    The more open Europe’s energy market, the less traction for Russia. At a meeting in Moscow on Jan. 14, the European Commission’s vice president for energy union, Maros Sefcovic, was surprised to hear the head of Gazprom, Aleksei Miller, declare that if the Europeans want continued access to the Russian natural gas that is currently piped through Ukraine, […]

  • Matt Ridley: Giving Up On Shale Would Be A Big Mistake

    With oil prices so cheap and scaremongers in full cry, it might be tempting to forget shale. That would be a big mistake I don’t know about you, but I have been especially glad of my gas-fired central heating and hot water in the past few frigid weeks. Gas really is rather special: it provides […]

  • The Fiddling With Temperature Data Is The Biggest Science Scandal Ever

    • Date: 08/02/15
    • Christopher Booker, The Sunday Telegraph

    New data shows that the “vanishing” of polar ice is not the result of runaway global warming When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were […]

  • How Green And Peaceful Really Is Greenpeace?

    • Date: 05/02/15
    • Andrew Montford, The Spectator

    Hypocrisy among the green fraternity is nothing new, but word that Greenpeace is also willing to play fast and loose with the facts is now starting to get around. For the best part of half a century Greenpeace’s constant campaigning on environmental issues has been an almost unmitigated success. Its effectiveness has brought it both […]

    Four fifths of Scottish households are utterly reliant on gas heating, and the remaining fifth are in the most extreme fuel poverty in Europe.

    Threatened by low oil prices, Putin is covertly supporting anti-frackers and spreading propaganda.   As a senior archivist for the KGB’s foreign-intelligence directorate, Vasili Mitrokhin had access to a treasure trove of information. He unveiled those secrets after defecting to Britain in 1992. One such secret concerned the “active measures” — the lies –  the KGB had used against […]

  • Bjorn Lomborg: The Alarming Thing About Climate Alarmism

    • Date: 03/02/15
    • Bjorn Lomborg, The Wall Street Journal

    Exaggerated, worst-case claims result in bad policy and they ignore a wealth of encouraging data. It is an indisputable fact that carbon emissions are rising—and faster than most scientists predicted. But many climate-change alarmists seem to claim that all climate change is worse than expected.    This ignores that much of the data are actually […]

  • Reality Check: The Passion For Climate Change Cools

    • Date: 03/02/15
    • Editorial, The Washington Times

    Climate change is becoming a hard sell. When the computer models get the next day’s forecast wrong, it’s hard to persuade anyone to pay attention to their predictions of what the Earth’s climate will be a half-century from now. Saving the world from imaginative calamity and catastrophe is never easy, and President Obama came away […]
