• A Climate Hysteric’s Fake Enemies List

    • Steven J. Allen, The Wall Steet Journal

    Who really has the power in the climate-change debate? In a widely cited 2014 study, the sociologist Robert Brulle purportedly exposed a network of nonprofit groups executing “a deliberate and organized effort to misdirect the public discussion and distort the public’s understanding of climate change.” He provided scant evidence of the public’s ignorance but lots of […]

    A generation who thought they were doing the right thing by buying diesel and clean energy have been taken for a ride. When I was three my parents moved next to one of the busiest roundabouts in Europe. Hogarth roundabout in west London leads to the M3 and M4 and the smell of car fumes […]

  • 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, […]

    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

    • Date: 17/04/17
    • 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 […]
