    Turns out the green movement played itself. Hysterical scaremongering over the Fukushima emergency had a number of nuclear plants closed, especially in Japan, only to be replaced by coal. This move to green energy is costing a bomb without lessening reliance on coal: Wind and solar account for just six percent of total electricity globally, despite […]

  • Puffin’ Up The Global Warming Angle

    • Date: 04/06/18
    • Andrew Montford, GWPF

    Robin McKie, the Guardian’s science editor, has an article up about declines in British sea bird populations. Fair to say then that it’s pretty standard Guardian fare, not only because of the (allegedly) impending apocalypse, but also because of the lack of citations to back the alarming claims up. The claims about puffins are particularly […]
