Picking Winners & Losers

(UPDATE: Click here to watch the video of yesterday's energy conference playing at NRO's "Planet Gore." Many thanks to NRO's Kathryn Lopez for putting it up....)

Powerline ran a nice little recap of the National Review Institute's energy and national security forum I moderated yesterday down in Washington.

My three key questions:

(1) Why not let the market decide the winners and losers rather than the government?

(2) How sure are we that man's actions are responsible for climate change?

(3) And even if we're quite sure that we're behind climate change, what reason is there to believe that accelerating the movement away from traditional energy sources will have any meaningful impact in stemming global warming?
