I know this is slightly off topic. Aquind, a power company owned by  Ukranian who has donated £1m+ to the Tories, is meeting resistance in Normandy and Portsmouth over its proposed cable under the sea.

 

They want it to run through populated areas and beauty spots.

 

WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM

Energy firm and director Alexander Temerko have given £1.1m between them to Conservatives

Not aware of the necessities of the routing, or the politics with France threatening to cut power supplies to the Uk,

but I'm aware of a lot of 'green' resistance to any tidal barrier generation and wind farms (for all sorts of environmental reasons) as well as nuclear ..

 

.. I assume they want to return to wood burners? - which are 5-20 times less environmentally 'friendly than gas fires ..

 

Its a difficult set of scenarios

 

Has the person in question also donated/bribed/whatever on the French side HB?

what are the calculated REAL benefits and route options anyone?

Well the regions at both ends have objected - as they would - everyones in favour until its their own backyard

.. and the company is mired in the Panama papers and populist cronyism - but many company directors are

 

..  but it does seem the cost/benefit case for the cable needs to be watertight and outstandingly credible IMO - and not like many of the nuclear proposals where the projected costs are astronomical, and the benefits very limited (as defined) and VERY far in the future

 

First port of call for me would be - is it cheaper than more local solar farms/wind farms (which would no doubtr also raise objections), and would building hydrogen generation/storage/power stations nearer existing wind farms be a better option?

.. and far more 'sovereign'

Interesting question about Temerko donating to Frech political parties, TJ.

 

The French press are aware of the UK donations but there's no mention of donations in France. Aquind seemes to be based in the UK so I don't know if it would be allowed.

The UK local communities/councils have already been trodden into the dust by the populists

Is it likely that the local communities and leaders will be over-ridden in France HB?

I don't know enough about planning type laws in France, sadly. Aquind have an appeal in the system but I can't remember who to offhand. I'm not sure national politicans are involved at the moment, it seems to be more the mayor.

Looks like Johnson the incompetent liar is trying to line up a few pledges kicked into the 2050 long grass in cop26 as a 'success'

 

Anything which isnt a solid and significant commitment for 2030 is not just a failure, its consigning the whole world to catastrophic climate change.

 

Those who have read and believe the claims that the UK being an island will be buffered better than most to the changes already occurring, are frankly stupid wishful thinkers

The only places likely to lose less are those where land and sea routes is being freed from the Ice - with Russia being the biggest beneficiary of that, and probably China. - although it may be many decades before the land is truely useful for other than more resource mining and military bases

I forget where I read it but someone has done projections of the UK's emissions if trade with the EU is replaced with longer routes to places like the anglosphere. It's logical. :classic_sad:

 

ETA: I'll have a look for the increased emissions figure, it was huge.

Yes, that ties up with all the big container ships now unloading at EU ports rather than UK ports which they used to unload at.

Devastating to a sea economy (UK)

 

A few tax haven free ports for the mega rich and criminals to hide their 'stuff' wont even dent the losses

This says it all. World leaders are flying to and from COP26.

 

Johnson's aide says it's lack of time but surely the PM could work on a train? It's not difficult.

I'd even be 'comfortable with that if they were making any real commitments, rather than rattling on about the 'improvements' they have made, ... which are actually mostly down to accounting practices claiming carbon 'offsets' that were already there or which aren't real offsets, and in reality just kicking any real action down the road to 2050 - actually beyond 2050

This sounds hopeful. Four countries in Latin America are joining together to make a huge marine protection area for migrating turtles, whales and sharks to protect them.

India has announced it aspires to carbon neutrality in about 50 years or so, presumably provided nothing happens in the next 50 years to change their minds, and provided something happens to actually deliver that (preferably with nothing required of the Indian government)

and provided they consider at the time that something mentioned generations before should be considered ..

... and of course - if there is still an 'India' in 50 years or so

 

Biden of course has come straight to COP from his efforts to get the oil producing countries to ... produce more oil to address the current 'shortages'

 

- Johnson demonstrably isnt the only tosspot there, although he's probably still the biggest (tosspot)

A number of governments have stated they aspire to reduce and maybe even turn around the deforestation of the planet, and maybe even start to turn it around a bit by 2030ish maybe

Its understood that hundreds of trees will be planted across the world to ensure this isnt an outright lie.

 

In the meantime, Johnson will be taking advantage of the reduction in Taxes on short flights and booze and will be flown back from COP in a private plane with a well stocked bar

A coalition of 18 countries, plus dozens of banks and other institutions, will pledge to phase out coal-fired power plants domestically and to end funding for international coal projects. The burning of coal is the single greatest contributor to climate change, and ending support for it has been a key focus at the U.N. climate change conference COP26.

 

The new campaign, which is expected to be announced by British officials today in Glasgow, declares that the end of coal “is in sight” because of the new coalition. The group will commit to ending all investment in new coal power generation domestically and internationally. The time frame was not specified.

You having a dig (sic) HB 😕

 

don't forget

New oil wells

Pollution of UK waters for profit undiminished

Green rather than brownfields used for propertied - because they will sell for more

Ancient woodlands demolished

reduction in taxes on short flights

Low welfare and environment foodstuffs transported 5000 miles to undercut high welfare local farming

Corruption rife protecting those that abuse for profit - and Water companies for example - not just MPs protecting other corrupt and abusive (IMO) MPs like Jenrick, Paterson, patel and and Robertson .. the list goes on

 

 

... pause for breath

 

 

 

and all the 'targets' or 'aspire-ations' for improvement kicked into the long grass with little defined to actually get to those targets
