    Things may not become so hot after all When scientists create simulations of the climate in their supercomputers, two of the most important model characteristics are the climate sensitivity ­– how much warming you get for a doubling of carbon dioxide – and the cloud–aerosol forcing, the cooling influence you get as a result of […]

    The very prospect of a nation basing its entire energy security on intermittent, weather- and climate-dependent power sources ought to frighten any sane person.

    Russia is gearing up to take advantage of Canberra’s poor relationship with China to expand its coal exports, analysts say, as Chinese authorities allow some of the millions of tonnes of Australian coal stranded off its coast on dozens of ships to be offloaded.

    The green oligarchs from Wall Street, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley could soon find themselves under attack like the liberal aristocrats during the French Revolution. “The climate transition presents a historic investment opportunity,” says BlackRock CEO Larry Fink. “What the financiers, the big banks, the asset managers, private investors, venture capital are all discovering is: There’s a lot […]

    For planners and politicians of the developing countries, most of which are signatories to the (non-binding) Paris Agreement, hectored constantly about the need to “transition” from fossil fuels, the Texas debacle provides ironic education when the chips are down in the richest country in the world.
