A few sites I've stumbled across recently....
My neighbour gets Farmers Weekly and in the April 3rd edition is a story about solar farms in the south west. It seems that there is no capacity to connect the subsidy farmers to the grid:
Renewable energy development in the South West faces delays of three to six years due to new restrictions.Western Power Distribution (WPD) has called a halt to all new high-voltage grid connections, as a key route on the network has hit capacity.New renewables installations in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Bristol docks that want to export power to the grid will be affected.

Hi Mike J: I liked the Spiked article as well but the project in China to move water from the Chang in the south to the north reminded me of the doomed Aral Sea fiasco and the tragedy that exists there to this day. Let's hope the Chinese are better (real*) environmentalists.

The premiss is this: pretty soon the world will be unfit to live in, if you believe in climate change, as 97% of scientists do. We know this. So do the politicians. Yet, we're at an impasse.
Lord Beaverbrook: aaaaaaAARGH! We HAVE to get out of Europe! Kind sir, good lord, please, please – you will have more contacts than I, and will have a greater influence over them – please, please, please persuade them to vote UKIP on 7th May. If not UKIP, then ANYTHING other than the LibLabCon group – even the Monster Raving Loonies have more sense than any of those three!
Mike Jackson Thanks for the Spiked link, nice article.
And it must be silly season:
British organic farmers are being forced to treat their livestock with homeopathic remedies under new European Commission rules branded ‘scientifically illiterate’ by vets.
Re previous comment about James Murray: See his crap here.
Bish: You have got to see Guido's piece about "weaponising climate change":
Business Green’s James Murray has solved the Med migrant crisis. Sorry Ed, it isn’t the PM who is to blame. No, apparently the capsising boats are a “climate crisis.”
I do like spiked!
It's been well trailed that the Pope is going to contribute to the debate on climate change.The Pontifical Academy of Sciences is holding a meeting in the Vatican next Tuesday. The Heartland Institute has organised a rival do across the road - and a counter-website - see https://www.heartland.org/Vatican-Environment-Workshop. Co-religionists - and others who think that anything the Pope says will be accorded weight, however unreasonably - may like to email the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, at email@example.com.
