E&EI Co-Sponsors Duke Law Symposium: Conservative Visions of our Environmental Future
With representatives from E&EI, Hoover Institution, R Street Institute, Heritage Foundation, John Locke Foundation, Property and Environment Research Center, NC Environmental Management Commission, and NC General Assembly.
September 24, 2012: Reynolds Theater, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina
The Energy and Enterprise Initiative co-sponsored and participated in a symposium at Duke University called Conservative Visions of our Environmental Future, put on by the Duke Environmental Law and Policy Forum. Other co-sponsors were Duke Law Federalist Society, Duke College Republicans, Nicholas Institute, and the Nicholas School of the Environment.
Why is today’s environmentalism so closely linked with liberal politics? What is a conservative approach to meeting our energy needs, managing our natural resources, and addressing climatological debates and disasters? What roles can fiscal conservatism and the free market play? How should conservative perspectives be applied in North Carolina, as well as nationally? Politicians, academics and professionals convened to articulate their conservative vision of our environmental future.
