Slowing Climate Change: Plan B

View Slide Presentation

Economists across the political spectrum have long argued that the least costly, least intrusive way to contain greenhouse gases is to charge emitters for the privilege and let the market decide how to cut back. But market-friendly fixes have been rejected by the rapidly growing economies of the developing world and are off the political agenda in the United States. This panel will weigh the prospects for non-market initiatives to contain emissions - everything from subsidizing new emissions-sparing technologies to mandating the use of renewable energy and efficient-efficient vehicles. It will also debate the practicality of an entirely different approach to combating global warming: technology for deflecting solar energy before it heats the atmosphere, thereby offsetting the impact of growing concentrations of greenhouse gases.

Speakers:

Linda Cohen, Professor of Economics and Law, and Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies, School of Social Sciences, University of California, Irvine

Jae Edmonds, Laboratory Fellow and Chief Scientist, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Robert Hahn, Professor of Economics, Sustainable Consumption Institute, University of Manchester

Bjorn Lomborg, Adjunct Professor, Copenhagen Business School; Author, "Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist's Guide to Global Warming"

Moderator:

Peter Passell, Senior Fellow, Milken Institute; Editor, The Milken Institute Review
