• Germany’s Green Folly Knows No Bounds

    It’s not easy implementing an ill-thought out policy. That’s the lesson Germany is being taught these days as it struggles to deal with the after effects of its ambitious and deeply flawed energiewende—its vaunted “green” energy transition. It’s a tricky task to somehow sell a nuclear phaseout as part of an eco-friendly energy policy, but […]

  • New Paper: Weather Extremes Don’t Harm Insurance Companies

    • Date: 07/10/15
    • Andrew Montford, Bishop Hill

    With “Mystic” Mark Carney telling anyone who crosses his palm with silver (or, indeed, anyone who crosses his path) that the insurance industry is going to be sunk by climate change, it’s interesting to see what the empirical evidence has to say on the subject. By happy coincidence, Ross McKitrick has just published a paper […]

  • Limping To Paris: New Draft Climate Text Is 20 Pages of Hedging

    • Date: 06/10/15
    • The American Interest

    At long last, negotiators have hammered out a condensed draft text for this December’s climate summit in Paris. Members of the UN’s catchily named Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action took a bloated 86 page document and slimmed it down considerably. But a quick reading of the text evinces the fact that brevity […]

    • Mark P. Mills, Forbes

    New data shows that a Millennial car-buying boom has started.  And their preferred car is not a Prius or Tesla, but station wagons and SUVs, and for the leading edge income-earners, luxury and sports cars.  The energy implications are beyond obvious. This is the year that the Millennial population surpasses the number of Boomers in America. It’s […]

    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    Mark Carney believes that fossil fuels will soon become stranded assets, as the world will fall for the global warming scam and stop using them. Apparently, nobody told the Chinese!

  • India’s UN Climate Pledge Could Triple CO2 Emissions By 2030

    • Date: 03/10/15
    • Paul Homewood, Watts Up With That

    Even with mammoth climate aid payments from the West, India’s CO2 emissions will likely treble by 2030. Moreover, there is absolutely no commitment, or for that matter likelihood, that there will be any drop in those emissions after 2030. BERLIN: India said on Thursday that it would increase the share of clean energy in its […]

    • Pramit Pal Chaudhuri, Hindustan Times

    If India insists that its targets are conditional on Western assistance, the Paris climate talks will be in trouble. India has announced its climate change goals for the period 2021 to 2030. Besides setting out New Delhi’s overall green energy policies, it also provides a template for negotiations at the coming Paris climate summit. The […]
