"Green energy" garners a lot of attention in the mainstream media. Many politicians promote wind and solar as necessary solutions to climate change – but are unwilling to discuss that the fact that these are underdeveloped technologies with unsustainable costs. Government subsidies and tax breaks prop up these industries and distort the market – and cover up the true price of renewable energy.
Join us in Dallas on July 26 for a salon dinner with Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Robert Bryce, whose recent National Review article discussed the “delusions of renewable energy." We’re having a conversation that cuts through the hype around renewables and focuses on the real implications of crony capitalism in the energy industry.
