“that valuable if unconsidered thing that is one of the two for which civilization was principally originated, which are warmth and dryness...”
Lord Dunsany Up In The Hills
In BOE Report I skewer the hypocrisy of politicians, most notably our Prime Minister, who demand that we use dramatically fewer fossil fuels while jetting about hobnobbing with his fellow elitists or promoting his electoral prospects so frequently it’s hard to keep track of where he is.
In my latest National Post column I tell Lisa Raitt that to express skepticism about man-made global warming then recoil from your own words with apparent horror is the worst imaginable way to do politics or make policy.
In BOE Report I say Nobel-prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz’ comparison of fighting climate change to World War III is unhappily appropriate since getting rid of fossil fuels would destroy our civilization just as World War III would have done. Which is why most of the drama is purely rhetorical as virtually none of our virtue-signaling politicians are willing to inflict such harm on purpose.
