    Britain’s green energy policy has been a significant policy failure. In August the government commissioned the Oxford academic Dieter Helm to conduct an independent review into Britain’s energy market. At the time it was thought by some to be an alternative to the government’s manifesto commitment to impose a price cap on domestic energy bills. […]

  • The BBC’s Very Selective Regret

    You can safely bet that the BBC will never apologise for grotesque breaches of its legal obligation to report only with “accuracy and impartiality” when it comes to green energy. The BBC last week won headlines for its “apology” that an interviewer on Radio Four’s Today programme had failed to challenge a rather reckless claim by […]

    The parallels between the two environmental frenzies are many, but the stakes are much higher now. A majority of scientists might say a scientific theory is true, but that doesn’t mean the consensus is reliable. The science underpinning environmental claims can be fundamentally wrong—as it was in one of the biggest environmental scares in recent […]

    With weary inevitability, the BBC has decided that it is going to issue an apology after a sceptic – Nigel Lawson in this case – was allowed a rare opportunity to state their case on the airwaves.  This is starting to be something of a ritual for the corporation. Once in a month of Sundays, a […]

  • Matt Ridley: War Against Chemicals Is A Shame On Science

    • Matt Ridley, The Times

    The glyphosate story is a scandal, of the kind that would be front-page news if it happened in industry, rather than a branch of WHO. But the BBC has not covered the Reuters story.
