Psst - Wanna Buy a Million or Two Carbon Credits?

In a story that could never, ever happen here because our cap and trade would be better and no one would ever try to rip off the government, I'm sure, hackers have stolen millions in carbon credits from the German Emissions Trading Authoriy and resold them.   Credit card numbers are so passe. Today’s hackers know the real powerhouse data to steal is emission certificates. ...

Arkansas Action Alert

An important vote is coming up in the U.S. Senate that could help shape the climate change debate.   Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) has introduced a resolution of disapproval to challenge the Environmental Protection Agency’s “endangerment” finding, which allows the EPA to treat carbon dioxide (CO2) as a pollutant and therefore regulate it under the Clean Air Act. This is the Obama Administration’s way of setting the stage for cap and trade.

Cap and Trade Enthusiasts Flinch

It seems like only a few weeks ago that cap and trade's BFF Sen. Lindsey Graham was extolling the virtues of this economic trainwreck.  That's because it was only a few weeks ago.

California Looks to the Ballots to Suspend State Cap and Trade Scheme

If it's true that states are the "laboratories of democracy" California's cap and trade experiment should be considered a failed one and the federal government ought to think twice about implementing the same economy-killing measures across the nation.  The Wall Street Journal has the story of a possible ballot measure to at least temporarily repeal California's cap and trade carbon tax.

White House Bullying Congress into Cap and Trade

The EPA's findings on carbon dioxide earlier this week came as a surprise to few.  And the timing, in light of Copenhagen, couldn't be better for the Administration (sheer coincidence, we're sure).  Now it looks like the Administration isn't just going to bask in the sunlight of getting something done just in time for Obama's big speech in Oslo.  The White House is http://www.foxnews.com/politics

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!" (email from Dr. Phil Jones to Dr. Michael Mann of the Pennsylvania State University on how to exclude scientists with whom they disagreed from the IPCC process).  Together, the Climategate files present a disturbing window into the climate change scientific community, a place where:

Lord Monckton on the Copenhagen Treaty

First, a little background on Lord Monckton. He was a Maggie Thatcher adviser. He's an environmental policy wonk of the highest order, and a master of converting knowledge to action. He sued to prevent Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" from being forced into British classrooms... and won. The judge ordered that 9 serious inaccuracies in the film be corrected. Lord Mockton travels the globe to educate people on the myth of global warming. Now, watch this.

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.
