Citizen's Issue Summary: The Endangered Species Act

What Is the Endangered Species Act? The Endangered Species Act (ESA) was passed in 1973 as a broad effort to protect species and the habitat they live in. More than 1,000 American species are listed as either endangered or threatened. “Endangered” species are those considered close to extinction, while “threatened” species are those that are close to becoming endangered. Persons who harm a listed species or damage their habitat are subject to severe penalties.

Citizen's Issue Summary: Public Lands

How Much Land Is Enough? The federal government owns nearly 30 percent of all land in the United States. Most of this public land is managed by four agencies: the Bureau of Land Management, the Forest Service, the Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service. This land is used for a variety of purposes, such as grazing, logging, mining, wildlife refuges, wilderness areas, and national parks. However, few people are happy with most of the government’s land management practices, which have damaged the environment and prevented the efficient use of resources. Despite these problems, there is talk in Washington of taking over even more land.

Citizen's Issue Summary: Global Warming

The Global Warming Hypothesis The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that results from solar radiation being trapped by naturally occurring greenhouse gases — water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, etc. As incoming heat from the sun warms the surface of the earth, the surface gives off heat that the gases trap and keep near ground level. The effect is similar to the way in which a greenhouse traps heat. This warming of the atmosphere is what makes life on earth possible.

Citizen's Issue Summary: Property Rights

Fact... Special interest groups have strongly resisted efforts to compensate property owners when government effectively “takes” their property through regulation. Such groups claim that reducing the value of property by regulation does not constitute a “taking,” only an actual seizure of property counts. They also claim that if government is forced to compensate property owners for regulatory takings, then environmental protection will become too costly. In addition, these groups claim that compensating property owners is nothing more than a taxpayer- funded bailout for people trying to destroy the environment.

Alarmists claim that acid rain has wiped out fish in many lakes and streams, destroyed forests, ruined crops and buildings, and that it poses a serious threat to human health.
