    The abject failure of Malthusianism was one of the defining trends of 2015, especially in the oil market. It is one of life’s mysteries that being wrong about everything has never been much of a barrier to success. Take Thomas Malthus, the British theologian: his big idea was that the number of human beings would […]

    Amid all the devastation and recrimination over the floods in Cumbria hardly anybody mentions one factor that may not be the sole cause, but certainly hasn’t helped, and that is the almost complete cessation of dredging of our rivers since we were required to accept the European Water Framework Directive (EWF) into UK law in […]

    The U.S. keeps soldiering on, but the toothless Paris deal will let EU nations end harmful carbon policies.   Amid the media’s elation over the United Nations climate deal reached in Paris on Dec. 12, one significant outcome has been overlooked. The European Union failed to achieve its main objective, namely that the agreement adopt carbon-dioxide mitigation […]

    Retired NASA scientist James Hansen, America’s leading carbon abolitionist, indelicately called the whole Paris deal “bulls—.” He’s right.
