    With weary inevitability, the BBC has decided that it is going to issue an apology after a sceptic – Nigel Lawson in this case – was allowed a rare opportunity to state their case on the airwaves.  This is starting to be something of a ritual for the corporation. Once in a month of Sundays, a […]

  • Matt Ridley: War Against Chemicals Is A Shame On Science

    The glyphosate story is a scandal, of the kind that would be front-page news if it happened in industry, rather than a branch of WHO. But the BBC has not covered the Reuters story. Bad news is always more newsworthy than good. The widely reported finding that insect abundance is down by 75 per cent […]

  • Green Suicide Down Under: Turnbull’s Energy Policy An Election Death Warrant

    • Date: 21/10/17
    • Peta Credlin, Daily Telegraph

    Malcolm Turnbull had one shot left in the leadership locker and he blew it. The mere fact that Labor say they’ll support his new energy policy is enough for ordinary Australians to know it’s more about his personal climate change obsessions than them, their power bills and making ends meet. Recasting Australia’s energy future with […]

  • Nice Try, But Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee Fails The Test

    • Chris Kenny, The Australian

    Climate and energy policy, in my view, is an area where the major parties, bureaucracy, media and even most industry groups are out of step with the practical concerns and common sense of the mainstream. Here are the politically correct, morally vain views of the so-called elites coalescing around post-material goals that can only damage […]

    The Turnbull Government’s electricity plan is politically stuffed if this is where the debate’s got to: Malcolm Turnbull’s new energy policy is fuelling anxiety among government MPs, who are liken­ing it to a “cap and trade” carbon scheme and demanding that emissions reductions be delayed as long as possible to minimise costs. The Prime Minister yesterday […]

    Its policy of eco-imperialism forces renewables on a reluctant but largely helpless developing world What is the point of the World Bank? You probably think of it, if at all, as a benign institution, a kind of giant, multilateral aid agency, whose job it is to bring liquidity to developing nations and help them grow […]

  • Malcolm Turnbull’s Magical Energy Plan Has A Reality Problem

    • Date: 17/10/17
    • Graham Lloyd, The Australian

    Malcolm Turnbull and his energy minister Josh Frydenberg want everyone to believe they have turned the proverbial grit sandwich into a magic pudding on energy. There is scant detail but big promises, and enough retail politics to carry the energy fight all the way to the next election. The Renewable Energy Target will finish as […]

  • John Stone: Abbott’s Speech Tells It Like It Is On Global Warming

    • Date: 16/10/17
    • John Stone, The Australian

    After reading the full text of what The Australian’s leading article called Tony Abbott’s “provocative” London speech, in my considered opinion it is one of the most outstanding speeches in years by any Australian politician.  It will ring around the world, and is already doing so.
