Lights To Go Out Thanks To EU Loonytoons Energy Policy

Britain Facing Energy Crisis Thanks Government Obsession With Renewables
Britain is facing an imminent and unprecedented energy crisis thanks to its growing dependency on Ssustainable” energy sources such as wind and solar, an spokesman for the country’s electricity and gas regulator has warned.

Andrew Wright, a senior executive at Ofgem, told a conference on future energy spplies that some households would have to pay more just to keep the lights on while others “sit in the dark” due to failure of electricity supplies to meed demand.

Because of the closure of coal mines and solid fuel power generators, Britain has lost much of its energy producing capacity, meaning there is “much less flexibility” in the supply.

Wright warned that in future richer customers may be able to pay a premium for a more reliable level of service while poorer people have their electricity supply rationed.

“At the moment everyone has the same network – with some difference between rural and urban – but this is changing and these changes will produce some choices for society,” he said.

“We are currently all paying broadly the same price but we could be moving away from that and there will be some new features in the market which may see some choose to pay for a higher level of reliability. One house may be sitting with their lights on, charging their Tesla electric car, while the people next door will be sitting in the dark.”

The Telegraph reports that he laid the blame for this looming crisis on renewable energy.

“The system we are all familiar with has some redundancy built into it,” he said. “It was pretty straightforward and there was a supply margin, but increasing intermittency from renewable energy is producing profound changes to this system.

This blog and our associates Boggart Abroard and The Daily Stirrer have reported many times on the ways in which, since our treasonous politicians signed us up to the European Union (EU)  emissions trading scheme – there has been  an increase in renewable energy – average energy prices have risen by 63 per cent,  because the clever ‘scientists’ who recommended wind and solar generators as replacements for coal, oil and gas overlooked the absofuckinglutely obvious, that the wind does not blow consistently as a suitable strength to turn wing turbines, and wherever you are on the planet, over the course of a year the sun is only above the horizon for on average twelve hours a day.

Muslim Leaders Call For Halal Alternative to Peppa Pig

Breitbart London

Islamic leaders in Australia are urging parents to help raise funds for a company which wants to make a series of “halal cartoons” as an alternative to Peppa Pig, telling followers that Allah will reward them if they do.

The Australian National Imams Council (ANIC) posted a video to its Facebook page urging parents to donate to production company One4Kids, which makes Islamic themed children’s programmes, to fund a cartoon titled Barakah Hills, pitched as a “halal” alternative to popular pre-school show Peppa Pig.

Aiming to raise AUD$20,000 (£12,000), the company said the show’s “main objective is to show children what it is like to be a practising Muslim as well as a good citizen in their community”. The cartoon is set in a predominantly Muslim town, the BBC has reported.

One4Kids producer Subhi Alshaik told the BBC he enjoyed Peppa Pig but that “apparently there are messages in there that turn kids into brats”. More >>>

With Assad On Verge Of Historic Victory, Syrian Rebels Request A Ceasefire

by Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge

After nearly six years, Syria’s civil war started under Hillary Clinton’s watch in March 2011 during the Arab Spring protest, is finally coming to an end.

The battle for one of the most contested Syrian cities during the war, Aleppo – which was Syria’s most populous city before the war – is almost over and the “rebel forces” who live in the city eastern part, realizing they are on the verge of losing, have finally come to the negotiating table but it is too late.

Recall that as we reported last week, the Syrian army had recaptured as much as as 40% of the militant held part of the city in an accelerating attack that threatens to crush the opposition in its most important urban stronghold. As of today, that number has nearly doubled. According to the Russian Reconciliation Center which is facilitating and overseeing the Syrian civil war, government forces have liberated 15 more eastern Aleppo neighborhoods in the last 24 hours, adding that the advance has allowed the Syrian Army to evacuate 1,200 residents of the city.  The Syrian authorities now “fully control 50 neighborhoods in the eastern part of [Aleppo] that account for 70 percent of the territory that was initially controlled by the militants.” More >>>

600 ‘Underage’ Migrants Turn Out to Be Adults

from Jyllands Posten (Danish Language source)

The Danish government has confirmed the suspicions of manny opponents of its open doors immigration policy that of the suspected 800 “underage” asylum seekers they believed to be lying about their age, 600 of them were adults according to medical tests.

Staff of The Danish Immigration Service (Udlændingestyrelsen – DIS) suspected hundreds of “underage” migrants who have entered the country over the past year lied about about their age in order to get preferential treatment and fast tracking of their applications for refugee status from the Danish government.

The DIS was authorised to use medical tests to assert the real age of those suspected of lying after the government yielded to public pressure and have now admitted that at least 600, or three quarters of the child migrants, were in fact adults, according to  Jyllands-Posten

Doctors at the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Copenhagen were tasked by the DIS to find out the true age of those suspected of being adults, using X-rays of finger bones and dental imprints. The 800 tested by the institute is double that of last year, with authorities projecting that the number could increase to over 1,000 by the end of this year.

Integration Minister Inger Støjberg defended the results saying that the Danish asylum system is working properly when it is able to out migrants trying to get special benefits by lying about their age. More >>>

Millions Of Jobs Will Be Wiped Out By Machines In The Next Five Years

by Mac Slavo, SHTF

20161207_robots

There is a paradigm shift coming and it is about to rewrite everything we know about economics, human labor, and government dependence.

Earlier this week Amazon launched its first Amazon Go store, which allows a customer to walk in, grab the items they want, and simply walk out. Everything is tracked utilizing RFID chips, so the second you step out of the store Amazon knows exactly what you’ve purchased and automatically charges your account:

Amazon Go is a system that marries physical stores with advanced algorithms and sensors to eliminate the need for a typical store checkout. Instead of packing all the things you need into a basket or cart and then dragged it through a tedious checkout process, you just grab whatever you need and walk out of the store.

It sounds like a shaky concept at first, but only until you see just how advanced the technology really is. When you first walk into the store, you use your smartphone to open you virtual shopping cart. As you make your way around the store, a vast system of sensor tracks where you are, what you pick up, and what you take with you. The system even knows if you pick something up and then put it back, and will only charge you for things you actually intended to buy.

Amazon’s latest move is simply the next evolution designed to make human labor obsolete.

As Mike Shedlock recently pointed out at Mish Talk, the transition to automated systems like Amazon Go, as well as technologies like self-driving cars and long-haul trucks, has been fast tracked.

We’re no longer talking decades, but rather, a few years before we start to see the direct effects on the labor market: More >>>

EU Bureaucrats overturn WHO advice on Monsanto Glyphosate

December 7, 2015

The bureaucrats of the European Union have, in the face of massive public opposition, been determined to do a crooked deal that will let them get their sticky fingers on Monsanto’s slush fund money in return for overriding the democratic process and ignoring the public interest for the sake of corporate profits by foisting GM foods into our diets..

Sounds about right for the neo Nazi shits in Brussels, you might be thinking. here’s the story.

Monsanto and the pesticide industry breathed a collective sigh of relief on 12 November 2015. The findings of an investigation into the toxicity of glyphosate by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and EU Member States were in stark contradiction to the March 2015 conclusion by the International Agency for Research against Cancer (IARC), a body of the World Health Organization (WHO), that this agricultural herbicide was probably causing cancer to humans. If validated, this conclusion could cause a partial ban of glyphosate in the EU.

This article takes a closer look at the arguments from both parties, and reveals two strikingly different processes that led to these conflicting assessments. In short, the WHO process was transparent, stuck to conventional scientific methodology and looked at glyphosate-containing herbicides (as glyphosate is never used alone in the real world), whereas EFSA’s route was based on a ‘peer review’ by anonymous EFSA and national public officials relying on undisclosed industry-sponsored studies that looked at glyphosate alone. The European Commission, which will have the last say on whether or not glyphosate will be re-authorized in the EU, and under which conditions, must now decide what to make of this interesting piece of ‘science’.

On 12 November 2015, following a long saga (see our previous article), unnamed officials from EFSA and experts from EU Member States published the outcome of their joint re-assessment of the toxicity of glyphosate, the most widely used herbicide in the world. More commonly known as ‘Roundup’, which is the original Monsanto trade name, it is applied to more than 150 food and non-food crops 1 and is used by millions of home-owners, businesses and public authorities to keep lawns, gardens, buildings and other land free of weeds. Glyphosate is also a cornerstone of GM crop cultivation. According to GM proponents, 57 per cent of all genetically modified crops grown commercially around the world in 2013 were herbicide tolerant, and the vast majority of these were engineered to tolerate glyphosate-based herbicides. This simplifies their cultivation in large-scale, socially and environmentally harmful monoculture plantations, also known as ‘green deserts‘.2

New GMO ‘gene drive’ technology could be used to unleash the world’s most devastating biological weapon


We told you that push to make all our food crops Genetically Modified was much more sinister than feeding the world’s poor at the expense of ordinary people in developed nations. Now the real agenda is starting to be revealed.

With public opinion and a significant (but ignored by mainstream media strongly opposed to the introduction of Genetically Modified foods one would think that politicians, having lost the trust of voters, might hold back on this one. But no, as usual they are sidelining the public interest and ignoring public opinion in order to push the interests of the corporate cronies.

 

Why Do Government Information Technology Projects always Screw Up?

September 28, 2014

Because Everything Governmrent Touches Becomes Political, that’s why. While scientists burble excitedly about the internet of things, computer-brain interfaces that will enable the government to control us from data centres, creating human / computers hybrids and other science fantasy rubbish as if any of it stands a chance of becoming reality, government Information Technology managers, with almost unlimited resources at their disposal, can’t even manage to cobble together a simple database and search routine. The failure of the e borders project is the latest in a long line of screw ups.

Warmageddonist Intolerance Increases As The ‘Science’ Their Case Was built On Collapses

June 16, 2014

This publication has always denounced the scaremongering that surrounds the climate issue and the blatant lies being told by scientists and politicians. Even thoght the global mean temperature has not risen for hearly twenty years, climate scientists and green activists claim rate of increase is accelerating, catastrophe is almost upon us and huge tax increases are required. It’s all bollocks of course, but that does not stop the witch hunts.

The latest installment of the medieval bloodsport saw a Dr. Rossiter, a man of undoubted liberal tendencies summarily sacked and humiliated for going ‘off message’.

Malaysia Airlines flight 370 Flown To Diego Garcia?

March 19, 2014

The days go by and there is still not sign of the mission Boeing 777 aircraft, Malaysia Airlines flight 370 which went disappeared without trace, along with all 200 plus passengers and the crew on a commercial flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing ten days ago. Mainstream news is offering only diversions and misdirections, but in the linked post the Daily Stirrer is making a logical examination of the serious possibilities and at the same time cutting through the bullshit and demolishing the lies, deceptions and misinformation contained in official propaganda about the search for the missing aircraft and its passengers.

CO2 Scaremongering Hides The Facts – We Need More Not Less

November 5, 2011

Warmageddonists are always whining about how raised levels of CO2 (carbon dioxide) in air will destroy human society. It is very well known however that most animal life can happily breathe much higher concentrations, humans can survive with up to 7000 parts per million CO2 in the air they breathe. Another fear is failure of food supplies. But others argue raising CO2 levels would nullify the case for another science sacred cow GM food crops. So who is right?

Read the linked article at our mail site and learn how more CO2 in our air would increase crop yields producing more much needed food in ba time of exploding population.

Does anyone think pumping nanoparticles of sulphur compounds into the stratosphere to simulate a volcanic winter will really solve the problems caused by climate change.

Quite simply there are too many of us and we want too much. Who needs science or politics to understand that?
