    Poor Elton John. He’s ‘deeply distressed’. What’s happened to the filthy-rich national treasure? Well, some people were mean about his posh, rich mates using his private jet to fly to his swanky pad in the South of France. Can you believe the indignities celebrities have to endure? Us plebs with our once-a-year jaunts on Ryanair […]

  • How Green is St Greta’s Ark? Er, Not Very

    LAST Wednesday, in a blaze of unremittingly fawning publicity and uncritical adulation of which even Moses descending from Mount Sinai with the tablets bearing the Ten Commandments would have been envious, the good ship Mazilia – or, as I prefer to call it in view of its almost quasi-religious mission, ‘Greta’s Ark’ – set sail […]

  • For Climate Alarmists ‘Free Speech’ Exists Only For Them

    • Date: 20/08/19

    There’s a delicious irony in the fact those seeking to shut down opposing viewpoints on the issue of human-induced climate change have been hoist with their own petard. Because People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier doesn’t believe in human-induced climate change, environmental charities have been warned by Elections Canada that advertising that it’s real, […]

  • WSJ: A Kamikaze Climate Suit

    • Date: 18/08/19
    • Editorial, The Wall Street Journal

    Democratic states challenging the Trump Administration’s redo of the Obama CO2 emissions regulations should be careful what they sue for. Their lawsuit could backfire and undermine the Environmental Protection Agency’s power to regulate carbon emissions. Twenty-two Democratic state Attorneys General and seven cities this week asked the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to vacate the […]

  • There’s A Big Green Backlash Coming Our Way

    • Date: 16/08/19

    Consensus on the need for clean energy is likely to be overturned when voters feel the economic realities kicking in. Brexit, once fuzzy, is coming into focus. It will be clean, it will be hard, it will be red, white and blue. Will it, though, be green? The question is interesting because on October 31 […]

  • An Expensive Taste of the Zero-Carbon Future

    • Date: 12/08/19
    • Kathy Gyngell, The Conservative Woman

    We can’t say we weren’t warned. Mrs May’s legacy eco-lunacy – her net zero carbon policy by 2050 – is going to come at great cost.  The former Chancellor of the Exchequer forecast a trillion pounds but others are already predicting that this almost incomprehensible figure is an underestimate.  The question no one seems to […]

  • Charles Moore: Meet The BBC’s Anti-Meat Activist & His Fellow Eco-Zealots

    • Date: 10/08/19
    • Charles Moore, The Daily Telegraph

    Food will soon become the biggest crusade to purify the West from its prosperity and its pleasures. The headlines said things like “Eat less meat to save the earth, urges UN”. So naturally the public will believe this is what the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is saying in its latest report. But […]

  • An Establishment Rebellion

    Why the elite loves the eco-warriors. London’s Victoria and Albert Museum has acquired a number of artefacts associated with Extinction Rebellion (XR), the protest group campaigning to reduce Britain’s carbon emissions to ‘net zero’ by 2025. Apparently, just nine months since Extinction Rebellion’s first public stunt, its paraphernalia deserves to be housed alongside some of the […]
