While pushing for "green" energy is politically popular, these mandates require massive taxpayer subsidies and have done little to alleviate costs for consumers. As America looks ahead, there still remain viable oil and natural gas options providing better and cheaper solutions. New, cleaner technology ensures cheaper production from these already reliable sources.

To discuss these and other energy issues, the Mackinac Center for Public Policy will host an Issues & Ideas forum featuring several energy experts at noon on Nov. 9 in Lansing at the Michigan Restaurant Association. The speakers will be Hal Fitch, state Director of the Office of Geological Survey, and Karen Alderman Harbert, former assistant secretary for policy and international affairs at the U.S. Department of Energy and currently the president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Institute for 21st Century Energy. The Mackinac Center’s senior environmental analyst, Russ Harding, will moderate the discussion.

A free lunch is included with your registration. Please register by Friday, Nov. 4.
