Global Warming Briefs

More reports from the COP-11 global warming front.

From David Ridenour:

Peyton Knight and Ryan Balis attended a Sierra Club briefing that included comments from David Foster of the United Steelworkers of America making the outlandish claim that global warming is costing union jobs. Hurricane Katrina, Foster claimed, displaced workers in New Orleans and elsewhere.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, however, rejects the Katrina/global warming link.

From Peyton Knight:

It is absurdly cold here — our hotel is only about three or four blocks from the conference, yet if it were five or six blocks, I’m not sure we’d be alive right now (much to the elation of 99.9 percent of this conference).

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
