The Futile Quest for Climate Control

Posted: 11/12/2008 - Marxism, Freudianism, global warming. These are proof - of which history offers so many examples - that people can be suckers on a grand scale.

Obama’s “green jobs” plan would indeed create jobs, but it would do so by killing other jobs. Is that really the type of energy policy Americans want?

Voters are clearly still not ready for exorbitant costs and excessive regulation without clear benefits. President-elect Obama may have felt “a righteous wind” at his back during the campaign, but it did not translate into environmental victories at the ballot box, where one green initiative after another failed for a variety of reasons.
