10 Principles of Energy Policy

Congress appears poised to pass a “cap-and-tax” bill this year, despite warnings it would cause even more economic hardship for American citizens and businesses. This booklet explains why “energy independence” is an illusion, global warming is not a crisis, and nearly every energy policy cooked up in Washington over the past decade is wrong-headed.

This booklet reflects the privatization lessons learned by governments in the United States and around the world and lays out a practical guide of best practices. (28 pages)

Fact vs. Fiction

Global Warming: Facts vs. Faith

“The politicization of science is tantamount to killing it,” writes Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham. “It is our collective responsibility to champion the use of responsible science to inform politicians. There are hopeful signs that some true believers are beginning to harbor doubts about anthropogenic global warming. We can only hope the focus of the discussion returns to scientific evidence before we have perpetrated an economic disaster on ourselves and generations to come.” (18 Pages)
