    The energy shortage that has been threatening for a decade is coming closer to reality Transfixed as you were by Westminster chaos, did you also spot the news that Hitachi is about to cancel or suspend construction of the Wylfa nuclear power station in North Wales?

    It is often claimed that 97 per cent of scientists conclude that humans are causing global warming. Is that really true? No. It is a zombie statistic. In the scientific circles I mix in, there is an overwhelming scepticism about human-induced climate change. Many of my colleagues claim that the mantra of human-induced global warming […]

    Carbon taxes are facing new troubles on the left even as the idea is beginning to slowly inch from the political wilderness on the right.

    In Bavaria, two gas-fired power plants of the latest generation stand around as investment ruins. Nevertheless, one of the operators wants to build a third one at the same location. This can only be understood against the background of the misguided German Energiewende. At the beginning of the year, the number of successful reports on […]

    Veteran marine scientist Walter Starck says generations of ­researchers have been schooled in a culture wherein threats to the Great Barrier Reef are an unquestionable belief from which all evidence is interpreted. A collage of 50 lionfish was supposed to dampen questions over concerns around the academic rigour of former star James Cook University research student […]
