    Morning Bell: We're About to Have a Jobs Terminator in Washington

    In a taped message shown yesterday to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Governors Global Climate Summit,” President-elect Barack Obama reiterated much of the same rhetoric from the campaign trail: a federal cap-and-trade system, cutting carbon emissions by 80% by 2020, $15 billion a year in new spending, and 5 million new … More

    The Global Warming Challenge

    Some of the most egregious policies implemented by Congress have been when Members failed to fully understand the costs and the benefits of that policy. Sometimes it’s haste and other times it’s failing to take into account the seen and the unseen. The question is: If Congress implements a stringent … More

    Global Warming Debate Goes Cold

    As the House of Commons in England was debating global warming legislation, something happened that hasn’t occurred since 1922. Snow started to fall in October.

    Who Is Setting Our Climate Agenda?

    Whatever choice the American people make next week, common sense on global warming is not on the menu. Both Barack Obama and John McCain have made similar vague promises to radically reorder our economy in order to combat global warming. How did it come to this. Claudia Rosett explains: Most … More

    It's Not Easy Being Green

    Kermit the Frog poured his heart out when he sang, “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. In fact, it’s quite costly to be green. But policymakers and environmentalists alike are purporting the ‘Green Revolution’ as the solution to both our financial woes and our … More

    Green Jobs Are Con Jobs

    Bad energy policy usually involves repeating the mistakes made from 1970 to 1980 — windfall profits taxes, federally subsidized alternative energy sources, price controls, and others. All of these old ideas are back in play, even though their track record for worsening rather than solving the nation’s energy problems is … More
