    With the eastern seaboard currently ravaged by bushfires, what sort of an idiot would actually cheer when one worked its way down the peninsular where he lived? I did, and there were a lot of others who did the same. To understand why, we must go back over more than a year when a winter […]

  • Are Australia Bushfires Worsening from Human-Caused Climate Change?

    • Date: 09/01/20
    • Roy Spencer

    The claim by many that human-caused climate change has made Australian bushfires worse is difficult to support, for a number of reasons. Summary Points 1) Global wildfire activity has decreased in recent decades, making any localized increase (or decrease) in wildfire activity difficult to attribute to ‘global climate change’. 2) Like California, Australia is prone to bushfires […]

  • Australian Bushfires: Tragic, But Not Unprecedented – Yet

    • Date: 07/01/20
    • Jennifer Marohasy, The Spectator-Australia

    The historical evidence indicates fires have burnt very large areas before, and it has been hotter before too. The word unprecedented is applied to almost every bad thing that happens at the moment, as though particular events could not have been predicted, and have never happened before at such a scale or intensity. This is […]

  • Australian Government Says “Hazard Reduction” To Stop Fires. Labor Says “Carbon Market”

    Fire policy question for beginners: What is more effective — reduce bushfires or reduce CO2 emissions? A nation watches the fires. The Australian Navy has rescued around 1,100 people and 250 pets. Thousands of other have fled. Thousands more on the SE corner of Australia have been chopping down trees, cleaning properties, waiting in queues for fuel […]

  • The BBC, Bob Ward & The Climate Catastrophists’ Attack On Dissent

    • Date: 31/12/19

    What readers of newspapers and listeners to the radio do not see is the sustained and deliberate pressure put on editors to toe the alarmist line on climate change.  I was asked to appear on the Today programme on Saturday 28 December by the guest editor, Charles Moore, and made the case that the BBC’s […]

  • 2019: The Year Of Peak Green Bullsh*t

    • Date: 30/12/19
    • Ben Pile, Spiked

    Greta, Prince Harry and Extinction Rebellion took the eco-cult to new heights of madness. 2019 was the most extraordinary year of green bullshit yet. Despite the planet being a wealthier, healthier and safer place than it was when fears of global warming first appeared on the political agenda in the 1980s – and despite the failure of more than […]

  • 2019: The End of a Decade When Climate Alarmism Tipped Into ‘Climate Crisis’ Hysteria

    • Date: 29/12/19
    • Jaime Jessop, Climate Scepticism

    Bereft of an actual climate crisis, alarmist scientists and activists have proceeded to invent one, both linguistically and by co-opting extreme weather events and their impacts into the general narrative. In the final days of 2019, there is much to reflect upon events of the past year and, with the closing of the second decade of the […]

  • Why Walking to Work Can be More Polluting Than Driving to Work

    • Date: 26/12/19
    • Richard B. McKenzie, The Library of Economics and Liberty

    Driving a small or moderate-size car and not having to replace burned calories saves more energy (and greenhouse gases) than walking when the extra calories expended are replaced. Which is more polluting—driving a mile to work or walking that mile? The easy answer is, of course, driving. Cars have tailpipes; people don’t. Far more energy […]
