KEY DEEDS

6 December, 2004
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."
