  • Charles Moore: There Are Ways To Help The British Steel Industry

    We have been here before. In late May 1975, George Thomson, one of Britain’s two European Commissioners, flew to Cardiff. There he announced that cheap loans from the European Commission would safeguard the jobs of Welsh steelworkers. No doubt the promise helped the Yes vote in the British EEC referendum, which just happened to be […]

    There are signs of green economic turmoil everywhere. What’s green and clean is turning catastrophic. Green and clean, that’s how politicians all over the world like to describe their national energy profiles. From Europe to North America to China, action plans and policies are in place, subsidies have been dispersed and new ideas are in […]

  • How Is Britain Going Green? By Shutting Down Industry

    • Date: 30/03/16
    • Editorial, The Spectator

    The idea is that by making energy more expensive, people are encouraged to use less of it. This is working very effectively, as the soon-to-be-unemployed Welsh steelworkers will attest. If the plant closes, carbon emissions in Port Talbot will fall dramatically. A fortnight ago, the energy minister, Andrea Leadsom, declared grandly that Britain, alone in […]

  • Renewable Energy Mandates Same As A Tax On The Poor

    If liberals in California and elsewhere were truly interested in the fortunes of the poor and the struggles of the middle class, they’d be striving to make energy cheaper.

  • The Battle For Free Speech In Science Has Begun

    • David B. Rivkin Jr. and Andrew M. Grossman, The Wall Street Journal

    The inquisition of those breaking from the climate “consensus” must be stopped. Galileo Galilei was tried in 1633 for spreading the heretical view that the Earth orbits the sun, convicted by the Roman Catholic Inquisition, and remained under house arrest until his death.

    • Date: 23/03/16
    • John Merline, Investor's Business Dauily

    It is certainly possible that today’s climate change paradigm — and all the fear and loathing about CO2 emissions — could one day end up looking as quaint as Ptolemy’s theory of the solar system or Galen’s theory of anatomy. What could the theory of “ego depletion” possibly have to do with global warming? Ego […]

  • Christopher Booker: Britain’s Crazy Energy Policy Just Got Madder Still

    • Date: 20/03/16
    • Christopher Booker, The Sunday Telegraph

    Just when we think the world can’t get any madder, along comes something to show that we haven’t yet seen the half of it (who, three years ago, could have predicted the rise of Isil or Donald Trump?). Another such moment came last Monday when our energy minister Andrea Leadsom told MPs that the Government […]
