Gripped by a culture of climate catastrophism, society seems hell-bent on ripping up the energy system that is the foundation of our civilisation with only the vaguest idea of what might replace it, says Andrew Montford.

The problem with the WHO isn't that North Korea has a seat on its Executive Board. The problem is that democracies have suddenly decided they want it to dictate policy during self-declared emergencies.

Flu largely disappeared during 2020 and 2021, giving rise to ideas among some sceptics that it was being missed and wrongly classified as Covid. However, influenza surveillance data confirm that it really did vanish.

Musicians, Actors and animal friends sign letter of support for the Greyhounds

GREYHOUNDS HAVE GROWING LIST OF SUPPORTERS

Dear Sir/Madam,
While we are relieved that Bord na gCon was denied permission to export Irish greyhounds to China, we remain alarmed that they are nevertheless going to attempt to develop and manage racetracks there. This is not just a cynical move, but a sinister one. They will have to get greyhounds from somewhere for this cruel sport.
NO TO OUR FRIENDS RACING IN CHINA
NO TO OUR FRIENDS RACING IN CHINA

Unlike other breeds, greyhounds tend to be portrayed as commodities. But they are not machines. They are creatures who feel. Yet their lives are so undervalued, they are regularly subjected to neglect and abuse all over the world. In China, there is a massive amount of well-documented evidence of dogs and cats being thrown alive into boiling water, and then skinned, alive, to eventually end up for sale in open markets.
The Department of Agriculture may sign off on this new proposal. Now they need to take responsibility for deciding whether or not Irelandís reputation is worth more than the money that may be generated by this ominous project.
Lately we have seen how Irish society has been shot to pieces by State and semi-State bodies abdicating themselves from responsibility and by overbearing greed and arrogance running rough-shod over sense and compassion. We have seen that those who try to speak out against the establishment, for whatever reason, are often ridiculed as fools or worse. And we have seen how Ireland has fallen in terms of our pride and reputation.
Irish people are compassionate. Very recently, we spoke out loud and clear on the issue of cruelty to Irish greyhounds. This outcry shouldnít be seen by those making this important decision as ending with the welfare of Irish dogs. This extends to all greyhounds, no matter where they come from. At this point in our countryís affairs, let us dispense with greed in favour of humanity. Yours Sincerely,
