In the News Today

 

REGULATORY DARK MATTER - WAYNE CREWS


Congress Better Fix 'Regulatory Dark Matter'

Congressional reforms under consideration include automatic sunsetting of rules, versions of a base-closure style regulatory reduction commission (something bi-partisan for a change), and regulatory budgets. > Read the Forbes commentary

> Interview Wayne Crews

 

CLIMATE CHANGE THREAT  - MARLO LEWIS

Climate Treaty Threatens Developing Country Economies

 

A study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) frets that the “carbonization” of energy resulting from the “renaissance of coal” in developing countries could render “ambitious” emission stabilization goals “infeasible.” Gee, really — who’da thunk it? > Read more

FIXING THE ECONOMY - JOHN BERLAU

Newsmax: Stable Dollar Is Needed to Fix Economy

There are so many destructive big-government policies these days that sometimes it’s hard for free-market reformers to know what to fix first. The tax code, healthcare, drastically out-of-control spending?  > Read more

EPA & CLIMATE CHANGE DEATHS  - MARLO LEWIS

EPA Chief: Fighting Climate Change Could Prevent 69,000 Deaths From Pollution in 2100

 

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy said on Tuesday that if the United States leads a global battle against climate change, then 69,000 premature deaths would be prevented in the year 2100. But "there’s no empirical data to back up EPA’s assumption that the warming rate over the next 85 years will increase by 400%,” which would result in thousands of premature or avoidable deaths cited in the EPA report, says CEI's Marlo Lewis. > Read the CNSNews report

CEI Today: Supreme Court's disturbing ruling, FreedomFest, your 401(k), and more 

Wednesday, July 8, 2015
In the News Today

 

TRIAL LAWYERS - HANS BADER

Supreme Court Expands Power of Trial Lawyers Over Elections in Arizona Ruling

 

The Supreme Court perversely redefined the word “legislature” to include unaccountable, undemocratic bodies influenced by special interest groups. That disturbing ruling will increase the power of left-wing trial lawyers over America’s Congressional elections, by expanding the influence of trial-lawyer-influenced judicial nominating commissions over congressional redistricting. > Read more

YOUR 401(k) - JOHN BERLAU


Don't let Team Obama 'protect' your retirement account they way it has 'protected' your health care

Taking a victory lap as the Supreme Court vindicated ObamaCare, the Obama administration is busy preparing to apply the paternalistic precepts of the health care monstrosity to another vital area of Americans’ livelihoods – retirement saving in 401(k)s and IRAs.  > Read the Fox News commentary


> Interview John Berlau
 

UNION DECERTIFICATION - TREY KOVACS

Largest Union Decertification Effort in Railway Labor Act History Underway at Allegiant Air


Allegiant Air flight attendants have filed with the National Mediation Board to decertify the Transport Workers Union. If successful, it would be largest decertification under the Railway Labor Act. > Read more

CEI Today: Canned food scare, Freedomfest, your 401(k), social cost of carbon, and a big union decertification

GREEN SCARE & CANNED FOODS - ANGELA LOGOMASINI

Green Advice On Canned Foods Belongs In The Trash

 

Go to the supermarket and you may notice canned food bearing the label “BPA-free.” It doesn’t mean those products are any better than others—although they may be more expensive.
 
Yet environmental activists spawned the nonsensical demand for Bisphenol A-free packaging by focusing on spin rather than science.  > Read the Forbes commentary

SOCIAL COST OF CARBON - MARLO LEWIS

OMB Acknowledges (Most) of Our Comments on the Social Cost of Carbon, Engages None
 

The administration has a party line and no agency is allowed to deviate from it on any matter of climate science, economics, or policy, no matter how speculative or minor the point at issue.
 

Nonetheless, I continue to submit comments — as other skeptics and free marketers do — just to ensure that the administration’s groupthink does not go unchallenged on the record. > Read more
