The Capital Cabal is proud to produce this event in partnership with Ipsos Public Affairs .  This the first installment of the Face the Facts series, where Ipsos conducts exclusive public opinion research of voters and the general population addressing a variety of energy related topics.

  • What are the triggers to compel consumers to "go green"?
  • What is the role of national security in energy policy?
