• Nigel Lawson: Low-Carbon = High Energy-Cost Economy

    • Date: 10/05/10

    Mrs Duffy got it right. The overriding challenge facing the next government is to make an early and decisive start on reducing, and eventually eliminating, this country’s unprecedented and unsustainable fiscal deficit. Any failure to do so would cause serious alarm in the financial markets which provide the funds to finance the deficit, and make […]

  • The Spanish Solar Power Bust

    • Date: 07/05/10

    “[T]hink of what’s happening in countries like Spain … where they’re making real investments in renewable energy. They’re surging ahead of us, poised to take the lead in these new industries,” declared then-President-elect Barack Obama back in January 16, 2009. Of course, any industry can “surge” if the government dumps enough taxpayer dollars into it. Now […]

  • The Wind Farm Scam

    • Date: 06/05/10

    I never thought I’d agree with a member of the Kennedy clan, but Bobby Kennedy’s son got it right when he dismissed the much-hyped Cape Wind project that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar approved last week. “It’s a boondoggle of the worst kind,” Kennedy said. “It’s going to cost the people of Massachusetts $4 billion over the […]

    • 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 […]

    • Date: 03/05/10

    In Petersberg, near Bonn, heads of state and government are discussing the future of international climate policy. 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.

  • Spain Cuts Green Subsidies As Debt Crisis Deepens

    • 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. April 30 (Bloomberg) — Spain is lancing an 18 […]
