Thank you, Chairman Boxer and members of this committee for inviting me to testify today on global warming issues in the power plant sector.
I offer the following points for your consideration as the committee deliberates on global warming policy.
I. Global warming policy is not risk free.
There is a tendency in the global warming debate to see peril and risk only in mankind’s enhancement of the greenhouse effect and to view global warming policy as risk free. However, there are risks on both sides of the ledger.
