California’s Energy Policies: a Model for the Nation?

Key lawmakers are now promoting California’s energy and global warming policies as a model for the federal government and other States to follow. Thomas Tanton’s talk will review California’s policies and show that they have had significant costs as well as other detrimental effects and are likely to have even higher costs and even worse effects in the future. California’s policies have led to the highest electricity and gasoline prices in the continental U. S. and contributed to the de-industrialization of California.

Mr. Tanton’s talk is based on his new White Paper for the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Copies will be available at the event and online at
