• Rupert Darwall: Growth Will Be A Thing Of The Past If Businesses Choose ‘Net Zero’

    • Date: 07/03/20
    • Rupert Darwall, The Hill

    Investors more obsessed with climate than investor returns, who bully corporations into adopting net-zero business strategies, are doing more than destroying shareholder value. They are destroying the capitalist growth machine. Pledging “net zero” by 2050 to achieve compliance with the Paris Agreement on climate change is all the rage in the corporate world. BP has announced that […]

  • Boris Beware: The Political Storm Over Green Targets Will Be Even Bigger Than Brexit

    • Date: 05/03/20
    • Sherelle Jacobs, The Daily Telegraph

    People did not vote to take back control only to surrender to an even more imperious and destructive strain of metropolitan ideology. Just when we thought the war was over, it is starting to dawn on some London hacks that it has only just begun. Beyond the Red Wall are rumblings of a new revolt, utterly […]

  • Christopher Booker: The Tyranny Of Groupthink

    • Date: 01/03/20
    • Christopher Booker, Mail on Sunday

    Janis adapted Groupthink from a thinly disguised picture of life in Stalin’s Soviet Union, where the sense of a ‘group mind’, personified in ‘Big Brother’, was ruthlessly reinforced by means of endlessly repeated slogans, and ritualised ‘hate sessions’ directed at anyone daring to dissent in any way from the party’s line. Chosen as Word of the […]

  • Melanie Phillips: It’s Ministers Not Judges Who Are Skidding Off The Policy Runway

    What’s stopping this third runway is not the courts – it’s the government itself which, as a result of the environmental derangement to which it has fallen victim, is now skidding off the runway of reason altogether. The Court of Appeal’s ruling over Heathrow airport’s mooted third runway has reignited in some quarters the already […]

  • No More Air Travel is What Net Zero Means

    • Harry Wilkinson, GWPF Head of Policy

    No-one can be surprised at the judges’ decision to block a third runway at Heathrow. Collectively, the country has failed to grasp the implications of deep decarbonisation. Many people will regard the decision to block a third runway at Heathrow as an unwelcome intrusion of judges into our democratic system. They will be bemused that […]

    • Date: 23/02/20
    • Editorial, The Wall Street Journal

    Bernie Sanders is riding the intellectual currents that the Democratic Party and its elites have nurtured. Bernie Sanders’s victory in New Hampshire on top of his tie in Iowa makes him a favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination. Hard to believe, but in a winnable race against President Trump the opposition may nominate a socialist […]

    • Date: 22/02/20
    • Melanie Phillips

    The “climate emergency”, which we are told threatens the imminent collapse of civilisation and the extinction of humanity, is a dogma being enforced by a culturally totalitarian tyranny. Threatening the living standards of millions, permitting no challenge and wrecking the livelihoods and reputations of any who dares dissent, it has been created by a repudiation […]

  • The Sun Warns Boris: Punishing Hard-Working Brits By Hiking Fuel Tax Is A Sure Way To Lose Votes

    • Date: 21/02/20
    • Editorial, The Sun

    Punishing hard-working people for going about their daily business is a sure way to haemorrhage votes. For smart city types blessed with excellent transport links, the increase would be a nuisance. But for the Prime Minister’s new wave of voters who switched to Tory — ordinary grafters living in towns and villages — it’d be […]
