Green support for wind but attack on fracking senseless
The Green Party is upping its charm offensive in the Westcountry what with it saying it is drawing a line as far as fracking is concerned and will not let the beautiful countryside be spoilt by this process which will according to them have devastating consequences to mankind.
It is also bizarre that they have suddenly appeared at St Denis to stop the incinerator being built and no doubt will put all their weight behind some sort of campaign.
It goes without saying that nobody in their right minds should be building old technology incinerators and clearly Cornwall council has stitched up the populace by allowing it to go ahead – but beware of looking for help from the greens as you may not get what you think. Okay you may get national press coverage but with its truck loads of professional protesters drafted in who will set up camp in your village and even get MP Caroline Lucas and her family down for the TV cameras plus of course plenty of riot police. Then you will exchange the incinerator for masses more wind and solar farms because the Green Party blindly supports them and do not see them as despoiling the country side but saving the planet. Of course most people now know that wind and solar cannot give us a secure energy supply or save the planet and therefore its ironic that Caroline Lucas and Molly Scott Cato are so against fracking but are blind to the turbines and solar panels that are covering the once beautiful Cornwall and Devon countryside.
Make no mistake back the greens and you will have more solar and wind whether you like it or not.

But Caroline and Molly must be in a bit of a quandary over the diesel generator "farms" that are being built for renewables backup. If they oppose them as not green (which they are not) then they condemn us to power outages and if the do not their green credentials will be under threat and it will be an admission of the failure of wind and solar to deliver.
