The John Locke Foundation (JLF) is a conservative think-tank based in North Carolina, focused on local and state issues. JLF is a member of the State Policy Network.

JLF advocates for inaction on global warming, stating in a 2005 policy brief that "a green house gas reduction policy would have only costs and no benefits." In 2007, JLF released a policy report that publishes several climate denier myths, intended to instruct average North Carolina citizens on refuting global warming

On John Locke Foundation's "Right Angles" blog, the "ClimateGate" coverage calls for a "reconsideration of 'green' efforts" and notes that some have tried to "rescind the Oscar ex-Vice President Al Gore received for…'An Inconvenient Truth,' which has been widely discredited for numerous factual errors."
