    Government is itself the worst polluter, responsible for more serious environmental damage than any other single actor. Government wastes and destroys its own holdings, because it lacks the incentives of the true owner, insulated as it is from the attendant costs. The libertarian movement should have been the natural home of environmentalism. Robust, well-defined property rights […]

  • WSJ: Obama’s ‘Permanent’ Drilling Freeze Won’t Be Permanent

    The environmental lobby has moved on from reducing carbon demand—via subsidies for electric cars and solar panels—to opposing any carbon energy, and this is the opposition Mr. Trump will confront. The White House is attempting to overload the bandwidth of its successor with a surge of new regulation, and the latest is a ban on […]

    The election of Donald J. Trump to be the next president will soon enable congressional advocates of pro-growth energy policy to go on the offense for the first time in eight years—and they should, for the sake of our Constitution, among other things.

  • Richard Epstein: Obsolete Climate Science on CO2

    • Richard Epstein, Hoover Institution

    The benefits from present or future CO2 emissions are not included in social cost of carbon estimates. Yet a truly neutral assessment should include the benefits of CO2 emissions when a more comprehensive investigation is made. The incoming Trump administration has promised dramatic transformations on many vital domestic issues. The best gauge of this development is the fierce […]

    President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to nominate former Texas Governor Rick Perry to head the Department of Energy opens the door to U.S. energy independence in the near future — not to mention a growing economy, fueled by private-sector investment and high-paying jobs. In other words, a radical break from the past eight years of the […]

    • Megan McArdle, Bloomberg

    How many of the people who were horrified by the Trump transition team’s actions were equally horrified by this chilling move by government authorities to abrogate the free speech rights of climate sceptics?

    The sense of crisis gripping Australia’s outlook for renewable energy and electricity security underscores the extent to which we have lost sight of the longstanding bedrock of the nation’s climate change response: that it pass the national interest test.
