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. The report provides an analysis of aspects of the bill that have previously gone overlooked: Increased fuel prices and their effect on consumers. Up until now, analysis of Waxman-Markey has focused on electricity prices and ignored the harm caused by higher fuel costs. 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.
