Carbon-sheviks: EU wants local/regional soviets to enforce CO2 emissions limits

LocalGov reports:

The European Union’s (EU) Committee of the Regions said delivering climate change targets was ‘simply unattainable without local and regional authorities’.

Committee members backed the EU’s position to find an international agreement by 2015 that limited global warming below two degrees.

Manchester city councillor and committee member Neil Swannick said: ‘Cities and regions are on the frontline when it comes to responding to extreme weather events and climate change.

‘Only by harnessing all our efforts at local, regional, national and EU level can we hope to achieve the changes needed.

‘The allocation of 20% of the EU budget for climate-related spending must be taken up by regional and local authorities for local action to underpin the hoped-for global agreement in Paris in 2015.’

  1. It seems like they are meeting their goal of keeping the earth under 2 degC of warming with no effort whatsoever. Why harass local governments to waste their money on an effort that already seems won?

  2. This sounds like the socialist mayors trying to expand their powers by using the CO2 bludgeon. Cities run by socialists are shitholes across the EU, as you would expect, all Detroits in the making but with more Mosques. Basically no-go areas. This will go nowhere fast. Won’t stop them from trying again, and again, and again…

    Thank you for information about EU’s latest efforts to rule by committee.

    The first nuclear geo-scientist to visit the ruins of Hiroshima in Aug 1945, Professor P.K. Kuroda, launched me on a journey to the core of the Sun in 1960. He never told me where I was headed or what I would find.

    From his writings, those of Fred Hoyle, George Orwell, Robert Jungk, David (?) a reporter for the Atlantic Constitution and my own career, I suspect these historical events guided mankind from the horrors of 1945 to those engulfing the globe today.

    1. Aston had already warned in the 1920s that release of energy from cores of heavy atoms might ignite fusion of light elements in the Earth’s atmosphere.

    2. Four atomic bombs exploded over a one month period in the late summer of 1945:

    _a.) July 16 in New Mexico
    _b.) Aug 06 Hiroshima
    _c.) Aug 09 Nagasaki Japan
    _d.) Aug 12 Konan, Korea

    3. Earth’s atmosphere did not ignite. Russian troops captured Japan’s A-bomb facility at Konan, and shot down an American plane trying to obtain information. The American crew were held captive and perhaps used as pawns in negotiations.

    4. Without telling the public about the fourth atomic bomb, and with limited information about its nature, the United Nations was formed on Oct 24, 1945 to protect world leaders and society from extinction by nuclear annihilation and ignition of Earth’s atmosphere.

    5. Two empirical facts were hidden after 1945: Neutron repulsion causes
    _ a.) A-bombs to explode
    _ b.) Stars to make hydrogen

    6. Fusion H-bombs with fission cores were developed in the early 1950s.

    7. The USSR launched Sputnik in 1957, preparing to take control.

    8. Joseph Kennedy spent a fortune to get his son elected in 1960 to keep Richard Nixon out of office and to end USSR’s domination of space.

    9. John Kennedy established the Apollo Mission to end domination of space by the USSR. The Cold War almost erupted.

    10. Kennedy was killed in office in 1963 after the Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

    11. Richard Nixon assumed office in 1972, ended the Apollo program, and returned this country to its 24 Oct 1945 destiny under the United Nations

    12. Tearing down the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the USSR was perhaps a Hollywood production featuring one of its greatest actors, Ronald Reagan?

    13. In ~1990 the current AGW scare began in earnest and Russia resumed its dominance of space.
