On September 19, 2019, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a final rule to determine that California may not adopt or enforce regulations of carbon dioxide emissions from motor vehicles. This rule upends nearly 50 years of clean air policy and disrupts an area of climate policy that has been relatively stable for almost a decade. The state of California and 22 other states, along with the cities of Washington DC, Los Angeles and New York, immediately filed suit. In this webinar, panelists will examine the legal and policy issues that this agency action raises.
Policymakers and researchers are working to better understand how climate change will affect key sectors of the economy, how we can best adapt to these impacts, and how to communicate the economic urgency of the crisis. At the Institute for Policy Integrity’s annual conference, experts and policymakers from around the country discussed how we can better estimate, prepare for, and communicate the high cost of inaction.
Policy Integrity is hosting the launch of a new book, “Discerning Experts: The Practices of Scientific Assessment for Environmental Policy.” Written by Michael Oppenheimer, Naomi Oreskes, Dale Jamieson, Keynyn Brysse, Jessica O’Reilly, Matthew Shindell, and Milena Wazeck, the book assesses how scientists deliberate and decide on the facts that guide environmental policy and action.
The event will include a discussion with the authors and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Dan Fagin, and a reception afterwards. It is co-sponsored by NYU School of Law and NYU’s Department of Environmental Studies.
