Carbon Brief’s strange FOI story
This was a Twitter thread, which I thought would be better as a blog post... Oh, look, here is a "scientist" sharing that extremely weird FOI story about the team which changed the Prime Minister's mind about climate change. You might expect a scientist to check the...

New Project: the #FLOP26 Livestream
The annual UNFCCC, COP meeting climate ritual is returning after its Covid19 hiatus. Naturally, the UK being this year's host means that we have had to endure perhaps the most intolerable levels of green propaganda, as well as Lockdowns. What I have always found most...

Is there a plan?
Podcasters Alex McCarron (Escape from Lockdown) and Paul Rodriguez (State of the Markets) have a debate on the ideas in currency about whether all things Covid (and more) are the fruits of a 'plan' or not. Arguing that there is a plan was State of the Markets co-host,...
It’s not enough to criticise only XR’s ‘methods’
The fortnight of Extinction Rebellion (XR) protests on London’s streets are drawing to a close. As with earlier protests, significant news coverage and comment has been driven by XR’s trademark tactics: although seemingly making demands of government, directing its...

The green agenda’s role in global inflation
AS inflation rises and the prospects for our return to normality following the pandemic fade ever more into the distant future, criticism is rightly focusing on financial institutions and regulators. They claim that printing money, which has inevitably caused prices...
The Eco-Hyperreality of Climate Science
Modern climate change "science" exists on a plane of its own, detached from the real world Throughout the west, a war is being fought to establish a monopoly on truth. In the USA, a new Disinformation Governance Board is being rightly mocked as a ‘Ministry of Truth’...
The green industrial revolution is a lie
The UK's green sector has not grown in nearly a decade. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) published data earlier this month which showed that the UK’s ‘low-carbon and renewable-energy economy’ (LCREE) had not grown significantly between 2014 and 2020. This...
How the BBC is crushing the climate debate
BBC News is equating criticism of the green agenda with conspiracy theories and science denial. BBC News carried two articles last week denigrating and demonising the critics of climate-change alarmism. The first was by Marianna Spring, the BBC’s ‘specialist...
Insulate Britain is in bed with the establishment

What the IPCC climate report doesn’t tell you
Humans have never been more safe from the impact of extreme weather than they are today. Today, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the first tranche of its Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). This report, focusing on the ‘physical science...
Is the climate really getting more disruptive?
Climate policy, not climate change, poses the biggest risk to our daily lives. The UK Met Office released its annual State of the UK Climate report last week. Presenting the report, meteorologist Alex Deakin said that ‘understanding and observing the weather closely...
Are we finally getting cold feet about Net Zero?
The government’s green agenda is a disaster waiting to happen. There are press reports of growing tension between the UK treasury and the government over its Net Zero agenda. According to the Mail on Sunday, chancellor Rishi Sunak ‘baulked’ at the estimated cost of...
The lockdown fanatics are moving on to climate change
The likes of Independent SAGE crave a permanent state of emergency. Sir David King is a former UK chief scientific adviser to successive New Labour governments, and the founder of Independent SAGE, the self-appointed group of experts offering scientific advice to the...
