    Imagine that there is a new scientific theory that warns of an impending crisis, and points to a way out. This theory quickly draws support from leading scientists, politicians and celebrities around the world. Research is funded by distinguished philanthropies, and carried out at prestigious universities. The crisis is reported frequently in the media. The […]

    The protection of the environment from pollution is important for our health and for future generations.

    Since the fall of communism, global warming has been, without question, the most potent weapon in the hands of those who wish to control the behaviour of their fellow human beings. Late last year, I gave a talk about human progress to an audience of college students in Ottawa, Canada. I went through the usual […]

  • Rupert Darwall: The Hinkley Point Fiasco Doesn’t Bode Well For Brexit

    Whatever one’s views on Brexit, the poor judgement displayed on Hinkley, particularly that of the Chancellor, suggests that Britain can’t but be heading for a bad Brexit deal.

    Scaremongering is what Gore does best, and fear is the business model that has made him rich, though his every apocalyptic scenario has failed to materialise.

    If you honestly believe that climate change will end all life on Earth (it won’t) or lead to some dystopian hell, what policies wouldn’t you endorse to stop it? One of the hallmarks of the “Ugly American” is the habit of thinking foreigners will understand what you’re saying if you just shout it louder and […]

    Despite the best efforts of environmentalists to asphyxiate the fossil fuel industry, the United States has unexpectedly emerged as the world’s leading energy producer—and we owe it to old-fashioned American innovation.
