Jim Ott issues Global Warming Warning


In late July of 2008, I blogged that recommendations  made by Governor Doyle’s Task Force on Global Warming “
constitute government intervention at its worst with the purpose of controlling many facets of your day to day lives.”

After listing some of the policy changes endorsed by the Task Force, I continued:

“Policies endorsed by the Task Force would regulate your car, lawnmower, boat, tractor, and 4-wheeler, dictate how many miles you can drive, lower speed limits, encourage you to walk, regulate the trucking industry, and impose an ethanol mandate. Making matters worse, and fueling my skepticism is the fact the report fails to specify the cost of these initiatives to Wisconsin residents and their effect on our fragile state economy that grew by a paltry one percent last year. If Wisconsin were to implement the Task Force recommendations, it is a safe bet heating bills, electric bills and gas prices would all increase and our economy would continue to suffer.”

That was well over a year ago.

The MacIver Institute reports that state Representative Jim Ott is forecasting legislation to implement some of the outrageous Task Force policy recommendations are right around the corner.
