Is the principle of green energy self-defeating?

Under new plans revealed by the UK government it will cost UK homeowners more and more for their green energy in the future as consumers are forced to cover the cost of this massive change in the power supply system in the UK. But is the principle of green energy self-defeating?

While this may seem a rather bizarre statement to make, let's consider the fact that green energy in the UK always equates to more expensive energy for UK consumers and UK businesses. So how do UK consumers and UK businesses funded this additional expense?

The only way that consumers and businesses can fund the increase in the cost of green energy is by increasing output which in turn increases the amount of harmful gases released into the atmosphere. So we potentially have a vicious circle in that the more costly the energy supply to UK consumers and businesses the more output we need to cover these costs which causes more and more damage to the environment. So who actually benefits?

The only benefactors of an increase in energy costs and taxes are the government who appear to have the green issue at heart but ultimately it is just another ruse to increase the tax take from every UK consumer and business.
