 ” …In keeping with President Obama’s promise to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet, the Energy Department has set new efficiency standards for 26 appliances and household products. The list ranges from microwaves, to washing machines and dryers, to residential water heaters and dishwashers.
The department reportedly claims the new standards will save consumers from $250 billion to $300 billion on their energy costs through 2030. But that’s what Democrats always say about their green schemes: “We’re doing this to clean up the Earth, and we’re going to save you money while we do it.”
Don’t believe it…. “

India Now Third In Prosperity

More GoodNews/BadNews
The good news is that India has overtaken Russia as the third largest consumer of fossil fuels as it lifts its people out of abject poverty and environmental degradation.

The bad news is that they are still intimidated by their colonial masters into paying lip service to the colonial greenie spiritual beliefs on “carbon”.

 Perhaps after a few more record cold years?

By the end of the century the Indians will debating what to do to help the poor-white-trash in europe!

Tianjin Who?

Tianjin was/is the venue of the latest UN climate talks – YAWN

 We used to get a big flurry of green leftist media activity everytime one of these came around – no longer.

Nobody cares – nobody listens – Cancun is the world’s biggest loser – the AUS ABC gives it a small mention out of habit (they think the “new paradigm” is actually going to do something – Ha Ha Ha!)

European Green Protectionism

Still thinking they are important, like the UK after WW2, the decadent Europeans are dressing up their protectionism as saving the planet.

Australia cares – we export for a living – nobody else does.
China, India, and Brazil are just too busy prospering amongst themselves to give a stuff!

” …Trade Minister Craig Emerson told Sky News’s Australian Agenda yesterday he was determined to resist Europe’s l protectionist sentiment disguised under a green cloak of respectability. He has committed to do whatever it takes under World Trade Organisation rules to work against the tactic, which should win him the support of free trade economists and lobbyists in many trading nations. International economic literature shows economists increasingly recognise that both European consumers and the workers of other trading nations, including developing nations, would be the losers if Europe’s newfound green protectionism is allowed to take hold…. “
