Matt Ridley Prize

Announcing the Matt Ridley Prize for Environmental Heresy

Matt Ridley has long deplored the wind farm delusion, and was appalled when a family trust was paid by a wind farm company in compensation for mineral rights on land on which it wanted to build a turbine. The trust would be paid £8,500 a year for it, and Matt couldn’t abide the idea of profiting — even in part — from this. So he is donating £8,500 in an annual prize to be given to the best essay exposing environmental fallacies. Entries open today.

Pieces are to be 1,000 to 2,000 words on the topic of your choice.  Is there anyone we can think of who could pen such a piece?

  1. D'oh... that would be you or the monk! I swear my brain catches on fire when I read some of your stuff from the thinking it causes. Not much of that happens anymore.
