Political measures and technology have a part to play, but a carbon tax or similar would be most effective Although many supporters of Donald Trump seemingly believe that global warming is a hoax, almost everyone else agrees that the climate emergency should be at the top of the list of important policy issues. Identifying the problem, however, is not much use unless we also identify the appropriate tools to address it. In my own field of specialisation, central bankers have caught climate-change...

Why, it seems so inconsistent on its face! But for Starr, it's 1,000 percent consistent. It's who he is. He's a political hack. A total partisan hatchet man. One of the most poisonous political figures of our time. No worse. One of the most...
