• Lord Donoughue: On Global Warming, Let’s Not Rush Into Panic Measures

    • Date: 16/01/10

    House of Lords, 14 January 2010: My Lords, I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Stone, for the opportunity to discuss the Copenhagen conference. Personally, I am not sure whether its failure was a disaster for the future of the planet or a fortunate rescue from dangerous commitments. Time will tell. I want to focus […]

    • Benny Peiser, Die Weltwoche 23 December 2009

    Die Weltwoche, 23 Dezember 2009: The failure of the UN climate summit in Copenhagen is a historical watershed that marks the beginning of the end of climate hysteria. Not only does it epitomise the failure of the EU’s environmental policy, it also symbolises the loss of Western dominance. The failure of the climate summit was not […]

  • The Political Climate Is Changing

    • Date: 12/01/10

    When I say the climate is changing, I do not mean, as many people do, that man-made global warming is destroying Planet Earth. I mean that the politics of climate change is changing rapidly all over the globe. Al Gore’s moment has come and gone. In the United States, Democrats, nervously facing midterm elections, are […]

  • California Cap-and-Trade Revolt

    • Date: 11/01/10

    Could Californians finally be serious about turning around their sputtering economy?

  • Charles Crawford: Copenhagen Climate Summit – How (Not) To Negotiate

    • Date: 10/01/10

  • Dominic Lawson: Brrrr, The Thinking On Climate Is Frozen Solid

    • Date: 10/01/10

    […] The threat of a gulf between a sceptical public and a political class determined — as it would see it — on saving us from the consequences of our own stupidity can have only been increased by the Arctic freeze that has enveloped not just Britain but also the rest of northern Europe, China […]

  • Peer-to-Peer Review: How ‘Climategate’ Marks The Maturing Of A New Science Movement

    • Date: 09/01/10

    How a tiny blog and a collective of climate enthusiasts broke the biggest story in the history of global warming science – but not without a gatekeeper of the climate establishment trying to halt its proliferation. It was triggered at the most unlikely of places. Not in the pages of a prominent science publication, or […]

  • Alan Oxley: Beat Poverty First, Then Tackle Emissions

    • Date: 08/01/10

    The climate change debacle at Copenhagen last month underlined the reality that any new global agreement will be on the terms set by developing countries. Leading commentators have written that China’s leading role in this was a demonstration of its new influence as an economic power. In one important sense they are wrong. This was […]
