• Global Warming: The UK’s Expensive and Futile Gesture Politics – Part 3

    • Date: 16/09/19
    • Ruth Lea, The Conservative Woman

    The UK’s expensive decarbonisation policies are not aligned with the latest scientific evidence. In my previous two pieces for The Conservative Woman on the UK’s expensive and futile gesture politics on global warming I, firstly, discussed the UK’s relatively tiny contribution to global CO2 emissions and, secondly, outlined the development of our climate change policies. In this third and final […]

  • Democrats: Americans Won’t Pay Your Carbon Taxes

    • Date: 09/09/19
    • Bloomberg

    Resistance to the costs of taxes and regulations is likely to be a bigger obstacle to climate plans, in the end, than disbelief in global warming.  Much has been made of the willingness of Democratic presidential candidates to risk taking positions that aren’t popular with voters at large in order to boost themselves in the primaries. Democratic […]

  • A shoddy reporting system

    • From a correspondent

    The British Geological Survey seems unable to run a reliable survey Campaigners opposed to fracking have made rather a lot of the fact that the British Geological Survey (BGS) says it has received more than 2,000 reports from people in Lancashire saying they felt the 2.9 magnitude tremor in the area on Bank Holiday Monday.

  • Matt Ridley: The Most Dangerous Thing About the Amazon Fires Is The Apocalyptic Rhetoric

    • Date: 29/08/19
    • Matt Ridley, The Spectator

    The temptation to moralise on social media is so strong among footballers, actors and politicians alike that it is actually doing harm. Get the economic incentives right and the world will save its forests.  Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese expert on forests who also plays football, so when he shared a picture online of a […]

  • New Indian Enlightenment Can Teach Hysterical West Lessons In True Scepticism

    • Date: 26/08/19
    • Sanjeev Sabhlok, Times of India

    Only when our children have developed the strongest possible level of scepticism, first introduced to the world by Charvaka and later emulated by Socrates, can they be said to have been educated. Most adults have little or no time to investigate the claims about climate change. They either accept them, assuming that “authority figures” have […]

  • Greta Thunberg and the Plot to Forge a Climate Warrior

    • Date: 23/08/19
    • Dominic Green, The Times

    The teenage activist Greta Thunberg wants nothing more than to change the world. The shadowy cabal behind her has other goals. Greta Thunberg’s great American adventure has begun. Last Wednesday, she set sail from Plymouth like the pilgrims did, her Mayflower a zero-carbon but very expensive racing yacht; her goal not religious liberty but a camera-rich […]

    Poor Elton John. He’s ‘deeply distressed’. What’s happened to the filthy-rich national treasure? Well, some people were mean about his posh, rich mates using his private jet to fly to his swanky pad in the South of France. Can you believe the indignities celebrities have to endure? Us plebs with our once-a-year jaunts on Ryanair […]

  • How Green is St Greta’s Ark? Er, Not Very

    • Date: 20/08/19
    • Michael St George, Conservative Woman

    LAST Wednesday, in a blaze of unremittingly fawning publicity and uncritical adulation of which even Moses descending from Mount Sinai with the tablets bearing the Ten Commandments would have been envious, the good ship Mazilia – or, as I prefer to call it in view of its almost quasi-religious mission, ‘Greta’s Ark’ – set sail […]
