    Sorry folks, the world will still be overwhelmingly fossil-fuelled in 2030 Every year, the International Energy Agency (IEA) produces a World Energy Outlook (WEO) that tries to obscure the fact that the great green transition isn’t happening.

    If the U.S. ‘re-joins’ the Paris climate treaty America’s energy and economic policy will become subject to a U.N. climate “conciliation commission.” It now appears  possible, should Joe Biden win the upcoming election, that as soon as January the United States will rejoin the 2015 Paris climate agreement, which commits us to adopt the “Green New Deal” […]

    How to do environmentalism, and how not to do environmentalism A tragic dissonance has emerged in most popular climate arguments: a childlike refusal of accepting the lesser of two evils, of trading off one goal for another.
