Earth Day & BP Anniversary: AEI on Environmental Issues

On the one year anniversary of the BP oil spill and a few days before Earth Day 2011, here is the latest American Enterprise Institute (AEI) work on environmental issues:

In an updated and expanded study of public attitudes on environment issues, American Enterprise Institute (AEI) senior fellow and public opinion expert Karlyn Bowman explores trends from major pollsters on the environment, offshore drilling, gas prices, nuclear power, and global warming. Bowman notes that attitudes have shifted significantly in a number of areas since 2010.

AEI environmental expert Steven (Steve) Hayward announces today his annual 2011 Almanac of Environmental Trends, which covers seven major indicators of environmental progress including (1) Air Quality, (2) Energy, (3) Climate Change, (4) Water Quality, (5) Toxic Chemicals, (6) Forests and Land, and (7) Biodiversity.

In a post on the Enterprise Blog titled "Never Let an Oil Crisis Go to Waste," AEI environmental scientist Kenneth (Ken) Green examines, one year after the BP spill, the effects of the disaster on the environment, and the impact of increasing the use of biofuels such as corn ethanol.

AEI scholar Karlyn Bowman can be reached at 202.862.5910 or kbowman@aei.org (assistant andrew.rugg@aei.org or 202.862.5917). Steve Hayward and Ken Green are reachable at shayward@aei.org and kgreen@aei.org respectively (research assistant for both hiwa.alaghebandian@aei.org or 202.862.5820).
