Climate Change Legislation Update
The House and Senate will also have to work out minor differences on their respective versions of a global warming study commission bill. North Carolina will be the first state in the Southeast to conduct such a study and other states have expressed an interest in enacting similar legislation. In the meantime, The John Locke Foundation hosted a luncheon and press conference this week featuring Dr. Fred Singer, one of a handful of scientists out of thousands who disputes that global warming is a problem and that it has any anthropogenic connection. They also distributed a copy of Michael Chrichton's polemic on global warming to all legislators.
