• Nigel Lawson: Time For Plan B

    • Date: 21/12/09

    The Wall Street Journal: The world’s political leaders, not least President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Gordon Brown, are in a state of severe, almost clinical, denial.

  • Dominic Lawson: The Copenhagen farce is glad tidings for all

    • Date: 20/12/09

    The Sunday Times: After two weeks of increasingly ill-tempered negotiations, one of the European delegates at the Copenhagen summit “to save the planet” had clearly reached breaking point; or perhaps it was the ingratitude of the people he was trying to save that caused this negotiator to tell the BBC’s science correspondent, Susan Watts, that […]

    • Date: 14/12/09

    The Spectator:  I have no expertise on the subject of global warming; nor do I have a strong view about it.
