CONCERNED ABOUT TRUMP'S CLIMATE POLICIES AND HOW HIS PRESIDENCY WILL FIT IN WITH INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVES? DON'T MISS THIS EVENT! 

Earlier this year Juli Berwald Ph.D pitched a panel to SXSW Eco about climate change. The panel didn't get picked. Instead Juli’s co-panelist Katharine Hayhoe ended up talking about climate change at the White House’s South by South Lawn with President Obama and Leonardo DiCaprio. And now Juli is ready to honor us with their talk! If you care about climate change and the policy implementations it take to ensure a brighter and cleaner future, you do not want to miss this!

While it might seem that climate change is one of the most dismal places to look for news about our future, there are surprising examples of progress appearing all the time. Good ideas not only abound, they are being implemented. In the wake of the Paris Climate Agreement coming into force, this talk will cover a number of steps we’ve made toward a reducing carbon pollution with particular focus on Carbon Fee and Dividend (CFD). CFD is an economic idea for limiting carbon pollution with so few regulations that even conservative think tanks back it. It will also present the methods for influencing climate change policy used by the Citizen’s Climate Lobby, who have endorsed CFD as the best way to ensure a safe future for all of us.
