    • Date: 02/08/10

    We all know climate change was a major issue in the 2007 election. So much so that both Labor and the Coalition pledged to implement an emissions trading scheme in order to reduce the nation’s carbon footprint.

  • The Death Of The Global Warming Movement?

    • Date: 01/08/10

    Future historians will pinpoint Democratic Sen. Harry Reid’s energy legislation, released Tuesday, as the moment that the political movement of global warming entered an irreversible death spiral. It is kaput! Finito! Done! This is not just my read of the situation; it is also that of Paul Krugman, the Nobel laureate-turned-Democratic-apparatchik. In his latest column […]

  • Christopher Booker: Chris Huhne: Has Any Minister In History Seemed More Hopelessly Unfit To Do His Job?

Some, such as major religions, can persist, through shape-shifting, for millennia; others last for centuries, while most survive for mere decades. The death of a grand narrative is often protracted and largely unnoticed, until, one day, its […]

  • Desperate Days For The Warmists

    • Date: 26/07/10

    Ever more risibly desperate become the efforts of the believers in global warming to hold the line for their religion, after the battering it was given last winter by all those scandals surrounding the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
