Policy Implications of Climategate

With over 4,000 documents to sort through, it's certain that we'll continue to uncover gems like "I can't see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report, Kevin and I will keep them out somehow - even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature  is!"

New Report Highlights Harmful Effects of Climate Change Legislation

Today, Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) and Kit Bond (R-Mo.) released a report analyzing the likely effects of the Waxman-Markey energy bill passed by the House of Representatives in June.

According to the report, Waxman-Markey will increase fuel costs by more than $3.6 trillion over the life of the bill.

A note to Lindsey Graham

October 13, 2009Dear Senator Graham,As an active blogger for my own site (Rossputin.com), for the Denver Post, FreedomWorks, and the National Taxpayers Union, and as a contributing columnist for Human Events magazine, I spend a lot of time studying the intersection of politics and economics.  Within that realm, there are few current topics as important as “cap and trade” – and few pieces of legislation with as much destructive potential.

The economic insanity of global warming alarmists

The International Energy Agency is reporting a "surprising" and "significant" decline in worldwide CO2 emissions in 2009, versus 2008. The reason, of course, is the deep worldwide recession which has wiped trillions of dollars out of the planet's wealth.

Obama Misses the Mark on Climate Change Policy

Today, President Obama spoke before the United Nations to address the issue of climate change. In a speech in which he highlighted the United States’ record on energy policy, the president also called on other nations to join him in his “urgent” fight against climate change. Seen by many as a lead-in to this week’s G20 Summit and December’s climate summit in Copenhagen, the speech revived President Obama’s domestic energy initiatives at a time when most of the public debate has been dominated by health care.
