Follow the Money
This all sounds okay except for one thing. Who is funding the Institute? As I read through the article I kept thinking I would be offered that information by the reporter. Maybe the uranium industry? Maybe Yates Petroleum? Maybe the Koch brothers? Anti government regulation groups like the US Chamber of Commerce or the Wall Street Investment Banks? Who knows?
Since this facility is soaking up tax dollars by being quartered at NMSU we should know if there is any outside funding for this Institute and who is providing it. The Institute says it is non partisan but the lack of the Journal's inquisitiveness is telling.
