More global warming scam Tuesday.

Watts Up With That?

Can the rest of America afford its Alice in Wonderland energy policies for? (Can California?)

Guest essay by Paul Driessen

California loves to be seen as the trendsetter on energy and environmental policies. But can we really afford to adopt their laws and regulations in the rest of America?
