Bard Center for Environmental Policy Presents

Wednesday, March 16, 2016
National Climate Seminar: Interstate Cooperation and US Climate Policy
Albee B102
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Dr. Dallas Burtraw, Senior Fellow, Resources for the Future

On March 16th, the Bard Center for Environmental Policy spoke with Dr. Dallas Burtraw, Senior Fellow, Resources for the Future. He discusses interstate cooperation on US Climate Policy and the fate of the EPA's Clean Power Plan. Dallas Burtraw is one of the nation’s foremost experts on environmental regulation in the electricity sector. For two decades, he has worked on creating a more efficient and politically rational method for controlling air pollution. He also studies electricity restructuring, competition, and economic deregulation. He is particularly interested in incentive-based approaches for environmental regulation, the most notable of which is a tradable permit system, and recently has studied ways to introduce greater cost-effectiveness into regulation under the Clean Air Act.

"Climate change is a global problem. The contribution of U.S. efforts are greater, in my mind, for the influence they have on the behavior of the other nations of the world than for the specific reductions that the U.S. achieves. The greater contribution is leadership in this case." Dallas Burtraw
