• The Riots Over Macron’s Global Warming Tax May End His Career

    • Date: 02/12/18

    The public reaction to French President Emmanuel Macron’s carbon tax increase that caused this weekend’s protests is making him even less popular and represents a profound challenge to Macron’s future. Count me among the disappointed about Emmanuel Macron. I listened closely to his 2016 campaign rhetoric and promises to return France to greatness. You might […]

  • The Climate Change Act: Ten Years of Punishing the Poor

    • Date: 30/11/18
    • Harry Wilkinson, The Conservative Woman

    A decade has passed since MPs voted to approve the Climate Change Act in a self-congratulatory fervour. Britain, they said, was leading the world. The pompous conceit of our leading politicians is truly world-beating, but their obliviousness to consequences has allowed one of the largest ever transfers of wealth from poor to rich, and has seen […]

  • The Paris Discord: Not In My Wallet

    • Date: 29/11/18
    • Abe Greenwald, Commentary

    But the fact that these massive demonstrations happened at all— that they involved some 283,000 protestors — shows how little anyone really worries about climate change. Global-warming activists predicted that Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris agreement on climate change would claim innocent lives. Trump pulled out over a year ago, and the death toll from the […]

  • Holman Jenkins: Even If Alarmists Were Right, Global Warming Is Affordable

    A new climate assessment allows us to think about good policy without panicking. Even if the U.S. economy grew at a meager 1.6% over the next 72 years, we’d still be three times as rich by 2090, with a GDP of $61 trillion. You may recall the young Democratic National Committee staffer who, after the 2016 […]

  • Joe Oliver: Climate Alarmists Seriously Harm The Economy

    Canada’s energy industry is in crisis mode. Our economy stands to lose over $45 billion annually due to the massive discount at which we sell oil to the U.S. because governments and environmental activists have blocked the construction of pipelines to tidewater. Their opposition is based on a profound belief that we must rapidly reduce […]

    The end is near, we’re all going to die. Unless, that is, we empower government to control more of the economy and our lives. It’s a standard trick of the left – predict doom and gloom in the future in an attempt to scare the Hell out of people while promising to avoid it if […]

  • Give Thanks That We No Longer Live On The Precipice

    • Date: 25/11/18
    • Paul Driessen, Townhall

    Thanksgiving is a good time to express our sincere gratitude that we no longer “enjoy” the “simpler life of yesteryear.” As my grandmother said, “The only good thing about the good old days is that they’re gone.” For countless millennia, mankind lived on a precipice, in hunter-gatherer, subsistence farmer and primitive urban industrial societies powered […]

  • We Need More Heretics To Question The New Religion On Tackling Climate Change

    • Date: 24/11/18
    • Cormac Lucey, The Sunday Times

    How should a sensible conservative view climate change? I have several concerns: the air of hysteria used to promote it as a cause; the science behind it; the remedies that are proposed to stem it; and the cost of those remedies. First, I am somewhat sceptical about the ideology of climate change, the phenomenon formerly […]
