• The March For Science Is The Problem, Not The Solution

    • Date: 25/04/17
    • Lucas Bergkamp, Areo Magazine

    Once the norms of science have eroded under political pressure, science loses its ability to produce objective knowledge, and thus its social justification. On the 47th Earth Day, scientists and other concerned citizens marched for science. This march was “the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, […]

  • Paul Driessen: Green Energy Poverty Week

    A week dedicated to topics that underscore impacts environmentalists don’t want to discuss April 22 was Earth Day, the March for Science and Lenin’s birthday (which many say is appropriate, since environmentalism is now green on the outside and red, anti-free enterprise on the inside). April 29 will feature the People’s Climate March and the […]

  • Academic Intolerance Is Having Chilling Effects Even Beyond the Campus

    • Date: 23/04/17
    • Heather Mac Donald, The Wall Street Journal

    Academic intolerance is the product of ideological aggression, not a psychological disorder. Student thuggery against non-leftist viewpoints is in the news again. Agitators at Claremont McKenna College, Middlebury College, and the University of California’s Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses have used threats, brute force and sometimes criminal violence over the past two months in efforts […]

  • Steven Koonin: A ‘Red Team’ Exercise Would Strengthen Climate Science

    • Date: 21/04/17
    • Steven Koonin, The Wall Street Journal

    Put the ‘consensus’ to a test, and improve public understanding, through an open, adversarial process. Tomorrow’s March for Science will draw many thousands in support of evidence-based policy making and against the politicization of science. A concrete step toward those worthy goals would be to convene a “Red Team/Blue Team” process for climate science, one […]

  • Matt Ridley: Europe’s Age Of Unreason Harms Its Wildlife

    • Matt Ridley, The Times

    The Commission’s blinkered approach to insecticides shows how basic science is losing out to lobbyists and bureaucrats Is the European Commission determined to dim the Enlightenment? I ask this because its behaviour in one specific instance goes so utterly with dogma and against evidence as to suggest that there is no longer even a pretence […]

  • Fractivist Journalism and Its Proficiency with Fake News

    • Date: 13/04/17
    • Tom Shepstone, Gas Now

    Fractivist journalism is one gigantic exercise in fake news – fake fracking news that is – as a story on a University of Guelph methane study illustrates. Fake news seems to be enjoying quite a run these days, but there are no better examples than those provided by fractivist journalism. There are only a handful […]

  • Christopher Booker: Every Climate Initiative Imposed On Us By Politicians Has Ended In Disaster

    • Date: 08/04/17
    • Christopher Booker, Daily Mail

    ‘The truth is that every single green scheme the politicians have fallen for has proved to be a total fiasco: failing to achieve any of the results claimed for them and costing us more billions with every year that passes.’ What a parable for our times the great diesel scandal has been, as councils vie […]

  • Editorial: Diesel Drivers Pay The Price Of Green Zealotry

    • Date: 05/04/17

    As confessions of incompetence go, Sir David King’s admission that he was absolutely wrong to advocate diesel cars could hardly be more damning. In his role as the former chief scientific adviser to the government – and until last month, special representative for climate change – this is a man on whom the public were […]
