Dillbert has long been a favourite of mine. That's because I've been an engineer
ever since I was a child.

The truth is a jest these days.

Here is an interesting article,

Sitting in the Dark
Forget the World's Fair, we now have a new way to celebrate human accomplishment. Instead of going to see a vision of the future, we turn off the lights and sit in the dark for an hour. Earth Hour shows how far we have come from celebrating human accomplishment to celebrating the lack of accomplishment. For all its pretentious activism, environmentalism is a movement that promotes inaction. Don't build, don't create and don't do-- are its commandments. Turn off the lights and feel good about how much you aren't doing right now. Slacker morality at its best.

While we take the electric light for granted-- to be able to read and write after dark by a clear light is a technological achievement that has transformed our civilization. Animals are governed by day and night cycles. Artificial light made it possible for us to work independently of the day and night cycle. There is no way to measure the increase in knowledge gained. And there is no better measure of the unthinking contempt of the environmentalist movement for that achievement than a call to turn off the lights and sit in the dark........

La di dah and how to dress up the phrase; 'robbing the poor bloody taxpayer'.......

"But a number of barriers, notably insufficient capacity in the debt capital markets, perceived risk around policy support frameworks, risk around the new technologies being rolled out and difficulties with financing large numbers of smaller projects, have together made financing low carbon infrastructure at the scale and speed required to meet the UK's carbon targets unachievable without scaled up Government intervention."

Highlighting courtesy of yours truly.

What a set of puke inducing blood sucking fops they all are.
Rubbing their grubby little hands together it's money for old rope, the conversation must go something like this;

"Champagne all round lads!"
"But who's paying?"
Loud raucous laughter and clinking of glasses;
"Cheers George!"

Blame Lucas's Green lobbyists and the hand [behind the scenes] of the EU too - after all it is the EU and it's setting of loony CO2 emissions targets - which is the basis of this farcical policy direction.

Aye and think on this.

If Britain were an independent nation, responsible for it's own destiny...... would we be even considering this utter nonsense? A total waste of [our!] money [Green investment bank] to alleviate a fantasy [AGW] born out of politcal machination, of which there is no proof, despite the billions being spent on researching 'the holy grail' - how can you prove aught [more especially] a linear postulation and it's relationship with and in a chaotic system?

This what being enslaved within the EU is all about - trying to sell to you all the fresh air you will need, with a surcharge for your dangerous CO2 exhalations.

When truth sounds like a joke and reality looks like a satire, the situation is serious indeed.

Clicking on the cartoon takes you to Mr Adams site, if you browse through the comments for this cartoon there is a link to a very nice article written by Mr Adams about his attempt to make a 'green' home. Highly recommended.

Use this link to get straight to Adams' article - http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... 23744.html Very to-the-point and a favourite and apt comment he makes is thus:

"I prefer a more pragmatic definition of green. I think of it as living the life you want, with as much Earth-wise efficiency as your time and budget reasonably allow."
