    When the government hugs big business, big business hugs back, and its embrace leaves the rest of us in the cold. Amazon is taking its ball and going home, and New York Democrats are actually celebrating. I wasn’t a huge fan of the deal New York and Amazon worked out. I don’t like corporate welfare, […]

  • Climate Wars: Mann vs. Steyn Likely To Head To U.S. Supreme Court

    • Mark Stein

    Mark Steyn writes on his webpage: There was some modest activity yesterday in the Mann vs Steyn climate-change hockey-stick case, which will shortly be entering its eighth year. As that ludicrous fact testifies, it has been procedurally bollocksed by the District of Columbia courts, which is why it will almost certainly be headed to the Supreme Court. When […]

  • Extinction Rebellion? There Is Little Sign Of A Climate Emergency

    • Date: 18/02/19
    • Andrew Montford, Reaction

    They were entirely sincere in their views. But I was shocked at how little they knew of the climate issues they were campaigning about. I had a fascinating encounter with two Extinction Rebellion activists in a television studio last week. We were there to film a pilot episode of the new Scottish evening news bulletin, […]

  • The Green New Deal’s Disastrous First Week

    • Date: 14/02/19
    • Kyle Smith, National Review

    Somehow the Democrats managed to create a shiny, magical rainbow-colored unicorn and immediately impale themselves on it. How bad is the debut of the Green New Deal looking a week later? “Dead on arrival” makes it sound better than it is. It’s more like Zima meets Green Lantern times Bill Simmons’s HBO show. It’s such a disaster […]

  • 2019: Already A Vintage Year For Climate Claptrap

    • Date: 06/02/19
    • Chris Morrison, The Conservative Woman

    It has been an encouraging start to the contest for the year’s loopiest climate story. First out of the blocks is a cracker from the geography department at University College London with the suggestion that Spanish colonisation in the Americas contributed to global cooling. Early interest is also being shown in a paper that appeared in […]

  • Apocalypse Creep & Liberal Eschatology

    • Commentary Magazine

    Nothing says “end of the world” like a big fake clock. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists gave its annual Doomsday Clock presentation on Thursday and announced that it’s still two minutes to midnight. Last year, the group of 15 scholars and scientists moved the phony minute hand of fate 30 seconds closer to Armageddon, from two-and-a-half […]

    • Clean Energy Wire

    Following a sharp drop in new onshore wind power installations in Germany in 2018, the industry warns that mounting resistance against new turbines endangers a sufficient supply of renewable energy demanded by industry and national climate targets. New capacity additions fell 55 percent to 2.4 gigawatts (GW) in 2018, mainly due to projects that won renewable auctions in 2017 […]
