• The only consistency about the climate change protesters is that they are completely wrong

    • Date: 17/04/19
    • Editorial, The Daily Telegraph

    The sanctimonious climate change activists essentially want to put us back into the dark ages by ending economic growth. Police have arrested more than 100 climate change protestors who have brought parts of London to a halt and vandalised dozens of buildings. They are part of an allegedly global movement demanding more action from governments […]

  • Matt Ridley: A costly temper tantrum

    A temper tantrum by mostly middle-class protesters to bring London to a halt will do nothing to help the climate and a lot to ruin ordinary people’s lives. They want net zero carbon dioxide emissions from the UK economy by 2025 to avoid “extinction”. I am not sure they have thought this through. That target […]

  • What we don’t know about walruses

    Last week, Netflix’s Our Planet series featured a segment in which walruses plunged to their deaths over cliffs. This was said to be as a result of global warming. Many media outlets subsequently reported Susan Crockford’s comments that the claims were ‘tragedy porn’ and highly contrived, and that it was probably actually a documented occasion […]

  • Sanity and humanity return to the World Bank?

    • Date: 14/04/19

    Hopefully, David Malpass will set a more realistic, more human-rights-focused tone at the World Bank – and for the various multilateral development banks. Billions of lives hang in the balance. President Obama infamously told Africans they should focus on their “bountiful” wind, solar and biofuel. If they use “dirty” fossil fuels to raise living standards “to […]

  • The Case for a Green ‘No Deal’

    • Date: 12/04/19
    • Steve Milloy, The Wall Street Journal

    Climate alarmism isn’t popular with the public, so Republicans don’t need an alternative. The Senate rejected the Green New Deal on a 57-0 procedural vote last month. Not a single senator voted to bring the proposal to the floor, including its chief sponsor, Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey. Climate alarmists demanded that Republicans come up […]

  • Get Ready For A Pileup, Tesla

    • Date: 11/04/19
    • Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., The Wall Street Journal

    The company braces for a $300 billion onslaught of money-losing green cars. “I would have bought my Tesla even without the tax rebate.” So went any number of irate emails from readers over the years, nonsensically for any point I was trying to make. Elon Musk isn’t in the business of leaving money on the […]

  • Garth Paltridge: Climate’s Uncertainty Principle

    • Date: 07/04/19
    • Garth Paltridge, Quadrant

    The bottom line of politically correct thought on climate alarm is so full of holes that it brings the overall sanity of mankind into question. That is, we need to put a dollar number to the cost of doing something now, a dollar number to the benefit thus obtained by the future generations, and a […]

  • Return Of The Dark Ages: The Looming Danger for Dissident Professors

    • Date: 04/04/19
    • Samuel J. Abrams, Minding the Campus

    Dissenting from the powerful progressive currents on our nation’s campuses can be very dangerous. Those who challenge the orthodox norms find little support among faculty, students, and administrators and can be severely punished socially and professionally. As I wrote here last week, students know that asking certain questions or holding particular public views can result […]
