Trump’s Energy Policy: Promise or Peril?

February 22, 2017 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM EST

Hayek Auditorium, Cato Institute

Featuring Robert L. Bradley, CEO and Founder, Institute for Energy Research; Adele Morris, Senior Fellow and Policy Director, Brookings Institution; and Catrina Rorke, Senior Fellow and Energy Policy Director, R Street Institute; moderated by Peter Russo, Director of Congressional Affairs, Cato Institute.

In the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump said that he would stop Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, “cancel” the 2015 Paris Accord on greenhouse gases, and end what he called “the war on coal.” Now, the President says, is the time for action. What will he do regarding energy? How can he do it? What will be the consequences? Beyond those questions of the moment lies the larger issue: What should he be doing? Please join us for a lively look at energy policy in the new administration on February 22 at 4pm.
