Gaaah! Why is that these Greens simply cannot understand the most basic points?
This massive under-utilisation of our green resources is also reflected in job figures. According to government-sponsored research, the UK has, at very best, 26,000 jobs in renewable energy. By contrast, Germany has 250,000 jobs.
With the right investment, the UK has the wind resources to be a European green industry leader. As well as reducing carbon emissions and increasing energy security, wind power also creates a large number of jobs per TWh unit.
While nuclear produces 75 jobs per TWh per year, oil and gas around 250 jobs, wind produces up to 2,400 jobs.
The government\’s own research shows that investing in wind could generate 43,000 new green jobs. This depends on developing turbine manufacturing in the UK. Without a major focus on developing that industry, these projections shrink to less than 7,000 jobs.
Creating jobs is a cost of your schemes you ignorant fool!
The more jobs you create the more it costs!
Fortunately the comments section seems to be well switched on to this point.
Which leads me to wonder a little….this whole CiF thing. Is it going to lead to the readers being brainwashed into leftiedom, as obviously the creators hope, or is it going to work the other way. Writers being exposed to cogent critiques of their world view (well, OK, sometimes) and thus abandoning their more crazed ideas?
Related in only the most tenuous manner….keep an eye open for Polly thinking that LVT might be a good idea. A little birdie tells me that someone has been dropping her ideas and clarifying the odd point or two.
