    Listen to the greenies, and coal is killing the planet, a problem made worse by the election of Donald Trump. But as Geoff Hill discovered, it’s not that simple. If an iceberg had fallen from the sky, it wouldn’t have chilled the climate-change conference in Marrakech like news of the US election. More than 10 […]

  • Neil Collins: The Climate Change Act Must Go, Eventually

    • Date: 14/11/16
    • Neil Collins, Financial Times

    Only five MPs voted against the Climate Change Bill in September 2008. In an orgy of self-righteousness, parliament voted near-unanimously to cut the UK’s CO2 emissions by 80 per cent by 2050, a date which is past the deadline of at least half of the honourable members who supported it. Thus was laid the foundation […]

  • As Many As Half Of Global Warming Research Papers Might Be Wrong

    • Date: 13/11/16
    • Kerry Jackson, Investor's Business Daily

    The global warming alarmist community firmly believes it has science on its side. The science is settled, its members repeat incessantly to show how “sciency” they are, despite the fact that they are wrong. And 97% of scientists believe man’s carbon dioxide emissions are causing climate change, they say with great conviction, even though it’s […]

    • John Dizard, Financial Times

    • Donald van der Vaart, Secretary of North Carolina’s Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources

    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 […]

  • Obama’s Environmental Legacy Just Went Up in Smoke

    • Date: 10/11/16

    “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.

    • Matt Ridley, The Times

Yet last week the Zoological Society […]
