    What will happen next with the coronavirus epidemic is unknown, but it seems certain to claim one very high-profile victim: the so-called Green New Deal. Good riddance. The current crisis in the U.S. economy is, in miniature but concentrated form, precisely what the Left has in mind in response to climate change: shutting down large sectors […]

  • Covid-19: A Glimpse of the Dystopia Greens Want Us to Live In

    • Date: 27/03/20

    This pandemic has shown us what life would be like if environmentalists got their way. Greens just can’t help themselves. As the rest of us do what we can to tackle or withstand the Covid-19 crisis, they treat it as a sign, a warning from nature, a telling-off to hubristic, destructive mankind. The speed with which […]

    As businesses across the country shutter their doors and millions of Americans put their jobs and lives on hold to battle the Coronavirus, Senate Democrats are blocking a federal relief package because it insufficiently addresses climate change. Senate Democrats voted three separate times within 24 hours to block a procedural vote allowing debate on a […]

  • United States Warned About Internationally Mandated “Coronavirus Economy’ In The Name Of Paris

    • Date: 23/03/20

    Why the America must pay attention to developments in Europe in the name of climate change The United States should pay close attention to developments in Europe, beyond their governments’ response to the COVID-19 virus. Other contagions loom. For example, we now see proof that the retrenchment embodied by the current “coronavirus economy” could become […]

  • Lorrie Goldstein: We Gambled On The Wrong Threat — Climate Change

    • Date: 22/03/20
    • Lorrie Goldstein, Toronto Sun

    Wrong decisions have dire consequences. We’re now facing them. One of the key lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic is that for at least the past decade, we focused disproportionately, or rather our governments did, on one potential global threat — human-induced climate change — to the exclusion of all others. Anthropogenic climate change became the […]

  • Matthew Paris: Crashing The Economy Will Also Cost Lives

    • Date: 21/03/20
    • Matthew Paris, The Times

    Just like the virus, impoverishment kills, and locking down the elderly might have been a drastic but fairer solution. From the start we’ve all agreed on one thing: we must follow the science. Viruses, we say, are blind to politics and the coronavirus emergency requires only one political choice: to listen to the experts. Our […]

    • Matt Ridley, The Spectator

    There are no good outcomes from here. The hardships ahead are like nothing we’ve known. But in the long run, we will get through this.

  • As The Coronavirus Pandemic Takes Hold, We Are Making Decisions Without Reliable Data

    • Date: 17/03/20
    • Prof John P.A. Ioannidis, Stat

    In the absence of data, prepare-for-the-worst reasoning leads to extreme measures of social distancing and lockdowns. Unfortunately, we do not know if these measures work. The current coronavirus disease, Covid-19, has been called a once-in-a-century pandemic. But it may also be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco. At a time when everyone needs better information, from disease modelers and governments […]
