• Voters Could Chill Global Warming Law

    • Date: 06/05/10

    It looks likely California voters will have a chance to restrain out-of-control government attempts to regulate and tax the state into economic oblivion. More than 800,000 petition signatures have been submitted to qualify for the November ballot a measure to freeze California’s Draconian global warming law. Almost twice the number required signatures were collected, so […]

  • Waving Goodbye To The 2°C Threshold: The Post-Copenhagen Reality

    • Date: 05/05/10

    If your goal is keeping the earth’s temperature rise below 2°C, the only thing you have left is hope. Hope that the climate sensitivity—how much the global temperature rises from an increase in greenhouse gas concentrations—is far beneath what the climate models calculate it to be. When it comes to trying to use emissions cuts […]

  • Cap And Fade

    • Date: 04/05/10

    Amazingly, in the wake of the Copenhagen climate policy meltdown, growing climate science turmoil, worldwide recession and runaway national fiscal disasters, the official policy machines still crank out plans for carbon taxes and cap-and-trade regimes. They also refer to official greenhouse emissions targets, despite obvious signs that such national goals are fast becoming irrelevant, unnecessary […]

Angela Merkel has been forced to recognise that the fretfulness about global warming catastrophe is being replaced by sensible pragmatism. Only the benefactors of climate hysteria still resist. At other times, when climate catastrophism was still a booming […]

    • Date: 03/05/10

    They tried to crucify Gabriel Calzada for pointing out that their wind and solar programs were a big waste of money. But even Spain’s socialist government recognizes economic reality when default comes knocking. You can’t keep spending $750,000 per “green” job created when you’re going broke.

  • Has Al Gore Given Up On Global Warming?

    • Date: 02/05/10

    Al Gore’s purchase of a near nine million dollar Montecito mansion with an almost comical carbon footprint (nine bathrooms!) probably means that he has given up on the global warming movement and decided to become a Hollywood producer (not that he ever made much of a distinction between two). Montecito is where the creme of […]

  • Matt Ridley: Ill Wind

    • Date: 01/05/10

    I’ve admired Robert Bryce’s work since he did such a great job of exposing the biofuel boondogle in Gusher of Lies. Now he has a new book, which I have just kindled, on the myths of green energy, called Power Hungry. He summarises his argument in the Washington Post. One fact that jumps out is how much […]

  • Changing Climate-Change Climate

    • Date: 29/04/10

    It was always going to be an uphill battle for the U.S. Congress to pass comprehensive climate and energy legislation in an election year. But with Senator Lindsey Graham’s likely decision to withdraw his support from the landmark bill, the prospects are now virtually zero. That is not just because Mr. Graham had been the […]
