    • Date: 27/03/10

    “I see Africa as a … partner with America on behalf of the future we want for all of our children,” President Obama declared in Ghana last July. However, three months later, the President signed an executive order requiring that the Overseas Private Investment Corporation and other federal agencies reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with their […]

  • Barun Mitra: Environmental ‘Crisis’ And Government Power

    • Date: 26/03/10

    The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change admitted for the first time last month that it is facing a crisis of confidence. But the IPCC’s failings go far beyond the recent spate of errors identified in its reports. The problem began with the global political climate that led to the formation of the IPCC […]

    • Date: 25/03/10

    South Africa’s finance minister, Pravin Gordhan, has an op ed in the Washington Post that illustrates the challenges facing developing nations as they struggle to provide the affordable access to modern energy needed to pull citizens out of poverty.

  • Stephen McIntyre: Another Tainted Inquiry

    • Date: 24/03/10

    It’s pretty discouraging that yet another inquiry is tainted by the selection of their panel. The University of East Anglia, seemingly emboldened by getting away with Geoffrey Boulton’s appointment to the ethics panel, have become much bolder in choosing the science panel. Chairman Oxburgh, a former oil company executive, is a green entrepeneur. Kerry Emanuel is […]

  • End-Phase Of The Climate Wars?

    • Date: 21/03/10

    History may see the interview of CRU’s Professor Phil Jones by the BBC’s Roger Harrabin on 12 February 2010 as the opening of the end-phase of the long-running “alarmists versus sceptics” debate. The gap between these two schools has never yawned as widely as media reports often suggest. Both agree that climate is always changing, […]

  • Matt Ridley: The Case Against The Hockey Stick

    • Date: 16/03/10

    Andrew Montford’s The Hockey Stick Illusion is one of the best science books in years. It exposes in delicious detail, datum by datum, how a great scientific mistake of immense political weight was perpetrated, defended and camouflaged by a scientific establishment that should now be red with shame. It is a book about principal components, […]

  • Terence Corcoran: Remember Amazongate?

    • Date: 13/03/10

    Climate scientists attached to the rickety Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change structure raise two key interchangeable arguments in their defense. The first is to deny that anything of significance has been found in the various IPCC scandals. Climategate? Nothing there but a few emails that display intemperate behaviour and typical charmless chat among scientists doing […]
