ConservAmerica: Examining the Pros and Cons of Carbon Pricing Policies
Members of Congress are increasingly embracing the realities of climate change and the need to implement policies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Putting a price on carbon is considered by many to be the most efficient and transparent policy approach to encourage emission cuts. Many in the businesses community are supporting a carbon pricing mechanism as preferable to other approaches.
Please join ConservAmerica on Wednesday, July 21st at 1:00 pm (EST) for a webinar on carbon pricing. Panelists will discuss the rationale for carbon pricing as well as the various issues associated with it. The webinar will explore different ways carbon pricing can be implemented, its potential impact on various industries, potential alternatives, its effectiveness in reducing emissions, international implications, and the political dynamics in Congress.
