De ekonomiska realiteterna av Global Warming Hysterin

Nu, när de ekonomiska realiteterna av Global Warming Hysterin och de åtgärder som beslutas börjar gå upp för folk så växer protesterna. Den franske presidenten Sarkozy gör det, den tyske miljöministern Sigmar Gabriel gör det och hans kollega, den tyske näringslivs ministern Michael Glos gör det.

De protesterar alla mot de orimliga kostnaderna och att dessa åtgärder kommer att straffa den europeiska industrin som kommer att tvingas flytta utanför EU.

Och det är klar, med straffavgifter på mellan 125 000 000 000 kr till 39 000 000 000 kr bara på bilindustrin, 50 000 jobb i fara bara inom stålindustrin etc. så finns det skäl för Europas ledare att vara oroade för den industriella överlevnaden i den här delen av världen.

I USA så pratar olje- och gas industrin om kostnader på ”trillions of dollars” som behöver investeras för att möta dessa nya krav.

Även om bara en bråkdel av dessa kostnader blir verkliga så är dessa kostnader ändå gigantiska. Det handlar om ett enormt och felinriktat resursslöseri. Och allt detta för att lösa ett problem som inte finns.

Så istället för att använda dessa enorma summor till att lösa problem här och nu i världen så använder man dessa pengar till åtgärder som KANSKE löser ett ”problem” som KANSKE inträffar om 100 år.

Är inte dessa ”consensus” politiker och s.k. vetenskapsmän fantastiska! Ja de är fantastiska på att slösa enorma summor av våra pengar på helt meningslösa saker.

Några citat:

”Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president, has weighed into the controversy over the European Union’s climate change plans with an attack on some proposals as ”neither efficient, fair nor economically sustainable”.

”Just six months before France takes up the EU presidency, Mr Sarkozy has written to Commission president José Manuel Barroso to set out his objections to the plan for reducing carbon emissions to be published later this month.

In the letter seen by the Financial Times, Mr Sarkozy stresses his support for a system to cut carbon emissions and promote the development of renewable energy.

However, he warns that, as currently structured, the proposals could unfairly penalise France and would pose a real threat to European industry, which would be forced to move to countries where regulations were less restrictive and costly.

The car industry alone faces potential fines of between €4bn ($5.9bn, £3bn) and €13bn if it does not meet strict criteria for cutting carbon, according to commission documents.”

”BERLIN (Thomson Financial) – Germany warned Thursday that a European Commission plan to auction pollution rights threatened key sectors of German and European industry.

Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel presented a five-point critique of the Commission’s plan to set specific targets for EU countries in order to cut carbon dioxide emission levels so that by 2020 they are 20 percent lower than in 1990.

Gabriel targeted a plan by European Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas to auction emissions permits that are currently distributed free up to certain levels, beyond which companies must pay.

Because the present limits are generous, such excess payments have been rare, resulting in thin trading of CO2 emission credits on Europe’s carbon trading market. Prices there have remained below a level that would encourage investment in cleaner technologies.

‘The European Union cannot ignore the question of how to preserve the international competitiveness of industries that consume lots of energy,’ such as cement, steel and chemicals, all key sectors of the Germany economy, Gabriel told German deputies.

Sectors ‘which have reached their average for reductions of carbon dioxide emissions must be able to obtain free emission rights to be able to remain in Europe,’ he added.

Many European industries could be forced to relocate elsewhere in order to maintain competitive prices on international markets.

German Economy Minister Michael Glos has also criticized the plan to auction emission rights, which is contained in a series of measures to be unveiled by the EU commission on January 23.

‘We are doing a disservice to the global climate issue if, by increasing our production prices, we trigger relocations of sites and jobs to countries that are not subjected to climate protection regulations,’ Glos said in a letter to commission vice-president Guenter Verheugen, quoted Wednesday by business daily Handelsblatt.

For Germany — which has a target of 40 percent reductions by 2020 — to remain the biggest EU contributor to emission reductions, the commission must take economic conditions into account, Gabriel said.

Moreover, respect for economic performance is crucial to convince other industrialised countries and emerging economies to participate in a global climate protection agreement that was sketched out in December at a conference in Bali, Indonesia, he added.”

The German steel industry warned Thursday of huge job losses if the European Commission went ahead with a new emissions trading scheme in its climate protection drive.

”If by 2020 all emission rights must be bought at auction, at least 50,000 jobs in the German steel industry are in danger,” the head of the industry foundation, Dieter Ameling, told the conservative daily Die Welt in an interview to be published Thursday.

Currently European companies receive free certificates that cover a large share of their carbon dioxide emissions.

The European Commission plans a new emissions trading system as part of the bloc’s commitment to cut greenhouse gases by 20 percent by 2020.

By that date, all free emissions certificates will be phased out, according to plans that are to be officially presented next Wednesday in Brussels.

”The EU programme would make German and European manufacturers the clear losers in the global steel industry,” he said. ”If the law on certificate trading for carbon dioxide emissions is introduced as planned by Brussels, no steel manufacturer will invest in Europe.”

The German steel industry calls for a system in which emissions averages are set by sector-by-sector.

”Those that do better than the average can sell their carbon dioxide certificates and those that are worse must buy them,” he said.

EU Industry Commissioner Guenter Verheugen, a German, called in November for special treatment for Europe‘s energy-guzzling core sectors over their carbon dioxide emissions to protect their competitiveness.

He said the ”special treatment” should apply to the aluminium, cement, paper pulp and base chemical industries and, perhaps, steel.”

”WASHINGTON – Energy industry officials on Wednesday said the biggest near-term obstacle to a federal climate-change bill is the huge sum _ trillions of dollars, by their estimates _ that will need to be invested to reduce the country’s emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

Neither consumers nor Congress fully grasp the financial or technical challenges posed by efforts to reduce carbon emissions, according to these officials _ who oppose climate-change bills that already have been proposed.”

  1. Facklig ledare Says:

    Varför har ledande svenska fackföreningar inte tagit upp en debatt om miljöfrågorna och bl.a. deras ekonomiska konsekvenser?

    I det svenska samhället förekommer ingen som helst synlig debatt i media eller TV om CO2-frågornas inverkan på ekonomi och arbete. Det som sammanställts i detta blogginlägg om

    ”De ekonomiska realiteterna av Global Warming Hysterin”

    borde ju kunna skrämma vettet av vilken svenska facklig representant som helst för att inte tala om riksdagspartiernas företrädare.

    Vad håller regeringsalliansen och oppositionen på med? Varför mörkar man konsekvenserna som franska och tyska politiska ledare tar upp? Varför? EU kan väl inte tvinga Sverige till ekonomisk och social undergång genom orealistiska krav?

    Tidningarna hos oss är fyllda av spaltmeter efter spaltmeter med debatter om till exempel en Battlegrupps vara eller inte vara eller homosexuellas rätt att gifta sig men inte ett ord om miljöfrågorna och hur de kommer att påverka svensk ekonomi och arbetsmarknaden.

    Jag har hittills inte intresserat mig särskilt mycket för miljöfrågorna men nu när jag ser konsekvenserna måste jag alarmera facket och kommer att göra det internt redan idag.
