Wind and Solar Slaughtering India’s Iconic Bird

By Vijay Jayaraj By commissioning expensive and inefficient wind and solar electric generating facilities, India may have dug the grave of its own efforts to save the critically endangered great Indian bustard.

Health of Fish Stocks Contradict Climate Alarmists Predictions

By Vijay Jayaraj The oceans are still very much a mystery to humankind, with a vast majority of it yet to be explored. Early in my career, I wanted to make an in-depth study of how climate affected marine life. After all, many media reports claimed that “oceans will become empty by 2048.” So, as… Continue Reading

No Climate Crisis for Thriving Honeybees

By Vijay Jayaraj Writing anything good about climate change runs the risk of the writer getting lynched metaphorically by the online enforcers of a cultist apocalyptic narrative. For years, doomsayers have insisted that polar bears are in danger of extinction because of man-made warming even as experts have shown that populations have actually increased. So… Continue Reading

Coal’s Life-Saving Role Ignored By Climate-Obsessed Media

By Vijay Jayaraj On a recent cold winter day, residents of Munich were surprised to see people skiing in the street.

Two Different Shows in Dubai Related to South Korea

By Vijay Jayaraj Much of the United Nations’ annual climate gatherings is show.

Some surely smiled at the lapse of United Arab Emirates host mixing… Continue Reading

Economic Progress and Fossil Fuels: The Elephant in the Room at U.N. Climate Conference

The mainstream media are gearing up to bombard people with terms like “climate emergency,” “climate justice” and “climate equity” in anticipation of this week’s start of the 28th United Nations Conference of the Parties in Dubai.

Climate Falsification: Pakistan Flooding and Media’s Hype

By Vijay Jayaraj Recurrent floods in Pakistan that cause widespread property damage have been used by mainstream media as a propaganda tool to shift blame from poor urban planning to purported anthropogenic climate change.

Beijing’s Coal Boom Is Here to Stay

By Vijay Jayaraj News of record installations of so-called renewable energy electric generation in China may have kindled the hopes of those supporting the “green” agenda and hostile to fossil fuels.

EVs in Africa: No Place for Rich Boys Toys

By Vijay Jayaraj Electric vehicles (EVs) are a poster child for the so-called green transition. Even in some of the world’s poorest economies, an unquestioning embrace of all things “green” on the part of political elites powers a push for the adoption of electric vehicles. Africa — considered to be the least developed continent — is inundated… Continue Reading

Indonesia Shelves Decarbonization for Prosperity and Security

By Vijay Jayaraj Over the past few decades, Indonesia, an archipelagic nation made up of over 17,000 islands, has seen amazing economic progress.

Jayaraj: EVs Won’t Deliver West Freedom of Movement It’s Used To

By Vijay Jayaraj Various cities in the West have adopted “green” initiatives that might go unnoticed for the time being.

From Poverty to Moon Landing: How Coal Propelled Indian Economy

By Vijay Jayaraj On August 23, India landed a craft near the Moon’s South Pole – an historic feat matched only by three other countries and made possible by the subcontinent’s largely uninhibited use of fossil fuels.

The Media’s Climate Fearmongering Doesn’t Help Anyone

by Vijay Jayaraj In an era of sensationalism and clickbait headlines, the media’s portrayal of hot weather adopts an apocalyptic tone.

Al Gore’s Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds

By Vijay Jayaraj As an Indian, I don’t know whether to be more annoyed by Al Gore’s condescension or his hypocrisy when he describes my country as “the world’s third-highest emitter” of carbon dioxide in a tweet congratulating it for pausing investments in coal-fired power plants for five years. As the world’s most populous nation, India’s CO2… Continue Reading
