Maryville College President to Speak on ‘The Cost of Green Energy’

 

KNOXVILLE—Maryville College President Tom Bogart will discuss his latest book on Tuesday, November 1, at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Toyota Auditorium of the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy.

Tom BogartBogart will be talking about his book, The False Promise of Green Energy, which he co-authored with Andrew P. Morriss, professor of law and business, University of Alabama; Roger E. Meiners, professor of economics and law at the University of Texas at Arlington; and Andrew D. Dorchak, head of reference at the law library at Case Western University.

Bogart will be signing copies of his book after the presentation. The book will be available for purchase on site.

According to the publisher, the Cato Institute, the book is a “nearly unprecedented evaluation of claims by green energy and green jobs proponents that we can improve the economy and the environment, almost risk-free, by spending billions of dollars on what are ultimately false promises.”

Bogart came to Maryville College in 2011. Prior to that, he was an economics professor at Case Western Reserve University and dean of academic affairs at York College of Pennsylvania. He has a doctorate in economics from Princeton University, where his work was recognized with the Outstanding Dissertation Award from the National Tax Association.

Bogart’s other books include The Economics of Cities and Suburbs and Don’t Call It Sprawl: Metropolitan Structure in the 21st Century.
