    I received a puzzling email from a doctor last week. It was headed ‘Climate Change’ and warned: ‘Your paps needs a dementia screening soon.’ Because of climate change? Not exactly. Juergen Messner — that was the sender’s name — was referring to an interview my father Nigel Lawson had just given to the BBC, in […]

    A split may be developing on the ‘warmist’ side, between what we might call the ‘extremists’ and the ‘moderates’. In many ways, the climate debate has hardly changed since I got interested in it about ten years ago. Public opinion wobbles up and down with hardly any real change. The same tired arguments and claims come […]

    Imagine a sausage factory – the luckiest, most profitable sausage factory in the world. Its machines crank out their sausages, and lorries carry them to supermarkets. So far, so normal. But this particular factory makes as many sausages as the management and staff choose. If they feel like taking the day off, the lorries and […]

    A five-strong advisory panel assisting Dieter Helm with a UK government-commissioned review into energy costs will only have time to meet a handful of times because of a tight deadline.

    Some of the largest non-polar glaciers in the world are either stable or growing due to a “vortex” of cold air over a 1,200-mile section of the greater Himalayan mountain range in central Asia, according to a new study. Climate models haven’t been able to reproduce the phenomenon, which is keeping Karakoram mountain range glaciers […]

    Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt said his staff will gauge the “accuracy” of a major federal science report that blames human activity for climate change — just days after researchers voiced their fears to The New York Times that the Trump administration would alter or suppress its findings. “Frankly this report ought to be subjected to […]

    Lord Lawson has been strongly criticised for his attack on An Inconvenient Sequel, the latest scaremongering climate change film by Al Gore, but he is right to say our energy bills could be reduced if we cut out bogus green fuel taxes. Following Lord Lawson’s Radio 4 interview on the Today programme, the Green Party […]

    Al Gore was skewered by a BBC radio host for his doomsday rhetoric on climate change and the state of the planet. Justin Webb put it to the environmentalist and former US vice president that he was “joining the dots” and making claims that were “going further” than scientists would.Mr Gore has hit out at […]
