From The Washington Examiner's Beltway Confidential:

A copy of the agenda was obtained Myron Ebell, director of energy and global warming policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and a staunch critic of carbon taxes. He sent it out on an email list to friends and colleagues.

“We must kill this incredibly harmful idea as quickly as possible” Ebell wrote.

He told The Washington Examiner that the agenda was proof that AEI was engaged in a “conspiracy” to help enact a carbon tax. Ebell said he was given a copy of the agenda by a trusted source.
