    More propaganda from Harrabin. The Automobile Association (AA) has joined green groups in warning that recent changes in energy policy will harm the climate. A survey of motorists suggests they will be more likely to buy polluting cars following a Budget change. Environment groups say in a letter to the prime minister this is one […]

  • Another Sexed-Up Climate Report

    • Date: 15/08/15
    • Andrew Montford, Bishop Hill

    The literature cited by the author team provides virtually no support for the claims they make. They are just sexing things up a bit. Sir David King, the Foreign Office’s adviser on climate change, has commissioned a report into the effects of climate change on food security. There’s a monster team of authors featuring among others Tim […]

  • Rupert Darwall: Against the Dogmatists

    • Date: 12/08/15
    • Rupert Darwall, RealClearBooks

    Environmentalist doom-saying, according to author Ronald Bailey, is not about scientific prediction but about ideology: one that says nature is good and humanity is evil. In The End of Doom, Bailey challenges modern environmentalism on its own ground. Cut loose from its scientific moorings, environmentalism attacks the human aspiration for a better life. Doing so, […]

  • BBC Forced To Retract False Claims About Cyclone Pam

    After three months and much stubborn arrogance from them, the BBC have finally been forced to retract one of their lies about Cyclone Pam, which devastated Vanuatu in March. https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2015/03/20/bbc-guardian-lies-about-pam/ As readers may recall, I pointed out that their above claim of 300km/h winds was fallacious and grossly misleading in an attempt to compare the […]

  • Harrabin Explodes As BBC Presenter Mocks Met Office’s Failed Climate Prophecies

    • Date: 07/08/15
    • Damian Thompson, The Spectator

    Roger Harrabin is paid by the licence payers. Yet, judging by his Twitter feed, his views are even more partisan than those of Richard Black. When he’s not plugging a Guardian conspiracy theory involving US Republican sceptics and BP, he’s wringing his hands at the cut to wind subsidies or lamenting the lack of civil servants to enforce ‘smarter’ environmental laws. Climate change […]

  • Why Obama’s $2.5 Trillion Climate Plan Won’t Change The Climate

    • Date: 07/08/15
    • Jo Nova

    Welcome to the fairy-land world where we try to control the weather with our electrical generation sources. Obama’s new plan to stop storms and hold back the tide could make the US poorer by as much as $2.5 trillion dollars, but will not make any difference to the global climate even if it is carried […]

  • Renewables Fail Even When They Succeed

    • Date: 04/08/15
    • The American Interest

    The costs of renewables are dropping, thanks in large part to generous state subsidies and production chains that have helped to drive down prices of solar panels and to a lesser extent wind turbines. But cheaper doesn’t yet mean cheap—renewables still rely on government support to help them fight fossil fuels for market share—and up-front […]

  • Today’s Top News: Greens Write A Letter

    • Date: 01/08/15
    • Andrew Montford, Bishop Hill

    Anti-capitalist green groups and crony capitalists are annoyed about George Osborne’s decision to cut renewables subsidies and have written to the Prime Minister to say he’s a bad boy. With depressing inevitability, the BBC has launched a full-scale PR campaign to back them up. So we have a Roger Harrabin article about the letter here, a segment […]
