This weekend sees arguably the high point of the music festival year – Glastonbury – and naturally one of the main things that is exercising the liberal media is the disgracefully small proportion of female artistes on the bill. Yes,
At the weekend I had the pleasure of debating on TV with the BBC’s new pet Islamist, Dilly Hussain.
Climate change is going to kill you — more horribly, painfully and slowly than anything from your darkest nightmares. It’s worse than cancer, worse than giant scorpions, worse than the flesh-eating horror of necrotising fasciitis….
Even if you’ve never heard of Naomi Oreskes you’ll know her pet theory. It’s the one that says that a handful of contrarian, “denier” scientists in the pay of Big Oil are skewing the debate on global warming by deliberately
Great news from the scuba-diving tropical paradise Maldives. They’ve just opened another airport. This means that the Indian Ocean island nation now has four international airports and seven domestic ones. Quite a lot for a country with a population of
The Pope has published his long-awaited, 300 page encyclical on climate change, Laudato Si’. Here are some initial thoughts on what it all means: The Pope is a true believer (in the climate “consensus”) A very solid scientific consensus indicates
No the Pope doesn’t have a Masters degree in Chemistry. I only mention it because the usual suspects have been making such a big deal of Pope Francis’s scientific credentials, as part of their inevitable campaign to persuade us that
If you’re thinking of making an off-colour joke in modern Britain you’d be better off joining ISIS writes Douglas Murray in the Spectator. The point he makes is a good one. Whenever some idiot gets it into their head that
So the Pope’s long-awaited encyclical on “global warming” has been released to the media four days in advance of its official launch.
Historians will never cease arguing about when it was that Western Civilization began – Sumer? Salamis? After the Fall of Rome? But not one of them will be in the slightest doubt from this week onwards as to when it
“Trans Race” victim Rachel Dolezal has attracted much mockery from some quarters for claiming to be a black woman trapped in a white woman’s body. All I can say is: she should be so lucky. I personally have spent my
Roger Harrabin is the BBC’s in-house green activist-in-chief. He gets very upset when you mention this (journalists at the Beeb being obliged to be strictly impartial) – despite the fact that he has form a mile long – but just
Jurassic World. While lumpen folk concern themselves with trivial questions like “Is it any good?”, Britain’s premier mediator of correct thinking – the Guardian – has today asked the only question that really matters: “Is it sexist?”
My hero of the week is 72-year old Nobel-prizewinning scientist Sir Tim Hunt who this week went public at the World Conference of Science Journalists in Korea on the three main problems he has encountered during a lifetime working with
Even if you don’t happen to believe that Bilderberg is the sinister organisation that really rules the world, what cannot be denied is that its secretive meetings do to tend to attract some pretty high-level insect overlords. Here’s the participants
Here are two stories which show how badly we are losing the war against green fundamentalism: The first, courtesy of Christopher Booker, concerns the British government’s attempts to rush through a truly insane plan for a £1 billion tidal lagoon
There’s a long article in the grown-up Australian magazine Quadrant which I wouldn’t expect columnist Jonathan Chait to be capable of finishing, let alone comprehending.
there has now been no “global warming” for 18 years and six months. Not only does this contradict all the doomladen climate models cited in the IPCC’s various reports – none of them predicted the so-called “Pause” – but it also means that not one of the kids in school being fed climate propaganda by their on-message teachers has ever personally lived during a time of global warming.
Good news: the Sahara desert is getting greener because of “climate change.” Climate change has achieved what Bob Geldof and Live Aid failed to do by ending the drought in the Sahel region of Africa that killed more than 100,000
I hope you’re as disgusted as I am by the Caffè Nero chain’s craven capitulation to the animal rights activists who have successfully demanded it no longer serve milk which comes from dairy farms in areas affected by the badger cull.
Rod Liddle – the thinking man’s Ricky Gervais – has been doing his Dad Dance routine again. You know the one. It’s where he shows how down-with-the-kids and still-in-touch-with-his-radical-leftist-working-class-roots he is by telling you how utterly he loathes foxhunting and
Which is worse: a) opposing gay marriage or b) abducting a mother of ten in front of her weeping children, suffocating her with a plastic bag, shooting her in the head and burying her in an unmarked grave? Well, obviously
As the Jesuits almost said: “Give a child until he is seven and I will show you the fully indocrinated, yogurt-weaving, polar-bear hugging eco loon.” Such, at any rate, has been the message at one of the panel discussions at
My new favourite journalist is a guy called Max Benwell. Here’s how he begins his latest awesomely shareable piece for the Independent headlined As a white man, I’m surprised more women aren’t tweeting the hashtag #KillAllWhiteMen Men – be honest.
If I play my Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy too loud and the government hasn’t charged me for the $1000 worth of lost sleep my neighbours claim it has cost them, does that mean the government has given me
