    Americans should not be stampeded into a disastrous climate crusade. By obligating the United States once more to the Paris agreement, and by signaling very clearly that “climate” will be central to its policies, the Biden administration has joined other governments in the crusade against a supposed “climate emergency.” We use the word “crusade” advisedly, since […]

  • Ross Clark: Net Zero’s spiralling costs will hit the poorest hardest

    As a lofty political idea, Net Zero has generated public support in the short term – but it could yet prove a devastating hostage to fortune as the full costs become apparent. How politically rewarding it must have seemed for Theresa May in one of her final acts as Prime Minister to amend the Climate Change […]

  • John O’Sullivan: Will the U.N. Security Council Rescue Net-Zero?

    • Date: 03/04/21
    • John O'Sullivan, The Pipeline

    The speeches calling for the UN Security Council to push a reluctant world to implement the hairshirt economic policy of Net-Zero are revealed as a dystopian delusion. Constructing and imposing an international orthodoxy is a never-ending task, especially when the orthodoxy imposes heavy costs on those countries and organizations that support it. That’s more clearly […]

    The Government faces its first real test of just how committed it is to “levelling up” the country. The future of Liberty Steel – with 12 UK plants and 3,000 workers – hangs in the balance. Eighteen months ago, the Tories were re-elected thanks to what would have been unthinkable in Mrs Thatcher’s day: winning […]

    The Tories’ Green Homes Grant scheme is yet another failure of green policymaking. This week, the UK government announced it would be scrapping the beleaguered Green Homes Grant scheme. Launched at the end of last summer, the scheme was intended to subsidise the retrofitting of homes, so as to make them energy-efficient and help the […]

  • Bjorn Lomborg: When climate alarmism meets cancel culture

    • Date: 24/03/21
    • Bjorn Lomborg, The Australian

    The academic and activist faction that sets the threatening tone in the climate conversation want dissent eliminated, leaving themselves the only ones authorised to tell you how scared you should be. To avoid wasting trillions, we should not let them. Across the world, politicians are now promising climate policies costing tens of trillions of dollars […]

    • Vijay Jayaraj, India

    India, the West’s most important geopolitical ally, will not concede its fossil fuel ambitions to the draconic carbon border taxes the G7 leaders intend to propose. The upcoming G7 summit in the UK will be the first-time international leaders meet physically after the COVID-19 pandemic year. The summit at Cornwall will see the G7 countries […]

    Once again Boris has let down the Red Wall seats he was elected to serve, this time with a U-turn on Cumbria’s planned mining project, announced last night. The Cumbria mine, we are told, “sends the wrong message” ahead of the COP26 UN climate summit in Glasgow this year. Indeed, cancelling might make for good […]
