Why are gas prices and heating bills so high? Are the green energy policies advocated by climate activists helping reduce carbon emissions? How can the free-market help tackle climate change? To answer these questions and more, the Adam Smith Society on Tuesday, December 6, at 8:00 p.m. ET hosted a virtual discussion with Manhattan Institute senior fellow Jim Meigs on his City Journal piece, “The Green War on Clean Energy” ​and his recent MI report, “Back from the Dead: Prospects for Restoring Closed Nuclear Plants to Operation.”

As an installment of our Readers’ Roundtable series, this was a closed Zoom call with the author.

The Adam Smith Society Readers’ Roundtable is a virtual quarterly reading club that provides members an opportunity to dive deeper into some of today’s most insightful and influential works on free market ideas and public policy. Complimentary access to reading materials is guaranteed for supporting members of the Adam Smith Society.
