    What most people fail to understand is the 'Vested interest' people who are interested in what they may earn from it, not if it will save the planet.


    We are all being taken for mugs by the 'Climate Experts' most of whom have something to gain from it all.

    Oz is a very good example of that, a gov claiming to fix the problem but at the same time making surer our exports of coal, gas and LPG continue at record levels.

    But then again, UK has just announced a new coal mine in Cumbria, first for over 30 years.
    Are they interested in the climate, yes the economic one.

    A USA geophysicist spoke last week about all the hype going on with the 'Climate' claims.
    As he said 'Tell the people the truth and maybe you will gain some trust'

    Look at the current situation, there are three of the worlds largest volcanos all spewing their guts out, one crazy climatologist here claimed this is caused by climate change??????

    Claim by our gov 50% of all vehicle here to be electric by 2030!!
    In their dreams, most will not be able to afford them, and supply chain problems currently see waits of up to 12 months for any new vehicle, with as many as three price increases in that time.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    John it could be argued that opening the new coal mine will off set the carbon foot print of importing coal.UK coal imports come (or did) from Russia , USA & Australia. This is an argurment that has been going on for several years now. The original arguement was the coal to be mined was to make coking coal for steel production. The amount of steel the UK produces these days all they would need to decide is do they need one lump or two.

    According to a report in the Telegraph on Saturday, the country is considering emergency measures in case of an electricity supply shortage this winter.
    Switzerland ó the best country in the world according to a recent analysis from US News & World Report ó could shorten store operating hours, lower the thermostats at buildings, and limit the private use of electric cars to ďabsolutely necessary journeys.Ē
    These proposed measures havenít been passed into law just yet. But they serve as a reminder that electricity doesnít magically appear at every wall outlet ó and EVs don't run on fairy dust.
    Despite the increasing focus on ESG investing, traditional energy is not dead. The Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE) ó which provides exposure to oil and gas companies ó is actually up 52% year to date.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Ah John dear old Switzerland not had a war since William Tell was a lad. Quite happy to allow every corrupt regime in the world to hoard stolen money and works of art in the Swiis banking system.

    But try and wash your car in Switzerland and you will soon find yourself getting a visit from the Police.

    Mind you the swiss are not the only ones in Europe or the world to have a dodgy banking system.

    The UK's financial sector and banks operate the second biggest money washing launderette in the world.

    As soon as you mentioned the Telegraph your post lost any credibility.
