    The liberalised energy markets introduced by Nigel Lawson in 1982, embraced by the Blair government and emulated across Europe, delivered both affordability and reliability. But they were abandoned. All three parties share the blame for Britain’s policy fiasco. Shortly before parliament broke up this month, there was a debate on a Lords select committee report […]

  • In The Fight Between Rick Perry And Climate Scientists — He’s Winning

    • Date: 29/07/17
    • Ross McKitrick, The Hill

    Policy makers and the public need to understand the extent to which major scientific institutions like the American Meteorological Society have become biased and politicized on the climate issue. Convincing them of this becomes much easier when the organizations themselves supply the evidence. This happened recently in response to a CNBC interview with Energy Secretary Rick Perry. […]

    Since the fall of communism, global warming has been, without question, the most potent weapon in the hands of those who wish to control the behaviour of their fellow human beings. Late last year, I gave a talk about human progress to an audience of college students in Ottawa, Canada. I went through the usual […]

  • Rupert Darwall: The Hinkley Point Fiasco Doesn’t Bode Well For Brexit

    • Date: 20/07/17
    • Rupert Darwall, CapX

    Whatever one’s views on Brexit, the poor judgement displayed on Hinkley, particularly that of the Chancellor, suggests that Britain can’t but be heading for a bad Brexit deal.
