>>CEI Urges Senate to Reject Ruinous Financial Reform Bill

Read the letter here.

>>Shaping the Debate

Chris Horner’s citation in the Wall Street Journal Europe
“In the U.S., where last year’s Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulated climate-change research to the tune of $35.7 billion, there exist few enforcement mechanisms for those seeking to examine the fruits of that investment. That helps explain why it took Competitive Enterprise Institute scholar Christopher Horner more than two years, and the threat of legal action before he finally received temperature information as requested from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.”
