    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. Will Moscow or Brussels blink first? As Europe is sweating out yet another hot summer, energy executives and […]

    It’s clear that the frequency of landfalling hurricanes of any strength (categories 1 through 5) hasn’t changed in the nearly 50 years since 1970 – during a time when the globe warmed by approximately 0.6 degrees Celsius. This third post in our series on the spurious links between climate change and extreme weather examines the […]

    David Whitney’s Maladies of Modernity: Scientism and the Deformation of Political Order is a thoughtful, timely examination of the origins of scientism, and its continued impact on contemporary political science. Whitney traces the origins of scientism to the time of the emergence of modern science in the early Enlightenment. Though science and scientism are not equivalent, they […]

    Scientists have barely scratched the surface of the task of recognising and modelling natural cycles of climate change. Sand deposits near the Gobi Desert in China may seem a strange place to look for evidence that cosmic rays can control how clouds are formed and the impact they have on Earth’s climate. But Japanese scientists […]

    German airline Lufthansa expects passenger numbers to rise about four per cent this year, its chief executive said yesterday, playing down talk that public support for teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg might be curbing air travel. “At this time, we don’t see restraint – in fact, the opposite,” Carsten Spohr told the NZZ Am Sonntag […]

    A new paper published by researchers form the University of Turku in Finland suggests that even though observed changes in the climate are real, the effects of human activity on these changes are insignificant. The team suggests that the idea of man made climate change is a mere miscalculation or skewing the formulas by the […]

    The Committee on Climate Change has been accused of ‘rank hypocrisy’ after sending staff on taxpayer-funded international flights that pump out greenhouse gases. The quango’s personnel have flown to destinations such as Edinburgh, Turin and Bonn rather than opting for greener alternatives. The revelations come just days after committee chairman Lord Deben – formerly Tory Environment Secretary […]
