Political Climate
Mar 06, 2007

Global climate change is among today’s most visible and controversial areas of science-based policy. By almost any measure — number of researchers, size of budgets, attention from the public and from policymakers — the importance of this field has grown dramatically during the last decade. The collective annual budget of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), a clearinghouse organization charged with coordinating research sponsored by a dozen different US government agencies, hovers near $1.8 billion (U.S. Global Change Research Program, 1998). Although the USGCRP covers many areas in addition to atmospheric science, a large number of these — including oceanography, ecology, agriculture, and forest studies — are linked via the question of how a changing climate may affect them.

The climate change debate is here to stay, and as America warms to the idea of environmental conservation on a grander scale, it’s vital that conservatives change the debate before government regulation expands yet again and personal freedom is pushed closer toward extinction.
