All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

“Climate is and always has been variable. The only constant about climate is change; it changes continually.” ~Professor Tim Patterson

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Irrational to use expensive forms of energy


An opinion piece by Party Member John Rodda

Anyone who wants to install a solar hot water heater because it saves money, should be free to do so. Likewise, anyone who wants to grow tomatoes in their back yard to save money should be free to do so, and anyone who wants to take up knitting to save money should be free to do so ...



However, I cannot see why a government should subsidize any of these activities, nor why we, or any government, should encourage them. They are none of our business as a political party.



One hears, "well, we're going to run out of coal and oil one day, so we might as well start winding them back and replacing them now", but one doesn't hear, "well we're going to run out of iron and aluminium ores one day, so we might as well start winding them back and replacing them now". Why not?



Because it's part of the greenies' attack on energy. Energy is life; life is energy. The difference between a corpse and a living person is simply energy or the lack of it. The greenies' attack on energy is an attack on life, and we must not let ourselves be sidetracked into accepting any of their propaganda. The greenies are afraid of life and all its uncertainties and vicissitudes, and want to control it. They want to control the climate and they want to control us..



We have huge reserves of oil, coal, and gas, and new reserves are being discovered all the time. In due course, it we do get close to running out of them, we still have that inexhaustable resource, human ingenuity, and, as long as we are free to use it, other forms of energy will then be developed in response. There is absolutely no need to force them onto people at great cost, as is being done now.



It is irrational to use expensive forms of energy when cheaper forms are available. Our policies are based on rational analysis.


Cheers


John R
