Texas Takes Step on Warming; Some See Shift in Bush's Position

BY ANDREW C. REVKIN

Texas' three natural resource commissioners, all appointees of Gov. George W. Bush, said yesterday that global warming was a serious problem and that the state would explore ways to cut its emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases. The decision, although just a tentative move toward action, was praised by some private environmental groups. They said it could signal a shift in the global-warming stance of Mr. Bush, who so far has said that although earth's climate appears to be warming, more research must be done to determine whether human activities are the cause.

Class Clash... and Fabrication

Copley News Service, 08/23/2000 Vice President Al Gore and President Clinton not only took sole credit for today's splendid economy in their speeches last week at the Democratic National Convention, but they also boasted that the Clinton-Gore "new economic strategy" saved the nation from economic disaster. To use Mr. Clinton's own allusion to Joe Friday, it is time to set the economic record straight with "just the facts."

No testing may mean increased pollution

BY CRAIG PITTMAN

But at a public hearing, state environmental officials said it won't be enough to violate federal laws. Other speakers disagreed. Ending auto emissions tests will add an estimated 12 tons of pollutants each day to the air over Tampa Bay. State environmental officials said at a public hearing Tuesday that the increase is not enough to violate federal air pollution laws.
