Davos is a balmy -25C this morning – just right for sounding off about a theoretical future excess of warm weather. 😎

More than just a portmanteau, ‘Snowmageddon’ has forced the green elite to miss their own party in Davos Monday, putting their faux climate concern on hold, says Climate Change Dispatch.

Who would have thought it: Snow in Davos! It’s only Europe’s highest town.

The global elite shuddered with dread when the U.S. president announced his impending Davos Avalanche.

It didn’t take a political genius to foresee their swift journey from the C-suite to being extras in the next Trump circus. But worse was to come. Yeti crashed the party. —Politico, 23 January 2019

The Davos elite says they are more worried than ever about climate change. But that isn’t stopping them chartering nearly 1,500 private jet flights to attend the World Economy Forum in Davos. —Press Trust of India, 22 January 2019

Also in Davos were Sir David Attenborough and Prince William, in conversation. This, I feel, is a mistake, though an understandable one. One of the annoying features of greenery is that it involves rich and powerful people telling poorer, less powerful people to get poorer still. The obsession with increasing fuel prices is a current example. It makes the French put on yellow vests in protest, and is definitely unpopular in Zimbabwe (though I admit that Emmerson Mnangagwa’s vigorous methods of putting down the revolt may not be motivated by a desire to save the planet). Sir David says he was there because ‘If you care about the future of the world… this [the Davos crowd] is the most important community you can find’. Until recently he would, unfortunately, have been right, but peak Davos has passed, and world leaders, opinion-formers and future kings would be well-advised to avoid the ensuing avalanche. —Charles Moore, The Spectator, 24 January 2019

New Brazilian president highlights need to grow economy in Davos appearance. Brazil’s new rightwing president Jair Bolsonaro has prompted fresh alarm among environmentalists after stressing that protecting his country’s unique ecosystem has to be consistent with growing the economy. —The Guardian, 23 January 2019

So apparently the world is going to end in a few years’ time. Yawn. It’s fair to say that this is a message that has been heard on a regular basis for as long as anyone can remember – traditionally from long-haired gentlemen adorned with sandwich boards, but in recent years more often from (sometimes equally hirsute) climate scientists, environmentalists, and green-minded politicians. —The Spectator, 24 January 2019

    Renewable revolution ‘is too expensive and will not work’

    That’s the verdict from Derek Birkett, former Grid Control Engineer at Hydro Electric, which exercised grid control over large parts of Scotland.

    He argues that global climate concerns have been largely overstated, that clean energy’s intermittency is a fatal flaw and that large-scale battery storage is not an achievable goal.

    Some enthusiastic eco-warrior should have opened the windows and messed with the air conditioning.
    It worked once before.
