American Friends of the Institute for Economic Affairs is a 501(c)(3) organization set up to allow Americans to donate to the Institute for Economic Affairs - a London based free-market think tank.

The Institute for Economic Affairs researches and publishes a number of books and articles on keeping government involvement in society to a minimum. As such they do not support regulations or subsidies pertaining to environmental health and pollution control. The IEA questions not only the validity of climate change but explores its percieved benefits to agricultural productivity. Above all, they believe that a free-market system, largely ignoring what they call "climate alarmism," will somehow create a solution to global warming.

QUOTES

17 March, 2004
"Government intervention in the name of energy sustainability is the major threat to real energy sustainability and the provision of affordable, reliable energy to growing economies worldwide. Free-market structures and the wealth generated by markets help communities to best adapt to climate change."
