    It sounds like a news report out of yet another dystopian novel: Mexico is halting grid connection for new solar and wind power projects. In a world rushing to produce clean energy, Mexico has suddenly stood out like a sore thumb. But, as usual, there’s more to the story. The country’s National Energy Control Center, […]

    Noami Seibt agrees that human activity is a factor in global warming, but believes that impact has been overstated. She rejects the notion that she’s a climate change denier, saying critics use the label as “a way to shut down people on the other side”.

    We need to know if safety considerations at Boeing took a back seat to producing a climate-friendly plane.  When Swedish eco-pessimist Greta Thunberg came to New York to shout, “How dare you!” last month, she maintained her climate purity by traveling on a carbon-neutral, solar-powered yacht. Now that she’s in Canada, the teen doomsayer hasn’t explained how […]

    There’s no guarantee scientific research is credible or accurate just because it has been peer-reviewed. Why is Facebook promoting this lie? Much of what we read, online and elsewhere, is incorrect. That’s life. But Facebook, a platform that helps people socialize, thinks it’s in the business of setting the record straight. It calls this process […]

    Study finds even the tallest ice cliffs should support their own weight rather than collapsing catastrophically. Antarctica’s ice sheet spans close to twice the area of the contiguous United States, and its land boundary is buttressed by massive, floating ice shelves extending hundreds of miles out over the frigid waters of the Southern Ocean.

    It looks like that the EU’s December summit will be overtaken by Brexit – pushing adoption of its 2050 climate plan into 2020, and maybe even beyond.  In June, European prime ministers meeting in Brussels were unable to agree on an EU proposal to completely decarbonize by 2050. Poland, with the backing of a few other Eastern […]

    There comes a moment for every protest movement when, instead of carrying the public with them, they alienate those that they are trying to persuade.

    The latest extinction scare is based on meaningless number-crunching without relevance to the real world of polar bears.

    The demand by a senior UN official that Australia should abolish its coal industry by 2030 shows how absurd and ridiculous the world body often is. If any Australian government were foolish enough to follow this advice there would be a net increase in global greenhouse emissions and Australia would be very substantially poorer. The […]

    Another example of a climate science story in which significant uncertainties are underplayed, results overhyped and the speculative nature of initial research poorly portrayed. The U.S. Southern Plains cold snap in February 2021 resulted in the collapse of the Texas energy grid with damages estimated at nearly USD 200 billion, substantially higher than that caused […]
