Jim Holt on Environment

Republican challenger for Senate (AR)


Support tax incentives for R&D of emission controls

In regards to emission controls, let’s give research tax incentives. Let’s avoid unfunded mandates whenever possible. We don’t have all of the information needed for a just decision here. The government has already gone to great lengths for thorough emission controls. Unless the science can show us that the current standards are causing people health problems, I think we should stick with them. If my exhaust is making other people ill, then yes, I want the standards tightened.

Open Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil exploration

Part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should be opened for oil exploration. We need the energy and we must become less dependent on other unreliable countries that dictate the market at their whims. It is truly a national security issue. The choice of either accessing our nation’s energy resources or keeping our land beautiful is a false choice. We can do both.

The US should not re-enter the Kyoto treaty

The US should not re-enter the Kyoto treaty process to limit global warming. The difference in the treaty’s rules between first and third world countries puts Americans at a distinct disadvantage. Plus scientists disagree on all the different hypotheses and theories of global warming. We don’t know how big the threat of global warming is, or even if it will be a blessing for some areas. Nor do we know if human activity is the real cause of any global warming that might be occurring.
