    This article explores how dreams of an eco-dictatorship have arisen out of a context of declining faith in liberal democracy and liberal capitalism to cope with environmental crisis. Introduction In academic literature and political thought, Senegal is often heralded as being “exceptional” in terms of its democratic style of governance. Imagine the surprise, then, of […]

    Britain’s Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson’s warning that the Russian Bear is sizing up the UK’s energy infrastructure  is important as it brings long overdue attention to a troubling drift in UK energy policy. Britain’s electricity market is increasingly slanted in favour of importing more electricity from Europe and against securing investment in new power plants at […]

    India should turn away from the Paris accord as latest research shows particles from space affect climate on Earth more than human activity. Over the years this column has been supporting the theory of ‘cosmo-climatology’ propounded by Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark and his associates for climate change, over the alternative theory of anthropogenic CO2 (carbon dioxide) […]

  • Matt Ridley: Technology Will Help the Environment Flourish

    Michael Gove’s 25-year Environment Plan makes a promising start towards recognising that environmental improvements are achieved mainly by people on the ground such as farmers and gamekeepers rather than commanded by officials in offices, but it needs to go further in this direction. Science, technology and innovation must be encouraged to deliver better environmental outcomes. They […]

    Environmentalists should spend less time on social media and more time in the forest. They might then learn that protecting birds is more important than virtue signaling. If you’re wondering why the debate over the environment is as stagnant as the air on a sultry July day, think about the tactics the environmentalists have used […]

    • George Will, National Review

    A new study looks at the diminishing role of facts and analysis in public life. It cannot be a sign of social health that the number of tweets per day worldwide exploded from 5,000 in 2007 to 500 million six years later. And this might be related, by a few degrees of separation, to the […]

    • Holman W. Jenkins, Jr, The Wall Street Journal

    It is important for today’s liberals to create a smoke-and-mirrors sideshow over issues like climate change because they have no agenda.
