“Blackouts” Today, “Greenouts” Tomorrow — Plus a Plug for Somebody Else

Townhall.com was kind enough to publish my piece on the Great Blackout of 2003 as a guest column today. I take a look at the anti-energy policies of the leading environmentalist groups, because if we follow their advice, we’ll have blackouts — “greenouts” — on a routine basis.

TownHall is really a great resource. I particularly like their daily What’s New emails because, by reviewing a single email, you can pretty much see everything posted on every major website of the conservative movement over the previous day. A huge timesaver. Plus, if you only want to review new posts on particular topics, say, health care or defense, you can do that, too. They even archive everything in their Issues Library.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
