    • John Constable & Gordon Hughes

    The UK government is engaging in increasingly implausible attempts to present the country’s economic and emissions record since 1990 as a proof of the existence of a viable model for low carbon prosperity based on recent policies, particularly renewables. In fact, if the UK record shows anything, it demonstrates that a continuation of the fuel […]

  • The Return Of Fracking Is A Victory For Common Sense

    • Date: 16/10/18
    • Ross Clark, The Spectator

    Now that fracking has resumed in Lancashire after a seven year hiatus, the green lobby which sought to frustrate it and delay it at every turn can reflect on what they have achieved: keeping the UK’s carbon emissions rather higher than they would have been, had our native fracking industry been allowed to develop more […]

    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    The details of the IPCC’s Special Report, Global Warming of 1.5℃, if thoughtfully read, should oblige policy makers to conclude that the obstacles to limiting global warming to this level, and indeed even to higher temperatures, are not just arbitrary blockages, rocks in the road to be removed, but fundamental and structural problems with the […]

    Wind and solar have become the fossils of the energy industry; oil, gas and coal remain the fuels of the future Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s repeal of the Green Energy Act and balks by premiers of other Canadian provinces at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s climate agenda aren’t rearguard moves by Donald Trump wannabes.

    Like an impetuous Prospero, President Trump stirs up tempests seemingly with little concern for the consequences.
