Senate's Economic Horror Story?

With Halloween fast approaching, the Senate appears to be all tricks and no treats. Topping the list is the Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) proposal to cap carbon dioxide emissions. The “Climate Stewardship Act,” which was open for debate in the Senate on Thursday, October 29, seeks to address concerns about global warming. The problem is, the science behind global warming theory is far from complete, and the scientific community continues to identify uncertainties and problems with existing theories about global warming. On the other hand, the costs of measures such as the Lieberman-McCain proposal and the Kyoto Protocol are not inconsequential; passing such proposals is sure to be a trick, not a treat, for all consumers.

No Backroom Deals on CO2

One of the larger tasks currently facing Congress is guiding an energy bill through conference. Both the House and Senate have passed versions that are now being reconciled. In some areas the differences are wide, which means there will be a certain amount of arm-twisting and cajoling to get the bill through conference. The Washington Post reports, for instance, that a loan guarantee for a power plant in Minnesota was included to sweeten the pot for Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) and that energy committee chair Sen. Domenici’s (R-N.M.) office has compiled a list of similar projects to woo additional support. Conference negotiations take place behind closed doors and far from the public, opening the potential to deals of all sorts.

Kyoto Again Stalks the Senate

Although tax policy has consumed much of the policy calendar, a number of other important issues, such as the energy bill, remain in the wings, preparing to take center stage for the summer season. The Senate has initiated debate on a final bill, but after bogging down on an ethanol amendment, the issue was shelved until after Memorial Day. While the goal is to complete the bill by the end of summer, efforts to amend the bill with aggressive global warming policies make for a long, hot summer. Should the proponents of these measures succeed, American consumers could be in for a shock.

Global Warming’s Uncertain Future

A recent report by the Environmental Protection Agency includes a notable departure from the last six years. The report, which provides an assessment of various pollutants, does not include any discussion of global warming, or global climate change. According to the New York Times, many environmentalists attribute the change to the administration’s close ties to industry, which has been opposed to moving forward with global warming policies, such as the Kyoto Protocol, which would force nations to make significant cutbacks in the use of fossil fuels.

A Threat from Within: the Senate’s Four-Pollutant Bill

Hidden amongst the recent Senate wrangling over whether or not to include energy production in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve (ANWR) as part of a comprehensive national energy bill is a push by some leading Senate Democrats to make any new production of domestic energy a moot point.

Yet Another Attack on the Economy

Copley News Service, 03/06/2001 As if we haven't already had enough bad economic news, now come reports of another attack on the economy from within the Bush administration. Even as President George W. Bush stumps for his tax rate reductions, he's facing a rear-guard assault on his economic program by members of his own Cabinet: massive hikes in energy costs masquerading as environmental safeguards.
