Imagine if much of the media held the government to account... ...rather than cheering on the government when it attacks those who do

"...broader weakening of nationwide auto-emissions standards has become plagued with delays as staff members struggled to prepare legal, technical or scientific justifications for it." If you're struggling to justify your policy, that's probably a sign you have a bad policy

Bill Gates to me: "It’d be great if we could stop at two degrees. Unless there are huge surprises on scientific advances, I just don’t see it happening." As for 1.5 degrees, the UN target? "We’re not in that universe, period."

You don’t hide your tax returns for years and fight multiple court battles to keep them hidden just because you aren’t charitable (we already know this) or because you aren’t that rich (we already know this).

Maddening that the very few that publish in the so-called “top five” are considered representative of the breadth and diversity of “economists.” So many amazing economists are doing great work on climate change and climate change policy. We are hardly silent.

Wish the piece by & Oswald had gone deeper into solutions of what needs to be done. If there is an undersupply of climate papers in the top 5 (not convinced top 5 sees it that way) then we can learn from our finance colleagues. 1/8

In which explains just how, as Lord President of the Privy Council, he has managed in a short time to lose: - government majority - control or parliamentary business - a humble address motion - a major Scots constitutional case And mislead Queen on prorogation

Any binding constraint on an investment portfolio lowers returns on investment (Lagrange, 17something).
