Please Sign & Support Our Petition: Let’s Scrap Expensive EU Renewable Energy Targets–GWPF

May 10, 2017

By Paul Homewood




The GWPF has launched an online petition to scrap EU Renewables Targets:


Dear friends and supporters
The Global Warming Policy Forum today has launched an online petition, calling on the next government to scrap the EU Renewable Energy Directive and halt the rising energy policy costs for households and the overall economy.
I would be grateful if you would sign our petition and circulate it widely among your MPs, friends, family and colleagues.
The cost of Britain’s unilateral renewable energy policies is running out of control, the inevitable result of replacing cheap and reliable energy with expensive, intermittent sources.
In 2016, the combined costs of the Levy Control Framework (LCF) and carbon taxes reached over £9 billion.
According to official figures, the Climate Change Act will cost the UK economy over £300 billion by 2030, costing each household £875 per annum.
The first priority of British energy policy should be to ensure cheap and reliable energy. 
Renewable energy levies have made this impossible by mandating the use of expensive and intermittent technologies. The consequence has been far too many Britons living in fuel poverty. 
As Britain leaves the EU it should abandon the Renewables Directive. This will boost consumer spending, reduce fuel poverty and revitalise the British economy.

Please sign our petition to the next UK Parliament

Scrap expensive EU renewable energy targets

The more support we can get, the better the chances of reforming UK energy policy and reducing fuel poverty in coming years.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continuing support of the GWPF and our efforts to restore rational climate and energy debates.


The petition is here. Please sign and circulate to friends.

    5 minutes to reduce fuel poverty, reinvigorate UK manufacturing and save the NHS … not a bad investment of your time!

    Going up nicely towards its first target of 500. Can we get Booker involved?

    I’ve forwarded it to my MP as well- Anne Marie Morris MP – Teignbridge, though I guess this will be ignored as the house is no longer sitting.

    I got a response from Anne Marie Morris’s office:
    Hi Mark
    I think renewables do have a place in our energy strategy and we have done well getting where we have got to. The challenge has always been the switching cost between renewable and carbon based energy and the lack of technology to store excess renewable energy created. Both these technical issues are being addressed. We will always need some carbon based energy but let’s keep our options open to all forms of energy. The last thing we want is to be like France dependent on Russian oil!

    Surely, once we leave the EU, dont all these ‘directives’ and the like disappear?

    I can only wish you well since I am not a voter/citizen in your country.
    Bonne chance from the southern hemisphere …

    Don’t be tempted to make a donation. I foolishly thought it was to GWPF but it went to so they can continue to bombard me with rubbishy.
