    Britain was the cradle of the Industrial Revolution. Are we going to turn our back on the country’s most promising source of energy and economic revival for the sake of some local traffic jams and picketing druids? The Government must keep up the pressure to ensure that the answer is “no”. Free to frack at […]

  • Green Ambition Puts South Australia In The Dark Ages

    Where is the old industrial Left when it’s needed? The communists merely wanted to take over the factories. The greenish Left wants to close them down. The climax last week of Labor’s 14-year campaign to de-industrialise the state of South Australia was less than triumphant. Premier Jay Weatherill’s oversized media machine was turning out cheerful […]

    Today, the question is how policymakers should react when the conventional wisdom is proven so spectacularly wrong, as is the case here. In 1957, Tulsa celebrated Oklahoma’s golden anniversary of statehood by placing in a concrete vault under the county courthouse a host of mid-20th century artifacts, including a 16mm movie, a six-pack of Schlitz better, […]

    Sometime in the next few hundred years, biotechnology will have advanced to the point where we can design and breed entire ecologies of living creatures adapted to survive in remote places away from Earth. I give the name Noah’s Ark culture to this style of space operation. An illustration of Freeman Dyson’s vision of ‘Noah’s […]

    A watershed case about democratic consent and the separation of powers. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals hears arguments Tuesday in a challenge to President Obama’s use of unilateral federal and executive power to impose his climate agenda. The case is a watershed for the Constitution’s separation of powers that will echo well beyond this […]

  • Ivo Vegter: History Keeps Proving Prophets Of Eco-Apocalypse Wrong

    The ability to make accurate predictions is a hallmark of good science. Predictions by environmental doom-mongers have proven to be wrong time and time again. No wonder most people no longer believe them. If we do not reverse global warming by the year 2000, “entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea […]

  • Let’s Ditch Hinkley Point And HS2 To Get More Bang For Our Bucks

    • Date: 19/09/16
    • Liam Halligan, The Sunday Telegraph

    After years of negotiations, posturing and pencil-sucking, plus a final review by our new Prime Minister, the construction of a new nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point has been approved. I think that was wrong. My reasons have little to do with the major role overseas interests will play in developing the UK’s first new nuclear station […]

    • Date: 19/09/16
    • Brendan O'Neill, The Spectator

    Prepare the stake, stoke the fire: someone has blasphemed against climate-change orthodoxy. The speech criminal in question is Nicolas Sarkozy. Yes, the former president of France, a man who really ought to know better, has wondered out loud if mankind is solely responsible for climate change. Cue media fury. Cue eco-outrage. Cue accusations that Sarkozy has gone […]
