should never be seen in this way. If their policies are causing poverty and hardship then they are the wrong policies.

But other politicians will know exactly what is coming. They will be cheering it on, knowing that this deliberately inflicted poverty will help bring about the huge changes that they want to see in the world.

For ultimately these green policies are not about greening the planet. How could they be when the UK’s contribution to emissions is so tiny? Behind the call for Net Zero lies a callous, anti-human power grab. These policies actively hurt people now whilst promising a chimerical success sometime in the future – a success that can’t be measured but will always cost more money and require more sacrifice.

The only thing these policies manage is to transfer power and freedom from individuals to the central decision makers. Other people will decide how far we can travel, how many flights we can take, how much we can heat our houses. It’s a society where individual freedom is replaced by diktats from above and people live within strict boundaries, punished if they try and deviate from the State’s decisions. It’s not the West that we developed and defended. Net Zero is a bizarre mix of elements some, like the social control it relies on, more reminiscent of communism than the free West. A technocratic elite that believes it knows best, and has access to the money to enrich themselves will tell us what to do, whilst not doing it themselves – witness the delegates giving Planes are Bad messages at climate conferences that they used planes to get to.

The big problem is that Net Zero makes perfect sense to those in power, as it consolidates their power and allows them to make huge transfers of public money to private companies. Few people leave politics poorer than they entered it. Even if they have impoverished their country in the process

The push for Net Zero is either insane or a deliberate attempt to impoverish

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.

Govt: Our Green targets are easy to meet if everyone simply goes vegan, never travels abroad and lives without heating

‘People must stop complaining about Green policies foisted upon them’

In a bizarre twist, the government which was elected under the banner of Conservatism has announced radical Green policies that no one voted for.

worms not beed

A little bit of veganism never hurt anyone, except for those it did

In response to criticism that to unilaterally reduce UK emissions by 75% by 2035 was lunacy and would destroy the economy, Minister for Convincing the Public of Untruths, Kevin Pult said, ‘This is alarmism of the worst kind. The targets will easily be achieved if people just make a few minor changes to their lives.’

Minor changes

‘We have got used to eating meat, but just because we have done it for thousands of years does not mean it is better than eating delicious worms. And is being warm as great as we make it seem?’

Heathrow more pleasant

He couldn’t say much more as he had to dash to Heathrow to get a flight to a conference on climate change in Hawaii. ‘Heathrow is much more pleasant with less passengers,’ he added. ‘For the sake of our children…

Lockdown Trumpet: Tories announce economy to be destroyed by 2035 in order to reduce emissions

‘Britain will be at the vanguard of the Green progress towards Utopia’

The government has today announced that they intend to destroy the economy by 2035.

‘This is wonderful news,’ Amelia Abu Higginson Minister for Genocide and other Green Issues said in Parliament. ‘It is less than 15 years away, Britain will be the first country to deliberately destroy its economy in the crazy chase for lower emissions.’

Beating China at last

‘We are particularly pleased to be so far ahead of China, who appear to be implementing no insane Green Nonsense at all. How they expect to virtue signal their compliance with the New World Order I cannot imagine.’

But no one voted for this?

When asked why the Tories were doing this when no one had voted for it, Amelia said, ‘No one voted for lockdown, but we did that anyway! The people are too stupid to know what is best. It is better that we reduce emissions and live in freezing poverty than be happy’.

No travel 

Details are sketchy but it appears that the public will no longer be allowed to travel, eat, drink, talk, drive or go outside. ‘You will own nothing, and you will be happy,’ Amelia said, getting into her government plane and flying to Davos

Banning petrol cars in 2030 is crazy

The madness has infiltrated everything. There is no area where there is not an attempt to reprogram life and introduce sweeping change that is neither sensible nor wanted.

The latest example is the PM’s announcement that sales of petrol and diesel cars will be banned in 2030, and that hybrids will be banned in 2035.

This sounds like a great idea. We have to take care of the planet and use our resources wisely. But we also have to care for the population and not inflict expensive, inappropriate technology that will lower people’s standard of living and hugely increase their transportation costs.

You might have thought that with the response to Coronavirus decimating the British economy and no doubt increasing taxes in the future that the government would hold back on ideas like this.

But they are pushing forward with a 10 point Green vision plan of which this is a clearly unhelpful part. The range of an electric car is nowhere near practicable. This will improve but to set a deadline so soon is not sensible. And how the electric power that is to be used is generated is still uncertain and potentially polluting itself.

Huge changes like this should wait until the technology is actually available and working to the required levels. What is the point of hobbling the British population so as to reduce emissions when China is still belching pollution into the atmosphere?

There are enough issues to deal with at the moment without the government introducing an entirely unnecessary extra one.
