Scarier Than Halloween



Hello - good to see you

The Stern report is out - and we had better take heed. Anyone who is concerned about climate change, saving money in their home, worried about the developing nations, the industrial growth in China and India, the US Government's deplorable attitude to energy emissions should read the findings and forecasts.

The BBC's Business Editor has provided a concise summary of the report - the findings are stark if we dont act now.

Interestingly Mr Miliband is quoted as part of the article as saying "For 150 years we have pumped carbon into the atmosphere - whether through energy or transport - as if it had no price" - mmm well Mr M, do something about it then like move EEC3 forward to next year rather than 2008 and stop letting the energy suppliers carry over excess measures just increase the targets as they are obviously too low.

On another salient point, the Partnership For Renewable £10 million fund of "new" money for renewable initiatives for public buildings - it turns out the funding isnt "new" at all !

The funding will be taken from a measures like insulation and double glazing under the EEC programme. So its not a new pot of money at all - its merely redirecting funding that will have to go back into energy efficiency anyway under the "additionality" rules of EEC.

But the Lib Dems and the Energy Saving Trust say money from insulation and double-glazing schemes will pay for it.

The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said the sum was never allocated to a specific project.

At the Labour conference, Environment Secretary David Miliband promised £10m to help fund projects such as wind power.

Mr Miliband said similar schemes on local authority land were being held back, because public and private investors were not working together.

This is outrageous. Both energy efficiency and greater use of renewables are crucial to combating climate change

But a spokesman for the government-funded Energy Saving Trust said it was disappointed to discover it was not an extra £10m, but part of money already announced in the budget.

"On three separate occasions, the government outlined that the £20m would be spent on energy efficiency programmes directed at the home owner," he said.

"But it would appear that £10m of it is now being reallocated to the Partnership for Renewables."

'Effective hierarchy'

He added: "Whilst we recognise that local authorities have a potential role in promoting large renewable energy, it is proven that the biggest impact they can have is through promoting energy efficiency in the home.

"This is the most effective hierarchy. Make homes energy efficient first and then look to renewable energy."

BBC environment correspondent Sarah Mukherjee said industry experts had gone even further in their criticism of the cuts.

They claim there is little point putting wind farms up in hospitals when they are providing energy that will be wasted in badly-insulated buildings, our correspondent said.

Liberal Democrat energy spokesman David Howarth accused the government of "robbing Peter to pay Paul".

He added: "This is outrageous. Both energy efficiency and greater use of renewables are crucial to combating climate change."

A Defra spokeswoman said the money had not previously been allocated to any specific scheme.

She added: "Energy efficiency is an integral element of the UK's strong domestic programme to tackle climate change.

"Around 10 million British households have benefited from energy saving measures as part of the first phase of the Energy Efficiency Commitment, which will help to reduce fuel bills."

But I think her argument is very weak.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
