• PC Insanity May Mean The End Of Universities

    • Date: 02/06/19
    • Roger Kimball, New York Post

    Once upon a time, universities were institutions dedicated to the pursuit of truth and the transmission of the highest values of our civilization. Today, most are dedicated to the destruction of those values. It is past time to call them to account. People used to talk about the ends of the university and how the […]

  • Where Do They Get These Ludicrous People From?

    Apocalypse is now just 11 years away, apparently The Times today is reporting some comments by Francesca Osowska, the bureaucrat who now runs Scottish Natural Heritage. Ms Osowska is alarmed, it seems: Imagine an apocalypse — polluted waters; drained and eroding peatlands; coastal towns and villages deserted in the wake of rising sea level and […]

  • Delingpole: To Survive, Britain’s Conservatives Must ‘Get Rid Of The Green Crap’

    • Date: 28/05/19
    • James Delingpole, Breitbart London

    For a Conservative candidate to embrace even a fraction of the Greens’ agenda is about as ludicrous and suicidal as coming out for the nationalisation of industry or higher taxes or a clampdown on free speech. Besides the Brexit Party, one of the big winners of the European Parliament elections — in Germany, France, Austria, […]

  • Why Germany’s Green Party Is So Strong: A Wake-Up Call

    • Date: 27/05/19
    • Rainer Zitelmann, Tichys Einblick

    The Greens have long been defining the cultural and political agenda in Germany. The more the other parties have been currying favour with them, the stronger the Green Party has become: voters now choose the original, not the imitators. “On many issues today, the Greens are setting the direction, then the SPD follows and finally […]

  • Making Life Worse: The Fatal Flaws Of Climate Hysteria

    • Joel Kotkin, The Orange County Register

    “Saving the planet” should be an unbeatable political slogan. Yet consistently the imagined “green wave” mindlessly embraced by most of the media continues to fall short, as evidenced by recent elections in Canada and Australia, as well as across much of Europe. These results reflect climate scientist Roger Pielke’s  2010 notion of “the iron law […]

  • Why Climate Change Alarm Is A Big Vote Loser

    • Date: 22/05/19
    • Paul Ormerod, City A.M.

    Costly environmentalist policies are not popular when it comes to elections. Whoever becomes Conservative leader might find it useful to learn from the Australian election result. The Labor opposition had led every major opinion poll for the past two years. But Scott Morrison of the Coalition is still Prime Minister – and it is his […]

  • Editorial: A Climate-Change Drubbing in Australia

    • Date: 19/05/19
    • Editorial, The Wall Street Journal

    The right in Australia won on the sharp contrast with the left on taxes, growth and climate change. If American Democrats want a warning about the consequences of embracing the Green New Deal, look no further than Saturday’s election shocker in Australia. The opposition center-left Labor Party had led in the polls for months but […]

  • Why The Australian Labor Party Suffered A Crushing Defeat

    • Date: 19/05/19
    • Adrian Papst, New Statesman

    Rather than staking its platform on workers and their jobs, Labor instead defended a position on climate change that appeals largely to middle-class voters. After three years of being ahead in the opinion polls, the Australian Labor Party lost Saturday’s election that had been billed as “unlosable”. Much like David Cameron’s surprise victory over Ed […]
