    The U.S. sailed into an era of energy abundance following the natural gas boom. But the replication of the American energy story in other countries is facing a stern challenge from radical environmental groups. Why is hydraulic fracturing important for developing countries and why should they be wary of radical environmental groups? The shale gas […]

  • Coming Clean About UK Electricity Prices

    • Date: 31/12/18
    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    Britain’s electricity suppliers are reported to be considering further increases in prices to consumers. Climate policies are largely responsible for such price increases, yet government is more than content to let private energy companies and their shareholders take the blame. Intoxicated with subsidies, the electricity sector has hitherto colluded in this obfuscation of causes, but […]

  • The High Cost of Runaway Environmentalists

    You don’t need an advanced academic degree to practice common sense. That’s why working folks who carry the nation on their backs have grasped the limits of the renewable energy revolution more quickly than those enthralled with the promise of a fossil-fuel-free future. The United Nations’ 24th annual climate-change conference concluded the other day in […]

  • Renewables and Climate Policy Are On A Collision Course

    • Date: 09/12/18
    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    Those advocating climate change mitigation policy have hitherto wagered everything on the success of renewable energy technologies. The steadily accumulating data on energy and emissions over the period of intense policy commitment suggests that this gamble has not been successful. Pragmatic environmentalists will be asking whether sentimental attachment to wind and solar is standing in […]

    • Ian Austen, The New York Times

    Three years ago, Canada joined 194 other countries in Paris to announce a landmark agreement on climate change, now informally known by the French capital’s name. This week began in Paris, however, with startlingly violent discord over fuel taxes stemming from that climate deal. The protesters, clad in the yellow safety vests France requires motorists to carry, are […]

    REGULAR readers may remember my report in May on the Government’s failure to respond to the devastating critique of government energy policy by Dieter Helm, Britain’s foremost energy economist. The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark, has finally responded, thirteen months after the Cost of Energy Review was published. His […]

    • Date: 05/12/18
    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    “Broadly speaking, I would judge that French popular anger is the shape of things to come globally, as climate policies begin to move into more difficult sectors,” GWPF energy editor John Constable said. The French love a good riot, but the political backlash to the French government’s plans to increase carbon taxes on fuel could […]

    The government has suddenly renewed its interest in carbon capture The news that the government has suddenly renewed its interest in carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a bit of a puzzler.  Back in 2015, it cancelled the £1billion competition to develop commercial-scale CCS, a move which led to much gnashing of teeth among the […]
