The James Madison Institute (JMI) is a Florida-based libertarian organization. JMI publishes seasonal journals that have included a plea to Florida legislators not to act on global warming following “climategate,” the promotion of fossil fuel use, and the dismissal of American jobs created by the clean energy sector. 

JMI is a member of the State Policy Network.

James Madison Institute director Mark Crosswhite is the President and CEO of Gulf Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company. James Madison Institute’s research advisory council members includes James Taylor, the Heartland Institute's senior fellow for environmental policy. Taylor is managing editor of Heartland's Environment and Climate News, a nonscientific publication dedicated to promoting doubt over global warming and its implications. James Taylor frequently authors political articles belittling climate science. JMI's research advisory council includes numerous ties to Koch-funded groups, including the Institute for Humane Studies and the Koch Associate Program, the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, the Independence Institute, and the American Legislative Exchange Council.
