‘Bitcoin and Porn Cause Global Warming’, Environmentalists Warn

PEXELS

Environmentalists have discovered the two new things most likely to turn the planet into a molten orb of glowing red climate death.
By awful coincidence, they happen to be the same two things that men enjoy doing perhaps more than anything in the world (at least when their wives or girlfriends aren’t looking.)

a) making vast sums of money out of exceedingly risky and speculative cryptocurrency trading when all the experts are saying it’s like 17th century Dutch Tulipmania, only with rocket boosters and sprinkled with essence of Enron, Sub-Prime Mortgages and the South Sea Bubble.

and

b) looking at screen pictures of purty, naked ladies and re-enacting the scene in South Park where the internet is banned and Randy breaks into the trailer housing the very last computer console still connected to Pornhub…

Yep. They’re not joking. Bitcoin and porn are the two latest things which, experts tell us, are causing “global warming”.

First, porn. According to this groundbreaking investigation in The Atlantic, pornography is causing even more danger to the planet than it did in the days when it simply involved cutting down forests to make glossy paper for dirty magazines.

Five Reasons Why the Conservatives Deserve to Lose the Next Election

The scale of the problem

Please: can someone stop his job being so ludicrously easy?

1. Cowardice. Whose bright idea was it to ban Nigel Farage from speaking at the Tory conference in Manchester? And what kind of signal does this send out to all those waverers in the party wondering whether or not to transfer the allegiances to UKIP?

“We’re so concerned that Nigel Farage might tell you stuff that you want to hear that we’ve decided not to let you hear it.”

2. Spinelessness. Remember all that talk about the importance of localism? Remember all those principled-sounding statements we’ve had from the likes of John Hayes and Eric Pickles that in future if communities don’t want wind turbines imposed on them then they won’t have to? Well, it seems all that has gone by the board. No doubt under combined pressure from all the energy companies (whose beneficiaries range from the deputy prime minister’s wife to the prime minister’s father in law) and the ideological greens at DECC, Cameron’s faux-conservatives have caved yet again. I’m told by planning experts that Eric Pickles’s vaunted amendments will make not the blindest bit of difference to communities trying to fight wind turbines. So this betrayal of their natural constituency in the shires will help the Conservatives how, exactly?

3. Dishonesty. Immigration, the Conservatives have twigged, is a key issue to many voters. Hence those crass, ugly billboards. Hence scary Immigration Minister Mark Harper’s tough-sounding statements about how the Coalition is really on top of the problem. Except as Andrew Gilligan revealed in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph it’s all a nonsense. Our statistics on immigration are so unreliable as to be meaningless. I don’t know about you but I don’t like being taken for a fool by a party angling for my vote.

4. Cynicism. Much sense has been talked by those who understand the internet – among them, Mic Wright and Willard Foxton, both of this parish – about the illiberalism and counterproductivity of Cameron’s grandstanding crusade against all manner of online pornography. If it makes no sense, why is he doing it? Why out of a cynical attempt to win the approval of the leftist harpies at MumsNet, of course. Sorry but I’m old-fashioned enough to believe that government policy should be based on high principle and sound evidence, not on cheap, cynical bids to appeal to socialistic control freaks outside your natural constituency. But then, Dave does think of himself as the “heir to Blair” doesn’t he?

5. Incompetence. Do you know what, though? I think I could still forgive the Tories all of the above if they’d at least managed to do the one thing Tories are always supposed to be good at: undoing the economic mess created by the previous socialist administration.

But this “economic recovery” we’re allegedly experiencing is, like “green jobs”, a chimera. Liam Halligan doesn’t believe in it.

(Nor, suspects Rob Tyler, is it any different in the US.)

And no, this isn’t just a cyclical thing or a world-economy thing. It’s a direct consequence of Cameron’s and Osborne’s failure to acknowledge the scale of the problem and deal with it.

The framework required to support meaningful growth is simply not there. We are still spending beyond our means, the national debt is still ruinous, we still have a massive balance of trade deficit, and the government seems in no hurry to do anything about it. A wrecking ball should have been taken to New Labour’s policies by now, given that they’re largely responsible for the mess we’re in. Instead, David Cameron is like a man who’s been put in charge of the family Christmas and doesn’t want to upset the old’uns by changing too much. Apart from walnuts in the sprouts and a new board game for after dinner, it’s the same as it ever was.

  1. rtj1211 says:7th August 2013 at 7:27 pmThe biggest problem most politicians have is that they won’t tell hysterical protestors that they’re, on this issue, if not in life in general, in need of being sectioned for the safety of society. Years of Animal Rights, kibosh Bridgenorth Power Station, no tracking, no this, no that: sometimes you JUST HAVE TO DECIDE. The odds are stacked against the honest politician, because the aim of the media is to inflame, not to support good decisions. The aim of the ueber rich is to install incompetent blackmailable leaders and as we all know, the media is their domain, isn’t it?The second biggest problem is that those who won’t suffer near armageddon are fairly comfortable with sweeping everything away. They wouldn’t be if their children weren’t getting fed, the bills were months late, their jobs were all gone and their dignity destroyed. I only respect calls for radical destruction by those who will suffer with everyone else. I”ve never read anything by anyone to say that anyone is either that brave, stupid or selfish (if they have kids). It’s always the rich who call for the poor to suffer. If they called for themselves to suffer just one little bit, people might listen to them. HS2? NIMBY city. Windmills? NIMBY city. Fracking in Sussex? NIMBY city. The list is endless. Go try poverty: you’d soon be less radical….The third biggest problem is political parties. They are the home for the never-had-a-job-in-the-real-world SPADs. How can you POSSIBLY know how to run the country across three or four generations if you’ve never worked for one generation in the real world?? This is not the 19th century and the British Empire. This is globalised Britain, tied to the EU as one harridan parent and the USA as the other. What’s needed is the Harry Houdini escapology to escape both without being trafficked by other evil monsters. If you really are so much of a swivel-eyed loon as to see America as solely a force for good in the world, then you really do need to grow up. America is 1984 imposed on the world: a global spying behemoth, stealing the world’s assets without mercy whilst retaining a constitution it hasn’t upheld since 1945. A country infested with organised criminality and an out-of-control military-industrial complex and investment banking system. It can still come good, but the odds are on it becoming a fascist dictatorship. It’s about time you saw America’s dark side, instead of staying fantasised by Hollywood’s misdirection. It might be better if we ditched English as the formal language: then America wouldn’t be so obsessed with us. They don’t seem quite so obsessed with Norway or Switzerland, do they?? They need to see a shrink and forget about the War of Independence. None of us over here had anything to do with it and we’re sick and tired of their slave-owners demeanour to the UK. We have contempt for the way they dealt with Katrina. Contempt. Their city governance is a shambles and most of them are about to go bust. Wall Street is organised mafia and no-one has the power to stop it. There is no value whatever added to the economy by Wall Street. Nothing it does couldn’t be done as well, if not better, by 50 Warren Buffett-like folks, one in each state, in terms of investment decisions. All the speculation would be got rid of and ordinary folks on Main Street could safely deposit their savings in thrifts again, without fear of getting raped by descendents of Solly Brothers and the other Wall Street Crime Families who carried out heists that make Fort Knox look like a stroll in the Park……..and are lionized for having done so.Agree with you about UKIP, however a twit today has probably given Nigel Farage more media time than he’s had in weeks. All he needs next is a joint announcement of Boris’ latest affair along with a dalliance of one of his candidates and he can say: ‘See – we’re just like Boris, who got re-elected as Mayor of London!’

    I’d like to write another one about why the Labour Party don’t deserve to win too.

    But I would also like you to actually start mapping out what a detailed UKIP manifesto might look like.

    I won’t vote for them in 2015 as a protest. I’ll only vote for them if their manifesto is credible, costed and free of fascism.

    They have two years to produce one.
