Testimony of James Taylor - Kansas House Standing Committee on Energy and Environment

February 13, 2014

Senior Fellow James Taylor's written testimony submitted on February 13, 2014 to the Kansas House Energy & Environment committee on a resolution to oppose the Presiden't Climate Action Plan. Taylor says, "[T]he wisdom of costly government action to restrict such carbon dioxide emissions requires proving several additional points. First, temperatures must be unusually warm. Second, humans must be causing most of the warming. Third, a warmer climate must be very harmful to human health and welfare. Fourth, reducing U.S. carbon dioxide emissions must substantially reduce global warming. Proponents of the federal government’s carbon dioxide restrictions must prove all four of the above points. In reality, they cannot prove even one of the above points."
