RIP Jack Kemp

by Fred Smith

"He believed—as we do at CEI—that the American people were not predisposed to favor the growth of Leviathan. He worked throughout his career to promote free market ideas to progressives, minorities, and traditional liberals. Jack was a conservative who believed that a more just and egalitarian society could best be achieved by free market policies. Firm in this belief, Jack was a happy warrior, always eager to speak to all and sundry with respect and grace. He will be missed."



Eco-sailors rescued by oil tanker

by Marlo Lewis

"'An expedition team which set sail from Plymouth [England] on a 5,000-mile carbon-emission free trip to Greenland have been rescued by an oil tanker,' BBC News reports. . . The irony of an oil tanker rescuing anti-fossil fuel crusaders was of course not lost on theBBC."



Cockroaches Win

by Angela Logomasini

"If New York regulators get their way, the only other option will be for people to hire an exterminator. So basically, if your income is too low and your kid has allergies and asthma related to cockroaches, you will be out of luck. The cockroaches win, you loose."



So, Mr. Waxman, how much global warming will your bill avert?

by Marlo Lewis

"The Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade (energy tax) bill aims to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions . . . by 2050 . . . MAGICC reveals that an 83% reduction in U.S. emissions 'will only produce a global temperature 'savings' during the next 50 years of about 0.05ºC.'"



Destabilizing Afghanistan: the Quagmire Expands

by Hans Bader

"The anti-American Taliban extremists are resurgent not only in Afghanistan, where they once sheltered Osama Bin Laden, but also in neighboring Pakistan (which has nuclear weapons) as well. Thousands of Pakistanis are fleeing the Swat Valley, which is dominated by the Taliban."



Status Report on International Climate Treaty

by William Yeatman

"There are only seven months until the global community plans to adopt a successor climate treaty to the failed Kyoto Protocol in Copenhagen, but negotiators are far apart on the most important issues-binding emissions cuts and paying for a global green energy revolution . . . It is my strongest hope that this deadlock persists, so that we all may be spared the burden of an ill-conceived, economically ruinous climate change mitigation treaty."
