As environmentalism has become socially popular, public policy has become increasingly geared toward cultivating a green appearance rather than helping the environment. From "green" buildings to biofuels, we too often fall for trendy environmental ideas that waste resources on approaches that fail. Join us for a discussion of how Congress can avoid eco-fads and create sound environmental policy that focuses on achieving real environmental results.
