    Carbon Dioxide Regulation Contradicts Stimulus Spending

    Recently, House Members have added a provision to the Omnibus bill that “allows the Interior Department to withdraw two Endangered Species Act rules (one on Section 7 consultation and another on polar bears) within 60 days of enactment.” There are two key questions to be addressed under this provision. 1.) … More

    Carbon Capping - The Costliest Part of A Costly Speech

    So I ask this Congress to send me legislation that places a market-based cap on carbon pollution and drives the production of more renewable energy in America. It was a fairly innocuous sounding request in President Barack  Obama’s speech, but it would cost more than anything else he mentioned. That’s … More

    Backdoor Global Warming Policy Will Prolong the Recession

    Omnibus spending bills are typically end-of-the-year bills laden with wasteful earmarks and specific pet projects that cost the taxpayer billions of dollars.

    Carbon Capping Already Killing California Jobs

    President Barack Obama reiterated his promise to impose invasive and strict carbon caps on our nation’s economy last night.

    The Unintended Consequences of Global Warming Hysteria

    In what has been an unusually and welcoming warm week in the District and with that comes the “What’s so bad about global warming?” or “I love global warming!” facetious remarks. The funny thing is these comments are made by both global warming alarmists and global warming skeptics. As most … More

    Global Warming "Shell Games"

    Congressman John Shimkus (R-IL) is a member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee. He took time this week to answer questions from U.S. Fulbright Fellow Patrick Bell. 1. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), the new Chair of the Energy & Commerce Committee, has said he would like to have global … More

    A Stimulus with Some Energy

    An economic recovery plan that creates jobs, lowers gas and electricity prices, and won’t cost taxpayers $825 billion? Generally, when something is too good to be true, it usually is. And it’s probably the case here, but if I had a wish list of energy items to include in the … More

    Garbage In, Garbage Out II: Climate Modeling

    The economy is not the only policy area where the left has slapped some lines of code together and are attempting to pass it off as reality. As Al Gore’s testimony today on Capitol Hill reminds us, global warming would not exist as an issue without the left’s blind devotion … More

    Global Warming is Irreversible

    Global warming skeptics generally fall into four camps. 1.) We are in a period of global warming just as we could enter a period of global cooling in the future. 2.) The earth is warming but it’s not attributed to man-made activities. 3.) There is some truth to man-made warming … More
