Climate change: Ban gas grid for new homes 'in six years'
By Roger Harrabin
BBC environment analyst
21 February 2019

New homes should be banned from connecting to the gas grid within six years to tackle climate change, UK government advisers say.

They want new-build homes in the countryside to be warmed by heat pumps - and cooking done on induction hobs, rather than using gas boilers and hobs.

In cities, new housing estates and flats should be kept warm by networks of hot water, says the report.

The water could be heated by waste heat from industry.

An alternative approach is to use heat pumps, which draw warmth from the sea or lakes; or burn gas from waste.

The report, from the independent Committee on Climate Change, recommends these changes are made to new homes at first because it's much more economical that way. They say it costs £4,800 to install low-carbon heating in a new home, but £26,300 in an existing house.

What's more, these systems will only work if homes are insulated to the highest standards so they need little heating.

It's the committee's job to lay down a pathway for the UK to meet its targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 (on 1990 levels).

They are dismayed that emissions from housing suddenly increased last year, when they should be going down.

The housing emissions mainly came from heating boilers - a little-discussed source of greenhouse gases.

The committee says that to meet climate targets, all homes in future will have to virtually eliminate emissions.

If global warming is taking place, why need heaters at all?

Maybe they should focus on the largest generator of the largest greenhouse gas.

Geothermal heat pumps cost approximately as much as other heat pumps of comparable size. The real cost is the installation, which runs $10,000-25,000. To make these operate, you must either drill a well down to the water table, have a lake or pond nearby, or lay a long closed loop of plastic tubing several feet underground.

There is such a thing as "district heating", meaning hot water piped around a community for warmth. One of the advantages of it is that you can shut off the heat to any resident whom the Ministry of Plenty suspects of crimethink.

When your long range goal is total control you eventually figure out how to make it happen. Scare enough ignorant people into believing we can control nature if we just let the "experts" and government be in charge. P.T. Barnum on a world scale.

Remember, after the Romans left what is now England and their stone buildings started to deteriorate, the Brits still hadn't learned how to use the materials and tools used by the Romans, so they put thatch roofs on the Roman buildings, just as they had been doing to their mud huts prior to the Roman invasion.

This is the "future" that "environmentalists" want for us. But just us, not China.

My bet is that none of these "government advisors" would be personally affected by this?

Or that any of their homes would be left in the cold?

Or that they are selling a competing source of energy so as to personally profit from this?

Or that they are just plain <censored>ing STUPID GREENIE WEENIE PROGTARDS?

Here’s an exercise for the reader. Search for “how is sea level rise measured” or something like that. What’s the most striking feature of the search results?

There’s nothing definitive. There isn’t a method that is a gold standard of measurement, there isn’t a table (even regional) that you could look up for actual numbers and measurements, there isn’t anything concrete to look at. It’s just vague “buoys and satellites”, but when you click on the details, it’s very non convincing.

And it’s only a couple of places that come up in the hits. It’s as if the legislators (the salesmen) have gone ahead to promote laws (advertising) without actual proof (product to sell)....
