    Strange goings-on at the Committee on Climate Change Back in May, readers may recall, the Committee on Climate Change put the annual cost of decarbonising the economy at “1-2% of GDP in 2050”.

    China and India will allow the west – led by the United States (US) and European Union (EU) – to destroy themselves through dysfunctional, domestic, and continent-wide politics. This isn’t a Donald Trump or EU issue, but electorates having a vague understanding of how societies function, particularly, when it comes to energy. The “Green New Deal” […]

    Russia has laid the groundwork to pressure the European Union with surging gas prices and supply shortages next year, but the longer a new gas crisis goes on, the greater the chance it will cost Russia dearly.

This third post in our series on the spurious links between climate change and extreme weather examines the […]
