    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    Remember headlines like these? Puffin numbers on the remote Farne Islands are “stable”, despite early results of a  survey which prompted fears they could be struggling. The National Trust said rangers conducting the survey last May had thought initial low numbers on the outlying islands of the 28-island archipelago were due to the harsh winter […]

  • Disastrously Wrong: The BBC’s Disaster Scare Story

    Will the BBC rule against Roger Harrabin’s fatally flawed report? The BBC gave prominent coverage last week to a propaganda report from the Left-wing think tank, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR). It was called ‘This is a crisis: Facing up to the age of environmental breakdown’. Although the report covered the full range of […]

  • The Green New Deal And The Cost of Virtue

    Just six of AOC’s long list of aspirations would roughly cost some $2.5 trillion a year. A recent post looked at the dramatic tax hikes associated with Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s (AOC) so-called “Green New Deal.” But tax hikes constitute only part of what needs to be said about this proposal. It contains so much ambition – on climate […]

  • New Deals (Even Green Ones) Are Bonanzas For Crony Capitalism

    • Jonah Goldberg, National Review

    When the government hugs big business, big business hugs back, and its embrace leaves the rest of us in the cold. Amazon is taking its ball and going home, and New York Democrats are actually celebrating. I wasn’t a huge fan of the deal New York and Amazon worked out. I don’t like corporate welfare, […]

  • Climate Wars: Mann vs. Steyn Likely To Head To U.S. Supreme Court

    • Mark Stein

    Mark Steyn writes on his webpage: There was some modest activity yesterday in the Mann vs Steyn climate-change hockey-stick case, which will shortly be entering its eighth year. As that ludicrous fact testifies, it has been procedurally bollocksed by the District of Columbia courts, which is why it will almost certainly be headed to the Supreme Court. When […]

  • Extinction Rebellion? There Is Little Sign Of A Climate Emergency

    They were entirely sincere in their views. But I was shocked at how little they knew of the climate issues they were campaigning about.

  • The Green New Deal’s Disastrous First Week

    • Date: 14/02/19
    • Kyle Smith, National Review

    Somehow the Democrats managed to create a shiny, magical rainbow-colored unicorn and immediately impale themselves on it. How bad is the debut of the Green New Deal looking a week later? “Dead on arrival” makes it sound better than it is. It’s more like Zima meets Green Lantern times Bill Simmons’s HBO show. It’s such a disaster […]

    • Americans For Tax Reform

    This morning, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released an overview of the Democrat “Green New Deal” which threatens “a massive transformation of our society.” Below are the details of the proposal. Rebuild every single building in the U.S. “Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.” Will end all traditional forms of energy in the next […]
