    It takes a certain mulish obstinacy to keep insisting that it’s capitalism and free markets which are responsible for, rather than the answer to, the coming Eco-Götterdämmerung. But that’s what we’re treated to from George Monbiot this morning. His argument is that capitalism requires growth, growth destroys the environment by consuming it and therefore….well, therefore it’s all […]

  • The Green Inquisition: Canada Now Investigates ‘Climate Denial’

    • Date: 14/09/17

    It’s like something out of George Orwell’s 1984. Canada’s Competition Bureau, an arm’s length agency funded by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government to the tune of almost $50 million annually, investigated three organizations accused of denying mainstream climate science for over a year, following a complaint from an environmental group. The bureau discontinued its 14-month […]

    We have gone from having close to the cheapest electricity in the world to among the most ­expensive. We have all the feeder stock we need — coal, gas and uranium — yet electricity prices have doubled in a decade.

    Extreme weather is less of a threat than it ever has been. When Hurricane Harvey landed on Texas, it marked the end of a 12-year lull in major hurricanes hitting the US. This period – which also featured a long ‘hiatus’ in global warming, the failure of ice-free Arctic predictions and the growth of polar-bear […]

  • Matt Ridley: We Are More Than A Match For Hurricanes

    Whether or not tropical storms are becoming fiercer, our growing wealth and ingenuity helps us to survive them As Hurricane Irma batters Florida, with Anguilla, Barbuda and Cuba clearing up and Houston drying out after Harvey, it is reasonable to ask whether such tropical cyclones are getting more frequent or fiercer. The answer to the […]

  • Hurricane Irma’s Numbers Simply Do Not Add Up

    • Christopher Booker, The Daily Telegraph

    Terrible though the deaths and damage caused by Hurricane Irma may be, the way it has been reported makes one wonder whether, after more than 10 years that have seen Atlantic hurricane activity at its lowest level for decades, everyone has forgotten what these monster tropical storms are like. The media have gone way over the top, […]

    Scientivists and politicians are fond of trying to blame the Syrian crisis on climate change. President Obama and his sidekick John Kerry are among the most prominent figures to repeat the claim, but they are merely at the top of a long list that includes lesser names like Ban-ki Moon and Jean-Claude Juncker and continues […]

  • Despite Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Science Has No Idea If Climate Change Is Causing More (Or Fewer) Powerful Hurricanes

    • Date: 07/09/17
    • Ross McKitrick, Washington Examiner

    When opinion writers tacitly assume all good weather is natural and greenhouse gases only cause bad weather, or claim to be able to predict future storms, but only after they have already occurred, I reserve the right to call their science unsettled. After Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, it didn’t take long for climate alarmists to […]
