Interview with Danielle Smith on the consequences of getting it wrong on climate change

Danielle Smith with AM770 in Calgary interviewed me last Friday (I was in the lobby of the hotel during a break in the Heartland Institute Climate Change conference) on what happens if reputable opinion is intolerantly wrong on “man-made” climate change.

“The true savage is a slave, and is always talking about what he must do; the true civilized man is a free man, and is always talking about what he may do.”

G.K. Chesterton in Illustrated London News April 18, 1906, reprinted in Gilbert! Vol. 3 #5 (March 2000)

The perils of climate denial

In my latest National Post column I warn of a massive breach of trust if reputable opinion doesn’t stop shaming and shouting down people pointing to serious defects in climate change alarmist orthodoxy.

“Socialism… is full of the idea that an ordinary person is incompetent and must be superseded by an official – who is also an ordinary person. Their whole philosophy is that a thing must not be done by somebody but by somebody else.”

G.K. Chesterton in New Witness July 6 1916, quoted in Gilbert Magazine Vol. 20 # 1 (Sept.-Oct. 2016)

Early morning wall of ice delivered by benevolent state

In my latest National Post column I point out that only the government would put a big wall of wet snow and ice across your driveway to solve its snow-on-a-public-street problem and expect you to be grateful.

P.S. A correspondent alerts me that the proper name for such a thing is a “windrow”. Which beats a lot of things you might call it when you get up in the morning in a hurry to get to work or school and find it there sneering at you.
