    For the wealthy, a carbon tax would be an inconvenience.  For the rest of us, a carbon tax is a catastrophe. If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street, If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat. If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat, If you take a walk, I’ll tax […]

    Some climate change alarmists have become the Roman Inquisition of the 21st century. Once again, the Earth is put at the centre of everything, with other issues such as free speech, democracy and scientific freedom relegated to some distant orbit. Galileo wrote, “In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble […]

    • Date: 04/01/19
    • Anastasios Tsonis, The Washington Times

Of all the accounts of Christmases ruined by the Gatwick drone incident, the most affecting came from 16-year-old Tivka Dillner. She described, in a letter to […]
