Upcoming Event on Economics of Global Warming with James Taylor (not the singer)

The Rio Grande Foundation and CARE are co-sponsoring a discussion of the economics of global warming with James Taylor of the Heartland Institute. The weather this winter may be frightful, with record lows and massive snowfall throughout the northern hemisphere, but no matter what the thermometer says, the issue of Global Warming is going to be heating up in the coming year. After all, global warming true-believers now control the White House and Congress not to mention the Governor’s Mansion and New Mexico’s Legislature.
What does this mean for New Mexicans and the reeling US economy? How will “cap-and-trade,” carbon taxes, or increased renewable portfolio standards impact consumers and businesses as they fight to keep their heads above water? Will global warming legislation create “green” jobs?
On January 13, we will be at the Albuquerque Museum in the Auditorium
2000 Mountain Road, NW Albuquerque
On January 14, we will be at the State Land Office, Morgan Hall
310 Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe
(NOTE: Attendees cannot park in the State Land Office parking lot, but must park at the PERA lot, one block east and a few blocks south of the Land Office.)
Both events will last from approximately 5:00 to 7:00PM with the first 30 minutes reserved for a meet-and-greet including beverages and light snacks.
More information is available and RSVP’s can be made by calling 505-264-6090 or emailing us at: info@riograndefoundation.org
These events are free and open to the public. Listen to a podcast from this past weekend’s episode (dated January 3) of the Foundation’s radio show “Speaking Freely.”
