Chris Horner is a popular campus speaker you can host on campus through Young America's Foundation. In the last few weeks, he spoke at University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and Amherst College.
Horner is a best-selling author of books on “global warming” and environmental policy: Red Hot Lies: How Global Warming Alarmists Use Threats, Fraud and Deception to Keep You Misinformed (Regnery, 2008) and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism (Regnery, 2007), which spent half of 2007 on the New York Times
bestseller list. His third book, "Power Grab: How Obama's 'Green' Policies Steal Will Your Freedom and Bankrupt America" was released on April 19, also by Regnery.
Horner is a senior fellow with the Washington DC think tank the
Competitive Enterprise Institute and affiliated with European
counterpart organizations. An attorney in Washington, DC, Horner has
represented think tanks, scientists and Members of the U.S. House and
Senate on matters of environmental policy in the federal courts.
Horner has testified before the United States Congress and other legislators worldwide. A familiar face and voice providing legal, policy and political
commentary on both television and radio, Horner has appeared on many major national and international television and radio programs. Mr. Horner has also been a guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Glenn Beck has hailed him as a "Watchdog" and Rush Limbaugh called
him "a longtime go to guy on global warming extremism." Greenpeace has
repeatedly targeted Mr. Horner, by stealing his garbage on a weekly
basis, issuing press releases announcing with whom he dines and
including him in various other hysterical publications including "A Field Guide to Climate Criminals" distributed at the UN
climate meeting in Montreal in December 2005.
Horner received his Juris Doctorate from Washington
University in his home town of St. Louis where he received the Judge
Samuel Breckenridge Award for Advocacy. He lives outside
Charlottesville, VA with his family.
