A couple of weeks ago I saw a story about how the government was contemplating whacking more green taxes on your energy bill in the vain hope of “saving the planet”.
#Homeowners set to be hit with new eco #tax on affordable natural #gas as ministers plot to cut use in favour of bloody expensive #electricity created using green methods to cut UK’s already miniscule emissions https://t.co/nfiFZmBDzU #energy #energyprices

Yesterday I saw news that they’ve actually been daft enough to press ahead with the idea.
Green levies WILL still be added to your gas bill: Families face £100 surcharge under plan to cut emissions by phasing out conventional boilers by 2035 https://t.co/EzWiyz0swN

As it says in the embedded tweet above, it is in the vain hope saving the planet and pushing people towards using greener sources of energy that some experts are now saying don’t stand a chance.

This is of course at the same time other issues are already making energy bills more expensive as it is without sticking a stupid extra tax on it, with a number of wise heads warning against it.
UK energy is too dear. We import too much and are vulnerable to world price spikes. The government needs to back more UK electricity and gas output. You cannot sustain industry with such dear gas prices.

The devastation from net zero will wreck economies of the west & destroy society. It is a simple and real as that. We are being led into a great disastrous reset of the modern world. All based on blatantly fake science, falsified computer scenarios and a 40 year fear campaign.
