California recently enacted a law designed to combat the alleged threat of global warming. But is this effort to restrict greenhouse gases wise? Not according to Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute who says this law may be a disaster to California’s economy. Comments Mr. Ebell: “California already has the nation’s highest energy prices and an anemic economy. This new global warming law requires that it cut its emission to 1990 levels by 2020, which will require about a 25% cut in energy from coal, oil and natural gas, and a higher per capita cut because its population has been growing. In short, California has voted to join the Third World.”
