January Monthly Actions & Meeting W/ Dr. Noah Kaufman, Columbia Univ. Economist

Average Rating:
Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. January's monthly meeting took place on January 9th at 1:00 pm ET and will feature Dr. Noah Kaufman, Columbia Univ. economist.

As we gear up for reintroduction of carbon-fee-and-dividend legislation in the new Congress, we hear from kaufman-jan.pngeconomist Dr. Noah Kaufman, lead author of the 2019 Columbia University assessment of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. The study confirmed the effectiveness of the bill from both an environmental and economic perspective. Dr. Kaufman is Research Scholar at the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia, leading research focused on climate change policies. He also teaches a course on Energy Decarbonization. During the Obama administration, he served as the Deputy Associate Director of Energy & Climate Change at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
