Delingpole: Dodgy Disgraced Deben Is Coming for Your Gas Cooker

How would you feel if some dodgy geezer smelling of mung bean fart, green sanctimony and greasy banknotes in a brown envelope came round to your house and told you that you’d have to get rid of your gas cooker because “climate change”?

Delingpole: Across the World Climate Alarmism Is in Retreat

From Poland to France, from Canada to the U.S, the climate alarmists are in retreat as the public begins to tire of their taxes, their constrictive regulations, their dodgy, ugly, inefficient renewable projects and their hysterical junk science scare stories. Economics is beginning to reassert itself over green propaganda.

Delingpole: Green Gove Loses the Plot Completely

Michael Gove has made a tit of himself yet again. Not Brexit, this time, but an excruciatingly stupid speech in his role as Secretary of State for the Department of Food, Environment and Rural Affairs.

LONDON, ENGLAND - JULY 15: Michael Gove, the former Education Secretary, arrives in Downing Street on July 15, 2014 in London, England. British Prime Minister David Cameron is conducting a reshuffle of his Cabinet team with a greater number of women expected to be appointed to senior positions. (Photo by …

Delingpole: UK Government Is Feeding the Green Blob

Would you pay an Irish environmental lawyer £232,000 a year to lobby to the government to raise your taxes and to make it harder to do business if he told you it was for the “public good”?

A protestor holds a placard as scientists and science enthusiasts participate in the 'March for Science' which celebrates the scientific method, in Westminster, central London on April 22, 2017, Earth Day. Thousands of people rallied in support for science in Europe and Australasia on April 22, ahead of a march …

Delingpole: Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon Project Nixed. Good!

Finally, the UK government has rejected the £1.3 billion Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon Project. This is a tremendous victory for common sense, for the environment, and for the hapless energy users who would have been subsidising this massive white elephant for many decades to come.

LONDON - DECEMBER 08: Climate change protestors carry surf boards near Trafalgar Square on December 8, 2007 in London. Demonstrators are gathering in more than 50 countries around the world. The worldwide protests coincide with the UN Climate talks in Bali and are calling for urgent action from world leaders …

Delingpole: And So It Begins, Trump’s Great Climate Purge…

Finally the Trump administration is starting to get serious about taking on the Green Blob. EPA administrator Scott Pruitt – perhaps stung by criticisms that he was turning into a squish – reaffirmed, in an interview with CNBC, that he is not a believer in catastrophic man-made global warming.

The United Nations is to vote later this week for a climate treaty "on steroids" - stronger, more all-encompassing and more legally binding than the ailing Paris accord.

DELINGPOLE: Scott Pruitt Is Failing to Drain the Swamp at the EPA

True, his credentials as a climate sceptic are not much in doubt. Yes, he might even agree with President Trump that there’s a swamp out there that sorely needs draining. The problem is, insiders explain, is that the future of the EPA is of far less interest to Pruitt than his prospects of becoming either one of Oklahoma’s next senators or its next governor.

DELINGPOLE: Environmentalists Aren’t Just Wrong. They’re Loathsome And Evil Too.

Today is Earth Hour and as usual I shall be lighting a candle – several, actually; plus turning my Rayburn up to eleven; plus turning on all the house lights; plus lighting the patio heaters; plus starting my Landrover and leaving its diesel engine to idle outside in the drive; plus switching on the immersion heater; plus running several hot baths – in tribute to the world’s climate heroes.

Some rare good news from the eco wars: it looks increasingly likely that a lunatic green project to build a £1 billion tidal lagoon across Swansea Bay in South Wales is going to be scrapped. Or so reckons Christopher Booker
