Webcast: Evaluating our Climate Policy Options

January 29 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Reminder: Evaluating our Climate Policy Options for Accelerating GHG Reduction


Explicit carbon pricing policies (carbon tax, cap-and-trade) are frequently described as the optimal way to achieve GHG reduction targets. But real-world evidence suggests that politicians who are serious about accelerating GHG reduction also employ implicit carbon pricing (command-and-control regulations, flexible regulations). This talk combines evidence from real-world climate policy experiences, political science research on public support for different types of policies, and economic analysis of comparative climate policy cost-effectiveness to evaluate our climate policy options for accelerating GHG reduction. The evidence is primarily drawn from experiences and research in Canada and California.

When: Monday January 29, 2018, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM   (9:00 AM – 10:30 AM  ET)

Where: UBC Asian Centre – Auditorium, 1871 West Mall, Vancouver, B.C
