Doubling Down on Failure illustrated the consequences of renewable energy mandates. A 50 percent renewable energy standard in Minnesota would cost $80.2 billion, raise electricity rates by 40 percent, and unemploy 21,000 Minnesotans all to impact global warming by only 0.0006 °C. Since the paper’s release, we have worked with other states to replicate our methodology in their locales.

Want to learn more about Doubling Down on Failure? If you are in the Willmar area, you can join Isaac Orr, author of Doubling Down on Failure, for breakfast next Tuesday, August 27. More information here.
