James M. Taylor, Heartland’s senior fellow for environment policy, was a guest October 8 on “Wilcow!” on The Blaze TV, Glenn Beck’s outstanding online network. Taylor was on with Brad Schaeffer to discuss the question: “Who’s to blame for high gas prices?”
As James points out, Mitt Romney was right on in the debate when he called President Obama out for falsely taking credit for the energy revolution taking place in America. The increase in domestic energy production is taking place largely on private and state-owned lands, while the feds continue to slow-walk permits to get energy out of the ground on federal lands. Andrew Wilcow noted correctly that Heartland has been doing “great research” on energy and environmental policy. We appreciate the plug.
