IAIN MURRAY is the senior fellow in energy, science, and technology at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and a frequent commentator on FOX News, CNN Headline News, and the BBC. His articles have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, Investor's Business Daily, the Financial Times, and many other outlets. Educated at Oxford, the University of London, and the Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, he now lives in a nicely wooded tract of Northern Virginia where Al Gore's anti-environmental energy gourmandizing is not welcome. His work, and more information on free enterprise, can be found at CEI.org.
