CEI’s Myron Ebell this afternoon participated on an Earth Day panel hosted by the Heritage Foundation. Other panelists were: Daren Bakst, Heritage Foundation; Steve Milloy, Murray Energy Corporation and David Schnare, Energy & Environmental Legal Institute.

Here’s how Heritage described the event:

There is a lot to celebrate this Earth Day. The environment continues to get cleaner. Air and water quality are much better. Human achievement and development are helping to create a more prosperous nation that can better address environmental challenges. This important success story often gets lost in the misinformation campaigns that try to paint a picture of a country with dire environmental conditions. This panel will highlight environmental trends, dispel environmental myths, and demonstrate how human progress is critical to the well-being of humans and the environment.

Below, I’ve posted video of the panel.
