Environmental Economics Seminar Series

Our Environmental Economics Seminar Series is a forum on issues significant to U.S. domestic and global environmental policy with some of the field's leading experts.

We invite economists and researchers, policymakers, and the media to join us to explore important climate policy questions with leading economic experts and hear about the latest high-impact research on economics-based climate policy.

This “technology lock-in” increases the emissions costs of delayed action on carbon policy and has significant implications for incumbent decision makers.
