MIT Climate CoLab Webinar to discuss U.S. carbon price, opportunities for innovation, May 19, 12 noon

  • 19 May 2015
Event Description

On May 19, at 12 p.m. EDT, the MIT Climate CoLab will host an online conversation with George P. Shultz, former U.S. Secretary of State; Phil Sharp, former U.S. representative (D-IN) and current President of Resources for the Future; and Bob Inglis, former U.S. representative (R-SC) and current director of RepublicEN. The discussion will be moderated by Leah Stokes, a PhD candidate at MIT graduating this spring.

The panelists are advisors for a contest run out of the MIT Climate CoLab, which seeks novel policies, political or social mobilization strategies, or other methods that could lead to the enactment of a price on carbon emissions and/or other greenhouse gases in the United States, either through action by the U.S. Congress or otherwise.

The Climate CoLab is a growing community of experts and non-experts working together to address climate change challenges.
