Key Quotes

February 21st, 2006

“The Pew Center on Global Climate Change recently released its agenda to combat so-called global warming in a report entitled 'Agenda for Climate Action.' Like most left-wing environmentalists’ call to arms, it is a mish mash of bad science and economics....The report also states that, 'Federal policies and R&D funding should support the use of ethanol and biodiesel today, and drive toward more advanced uses of biomass in the future.' Such policies amount to throwing more money down the sinkhole.”
