“While outspoken scientists of human-caused climate change in the United States endure torrents of freedom of information requests, hate mail and even death threats from skeptics, their counterparts abroad have been free to do their work without fear.
“I feel for my American colleagues and what they’ve had to deal with,” said Tim Lenton, an earth system scientist who specializes in climate tipping points at the University of Exeter in the UK. Continue reading

THE carbon tax is making Australia more, not less, dependent on the highly polluting brown-coal electricity generators. Billion-dollar subsidies have allowed the Victorian operations to force cleaner base-load power stations out of the market. Continue reading
THE Orwellian name of the Gillard government’s carbon tax policy – Clean Energy Future – makes its aim of shifting electricity generation from the dirtiest power stations to the cleanest quite plain. Consumers are entitled to feel somewhat mystified that brown-coal generation – the highest carbon polluter – is largely unaffected by carbon emissions policy. Continue reading

Ask almost anyone who Nicholas Stern is and you’d surely draw a blank. But as Andrew Montford suggests at his Bishop Hill blog, there are few men who have had quite such a deleterious effect on our lives as this dreary ex-civil servant now known – to those few who do know of him – as Lord Stern and doing very nicely thank you at his extremely well-paid job fomenting climate alarmist drivel at the Grantham Institute.
