The Future of Climate Policy: Experts Discuss Carbon Pricing

Massachusetts is at the forefront of climate policy, with an opportunity to lead the nation in implementing carbon pricing legislation. Experts across the political spectrum agree that putting a fee on carbon pollution is the most cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, incentivizing a flexible shift toward clean energy. Right now, two bills moving through the Massachusetts state legislature could bring carbon pricing to our state.

Come join MIT Climate Action for a panel discussion on climate policy and carbon pricing in Massachusetts, featuring leading voices on the issue from politics and academia. Bertucci's pizza will be served at a reception following the talk. Our panelists are:

* Sen. Michael Barrett, author of MA carbon pricing bill

* Rep. Jennifer Benson, author of MA carbon pricing bill

* Prof. John Reilly, Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research

* Prof. Christopher Knittel, MIT Sloan economics

* Dr. Marc Breslow, research and policy director for Climate XChange

* Prof. Janelle Knox-Hayes, MIT urban studies and planning
