And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward.” — Barack Obama, January 14 2014 The problem with President Obama’s strategy for […]

    A thoughtful and knowledgeable individual like Myron Ebell appears to be perfectly suited to lead the transition to a new EPA. President-elect Donald Trump has named Myron Ebell to head up his transition team for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The news was met with name-calling, even though Ebell agrees with the same position taken […]

    “You can pretty much burn the Paris agreement.” President Obama’s environmental legacy went up in smoke the minute Donald Trump won. Obama has spent the past four years pursuing an aggressive regulatory agenda aimed at lowering the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels, boosting green energy, and giving the U.S. a leading role in the global […]

  • What Will President Trump Do About Climate And Energy?

    • Date: 09/11/16
    • Michael Lynch, Forbes

    Don’t go out and buy Air Canada stock just because Donald Trump was elected; the initial reaction is not too dissimilar from that following the elections of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.  Although many liberals were unhappy with their electoral success, the aftermath was far short of the predicted apocalypse.  Given Donald Trump’s record, expect that […]

Matthew Boulton, of the 18th-century engineering firm Boulton & Watt, once boasted of his company’s steam engines, “I […]

    • Christopher Essex and Matt Ridley, GWPF

    Foreword to Donna Laframboise’s new report Peer Review: Why Skepticism is Essential The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has repeatedly and falsely claimed that it depends entirely on peer-reviewed papers.

  • Christopher Booker: Britain Is Following Germany’s Path Of Green Energy Madness

    • Date: 30/10/16
    • Christopher Booker, The Sunday Telegraph

    Hollow laughter greeted the warning from Ed Davey that Britain is “sleepwalking” towards electricity blackouts. In his years in charge of our energy and climate-change policy, no one did more to ensure that we are heading for blackouts than the global warming-obsessed Davey himself. But all he was alarmed about, it seems, was a threat […]
