    Default It is Climate Week

    Here is your opportunity to ask the Government to do more about climate Change.

    Subscribe to a renewable energy provider.

    Join a supporting organisation

    Start an event going

    Be a part of real change at the local level for the benefit of the fragile planet that we live upon.

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    When you subscribe to a renewable energy provider, does that mean that you specifically agree to make your own personal sacrifice for climate change and pay the full cost of that energy including the cost of ROCs or FiTs in your own bill or does it just mean that you have been conned into believing that it is possible to only buy renewable energy and that you are happy to continue using the same proportion of fossil and nuclear energy as everyone else does?
    Climate week sounds like a scam to make money for Renewables generators.

    Who cares what you think? Go ask the renewable energy provider.

    Ha that is rich coming from you you never answer a question or acknowledge anything that is a credit to wind energy.

    You are only against wind to get money out of action groups and expenses for going to meetings up and down the country. Your business is making money out of objecting to wind farms.

    This thread is about Climate Week and not about what you think about scams and such like. Climate week is supported by the Ramblers Association, that well known pro-wind group.

    Aye well i followed the links through to the electricity providers page and worked out that they can save me a whopping 56 on my electricity and 47 on my gas in a year. Not bad at all, thats 1.98 a week more in my pocket....but they say for every customer signing up, they will - quote "For every household that switches, Ecotricity gives up to 50 to the Climate Week campaign." So that got me thinking..... where does this fifty knicker come from then? then the penny drops! The mugs that switch to this service are the ones paying the "up to 50" and then you realise....wait a minute! how come Ecotricity can sell me gas and electric at a lower price than the big six can? then the penny dropped again!...the more customers than sign up for this service, the more wind farms they can build with the income! Well i'm all for green renewable energy but not at the expense of covering my country with the abominable windfarms. There's enough wind farms around here thank you!

    I'll try asking the question again, but in a simpler multiple choice format.

    "When you subscribe to a renewable energy provider, does that mean that you specifically agree to make your own personal sacrifice for climate change and pay the full cost of that energy including the cost of ROCs or FiTs in your own bill?"

    A. Yes
    B. No

    That narrows it down to 25% of the population worrying part is do you normally jingle in public ?

    I see I am going to have to answer this myself.

    The answer is NO. Once electricity has been generated and fed into the grid it is impossible to say where it is used. Any organisation which claims to sell only renewable generated electricity is lying. The electricity it sells is the same mix as the electricity sold by all suppliers. Promotion of the sale of grid transported electricity on the basis that it is generated by renewables is therefore deceitful. Promotion of the interests of such organisations knowing that this is the case is...............what? ......... What would you call it?

    This is an old article from the daily mail.
    I've not looked at the sources of the article but there maybe a little of the truth in there.

    No it is perfectly true. Lakes of toxic waste.
