    Why the elite loves the eco-warriors. London’s Victoria and Albert Museum has acquired a number of artefacts associated with Extinction Rebellion (XR), the protest group campaigning to reduce Britain’s carbon emissions to ‘net zero’ by 2025. Apparently, just nine months since Extinction Rebellion’s first public stunt, its paraphernalia deserves to be housed alongside some of the […]

  • Chris Kenny: Sensible Climate Discussion Now Extinct

    You can’t reason with Extinction Rebellion. They are demanding that governments declare a climate emergency, make their parliaments subservient to activist mobs, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions to net zero within six years. As you delve into this mob, you realise they are even nuttier than you expected. They are not interested in debate, rational arguments, […]

    REMEMBER those men who used to wander the streets with placards proclaiming “The End Is Nigh” in big black letters, shouting about how the world is about to be destroyed and how we’ll all go to Hell? We used to pass by, laugh at the lunacy of the doomsayers, shrug and carry on happily with […]

    Decades before “democratic socialist” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) released her Green New Deal, rallying Democrats to the banner of remaking America in the name of fighting climate change, radio behemoth Rush Limbaugh warned that environmentalist activists are socialists in green clothing. His warning back in 1992 has been powerfully confirmed in recent months. “The militant […]

  • Maximise the Current Generation’s Wealth and Review Any CO2 Issues in 2050

    As a rule of thumb, 80 per cent of policy development should be about understanding the problem. Once a problem is understood, the solution generally commends itself.  But in the case of climate change, policymakers have bypassed this step and are insisting on “fixing” the “problem”. They forget that the IPCC’s own reports show that […]

  • Why Should We Subsidise Tomorrow’s Rich in the Name of the Climate?

    • Date: 29/07/19
    • Sanjeev Sabhlok, The Times of India

    As a liberal party, our default position is to reject any government intervention in the lives of people unless it is thoroughly justified. In particular, we reject the wishy-washy precautionary principle. Real harm must be proven before even the thought of government intervention is entertained. It is a matter of concern to us that Indian […]

  • Julie Burchill: The People’s Front of Extinction Rebellion Points To A Deeper Divide Within The Green Cause

    • Date: 29/07/19
    • Julie Burchill, The Sunday Telegraph

    The Extinction Rebellion mob are the most visible example of what passes for political protest these days; the dialectics of dummy-spitting and scweaming and scweaming till you’re sick – more Violet Elizabeth than Vladimir Ilyich. This being so, I was delighted to find that they are already experiencing a People’s Front of Judea/Judean People’s Front […]

  • Why the Precautionary Principle is Bad Policy

    • Date: 23/07/19
    • Sanjeev Sabhlok, The Times of India

    We have evolved as a species to be curious about scary things. Newspapers love to publish scary reports, which are like click-bait: they catch our attention. Health scares fascinate us the most. Environmental scares grab our interest, as well. Most scares, however, turn out to be false. For every true scare, there are hundreds of […]
