There are better options elsewhere Last week the British and French governments announced that they remained confident that the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset will be built. But EDF, the company that wishes to build it, declined […]

    The slow-motion train crash of Britain’s energy policy gets nearer to the abyss with every week that passes. Consider a few facts. On the windless afternoon of February 25, the contribution being made to keeping our lights on by our 6,600 absurdly subsidised wind turbines was less than 0.4 per cent – four-thousandths of all […]

  • Editorial: The Doctored Science Of Global Warming

    • Date: 04/03/16
    • Editorial, The Washington Times

    Science must be free from pressure to validate political goals. If findings and measurements are altered to serve a political agenda, the findings are flawed. It’s called fraud, and should be punished. Pure science undertaken for science’s own sake is as rare as a rainbow. It’s certainly scarce in Washington, where the quest for knowledge […]

    • Editorial, Investors' Business Daily

    With crude at $30 and natural gas at $1.70 (down from $14 in 2007), news pages are full of stories about tough times in the Oil Patch. But the media have been almost conspiratorially quiet on the financial collapse of green energy for the same reason. Consider a just-released study by University of Chicago researchers […]

    Billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer has spent millions of dollars trying to make climate change a major issue on the 2016 campaign trail.

  • Lawrence Solomon: Debunking The Penguin Climate Panic

    • Date: 23/02/16
    • Lawrence Solomon, Financial Post

    It’s a familiar theme. Global warming is killing off penguins, just as it decimates polar bears, spreads deserts, acidifies oceans, triggers hurricanes and gets fingered for most every other plague to visit the Earth. No one found 150,000 penguin carcasses so there’s no reason to think they died. “150,000 penguins have disappeared in Antarctica.

  • Paris Climate Agreement Is Completely Toothless And Unenforceable

    • Date: 22/02/16
    • The American Interest

    We knew in the run-up to the Paris summit that any deal reached would be little more than a green version of the Kellogg-Briand pact, and now we’re seeing that in action. The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision last week to order the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to suspend its regulation to cut emissions from power plants — […]
