    Think the rest of the U.S. will avoid electricity shortages of the kind that have led to rolling blackouts recently in California? Don’t bet on it. Not enough baseload power from fossil fuel and nuclear plants and an increasing reliance on intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar across the country are likely […]

    Environmentalists would have you know that we have now set aside some 15% of the world’s surface for conservation. That’s wonderful, of course, but it turns out that they have missed (or perhaps not) a rather more important saviour of the world’s wild places. The identity of this greatest of environmental heroes is revealed by […]

    Green technologies that were known money-losers before the pandemic are still money-losers today There’s a curious idea floating around that the COVID crisis undid the principles of economics. Nobody puts it exactly like that, but it’s implied in the various proposals for restructuring the post-pandemic economy so that it will look very different from the […]

    With the data now showing unequivocally that the cost of offshore wind is not in precipitous decline, I found myself wondering about all those (ahem) colourful characters who have spent the last ten years trying to persuade everyone that it is. And I thought about the Committee on Climate Change, who pushed the technology hard […]

    • Editorial, The Wall Street Journal

    Anti-fossil fuel mandates are leading to electricity shortages Electricity blackouts are awful at any time, but especially during an extreme heat wave and for reasons that are man-made.

    As the US has emerged as the world’s leading oil and gas producer, the energy and climate policies adopted by the next US administration will profoundly influence global economic and geopolitical affairs.
