Mero Testifies Before Legislativ…

As a request from Senator Scott Jenkins, Paul T. Mero, president of Sutherland Institute, testified before the Public Utilities and Technology Interim Committee on November 14, 2007, adding another viewpoint to the debate on climate change.  Mero read aloud a portion from testimony of Alabama state climatologist Dr. John Christy, who was delayed in Washington, D.C. testifying before the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee.  “Simply put, we cannot say with any confidence to you or to the American taxpayer that by adopting policy X we will cause an impact on Y on the weather of the climate system.  The basic problem is that if policy X is similar to those being proposed today, the impact of emissions will be essentially imperceptible and thus the attempt to measure or predict its consequence on the climate will be essentially impossible.”
