Gore's Glacial Posturing Scored by Advocacy Group

Vice President Al Gore's suggestion that melting glaciers may be the result of global warming cannot be taken seriously, according to a market-oriented advocacy group. "Any grade-school science textbook will tell you the process of glaciation and deglaciation is completely natural and has occurred many times in Earth's history and will likely occur again," said Paul Beckner, president of Citizens for a Sound Economy.

Issue Analysis 57 - Think Globally, Tax Locally: The EPA's Global Warming

Citizens for a Sound Economy Issue Analysis 57 - Think Globally, Tax Locally: The EPA's Global Warming "Action Plan" July 26, 1997 In July 1996, in a major policy shift, the Clinton administration agreed in principle to binding international limits to reduce manmade greenhouse gases. At the 150-nation Global Climate Conference in Geneva, Undersecretary of State for Global Affairs Timothy Wirth announced the administration's intent to secure an international agreement that would legally bind some countries to reduce emissions of CO2 and other "greenhouse" gases believed by some to cause global warming.

The Heat Is On

President Clinton's Environmental Protection Agency recently kicked off its national campaign in Boston to "convince the American people that the climate change problem is real and imminent." The EPA gives the impression that nearly any natural catastrophe can be attributed to global warming. The agency has predicted that global warming will increase extreme rainfalls and, thus, promote more flooding. If floods don't result as predicted, the EPA insists that severe droughts will occur. That's right, global warming supposedly means drier and wetter weather.

Group Criticizes Clinton's Reliance on 'Junk Science'

Commenting on President Clinton's remarks concerning global warming at the United Nations today, Paul Beckner, president of Citizens for a Sound Economy said, "Before the world stage, President Clinton announced his intentions to spend billions of Americans' dollars on unproven environmental policies." Beckner characterized the so-called global warming theory as "junk science." The president's speech in New York follows his decision on Wednesday to implement the Environmental Protection Agency's controversial new clean air standards.

Capitol Comment 162 - Risky Business: Insurance, Risk Classification and the Consumer

Legislators and regulators increasingly are attempting to improve the availability and affordability of insurance -- whether life, health, auto or home -- by restricting how insurance companies can classify risks. However, those who attempt to reform insurance markets by restricting risk classification need to be very careful, for when they undermine the fundamental principles of risk-based insurance, they usually end up doing more harm than good.

CSE Blasts President's Embrace of EPA Standards; Urges Congress To Order Delay in Rules' Issuance

Statement by Paul Beckner President, Citizens for a Sound Economy "The chief beneficiaries of the president's decision will be those who make their living promoting junk science, government bureaucrats who need to justify their existence, and lawyers chasing after the windfalls of environmental litigation. "In making his decision, the president fell for faulty science, turned a deaf ear to thousands of local and state elected officials, and ignored a majority of voices within his own administration who questioned the need for these standards.

Capitol Comment 161 - The Senate and House Kiddycare Schemes Are a Bad Deal for Kids

Parents had better put the kids to bed early this week. Otherwise, youngsters might happen across C-SPAN in time to watch the United States Senate and House of Representatives cast their most damaging votes ever against children's health. Armed with faulty data on the status of children's health coverage, Congress is set to spend $16 billion or more over the next five years to create a new federal "Kiddycare" program. While claiming to provide health coverage for children, Kiddycare will actually waste billions of dollars, and provide no health benefit to children.

Issue Analysis 54 - The EPA's Proposed Air Quality Standards: First, Do No Harm

The EPA's proposed air quality standards for ozone and particulate matter might actually do more harm than good, even just in terms of public health. Recent studies suggest that the costs of the proposed standards could be $90 billion to $150 billion annually, forcing consumers to spend less on health care and safety products. A recent study by the Reason Public Policy Institute found that up to 27,000 fatalities may be attributed to the proposed standards.

Capitol Comment 160 - Can You Differentiate a Taxpayer From a Consumer at the Grocery Store?

The federal sugar program fixes the price of sugar bought in the United States at roughly double the world price, costing consumers 1.4 billion dollars a year.1 Yet, program supporters claim the program does not hurt Americans, pointing to the small budget cost to the taxpayer. The distinction between a taxpayer and a consumer is a curious one -- since the two cannot be distinguished at the checkout line. In fact, consumers are hit twice by the program. First, with higher taxes -- regardless of how "small" the burden is -- and second through higher prices for the food they purchase.
