• Memo To Climate Scientists: It’s Capitalism That Will Save The World

    • Date: 29/12/17
    • Harry Wilkinson, The Conservative Woman

    Looking at the vexed issue of climate change as a matter of ‘science’ alone is a mistake. Environmental policy has been constructed on an anti-capitalist basis which views the free market to be essentially destructive. This flawed perspective has had terrible consequences for both people and the environment.   The fashionable view has been that […]

    Another rebuke to climate change rule by executive diktat.

    Obama’s EPA used semantic tricks to avoid rigorous scientific evaluation. Is Trump’s EPA more honest? Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt is mulling over how, or whether, to respond to demands from climate skeptics that he reexamine the science that obligates the EPA to issue costly carbon-emission regulations. While he has recently acknowledged that agency […]

    Global cereal (grain) production has reached record levels in 2017. Credit for the increase usually goes to agrochemicals and other advanced agricultural technology. However, there are two other key contributors — carbon dioxide and climate change. World cereal production for 2017 is projected to reach 2,613.3 million tons, 5.8 million tons above 2016’s level and nearly one-fourth […]

    • Date: 13/12/17
    • Margaret Wente, The Globe and Mail

    Wild exaggerations and scare stories are not just bad for science. They’re bad for all of the environmentalists who want to win over the goodwill of the public. Most people are concerned about climate change – but they’re also rightly skeptical about activists who cry “wolf” (or, in this case, “polar bear.”) Fake news for […]

    Low oil prices have so eroded Arab states’ power, they now see Israel as a protector. Whatever you think of President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, it points to the most important strategic reality in the Middle East: Arab power has collapsed in the face of low oil prices and competition from […]

  • Academic Lawfare Is Killing Trust In Climate Science

    • Date: 09/12/17
    • Editorial, Investor's Business Daily

    Whatever the intent of these lawsuits, the effect is to chill scientific research and debate. Scientists will think twice about challenging any aspect of climate science if the result could be an expensive lawsuit. We keep hearing how climate change is “settled science,” even though science is never settled. But if it were, why are […]
