Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) denies the science of global warming and opposes federal policies to address it.

Americans for Tax Reform is a member of the State Policy Network.

ATR focused on costs and denial in their 2008 "Cost of Government" report. In 2009, ATR's Todd Hollenbeck (who now works at the Koch-funded Foundation for Economic Education and was previously a Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow at the Independence Institute and a Students for Liberty campus coordinator) promoted a film featuring climate science deniers called "Not Evil, Just Wrong," smeared Al Gore in attempts to discredit climate science, and encouraged ATR's members to oppose national climate legislation. Despite promoting doubt over climate science, Hollenbeck has no scientific qualifications.
