Host: Competitive Enterprise Institute. Proposing their own "Cap and Trade," Senators John Kerry (D-Mass) and Barbara Boxer (D-Cali) have put forth a draft of the new "pollution reduction bill." John Kerry stressed that the bill is about security. Boxer was interviewed by C-SPAN which will broadcast it on Sunday with her insight of how protecting consumers from energy cost increases will reduce emissions. Dr Lindzen will dispute some of the claims made by global warming alarmists, present real climate facts, and put into question the purpose of this bill. Aside from a professor at MIT, Dr. Lindzen is a dynamical meteorologist with interests in the broad topics of climate, planetary waves, monsoon meteorology, planetary atmospheres, and hydrodynamic instability. His research involves studies of the role of the tropics in mid-latitude weather and global heat transport, the moisture budget and its role in global change, the origins of ice ages, seasonal effects in atmospheric transport, stratospheric waves, and the observational determination of climate sensitivity.
