• The Impossible Net Zero Fantasy

    • Willis Eschenbach, Watts Up With That

    After reading some information at Friends of Science, I got to thinking about how impossible it will be for us to do what so many people are demanding that we do. This is to go to zero CO2 emissions by 2050 by getting off of fossil fuels. So let’s take a look at the size of the […]

  • Peter Ridd’s heretical manifesto

    • Date: 24/01/21

    I found Peter Ridd’s book about the Great Barrier Reef, and the poor state of quality control in science, to be both refreshing and complimentary. Refreshing because here is a scientist who actually talks about ‘The Science’. Complimentary because here is a scientist who treats the average person of general education as someone who just […]

  • EU’s Carbon Border Taxes and Joe Biden’s Clean Energy plans: A double threat for developing countries

    The introduction of the European Union’s Carbon Border Taxes and Joe Biden’s announcement of Clean Energy plans has raised double alarm in developing countries. The new European Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) law will impact all countries exporting to EU, especially those countries without carbon pricing mechanisms. Countries like India, China, Indonesia, Philippines, and even […]

  • Does China pose a threat to global ‘Rare Earth’ supply chains?

    • China Power

    As China’s domestic consumption of rare earths grows, the country will be increasingly reliant on imports to feed its appetite for the materials. China already became the world’s largest importer of rare earths in 2018, and it is expected to become a net importer by the middle of the decade. Under these conditions, Beijing’s influence […]

    Few people, I fear, have spotted the very large bomb that may be about to be planted beneath the housing market. Last week, the government’s Climate Change Committee published its ‘Sixth Carbon Budget’ recommending what it thinks the government needs to do in order to meet its target of achieving net zero carbon emissions by […]

  • US Democrats consider ‘climate emergency’ to bypass US Senate

    • Date: 23/12/20
    • Andrew Stuttaford, National Review

    Whether it’s through their attempts of “legislation” by regulation, litigation, or the pressure of Wall Street’s corporatists, the climate warriors have long shown an interest in bypassing the usual democratic procedures in order to get their agenda through, and there is no doubt that some of the coercive measures that have been put in place […]

    • Date: 21/12/20
    • Jennifer Marohasy

    Despite a plethora of history and data suggesting that ideas should always be tested, we live during a time when it is so unfashionable to ask the hard questions.  I am so privileged to have written the introduction to Peter Ridd’s new book, ‘Reef Heresy?’. In it I explain that it is of great concern to […]

  • Electric car turmoil will make Brexit a comparative breeze for auto makers

    • Date: 19/12/20
    • Neil Winton, Forbes

    Unless the price of electric cars falls drastically, Europeans on average salaries are unlikely to be able to afford new cars. Automakers are having hysterics about the impact on their sales and profits if the European Union (EU) and Britain fail to agree a free trade deal, but the ramifications of that look minor compared […]
