On March 9th, we will be speaking with Alex Barron, Assistant Professor of Environmental Science and Policy, Smith College about jobs and the economic impact of the EPA's Clean Power Plan. From 2011-2015, Alex worked in the Office of Policy at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) where he advised senior EPA leadership and worked on a wide range of environmental regulations, including standards to reduce carbon pollution (including the Clean Power Plan), cross-state air pollution, and mercury and other toxics. 

"We at BCEP feel that Alex's experience working on the Clean Power Plan at the EPA will give us unique insight on the economic impacts of CPP policy at both the micro and macro levels." Eban Goodstein, Director of The Bard Center for Environmental Policy
