Policy Peril: Why Global Warming Policies Are More Dangerous Than Global Warming Itself

Recorded on August 10, 2009

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore's bestselling book and Academy Award-winning documentary, was a remarkable success in 2006.  But has its claim that global warming is a dire and imminent crisis stood the test of time, and, for that matter, was it ever really credible in the first place?  Policy Peril: Why Global Warming Policies Are More Dangerous Than Global Warming Itself emphatically says "NO."  This 40-minute documentary, produced by Competitive Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis, systematically debunks virtually every terrifying assertion Gore made.  It also sets out a far more realistic and sensible approach to the issue, one that weighs the risks of global warming against the risks of misguided global warming policy.  Join us for a screening of Policy Peril, followed by a discussion of the policy implications in the ongoing global warming, climate change debate.
