E&E Legal Senior Policy Fellows Steve Milloy and Greg Walcher, along with President Craig Richardson were three of the presenters at the Heartland Institute’s 2018 America First Energy Conference. The two-day event, held at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, “outlined the advances for Energy Freedom we’ve seen come about under President Trump, and looked forward to the advances we’ll see in the years to come.”
Milloy, a President Trump EPA Transition Team member, joined fellow transition team members, Amy Oliver Cooke, an Independence Institute executive and E&E Legal Senior Fellow, and CEI’s Myron Ebell. The panel reviewed “[EPA] reform victories so far and [a] look ahead at what else needs to be done to reverse the overreach of the Obama administration.”
Walcher participated on a panel that looked at climate lawsuits against energy companies and the government. Specifically, he provided an update on the status of the “Children’s Climate Lawsuit,” a suit brought by the usual climate change suspects who are using kids as a news hook.
Finally, Richardson participated on a panel, Fiduciary Malpractice: The ‘Sustainable’ Investment Movement. He covered the phenomenon of “virtue signaling,” and how this once attempt at morally superiority to push a leftist agenda is now being taken-up to an increasing degree by major corporations who tended to shy away from controversy in the past.
