President Bush: Standing Firm to Protect People and the Planet

Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy's (CSE) 280,000 citizen activists voiced their active support for President Bush and his remarks yesterday regarding global climate change. Paul Beckner, president of CSE, issued the following statement regarding the president's comments on global climate change: "CSE's activists could not have hoped for anything better than what President Bush delivered in his remarks on global climate change on June 11. "Unlike many, President Bush understood the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) report on global climate change. In particular, the president pointed out that the report found a lack of concrete evidence to link human activity to global warming. "Furthermore, with respect to CO2 emissions, the president rightly pointed out that while the US does emit more than any other nation, there is one key fact that many forget: the US also produces one quarter of the world's goods. He also pointed out that if we produce 20 percent of the world's emissions, the rest of the world produces 80 percent. This is important because it seems that other countries view the US as the only country that emits CO2. "Lastly, President Bush pointed out that the Kyoto Protocol is 'fatally flawed.' We couldn't agree more. Even former Clinton White House officials are coming forward to say that complying with Kyoto's mandatory reductions in greenhouse gases would be more difficult and more expensive for American consumers than originally thought. "The president understands that, through technological advances, the US is the cleanest, most energy efficient industrial nation in the world. CSE and our thousands of activists from across the country wish to thank President Bush for taking this courageous stand to protect people as well as the planet."

President Bush Comments on Climate and the Kyoto Protocol

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. I've just met with senior members of my administration who are working to develop an effective and science-based approach to addressing the important issues of global climate change. This is an issue that I know is very important to the nations of Europe, which I will be visiting for the first time as President. The earth's well-being is also an issue important to America. And it's an issue that should be important to every nation in every part of our world.

Tax Talk Continues at the Legislature

BY Scott Mooneyham

For the average taxpayer, a tax is a tax. That's not the case at the North Carolina Legislature. There are tax loopholes and local option taxes - two of the less onerous versions in legislative parlance. There are "sin" taxes that put it to people who engage in dubious activities such as drinking alcohol. And there's the sales tax - regressive to liberals but more politically palatable to moderates.

Battle Over Town Status Intensifies Bill That Would Allow Vote On Municipality Nears House Floor

BY Joe DePriest

The West Norman incorporation fight has dragged on for months, but battle lines are now etched even deeper. Supporters and opponents are stepping up lobbying efforts with legislators, who may soon decide the fate of the proposed new Lincoln County town. In March, the state Senate approved legislation that would allow West Norman residents to vote on incorporation, but the measure has been stuck in the House ever since. In late May, the bill landed in the Finance Committee for the second time and could come to the House floor for a vote within weeks.

Over 500 Mitchell County CSE Activists Protest Against the County Commissioners Tax Increase

Bakerville – Mitchell County CSE Club gathered over 500 local residents at a local high school on Saturday, June 9, to protest against the county commissioners who are threatening to raise property taxes against the will of the citizens. To counter the County Commissioners, the residents are taking action by gathering petition signatures and getting a strong message out to the community and to the County Commissioners that they will not take excessive taxation lying down. On those petitions they are pledging not to pay their property tax until January 2, 2002, putting fiscal strains on the County’s coffers.

Global Warming: A Verdict in Search of Evidence

In response to a request by the Bush administration, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) released a report on global warming on June 6. Environmental special interests, members of the media, certain politicians, and international bureaucrats trumpeted selected portions of the report to claim that the science of global warming was now settled, that human activities were responsible, and that the Bush administration was to blame. Obviously they did not read the entire document. The NAS report makes several points of uncertainty abundantly clear:
