The above picture shows one of the real victims of Copenhagen’s warmists. Today as we in Britain a facing at least a few days of very cold weather, please thing about the elderly poor. Old people feel the cold far more than the young and this weather will see many of them miserable and cold sat huddled in front of a small radiator, hands clasping a hot drink and wearing their outdoor clothes indoors.
These are the people who cannot afford to pay the price of the warmists obsession with CO2. Here are some figures from the Royal Academy of Engineering regarding the costs of generating electricity:
New build nuclear: 2.3 pence per kilowatt hour
Coal fired (pulverised fuel): 2.5 pence per kilowatt hour
Onshore wind farm (without standby power): 3.7 pence per kilowatt hour
Onshore wind farm (with standby power): 5.4 pence per kilowatt hour
Offshore wind farm (without standby power): 5.5 pence per kilowatt hour
Offshore wind farm (with standby power): 7.2 pence per kilowatt hour
Since our delusional Environment Minister Ed Miliband wants to see most of the new wind turbines to be offshore these poor people will see the electricity bills more than double! This is mean. This is cruel. When set against the backdrop of the monstrous scam that is the warmist bandwagon, it is positively obscene.
These old folk include the World War two generation, now in the eighties and nineties. These people stopped Hitler. Now a collection of fraudulent Quislings are going to make their final days ones of worry and cold.
Miliband and his ilk are beneath contempt.
