    U.S. crude oil production is flirting with record highs heading into the new year, thanks to the technological nimbleness of shale oil drillers. The current abundance has erased memories of 1973 gas lines, which raised pump prices dramatically, traumatizing the United States and reordering its economy. In the decades since, presidents and politicians have made […]

    Bone-chilling cold gripped the middle of the U.S. as 2018 began Monday, breaking low temperature records, icing some New Year’s celebrations and leading to at least two deaths attributed to exposure to the elements.

    A well-meaning anti-pollution push turned into a debacle. Alternatives needed. Photographer: Kevin Frayer/Getty China is suffering from a frigid winter, but it can’t blame Mother Nature alone. Late last week, following a widespread uproar, officials reversed a policy banning some provinces from using coal for heat — which had the inadvertent but predictable effect of leaving large swathes […]

    A new ice age to look forward to? Can it be true? This is the best news I have heard all year (sic). I was half awake during the night this week, listening to the radio when the news item came on. I thought at first I was dreaming, but no. It turns out scientists […]

    While the Atlantic Basin experienced a very active tropical season in 2017, global activity was actually below-normal for the year by one type of measurement thanks to quiet seasons in the northern Pacific Ocean and throughout the Southern Hemisphere.

This began in October when Greenpeace and various wind companies plastered Westminster Underground station, the one […]

    There are signs of a more general backlash against the Somerset Island polar bear video.

    Shivering, snowbound cities are scrapping their outdoor New Year’s Eve countdowns. Polar-bear plunges are being canceled because of fears of frostbite and hypothermia. Winter-hardened towns are gaping at their new lows: 32 degrees below zero in Watertown, N.Y. Minus 36 in International Falls, Minn.
