• Guardian Super-Blogger Flames Reg Boffinry Desk

    • Date: 13/10/10

    Globally popular Guardian science correspondent Martin Robbins has initiated a public flame war with the Reg. This is our response. Earlier today, under the page title “The Register misrepresents climate science”, theGuardian ran this piece by Robbins, who blogs for the Graun under the title “The Lay Scientist” and who recently shot to world fame after writing this terrifically popular […]

  • Craig Fairnington: Can We Trust The IPCC’s Evidence?

    • Date: 10/10/10

    As people in the UK’s science community took to the streets yesterday over science cuts at the Science is Vital rally in London, elsewhere science itself is more mired in controversy. As we approach the 32nd session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), taking place next week in Busan, South Korea, the position of […]

  • Peter Foster: The Growing Fallout Of The Shale Revolution

    • Date: 09/10/10

    Alberta Energy Minister Ron Liepert said this week that Alaskan natural gas would likely flow through the province ahead of gas from the Mackenzie Delta. Not so long ago, such a statement would have been regarded as treasonable. Now it appears merely common economic sense. In fact, the real issue is whether either source of […]

  • 10:10 Splattergate: When Greenwashing Blows Up

    • Date: 06/10/10

    What happens when you attempt to promote climate change awareness by blowing up a few children?

    • Date: 04/10/10

    People who believe that humanity is heading towards destruction as a consequence of its misdeeds often take quiet pleasure in imagining the bloodshed to come. That, at least, is my explanation for Richard Curtis’s decision to make a short film for the 10:10 pressure group of climate change fanatics in which he depicted – with […]

  • Scotland’s Climate Folly

    • Date: 03/10/10

    LAST YEAR Holyrood, unanimously, passed the most restrictive “Climate Change” law in the world. Together with the closure of our nuclear plants this means that over the next 10 years we have to close down half, far and away the least expensive half, of our electricity production. This unanimity was largely reflected in the Scots media with […]

  • Is Windpower The Ethanol Of Electricity?

    • Date: 28/09/10

    Repeating past mistakes is an unfortunate but common part of federal policy, and perhaps no more so than with  energy. Indeed, much of the Obama administration’s “clean energy economy” and “energy independence” agenda is a virtual repeat of the follies from the 1970s – failed attempts by Washington to pick winners and losers amongst alternative […]
