Quotes

"Government-enforced emissions limits of the sort contemplated under the Kyoto Protocol would have a severe impact on American families. Whether Kyoto leads to the imposition of energy taxes, supply controls, or some other form of regulatory strictures, the impact will be the same: higher prices for all goods and services that rely upon energy use." Taken from "Killing Kyoto Without Regrets," CEI Update, 10/9 [3]
"While the proposed global climate treaty will not reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it could increase air pollution of all kinds. That's because energy-intensive industries seeking to avoid the restrictions are likely to migrate to Latin America, Asia and Africa, where industrial processes use more energy and emit more pollutants per unit of output." Taken from "Kyoto Madness" [4]
