Wash Post Admits Vigorous Scientific Debate on Climate Change

This is from the editorial page of the Washington Post this morning. The major outstanding question about global warming is not whether adding large amounts of new carbon to the atmosphere will tend to increase temperatures further. It is how sensitive the climate will be to what mass of additional carbon over time -- and how bad the practical consequences of that sensitivity will be. On this point, there exists vigorous scientific debate.

Senate Passes Drilling Bill

Yesterday the Senate approved a bill to open Gulf of Mexico to oil and natural gas drilling, while natural gas prices soar 14% amidst this summer’s heat wave.  Although increased domestic production of oil will do little to change prices as barrels are sold in a global market of producers and consumers, opening up drilling off of America’s coasts could significantly impact natural gas prices.  This is because most of the nation’s demand for natural gas is met by domestic production, with the most of the rest coming from Canada through pipelines, and a tiny1-2% coming from liquefied natural gas from abroad.  A large increase in domestic supply would go a long way to making it easier to heat a home.

Ballot Initiative May Cost Schools Millions

The Oregon University System could be cut by 6 percent next year if voters approve a statewide tax break at the polls this November. The ballot initiative, which is sponsored by the national anti-tax organization Freedom Works, would cut most households' taxes by approximately $140 per person. It would also cut the state budget by approximately 6 percent a year, or more than $400 million annually by 2008. Currently, 58 percent of Oregon's personal income tax revenues go to schools and universities, which are ranked 46th in the nation for per-student funding.

Property Rights and Network Neutrality

Assume you have just purchased a large piece of property you intend to use for agricultural and recreational purposes. You decide the best place to build your house is about a mile from the main road, and the best place to build a driveway to your new house is along one of your property lines.

India Accuses China of Dumping

The Indian government has launched a formal investigation into the price of China's textile exports, accusing five Chinese firms of "dumping" textiles into India below "fair market value." Until the investigation ends, India has introduced provisional tariffs on silk imports ranging from 57% to 116%. This is yet another of the countless dumping allegations made against China each year.

A New Look at the Current Account Deficit

With the Senate threatening to pass import tariff legislation if China does not allow the yuan to appreciate, the topic of the U.S.'s expanding current account deficit is hotter than ever. A recent article from American Enterprise Institute scholar John Makin, though, gives good analysis on why the current account deficit may not have the negative implications many politicians claim.

Insurance Regulations Result in Higher Premiums

A new study from the Heritage Foundation finds that state-level regulation of health insurance is correlated with higher premiums. Specifically, regulations such as health plan liability laws and mandated benefit laws are associated with premium increases of up to $31.15 per month. This can price many Americans out of coverage and thus contribute to the high numbers of uninsured.
