Two recent papers by paper by Dr. David W. Kreutzer and his colleagues present information for climate policy consideration and response. One discusses climate science aspects, all the more important and relevant to policymakers, industry, and the public as measures to address carbon emissions are advanced domestically and globally. The other focuses on the economic implications of the Paris Protocol. 

Join us as Dr. Kreutzer discusses the results of Heritage’s most recent research on these issues. Included will be following: 

Actual data are not trending to an imminent climate crisis 
Climate policies would be ineffective even if we were heading to a crisis
The economic impact of these ineffective policies
