Republicans’ Point of View On Environment


Posted by  • October 26, 2012 •
Mitt Romney is a Republican and does not feel global warming is an issue that needs to be worked on. He feels that “there remains a lack of scientific consensus on the issue- on the extent of the warming, the extend of the human contribution, and the severity of the risk,” he wrote. Ferber H. Ferber is a professor at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) who teaches American, state, local Politics and environmental policy. He said that the Republican point of view on this topic is “scientist’s projection 30 years from now they will feel that there is not enough proof and it’s very expensive to deal with.”
Romney feels that using money for research for global warming can hurt the economy. Romney wants to strip the Environmental Protection Agency and its ability to control the greenhouse gas emissions and he is against fuel economy standards. Also he feels tax credit to wind energy is not needed. “Romney does not in favor tax incentives because of less return in deductions to the country” said Mr. Ferber. This means USA could go in more debt by doing the tax incentives.

Romney along with the other deniers are all idiots, but nevertheless entitled to their opinions. However, as people who make public policy their views on this subject will ultimately create serious problems, if not disaster. Sticking your head in the sand is never a reasonable strategy in dealing with problems.

The real problem is that there is no data to support the idea that wind turbines are accomplishing anything in reducing the use of fossil fuel to make electricity.

The wind business has become not an experiment, which is all it ever should have been, but an industry unto itself now bent exclusively on its own preservation.

Too many forces and dollars are involved with Big Wind that it has beome almost impossible to let it go as a failed energy experiment.

(That doesn't mean we should keep feeding it, however.)
