Mar 31: Climate talk and panel

The University of Pittsburgh Honors College in cooperation with Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and The National Aviary presents James K. Boyce on “Climate Policy as Wealth Creation”.

We need to drive investment in renewables and energy efficiency through economic signals, including carbon pricing as well as conventional environmental regulations. If and when we price emissions, via a carbon tax or a cap-and-permit system, a crucial economic and political question is: Who will get the money? Join us for the next Climate Change Lecture by energy economist James K. Boyce from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

a panel discussion will follow the lecture featuring:
    Erica Cochran, Carnegie Mellon University
    Paul Ohodnicki, National Energy Technology Laboratory
    Stephen Rose, Carnegie Mellon Electricity Industry Center
    Moderated by Christina Gabriel, University Energy Partnership

4:30 PM in the University Club (Ballroom B).  For full information about the lecture and to reserve your free seat, go here.
