    Nasa satellite data shows that globally the amount of land burned in wildfires fell by a quarter between 1998 and 2015 – not that you would know from hysterical reporting and the lazy assertion, made by Greta Thunberg and others, that the “Earth is on fire”.

    Little of this made the news, because good news is no news Let nobody tell you that the second decade of the 21st century has been a bad time. We are living through the greatest improvement in human living standards in history. Extreme poverty has fallen below 10 per cent of the world’s population for […]

  • Charles Moore: Time To Abolish The Monstrous BBC Poll Tax

    Following his electoral triumph, Boris Johnson has his eyes on the BBC licence fee. He would like to replace it eventually. His interim thought is to decriminalise non-payment.

    The scaremongers’ favourite doomsday climate scenario is in trouble. Environmental correspondents make a good living from scare stories. In the case of the BBC’s Matt McGrath, doubly so: as well as his BBC salary, he was recently the recipient of a €100,000 award from the green blob for his work. A prize “pour encourager les […]
