social cost of carbon and environmental justice in the United States.
Climate Conversations: The Cost of Carbon, which will be April 15 from 3-4 p.m. EST.
The social cost of carbon is a metric used for incorporating the economic impacts of carbon emissions
into federal decision-making. Justin Worland (TIME) will moderate a conversation with
Richard Newell (Resources for the Future) and Rachel Cleetus (Union of Concerned Scientists)
about the social cost of carbon, its importance for addressing the climate change challenge,
and considerations for how it can advance just and economically sound policies. The conversation
will also touch on the social cost of other greenhouse gases.
Climate Conversations: Pathways to Action is a new monthly webinar series from NASEM
that aims to convene high-level, cross-cutting, nonpartisan conversations about issues relevant to
national policy action on climate change.
