10-YEAR OLD STERN REVIEW ON CLIMATE CHANGE ENONOMICS DEMOLISHED IN UK

Posted 31 October 2016

A new paper by UK MP Peter Lilley, a former senior Minister, is a devastating analysis 10 years later of the Stern Review, in which the now Lord Nicholas Stern attempted to assess the adverse economic effects of "climate change" a.k.a. man-made global warming. In a foreword to this Global Warming Policy Foundation paper, its chairman, Lord NIgel Lawson says: "the verdict could not be more damning," adding: "In my 2008 book, An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming, I observed that 'The Stern Review is essentially a propaganda exercise in support of the UK government's predetermined policy of seeking a world leadership role on climate change. ....[Mr Lilley] 'has produced... a devastating analysis of its shortcomings and an indisputable demolition of its shortcomings."

The paper also includes an article by climate economist Professor Richard Tol, telling how research has moved on, and away from Stern.

Posted 9 April 2016

Discussing the threatened closure of Britain's largest steel works in Port Talbot due to inflated costs of energy, James Delingpole posts at Breitbart: "First, the green movement is ideologically opposed to Western industrial civilisation: so these factory closures are not a regrettable by-product but a very deliberate aim of its policies. Second,...the environmental movement has no problem with telling outright lies in the service of its cause."

INTELLIGENT DISCUSSION OF MERITS OF WINDARMS v NUCLEAR FOR FUTURE ENERGY GENERATION

Posted 9 April 2016

The UK's Scientific Alliance has posted two recent commentaries that indicate a change of heart by one prominent warmist who questions the efficacy of wind power as a feasible solution to Britain's energy problems. The post discusses the differences between that warmist and Professor Bjorn Lomborg: "To make any real progress on these thorny issues, we have to get away from the doctrinaire differences and name-calling that characterise so much of the debate. When ‘warmists’ refuse even to share a platform with ‘deniers’ (a term used sometimes to denote even a whiff of heretical thought) there can seem little point in trying to engage constructively."
