    As the prospect of thousands of steelworkers heading for the jobcentre comes closer, take a bow, David Cameron, Ed Miliband. In fact, congratulations on a brilliant job of industrial sabotage to all members of parliament who voted for unilateral decarbonisation. This is baffling. The entire British political class is on the point of achieving one […]

  • Matt Ridley: Race To Go Green Is Killing Heavy Industries

    If the government really wants to save energy-intensive industries, it must delay setting new emissions targets for the fifth carbon budget, as the climate change act entitles it to do. Before Redcar and Port Talbot, remember Lynemouth, where Britain’s last large aluminium smelter closed in 2012. In aluminium, as in steel, China is now by […]

    We have been here before. In late May 1975, George Thomson, one of Britain’s two European Commissioners, flew to Cardiff. There he announced that cheap loans from the European Commission would safeguard the jobs of Welsh steelworkers. No doubt the promise helped the Yes vote in the British EEC referendum, which just happened to be […]

  • How Is Britain Going Green? By Shutting Down Industry

    • Date: 30/03/16
    • Editorial, The Spectator

    The idea is that by making energy more expensive, people are encouraged to use less of it. This is working very effectively, as the soon-to-be-unemployed Welsh steelworkers will attest. If the plant closes, carbon emissions in Port Talbot will fall dramatically. A fortnight ago, the energy minister, Andrea Leadsom, declared grandly that Britain, alone in […]

    • Robert Bryce and Jonathan Lesser, Orange County Register

    If liberals in California and elsewhere were truly interested in the fortunes of the poor and the struggles of the middle class, they’d be striving to make energy cheaper.

Galileo Galilei was tried in 1633 for spreading the heretical view that the Earth orbits the sun, convicted by the Roman Catholic Inquisition, and remained under house arrest until his death. Today’s inquisitors seek their quarry’s imprisonment and financial ruin. As the scientific […]
