INFERNO OF GREENIE OBSESSIONS
YOU can’t overlook the deadly green ideas that contributed to the Grenfell Tower fire in London.
Aluminium composite cladding was put on the building last May, not just for its looks but as a sustainable energy solution to get green ticks in the carbon-obsessed UK regulatory system.
As the 24-storey building’s Tenant Management Organisation declared in its strategic report about the refurbishment: “All of this will greatly enhance the energy efficiency of the building.”
The flammable insulation was designed to improve energy efficiency and all signs point to the fact it accelerated the fire, acting as a chimney to draw flames up the building.
Fears were raised last week that carbon emission targets were prioritised ahead of safety.
In Australia, cheap flammable Chinese aluminium composite cladding has led to building fires. Green ideology has given us sky high electricity prices, deadly pink batts and now flammable cladding.
