    • Date: 04/10/10

    It’s ironic that the United Nations should be hosting its latest climate negotiations in China. Not only is China now far and away the world’s largest emitter of carbon dioxide — believed by many (but not me) to cause global warming — China is also the main saboteur of negotiations for a deal to replace the […]

  • Energy And Climate Wars

    • Date: 04/10/10

    The title of Peter Glover’s and Michael J. Economides’ Energy and Climate Wars: How Naïve Politicians, Green Ideologues, and Media Elites are Undermining the Truth About Energy and Climate fails to do the work justice. While the subtitle accurately reflects the book’s fast-paced, biting tone, underneath Energy and Climate Wars is a smart and philosophically […]

  • Beware The European Wolf Wearing Green Clothing

    • Date: 03/10/10

    BRUSSELS eurocrats could write the book on circumventing free trade pacts and the devious web of complex subsidies, concessions and handouts, the EU has developed over the years.

  • Editorial: As Long As Pachauri Remains In Place, Nobody Will Trust The IPCC

    • Date: 24/09/10

    This newspaper has long been in the sceptical camp when it comes to the great man-made global warming scare. It is not the warnings of some scientists about the possible impact of climate change that are most objectionable but rather their elevation into an orthodoxy that it is not permissible to challenge.
