Sildalis online without prescription, Worried About Climate Change. Promote Free Markets!
by Todd Wynn
Every day more and more Americans are growing skeptical of the climate change doomsday claims and plans to ration energy through cap-and-trade type proposals, generic
Economic freedom is known to have a profound effect on the efficient allocation of resources,
Beginning in 1995, The Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation have tracked economic freedom of countries around the world, sildalis online without prescription.
When this data was combined with other economic and energy variables, some remarkable relationships were discovered. Analyzing 165 countries over a ten-year period (1995-2004), CPI found that higher levels of economic freedom lead to higher levels of energy efficiency and lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions per dollar of gross domestic product. Sildalis online without prescription, In addition to having lower energy and greenhouse gas intensity overall, the more economically free countries have experienced declines in carbon and energy intensity over time, while countries with less economic freedom actually increased their carbon and energy intensity levels over the ten-year range.
Also, the analysis found that one additional freedom score point would increase a country's energy efficiency by 0.82%. With regard to greenhouse gases, one additional freedom score point would decrease the country's greenhouse gases per dollar of GDP by 1.01%
Thus, a country's level of economic freedom is a significant and negative factor in determining the amount of energy used and the amount of emissions produced per dollar of GDP. This conclusion contradicts the perceived notion that top-down government regulation is the only way to foster energy efficiency and lower greenhouse gas intensity. Therefore, by advocating for more government intervention into various aspects of the economy, one is essentially advocating for a less energy efficient and more greenhouse gas intense economy.
At the same time most Americans are realizing that the alarmist climate change rhetoric is exaggerated nonsense, overly anxious environmentalists need to take a second look at the merits of free markets and economic prosperity as a potential no-regrets strategy for reducing carbon emissions and energy use.
