A Carbon "Price is Right": Harnessing the market to drive down carbon emission. Pricing carbon is viewed by economists left, right and center as the simplest and most effective way to reduce carbon emissions. Momentum is growing: Carbon fee and dividend (CFD) and cap and trade policies are currently used, or are planned, in many parts of the world. How do they work? How might they affect the poor, and our economy in general? This panel will explore the challenges and opportunities of market-driven strategies to address the climate crisis. Panelists will be: Dr. Knute Nadelhoffer (moderator), Dr. Barry Rabe and Dr. Sam Stolper of the UMich and Dr. Lisa Del Buono of the Citizens Climate Lobby. Co-sponsored by AADL, UM School for Environment & Sustainability (SEAS), UM Energy Institute, CCL.
