The Science & Public Policy Institute, an ally of The Heartland Institute, reviewed the Arkansas Governor’s Commission on Global Warming, which issued its final report late last year.
The report contained 54 recommendations for actions the state of Arkansas could take to mitigate the potential impacts that global warming might have at a projected cost of $3.7 billion spread over 17 years.
The Science & Public Policy Institute says, “Although the legislation that created this commission directed it to study the science of global warming and consider the economic impact, unfortunately the commission did neither.
“In fact, in a 490 page report only four and one-half pages citing scarcely a dozen documents, none of which were peer-reviewed papers appearing in scientific journals, were presented as evidence of anthropogenic global warming.
“Rather than study the science a basic assumption was made by the consultant – and commissioners were presumed to agree with the premise – that activities of man contribute significantly to dangerous climate change.”
SPPI’s report, “A Storm of Errors,” makes great reading, and ought to result in a demand by Arkansas taxpayers for a refund.
