Summary In this publication of a libertarian think tank in Washington, DC, Morriss (law and business, U. of Alabama), and fellow legal experts and economists argue that sources and related policies of green energy, e.g., wind and solar, are not environmentally sound, cost-effective, or trade-conducive. Counter to proponents, e.g., they claim that intercity travel by car and bus is more efficient than that by light- or high-speed rail. Maps, tables, and figures represent US resource production, usage patterns, and cost trends.
