UK’s love of Henry Hoover to lead our ejection from the EU

EU VACUUM BAN A BLOW FOR HOUSE-PROUD BRITS

Our vacuum cleaner is 1800 watts. No doubt, just as with incandescent bulbs, there will be industry exemptions. What about industrial uses and hospitals that require high wattage vacuum cleaners? The 900 watt limit for 2018 will ban even Henry vacuum cleaners. Maybe that will be the last straw that moves us from the EU?! Though our leaders are hoping that a balkanised UK following Scottish "independence", followed by Welsh 'independence" followed by Northern Ireland finding its own way will make us incapable of independence, being lackeys of Brussels for ever more. Hitler could not have dreamed of a better way for German dominance over the Fourth Reich.

  • Just because a vacuume consumes more power, it does not nesacerrily mean that it is better. It’s like saying a 1980’s Jag with a 4 litre litre engine must be better than a 2 litre modern engine,

  • khars. Getting the same power out of a 900W hoover that I get out of my 2400W vax would need a revision of the laws of physics. Fortunatley if you read this directive wet and dry vacuum cleaners with wet capacity of >2.5 litres and commercial vacuum cleaners with a head >0.5m wide (dosen’t say the head cant be detachable and replacable with a smaller one) which are deemed as industrial vacuum cleaners are exempt, so we can expect to see a lot of these soon. Further directives are on the way limiting power for things like Ovens and Hobs and also specifying a maximum size for ovens. http://www.tuv-sud.cn/cn-en/resource-centre/publications/eu-published-commission-regulation-eu-no-66-2014-under-erp-directive-for-domestic-ovens-hobs-and-range-hoods-and-energy-labelling-commission-regulation-eu-no-65-2014-for-domestic-ovens-and-range-

  • Yes but far better to put a very high tax on carbon, then give a rebate to everyone of say 1 SD below of modal average use per year to every person. So most people have enough for health and life but put a high marginal cost to the problems of fossil fuel use and that contianed in the manufacture of that energy and products we use. Then the ‘free market’ will produce energy efficient products for all and in the most efficient way. Also a not for profit could rate the energy efficiency of a product which better informs consumer choice.

  • just bought my 500cc diesel driven vacuum cleaner sure to make plenty of smoke and pollution 🙂

  • CO2 is a colourless, odorless gas that plants breathe. Photosynthesis increases 50% in greenhouses where CO2 levels rise to 1000ppm, proving that higher CO2, even if it would cause 2 degree higher temperature, COULD NOT reduce life on the planet.

    Not only that, but CO2 is measured in parts per million and is significantly less efficient than water vapor at trapping heat and water vapor is a whopping 2% of the atmosphere, dwarfing the effect of CO2. not only that, but solar activity is the dominant factor affecting water vapour, with electromagnetic rays from the sun having a major effect on the nucleation of clouds.

    BUT, if the sun is at fault, that cannot justify tyrannical taxation and regulation of all human activity.

    If we were being sensible, we would seek to release as much CO2 as possible, to boost plant life on the planet and eliminate deserts and hunger, but focus on stripping heavy metals and other toxins from power station exhausts.

    Meanwhile, within 20 to 50 years, if only we let the economy develop, we would find clean energy from other sources and our reliance on coal would be long forgotten. For example, catalytic methods of using resonance to release hydrogen from water with minimal use of energy. Nuclear fusion will be available soon.

    So would folk just stop being obsessive compulsive wierdos and focus on REAL problems, like malnutrition, homelessness, poverty and true environmental pollution and destruction!! Like, if we put the resources put presently into CO2 reduction into pesticide reduction and converting to organic food and biodiversity, boy, how much more wonderful would our existence be? Oh, and nuclear power is only low carbon because it has the potential of destroying all carbon life forms. We cannot let the green movement promote nuclear fission!!! INSANITY!!!!!

  • @2 That sounds like a good idea PG.

    @1 The Henry canes every modern hoover. That’s why builders and cleaners use them.

    “If we were being sensible, we would seek to release as much CO2 as possible”. That is a pretty daft opinion given the unpredictable consequences of such a policy for the future. I take it you have children you want to expose to this kind of recklessness?

    Nuclear fission is as natural as anything else on our planet, been here from the start and not going away (fast). It is the main reason the interior of the earth is hot which allows tectonic plate movement that helps recycle CO2. Concentrating radioactive isotopes for nuclear power is a risky policy though I agree, given that inevitably shit happens. In areas of the world where geothermal energy can be used this could be viewed as nuclear fission power too.

    I suppose the vac cleaner legislation is about trying to make appliances more efficient, but like Gungarius says you can’t defy the laws of physics. EU politicians weak suckers?

  • Libby – its much more complicated than that – science is like that. I loath idiotic & sensationalist support of global warming, but also your own narrow minded sophistry, taken from the pseudo science global warming deniers camp. Its very complicated indeed, I know I have researched in depth (and have the scientific training to understand some of it). But humans are producing CO2 in quantities likely to impact on climate, this could have large affects on our children and their children. Using a tax and dividend system on CO2 production and taking that tax off of earned incomes and trade means we can have the best of all worlds, higher employment and earned incomes and a better planet. So such a system would decrease malnutrition, homelessness, poverty and be just as appicable to other forms of environmental pollution and destruction!

    Land Value Tax, for the same reasons as carbon and pollution taxes, would be the perfect way to stop the destruction of natural habitats and foster their restoration in a way that would again create highrt employment and earned incomes decrease malnutrition, homelessness and poverty while protecting wildlife.
