• 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 […]

    • Date: 27/04/10

    My silence since mid-February has not meant that I have taken my eye off the climate-change scene. Far from it, although I have to confess that I have become increasingly wearied and bored by the fatuous lack of reality exhibited on this topic by many UK politicians.

  • Brendan O’Neill: Bow Down Before This Mighty Volcano!

    • Date: 27/04/10

    Like an ancient cult of nature-worshippers, some are celebrating the way the volcano has thwarted modern life. Could there be any better illustration of the opinion-forming classes’ aloofness from the public and alienation from modernity than their embrace of the volcanic ash spreading from Iceland across Europe?

  • Robert Bryce: Five Myths About Green Energy

    • Date: 26/04/10

    Americans are being inundated with claims about renewable and alternative energy. Advocates for these technologies say that if we jettison fossil fuels, we’ll breathe easier, stop global warming and revolutionize our economy. Yes, “green” energy has great emotional and political appeal. But before we wrap all our hopes — and subsidies — in it, let’s […]

  • Benny Peiser: Political Climate Change

    • Date: 23/04/10

    The debacle of Copenhagen shows that conventional climate policies have no future and we need alternative approaches that are politically realistic and economically feasible, writes Dr Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation. Whatever the outcome of the forthcoming election, Britain’s extravagant climate policies are unlikely to survive intact. The coming battle over […]
