• Patrick Michaels: The death spiral of American academia

    • Date: 11/06/21
    • Patrick J Michaels, Climate Etc.

    In the academy the free interchange of competing ideas creates knowledge through cooperation, disagreement, debate, and dissent. Kaufmann’s landmark study proves that the last three in that list are severely suppressed and punished. The pervasiveness of such repression may be a death sentence for science, free inquiry, and the advancement of knowledge in our universities. […]

  • Truth or consequences: global warming consensus thinking and the decline of public debate

    • Date: 07/06/21
    • Geoffrey Weiss and Claude Roessiger, Climate Etc.

    The so-called debate about the causes and effects of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is a notable irony. Rather than a forum for free disputation, AGW has in recent years become the site of a consensus equating majority opinion with truth—leaving little, if any, room for debate. After all, doesn’t everyone but a misguided few agree […]

  • Ross Clark: The boiler ban fiasco and the true cost of net zero

    • Ross Clark, The Spectator

    How long before the target of making Britain net-zero by 2050 has to be dropped, or at least made non legally-binding?

    President Biden’s Earth Day announcement that the United States is to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 50% from 2005 levels (equivalent to a 42% cut of 2019’s pre-Covid emission levels) within nine years comes with a double deception – one of cause and the other of effect.
