Idiotic policies to ‘fight’ a non-existent problem?

Friday/Saturday blog

I really want to write about something else other than supposed ‘climate change’. But there’s so much stupidity going on, I can’t ignore it.

EU kills loads of starving Africans

When you fill up with petrol, you’ll probably notice that the fuel is called “E5”. That means it consists of 5% biofuel (ethanol) due to EU environmental regulations. When the EU first passed the regulation forcing all petrol sold in EU countries to contain 5% biofuels, the UN Special Rapporteur on Food said it was “a crime against humanity to divert arable land to the production of crops which are then burned for fuel”.

And he was right. Between 2015-2015 world food prices rose by over 140%. For us in the once wealthy West, that wasn’t a big problem. But if you’re trying to survive on less than $1.90 a day in the Democratic Republic of Wagabongo or some other hell-hole (while your rulers become billionaires by looting all the foreign aid that was intended to reach you), then a 140% rise in the price of food is a disaster. About 9 million people a year die from malnutrition and hunger-related diseases (including 3.1 million children – with one dying every 10 seconds). Even the Greenies at Greenpeace protested to the EU Commission. But they were ignored – once over-paid, over-pensioned useless politicians and bureaucrats make a mistake, however damaging, they are never going to admit they f**ked up.

Let’s kill lots more Africans

Undaunted by their catastrophic (for the world’s poor) imposition of supposedly environmentally-friendly E5 fuel, from September this year (again due to EU environmental regulations), governments in all EU countries and in the UK are changing the standard petrol that will be available from E5 to E10. Yup, you guessed it. E10 petrol contains 10% ethanol. Ethanol is added to reduce CO2 emissions and help tackle supposed ‘climate change’. The RAC has said the greener fuel could reduce CO2 emissions by 750,000 tonnes per year, the equivalent of taking up to 350,000 cars off the road.

‘So what’, you may think, ‘it’s just petrol’. Actually, you would be wrong. One problem with E10 is that it is less efficient than ordinary petrol. So, while each litre of E10 may have lower CO2 emissions than a litre of E5, you’ll get fewer miles per litre of E10 and so will end up using more petrol and actually producing higher CO2 emissions. Oooops! The Greenies forgot to tell us that.

Moreover, some parts of your car may be damaged over longer periods as a result of bioethanol’s corrosive properties. The RAC has also said there have been reports that E10 is a less stable fuel, which could make it more difficult to start a vehicle that has not been driven for an extended period.

Since 2011 all new cars sold in the UK have had to be E10 compatible. But there are an estimated 1 million cars – around 3% of all cars on UK roads which will be unable to use E10. Helpfully our Government has set up a website where you can check if your car can use the new E10 fuel

Meanwhile, lots more land will be changed from food production to biofuel production and world food prices will keep on rising. Not great news if you’re already close to starvation. But the well-fed Brussels eurocrats and bureaucrats don’t give a toss about the world’s starving millions. Just like our worthless Princess Nut Nut government, in Brussels they’re too busy dreaming up ever more destructive ways to save us all from the non-existent threat of climate change to wonder about whether black and brown lives matter.

Two great books to buy

My latest book – THERE IS NO CLIMATE CRISIS – costs about £7.40 in paperback. But Amazon only gives you free postage if you spend £10 or more on books. So, if you can be tempted into buying a copy of my book to help support this website, rather than wasting a few quid on postage, why not either buy two copies of my book (and give one away to some Greeny friend to really annoy them) or else buy one copy of my book and a copy of the new satirical novel – THE DENIAL – by journalist Ross Clark:

In THE DENIAL, Ross Clark imagines life in carbon-net-zero Britain. I won’t give the plot away, but it’s very imaginative, very funny and very poignant.

Get ready for climate lockdowns

In my last blog I warned about how our rulers would use their success in imposing Chinese Wuhan plague restrictions and lockdowns on us to start imposing new restrictions and lockdowns to supposedly save the planet.

A couple of days after I wrote my blog, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson warned of the same danger:

    Doesn’t the title of the blog sum up the history of humanity?

  • Almost all of our problems are fictional. The creations of the so-called liberal globalists designed to bring in global cultural-Marxist governance.

    In my opinion, it started big-time with 9/11 and the unnecessary wars that were designed to rope-a-dope, impoverish and weaken western governments and flood them with refugees and economic migrants.

    It went on to the banking crisis that was set going by the US federal Mortgage Corporations issuing sub-prime mortgages like confetti.

    Ever since the late 60s and 70s, feminism and equality has been used to attack the family itself and the male as the head of the family in particular.

    The mainstream media, which is mostly owned by the globalists, have slavishly pushed all of those agendas. Back in the 70s and 80s it was almost impossible to get a critique of feminism out in any form.

    Recently, attacks on sex and gender has been brought into the picture. Before its severe decline, the Church was attacking sex remorselessly as its main method of creating guilt and shame in order to put bums on pews and sell fake tickets to Heaven. Sex as Original Sin.

    Now transgenderism is taking over from where the Church left off.

    Stonewall appears to be on a disturbing mission to eliminate sex and gender in schools, and our children will be the ones who suffer under this extreme ideology.

    In the name of supporting “transgender children”, the controversial LGBTQ+ lobby group has told schools wanting to win its bronze, silver and gold awards that they should stop saying “boys and girls” but should say “learners” instead; they should remove all “unnecessarily gendered language” from their policies; and they should teach primary school children to use “they/them” as a pronoun.

    Uniform policies should “give the option to wear a skirt as well as the option to wear trousers”, guidance documents state. Schools should “avoid dividing learners by gender” in the classroom, in uniform code, in sports or in anything else; teachers should not use “boy, girl, boy, girl” when lining pupils up; and there should be no hint of “gendered language” when discussing hair, make-up and piercings.

    Any forms of criticism is labelled as a hate crime. All of this is the instinctive behavioural psychology of the nihilist decedents that used equality to come to power.

    Nietzsche warned that equality was going to carry the West off. As he said himself, you can express something as clearly as is possible and still have no one able to take it on board.

    Unfortunately for them, if Nietzsche is right, much perishing is going to take place and these decadents themselves will be included in it. At bottom, nihilists want to get rid of themselves and this is how the cowards go about achieving that.

    It’s an old story. If you can’t compete with your superior social orders as a group or class, do everything you can to bring them down to your level and then on to lower levels than yours.

    Christianity was evangelised by St Paul with the aim in mind of bringing the Roman Empire down in order to get the Romans out of Palestine. That was probably his conversion on the road to Damascus. He saw that, if evangelised throughout the Roman Empire, the Christian story could be turned into a powerful religion for the poor, ill-constituted and oppressed that could weaken it and bring it down. As it happened, shortly after the Emperor, Constantine, made Christianity the official religion of Rome, it was over.

    I have just heard Andrew Neil on GB News (Freeview 236) discussing a woke drive to make mathematics racist because black people are not good at it and it perpetuates capitalism. Physics is also under attack because the great physicist, Sir Isaac Newton, hogs too much of physics. He invented calculus that Einstein used to create the equations that form relativity.

    A student at Fieldston Upper in New York said: “We don’t call them Newton’s laws any more, we call them the three fundamental laws of physics. They say we need to ‘decenter whiteness’, and we need to acknowledge that there’s more than just Newton in physics.”

    Translation: there is never going to be great physicists who are black, so get rid of associating what whites have achieved in advancing physics, which is almost everything.

    Apparently the woke also want to re-name measurements used in physics, such as pascals, newtons, amperes, Kelvins, Celsius etc.

    They can never hope to compete with the greats of the past, so they reason that if we get rid of the racial associations of innovation and invention we will at least get rid of constantly being reminded of having achieved nothing ourselves.

    The feminists would have loved to have done likewise because almost all great leaders, innovators and inventors are men and most of them are white men. But they were not able to pull it off, so now playing the racist card is being tried.
