Combating a warming world requires a portfolio of strategies, including exploring innovative new approaches to apply science and engineering, according to a new report from the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA). The report warns that focusing solely on reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is too inflexible and politically unrealistic.
Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), a potent greenhouse gas, helps warm the climate. Absent water vapor, CO 2 and other natural greenhouse gases that trap a portion of the sun's radiation, the Earth would be about 60ºF colder than it is now — an icebox.

President Bush's investment tax cuts helped stimulate the economy and increase government revenue, and raising the capital gains tax rate, as some are now proposing, would be harmful to the economy at a time when it is once again in need of stimulus, according to a new study from the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA).
The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) has made a key addition, naming Terry Neese as a Distinguished Fellow. Neese, co-founder and past president of Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), will spearhead the NCPA's examination of how public policies impact working families and small businesses.

As Congress debates whether to renew tax cuts enacted early in the George W. Bush presidency, as well as various economic stimulus plans, critics often label the measures as "tax cuts for the rich." Yet a new report from the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) says the Bush tax cuts made the tax code more progressive, no matter how progressivity is measured.
Critics complain that the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts gave the greatest tax relief to the wealthiest taxpayers. However, every major tax bill over the past 15 years — both Republican and Democrat — has increased the progressivity of the federal income tax system.
Over the last 25 years, the wage gap between Mexico and the United States has grown progressively wider, making U.S. jobs increasingly attractive. This is a major reason for the increasing influx of immigrants from Mexico to the United States.

Noting the state's population and economic growth in relation to the state's available power and energy resources, NCPA Senior Fellow H. Sterling Burnett today told attendees at the Texas Public Policy Foundation's 6th Annual Policy Orientation for the Texas Legislature that Texas needs more power capacity for both peak-time and normal operations. Speaking on a panel about the state's energy needs, Burnett said coal may provide the solution.
