In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, H. Sterling Burnett, managing editor of Environment & Climate News speaks with Merrill Matthews, Jr. Matthews, Resident Scholar at the Institute for Policy Innovation and a contributor at Forbes.com, also serves as Vice Chairman of the Texas Advisory Committee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Burnett and Matthews discuss the foolish policy decisions the Obama administration has undertaken on energy policy.
While the main focus of Merrill’s work has been in health policy he has also worked on energy and environmental policy including co-authoring a couple of my early pieces on climate change. Matthews talks about the Obama administrations energy polcies, including restraining domestic oil and gas production and blocking expanded oil and gas pipelines, which would be both good for the economy and better for the environment than shipping oil by rail.
