March 17 Federal Policy Dinner: Can Governments Legislate Climate and Weather? —

Climate Change is real, happening now, and mankind is to blame for it, right?  Wrong completely, says Marc Morano, executive editor of the incredible website “Climatedepot.com."  In his eye opening and highly entertaining presentation, Mr. Morano shows that it’s not true that 97 percent of climate scientists believe global warming is “man made,” and that it’s not true that carbon dioxide and other trace gas emissions control the environment.  Morano is guest speaker at the Jefferson Institute's March 17 Federal Policy Dinner.  For more information or to register, click here!

January 22 Federal Policy Dinner:  How To Restart REAL Health Care Reform

*** NEW ***

January 22 Federal Policy Dinner: How To Restart REAL Health Care Reform — For decades America's health care debate has pitted Left against Right, federal against state, public against private.  All sides, however, have shared a similar, inhibiting mindset -- an excessive aversion to risk and deference to medical insiders -- instead of stressing the ideal goal of better health care for more people at lower cost on a continuous basis.  Dr. Robert Graboyes is author of a new study showing how this "Fortress-like" mentality has limited innovation in health care, constraining medical advances and raising costs.  This is a dinner and discussion you won't want to miss!  For more information and to register, click here!
