Global Warming

  • We must not ignore or discredit research that points to the undeniable effects of human activity as the main contributing agent to global warming. We must oppose legislation introduced by Representatives Moran and Pomeroy to overturn the EPA’s scientific findings that global warming pollutants endanger public health and welfare! Although recent scandals have undermined the credibility of the scientific body of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the scientific evidence for climate change remains as strong as ever. February 9, 2010 remarks at the Center for American Progress, a Washington, D.C.–based think tank, by lead U.S. climate negotiator Todd Stern, indicated:
  • "The mounting evidence on the ground of what's actually happening and the growing sophistication of the modeling goes way beyond any particular set of data or any particular problems that occurred with respect to the University of East Anglia or IPCC mistakes. Global warming is the most serious environmental threat of our time. Already, we are experiencing global warming impacts worldwide, including more severe storms, prolonged forest fire seasons, floods and droughts, agricultural losses and increased human disease. The United States is the top global warming polluter in the world, with a 20 percent increase since 1990 of carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels and another 15 percent increase forecast by 2020 without a change in regulation."
  • Climate change directly affects our people and wildlife. If unchecked, global warming would have an impact on our water supplies and farming, wildlife habitat and human health. What dozens of states are already doing should be part of a coordinated effort on the part of all 50 states. As a unified country of concerned citizens we should adopt:

    • Clean-car standards that would reduce automobile global warming pollution by 30 percent.

    • Implement and enforce fee and dividend carbon emissions standards.

    • Adopt a comprehensive US Energy Conservation Code in building and construction.

    • Set minimum efficiency standards for common appliances.

    • Other measures that will turn the global warming crisis around.

  • We are in a perfect position to take more rigorous global warming action, not only to help protect our climate, but to improve public health, create a sustainable and healthful economy, create jobs, and increase disposable income for American consumers.
