Clearly, there is a gulf of difference between how leading Anglosphere economies are handling the unexpected new hydrocarbon revolution on their doorsteps and how they are being handled by more ideological, less pragmatic, EU-strait-jacketed, European states.
According to James Bennett:
The Anglosphere is more than the sum of all persons who have learned the English language. To be part of the Anglosphere implies the sharing of fundamental customs and values; rule of law; honoring of covenants; in general, high trust characteristics described by Francis Fukuyama in Trust: The Social Virtues and the Creation of Prosperity ... The Anglosphere shares a narrative in which Magna Carta, Bill of Rights, trial by jury, “innocent until proven guilty” and “a man’s word is his bond” are common themes.
The cultural ideals listed for the Anglosphere are the antithesis of many of those experienced under European-style socialism. Clearly, demographic trends show that people increasingly want to live where greater personal freedoms are guaranteed. Equally business investment flourishes where free market capitalism, not ideological government writ, still calls the shots.
If the noble ideals Bennett identifies are fuelling the Anglosphere’s increasing per capita wealth, early investment in new domestic energy development will only mean one thing: more power to it.

Published here at EnergyTtribune (and re-published at the US Energy Institute and British Global Policy Warming Foundation sites) over the past couple of days...my article showing the prospectiv economic miracle at out fingertips...once we re-prioritise a realistic energy strategy centred on hydrocarbons.
Transforming our economic outlook wil, however, require a more realistic political vision - and ignoring the Planet Unreality nitwits at Greenpeace et al.
Enviro-nuts are getting desperate - as this article reveals. Go here for the full article. And here's a excerpt:
The French philosopher Jacques Ellul, in his definitive book on the subject, warned, “The propagandist uses a keyboard and composes a symphony”(1). When it comes to the shameful culture of enviro-spinning it seems they have adopted the art of sleight-of-hand and illusion, too.
The Economist laments that the public has “fallen out of love with environmentalism”. But the ‘magic’ has a habit of wearing off when we discover sanctimonious zealots are feeding us a diet of “smoke, mirrors and bullshi

Here's a taster:
As the latest UN IPCC climate narrative is staged in Durban, an adapted Macbeth soliloquy offers its own summary: “A tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
The ludicrous war on CO2 is already starting to drive out national industries. See the above named article just published at Energy Tribune here for more. But here's a taster:
A plague of profit-busting climate policies is indeed sending a “clear signal” to energy-intensive industries: divest yourself of assets, shed jobs – or just plain ship out. Cocooned in ideological green protectionism, however, don’t expect Hedegaard and Huhne to “get” it.
Just published my piece explaining why fracking and shale gas is so massively beneficial compared to the tiny (and vastly overplayed - by the media) eco-concerns. For the full article go here.
Here's a taster:
There’s not a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on due to shale gas fracking – official. Except, that is, in the global energy markets. But the ‘whatever-it-is-I’m-against-it’ Marxist (Groucho, that is) eco-activists, together with the constant alarmists in the media, persist in attempting to send tremors through public opinion over shale gas extraction.
So why the fracking fuss?
A new IAEA report on Iran's nuclear development progress tomorrow could prove the ultimate trigger for Israel to attack Iran's facilities - with Obama's backing or not. But if you thought World War III/conflagration across the Middle East would be the consequence of such an attack, you'd be quite wrong.

Just published my latest article as per title above. What we have here is yet another climate alarmist professor making a fool of himself. Below are two graphics. The first (run by the idiot BBC, Guardian et al) alleges the average global temperatures have continued to rise over recent years. The second graph uses the data from the SAME source and guess what...it proves temperatures flat-lined in the 90s.
