Nick Loris america energy firstNick Loris will be speaking at the America First Energy Conference.

Nicolas (Nick) Loris is the Herbert and Joyce Morgan Fellow at the Heritage Foundation,  where he specializes in energy and environmental policy. Loris is also a frequent contributor to the Daily Signal, where he can often be found denying the science of climate change and downplaying its effects on the planet.

Loris started his career as an associate with the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation. During that time, he also obtained a Masters of Economics from George Mason University,  a school who’s economics department and law program have received over half of all Koch Foundation donations to universities ($46.5 million) since 2005.

Loris recently wrote a Daily Signal article, The Myth That Climate Change Created Harvey, Irma, where he downplayed the role of climate change in extreme weather events, stating that:

“instead of blaming man-made greenhouse gas emissions, climate catastrophists should see natural disasters for what they really are: natural.”
