WPC's Center for the Environment brings balance to the environmental debate by promoting the idea that human progress and prosperity work in a free economy to protect the environment.
Todd Myers, Director of Environment, November, 2013
Politicians like to argue that only they can guide effective energy and environmental policy for the future. The record, however, is quite different.
Nothing demonstrates the contrast between energy policy run by politicians and one guided by a free market than the tale of the electric car versus the hybrid.

“The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change raises the level of alarm. … global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust deniers...”
