*9/25/17: “Climate Policy: putting a price on carbon emissions”, Fort Lewis College, Noble Hall Rm 130, 7PM
We have two national experts confirmed to make presentations then sit in a panel format to discuss emissions trading and carbon tax policy mechanisms. Yoram Bauman will be our expert to discuss carbon tax. Yoram was one of the architects of the State of Washington’s carbon tax ballot initiative last November, the first state to attempt this. Patrick Cummins, with the Center for a New Energy Economy in Fort Collins will be our emissions trading expert. Patrick is leading the center’s efforts with 11 western states to be in compliance with the Clean Power Plan, an emissions trading program. Do plan to attend this one and watch for an op-ed piece about it in the Herald a few days before this.
