Thoughts on Environmental Economics

Today in TV on the internet

Posted by Daniel Hall on June 24, 2008

Today’s E&ETV broadcast has coverage of last Wednesday’s event here at RFF:

Beyond the emissions reductions goals of a future U.S. climate policy, how should legislation encourage the development of technology and strengthen global partnerships? During today’s E&ETV Event Coverage of a recent Resources for the Future event, a panel of climate experts discusses the broader objectives of a domestic climate policy. Panelists include, Ray Kopp, senior fellow and Climate Policy Program director at Resources for the Future, Nigel Purvis, visiting scholar at Resources for the Future, Linda Cohen, professor of economics and associate dean for research and graduate studies at the School of Social Sciences, University of California-Irvine, and Bob Simon, Democratic staff director of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

The panel discussion at the end of the video (after the three panelists give individual presentations) is particularly interesting. The panelists had a broad range of backgrounds and perspectives, and their insights about each others’ areas of expertise are illuminating.

The session that E&ETV covers here is actually the last of three sessions from an event on designing federal climate policy. The RFF webpage has coverage of all three sessions, including both video and slides from the presenters. I recommend Jake Jacoby’s presentation from the first session, and Howard Gruenspecht’s comments in the second, particularly the last 5 minutes of his presentation and his input from the panel discussion.

Finally, if you’re curious about what the top of my head looks like from behind, you can see it on the bottom-right of the E&ETV video (just left of their logo). I was up front keeping time for the speakers.

    The back of your head seems to be getting a lot of play these days. Did your resume strongly highlight your coiffure and impressive ability to use a stopwatch?
