Wrote an article titled "Climate Alarmism and the Poor" stating that developing countries must be included in the Kyoto Protocol because they produce more greenhouse gases than developed countries. "Also, people in repressed nations deserve the chance to become wealthy and develop as we in the west have. If trying to combat climate change becomes the driver for change towards freedom then so be it. These countries will rightly resist any international efforts to curb their use of energy; what we must do is invest in new technologies with them, not export our anti-energy regulations."

Return to Rio: Reexamining Climate Change Science, Economics, and Policy,eventID.669/event_detail.asp
"This AEI conference seeks to restart the climate-change dialogue by returning to the spirit and purpose of the Rio consensus in the weeks leading up to the opening of the 9th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Milan, Italy, on December 1, 2003. Panelists will discuss the science of climate change, which has grown more uncertain and more susceptible to political influence in recent years, and public policy issues such as how to spend research money and spur innovation. A return to Rio will offer the opportunity to reexamine how dangerous warming is likely to be, what steps should be taken to address it, and what can be done to reestablish the common sense consensus that led to the Framework Convention."
