"U.S. Climate Policy: Facing the Trillion Dollar Question" by James K. Boyce
Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium  6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Any policy to limit U.S. carbon emissions will raise the price of fossil fuels. Consumers will pay more for gasoline, heating oil, natural gas, and electricity. The trillion dollar question lurking in the debate over climate policy is who will get the money: energy companies, the government, or the people?

James K. Boyce is an economics professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and director of the environment program at the Political Economy Research Institute.

Professor Boyce received his Ph.D. in economics from Oxford University. He is the author of Investing in Peace: Aid and Conditionality After Civil Wars (Oxford University Press 2002), The Political Economy of the Environment (Edward Elgar 2002), The Philippines: The Political Economy of Growth and Impoverishment in the Marcos Era (Macmillan 1993), and Agrarian Impasse in Bengal: Institutional Constraints to Technological Change (Oxford University Press 1987), and co-author of A Quiet Violence: View From a Bangladesh Village (with Betsy Hartmann, Zed Press 1983). He is the co-editor of Natural Assets: Democratizing Environmental Ownership (with Barry Shelley, Island Press 2003) and editor of Economic Policy for Building Peace: The Lessons of El Salvador (Lynne Rienner 1996). Professor Boyce's current work focuses on strategies for combining poverty reduction with environmental protection, and on the relationship between economic policies and issues of war and peace.

NY Assemblymember Kevin A. Cahill to speak at CEP
This Friday, New York State Assemblyman Kevin Cahill will address the graduate students at Bard CEP in a special class on NYS Energy Policy and Albany Politics.

We are honored to have Assemblyman Cahill as a guest lecturer.

With his characteristic forward-looking approach, Kevin Cahill has resiliently fought to protect our environment and preserve the beauty and natural resources of New York State for future generations. In recognition of his efforts, he was named Legislator of the Year by the Environmental Planning Lobby in 2008.

Appointed to the position of Chair of the Assembly Standing Committee on Energy in February of 2008, Assemblymember Cahill has made energy efficiency and independence a top priority and led the way on initiatives promoting renewable power generation, sustainable building practices and the development of a green workforce. Under his leadership, legislation has been passed to take proceeds from RGGI, the carbon emission cap and trade program, and direct the funding toward communities and small businesses to create a workface aimed at improving building energy efficiency. He has helped to increase investments in energy efficiency and renewable power, green the state’s facilities and vehicle fleet, and make New York’s net-metering law one of the most expansive in the country. These successes have set New York on the path to energy independence that will help to preserve our environment and insulate us from the economic uncertainty associated with the global energy markets.

National Climate Seminar
Anywhere, just call in!  3:00 pm
This Wednesday at 3 PM Eastern, The National Climate Seminar is pleased to welcome Mike Tidwell, Director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, who will be discussing the CLEAR legislation introduced by Senators Cantwell and Collins. Join us for a half an hour of important conversation. 

Call in number is 712-432-3100; conference code, 253385. Send advance questions for Tidwell to climate@bard.edu.

CLEAR is the “cap-and-dividend”  bill that returns most of the CO2 auction revenues directly to the public.  Mike will talk about how the Bill would work, and the political strategy for getting 60 votes in the Senate.

After Tidwell’s talk, stay on the line to learn about our our upcoming Let’s Talk Conference Calls with US Senate Offices. Please alert any teachers and students you know in NORTH CAROLINA, FLORIDA, IOWA and MAINE about and have them get their classes on these calls.  Live in a state not listed? Send us an e-mail at climate@bard.edu, and help us organize a call-in your state.

SCHEDULE OF UPCOMING CALLS (EST):

NORTH CAROLINA:  Friday, March 19th, 12 noon

FLORIDA:  Thursday, March 25th, 4 pm

IOWA: Tuesday, March 30th, 1pm

MAINE: Tuesday, April 13th, 1pm
 
We need your help in the other states in volunteering to convene a call, or just in getting the word out. Our staff will do all the logistical work—contacting Senate staff to set up the calls, soliciting the questions and managing the call. To learn more, give me a call at 845-758-7067 or e-mail us at climate@bard.edu

These are not lobbying calls, but rather educational dialogues.  Students need to understand the positions held by their representatives. And senators need to know that thousands of young people in their states are looking to them to act with moral responsibility to all life on earth.

Thanks for the work you are doing.
