    Half of academic papers are never read by anyone other than their authors, peer reviewers, and journal editors.

    The press reaction to the annual GWPF lecture delivered by Matt Ridley at the Royal Society illustrates perfectly the insanity of the current state of discussion of climate change and all things environmental.

    Well that didn’t take long. U.S. shale producers have wasted no time capitalizing on the recent bump in oil prices, spurred by OPEC’s tentative agreement to cut oil production at its semiannual meeting next month.
