    Retired vicar, Reverend Michael Roberts, has scored a little victory. He challenged the myths promoted by environmentalist campaigners, Friends of the Earth (FoE) and won.

    Green subsidy fraud is rampant in China. To curb heavy pollution, China has spent billions on green-vehicle subsidies—$4.5 billion last year alone—propelling electric and plug-in hybrid auto sales to quadruple in 2015 and soar 60% this year.

    • The American Interest

    We’re headed towards the worst-case scenario for the world’s petrostates, where they agree to cede market share to gain higher oil prices, only to see American shale companies jump on the opportunity and take that share of the market for themselves while simultaneously blunting the rebound.
