• Rupert Darwall: The Hinkley Point Fiasco Doesn’t Bode Well For Brexit

    • Date: 20/07/17
    • Rupert Darwall, CapX

    Whatever one’s views on Brexit, the poor judgement displayed on Hinkley, particularly that of the Chancellor, suggests that Britain can’t but be heading for a bad Brexit deal. Figures published this week suggest that households could end up paying eight times more for the Hinkley Point nuclear power station than was originally estimated four years ago. This […]

  • Fear Is The Business Model That Has Made Al Gore Rich

    • Date: 17/07/17

    Scaremongering is what Gore does best, and fear is the business model that has made him rich, though his every apocalyptic scenario has failed to materialise. IN Al Gore’s latest cinematic dose of climate scaremongering, a young Asian man is crying. “I feel so scared” he wails, before vision of solicitous uncle Al patting his […]

  • Christopher Booker: Trump Took The Heat, But The Rest Of The G20’s Posturing Won’t Hide Their Rising CO2 Emissions

    China, the world’s largest CO2 emitter, is planning to double its yearly emissions. India, the third largest emitter, will treble its CO2 emissions. Golly, what excitement there was over President Trump’s refusal to sign the G20 communiqué backing the “Paris Accord” on climate change.  Trump was in a minority of one against all the other 19 […]

  • Environmentalists Are Birthing More Climate Hype

    • Date: 14/07/17
    • Jonah Goldberg, San Francisco Chronicle

    If you honestly believe that climate change will end all life on Earth (it won’t) or lead to some dystopian hell, what policies wouldn’t you endorse to stop it? One of the hallmarks of the “Ugly American” is the habit of thinking foreigners will understand what you’re saying if you just shout it louder and […]

  • Paris, Meet Kyoto

    Despite the best efforts of environmentalists to asphyxiate the fossil fuel industry, the United States has unexpectedly emerged as the world’s leading energy producer—and we owe it to old-fashioned American innovation. Cheaper energy has brought the U.S. greater security in the international arena, reduced U.S. reliance on oil-rich tyrannies, and made the average consumer wealthier. And […]

  • Christopher Booker: The Grenfell Tower Fire Would Not Have Happened Without EU And Climate Regulations

    • Date: 09/07/17
    • Christopher Booker, The Sunday Telegraph

    When, amid all the millions of words uttered about Grenfell, are we finally going to focus on the real cause of that fire? A comment on my column last week said that “only Booker could get a link between Grenfell, the EU and global warming into a single article”. But that is precisely the point. Without […]

    • Prof Michael J Kelly, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB3 0FA, UK

    This paper examines whether renewable energy can match the economic productivity of the current, largely fossil energy supply and the consequences if it cannot. Introduction In recent years the energy sector has accounted for about 9 per cent of global GDP,[1] with the implication that the return on energy investment in the world economy is, […]

  • The Bank of England Is Enslaved By Green Groupthink

    • Date: 29/06/17
    • James Delingpole, The Spectator

    What happens to its projections when the taxpayers of the world tire of being milked to subsidise renewables? I do find it odd that I’m so often having to write about the science of global warming, species extinction and ocean acidification because, though I’ve certainly acquired a pretty useful base knowledge over the years — […]
