Howdy from Austin, Texas

Howdy, y’all. I’m in Austin, Texas today giving a presentation on our award-nominated research, Doubling Down on Failure at The Heartland Institute’s Emerging Issues Forum.

This is a really good opportunity because it gives me a chance to share our research with state legislators throughout the country, and hopefully it will allow other think tanks to see the value in having a voice on energy issues.

I’ve been on this panel in the past (I used to work for Heartland), so here’s a bit of a throwback from 2016. I can post the video for this year once it is published.

If you have any suggestions on good places to eat in Austin, feel free to email me.
