Restoring the Sciences

National Association of Scholars

Do we need to radically transform how we power our society? The conventional climate change wisdom says that we must do so, and with the utmost urgency, because catastrophic consequences will follow if we do not. Rarely considered are the catastrophic consequences that could follow if we do.

This discussion features Mark P. Mills, a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a Faculty Fellow at Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science. He has a long and distinguished career studying energy technology, petroleum geopolitics, and industrial policy, including a stint in President Reagan’s White House Science Office. He also is the host of the Manhattan Institute’s podcast, "The Last Optimist," where he explores the implications of energy and technological transformation. To see more about Mark Mills, visit his Manhattan Institute page.

This is the eighth episode of the National Association of Scholars' ongoing series, Restoring the Sciences.

The discussion was moderated by J. Scott Turner, Director of the Intrusion of Diversity in the Sciences Project for the National Association of Scholars.
